After researching for days and narrowing down hotels for a good experience, We finally decided to stay at Magnaura Palace for two days during a stopover. The hotel is literally 2-5 mins walk from the main attractions like the blue mosque, Hagia Sophia etc. The tram is pretty close by if your looking to go to Taksim or explore the... More

Every staff person treated us as family! The owner never failed to assist us when asked or not asked. Hey, when was the last time a hotel owner gave you roses when he learned it was your birthday? It's true, he did. We felt like royals at the MAGNAURA PALACE.

Mehmet and his team are very nice, professional in accormadation and are always ready to help. My wife and I enjoied two wonderful days here with nice room, well-functioned facilities, and beautiful view of Bosporus strait in roof breakfast. The location is really to Sultanahmet and convinient to shops, restaurants. 我和妻子在这里度过了非常舒适的两天,房子干净漂亮,设施很新也很好用。酒店的特色是楼顶可以全景看到博斯普鲁斯海峡,早餐体验很棒!另外,酒店与周围几家小店相比服务很专业,能提供很好的服务。酒店就在蓝色清真寺旁边,啥都挺方便的。

This hotel is a great surprise! The location is perfect! A few steps from the main Sultanhamet's monuments! The buffet breakfast on the roof with the amazing view on the Bosphore is the best way to start the day! The staff is really really kind and helpful. Shuttle service makes the transferts easier... the rooms are big and clean. I... More

The people who run this hotel are completely on the ball and define service with a smile. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location was just great and had the famous historical sites (Blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc) at your doorstep. I was delighted I chose this hotel for a 4Night business trip - it was a 3... More

I am hesitant to write this, as the staff and owner of this hotel are tne nicest people you could hope to meet, but we were very disappointed in the room. The lighting was awful, there was no place to unpack into, the bathroom was tiny. We booked the largest room, hoping for luxury and space, but found the room... More

My daughter and I traveled to Istanbul to celebrate my birthday. After many searches for the right place to stay, we decided on the Magnaura Palace. We could not have picked a better location to stay! The staff was simply outstanding - from front desk to cleaning staff!

We took a taxi from the airport that we got ourselves. He got a little lost and when we arrived he tried charging us almost double what the hotel had told us it would cost.
