The Armada was a wonderful place to stay precruise. Clean, courteous staff. With excellent English. All major Old Istanbul attractions within walking distance. Reasonable rates with an amazing breakfast included.

We stayed at this hotel in September for five nights and were please with it's in great location. Very close to all the tourist attractions, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia etc. Most are within walking distance, although up a steep hill. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the beds were comfortable, which made a change from other hotels I've stayed... More

We stayed at Armada Old City Hotel during a weekend trip to Istanbul. Since it is situated in the centre of the historical part, the hotel is perfect if you don't have plenty of time. All the sights (Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Palace, etc.) are within 10 min walking distance. There is also a huge variety of restaurants nearby. Furthermore,... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Armada Istanbul Old City Hotel from Oct. 26-31 '14. Right off the bat, we were enchanted by the foyer of the hotel, with its lovely, understated, historical theme, its restful fountain with its five turtles basking in the pool below and the quiet, happy chirping of the birds in the large, ornate...

Well located in the old city/Sultanahmet area. Easy walking distance to the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cisterns, etc. The views from the dining area and the rooftop patio were fabulous (the Bosphorus and the Blue Mosque). Food was great and plentiful, staff was friendly and very helpful. My room was not large, but very comfortable and very clean.... More

The Armada was clean, comfortable and well staffed. Within walking distance of the Mosques and the Grand and Spice Bazars. Food and service at the roof top restaurant was excellent. The breakfast bar had a great selection including fresh squeezed orange juice. A real treat to eat and view the Blue Mosque and the shipping on the Bosphorus. The Armada... More
