I stay at the Armada whenever I come to Istanbul. It is conveniently located to all the sights in Sultanahmet as well as to the fish restaurants in Kumkapi. Has amenities of a larger hotel but has its own personality and very nice decor. Some rooms have views onto the old Byzantine wall and the sea. Excellent breakfast buffet with... More

Hotel is located near the old town - it is about 15 minutes walk on cobbled streets and alleys. Hotel itself is nice - the entrance not so promising though - run down and rather depressing. Breakfast is served on a terrace overlooking the sea. you can squeeze your own fresh orange juice and the choice of deserts and pastry... More

The Armada hotel was close to the Old City and tram but not quite as close as I had hoped. It was 10-15 mins walk uphill. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and dinner could be taken at the hotel if you wished. There was a nice bar and lounge which included a Jazz singer on... More

I returned to this hotel after four years and found it still to be a good value. The rooms are not large but they are nicely decorated. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast in the rooftop restaurant is outstanding. This hotel is convenient to all the old city attractions either by taxi or on foot. There was no... More

We visited this hotel as we were traveling with our parents. As a result our budget was a little higher! It is excellently located with the terrace restaurant providing a beautiful view over both the harbour and the Blue Mosque. The rooms were good and the service was excellent. The doorman in the evening was particularly friendly! The highlight was... More

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 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
