Nice hotel, helpful staff, great location in the heart of former Byzantine and Ottoman capital. we had been checked in much earlier than 12:00. Reception is quite responsive and helpful in arranging your itinerary, calling taxi and the like.

We booked this best on other Tripadvisor reviews and were really impressed with the result. The hotel is wonderfully located to hit all the old city sights, but not right in the middle of the noise. The rooms were clean and well stocked with tea making facilities and complimentary water. Breakfast (included) was on the 3rd floor giving a great... More

We stayed in this hotel in 2009 and were very pleasantly impressed with the quality of service. In 2014 we visited Istanbul old center and decided again to stay at Armada. It was the right choice and our expectations were highly met. Friendly personnel and diverse rich breakfast buffet gave us a great start everyday during our stay !

My husband and I stayed here for a week in February and can really recommend this lovely Turkish hotel. The "apartment" room was very spacious, comfortable, modern and clean in the building next to the main hotel building, with a roof garden terrace for the apartment guests. The main hotel building is charming with Ottoman details and has a bigger... More
