There’s always a danger that returning to a place that you enjoyed so much previously can ruin a good memory. Thankfully our stay at Hotel Armada was just as pleasant this time as it was the last. The experience at breakfast alone is good enough reason to stay at this hotel; a fantastic range of food, set out on the... More

Good clean and comfortable hotel. In the more upmarket touristy area of Sultanamet and in a slightly quieter. So < 5 minutes walk to restaurants and 10 minutes walk to Mosques and Topkapi. Slightly further away than some other hotels, but only by a couple of minutes walk Very nice breakfast room. Nice quality touches: - Free and good quality... More

This smallish hotel is close to the Blue Mosque, the Palace and Hagia Sophia. It is clean, the food is great and the staff is friendly and very helpful. Free WiFi and beautiful roof-top area overlooking Istanbul for dining or late-night drinks.

I recently spent one night at the Armada in Istanbul and loved it. I have stayed at many Sultanahmet hotels over the years but have never found one that I loved enough to go back to. I will go back to the Armada. The building feels modern but is done up in a very convincing old ottoman style, from the... More

Visited Istanbul for business and stayed in this hotel. Hotel itself is fine. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Rooms are good sized, but a little bit outdated. Location is perfect, close to main attractions. The breakfast is more than what I expected. A nice combination of European and Turkisch dishes. The view from the terrace... breathtaking!

I had four nights at this hotel, and at AUD 264 per night, I expected better. My room, which faced a side street, was subjected to the smell of stale cigarette smoke for the duration of my stay. Leaving the windows open all day and night achieved nothing. Whilst the hotel did their best to rectify the problem by putting... More

Great location, right by sea in quiet area, but only 5 minutes walk to lots of great restaurants,(especially the Cosy Garden restaurant where the food was fabulous and all the staff were very welcoming) and 10 minutes walk to most of the tourist attractions including Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia, Topkapi Palace & Basilica cistern etc. Rooms are charming, beautifully decorated,...
