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 !

We spent most of our time in Turkey in this hotel right by the sea in the heart of the Old City in Istanbul and were glad we did. The accommodations are immaculate and modern and very nicely appointed and the beds and bedding the nicest I have experienced. The hotel staff is very friendly and ready to help with... More

This Hotel has a location very close to the blue mosque which make it a good choice to 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

Absolutely great experience, good and well mannered staff, especially Mr. Talip(Security officer) Erdam, Ibrahim and two ladies at the reception. We arrived way too early at the hotel, and the gentleman at the reception offered us a room imediately, which was great. Breakfast was excellent and great choices. First day may take you 10mins to walk to blue mosque and... More

We loved this place, and if we are so lucky to go back to Istanbul again, would stay here in a heartbeat. The hotel has a lot of comfort, charm, beauty, quality, and practical features- it's hard to beat the location (an easy few minute walk from the biggies- Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque, but it's tucked away on a...

We stayed at Armada Old City in February. We are a party of 3, 1 adult 2 children. We found the location in Sultanahmet to be superb, we were a short walk from Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, the cistern and Blue Mosque. There are plenty of restaurants, a small bazaar and a few simple mini-markets in the area, along with... More

Hotel is a little disappointing, as it is not European 4 stars hotel. Tiny walls, you can hear you neighbour. Pleasant saff. Great location. WIFI coverage perfect. Breakfast table is full of different spices we do not know what to do with them. Maybe too Turkish for us. So basicaly you can eat scrambled eggs with vegetables.
