This is a lovely hotel. Clean and welcoming.the swimming pool is a great place to relax.. The location is very central to the main sites. But the next door building is being renovated, and the building works are very noisy.

My wife and I booked a long weekend away and we loved our stay at this hotel! It's in the heart of the old town and minutes away from Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia which is such a great plus point. It's also very near the tramline which is great for getting further out into Istanbul. There are some nice... More

They had not been told that we would arrive that early. We were offered a free shower with towels in the swimming pool changing rooms while they prepared a room... More

The Orient Express Hotel is excellent, the location is perfect, and the staff is outstanding. It is also an incredible bargain. We stayed seven nights in late March/early April. Our free transfer on Saturday night from the airport to the hotel was quite an experience. The traffic was amazing and at times a bit crazy. But once we arrived at... More

If you are looking for a fine, centrally located hotel in Istanbul, you should go for the Orient Express Hotel. The staff is friendly, helpful and smiling – not only professionally, but in a way where you really feel like being their only customer. In particular we received lots of tips, advice and help from Egle, the guest relations manager.... More
