I stayed here last week with my wife and two sons (aged 4 and 1). This really is a great hotel in a great location. Gulhane and Sikerci Tram stations are 3 minutes walking distance from the hotel. The Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and Basilica Cistern are all within walking distance. Also on the the same road as the hotel... More

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful hotel mid-july for a long weekend. We wanted something central, near the typical monuments like Ayia Sophia and our choice turned out perfect!Everything is walking distance, the tram line is a 3-min walk as is Sirkeci station and the ferry. We blown away by the quality of the staff and the degree... More

Excellent start to an Istanbul vacation. Just minutes from the tram stop. Extremely attentive staff. As other posters noted, small rooms, but considering you are in the midst of old istanbul, quite satisfactory. Very good value.

The location is great, 10 min walking from all the historic sights. The staff is wonderful, Ali is the best. The breakfast buffet is awesome, as well as the restaurant on the roof. The rooms are ok, not bad, not great. I do recommend this hotel for a leaisure visit.

The staff can make or break any hotel. In this case, they make. Everyone from receptionist to housekeeping did a great job in making me feel welcomed. The rooms are very small and very basic, which is understandable in this part of town. I got a quiet room that overlooked a shabby backyard. I was given a choice between this... More

We loved this Hotel, from the first impression of the Staff through to the location, views from our room and helpful staff. The reception team were helpful at all times and Ozlem, the customer relations lady sat us down and gave us a complete introduction to Istanbul as this was our first visit. The hotel is well located & the... More

I am the a resort General Manager in another part of the world and I was completely delighted by my experience at the Orient Express. I was curious my first afternoon at folks down below in the street stopping to photograph the hotel, so I went down and across the street to look. Discovering the almost Bavarian flower boxes outside... More

Great hotel in an excellent hotel - with such incredibly friendly and accommodating staff - they gave us complimentary breakfast as we arrived at 7am despite that not being part of our deal and gave us so much advice and help - really made our stay in Istanbul. Thank you!

We had no knowledge of this hotel until having it recommended to us by AVIOS. We hadn't asked for a hotel transfer from the Airport, since our 5-night stay apparently didn't entitle us to one: another time we would ask, since, with sizeable luggage, the only practical alternative is some form of taxi. Once we were there, the staff went... More
