I arranged for a large group of family and friends from throughout the world to stay at the hotel in late August for my brother's wedding. We booked over a dozen rooms and our group ranged from two year old children to grandparents in their late 70s. In short, the staff were fantastic and did everything they could to help... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend. Due to its location all interesting places are on walking distance or easily could be reached by tram and ferry. We enjoyed the hospitality of Orient Express Hotel and very much appreciated the friendliness and thoughtfulness of its staff.

The service here is faultless and every effort is made to ensure your stay is comfortable. Our first room had an odour of cigarette smoke which we reported, within 10 minutes we were moved to another room that was perfect. Breakfast is fabulous with choices to suit everyone including cereal, fruit, eggs, toast, pastries etc... Dinner on the rooftop is... More

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

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.
