After staying on the other side of town and being bitterly disappointed with our last hotel choice, we were nervous about our next hotel. The last one, the Cenevre, really put us off Istanbul. This hotel well and truly made up for it. Great location and absolutely beautiful inside. Not to mention the brilliant service. We have high expectations and... More

We stayed only one night at this hotel but we were very impressed with the level of quality and service. Before our arrival, all my emails were promptly answered and a reservation at the wonderful Imbat Restaurant was efficiently made. For a few days before our check-in, we were staying in a rental apartment in Galata. I wanted to leave... More

We chose the Orient Express as it was well priced and appeared to be located close to most tourist attractions. We were not disappointed. The Hotel is excellently located. We walked to most sights and took the tram (which is practically at the front door) to sights located further away. There are lots of choices for eating nearby, but don't... More

Very friendly staff, very accommodating as we arrived ear;y in he morning and a room was made ready for us straightaway. It was, however, not a peak time. The hotel is within very easy walking distance of the major attractions (Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia and Topkapi Palace and has direct access to the very cheap tram network. The small heated... More

This hotel is right in the middle of the old city center. Just 1 km away from the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and Blue mosque. In the neighbourhood are a lot of little shops and restaurants. The room was very nice and the a/c worked well and silently. The little pool in the cellar is nice to cool after a... More

Our family of five stayed at the Orient Express from the 15th -21st November 2014 and we only have good things to say about this hotel. We requested for an early check in when we made our reservation as our flight from Kuala Lumpur will be arriving at 5 am local time, anticipating some additional charges to be imposed. To... More
