The staff and location in the Old City cannot be matched. All requests prior to arrival were handled quickly and promptly. Engle met us at the front door and sat with us and gave us a map and suggestions for out time in Istanbul prior to our cruise. We only had 2 days and wish we had had more time.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. From our first contact with Egle, by email, being greeted at the door, to the moment we left the staff did all they could to be of service. The room was clean and serviced daily, with towels, bed remade as well as water and Turkish delight refreshed. Located no more than 30 mins from the... More

Very nice and abundant breakfast and the staff is really friendly, warm and very proffesional, ready for helpful suggestions related to addresses, city tours, restaurantes and shopping! I highly recommend this... More

We have visited this hotel before and the welcome was as friendly as ever. All the staff were cheerful and very attentive. Our room was at the front of the hotel and contained all the amenities that we required. Sometimes a bit noisy from the trams but the ear plugs did the trick! The hotel's location is superb so that... More

This hotel probably has the most friendly staff members I've ever encountered. They take the time to tell you some of the best things to see and do while you are in Istanbul. After this, you'll get the key to your room which is superclean. There bed is great and there's even some Turkish delight standing on the cupboard waiting... More

The Orient Express Hotel is in the best place for most of the attractions in Istanbul. You can walk to the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi and the Gulhane Park are just around the corner. If you are weary, get the tram back. It stops 150 metres from the hotel. The tram will also take you across... More

It is so close to all the historical places, on the other side it is right on the tram way and near to most of the ferry stations. I have stayed their for 10 days, I didn't have to take... More
