Excellent location, near all attractions in Sultanahmed. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms with coffee and tea faciclities, don't miss the swimming pool and Imbat restaurant! Excellent wi-fi signal. Staff extremely polite and helpful. Great value for maney! I'm certainly going to stay in Orient Express next time I visit Istanbul.

If you exit the hotel and turn left, you can walk to Topkapi palace (10 minutes), then Aya Sofia (13minutes from hotel , 3 from Topkapi Palace), then blue mosque (15 mins from hotel,... More

A delightful small family run hotel tucked away in the side streets of a bustling city, a really great location. The staff were extremely polite and friendly and always there to offer help and advice on where to go, what to see and what's the best way to travel around Istanbul, they even sorted out our on-line boarding passes for...

Edaz, Cihan, and Ali made you feel that you were staying with friends. Ali is as competent as any hotel concierge in Istanbul...arranging a lunch at the Four Seasons, a Turkish bath at the most amazing 450 year old facility I have ever seen...to finding us a good laundry and dry cleaner. All of the staff here serves the same... More

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
