Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here.The rooms are small, but you won't be spending time in them anyway. There is a pool and spa and a rooftop terrace restaurant. Everything is clean and comfortable.

Can't sing the praises of this beautiful boutique hotel enough. The decor is in keeping with the style of the original Orient Express. The location is perfect for all the main attractions in Istanbul. Ali, the doorman, deserves a special mention - very attentive & helpful.

We stayed for 4 nights over the Easter weekend 2014 and were not disappointed. Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Spice Bazar, Archeological Museum, Basilica Cistern, Sultan Tombs, Gulhane Park, local ferries across the water are all wthin a 5 to 7 minute walk so the location is ideal. The staff were always helpful with very useful local knowledge. The... More

My family and I just returned from Istanbul yesterday, and we already miss the city and the people at the Orient Express Hotel! We stayed there for 8 nights, and the staff made the hotel really feel like a home away from home. The rooms were clean, lovely, and just the right size. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful...

... and we weren't dissappointed. Because we had stayed here before, we decided to stay in Istanbul on our way home after a trip in Asia. It is nicely located so it is an easy walk tom many of the sights like the Topkapi Palce, the Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque. In the other direction, the Spice Market and... More

My stay at the Orient Express Hotel was only a single night but it was a wonderful experience. From the time I made the reservation, the staff offered help that was invaluable. Airport transportation, currency flexibility, dinner reservation and assistance with a short time of sightseeing. The responses were so prompt and helpful. All the connections were flawless. The room... More

From start to finish the Orient Express didn't disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and happy to help in whatever way they could. Arriving to a decent sized room with complimentary Turkish delight was just what we needed after a long day travelling. The breakfast was excellent, with a great choice of food. We also tried the restaurant on the... More

This is a good little hotel in a great location - conveniently situated for many tourist attractions. Our room was comfortable with everything we needed although it was a little small without much storage space. This did not bother us but may not suit some people. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were given the option of having... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic. We walked everywhere around Sultanhamet and Beyoglu from here. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful, and could not have done more to help us enjoy our stay. We asked for a quiet room and had a double at the back of the hotel. Unfortunately there was building work going on... More
