We stayed here this May and we received a very warm welcome in the hotel. The receptionist immediately asked if we wanted some information about the city, which ofcourse we were glad to receive. He was very helpful in telling us were all the highlights are. All the highlights are on walking distance. What a great city it is! Beautiful,... More

The following is from an email I sent to the Orient Express hotel: "Thank you for your welcome home email and we'd like to tell you we really enjoyed our 2 night stay at your hotel. The bowl of Turkish Delight in the room was a really nice touch which was truly appreciated. We dined at the roof top restaurant... More

Is an excellent small and beautiful 3 stars Hotel in the old city area. Well located, breakfast amazing and superrrrrr staff. If you want to save time and just walk 5 min to all main attractions, do not hesitate for booking. Wifi, airport transfer, room service, restaurant, money exchange ... 5 stars service Sure that we come back.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. It's walking distance to all the major attractions of the old part of Istanbul, and there are lots of good restaurants right at the door. The staff and management were very helpful, and the room, although not huge, was well appointed and comfortable.

Once again we had an excellent stay at the Orient Express. We were en route to Gallipoli and Troy and experienced a wonderful welcome from all the staff. We were provided with a take away breakfast on two occasions when travelling early which was great. The staff were most attentive to our needs at all times. We enjoyed the variety... More

Great location, perfect for all the sites of Sultanahmet (Old Istanbul) and for the ferries. The staff (especially Egle, the guest relations manager) were extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them and they genuinely seemed pleased to have us as guests. The hotel was nicely furnished and maintained, with very nice ambiance. We spent 6 nights... More

We stayed at this hotel after one of our friends recommended it although he had not stayed himself, he had heard great reports for it. He lives in Alanya so we decided to choose this establishment. We could not have stayed anywhere more central. We had a room 705 at the back of hotel with good views across the Bosporus,... More

This is a lovely hotel. Clean and welcoming.the swimming pool is a great place to relax.. The location is very central to the main sites. But the next door building is being renovated, and the building works are very noisy.

My wife and I booked a long weekend away and we loved our stay at this hotel! It's in the heart of the old town and minutes away from Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia which is such a great plus point. It's also very near the tramline which is great for getting further out into Istanbul. There are some nice... More

We were amazed at the quality of the service offered by all the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived at 5am after travelling by train and bus overnight. They had not been told that we would arrive that early. We were offered a free shower with towels in the swimming pool changing rooms while they prepared a room... More
