Staff service is very good. Some rooms need maintenance especially for toilets. I tried rooms 401 and 613 (which I was in about 15 days ago). Also, the elevator makes a noisy voice which is irritating especially when people are asleep.

Just got home from an amazing 4 night stay in Istanbul . This hotel is in a busy area but it would be hard to find a quiet area in Istanbul to be truthful. Although on a busy road, our room was on the first floor and faced the road but we were not bothered by street noise at night.... More

We stayed in this hotel during early May 2013. We usually stay in Taksim when visiting Istanbul, but this time we decided to change the area and picked the area of Laleli, and the Istanbul Royal hotel. The best part of the hotel is the easy access to the Aksaray tram station, you need only 1 minute walking. The hotel... More

This hotel is a fair price for what you get, it was comfortable with a limited but adequate breakfast. Ask for a room on the upper floors (we stayed on the 7th floor) as the street can be noisy. It is a 2 minutes walk from Aksaray tram station which is very convenient for accessing all the sights in the... More
