The hotel is smack dab in the middle of Sultanahmet, with LOTS to do all around it. The train station is very close by and everything is within walking distance. But the room is dingy at best, and the restroom was dirty. I guess it was pretty decent given its low price, but I wouldn't really recommend it.

The hotel was very nice. It was clean and everything looked very nice. The people working in the hotel were very kind and were able to help me with everything.

This hotel was surprisingly lovely - better than other reviews had led us to believe so we were quite nervous! The room is a very good size and yes the view out the window is rubbish but you're hardly in Istanbul to spend time in the hotel room so for the price we were delighted. Plus, you have the roof...

I must say the welcome to the hotel was second to none. The morning staff are extremely helpful, we were offered complementary Turkish biscuits on arrival. Fur-ouch on reception sat down with us and explained where to go and what to do. Throughout the four days we were in Istanbul if ever we had a question he was always willing... More

Great hotel in the historic neighbourhood Sultanahmet. Close to the transport hub Sirkeci as well as to the Galata bridge. Nice and clean with friendly staff. You definitely get more than you pay for!

I stayed there for 3 nights in the month of December 2014, the staff were helpful and prompt on arrival. The hotel was good, location is very near to Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and Blue mosque. Very lively area and near to tram station. This hotel is good value for money.

This hotel is situated close to both the train station and tram stops - which is really handy! It is easy walking distance to most of the major attractions, which is a great plus. The rooms seem to be a bit hit n miss - some are very small for two people with two large suitcases, others are really large.... More

I recently stayed at the Orka Royal Hotel in Istanbul. This hotel is central to all the main attractions in Istanbul. My stay at this hotel was pure pleasure as the service, food and excellent rooms were of a high standard, I will definitely visit the Orka Royal Hotel again on my next visit to Istanbul.

Felt shocked when the hotel charged me towards food which was not consumed by us.it was disgusting. Rediculous experience.We had not time to argue as my flight was getting delayed. I Will not recommend to any of my friends.

Centrally located small hotel. Very handy to everything. You can walk to all major attractions. I got sick on the flight to Turkey. They took full care of me with a doctor coming straight to our room and performing miricles. Good caring staff.
