New, modern, clean hotel. I would call it a correct tourist hotel. The biggest advantage is the perfect location, at walking distance from Sultanahmet and just one tram station from Perra. Did not really like the breakfast, not much diversity and the restaurant do not make you feel comfortable. They had a problem with the disinfection, or both disinfection and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of May, by myself. The staff were helpful and prompt on arrival, the room key system was being repaired and so a porter took my bags and let me in my room. The room itself, like the bathroom, was spotlessly clean and well made up. It looked relatively new/updated with a... More

The Orca Royal is a fairly modern 7 floor hotel with a large lobby, quite small but adequate and clean guestroom and a low ceiling breakfast room and two lifts that have problem keeping up with traffic in rush hours. Rooms do not enjoy great views and beds are not very long and not very wide either. The hotel however... More

Overall my experience was positive. For a mid-range hotel it was well situated, good breakfast buffet, room comfortable. However enough niggles I'd probably not make a return trip. The "on" light on the air con was so bright it cast a shadow. I was fine, but several of my fellow travelers complained about noise either from outside or other rooms.... More

Our tour started from this hotel, and it was a very nice surprise. The pictures on their website are accurate. Walking distance to all the main attractions (Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque etc) almost on the tram line, for very easy movement around the area. Breakfast very good with good variety. Staff helpfull, with reasonable English skills. Bar restaurant meals excellent,... More

Flying visit to the city, location of the hotel was great and only walking distance from all the main sights and places of interest, lots of shops, barbers and food places line the streets for as far as you can see, the tramline is a stone throw away and leads to every part of the city, the hotel was better...

Great location for the Istanbul tourist, we stayed three nights and found the hotel staff courteous and friendly. The room was a little small but on a par with many in big cities. Breakfast is worth doing as there was loads of variety. Nothing was a problem, including adapters, storing luggage, providing a shuttle to the airport, making it easy... More
