Stayed here for 2 nights. Location is great. Close to most of the sightseeing spots in Istanbul. Rooms are clean, but I was unlucky to get a room at the corner with a view on a not-so-nice building. A/C noise from outside can be disturbing at night (probably unlucky to get the corner room). Breakfast is so-so, but free of... More

Hotel was comfortable and staff very helpful and accomodating to all needs. Close to tram, train and hop on hop off bus, but also in walking distance of main sites from old town. Pool on roof was great, and view from their also very good.

Stayed for three nights, with family and friends, during Easter and booked three rooms. Check-in took a lot of time, as Xerox wasn't working. At the time of stay the hotel was undergoing a refurbishment, the staff told us that the rooms we had been given were new, but one of the rooms was smelling of smoke and another room... More

There are a good number of positives and negatives to this place I'll try to go over as man has I can. But let me just say that it is definitely not a 4 star hotel at least by American standards by any means. Positives: - good location in sirkeci. It's right in the middle between the sirkeci and gulhane... More

I really enjoyed this location but you must be careful of a few things: First- make sure you are on a floor without screaming babies-there was one down the hall from us and you heard the child more frequently than the call to prayer as if the child was in your room and second-do not arrive to breakfast after 8...

This was our first trip to Istanbul and the hotel was brilliant! Yes there was a building site next door, but there's really not much they can do about that! The rooms are very clean and the staff are absolutely brilliant - especially with my 2 year old son! Now, the only thing stopping me from giving this hotel 5*... More

As of May 2014, the pool on the rook was open and functional. The hotel is under renovations so all features are not perfect. Problems with magnetic keys, towel bars not properly fixed, TV not working. Otherwise, the hotel is very nice, clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. The location is perfect to walk (4 minutes) to... More

Orka has small rooms with modern facilities. It's well located within tourist areas near the Topkapi Palace, Bosphorus River, Spice Bazaar and train stations. Staffs are helpful and are always ready with recommendations.
