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.

Stayed in April, we arrived late and so were given the tiniest room on the floor. We could not actually fit both our bags into the room. Fortunately we read another tripadvisor review which suggested relocating the room furniture into the hallway - we moved our chair out into the hall, in front of the firehose. We were given a...

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
