I am not sure why previous guests have given this hotel a poor review, I think they were just crabby. I thought it was great. Yes the street is not that pretty, but the hotel is centrally located to everything, the palace, Eminonu, the tram, Hagya Sofia,etc. etc. etc. Everything is within easy walking distance!!! The staff is helpful. Their... More

we arrived at the hotel with prepaid reservations, only to find the hotel was overbooked and we had been moved to an equivalent hotel standard, The Prince, for our First night, which was a lovely hotel. So when they said same standard, I was looking forward to completing my stay at the Orka. Well not only is this hotel not... More

This is a friendly hotel and close by all the good attractions of the city. We had the luck to get a Dutch trainee in this Hotel so he give us a lot of information for this wonderfull trip. The hotel is in the old part of Istanbul so cloes to the Blue Mosque and the Galatabridge.

Very well-placed modernised hotel, right near the hub of the European side of the city. It is an easy and interesting 20min walk west to the Old Bazaar. Or walk 20min south to pass through the Sultanahmet quarter. It is also very well connected. Sirkeci mainline rail station is a 5min walk, and has a tram-stop with access to the... More

We stayed at the Royal Orka last week. We were very disappointed with the basics that we got. There was no tea facilities in the room, neither did we have blankets to cover with. The breakfast was very basic, and the staff spoke no English. We were even charged for a cup of hot water that was sent to the... More

We stayed for 8 nights. On the positive side you definitely have the location in Sirceci, in a quiet side street. We were lucky the building site a cross the road went bankrupt, so for that side we had no disturbance. But beware, Istanbul is full if building sites, so it is hard to escape them. Most of the front... More
