Given the location and price, one cannot complain about the tiny rooms. Unfortunately we had a bad experience with the smell coming from the sewer of the bathroom. We complained, and they put some fragrance to mask it and it sort of worked for a day. Then it was really stinky again. The staff was courteous , but I don't... More

We stayed at the Megara Palace Hotel for five nights. It was an absolute pleasure staying here. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is fantastic, just down the road from Hagia Sophia and close to restaurants. The breakfast included in the price is very generous and varied. I would recommend the hotel highly and would easily... More

My wife, myself and adult daughter stayed for five nights toward the end of October. We found the reviews of the place prior to our visit were pretty accurate. We had a family room that suited it's purpose. The location is within a short walk to the major attractions. We loved having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Bosporous. As... More

My husband and I stayed in Megara Palace in October of 2014 as a final step of a 20 day trip from St. Louis MO (USA) to Japan and Turkey. I could honestly say this was a true dessert! The location is unbeatable: walking to Agia Sophia, The Blue Mosque, Topcapi palace, (all 2-3 min) even walking to all the... More

I spent 4 nights here in October, and I'd stay here again just on the basis of the location and the friendly staff. The rooms were average and clean, but not modern by any means. However, it has that charming homey feel, and I felt like I had travelled back in time looking out the window at the Topkapi Palace.... More
