It is rare that you can find both Historical Boutique Hotel and Comfortable/roomy Hotel left from Last Days of Ottoman time period. Building is much beautiful form inside than outside. It is very impressive and very not e to look to ground floor from inside balconies. We have had a strategy review meeting for 6 people and it worked very... More

Some of the rooms are renovated some will be done this winter (they say) . We stayed in one of the renovated room which was great . This hotel is my only... More

A wonderful hospitality site built in 1911 especially as a hotel. (Many other hotels and pansions are located in former family houses). A really big hotel for the Prince's Islands by the way, with the outdoor swimming pool. But no conditioning system - seems same reasons as with no autos on the Island. We were lucky to book a corner... More

The name of this wonderful hotel could not be more appropriate. In an era of standardised hotels it is fascinating to step across the threshold of this building to be transported back to the early 20th century. The (fully functional) 1930's telephone exchange in the cashiers office is worth the visit alone. Our corner room was perfect- huge bed, two... More

This hotel takes you back in time with its well preserved historic building and inner decor. The wooden structure, old fashioned elevator, high ceilings and other details all add charm to your stay. Our room was not facing the sea but the garden view was beautiful. Some of the rooms have been recently renovated as far as I know. Ours... More

If you are looking for old-fashioned charm and a wonderful literary connection, this is the place! The only hotel on the island with a pool, a old fashioned open lift and really good customer service, this is the place. This is where Agatha Christe wrote Murder on the Orient Express.

Really good old tupe hotel on The Princess Islands. Ver good rooms, totally refurbished.Good meal. The only bad thing is that people speak a little of English so it is hard to communicate. The room had a beatifull sea view and was big enough. Good location

Every year I stay 1 or 2 nights in Splendid Palace in Buyukada, Istanbul It's a historical place. The general manager Mr. Omer is a unique personality. He makes the place also very special. And the front office manager is also one of the oldest personnels in the hotel. The staff is also very friendly and highly qualified to help... More

This was one of the hotels which was in plan to stay with my wife due to its convenient location and great building look. But the rooms were a big disappointment for us. The building is very old and historic so the rooms and the furniture. We stayed in the entrance floor because those rooms were renovated and in a... More
