This hotel is perfectly located for a visit to the old part of Istanbul.It has a ROOFTOP BAR/restaurant with wonderful views of the HAGIA SOPHIA & THE BLUE MOSQUE.It is clean,comfortable and walking distance from virtually everything you want to see and do in the old city. It has a superb reception staff..WE were particularly impressed with Halil Vural who was incredibly helpful with every phase of our visit.He even assisted us with a problem on our e mail.Thank you again Halil Sincerely yours.Dennis & Nancy Fulton

This has been the second time we have stayed at the Adamar Hotel and like the first time we were not disappointed. The staff had a driver meet us at the airport and were extremely friendly and helpful during our stay. The open air restaurant located on the top floor was an exceptional experience. Delicious steaks, wine with a gorgeous panoramic view of the city and Mosques. I would recommend this hotel highly and we look forward to being able to stay there again the next time we visit Istanbul. I rate the hotel and staff 5 stars, the rating is well deserved.

Room Tip: Walking distance to Grand Bizaar, Spice Market and Mosques. Exceptional view of the city at night. V...

We usually stay at first class, well rated, central places. This is all three. The level of proactive service was absolutely top drawer and very well informed/connected. The room was nice and big. The location was absolutely next to all the places you will want to go. We had a nice big room, and were greeted with slippers and robes. Alas, the robes were so tiny they didn't wrap! And they were threadbare. This hotel was Turkey. It wasn't the US or other countries--which made it delightful. I guess in Turkey, they don't think of hooks in the room or bathroom anywhere. They also put a platform of plastic laminated wood flooring with metal trim around the bed, screws showing. However, these small details do not compare to being able to get a private guide within an hour on a whim, or being told, as soon as we arrived about the difference between Turks and Americans, (by a Turk) which proved very helpful. The dining room is on top of the building in such a way that the whole city can be seen, one of the few easy places to go to see it. It is really like the staff Want to please you, look for ways to please, and follow through. I left 2 nighties and 2 favorite scarves in a drawer, and was sick about it. The hotel management took care of it right away and sent it back, their cost. Stuff like that counts for a lot in my book, as did their attitude and information. It is not modern/chic, it is very ecclectic and authentic. As far as being in the right place, with all the amenities, and the nicest people possible, it has it all.

Room Tip: We had a roomy corner room, with good noise barrier windows.

Hotel Adamar is located in the very center of ancient Istanbul. Five minutes to the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia and just a stone's throw from lots of good restaurants, bars and a super Hamam. The roof top terrace is breathtaking. Don't miss out on a sundown-drink up there. We had problems with our reservation because the booking-portal we had booked with went bankrupt, but Halil Vural from the reception helped us out. He always replied immediately to our emails upfront and found a great solution for our problem. He, Evrim and all the other guys at the reception or in the service just supported us with everything. They were super professional and provided us in every situation with the best help we could get. It s rare you feel so welcome in a Hotel. One last comment: Try to avoid the second floor: It s all purple and you feel like in a barbie wonderland :-)

This is a wonderful little hotel in the heart of the Old City and within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market. The staff is extremely helpful and responsive. The view from the rooftop restaurant is PERFECT (and the steak was amazing :)).

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner room which had great views.

While visiting Istanbul this summer, we stayed at the Adamar Hotel, which had been recommended to us by friends. The hotel is ideally located in the old city of Istanbul, within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, and the Spice Market. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are modern, spotless and of adequate size, but the best feature is the rooftop restaurant and bar. We ate dinner there three out of the 4 nights we were in Istanbul, and every meal was excellent. I would not hesitate to return to this lovely place!

The Adamar has a great location the old city. Several classic sites such as Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cistern (not to be missed) are within easy walking distance, let alone The Grand Bazaar and the Gelata Bridge area.The view from the hotel's terrace is spectacular whether you are there for dinner or just for a predinner drink. The staff couldn't be more helpful and attended to all our needs with speed and courtesy.The breakfast was good, with ample choice whether it be cooked, continental or Turkish. Would definitely return to the Adamar and will recommend to anyone going to Istanbul.
