The hotel has great location very close to all the major historical sites such as Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Archeological museum.There are a few restaurants and cafes around. Amazing view of the Marmara sea and city from terrace where the breakfast is also served. Breakfast is good as well as service. Clean and comfortable bed, quiet location.

First of all, let me say that the hotel has very convenient location.This was the most important factor when we are choosing a hotel with my friends. All the most important sights of Istanbul are close by est - the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofiа, Bucoleon Palace.The rooms are decorated very tastefully. Bucoleon Palace Hotel attracts with its views. The staff is very friendly and pleasant. The food is lovely, varied. Always visit the restaurant happy, because you can eat and enjoy the gorgeous views of Istanbul. Recommend this hotel to you. I'm going back to Istanbul Bucoleon Palace always happy and with great pleasure. Best wishes!

Bucoleon Palace is a charming boutique hotel located in the old city area Sultanahmet. The rooms are very neat, nicely decorated. The breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace which possibly has one of the best views you could find in this area, facing the Marmara sea and Princes islands. Staff is always there for you trying to help you find your way or make the reservations if you would like to go somewhere such as a restaurant or visit the historic sites.. The reception has provided us with the necessary tools such as converter plugs, charger and etc. which made our journey a lot more easier. And the most important is that they never say no !! They are happy to solve your little problems and we could feel that they do it without any hesitation so it made us feel as we were home.. So the hotel is highly recommended by us and will definitely be in our mind for a possible visit in the future.

If you want to stay near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, Bucoleon Palace is a great choice. It's a little off the main route, and not in the center of all the other hotels, so it's quiet without lacking nearby restaurants. The Blue Mosque is about a 5-minute walk away. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and speaks English (for the most part), and the breakfast is pretty good, too.

Stayed in the Bucoleon Palace Hotel for 4 nights in February. The Hotel was excellant, and the Receptionist's couldnt do enough for us.
Location was brilliant, and a short walking distance from the Tram stop, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia & Basilicia Cistem.
Hotel room & bathroom was clean & tidy. The views from the terrace are amazing.
Highly recommended Hotel, and would stay there again.
