My husband and I stayed at the Armada hotel in March of 2010. The hotel was beautiful. There is even a fountain with turtles in the lobby. Rooms were excellent. We had an inner room and it was quiet. The breakfast buffet in the hotel restaurant located on the roof was amazing. So much food to choose from and all delicious. On one side of the roof you have a beautiful view of the Blue Mosque and Haga Sofia. On the other side is a wonderful view of boats on the Bosphorus.
Staff was very helpful with transportation to the airport. Cheaper than a regular taxi.
The only drawback was the area. The hotel is superb but some nearby buildings are in very bad shape. A bit confusing walk to get places but if you have a map or ask the staff you should have no problem. About a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest train station.
