The Orient Express is located within walking distance of nearly every major attraction - Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, the Spice Market and the ferry - and for attractions that are further away, the tramway stop is only a 3 minute walk from the hotel. Unbeatable location. The staff was extremely kind and helpful, but not overbearing, especially when we checked in at 11 pm after a long flight. We chose to be picked up at the airport, which is offered by the hotel, and the driver gave us a short tour around the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, all lit up at night. Our room was not very large but clean and well heated. The buffet breakfast was a little on the plain side, but the in-room electric teapot and assortment of teas more than made up for it. We did not use the swimming pool because we did not have any swimsuits, but the pool looked great. We got a personalized letter from management, with a warm welcome and a few discount coupons. All in all, a great 3-star hotel.
