“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this lovely hotel from 19-24 Dec and all I can say is that I have no regrets. It is a very clean hotel, rooms kept well and staff ready to help. Breakfast was very very good, quite filling with tea, orange juices, fruit, cheese, salad, eggs, bread etc etc etc. Ms Ozge Gokce, the Guest Relation Manager was very helpful and did everything she could to make our stay an enjoyable one. It is very central to the main attractions, one can easily walk to them. Train station and tram are close too. Indoor pool was a bit cold when you go in but then I guess we got used to it! Still, I would recommend this hotel anytime!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room on the 6th floor so I guess it was less noisier.

Beautiful hotel, comfortable bed, excellent and varied breakfast with fantastic concept of self-service and comfortable chairs (a pity that they have only one type of tea), staff is friendly and ready to help. I was particularly impressed with Miss Ozge she was approaching guests and interested in what they need and helps selflessly in everyt way and gives advice to guests to feel comfortable and desirable at the hotel. Hotel Lobby is a bit dark t(lack of light) The reception was polite and helpfull.Rooms are small but comfortable. View from the room is not impressive because looking at the construction site but we do not care..For price I paid I am very pleased with the hotel. Be aware of the mini bar. Reception tried to charge me two water from mini bar even i not use nothing from mini bar. that wos so disapointig and I must to write a statement that i did not use the mini bar. The receptionis was unkind and not apologized to us even not a tell us good-bye before leaving, as It was spoiled a perfect impression of the hotel a due to miss Ozge 8she is the best and every hotels must have one person for guest relationship like her )and everything else I give a positive opinion with 5 star.

The hotel is in excellent position.
Very friendly staff in the restaurant. Special thanks to Miss Ozge. Pay attention to the reception and mini-bar, we did not use but they wanted us to cheat (one receptionist) others were ok.
Breakfast is great. The rooms are not very big, but for us it was not a problem.
I recommend Orka Royal Hotel!

Room Tip: We stayed at room 417 small but quiet room.

Hotel Orka Royal is the best hotel my friend and I have been so far! We recommend you to choose Orka Royal if you want to visit Istanbul.

Area:
The hotel is located in a perfect area to visit Istanbul. Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, egyptian bazaar, great bazaar, Sultanahmet mosque, new mosque and the harbour are easy to reach within 5 walking minutes. The tram stop is nearby (200 meters) for those who choose to travel by train.
Although the hotel is close to almost all of the famous sights, it is located in a silent street. We never heard any cars, party people or any other kind of noise at night. The area is sourrounded by really nice small shops.

Hotel:
The hotel is very beautiful, very clean and very neat. We were impressed by the classy furniture and the warm welcoming atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and obliging. They immediatelly helped us with our luggage and any concern we had. We have never been served so well by such an obliging staff in any other hotel we have been so far. We can recommend you to go to the roof top of the hotel to enjoy the phenomenal view of istanbul: Bosporus and Bosporus bridge, Hagia sophia, sultanahmet mosque and the Topkapi Palace etc. You will have the perfct view!!! They also have a sauna, a fitness room, a terrace etc., which we never used.

Breakfast:
:-) The breakfast was amazing! At the buffet they offered us a great variety of delicious trukish and continental food. Warm and cold! We found cheese, eggs, sausages, spinace, olives, fruits, bread, soup, pastry, mushrooms, coffee, tea, juices, water, milk etc.

Rooms:
The room was silent, big, classy furnitured and very clean. We had a normal shower and a "rain forest shower", which was pretty cool. Wireless internet was free and worked perfectly in the room and in all the other areas of the hotel.

The bar:
The hotel has a very stylish and very welcoming bar, which offered us great drinks and meals. We had dinner there every evening. The food and drinks were very delicious and perfectly prepared! They also have a TV station to watch soccer. The staff was the coolest and most friendliest staff we have ever met! They offered us great drinks and helped us with every wish! Most of all Ersin and Ali have been the friendliest and most obliging waiters we have ever me so far.

If we will visit Istanbul again, we will definately choose the same hotel!!!
