It is the first time I have stayed in this hotel. I have been in others and really like it. It is very well located, away from traffic and in the center of Sultanahmet. The biosecurity measures are well taken and the rooms and service was impeccable. The food is good but I would have preferred that the beverages are included in the price of the breakfast (that is included in the price for the room). As I have to travel often to Istanbul, I believe that will be the place I will stay for the coming years.

Difficult for hotels to manage guest safety in these Covid pandemic times but everywhere was spotlessly clean, temperature taken every time you entered the hotel and hand sanitizing stations located on each floor, front door and on the terrace, I feel that the hotel did everything possible to keep both guests and staff safe. My second visit to the Armada, a characterful hotel in the perfect location within walking-distance of all the sites of Sultanahmet and with a good choice of restaurants within 10 minutes walk. The rooms are not very big but well furnished and with sufficient wardrobe space, absolutely fine for such a busy sightseeing holiday. Daily maid service and change of sanitized bedding and towels, bathrooms with a rain shower and good lighting. Good WiFi, my only complaint, the dreaded wall-attached hair dryer which was totally useless. Great view of the Bosphorus and sea from the breakfast terrace on the roof, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are just behind the hotel. In these difficult Covid times we enjoyed the breakfast which was already plated and sealed but missed the wonderful buffet. Staff did their very best, were friendly and efficient throughout the hotel, our special thanks to the reception staff for help with the HES code. We very much enjoyed our stay here, we would definitely stay here again as we found it a great base for our wanderings.

Armada is located within walking distance of all the major sites. The hotel has a fabulous restaurant which overlooks the Bosphorus and provides a huge selection at breakfast. The rooms are spotless - bathroom had a great shower. Staff are friendly and helpful - really can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

This was my 4th stay at the Armada - I love the rooms (great shower) and the service is excellent. It is so well located for visiting sites or catching the tram across the Bosphorus. Thank you for another great stay in a wonderful city.

Room Tip: All seem great - plus it was good to have an open window rather than aircon as a choice.
