We stayed in this hotel during early May 2013. We usually stay in Taksim when visiting Istanbul, but this time we decided to change the area and picked the area of Laleli, and the Istanbul Royal hotel. The best part of the hotel is the easy access to the Aksaray tram station, you need only 1 minute walking. The hotel... More

This hotel is a fair price for what you get, it was comfortable with a limited but adequate breakfast. Ask for a room on the upper floors (we stayed on the 7th floor) as the street can be noisy. It is a 2 minutes walk from Aksaray tram station which is very convenient for accessing all the sights in the... More

As an elderly lady travelling alone I was a bit worried. However, the staff at The Royal were wonderful. On my first night my room was near the lift and stairs when I mentioned that I am a light sleeper they immediately moved my luggage to a much quieter room. I can honestly say that this was a Hotel that... More

The Service is Not equal to the facade. Nö, they are indeed Not very welcoming or overly friendly. The breakfast is unexciting, and a decent Cup of coffee is Not to be had in the entire Hotel. The Rooms are a fair size, but simple. Nö Full Length mirror, and Ladies, the hair dryers are useless. Best bring your own.... More

Stayed two nights with our tour group. Very close to Blue Mosque, Bazaar, and good restaurants. Lobby was lovely. Although our room was dated and smelled of smoke it was clean and tidy.. The beds in our room were small twins, but we did find them comfortable. Although our room was facing the street, we were able to sleep despite... More

Decent breakfast, helpful and friendly staff Cons: Most rooms have only twin beds, most rooms have a strong smoke odor, rooms that face the main street are quite noisy. Our second room wasn't as clean as our original room.... More

We were booked to stay in this hotel by our tour company. From the outside the hotel's white marble exterior was appealing. Next to the entrance the hotel's name and the four stars it has been awarded were prominently displayed. In the lobby there was more white marble. The "four star" label ended there. In our room the air conditioning... More

Istanbul Royal Hotel has received 4* from the Turkish Ministry of Tourism. The evaluator must have been blind. I can only give this hotel only 2*. The lobby which was decorated with plastic flowers was a little better them the rooms. The check in process was fast because it had been prearranged by our tour operator. The room was small... More
