We returned back from Istanbul last Monday, having stayed 7 days. I can support the previous reviews - we have nothing but good things to say about the Hotel Adamar. When we arrived we could not quite believe how good the location was. We were able to walk almost everywhere and the views from the restaurant are simply spectacular. We ate there a few evenings and found the food tasty but not inspirational. That said, it was hard to find places to eat which weren't geared to tourists. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, especially Everim, Halil and Selda (a waitress). Other people have commented on the rooms being small but we thought it was fine - most importantly very clean and comfortable.
If you need a taxi get the hotel staff to book it - they organised a taxi for us to visit the Chora church (highlight of our trip - unmissable!) - it cost just under 20 lira. On the way back the taxi driver would not quote a price - pointed at the meter which started at 2.95 lira (under £2.00) but deposited us in a side street about 10 minutes away from the hotel and moved the meter up to show 49,95 turkish lira (more than double what we had paid going to the church). My husband would not pay the full amount but we still paid more than on the way. This was our only bad experience in a week - everybody else was extremely friendly and helpful.
