I read quite a few reviews about how Acra Hotel was in a great location but I was not expecting to be that close to the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia; it truely is in an ideal location. The hotel itself was very nice. Clean, spacious rooms and really nice, helpful staff too. The breakfast was great with a wide range to select from- I especially liked the boreks and selection of pastries. I hope to stay there again in the near future.

The hotel and room here ıs wonderful. The room ıs very clean and well equppıed. The staff are very frıendly and helpful. Especıally Mesut and Fatıh(ı thınk ıts spelled that way) They always have a cheerful smıle on theır face whenever we approach them for help. They are very welcomıng and make us feel safe when we are here. Mesut always provıde us wıth the exact detaıls when asked a questıon. The locatıon ıs nıce as ıts near to the tourıst attractıons. I would most defınately come back to thıs hotel agaın ıf ı ever come back to Istanbul and enjoy the luxury that has been provıded to us. Thank you for the enjoyable stay (:

Room Tip: Nothıng has to be changed as ıts perfect the way ıt ıs!

Great location. Service very good and rooms adequate and clean. Watch out on price though. Information board in reception stated a price triple the one we paid but may be in season prices...

Breakfeast good but a luttle uninspired.

Family trip and this hotel was perfect. Nice comfortable rooms, the location is perfect and the staff are the most helpful and polite of any hotel I have stayed at (I travel frequently to different locations around the world). If you go to Istanbul then this is a great choice.

Room Tip: Family room was ideal with 2 separate bedrooms.

I don't normally write reviews, but feel compelled to post one after my stay at the Acra Hotel. The staff really made my stay one of the best experiences I have ever had. This was my first stay in Istanbul and from check in to leaving, they helped in every way, including advice on things to watch out for.
Breakfast was plentiful and even though I was late on occasion, the staff waited for me. Rooms were comfortable and the location is ideal if you want to explore the main sites in Sultanamet - including Topkapi (3-4 mins walk), Blue Mosque (4-5 mins) and Hagia Sofia (5 mins walk).
Lots of shopping, restaurants and cafes nearby.
Definitely staying there next time I visit Istanbul.

Room Tip: Quite location in central Sultanamet

As a family of parents plus an adult child we needed a room for three---Acra Hotel was able to provide that---plus more. The breakfast was fabulous; I tried to count the number of items one morning and lost track somewhere past 65. Acra Hotel is located within walking distance of most big attractions. But the best thing about Acra Hotel is their friendly and helpful staff. We were lucky to find this hotel.

Very good option to stay in the old part of Istanbul. Large room was beautifully furnished and decorated; in the room was strong Wi-Fi signal. The spacey, marble bathroom was clean and very convenient. Breakfast buffet includes many Turkish specialties, so you can plunge into Turkish vibe right there. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. So don't hesitate to book it!

One minor downside is the sound isolation of the rooms. Ear-plugs will be handy, also not to hear the muezzin’s morning call to the prayer in the nearby Blue Mosque.

If you look for a hotel with a terrace-restaurant, Acra is not the option while Acra serves breakfast in its ground restaurant, where you can touch the history - 2000 yrs old Byzantine remains.
