“Excellent Service, perfect Location! Couldn't have asked for more.....”
Reviewed April 6, 2010

From arrival we were treated beyond our expectations. we had a lovely room and the tea and cakes on arrival were very much welcomed!
On our first night we didn't have any plans, the hotel recommended a couple of restaurants which were excellent (i would recommend going to Antique Turquoise and choosing the rock fish...Yum!)
the room was modern and clean and is in the middle of the old town, within a 5 minute walk to all the tourist attractions (Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque etc etc)....
the hotel were happy to book our tours and hamams which made things so easy for us...
All in all an excellent experience i would definately return.... :)

Just home fro IStanbul 13 hours ago. Acra is a new nice hotel ( only 10 months old in March 2010). The location is perfect close to all sights in Old City and the tram is quit close too. It is quit in the night. Our rooms were big, good beds, good bathrooms. But what makes this hotel is the staff. Seldom you meet people at the front desk with such a passion for what they are doing. The are proactively helpful, they offer you options or nicely suggest better choices if you are checking with them own thought.s/plans They are also funny and positive. We laughed a lot with them. I big extra plus to Hasan and Lale. And Mesut.
The terrace is not built yet. That is the only minus. But the great breakfast buffet among the ruins of an old castle is nice. And the terrace will come. The lift already goes up to that floor ( we checked).
This city is really nice in March/April and September /October. Good weather then and not too many tourist.

Dear friends,
This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I have been abroad almost 10 times before. Do not search any further. You found the BEST!!!
I can not find words to describe what me and my husband experienced in this hotel. The staff all of the guys and especially the lady in the reception made us feel at home. Very friendly and warm, I almost feel them as my friends. The best staff ever. The hotel is in a very good location next to the Blue Mosque, around a 5 min. walk. The neighborhood is very nice also, very colourfull, and peacefull.
Rooms are big enough, very clean, very elegant, with an excellent big bed and fine pillows, and very nice decorated. Bathroom is also big and very nice. The hotel is new and so it looks like it.
Breakfast has a lot of variety. It covers all tastes. Breakfast room is very big and ellegant. The personnel also in the breakfast room, so kind and friendly.
In our trip happened both of us to be ill and we never feld bad and miserable thanks to this wonderfull staff. They provided us with everything we needed. (Thank you guys for all - You are simply the BEST)...
Best quality and price hotel that you will ever experience. Its not big words it is simply the truth.
There are a lot of good restaurants nearby, but I think that in Beyoglou they are more and maybe better.
Turquoise restaurant nearby the hotel is nice but not the best.
Istanbull is a nice city, but very much crowded. It gets dizzy to walk around sometimes and in some very crowded places. Agia Sophia is a must, Top Capi, Bosporous cruise and all the rest, but in my opinion Yerebatan Sarayi (Vasilikes kinsternes) is a MUST see.
Hope I helped a little in search of a good hotel.
"Dear friends from Acra hotel many thanks and hope to see you again".
Keep up this excellent job..
With love Katerina and Vagelis from Athens....

We were very happy with the room, staff and location. It's near the tram and steps to all the major sites in old Istanbul. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The beds were comfortable, the marble bath was spacious and modern. The breakfast was ample although we would have liked more fresh fruit. The dining room was charming and had the remains of ancient palace walls. Tea and cake was served in the late afternoon. The free wireless worked well.

We stayed at Acra Hotel in the last january (2010), during 5 nights. It was perfect, since our reception at the airport, where the was someone waiting us, until our departure!
The Acra´s staff was very attentive. It called us attention the warm reception at the hotel, when they provided us a very confortable room (corner suite 404), and a lot of options to dinner in the neighbourhoods, taxi etc.
The accomodations are very spacious, clean, confortable (in terms of temperature and noise as well), and the furniture is classical e quite sofisticated.
Do not hesitate to choose this hotel in your next trip to Istanbul.

If you are looking for a good & clean hotel in "Sultan Ahmet" I can recomment the Acra hotel! I have stayed here for 2 nights. I have to say that the Management & Reception staff were very helpful and offering help and advice. Mister Mesut from the reception helped me with searching a hotel in Bursa(Uludag).
The breakfast in the hotel was good to eat. In short to say it is a nice and comfortable hotel to stay if you are alone or with your family or friends!
Hopefully see you next year!
