Although the pedestrian access was being repaved when we arrived, our welcome was faultless, and our corner suite on the first floor had a great view to the sea. Brilliant shower and good bathroom fittings that worked. There was very little traffic noise so we were delighted to return to a haven of calm after our hectic days of touring. Easy WIFI access was also a bonus. We were a little disappointed that the roof-top cafe wasn't open, as breakfast out there was one of the website attractions, but the owner is hands on, and doing his best to get things finished. Whilst the mini-fridge in the room wasn't coping, there was always cold water available in the breakfast area downstairs. We enjoyed the breakfasts, loved the seasonal fruit, cheeses, fresh breads and excellent filter coffee. I would happily recommend the Magnaura Palace to travellers to Istanbul.
