We arrived here yesterday intending to stay 2 night. We are a group of 3 couples who have spent the past 2 weeks in turkey. This is our second is visit having first arrived in Istanbul.
I won't mention our first stay, as it was very average, but I will recommend The Magnaura Palace
Everything is great.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
A great location near quality shops and just around the corner from the blue mosque.
Excellent rooms, with a shower that works really well, and all the plumbing is well finished.
I mention that because in most hotels we have previously stayed in over the past 2 weeks, the finish in the rooms has been very poor, and the water pressure has been a dribble.
Excellent value for money.
It's Greta, you can trust me!

Great location. Located about a block from Sultanhamet Square. It is within a 15 - 20 min walk of most other sights in the Sultanhamet area and the Sultanhamet tram station. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is good and has a lot of variety. The roof top terrace seating offers beautiful views of the Bosphorus. This newer hotel is clean, comfortable and everything works. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and plan to stay here on my next visit to the area.

My spouse and I stayed here for 7 nights in September. When planning a vacation in Istanbul, we were overwhelmed with the selection of hotels, especially in the Sultanahmet area. We were so lucky that we chose The Magnaura Palace in the end as it was an incredible place to call home while abroad. As others have commented, the breakfast was plentiful and we looked forward to it each morning! Also, the location is so fantastic! It was so nice to be able to pop into the hotel throughout the day to rest for a couple of hours, use the facilities, etc. and then journey out again. The entire staff was warm and beyond accommodating. They were very helpful in booking excursions and suggesting local restaurants to try. Even the local community is aware of the Magnaura Palace reputation... when we told locals we were staying there, they too heard it was the new hot spot of Sultanahmet. Special call out to Douch (sorry for the spelling) at the front desk... he was so professional, and genuine, and friendly! Will definitely recommend this hotel to all travelling to Istanbul.

Room Tip: We stayed on 1st floor (2nd floor to North America) and found it quiet.
