“Good Service, Great Location”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This is a small but beautiful hotel located within walking distance of the TopKapi Palace,Hagia Sophia and the Blue mosque. Staff are very helpful esp Mustapha. Only disappointment, a poor choice of breakfast items.

The location was perfect and the personal service by the entire staff was exceptional. Everyone was very helpful and kind. We found Ilhan, the food & beverage manager, going out of his way with great service for us. The body scrub in the Hammam, done by a lovely woman, was a very nice experience.
We would definitely stay here again and again!

If one is looking for a well located hotel in the midst of important landmarks, this is a great hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful and having breakfast in the dining area is like being in one's own house! it was raining for a good part of our stay so being in a cozy place helped lift our spirits, and the nearby places made it convenient for us to move around. We would certainly return.

Room Tip: We had the ground floor which was great for my husband who is visually challenged.

Strongly recommend this hotel !!

My boyfriend and I stayed here in February 2013 on a quick trip to Istanbul. The hotel itself is much smaller than expected, but it was beautiful and incredibly clean! The room was gorgeous....however we had a view of the back of a restaurant kitchen and the wall of another building, even though we requested a room on the upper levels with a view, oh well. Apart from that, the breakfast was OK. It seemed as if they reused the food a lot, and when there were hot options for breakfast they were usually not replenished if they ran out. The spa also had a really bad odor, kind of like a toilet that was backed up for days.

But minus the bad view, spa odor, and OK breakfast, it really was a nice hotel.

This is absolutely, 100%, strategically the best location of any of hotel in all of Istanbul, Sultanahmet (Old City). It's a 2 minute walk to Topkapi Palace and less than a 5 minute walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Basilica Cistern. It's about 10 minutes by cab to Galata Bridge, The Grand Bazaar, The New Mosque, The Süleymaniye Mosque and Rüstem Pasha Mosque. It's very easy to catch ferry to Istanbul's Asia coast from the Galata Bridge.
This hotel was wonderful for families, couples or individuals. Staff was very helpful, but not in an overly intrusive manner. Can Tekin, at the front desk provided exceptional information and service.
The restaurants along Akbiyik Street are great and are steps from hotel.
Thank you Best Western Acropol for an amazing rememberable stay in Istanbul.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in early August 2013 at this boutique hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location, very close to some great places of interest and the Marmara sea. The views of the sea and Aya Sofia from our balcony were amazing. Though the rooms are small but they were clean and the service levels were amazing. The staff really pampered us. The food was good.We would like to specially thank CAN, ILHAN,AHMET,SEVGI AND FATIMA for the way they took care of us. When we are in Istanbul next we will not look beyond this hotel. Anybody who is looking for a small, friendly boutique hotel with the old world charm and amazing staff should consider this hotel.

Room Tip: Chhose a room with a view to the Marmara sea
