In few words, Acropol Premier Hotel is the best of the best. I have stayed in many brands of hotels including Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton, which are great and nice but lack the personalized service that the Acropol Suites Hotels gives. I was treated as royalty and every time was welcome with a big smile. Accommodations are perfect and with luxury. The mattress was comfortable, each room had a minibar with a refrigerator with space to put my own drinks and food, and the bathroom had a Jacuzzi.
The location was the best in all Istanbul since I did my research before booking. It is situated in the heart of historical Istanbul, in the center of Sultanahmet, walking distance to the major historical and touristic sites. Furthermore, it is walking distance to a metro stop. The Acropol has a great WI FI internet connection) as well as health club, fitness center, Turkish Hamam , steam room, and sauna. The Turkish bath is great and relaxing.My wife and I stated at this wonderful hotel for seven nights, but time just went by quickly, that we could have stayed forever. Every day we had breakfast and the hotel and never got tired of the food since they give so much variety. The assortment of teas and coffee were great and the Buffett was endless, with Turkish and international dishes. Everything was delicious and my taste buds had an out of this world experience. I really enjoyed the honeycomb, Turkish yogurt, and the olives. After breakfast, we were so satisfy that we even didn’t have lunch and waited for a nice dinner.
The hotel is on a street full of restaurants, shops, café and bars. However, the hotel has a wonderful restaurant. All the staff was magnificent and they enjoyed their work. The hotel manager Mr. Ozhan Ozlu does a great job and is in top of every detail. The front desk staff is willing to make reservations to any place and to give your information and tips. If you want to go out for to a delightful lounge and restaurant go to Reina, which is one of the best in Europe. Make sure to tell the staff to make reservations, because even though it may be empty, the bouncer at the front door will ask you if you have reservation in order to give prestige to the place. The music is great.
I really felt at the Acropol like a VIP. The night we were going to Reina, it was a holiday; Republic day and they were celebrating 90 years. The Taxi could not come to pick us because everyone was celebrating and the traffic was awful. One guy at the front desk had finished his shift and told us he would take us the taxi stop, so we walked to the metro, offered to pay our ticket and once we got out, he made sure we had a taxi and spoke to the drive to ensure a fair treatment. He speaks six languages so I told he could go to a beach town to work at a resort and his answer was “at a big hotel one can’t give good service because there are so many rooms and guests”. Imagine how much, he loves his job.
Istanbul is an exotic city and the Turkish people are friendly and warm. One of the best trips of my life, so my wife and I hope to return and stay at the Acropol Suites Hotel.
