We stayed at the Armada Hotel for four nights upon our arrival in Turkey. The hotel is quite easy to get to from the airport (about 45 lira by taxi), and located very close to all of the Sultanahmet tourist sites. As others have mentioned, the breakfast is very good, and the rooftop location has some astounding views. Service was reasonable (and better than I expected from the other reviews). The room was not large, but comfortable. Air conditioning did not work very well, so I'm happy that the weather was not too hot while we were there. We stayed on the sea view side of the hotel, and on Saturday there is a disco nearby (or other source of loud music) that makes it difficult to sleep before 1 am. Overall, a pretty good place to stay and great location for the main tourist sites.
