We have just returned home after 3 1/2 weeks touring in Turkey. For the last week of our trip, we called the Empire Palace "home". Our room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel staff was always helpful and available. They were knowledgable about the attractions in the area and gave great directions for getting to them. They also advised us about how much a taxi driver should charge for any given trip, so that we did not get "taken for a ride" while there. The receptonist, Berrin Apil was friendly and especially helpful.
The buffet breakfast buffets in the rooftop restaurant were a great way to start each day. The street where the hotel is located is picturesque and full of small shops.
This hotel is a great place to stay and enjoy the old part of the city.
