We stayed one night in this hotel. Laptop is available to use in the reception. Rooms were small but complete with everything you need including aircon. Breakfast was good and could be eaten on a roof terrace (inside and out seating available). Helpful staff. Best bit though was probably location - you do a lot of walking in Istanbul so this is a great plus! 3 minute walk to Blue mosque which is 5 mins from Aya Sophia and a further few minutes to Topaki Palace.

Room Tip: Although we had a road side ground floor room we had a great sleep. I guess the higher up you are th...

The Ada Hotel is run by a helpful and friendly family, which makes staying there feel like you have a home in Istanbul. The rooftop terrace, where the bountiful breakfast buffet is served, has a phenomenal view; the mosque across the street is a tranquil jewel. The location is near public transportation and the major sights in Sultanahmet.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are a bit quieter (the morning call to prayer from the nearby mosque is fainter...

We have stayed during the weekend time and we really enjoyed our stay. The ocean view from our room was unforgettable. The breakfast was at the terrace and lots of delicious food options. The location of the hotel was perfect I must say, in a quite street but very close to historical places. The staff were very helpful. We will definitely recommend Ada Hotel.

The Ada Hotel is located within easy walking distance of the central tourist area but well away from the crowds. It is owned and run by a family whose members give their guests a warm welcome and attentive service, without intruding. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable, while the breakfast area on the top floor opens onto a terrace, which commands a stunning view past a derelict pillar to the shore and a harbour full of ships.

Its like a never seen hotel, I would rate it more as a house than hotel for the warmth and cooperation.
Whatever is written by everyone else is absolutely correct. I want to mention one thing, First floor with partial sea view is actually ground floor. On hotel Lift its mentioned as 1 i.e ground floor so hotel also mentions it as first floor and i chose that assuming it to be fist floor.
Breakfast is different and has good variety but monotonous, for a long stay it may be a problem but as we stayed for 3 days i really liked it. The owner's daughter was very very helping. Rooms were very clean and has everything which you can expect from any high end hotel. Rooms were small as they are in this area. Views from terrace were great, we used to have rooftop evenings enjoying our drinks and view, which is unbeatable. Location of the hotel is excellent, just 2 minutes walkaway from all major attractions.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms.

Our stay in Istanbul couln't have been better. One of the reasons was the Hotel Ada and the wonderful team working there, a descrete, very helpful and adorable family that makes you feel part of it. Whatever you need, they will make it happen, the room was spotlessly clean, the jaccuzi great fun, the view unforgetable, the breakfast buffet couldn't have been better, there is something for absolutely all tastes, and the terrasse is stunning. Airport shuttle, tipps and advices about anything you need to know about the city, laundry, post and telephone services (interational calls are free!) were excellent and extremely reliable.
Me coming from Gaza and my mother coming from Switzerand, it was the perfect holidays for mom and daughter in the perfect place that offered absolutely everything we needed. It was my second time in Ada Hotel, and for sure not the last one!

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors on the Marmara side have a stunning view.

This charming boutique hotel is run by a retired chemistry professor and his wife. The hotel was built in traditional style with modern facilities in 2006 and is in the old city near the important sites including the Blue Mosque and The Church of Holy wisdom.
The breakfast terrace overlooks an ancient Classical Pillar a mosque and a clear view of the sea of Marmara. The view is rivalled only by the excellent breakfast which is laid on each morning which includes cooked items such as eggs etc.
We were picked up at the airport by the hotel after arriving late in the evening. Next morning after a substantial breakfast a five minute walk took us into the square where the hippodrome used to be. To say we were overwhelmed by Istanbul would not be an exaggeration. The hotel itself played its part by being accessible, good value, spotlessly clean, and comfortable.
I will not be churlish by mentioning minor niggles. They were too insignificant to mention.
How did the owner Dr Dogan help? By supplying antiseptic for a minor injury when all the drug stores were closed and immediately summoning a private car to rush us to the airport when we discovered that we had made an error as to departure times and paying half the fare as we had run out of Euros.
Thank you Dr. Dogan Sumengen once again
