The hotel is located in a nice part of the city. The staff speaks English and is very helpful even in unexpected situations (I had mixed up the dates due to different time-zones and arrived a day late; they still managed to get me a room and were pretty nice about it). One highlight is the rooftop breakfast buffet overlooking Istanbul. I will definitely stay in Ramada Old City the next time I go to Istanbul. Absolutely worth the price.

The hotel is recent and on a busy street. It is not a 5* hotel, far from it. Although effort was put for decoration, there were several issues. First, the soundproofing is poor and it is very noisy (from the street and nearby mosques). When I stayed in October, they had switched off the air conditioning for the hotel and it was very hot in the room (27 deg C) with the windows closed (to minimize the noise). The rooms are small, the bathrooms are OK but ordinary (no bath), not 5*. The breakfast is very ordinary (not 5*) and ends at 10AM which is early if you are on vacation and having late nights. Location is OK, short taxi ride to the historical centre or by tram (5 minutes walk). Price was good. Internet speed (included) was good.

We have stayed here before and this visit was no different. Top quality, super-clean, expansive rooms. Excellent meals every time. Very fine conference facilities, and very accommodating staff. You pay one price, and everything is included including the bar bill. The only extras are for the shops and photos, if you want them.
The only drawback is that there is wireless internet in public areas only.

A very good deal on this hotel! Rooms are very sparse in terms of decorations but are simple and serve well for the purpose of relaxing! We had a queen bed and single bed room for us and our son, however we would have preferred a bigger room for more space. The breakfast is traditional turkish breakfast with a variety of cold cuts, jams, breads and pastas and rice dishes. Downside was the coffee was just too strong and bitter for our tastes. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Each one was able to answer our questions of how to get somewhere or where to find something. Before our trip we emailed the hotel to arrange our airport transfer and requested the same going back. Emails were promptly replied to and transfers went smoothly. There were a couple short power outages during our 2 week stay, which is common for the area, but very short as to not be a hassle. The great thing about this hotel is that it is right next to many restaurants/cafes and many clothing stores! Not so much souvenirs, but women's, men's and kids clothing and shoes. Historia Mall is also a short walk away from the hotel (with stores like zara, Mango, starbucks and KFC). There is also an ATM across the street, and along Fazi Pasa street many other ATMs that exchange currency as well. The only warning is that the beggars are very aggressive in this area which took some getting used to! I would suggest becoming familiar with the tram to access the tourist spots about a 15 min walk away.

Aksaray is an easy metro ride from Istanbul's Ataturk Airport. The neighborhood borders the Old City, the area formerly called Constantinople and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985. A short tram ride from Aksaray takes visitors past ancient city walls to all the famous sites of Turkey's largest city, including the Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, and the Grand Bazaar.
