walk to most of the main tourist spotsPosted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: The sauna and Turkish bath are excellent and seem largely unused.
Cons: Not every room has a view; it's just not possible, but you will want to ensure you know what you're getting.
Location: AyaSofya, Sultan's Mosque, Basilica Cistern, waterfront of the Golden Horn.
I wanted a place in the historic heart and this place fits the bill.

Best Western Premier Acropol - excellent hotelPosted Mar 17, 2014
Pros: Clean, good location, recently renovated, great staff
Cons: not sure
Location: it is in the center of the historical area - great location
We stayed there during March break. Very nice hotel close to all the historical sites. Just 10 minute walk. Also close to the ocean. There is a nice walk there. Nice staff. The food for breakfast was nice. Overall a great experience. You can see the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia from the room. Greatly recommended.

Close to attractionsPosted Mar 13, 2014
The hotel was close to the attractions and the food was amazing. The staff made it special for me and my husband, as it was my 10th wedding anniversary by arranging exclusive Hamaams (Turkish bath) and Suana sessions. The staff also helped me with my excursions and helped me with comparing prices, also suggested I should walk to the attractions and in-take the beauty of Istanbul. They also warned not to take taxis from the roads. Overall a very satisfactory stay. Would recommend :-)

A nice hotel very close to most of the attractionsPosted Mar 1, 2014
Pros: Staff were friendly, informed and helpful. Rooms were nicely decorated, clean and comfortable, especially the beds.
Cons: If you have young children, there are no connecting rooms so expect two separate. Our rooms heard quite a bit of noise from the kitchens as well.
Location: The location was excellent. Most of the major sights such as the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Cistern were 5 minutes walking distance.
Excellent and courteous staff. They will go out of the way to make you comfortable. The rooms were not very big but comfortable and well decorated. The bathrooms were very good. The breakfast is not elaborate but adequate. The room service is very good. Although on a busy street but no noise in the rooms from outside. However, we stayed on level 2 ( American style numbering for levels i.e. 1 is ground floor). Our rooms were 201 & 202 and just near the landing. Unfortunately, there was a lot of noise from lobby after 10 pm and kitchen from 6 am. This was quite annoying.

Very nice hotel close to main attractionsPosted Feb 20, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, facilities
Location: Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar
When we (2 adults and 2 kids - 7 and 10) first arrived at the hotel, we were surprised that it was a lot smaller than could be expected from the pictures. However, this proved an advantage, since staff was extremely helpful, facilities were more than adequate. We even had an accident, while the kids were playing at their room they broke a glass. The manager did not ask for us paying for it, only for the kids to be more careful to avoid getting hurt.

Pricey hotel close to Blue Mosque and Hagia SofiaPosted Feb 17, 2014
Pros: Staff who helped with the luggage and room service.
Cons: A manager who listens to guests and is kind to employees. Make rooms sound proof but is unlikely given already built with cozy rooms.
Location: Two landmarks on either side; the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia pronounced Ayasofia. Free entry to Blue Mosque. A fee for Ayasofia.
Only complaint is the hotel manager who charges you for water delivered to your room when the room rate includes 2 bottles each day but during my stay the water was not replenished on the 2nd day which I requested with room service at dinner time. He said if you drink more than 2 bottles a day then you have to pay extra. Otherwise staff is pleasant and breakfast acceptable. Room is cozy and mine included an upgrade which is same as the junior suite except for a balcony with a view of the street below, not a sea view. Exercise room, sauna, turkish bath, massage in the basement level all with small spaces not used by me which was my personal choice. The area Sultanahmet is for tourists very clean and a little noisy as rooms are not soundproof. Also, given the location to mosques daily prayers or chantings at regula intervals are heard from loudspeakers from 6am to 6pm. I recommend the train to the Asian side to Uskudar.

Fantastic location for cultural visitPosted Feb 7, 2014
Pros: Friendliness of all the staff Breakfast included
Cons: The Turkish bath was not always on despite being told we could use it anytime between 7am and 10pm
Location: Lots of cultural places to see really close. Tram only a short walk away and the water a similar distance the other way.
We received a really friendly welcome and complementary beer while checking in, with a free upgrade and being told about all the things to do and see in the area. The room was really nice, large comfortable bed although we found rotating the duvet by 90 degrees was the most comfortable; there was no overhang otherwise and it was a bit draughty! Everything we needed was there so we had no complaints

Nice hotel and staff in highly touristic placePosted Feb 7, 2014
Pros: Staff, human size of the hotel, the location where you can do everything by foot.
Cons: all is fine!
Location: Lots of restaurants and bars, historical monuments, tramway, grand bazaar.
The hotel is rather small but giving you a sense of feeling at home. It is well located in a high touristic place with restaurants, shops and bars. Everything can be done by foot. The staff is kind and have done their best to allow us an early check-in. We will go there again for our next trip to Istanbul. If you have a chance to get the last floor (5th) you will have a great view on the two major monuments. Try it and you won't regret!
