My husband and I had the most wonderful vacation in Istanbul, thanks to the very friendly and hospitable staff at the Magnaura Palace Hotel.
We felt completely at home right from the moment we stepped into the hotel - Arben and Dogush and Ilyas were so warm and welcoming at the front desk, they offered us some yummy apple tea on arrival and talked to us at length regarding sightseeing, tours,restaurants,etc.We booked tours suggested by them and were very happy with their suggestions. The hotel is very centrally located in the heart of Sultanahmet, and a lot of major tourist attractions (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern) as well as some amazing restaurants are well within walking distance. The daily breakfast on the terrace was a great way to start the day, thanks to the attentive Ayden and Kubra, who made sure that we were well taken care of! The deluxe room is well furnished, clean, cozy and was very comfortable. Thanks to Mohammed, who also helped us carry our bags,provided room service and to the cleaning lady who did a great job!
The tram stop is very close by and if you need a cab, all you have to do is ask the hotel for one and it arrives in less than 5 minutes!
Thanks to Mehmet for giving us advice on restaurants, etc and taking the time to chat and laugh with us.
We will certainly be back with our kids and will also recommend this charming and friendly hotel to all our friends!
