Dropped into Istanbul on the way through for 2.5 excellent days/nights. This hotel was recommended and I am glad I took the advice. Situated in a perfect location for the key sights of the old city, this is a comfortable and well presented hotel.
The staff are excellent - friendly, interested, proud and committed to making it an enjoyable stay. Dogus and Arben on the front desk and the helpful porters make sure you are immediately equipped with the best information to make your time on the ground well spent.
The breakfast on the Level 4 Terrace overlooking the shimmering Bosphorus is impossible to beat. The attentive staff there make it even better...genuinely warm folks keen to ensure its a great start to the day.
Loved it - If I ever go back to Istanbul it will be to the Magnaura.
PS - the airport transfer service makes life a breeze...well worth it.
