Reviewed 4 July 2012

Stayed five nights and couldn't have been happier. Nicely furnished/decorated (junior suite) room with the usual amenities. Our adult daughter was with us so things got a little tight but it's a historic building, in a central location, so we expected that. Very nice Turkish breakfast with an anxious-to-help staff. Off-season is a great time to visit amazing Istanbul. We will definitely return to the Acropol if the opportunity arises.

We stayed at Acropol for 3 nights for our quick city tour of istanbul. Airport to hotel is about 25mins drive and costs around 40 TL. The location of hotel is good and our standard room was nice we were on the 4th floor.

Breakfast was good and had a choice of asking for a fried egg too. there was a choice of breads/pastries/eggs/veg and spreads

The location is great its about a 10min walk up hill to the mosques and the palace. you can see and hear the mosques at each prayer. Tram is also near the mosques Sultan Ahmet station and quite easy to get to other locations. We did the Bosphorus morning tour recommended by hotel at 45 euros each was an ok day and got to see the sites from the sea.

The only problem we had was with the wifi it didn't seem to want to work on both iPhone or iPads at same time. The wifi strength was not its best but did the job for our stay.

Room Tip: 402 was a good front facing room and had a good street view

Dear guest, First of all, thank you for writing your kind review and sharing your thoughts about our hotel, We are glad to see that you had a great time in the city and enjoyed your stay.
We have noticed that the Iphone and I pads needs to log in and log out again when you moved them as we have many access points at the hotel. So, The wi-fi works properly.

It might be late to put this review as we stayed in this hotel in the last ten days of April ... But late better than never.
The hotel location in Sultanahmet is just great ... Our stay was close to all the old city attractions. We had the top floor rooms& it had a spectacular view on both Marmara Sea& Aya Sophia. It is just a short distance walk from all the nice restaurants and coffee shops bazars in down town.
The rooms were spotless ... They used very nice/good quality soaps, shampoos, etc. in the bathrooms.
Staff couldn't be better ... As soon as we stepped in Istanbul we had a very friendly driver with a spacious car who was waiting for us in the airport.
When we arrived in the hotel they gave us a very warm welcome. I had my nieces with me a 9& a 5 years old ... Both were treated as princesses.
They are very very kind to old people they helped my mom who has a knee problem in and out of cars, to go downstairs, etc.
The hotel restaurant is just great for lunches and dinners ... Even if you go for the many options around in Sultanahment you have to give it a try ... You won't regret it.
They were very helpful giving us information, advise us about where to go, book trips& transportation for us.
It was a very pleasant week& when I am in Istanbul I would be definitely going back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor overviewing Marmara Sea are just amazing

We had originally booked a big chain hotel in the new part of the city.We changed at the last minute to the Acropol Suites and definitely made the right decision.The location of the hotel is excellent, within walking distance to all the major attractions.Our room was a junior suite which was spacious, quiet, clean, and luxuriously appointed.The room had a fantastic view of Hagia Sophia and the bed was also very comfortable.The restaurant is excellent, we ate 4 out of 5 dinners at the hotel. Most importantly, I cannot say enough about the friendly professional staff at the hotel and restaurant. They truly made our first impression of Istanbul a very positive experience.

It took us a month searching on Trip Advisor to find a hotel in Istanbul that had a great location; room larger than a closet; family friendly, as we have an 8-year old; and have a restaurant and room service. The Acropol Suites & Spa fit the bill. The hotel is situated on a beautiful street lined with restaurants, shops, and markets. The major sights, the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and The Blue Mosque, are only a five-minute walk from the hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Mr. Ilhan took such good care of us tending to all of our needs. He took our son under his wing and made him feel at home. Our room was very spacious, modern, and comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was great, and the bathtubs had water jets. The soundproofing in the room was excellent, as we never heard the noise from the street nor the daily calls to prayer. Our room did experience some air-conditioning trouble, however, and the hotel manager moved us into an upgraded room the next day. He even carried all of our belongs to the new room. The restaurant in the hotel was very elegant and intimate. The evening meals were delicious, and the buffet breakfasts were very satisfying. There were many choices of breads, fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats, olives, cheeses, cakes, fruit juices, and sweets. Special recognition goes out to Mr. Ilhan who many times personally catered to our needs, including preparing a special take-out breakfast meal for us when we had to leave before the restaurant was open. Thanks to all that made our trip to Istanbul memorable.

Room Tip: Corner suite on right side of the building (facing the street) was very quiet.
