I just stayed at the Best Western Acropol Suites & Spa in Istanbul, Turkey for five nights in April. This is a wonderful hotel and I highly recommend it. I contacted the hotel via email prior to my arrival and they were able to arrange reliable affordable transportation to and from the airport. After such a long flight, it was nice to know I had my ride directly to the hotel and I didn't have to haggle about the price. When I arrived at the hotel, I was pleasantly surprised. I did have high expectations because of the other great reviews here and I wasn't disappointed.
The staff was extremely friendly, the room was beautiful and very comfortable and we were upgraded to a room with a balcony and views of Hagia Sophia and The Blue Mosque without even asking. The restaurant in the hotel was also excellent and the breakfast that was included in our room rate was diverse and delicious. We were within walking distance of all the great sights and we were very close to the tram if we wanted to get farther away. I highly recommend this hotel if you want to stay in the Old Town part of Istanbul.
The only, not negative, but warning I would give is to ask for a room on a higher floor. The street the hotel is on is busy and full of tourists and the party in Istanbul goes late into the night. We were usually ready to go to bed between 11pm and midnight and the even on the fourth floor, we could hear the music and partying on the street. It wasn't a huge problem but I suspect you would hear it more on the lower floors.
Bottom line, this is a great hotel in a great location for a reasonable price with a great staff so don't hesitate to book your stay here at the doorstep of this beautiful city!
