“Great room and location”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I stayed at house attached to hotel . It was 5 stories from basement to rooftop with view of Bosphorus and Mosques , great value at 200 Euros including excellent daily buffet breakfast . Only 10 minute walk to main square past good restaurants. Service excellent although I did have to go to travel agent nearby for one tour to Princes Island.

A very nice hotel located in the old city in Istanbul. The breakfasts were great and good service. The view was very nice from the restaurant. The bedroom was regularly cleaned. Walking distance to many historical sites. Many restaurants were found nearby. Friendly staff at the reception. The hospitality desk was excellent, staffed by Baris.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel with a view on the sea. The room was nice and comfortable.
The staff is very helpful. The breakfast on the rooftop is fantastic with a view on Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and a choice of delicious pastries, Turkish delights, fruit, cereals, eggs.. Just for the pleasure to squeeze my own fresh orange juice with this traditional Turkish orange squeezer, I would like to come back.

only stayed one night following a cruise, great location superb terrace restaurant looking out on Bosphorous and Blue Mosque. Only crticism is that we were not advised to book hotel restaurant for dinner and hence missed out, although a lot of the local restaurants offered similar views

This is a very nice hotel and a great location. You can walk to the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and if you like to walk to almost all the major sites to see while in Istanbul. The Armada rooms are very nice and very comfortable. The breakfast, which is included, it simply amazing with lots of fruit, cereals, eggs and frittatas, you can also squeeze your own grapefruit and orange juice fresh. I would stay here again.

We really liked this hotel. The location was great we could walk to main attractions in 10 minutes. The rooms are smallish but that should be expected. Free wi-fi in rooms. The staff and service were very good. We really enjoyed the roof top restaurant. Ate dinner there two nights and would highly recommend it. Great views of the water and mosques. Excellent breakfast. The fresh squeezed orange juice was a nice touch.
