Just had the most amazing experience in Istanbul fantastic holiday.
Great historical buildings and the best kebabs ever ....., and more exciting foods to try.
What made my stay even better was finding the Best Western Empire Palace Hotel in Istanbul
Best customer service from all the staff ,very friendly , helpful,attentive,and they make u feel at home.
"Great location" Easy access to all the transport you need, to visit the most historical sights in Istanbul eg topkapi palace,hagvia Sofia and the Blue mosque.
After a long day of touring you can unwind and enjoy a traditional Turkish bath on the ground floor of the hotel (amazing)

The hotel is not owned by an American company as I expected; it is locally owned and managed. Staff were really fyriendly . Room did not have a closet nor any drawers to store clothes, only a small armoire to hang clothes . Kept clothes in suitcase and took out as needed. The hair dryer w as very old and barely dried my hair. In fact, it broke and have to be repaired after our first day in the hotel. However, the hotel is centrally located and a convenient walk to all the sites in the old city. Breakfast is also good and included. Does not have a swimming pool.

Room Tip: Ask for corner rooms which have one double bed and a/single one and better natural light. The other rooms are smaller. No king beds in hotel.

This place is great! All the employees I encountered were wonderful. This place saved me when I had to quickly escape a very bad situation in a hostel. The staff were beyond kind when I came into the lobby crying and asking for a room. The air conditioning was also a nice relief in the hot humid summertime!

We enjoyed our 2nd stay at the hotel. It is a in a great position to see the main sights in Sultanahmet. The staff are helpful and pleasant and the breakfast is good. We were disappointed to see that they had made the lounge/bar and outside terrace into a coffee and ice cream shop which meant that we could not relax there with a beer or glass of wine after a busy day sightseeing. We felt this was a retrograde step in providing facilities for visitors. We did not have any problems in Istanbul with security etc even though we were there over the weekend when Taxim Square was cleared of the protesters. People were keen to make us understand that it was safe to visit Istanbul and we found it so.

Room Tip: Some people complained that their room was subject to some building noise but we did not have a problem.
