have stayed at this hotel for the 3rd time now and every visit has been a very consistent experience, and Ipek Palas is definately my number 1 preference for hotels in istanbul.
Pros: - Close to all the tourist attractions sultan ahmet precinct and grand bazaar
- close to tram and ferry stations
- clean hotel
- friendly staff went out of their way to help with our requests
cons: - really hard to fault this hotel the only negative would be the construction going on next door however it did not affect my stay at all, ear plugs are a must for travelling anywhere i didnt hear a thing!
having read the negative reviews posted previously i found it hard to believe anyone would not like this hotel or have a bad experience however i guess everyone has different expectations when they book a hotel and different standards which they are accustomed to, in my opinion having stayed at a few other hotels in istanbul this hotel is perfectly fine, clean and friendly hotel if you are there to sightsee, if you are looking for a hotel where you want to spend more time in the actual hotel and looking for ammenities then this hotel probably wont meet your requirements.
as said previously this is my number one choice for my stay in istanbul always a pleasure staying there.
thank-you to the friendly staff for making it a great stay each time.
