“Adora is Even Better the Second Tine Around”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

Why try another hotel, I ask myself when I get everything I need at the Adora. Great Staff, knowledgeable, professional, generous and warm. A nice cozy room with a comfortable bed, t.v. with a zillion stations, lots of heat, and a shower that has nice hot water! I come back to the Adora because I feel welcomed, and appreciated as a person. Best of all is to have people remember your name and bring a lovely cup of Turkish tea right after you check-in!...

The hotel has a very complete breakfast with cereals, fresh fruit, cheese, salads, olives, eggs, and meats.. Lots of bread and jams. Of course Turkish tea, coffee, juices etc. Enough to satisfy everyone.

Close to the tram and all the major tourist sights and more. Right in the middle of everything! If you have any questions, the staff are ready to offer advice and suggestions. You cannot go wrong at the Adora. Besides their housekeeping and behind the scenes staff keep the rooms in great shape with lots of towels,soaps, shampoos. Thanks again everyone. Cannot wait to come back again!

Room Tip: In the summer you might want to have a higher floor if noise from the street is a problem for your s...

The things i loved,
Cost VS value is AWESOME.

Hotel staff was great, starting by readiness at the Airport then a worm welcome at hotel then a quick check in the rooms. Normally this process takes 3 hours , we were 7 ppl family occupying 3 rooms & only made it in less than 2 Hr.

Breakfast buffet was rich and full of good items. we loved the variety and quality of the food.

Rooms are clean,bathroom are good with no mold of things need fix.

Location is great , very Near By Gulhan station which was our lunch pad to many places like kabatch & Taksim & Grand bazaar. also its a 10 min walking distance form the Great spice bazaar and Aminono station.

Mr.Burhan in the front office was polite, more than helpful & had a great problem solving skills.
he greeted us in worm words when we were checking in and gave us a nice gift while checking out.

The things that i would like to change,
Our first room was a bet small, but Mr.Burhan gladly switched our room to a bigger one.

other than that the hotel was very convenient.

Room Tip: Higher floors has less noise from metro. Best rooms are the ones which end with **2 (202,302,402...

Was so pleasantly surprised with this hotel...right in the heart of tourist area, clean, one block from tram stop, easy 45min.tram/train ride to airport, right off a main street with many, many stores and restaurants. Breakfast plentiful....yogurt, tomatoes, olives, cereals, juice, cold cut type meats, coffee, tea, breads, jams, etc., good wi fi in room with computer in lobby, about 4 floors with elevator. Beds kind of hard, and rooms small, but I needed to rate the Adora with a 5 star due to the hotel manager, Burhan, and his fantastic staff.....always ready to assist with any need, always pleasant, courteous, and ready with suggestions......always with a smile. Would definitely reccommend. And thank you Burhan and staff for a wonderful week in beautiful Turkey...you made it memorable!!!! John, New Jersey

We stayed a weekend at Adora hotel first time in Istanbul. Close to public transportation (tram) right around the corner which takes you through the old parts of the European side. Even when not taking the tram you can follow the tracks to the big tourist attractions here. Walking distance. The hotel clerk was very service minded and gave suggestions on things to do with the limited time we had during the stay. The rooms were quite ok, the breakfast soso. But the overall impression from the welcome drink to the gift of sweets when leaving. Really good

The hotel is located in Gulhane a stop away from Sultanehmat ... The main tourist spot... It takes a minute or even less to walk up to the closest tram stop and may be 20 minutes to walk upto the tourist spots ... The hotel is surely small... The furnishings are humble yet clean ... Good heating system.... A more than helpful, & exceptionally friendly staff... Breakfast is not elaborate but really fresh ... All in all I ll recommend it for a stay
