Editorial review:

Armada Istanbul Old City Hotel shouts comfort, with fresh flowers and a pond of tortoises to greet its visitors. Rooms are well appointed. The better rooms come with a view of the sea. Even though the location is not ideal, it would take ten minutes to walk to Sultanahmet. The hotel’s best asset is the Teras Restaurant which has a great view and is pleasant. Check before you book because room rates vary a great deal.

                      It has wonderful double views of the Sea of Marmara on one side and the Blue Mosque on the other, with Aya Sophia rather further away, but still a spectacle from the roof terrace. It's within 300 yards of Cankurtaran train station on the domestic line (every 20 mins to Sirkeci mainline station on the Golden Horn to access Bosphorus cruises and the modern tram through Sultanahmet). The hotel is around 10 mins walk (uphill) to the principal sights of Topaki Place, Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque and underground catacombs. It has an outstanding breakfast buffet in a really impressive rooftop restaurant in which we also dined very well indeed. Eating outside on the rooftop patio in the summer, with those views, must be a really memorable experience

                      The external views of the hotel itself are bland and some would find the interior decor too understated. Our bathroom was small (but I did notice that some rooms had upgraded bathroms where glass walls helped to expand the feeling of space). Whilst we heard the call to prayer early each morning, this looks to be completely unavoidable in Istanbul and we certainly saw many, many hotels where the associated noise level would have been far more of a problem to light sleepers than at the Armada.

                      Fabulous terrace, and great breakfast. Very conveniently located, less than 5 minute walk from the main attractions.

                      Hotel staff are generally not super polite, so do not expect smiles when you walk in.

                      Great location, down the hill from Hagia Sophia/Topkapi area. Excellent breakfast buffet. Pleasant lobby with comfortable surroundings. Great views from terrace.

                      There were multiple conventions and a wedding reception when we stayed. The hotel staff seemed to be preoccuppied and neglected the hotel guests. The hotel is in an area that gets much traffic in the afternoon/evening. The neighborhood ambiance around the hotel may put off some travellers; not "touristy" but average people living. Room views are lacking.

                      I liked the breakfast there very much. It has a great variety of grains and exotic dried fruits. Besides, the location of the rooftop restaurant is just great !

                      The internet. The wireless has some problem.

                      The staff are excellent and the rooms are comfortable, attactive and quite spacious; however, take care not to get a room under the roof terrace. If there is a function on the roof terrace, rooms under the terrace can be unbearably noisy. Breakfast is great and the views of the mosques or the sea from the dining area are fabulous.

                      Location, panorama

                      Breakfast is good. Rooms are clean and disigned in Turkish style. Very good location for visiting sights.

                      As the name indicates "old city" so I loved being in an area that had a lot of history and I could see it in every aspect of the hotel and the buildings surrounding it

                      The bed matress wasn't comfortable and irreplaceable which caused back aches. The Internet in the room wasn't working well and took time to fix it

                      Reasonably quiet: Close to the tourist attaractions and some good local restaurants: Pleasant view from hotel restaurant: Polite, efficient, friendly satff.

                      Limited view from the windows: Noise intrusion from neighbouring rooms.

                      i was very happy about the most affable reception staff and their friendly and personal service and advise. the roof terrace restaurant was excellent.

                      1. they should have ATM machine service as the nearest machine is far away.

                      The location of the hotel, the value-for money accomodation in Istanbul, free wi-fi

                      The refurbished superior room didnt meet my expectations and the fact that all non smoking room dont have a good sea view, since they are located in the corners of the hotel and not in the center. In addition, the breakfast could be better and different every day (after a point it was boring) and the staff could be more enthousiastic and friendlier.

                      clean and comfortable rooms, splendid rooftop terrace with view on both - sea on the south with sunrise and sunset and the highlghts of Istanbul - Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque.. and not to forget copious buffet breakfast. feast everyday! Loved every minute of the stay

                      Would have preferred to have more information from the front desk/lobby and in the room about the town and places to go.

                      In my opinion the hotel focuses on business people, cause there are seminar rooms as well as a business center, but that was totally ok with us. the room had a great size and it was 110% clean, as well as the bathroom! the breakfast is very local, we liked it but it could be that some "tourists" want to have the same breakfast as they do have at home and they might be dissapointed. I think it was great breakfast - even with fresh orange juice!

                      the hotel is located in sultanahmed directly at the sea. you need to walk about 7 minutes to Haggia Sophia and the Blue Mosque as well as the metro station (right next to it). there are many hotels closer to the metrostation but way more expensive. so if you don't mind walking a few minutes, the armada is the hotel for you. only thing I did not like was the WLAN. it says it's available in every room and it wasn't in mine ;) but no problem for me going to the lobby and catch the emails there.
