    We stayed with two kids at orient, and our stay was excellent, the staff, services everything was perfect. They also cooperated a lot and changed my room and offered me a big room at same price for my family.Also they guided us in detail where to visit. Breakfast was similar to five star hotel, infact the best I get in my whole trip. I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay in Sultan Ahmet.

    The staff were extreemly friendly, helpful and fast. The location of hotel is perfect for shopping as well as sightseeing tours. The food is fabulous and you should all try the roof terrace restaurant and Pacazade restaurant. They offer a 7 stars level cuisine. The rooms are very clean. The reception can arrange for you all different types of tours so that you will see all different attractions in Istanbul and never feel that you missed anything.

    Rooms are really small, and should have more options for cable english channels with an lcd.

    Fabulous

    The most outstanding thing about the hotel was the very friendly and helpful staff. It was really well located for seeing all the sites and although on a fairly main road which the trams ran down it was very quiet at night. Rooms were very comfortable, although quite traditional in decor, with attention to detail in terms of having everything that you would need (incuding a pull out line above the bath which we could dry out swimming costumes on). Breakfast was more than adequate - cereals, meats / cheeses / breads & pastries plus a hot selection.

    My only complaint is that the hotel bar was rather lacking in atmosphere

    Good

    The hotel staff is very kind. We could receive 1 bottle of filtrated water every day at our room by free of charge. The location of hotel is very convenient for us because there are many restaurants near the hotel.

    The bathtub is small.

    Mother and daughter travelled together, daughter in Istanbul for the first time. Coming back to orient Express, she said: - Feels like coming home. This is pretty much the feeling you get when you arrive, it's like coming home. Friendly and helpful staff, always there to help out.

    The location of the hotel is excellent, and the staff are extremely courteous, helpful and friendly. I dined one evening in the terrace restaurant, and the meal was delicious.

    The only comment I would make is that the hotel is perhaps just a little 'tired' and may need looking at for such things as shampooing the carpets and keeping maintenance up to date.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is ideally located within easy walking distance of most of the main tourist attractions and transport links. The tram stops just around the corner making it simple to get there from the airport and also to get around the city. The hotel staff were extremely helpful particularly the front desk staff who spoke excellent English and went out of their way to provide information on arrival and make our stay comfortable. There is an excellent choice of foods at breakfast catering for the wide variety of international visitors and the staff were cheerful and friendly. Rooms are not huge but have everything needed for a comfortable city stay and there was a high standard of cleanliness throughout. A swim in the basement pool was a nice start to the day. The hotel is not flashy or trendy or fashionable but it provides a constantly high standard of friendly service which is certain to ensure return guests. Computers with printers enabled us to check in and print boarding passes for our return flight. Thoroughly recommended.

    Exceptional

    Our stay in Istanbul was great. The Orient Express Hotel was the best choice in Hotels that we have made in the last 10 years of International travel. This was mainly due to the following factors: 1.The Hotel staff - every one of them - were fantastic. In reception, in the bar, in the breakfast area, room cleaners and most of all in the great rooftop restaurant IMBAT. 2.Advice from hotel staff helped us go on a great Bosphorus Cruise as well as the Dervish display at the cultural centre along with lots of information on best timings to visit other sites of interest. 3.Checkout was smooth and easy even with using multiple currencies in cash. A great city break hotel!!!

    The Orient Express Hotel, was excellent from the moment we arrived till the day we left, the staff were excellent, and they could not do enough for you, they were so helpful, that nothing was not to much trouble for them. The Restaurant on the top floor, The views overlooking the Marmara Sea, were stunning, especially at night, The food served in the Restaurant was excellent, and great value for money. I would highly recomend this Hotel for anyone looking for great value, and a warm welcome, in a great area of Istanbul, close to all the main sights in the city.

    Everything was perfect

    Brilliant little hotel where staff keen to ensure that you enjoy your stay in Istanbul. Some sweet touches. Theme great and location fantastic for the old city sights. Excellent roof terrace restaurant - but remember to book.

    We were on the 7th floor just below the roof terrace so it could be a little noisy for those after an early night

    Its location, very friendly hospitable staff, and excellent breakfast buffet. We have traveled all over the world and we think their breakfast buffet is one of the best if not the best! We especially liked the honey served in honeycomb and the wide selection of food. We had a room on the top floor with a view of the Bosphorous strait, and it was just wonderful at night. Its location gives one a flavor of the old Istanbul, which we were more interested in. Close to Galata bridge and walking distance to everywhere. We only have good things to say about this hotel, and we would stay there again on our next Istanbul visit.
