Hello from Istanbul! We arrived on Tuesday, October 25 at 5:30 pm after a 10 hour flight from Chicago. Our guide met us at the airport and brought us to our hotel which is a block from the Marmara Sea. After a very interesting breakfast of many things we couldn't identify or have never eaten before (but all very good), we left for a full day tour …

... us to charge the phones. The weather was awful all the way and the temperature dropped from 18 Dec C to 10 Deg C. by the time we got to Istanbul. In the early part of the ride we managed to see the great scenery of Turkey, the vast plateaus and the varying mountain ranges. The only comic relief came from a middle aged American couple who were on the first shuttle bus to Denizli. They ignored the advice of the booking agent ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Armada Hotel Istanbul

    Il était une fois à Istanbul...

    from

    Nous avons passé 5 nuits à l'Armada Hotel et nous avons goûté au mode de vie d'Istanbul à l'ancienne. Il est situé au coeur de la vieille ville, et il y a une vue superbe des mosquées de SultanAhmet et de l'Hagia Sophia.

    Très bon hôtel

    from

    J'ai passé quatre nuits là-bas. J'étais enchanté. Le personnel était sympathique et serviable. La situation est aussi géniale.

    Toll

    from

    Dies ist ein relativ bescheidenes, aber ausgezeichnetes Hotel mit wunderbarem Ausblick auf das Marmara Meer, den Bosphorus, die Blaue Moschee und die Hagia Sophia. Über einen kurzen, wenn auch steilen Weg gelangt man zum Topkapi Palast. Der Zug hält ganz in der Nähe, es gibt jedoch keinerlei Lärmbelästigung. Das Restaurant im Hotel ist ausgesprochen gut, die Betten sind bequem, die Leitungen modern und die Klimaanlage funktioniert einwandfrei. Nur das Four Seasons Hotel, das ganz in der Nähe liegt, scheint noch eine Klasse besser zu sein, allerdings ist es auch um einiges teurer. Dieses Hotel ist ein toller Ausgangspunkt um das alte Istanbul zu erkunden.

    Toller Sylvesterabend

    from

    Ich habe das Armada Hotel durch den Reiseveranstalter Marmara gebucht, um hier Sylvester 2006 zu feiern. Das Hotel befindet sich in der Altstadt, einige Zimmer haben einen tollen Ausblick auf die Blaue Moschee und die Hagia Sophia. Es sind nur einige Minuten zu Fuß zu vielen Museen und Sehenswürdigkeiten wie dem Großen Bazar und dem Topkapi Palast. Wenn auch das Hotel Veranstaltungsräume, Restaurants und Bars hat, so bekommte man nicht das Gefühl in einem sterilen, ernsten 4-Sterne Hotel zu sein, sondern ganz im Gegenteil, eher in einem schmucken Boutique Hotel mit freundlichen Angestellten und der Schildkrötenfamilie, die einem in der herrlichen Eingangshalle (Ottoman Ecke, Spiele, Wireless Internet, Bilder, Dekorationen) begrüßt. Das beeindruckendste war der Sylvesterabend mit 500 Gästen, Zigeunermusik, Bauchtänzerinnen, einer Musikband und einem vorzüglichen Truthahn. Wir waren Mitternacht auf der Terrasse und haben so das neue Jahr mit Champagner und Feuerwerk begrüßt, eine herrliche Nacht dank dem Armada.

    Loved it.

    from

    I've been to Istanbul several times and have stayed in different hotels each time. So far, the Armada Hotel in Sultanahmet is my favorite. While many of the Sultanahmet hotels bill themselves as "traditional Turkish" in my experience that is code for "tiny rooms lacking certain comforts"... The Armada Hotel does have elements of traditional Turkish flair but the rooms are modernly comfortable. It is a fairly large hotel so if you are seeking an intimate, near bed&breakfast experience then this may not be your best choice.

    Once upon a time in Istanbul...

    from

    We stayed at Armada Hotel for 5 nights and experienced Istanbul lifestyle from years ago. Located on heart of the Old City. excellent wiew of SultanAhmet and Hagia Sophia.

    Wow

    from

    This is a relatively modest but immaculate hotel with astonishing views of the Sea of Marmora, the Bosphorus, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. A short albeit steep hike uphill brings you to the entrance of Topkapi Palace. The train stops close by but the noise levels in the rooms are minimal. The in house restaurant is extremely good, beds are comfortable, the plumbing is modern and the air conditioner works well. Only the nearby Four Seasons struck us as more attractive and the price differential is substantial. Great base for the "old" section of Istanbul.

    Very Good Hotel

    from

    Spent four nights here. Delighted. Good value. Friendly and helpful staff. The location is great too.

    Great new year eve

    from

    I came to Armada with marmara tour operator for celebrating the new year 2006. The hotel is in the old city, some rooms has a great views of sea or Blue Mosque and St. Sophia and only a few minutes walk to major museums and monuments like Grand Bazar and Topkapi Palace.

    Good hotel, fantastic location

    from

    Breakfast is fabulous, staff very friendly, only thing is with turkey being such a cheap country don't drink anything in the hotel (including tea and coffee) apart from breakfast as it is a lot cheaper outside. Generally turkish people very friendly as long as you are sympathetic to their culture.
