The hotel is quite close to the tram station, which allows you to get to the airport easily in spite of all the traffic jams that happen in Istanbul in the evening - it takes about an hour by train.↲↲The hotel is in the very cultural centre - you will get to the Blue Mosque and Higha-Sofia in 10 minutes walk. It's also very easy to rich the famous lively Istiklal street, which is just across the Galata bridge.↲I especially enjoyed the top terrace with a wonderful view on the Bosphorus and all the mosques.↲Rooms are beautifully furnitured and all the hotel is quite a lux!
The conditioner is a bit noisy.
Location, rate, service. Staff friendly and helpful.
Rooms are too small, neighberhood full of works, A/C not working properly.
Excellent in all ways, would recommend to anyone going to Istanbul
The locatıon. It was near a Tram statıon as well as all the maın attractıons ın the old cıty. It was convenient for a fırst stay ın Istambul.
Theır heatıng and aır condıtıonnıng system. It seems that my rooms (126) was near theır central system. The noıse was so lound that ıt was almost ımpossıble to have nıce rest. In addıtıon I complaıned three tıme to the staff. The fırst tıme they told me they wıll try to do somethıng but there ıs not a lot of chance ıt wıll work. The second tıme (ın the mornıng) they told me to worry because I was about to leave ın the mornıng. The thırd tıme (when I cheked out) they told me that was constructıon work wıch was hard to beleıve sınce I fırst complaıned at one oclock ın the mornıng (I m not sure theu are workıng around the clock)
Good service, good location. Rooftop pool. There was initially a problem with the reservation, but the Hotel managed to upgrade us for the inconvenience. Very much appreciated.
Price of the bar.
Location, easy access to the restaurants, transportation and attractions.
Poor Internet Connection. Separate charge for Sauna and Hamam was ridiculous
A smile from the staff at the reception soetimes would be appreciated. Wireless signal very poor everywhere in the hotel. Fridge was not working (even about that the staff had some justification like "it's not broken it's just that doesn't chill much"!. I noticed that the room has not been hoovered (some pieces of paper were still on the floor where i left them in the morning).
Orsep Royal Hotel is really well located in Sirkeci, going by foot to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque was only about 5 minutes.. The staff was excellent, and I mean that with all the meaning of the word, since they helped us with everything, some became friends with us, they even volunteered to give us a tour of the city, either for historical places, or for night time..
Only the fact that if you move by taxi, not many taxi drivers know the hotel and get confused.. But of course that is not the hotel's fault.
With a stay at Orka Royal Hotel & Spa, you'll be centrally located in Istanbul, a 9-minute walk from The Egyptian Bazaar and 10 minutes by foot from Hagia Sophia. Featured amenities include a business center, express check-in, and express check-out. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
