Armada Istanbul Old City Hotel Review

These comfortable accommodations are a 10-minute walk from Istanbul's main tourist sites, and most rooms look out either to the sea or over the old city—although one of the best views is at night from the hotel's rooftop Teras Restaurant, where you can see Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque. Despite its large size and four-star billing, the hotel has a friendly, even quirky, feel—how many hotels of this caliber have a pool full of turtles in the middle of the lobby?

    Armada Hotel Review

    Location is fine, interior design well conceived, views from rooftop are excellent in both directions. They provide a nice spread for breakfast on the roof. Front desk staff and doorman/security guy is at best indifferent- not the usual Turkish welcome.
