I visit Istanbul with my family and friends, it is small nice hotel close to old city attractions. Staff of the hotel was very helping and nice, they made our stay better than we expected.

I visited istanbul with my family and stayed at a small nice hotel that was close to all the attractions. The people there were welcoming and very helpful. They made our stay even better than expected.

We stayed at the hotel as part of a travel package with a group of about 20 people, so had no choice of hotel. It is in a good location with trams into the old part of town a 100 metres away. First night not good so after speaking to the friendly hotel reception staff we moved into what I...

We stayed in this hotel during early May 2013. We usually stay in Taksim when visiting Istanbul, but this time we decided to change the area and picked the area of Laleli, and the Istanbul Royal hotel. The best part of the hotel is the easy access to the Aksaray tram station, you need only 1 minute walking. The hotel...

This hotel is a fair price for what you get, it was comfortable with a limited but adequate breakfast. Ask for a room on the upper floors (we stayed on the 7th floor) as the street can be noisy. It is a 2 minutes walk from Aksaray tram station which is very convenient for accessing all the sights in the...

As an elderly lady travelling alone I was a bit worried. However, the staff at The Royal were wonderful. On my first night my room was near the lift and stairs when I mentioned that I am a light sleeper they immediately moved my luggage to a much quieter room. I can honestly say that this was a Hotel that...

The Service is Not equal to the facade. Nö, they are indeed Not very welcoming or overly friendly. The breakfast is unexciting, and a decent Cup of coffee is Not to be had in the entire Hotel. The Rooms are a fair size, but simple. Nö Full Length mirror, and Ladies, the hair dryers are useless. Best bring your own....
