    Very nicely decorated rooms and breakfast lounge.Professional and very helpful staff ( many thanks to Mr.Tarik at the reception ).Very clean room.Fantastic location. Breakfast quality and quatntity is more than what you expect for the price paid. Breathtaking view from the roof top terrace. At this hotel you receive much more attention than what you receive at the majority of branded hotels where you pay for name and logo .KEEP IT UP FOLKS.

    I liked very much the friendly atmosphere, the kindness and amability of the reception staff, very helpful and attentive. The hotel is very new, I think. The room is very clean, the bathroom is well equipated. I enjoyed breakfast, too, with all you might want to eat in the morning. The location is unbeatable, few meters from The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, right in the center, but still very quiet. From the terrace you can see the sea.

    The owner and staff were wonderful! They gave us great advice for sightseeing and shopping then welcomed us "home" with a cup of tea at the end of the day as we reported on our adventures. The room was cozy and comfortable with a great private balcony from which we could see the Bosporus and up the street to the blue mosque. A rooftop terrace has a million dollar view. Breakfast was buffet style with fresh fruits and veggies, hot eggs and great little pastries. The location is steps away from Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, the cisterns and a wonderful little street bazaar. We'll definitely go back to the Magnaura Palace.

    Excellent brand new hotel wich such friendly and helpful staff with fluent English. My special compliments to Mehmet, the owner, always Around with a great smile and very hepfull. Location is perfect, 3 minute walk to main historic destinations, as such to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia and Grand Bazaar. The hotel is just a short walk to Sultanahmet station. Within 2 short blocks there were many excellent cafes, restaurantes and cute stores. The rooms are very gracious, everyhting so neat and well decorated. A Turkish style breakfast is included as well as free Wi-Fi. I already recomended the hotel to many friends that are going to Istanbul by the end of the year. But what makes this place really special is the open terrace - incredibly romantic place from which you can see the whole city, Bosphorus and Asia, along with Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. I just love it! Very special place indeed.

    That I could not stay longer.

    The staff at Magnaura was exceptionally friendly and helpful; I can't say enough good things about them! Additionally, the location was just perfect - right in the heart of Old Town walking distance from all the major sights (Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Sofia, Grand Bazaar, etc).
