            7.8

            His(Her,Its) geographical situation, its cleanliness.

            The lack of arrangement cupboards, shelves: (4 flies for 2 persons). Yes it is the only criticism. To Improve quickly because really insufficient.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            the hotel was very ideal for our trip, near to most of the tourist attractions and staff was very helpful in guiding us.

          • Single
            8.8

            I stay at the hotel was for 4 days. The best part was that most of the staff knew english and were ready to help. I am a vegeration ad the food quality was very good.

          • Couple
            5.0

            The location was great and the hotel is near most sights. The tram stop is nearby.

            This hotel is overrated. The pool is more like a large bathtub. The airconditioning was pretty weak and the rooms were small. I visited friends at other hotels who paid less. Breakfast was not great. I would recommend against this hotel, you can do better for the price.

          • Couple
            5.8

            Location only.

            Not all staff spoke good English to communicate. Breakfast was served up to 10 am but the buffet was not refilled after 9.30 so there were not many things to eat after that time. The most important thing was that there was extra charge to use the gym something that was not stated on the hotel's services provided.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            Close to major highlights

            Slow service on everything (missing curtains, phone not functioning). Dark. Overlooking garbage of neighbouring buildings. Actual price higher due to currency difference.

          • Single
            9.6

            Friendly staff, modern design, good beds and above all a spectacular roof top with swimming pool, bar and a breathtaking view over the old city and beyond. The Orka Royal is situated in walking distance from a lot of landmarks, perfect for a city trip.

          • Single
            10.0

            Could not fault the hotel except for below

            The fitness center should be free, drinks are very expensive, I don't mind a 100% mark up but up to 600% is a little steep

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The hotel is the absolute best place to stay for a Istanbul city trip.The location is perfect, the roof terrace with stunning vieuw the Bosporus is a great place to relax on a deckchair in the sun beside the pool after a hectic day visiting the tourist attractions that are all on walkingdistance! The staff was more than helpfull if there was a problem in your room it was fixed in 5 minutes! A fantastic hotel great price/quality vallue.Marianne travel agent.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Rooftop Pool was fab Location fab - all round very good

            Breakfast was a bit basic but not a major issue

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Great location, amenities and overall experience. A real pleasant surprise in terms of prime location and cost for what you got. Close to everything worth seeing.

            The WiFi was a little annoying to connect to, you had to constantly log onto the system via your browser; a very impractical and convoluted system. Completely unnecessary.

          • Single
            4.2

            Absolutly nothing

            Dirty showers (both spa and rooms), super unconfotable beds, small rooms, they even gave me a plate of fruits where the peach was completly out of date (I would close this hotel), reception guy (of saturday) rude and lier as on the day after the lady for the same question gave me an honest answer.Overall its a hotel to avoid.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Location and the free transfer if you stayed for 3 nightss or more. Breakfast buffet was fantastic.

            No control of heating in your room. Centrally heated an way too cold at times.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Situated in the center of Istanbul, walking distance from most of the sights.

            The price is too high for such services, the stuff shoul do the work much better

          • Older travelers
            3.8

            The location is excellent, close to all shops, cafe's & restaurants. All well within walking distance. No need to catch taxis.

            Hotel is very old & in my opinion a 4 star rating is extremely generous. Should be rated at 2 & 1/2 star. Hotel employees clearly do not understand the concept of customer service, a lot to learn.
