Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 12, 2007

We chose Orient Express for our 7 däy stäy in 2007 for the location and the swimming pool - eager swimmers and nothing else for children (12 and 14 ) to do in the evenings. The first evenings were OK,but suddenly on our 3rd morning the pool was "out of order ", "maybe in order until the next day".Nobody provided us spontaneously with new information although it was promised.We asked a couple times a day and got exactly the same answer: "maybe tomorrow" during all 4 remaining days. We never heard or saw any movement or repairing activity near the pool. But then a MIRACLE happened during our last night: At Sunday breakfast table an information leaflet giving up-to-date information (closed museums ,weather broadcast etc) advertised: "After a long day relax in the fantastic swimming pool" for the visitors of even other hotels in the Sirkeci group. Our children are good swimmers,don´t dirty/ break anything,don´t make abnormal noise.Nobody ever came to tell us "don´t do this" at the pool and there are no hotel rooms inte same or the next floor . We never saw anybodu else using the pool.So it seems clear the the hotel is using the pool for advertising , but doesn´t want real users- at least not without the extra 5 USd from people from other hotels. The rooms had minimal space for clothes and no shelves at all.There was 1 chair only,no sofa.
So,the location was OK,but there are many more hotels in the same are,perhaps most of them not even promising too much!

Unique Quality: Pool only in advertisements,not to be used in practice. The 4 stars of the hotel are very small stars compared to European standards - maybe 2 stars in western world

Small hotel in the old historic center. Topkapi Palace, Haya Sofia, Blue Mosque within walking distance. Rooms are clean, though a bit small (to take a shower you shouldn't be much taller than 1.85!)

Unique Quality: Swimming pool and a roof terrace with a breath taking view on the Bosporus

Directions: Old historic center

Worth its price by far, this small hotel in the centre of Istanbul, close to Hagia Sofia is great for a weekend trip. The rooms can be a bit small but it's well made up by the friendly management. The ottoman breakfast is great. There's also a bar and a small pool.

Unique Quality: The friendly management and the delicious breakfast.
