We booked in this hotel for my mother's first trip in Istanbul and let me say that I was more than I could imagine ...... REALLY THANK YOU ROMANCE HOTEL Every thing was perfect : the welcome, the staff (nicest staff I Ve ever seen), the breakfast yummy, the room .... It is just perfect we stayed before at the Grand Hyatt Istanbul and let me say that Romance hotel was soooooo much far from for grand Hyatt in matter of every thing The hotel is very Well located, in heart of the center, less then 10min walk from every historical site. Besides, even if it is on the center, you don't listen en any noise on night... You will sleep as a baby This will be my hotel in Istanbul for every trip I will make in the future ! Thank you for the staff and for the manager also ...nicest people you will ever meet

It was my first visit to Istanbul. I wanted the Turkish Hotel instead of US. That was why I chose this hotel. I stayed here for 6 days. I even missed booking one night and the concierge was very accommodating to add an extra night. Overall my stay was very pleasant! The hotel is just a short walk to the 2 historic mosques. The staff are friendly and helpful.

I arrived here last night. I arranged in advance with the hotel for shuttle pickup from the airport. The check-in experience was very smooth and the room was very clean and tidy. The service and staff are all hospitable and friendly. Everything you need is within walking distance. The breakfast was very good with many Western and Middle Eastern options. I will write another update at the end of my stay after I try the Hammam and other features.

Amazing service and accommodations! My sister, my mom and I chose to stay at Romance Istanbul based on the good reviews we saw when researching hotels - and we were not disappointed. The staff are helpful and always pleasant. We’d like to thank Zumre in guest relations, Tayfun, at front desk, Ramazan at front desk, Dilek in the dining room, and Menekse in housekeeping. The airline lost our luggage and front desk helped us with making calls and were instrumental in assisting us in getting our luggage back. The staff made our stay wonderful and helped us in planning our daily trips into the city. In every way they made our trip a great experience. Thank you and we plan on coming back and staying with you!

We just wrapped our stay at the Romance Istanbul Hotel and loved our stay here. We can’t say enough about the wonderful staff here that made it much more special. Our luggage was delayed when we arrived. The staff was incredibly helpful and went over and above in their service to get it to us. Special recognition and appreciation to Tayfun and Ramazan for helping us with locating and getting our suitcases to us, Zumre for her excellent concierge service and daily meetings to help plan our day. Also want to recognize Dilek for the delicious Turkish coffee and Cay every day and making breakfast that much more delicious. And lastly to Menekse, our housekeeping lady for doing an excellent job in our room. All in all, this hotel is highly recommended to make your stay in Istanbul that much more special. We’ll definitely be back again!
