I stayed here with a group of clients and everyone seemed to find the hotel adequate for their needs. Even though it is near the main road it is secluded enough so as to avoid traffic noice. But the hotel is popular with wedding groups and the outdoor rooftop is used many nights for noisy wedding parties, but luckily the parties end at a reasonable hour. Nice lobby and bar area. Rooftop breakfast area looks out on Hagia Sofia and the Sea of Marmara. Staff in the restaurant are a bit indifferent but OK overall.

Overall good and friendly service, excellent breakfast with a nice view from the roof terrace. I joined a conference and stayed 3 nights in Armada . Room was little bit small but very clean and stylish designed. Bathroom modern and very clean. I would expect lower price in November. Location is near Blue Mosque and TopKapi - necessary to step up.

We stayed at the Armada Hotel for Tango festival and everything was just great. People were very friendly. Location is fantastic, close to all historical sites. I highly recommend this hotel...

The receptionist gave us a room with half view to the ocean, eventhough we had only paid room with view at the city.
We thought the air conditioning was not working and in less than a minute they were in the room fixing our ignorance.
we asked for an extra blanket and they send a delicious crispy clean comforter.
The breakfast buffet was out of this world. you dididnt know were to start.
the food for dinner was awasome 5 star restaurant. the vew at thr resatauran was splendid either way , to the ocean or to the old town.
But the cherry on the cake was the concierge ""ozzy"" he went all the way in having all the answers and solution to our requests.
Giving advice so we would not get ripped of by taxis, or sales people. recomending restaurants , relaxing massages and turkish baths and even planing your tours.
you dont need to plan ahead your tours , you only need to be at least 15 days to really enjoy turkey. i cant wait to go back
I loved the location it was at the entrance of the old city ,were all the atractions are.
also i preferred the turkish decoration and enviroment to a very modern hotel

This is actually my fifth year to travel with Union/Assa Abloy conference and each year we are doing the conference in different countries.

As far as hotel accommodation is concerned, Armada Hotel is the best hotel interms of service and staff (this includes the man in the guest relation area).
It may not be luxurious in terms of facilities/amenities but the cleanliness within the building is amazing. the bed sheets, pillows, carpets, bathroom and the sourounding areas are very neat and nicely placed. it is like 'CLEAN AS YOU GO".Thats why i am very much comfortable during my stay.

Overall I had a great time in your hotel and if I ever have a chance to come back in Turkey, i will definitely book my stay in Armada.

thanks a lot guys, keep it up
