Clean but not spacious rooms,very kind personnel,strategic position at about twenty meters from Gulhane tram station.Very good turkish breakfast with western items as well. Near Agia Sophia,Topkapi,Blue mosque. Excellent room insulation and little noise coming from nearby road. In this part of the town most of the hotels have similar rooms,because probably the architecture of the times prescribed such a standard. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Clean, comfortable, very good position and price-value relationship (paid 22€ per night per person). We stayed in a nice double room (303), just a bit little, but with a wide bathroom ad a confortable bed, TV, air conditioning, wireless internet. The only problem: room was in front of the elevator with a noisy door. We have been lucky because at the time there was no one else on our floor :) Breakfast buffet was ok but could be improved with a wider choice of sweets.

For those who want to spend time in Istanbul, not in a hotel, this is fine. You will be well looked after and a good breakfast is offered. Room size is very small and a less enormous bed would be a good idea

This was our third time in Adora Hotel. The rooms are quite small but the staff is very kind and the location is excellent, just in a few minutes walking distance to historical highlights and close to the tram, if we want to reach Istanbul Modern for example. In a pedestrian area, surrounded by restaurants, we especially enjoy some rest each evening drinking a free apple tea.

Quite nice hotel. It is located much close to the most famous historical places of Istanbul. It is easy to be reach from the airport through public transportation, what is much convenient since this avoids the usual traffic jams of Istanbul. It has a very rich breakfast (buffet). The staff is quite cooperative, helping with maps and tourist information. It has lift. I really recommend it.

Staying at Hotle Adora was the nicest experience I've ever had aa=t a hotel. The staff was incredibly attentive in a genuine and endearing manner. The hotel was comfortable and literally just a few steps from the tram and major sites like Topkapi Palace, but, being on a side street, it was also quiet. The breakfast was excellent, with fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, sausage, etc. I cannot wait to go back to Adora!

Apart from accommodation, the hotel does not provide extra facilites and services. However, good quality accommodation for the price. Breakfasts slightly above average, menu does not affer a great variety but the food is good. Location of hotel very good and just next to the tramway. In general recommendable accommodation

Nous avons bien apprécié notre séjour à l’hôtel Adora. Il est idéalement situé pour se déplacer à pied vers les divers endroits à visiter. De plus, il est situé à 50 m d’un arrêt de tram, pour les plus longues distances. Cela permet ainsi de rentrer pour se relaxer un peu et repartir visiter. L’hôtel est situé dans une rue calme et les fenêtres présentent une bonne isolation anti-bruit. Notre chambre à 3 lits était petite mais propre et bien chauffée. Le petit-déjeuner offre un buffet varié et bien garni. Le personnel est accueillant, chaleureux et disponible pour des aides et des conseils, spécialement le jeune homme aux longs cheveux de la réception ! Nous pouvons recommander cet hôtel pour son très bon rapport qualité-prix.

The hotel was very nice and the inside/outside seating area had a great atmosphere and very inviting. The staff was excellent and very accomodating, especially the hotel manager - Saffet. The hotel was also in a great location, near historical sites, the water, many restaurants and shops. The rooms were very small but clean. The only complaint we had is the room we were assigned #501(top floor)which was located next to either the kitchen vent or a motorized unit. We could hear a hum and feel the vibration from our room throughout the night, however, it wasn't bad enough for us to ask for a different room. We also had free wireless internet which was great! We'll be back again.

Adora Hotel is in a great location with really helpful staff. Short walk to Topkapi and Aya Sofia. Restaurants basically across the street. A little bit hard to find as it is down a lane that is not a through road. Well worth it. We spent 4 days there and liked it a lot.

I really enjoyed staying at the Adora Hotel with my parents who are in their 60's - they liked it too. I have stayed at several other hotels around the Sultanahmet area and found that this one has an ideal location - it is on a pretty, quiet street a short few min. walk to all the Sultanahmet attractions and in the opposite direction are the nearby ferry docks/train station/Spice Market. The hotel is also located right next to the beautiful Gulhane Park too (where there is a shortcut to/from Topkapi past the archaeological museum). Also, it is about a 30 sec. walk to a tram station that can take you right up to the Grand Bazaar (3 stops away), down to the docks/Spice Market (2 stops away)or across the Golden Horn. But if you would like to walk, it is just a short walk to these places. The rooms are a bit small, but who visits to Istanbul to stay in their room? And most comparable hotel rooms in this part of Istanbul are small anyhow. Our room was nicely decorated and clean with a spacious bathroom, quiet air-conditioning and good mattresses and pillows. I think the hotel has been recently refurbished. The television had international news in English - I didn't check out the other channels. There were also slippers and nice fluffy robes. There is an elevator. Breakfast was much better than I expected (I think it has been improved since earlier reviews) with more variety than the usual Turkish breakfast, delicious too - 8 am breakfast was enough to tide us over until almost 2 pm. There is also a computer with internet off the lobby for free use. Despite the nearby tram, it is very quiet with double glazed windows and there is no noisy call to prayer at 5 AM like I have been awakened with at other hotels in Sultanahmet. The staff was excellent and caring - friendly, and they spoke good English. They were always ready to help us. Tea and coffee are free any time you want, a nice touch. Highly recommended, excellent value.

While this hotel is well situated near historical sites, we found the staff to be unfriendly and unhelpful. Breakfast and dinner were less than satisfactory. The room was adequate although cramped.

The Adora provided a quiet and homely setting to explore the Sultanameht area of Istanbul. It is within easy walking distance of the old city and on a tram route. Although a busy area, the rooms are double glazed and quiet. Like many hotels there is no "in room" tea and coffee so take your own supplies!

This hotel was ideal. We stayed at hotel Adora for 12 nights. The manager, and all staff, were warm, friendly, attentive, and extremely helpful. The location is ideal, walking distance to major points of interest. All services were excellent. Breakfast was great. The room was pleasant and clean, shower is better than home, and there is a small refrigerator in the room. High speed internet is free. Complimentary coffee and tea are available 24 hours a day. There is a restaurant on the main floor. There is also an elevator. We loved our stay, and highly recommend Hotel Adora.
