I have just returned from a trip to Istanbul, where I was accomodated at Acra Hotel. I picked the hotel for the entire group I was travelling with after reading these reviews and everyone was satisfied with my choise.
The hotel is perfectly located on a quiet street in Sulthanamet, close to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque (around 5 minutes on a lazy walk).
First of all, I have to say the staff is great - very friendly and helpful. As we arrived early in the morning, they arranged a few rooms for us before check-in time, in order to leave our luggages. In the mean time, we were served with tea or coffee. Then, they arranged for us a cruise trip over the Bosphorus at a resonable price. When we came back, there was a cake buffet in the lobby - and I must say the buffet is served daily, in the afternoon, with tea and sweets.
Rooms were spacious, nice furbished - with a touch of oriental style, very clean (as seen in the official hotel's pictures). They were provided with flat TV screen, tea corner, minibar, safe box and all the necessary in the bathroom. The ones in upper floor had nice view over the sea or Sulthanamet.
Breakfast was good, with sweets, turkish food, different kinds of cheese and even two tipes of comb with honey.
We really enjoyed our stay and they were even kind enough to let us check-out later, as our flight was in the afternoon and there were rooms available.
I have to say this hotel was the best choise I could have made, due to its location, accomodation conditions, services and friendly stuff. I would really go back again.
