Must-stay hotel in a marvelous city!
I met my son in Istanbul for a week and stayed at the Armada based on its reviews and location in Sultanahmet. It was perfect. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the location was a short walk away from all of the Sultanahmet historical and cultural sights, and the restaurant food for both breakfast and dinner was great - overlooking the river on one side and the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque on the other. I would stay there again if I ever had the chance to return to Istanbul.

Very Good8.0
Armada Hotel, Istanbul
The location, staff, room cleanliness, wifi access are EXCELLENT. The room is a nice size and very clean. I gave it 4 stars for few things that could stand improvement. We stayed on the second floor, the restaurant is on the third floor so we heard a lot of chairs and tables moving around, no big deal but was a bit noisy. The shower is perhaps a bit perplexing, it is missing a door, seems to be typical and normal but taking a shower without spraying the whole bathroom was challenging... The bathroom however was very clean and modern. The electrical outlets seemed a little old, even with the European plug adapter, our cable kept falling out. Other places we stayed, the receptacles had the ability to accept either the US plug or the European 220V plugs, at the Armada an adapter was needed, not mission critical as long as you take care and maybe use a piece of tape to keep the plugs in place. Having said all that, the view alone from the restaurant is worth the stay, the location, the friendly staff and the quaint neighborhood.
