                The Acra Hotel is a beautiful building with comfortable and high quality design in all areas. The breakfast room has ancient foundations, the service in all respects was impeccable. The desk staff was very helpful. I would stay again any time.

                Beautiful small hotel in a 2-minute walk from the Hagia Sophia, with very friendly staff and pleasant trifles such sheep cheese, fresh strawberries and honey in the comb for breakfast & free wi-fi in the rooms. Were very satisfied.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Very convenient location. Very helpful staff. Comfortable room.

                We thought that the breakfast was not up to the standard of the other facilities of the hotel.

                10.0

                The staff was very nice, the location was great

                The breakfast is a little poor. I also would have appreciated if the staff had warned us about all the swindling going on in Istanbul: taxis not starting the meters, charging you double, shoe shiners dropping their brush, etc... Tourists beware!

                Excellent location with excellent staff. Breakfast was good. We booked a triple room which was of a decent size. Staff courtesy and positive attitude made all the difference.

                excellent location in a peaceful and safe areal

                breakfast warm dishes were not warm

              • Family with children
                9.2

                Location, friendly staff, new clean luxury bathroom, good shower, space, good mattress with comfy sheets, nice interior with good quality furniture.

                The room next door was a family with a baby and young children. I was woken up a couple of times by baby crying at mid night/ early hours. I could hear even whispering voices. The double grazing window was good to keep the noise outside shut.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Very friendly and helpfull personnel. Excellent location in the ancient part of the city.

                Hotel and rooms are ok but not overwhelming (compared to the pictures on the website)

              • Family with children
                9.2

                The locatıon, the fact that our famıly room was ın fact two lovely rooms (each wıth tv) and were nıce and quıet. The staff are very helpful and frıendly, but as we tend to be very ındependent and well-ınformed we dıd not need any of the tour servıces on offer. If you are wonderıng whether you mıght want to take your famıly to see what turns out to be a beautıful fun excıtıng cıty, check ınto the Acra.

                The hotel had old world charm, though new itself, and its service was personalized and helpful. We would highly recommend it. Its location for the traditional sites of Istanbul was particularly useful and food and memento shopping was near at hand.

                Near to sultan ahmet (blue) mosque. Good staff. Internet is covered very well.

                We sayed at acra for a week. With this been our first trip to Istanbul we didnt know what to expect. We were impressed from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were warmly greeted and assisted to our room, by friendly, courtious and professional staff. Lale and all the staff on all levels were absolutely fabulous. Nothing we needed or asked was too much to ask for, from arranging our daily tours, which by the way were fantastic experiences and great value for money Eg the Bosphorus Cruise, the Gallipoli Tour, The Orient Dinner to the Tour of the Alsofya Mosque to basic needs such as adapters for our mobiles. Breakfast was generous and fresh as well beautifully presented also a great variety was always available. The complimentary daily afternoon tea was so delicious we couldnt get enough and really looked forward to it. Location is also perfect, close to everything. Cant wait to go back. We miss the place and the lovely people.
