Awesome Experience Indeed”

Perfect Location, Superb Hospitality & Wonderful Personal Care

Had a great experience staying for 3 nights at Megara Palace. The hotel is perfectly located at the best place in Sultanahmet. Since it is an old house converted to a boutique hotel, the rooms are small but they were nicely decorated... Housekeeping was very good... The hospitality was simply amazing and won our hearts... The roof top cafe had a beautiful view overlooking panoramic Bosphorus....the breakfast was just perfect.... Only there was no choice of eggs and you have to eat only boild eggs (a feedback for the management) Special mention to the manager John, who takes personal initiative to be a tour guide for the guest for free and extremely helpful... The simles of the people will really make you feel at home... A very positive recommendation to stay at Megara in Sultanahmet, Istanbul...

MEGARA PALACE REVIEW”

Proximity to tourist attractions / attentive and helpful staff / ambience

We had a comfortable stay. Had to complain once due to very noisy neighbours who were very very loud at 2 AM. Hotel could provide a kettle and tea / coffee bags in each room to make stay more comfortable as it is almost impossible to find tea / coffee early morning in the hotel or within its surrounding areas. Staff very helpful to guide / recommend tours.

Great Location - Poor Upkeep - Good Breakfast”

The hotel is very well situated with easy access to everything including local restaurants. Downside is the hotel is NOT well maintained at all. It is outdated, shower was very dirty with mold and the aircon was on life-support on top of the rooms being tiny. Decent breakfast with fantastic view of the waterfront which isn't worth all the negatives.. You can find better deals a stone throw away. Wouldn't recommend to a friend:-(

One of the best experiences in Istanbul”

-Prime location within 5-10 mins walks to Blue mosque and Aya sofia and Tram station. The area around the hotel is full of restuarant, convenient store and everthing that tourist needed. - All the staffs are very friendly and super helpful!!! This is not usual for normal Turkish standard. They are like the oasis in the desert. All of them speak fluent English and this is very important for first time traveller in Istanbul. For me asa solo traveller when I met them I feel like meeting a friend that I can trust. I didn't exaggerated , there are a lot of cheated people along the street in Istanbul. They helped me for the direction, airport transfer,even sending the postcard. Every customer questions, they tried their best to answer. - the breakfast at the hotel roof top restuarant is mavelous. It has the great view of the Bosphorus. The breakfast has varieties of food. You will like it. - the atmosphere of the hotel: you feel like home. Good decoration and lighting. One minor problem is the room wall is not sound proof. So if it possible avoid the room next to the stair. But believe me this is very little thing compared to what you got. There is small Art gallery shop next to Lobby. You can admire all the Turkish style art works if you love art. It is very inspiring. I definitely recommend this Gem to all friends to ensure that they will have at least good time in this hotel.

I was a young female solo traveler and found this place perfect!! Staff were so helpful and kind, everything you could possibly want to see is all within 50m (Palace, blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, Museums) and bosphous and Grand Bazzar 15 min walk (maybe less) or simple tram ride (4turkish Lira). Megara place was perfect it was so central to everything in Istanbul yet away from the busy streets!!
