          the location was good to visit istanbul

          The staff doesn't speak english. When you ask for something they say yes but they didn't understand what you mean!!! We ask for coffee at 9.30 Am (the buffet close at 10.30 AM) and somebody said "finish"!!!!

          This hotel is very basic, it's not pretentious at all. Our room is exactly what I asked for, away from the street noise. Its bathroom is functional and clean, the view from our window is breathtaking esp at night. The buffet b'fast though is very limited and somehow they served almost the same food for the 4 days that we were there. The staff are friendly esp the receptionist, one who was assigned at daytime. The location is about 15-20 mins walk from the major tourist spots in Sultanahhmet. Their wi-fi connection was strong. Overall, I'll recommend this hotel to my family and friends, it was value for money. We had a lovely stay there!

          The only setback we had was that the TV connection wasn't working very well, the programs were all either in Turkish or Arabic languages only and when we asked for assistance, the technician never came.

          Hotel stuff are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, very close to main historical sights. We had a beautiful room with view to Blue Mosque. Good value for what we paid. Bfast is quite ok for unpretentious people. It's maybe 2-3 years old, so everything (except towels) looks still new.

          One night, when we came later, we had to wait under closed door of hotel for 20 minutes till someone opened. Last 2 mornings our AC went crazy and was waking us up with loud scarry noise and wouldnt turn off. But then it would stop after breakfast. Plasma TV in our room was showing only fashion TV, but we didnt complain, there was no time to watch it anyways. Otherwise it's quite recommendable, considering such good location and being quiten new.

          Stuff was very friendly, breakfast, cleaning perfect, location excellent.

          In April Istanbul is a little bit cold and the heating wasn't perfect. And in the street was a building operation, so it was sometimes noisy.

          small boutique hotel overlooking Mamara Sea. Standard rooms small but sufficient. Would definately stay there again

          minor issue with bathroom - resolved after a day.

          Great location close to the Blue Mosque. Quiet surrounding. The close railroadtracks did not disturb. Even the call for morning prayer was far away. The rooms were very clean and had good beds. Beautiful bathroom. The breakfast was good, served on the roof terrace with view to the Marmara Sea. The staff was very engaged. We did arrive after midnight and had no problem with the check-inn.

          Only one blanket in the room.

          Bucoleon Palace Hotel is situated in the very center of Sultanahmet and at the same time we felt like being away from all the tourists and the busy atmosphere at Sultanahmet. Furthermore the hotel offers a perfect view over the sea. The staff did a perfect job to make us feel comfortable and the breakfast was very good. We will definitely recommend Bucoleon Palace Hotel!!

          The hotel is very new and the rooms were thoroughly cleaned. Front desk girl was very nice, sincere, and hard working. There is a decent view of the marmara sea from the hotel roof terrace. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was nice, and the a/c system worked very well. Good location, not far from historic district by foot but could be a hike if you have any walking difficulties.

          There is a train that is close and it runs by regularly and is fairly noisy. Not a problem for me but it may be for you in case you are a light sleeper. The buffet breakfast was a horrible experience for me. Subsequeant early checkout experience was below my expectations due to hotel management giving poor customer service, leading to further aggravation of a sickening situation. Follow up service by the hotel management was dissapointing and below my expectations, so I do not plan on returning there again. Overall a disappointing experience for me, unfortunately and surprisingly based upon other reviews.

          The staff were friendly, the location was excellent and the breakfast on the terrace offered a beautiful view. The Hotel was a quick 5 minute walk to the blue mosque, tram, and top tourist sights. The wifi was free and ac worked great.

          The breakfast could have had a little more variety although for a small hotel it was reasonable and everything fresh daily.
