                    • The location was perfect and tram was just outside the the Hotel. The staff were all friendly and helpful particularly front of house, rooms were clean. Breakfast was really good and the RECEPTIONIST was wonderful.

                    • The location is excellent and the hotel is on the main road in the old town of Istanbul. The service itself is very good and the rooms are nice and clean.

                      Breakfast poor.

                    • Tram just outside takes you to the new part of town and location is perfect. Empire palace hotel is very well positioned and the lobby, restaurant and room ambiance is good. Staff always willing to help and suggest ideas, the breakfast could have been improved.

                    • The tram runs just outside, within walking distance to the most beautiful attractions in the city and good location close to key iconic sites. Hotel is very well positioned and great advice from the reception team on shopping. Water is provided free of charge every day and the breakfast on the terrace restaurant is sumptuous, varied and filling.
