  • 8.0.Very good

    What a fantastic location. It really can’t get any better. The view from the rooftop restaurant and the panoramic restaurant where a good breakfast was available was indeed incredible. We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Because we arrived at midnight at Ataturk airport, we asked the hotel to arrange a transfer for us. It too worked like clockwork. Our room was a bit smaller than we would have hoped for but the location more than made up for it. Highly recommend a stay

    An excellent hotel perfectly positioned

    The hotel is perfectly positioned for all the great sites. Just five minutes walk to Aya Sofya and the Topkapi Palace. Two minutes to the Cistern etc. Rooms where of a good size as I also saw the one our friends were in. The top floor Restaurant offers much better food than can be found in the nearby cafes and and a better price. (I know it’s hard to believe.)

    An Bearable Option but be prepared to adapt!

    I cannot figure out how this can possibly be rated as 4 stars! A special category option maybe, but no 4 star quality at all (why is this even claimed?)! I booked a standard double room, only to discover, the rooms are cramped, the bathrooms even more compact (good only if you are 170 cms and weigh 50 kilos or less), the rooms have no coffee/tea provision and not even a box of tissues to be practical ... No room to entertain anyone / or invite a guest in your room, this would be OK if one was allowed to do so on the roof terrace ... However, the restaurant manger went CRAZY simply because we took a bottle of wine (that was ours) to drink up on the terrace ... He was rude to a point of hostility ... Totally uncalled for (given we were paying to stay there and had no other option) and definitely uncivilized and boorish on part of that individual. To further add to the woes, their own wine selection is simply appalling but that is the ONLY choice provided! The Manager at reception was far more congenial (ILHAN) and he deserves both commendation and congratulations for being both understanding and polite ... And the gentleman concierge was delightfully helpful ... These two provided enough reason for one to accept the place!

    Good Hotel for a Very Long Layover!

    My son and I had a 22-hour layover in Istanbul on our way from a business trip in Europe, going back home to East Africa. I am happy I chose Adamar Hotel, for their convenient location to all the main sites (how many can you fit into a few hours???) as well as restaurant for breakfast with an AMAZING view of the city, clean and comfortable room, and VERY nice hot shower and towels (much needed after long flights!). I was grateful that our room had a beautiful view of the Hague Sofia -- my first time seeing it. Everything you could need is within walking distance of this hotel. The front desk staff was very helpful about everything -- they were patient, friendly, and hospitable to my questions. The airport transfer was too expensive -- but it all worked out perfectly, so in the long-run, I consider it worth it since this was my first time ever leaving the airport, it was midnight when we arrived, and I was travelling with my son. The only complaints I have pertain to breakfast: I asked for more scrambled eggs and the waiter said no, even though we arrived within the scheduled time for breakfast, and the coffee machine does not produce good coffee (ironic considering the long tradition of Turkish coffee!). Still, I would stay here again for a quick trip due to location, cleanliness, and friendly front desk staff.

    Great location close to everything. View from rooftop is amazing. Staff is very attentive and helpful to all needs/questions. This was our second stay at this hotel in span of three years and saw consistent service. The family room that we stayed in was on the slightly smaller side but manageable. Only suggestion for them would be to improve the WiFi service, which on one of our days was a bit spotty.
