    Istanbul Luxury

    A really cute, friendly hotel within 5 minutes walking of Topkapi Palace and 10 minutes to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia - a super central, but quiet, location. Fabulous room, yummy breakfast, lovely staff and a steam/sauna/hammam for all guests. I booked an aromatherapy massage with Mr Mehmet which was just super. I will definitely stay here again and look forward to returning to Istanbul in the future.

    My romance holiday

    We booked two rooms.There were five of us. One room was deluxe and the other was premium suite. Both rooms and their bathrooms were very clean. The beds and the pillows were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was great all the way. It is also right next to gulhane tramway station which made it very convenient. Also its location is great because it is a quiet area but at the same time close to everything you need in terms of great restaurants, shops, laundry shop, cafes, the grand bazar,and many others. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

    The absolute best hotel I have every experienced!

    Really, the best hotel I can imagine! Before even booking, they answered every email in detail. Upon arrival, our shuttle driver was easy to find inside the airport, so no worries about stepping into to a foreign land to find a taxi. We were warmly greeted by Tayfun (hoping I have the names correct!) at the front desk.He offered us tasty Turkish delights and hot tea. Without having to ask, he answered most of our questions and helped us to plan our first couple of days. Then, we went to the room. OMG! The pictures are indeed accurate! I have never seen such beauty in a hotel. The bellman showed us the amenities in the room (Grand Suite). The hotel clearly invested in the beds. It was better than my Sleep Number at home! Rahime made sure we had a tasty, very ample, fresh breakfast every day. The pool is beautiful and the water is warm. Sadly, we had to leave one day early as borders were closing during the start of the Corona crisis. Zümre with guest relations so kindly called airlines for us when we mentioned the situation. She followed up every day as she met us at breakfast to be sure that we were ok and could get home safely. They even agreed to refund the last night, no problem. Gönül kept our room fresh and clean. The neighborhood is great, lots to do, but quiet at night and very safe. The tram is only a short walk away. I can’t say enough good about the Romance Hotel! We WILL be back!
