    The best hotel in Town :)
    I stayed at Orka Royal Hotel In Istanbul for my honeymoon for 10 days. I have to say that the services is fantastic especially the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is perfect and clean and the spa, swimming pool and sauna is amazing. The staff are like a family and very very welcoming. The breakfast is amazing it has many choices and it runs for a very good time. The hotel is situated in the perfect area quite but close to all the main places. I would like to say that Emrullah who is the bell boy at the hotel has been an absolute amazing person to me and my wife and he has looked after us as his own family he made sure we were okay at all times and and guided us to all the best places in Istanbul. He is amazing at his job and has been superb. Sevcan who is the receptionist is the most amazing receptionist I have come across from the many countries I have visited she assisted us at every step she made us feel like the hotel was our own home. She made sure we weren't being ripped of with tour prices and helped us booked the best and cheapest tours she spoke very good English which helped a lot.

    Bad customer service
    We were disappointed that the hotel did not have room for us on our first night despite us booking and paying weeks in advance, instead we were sent to a different hotel and ask to return the following day. This was really inconvenient and meant we spent the first day of our holiday moving hotels/waiting for rooms which is not ideal. However, it was the attitude of the staff which made this a bad experience, we didn't recieve an apology, they refused to acknowledge that this was inconvenient or be clear about when we may have a room and repeatedly spoke to us like it was our fault which was all very fustrating when we just wanted a hotel room as paid for and to start our holiday.

    Great for site seeing
    Great staff and great location Breakfast was ok. The hotel should re you that there is building works around the hotel. Which causes some noise issues. The hotel staff moved us so that was great. Pool is small and the deck could do with some tic sk for a room at the back of the hotel sixth floor !

    Good 6,0
    The only good thing is the location of the hotel. Rooms are quite small. Roof terrace closes 10pm. You’re not allowed in swimming pool without head covering. And even upon request for double bed wasn’t provided with one. Booked two rooms and paid nearly £380 each, so was definitely expecting a better service.

    Very Helpful Staff
    Very friendly and helpful staff.The receptionist Murat was very helpful and kind.He took good care of us.Very nice guy.Rooms are small but the location of the hotel is very good.All the attractions in Istanbul are near from the hotel. Steam,Sauna,Pool everything was spot on.Beautiful views from the rooftop. If someone is staying in the hotel please make sure to bring your own iron as they had difficulty providing the iron in the hotel but Murat helped us and took good care of all the issues. Definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again.

    Holiday trip to Istanbul
    My wife and I were in Istanbul for two days before flying down to Dalaman and having stayed in the Orka Royal before, we knew it was comfortable, great customer service and central for wandering around Sultanahmet area. We were welcomed at reception and as previous guests they gave us the royale suite. Loads of room. The breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice and all fresh. We'll definitely stay in the Orka Royale again as it's great value and located perfectly
