Very good hotel. Perfect location

The Empire Palace Hotel, is a very pretty environment. It is a completely remodeled building in a very busy tourist area right behind the Archeological Museum and Hagia Sophia. The tram station is meters away. The inside of the hotel has been designed to keep the Ottoman atmosphere, on the sober side, alive and they have succeeded on that. It is very welcomy and also very well kept and clean. The personnel is efficient and kind. The breakfast service is very nice. I've been in other hotels with the so-called 'breakfast included' and most of the time they have been quite disappointing: this one is the real deal. The food is tasty and kept fresh on a not-so-small buffet that is also very well organized. Turkish and continental breakfasts are the options. While enjoying your morning meal, you are kindly greeted by the personnel who is discreetly walking around to attend you. Somebody like Mahnaz, a very polite young lady with a radiant smile. The only downside of this hotel is that, if your room is on the first floor toward the stairs (which was my case), you can hear clearly sounds from the lobby until late at night. It is not helping to get asleep early having a busy day ahead waiting for you. Nevertheless, this hotel is a place in which I would like very much to go back.

Great Staff, Small Rooms, Overpriced

The hotel was quite small, not what I was expecting. slightly overpriced I thought. The hotel staff was very friendly. Small rooms but clean. Good location, near all the tourist areas.
