    The hotel was recently renovated and in a central location of the city centre of Istanbul. The staff is very friendly and customer oriented. When we complained about the size of our first room, the next day we have been put in a room with jacuzzi and a view on the old town and the sea. We enjoyed our stay at Kupeli Palace and the warm and friendly atmosphere the professional staff created.

    New renovated hotel and nice furniture.

    Hotel did not provide my confirmed reserved # of beds/room. Rooms are very small. I was asked if I can check out one of my three rooms two hours before posted check out time (12:00pm). Also I was asked if I can pay early (one day before check out). Breakfast food is not covered and some flys were on the food. Internet connection in the room is very poor. I do not recommend this hotel and I am not planning to go back to it.

    good location a bit far from tourist attraction by walking but by car is near

    First when we checked in the reception give us standard room with french bed but we book for Deluxe Double room. We have to walk down and show printout of Booked.net to him then he change the room for us. The Deluxe room is nice but a bit small compare to the picture in website, the jacuzzi in the room not function properly some of the button were broken can't be use and once you flush the toilet water keep coming non stop whole night. It really disturbing I think hotel know about this problem but they not fixing it properly. Also wireless not working in the room I believe I'm not first guest complained about this problem.

    The location is fantastic. You can walk to all the sites in Sultanahmet. The part of the town where the hotel is, is in full transformation. You can find very old houses next to new hotels. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

    The hotel is beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Numan and Izzet made our stay at the Kupeli really fun and comfortable. They are the front desk managers and their knowledge of Istanbul (restaurants, shops, sites, etc) is second to none. Their command of English (Numan spent many years in America) is fantastic and they are extremely accommodating - arranging taxis, airport transfers, sight seeing tours, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kupeli Palace and the beautiful, amazing city of Istanbul. Looking forward to our next trip early next year.

    We left the spa treatment to the last day and wished we had given ourselves more time to have had a couple more treatments.

    We feel that more could be made with the outdoor space.

    Good

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance of all the main attractions in Istanbul.

    More variety in the breakfast menu and small courtyard for having a drink/coffee or snack during the day would improve this hotel.

    Exceptional

    This hotel was great, it was a 15 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar and one of the most famous Turkish baths in Istanbul, a 20 minute walk (if that) to everything else which are all within 5 minutes walk of each other (Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basillica Cistern, Topkapi Palace). Rooms were clean and comfortable, noise was minimal except maybe prayer times, which I'd say is hard to avoid wherever you are. Breakfast was traditional Turkish cuisine, but yummy. Staff were very helpful, showing us the local sights on their maps, ringing the Turkish baths to find out about opening hours and prices, they even spent close to 30 minutes with me helping me work out my online booking for Turkish airlines. I would recommend this hotel to anybody, great stay!

    The airconditioner didn't work very well in our first room, but as soon as we let staff know they move us into the room next door, the airconditioner worked perfectly, the bathroom and bed were bigger and it had a nicer view - win all round!

    The hotel is nice and not far from the center

    The hotel is ok, but there is.no elevator. I Watch out if you book the deluxe room because the jacuzzi is broken. The staff seems friendly, but nobody cared to inform me that the jacuzzi was broken nor they found a different arrangement when I pointed out I had a problem with the room.
