    Hotel staff was helpful. All of them had good knowledge of languages, they stayed calm even with hard clients. Most important - hotel has very good location!

    Room was a little bit too small and there was no space for laptop. Also no any chair in the room.

    Superb

    The calmness and the good location being close to the main historical places.

    I feel the rug should be replaced and furniture wood renovated or re-painted.

    I can only express my total appreciation of my first tour of Istanbul. I was a wonderful experience and i told all of my friends about it as well as my hotel accommodation. I cannot stress enough how pleased I was with the arrangements that were made. You can be assured i will definitely recommend the Romance Hotel to all my friends and colleague.

    Very good

    the breakfast was very good, both in terms of diversity, quality and availability. The rooms were clean, with enough space and well isolated with double glazing from the outside and sometimes noisy street. The beds were also quite comfortable (the mattress was hard which is good for ones back). The best argunent favouring the hotel is definitely its optimal location. From here you can reach by walk Sultanahmet and also the very central tram station of Sirkeci. The entrance to the Spice Bazar is also at walking distance, just after Sirkesi tram station.

    We booked a shuttle bus to takes us to Sahiba airport and the prices given by the hotel staff in two different occasions was different and increasing over time.As a final remark I would just like to write that although the hotel was very good, the price was a bit exagerated.

    Very good

    Accomodating and helpful staff, room was decent for the price i paid for it. Greatest advantage is the location. They let me keep my bags after i had checked out .. toured all over turkey and had the return flight from istanbul for no charge, 8 days after i had checked out.

    There are no gardens to walk in, pictures put up are misleading. Its on the main street in the bustling sultanhamet. Can get quite noisy at times.

    We found the location excellent an enjoyed the surrounding restaurants. We walked everywhere from the Hotel but could have used trams.

    Very good

    The hotel was in a great location to explore the old city, the staff were very helpful, the breakfast was good and the room was good.

    The hotel advertised certain facilities such as the restaurant on the top of the roof with views over the mosque, however, this is at the sister hotel up the road not the Romance Hotel. I think is is very misleading to advertise facilities if they are not on the premises.

    A lot of staff very friendly. Senior staff member a little stressed as we had a problem with our booking. He was abe to fix it but made us feel stressed.

    Rooms were far too small no room for suitcases we were travelling with friends and all had different size rooms. From very small to ones with balconies and Our other friends had a Suite and we all paid the same, how does that work ?

    Very good

    They made swans with their necks in the shape of a love heart and carefully placed rose petals all over the bed. The breakfast was better than the standard cheese, bread, tomatoes and cucumbers.

    The reception did not have our booking I made online. They weren't very friendly to start with. I had to go into my emails and find the booking to prove I had made the reservation. Fresh squeezed orange juice should be included with the breakfast. They charged 4TL for a glass while everything else was included in the room cost.
