Reviewed 18 February 2012

Ada hotel is a little gem, in the heart of Sultinahmet. Its location is ideal to walk to all the main attractions of the city: minutes away from the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Market, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Agia Sofia, etc. and only 20 minutes away from Attaturk AIrport.
It is very clean, smoke-free, modern and is equipped with an elevator. There is a computer in the lobby reserved for guests, as well as free Wi-Fi. A printer is also available for boarding passes.

We had arranged for the hotel to have us picked up at the airport. While the greeter was there, the driver did not arrive until approximately 15 minutes later. We were tired after a full day of travelling and wondered if it was a sign of things to come. At the hotel, the host and hostess first appeared reserved, but it did not take us long to discover how helpful they were and genuinely interested in our comfort.
Our hostess checked us in and gave us some information about the city and the hotel as well as a tour of our room. We had reserved a standard room, but the hotel had upgraded us to a seaview room, with a jacuzzi tub. Although the room was smaller than we expected, it had all the conveniencess one could ask for: a phone with direct international access, in room safe, flat screen TV, real wine glasses, tea/coffee making facilities with real cups, etc. The linen was of good quality, with nice, plush towels. The bathroom was modern with a great shower, and very clean.

The breakfast is buffet-style and taken up on the 5th floor terrasse (which is winterized!), with a beautiful view of the Marmara Sea and the cuppola of the "little mosque". It is plentiful and delicious, with a large enough selection that even after a four-night stay we were not bored with the food. We were even able to help ourselves to some juice, cereals, yogurt, etc. before our 7:00 am departure on our last day. The two young ladies who help with the preparation and service are very friendly and helpful, without hovering.

If we had to say something negative, it would be that the walls are not very soundproof - as is usually the case with most small hotels - but given the type of clientele at the Ada, that is really not a problem.
Final word: would we stay there again? Definitely!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front offer a seaview.

We stayed there a couple of weeks ago and had a deluxe suite with a sea view, it had a hot tub and the shower had a steam facility, the room was very clean. The owners were very helpful and the location was very close to the main sights but the hotel was in a quiet street. The breakfast was good with a mix of Turkish and European foods. I'd recommend this hotel highly!

Room Tip: Try and get a sea view room.

Each room includes a Jacuzzi with a panoramic view of Marmara sea (satisfying for sea-view room lovers like me) and Sokullu Mosque. Wonderful location in the old town, delicious breakfast served at the terrace with amazing view, everything in this hotel has been selected from the best of its kind, for example handmade kilims (some kind of carpets), and very friendly manager, he even gave us a free shuttle transfer to airport and a nice small bag as farewell gift. WiFi network is free of charge, also there is a computer available in the lobby. the room was big enough for me, but do not expect to see a big hotel at all. The minibar prices are the same as outside. If you are looking for somewhere as comfortable as your home, I would recommend this hotel 100 percent!

I should admit that it's hard to describe how i feel when i stayed in this lovely hotel. I stayed in this hotel with good friend of mine who found this hotel from great reviews in tripadvisor. Staying for 5 nights in this winter, it was very wonderful experience. The room is so clean. So warm (in term of feeling), comfortable, i feel just totally in love when staying in the first night in this hotel. What most is the feeling just like in home. The people, especially the owners are very friendly, very helpful and very kind couple. Make me really feel just like in a big family. Love it!

In term of the location, this hotel is place to famous area like Blue Mosque, Marmara sea etc. And you can enjoy the stunning view just right from the window. From the breakfast room. So amazing. I can enjoy myself just sit there for hours to admiring the view of Marmara sea, especially at sunset.

I can write on and on about this hotel. I know it sounds too much. But i just say that anyone should try it and have the experience ilke everyone did in this hotel. I would really recommend this hotel and would love to this hotel next time in Istanbul.
