Loved the location, view from the 4th floor breakfast area and the 5th floor lounge areas are hard to beat with view of the city and Bosphorus. The room was very clean and well appointed. Our sea view room had a small standing balcony with a great view.

Exceptional Hotel
I stayed at The Magnaura Palace hotel during the Coronaviras pandemic. The hotel's hygiene standards were exceptional in all areas. The breakfast room and terrace offer million dollar views of the Bospheros and the Anatolian side of Istanbul. The location is minutes from Sulthanahmet Square and within walking distance to the Grand Bazaar and the Metro/Tram. The immediate neighborhood offers a wide choice of restaurants and shops. After taking a month driving around Turkey I happily returned to spend several more weeks. The staff is exceptional and professional; most being fluent in English which was most welcome. As a career hotelier who has traveled extensively, I highly recommend The Magnaura Palace. Many thanks to Mehmet and his staff.
