Historical Traveller Reviews of Ada Hotel Istanbul

Simply the best

from mickey65
We stayed at the Ada hotel becuase it was recommended on Trip advisor. The hotel is beautiful, the room was huge we had a Juccuzi bath in the room. The location was great, just a short walk to the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia and a short tram ride anywhere else. The manager is so helpful he will organise not only your room breakfast and luggage, but your day trips, your evenings entertainment, your transfers and your laundry. The view from the room across the sea was beautiful with a ruin of old Istanbul just outside your window. Do not hesitate to book at this wonderful hotel.

Tremendous Hotel

from flutus
Let me first say that I am not the type to write hotel reviews.

We stayed at this boutique hotel for a very short post-cruise visit in Istanbul. The hotel proprietors, both retired professors, arranged to have us picked up at 7:00am at the port, dropped off at the hotel, and then had us picked us again at midnight the same day for a transfer to Sabiha Gocken airport for a 3:00 am flight the next morning.

After arriving at 7:15am, they showed us to our room, which was hugh and impeccably clean (my wife the clean freak gave it her stamp of approval) , and then offered to also let us use a second bathroom in another adjoining room as we were a party of 4.

The hotel is on a back street approximately 5 minutes walking from the Blue Mosque and 10 minutes from the the Grand Bazaar.

After dinner, they invited us up to his rooftop terrace, and brought out complimentary fruit and juices for us. The views of Istanbul were stunning.

I am almost 50, have traveled across the world, have stayed in many large and small hotels, and can honestly say that this was one of my best hotel experiences ever.

I highly recomment hhis hotel.

Fabulous New Hotel in Istanbul

from Mochismom
I recently had the pleasure of staying in the Ada Hotel in Istanbul. This is a small family-run boutique type of hotel and while I was there they were still putting the finishing touches on. Everything was brand spanking new. The rooms are tastefully and thoughtfully appointed with a blend of modern meets traditional Turkish design elements. Each room has a hairdryer, mini-frig, and tea/coffee service. Initially, the excellent breakfast was served in the lobby area. But on my last day the rooftop terrace was finished and I was honored to be the very first guest to have breakfast on the terrace with it's drop-dead gorgeous view of the Sea of Marmara and the Sokullu Mosque. This is approximately the same (although more expansive) view you will get when you reserve a room with an ocean view and jacuzzi which I heartily recommend. Nothing better after a long day of sightseeing than sitting in your jacuzzi with a glass of wine and drinking in your fabulous view.

The really special thing about the Ada is the sense of personal hospitality from the hands-on owner, Dr. Dogan Sumengen and his wife Havva, who live on the premises. They were always cheerful and helpful with whatever I needed. Dr. Sumengen even went so far as to accompany me to the UPS office to help me ship back some of my holiday purchases. You won't get that at the other hotels!

Delightful Istanbul pied-a-terre

from caseypaul
Workers were still completing some exterior pavement work on the outside of this hotel when we arrived. We were greeted in the compact reception area by the proprietor, Dr Dogan, and his wife and promptly shown to our rooms. There were four of us and we each had a single room. Though the room rates were all the same €69/night, the standard of the rooms varied enormously. One had a jacuzzi, all but one had huge double beds, the one on the ground floor was pokey with a small bed ... definitely the short straw!! It's worth checking out the rooms before you settle on the the one you are allocated. The lift was fully operational whilst we were there.

Breakfast was served on the roof terrace of a nearby hotel. Whilst the quality of the food on offer was not great, there was reasonable variety and the views from the roof terrace are wonderful.

The hotel is located opposite a popular mosque and if you are likely to have your slumber interrupted by the Muslim call-to-prayer at sunrise, I would advise the use of earplugs.

The hotel whilst in the heart of Sultanahmet, is tucked away from the madding crowds on a delightful quiet side street. The front facing rooms above the ground floor have beautiful views of the sea of Marmaris and the mosque referred to above.

This is a lovely family-run hotel. It's clean, friendly and down to earth and has no pretentions to be other than this. I think that refering to it as a boutique hotel gives altogether the wrong impression and may lead guests seeking this to be disappointed.

Ada Hotel Istanbul is a wonderful boutique hotel with outstanding hospitality

from Accidental_Pilgrams
The owners were wonderful hosts starting with a very good breakfast every morning while overlooking the Blue Mosque on their roof top breakfast nook. (Breakfast was 3 short blocks to another property.) The owners provided directions, tips on Turkish customs, best shopping areas, and even giving us two hand embroidered tablecloths that we were admiring. The Ada Hotel Istanbul is walking distance from the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia Museum, the Grand Bazaar, and the Topkapi Palace. The hotel's bottom two floors are newly opened while the upper floors are still under construction. For the price, location and most importantly the hospitality, it was our best stay in Turkey.

absolutely magnificent

from ornix
Me & my friend just came back from Istanbul weeks ago. We had stayed at ADA hotel and satisfied with the quality hospitality and full attendance by the owner of the hotel Mr & Mrs Dr Dogan. Restaurant are great, located on the Roof Top where over seeing Blue Mosque and Marmara sea view was fantistic. This hotel located many attraction places and all within walking distance, for example Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Ayasofaya and many more, the most place that I love so much is Grand Bazaar. ADA hotel also arrange saightseeing tours around Istanbul and not to missed BELLE DANCE.
Overall I would say, ADA hotel is the best hotel to stay. If have chance will come to TURKEY again !

Not a bad choice

from terf
The Ada is a very clean, new hotel in a great location. It straddles the line between guesthouse and hotel, and while isn't anything to gush about it is a perfectly adequate choice while staying in Istanbul.
The rooms have all been newly decorated and have jacuzzi baths which seem good in theory but in practice are quite small and if its hot may not seem like a great idea. As previous reviewers have pointed out there are building works happening not only within the hotel itself but right next door, so don't be surprised to hear a lot of drilling and banging if you find yourself in your room during the day - however since most visitors are out and about you may not notice them.
Also the front door is locked 24 hours a day, and you have to ring the bell and wait for someone to answer. This seemed like an inconvenience especially if you want to have a late night out and the owners have to stay up specifically for you. However, the elderly gentleman who runs the place is extremely helpful and always at hand if you ever have any queries or need assistance.
Overall I think the place is absolutely fine, I think the challenge for the Ada will be to see how it deals with its first opening during peak season - when we were there we had to share the tiny but impressively positioned breakfast room with its sister hotel which also seemed fully booked - this meant queues for tables at breakfast in the morning.
We got a good room rate for our stay, but I wouldn't pay anything like 100 euros a night for a stay - especially since there are lots of choices around.

Never again!

from swissmodern
I booked a 'suite' in this hotel after reviews I read here. I feel I went to a different place altogether...

They had organised for a car to pick us up at the airport: overpriced, you have to wait ages till you actually depart in a derelict car; say no, there's lots of cabs outside and they are all metered.
We arrived at 10.30pm, there is no reception as such, we walked into a space where father, daughter and the cat sat. You don't get a key for the hotel front door and they had no key for our room, so had to walk the 4 flights of stairs with us. Very romantic. The lift is still being installed. And the workers start at 8.30am, even on Saturday morning, as we discovered...We got woken up much against our will and no way could we go back to sleep.
We had no hot water in the shower or the jacuzzi bath which sat in the middle of our room, bizzarely. We were assured the water was working so it must have been us not having enough brain cells to turm it the right way I guess...!
The breakfast is in another hotel 5 mins away. The room is small and shabby. It was full when we got there, had to share someone's table. The doors of the cabinet on top of which the buffet was fell on my feet... Lots more people arrived and had to wait for a free table in cramped conditions.
Oh yes, do not take their advice for a fish restaurant. They pick you up & bring you back, but it is a tourist trap to avoid at all cost!!!
We checked out after one night, and went to the Moevenpick hotel, an excellent design 5* at only 20% more than the Ada.
Management Response from AdaHotelIstanbul
Dear Sir/Madame

We would like to respond to the review of our hotel by "swissmodern" UK entitled "Never

The first morning of her stay she complained that there was no hot water. We checked her room and the hot water was working fine. But she was angry and wanted to go to another hotel. We discounted the price of the room and also did not charge her
for the airport transfer which she now says was "overpriced".

Our hotel is brand new and at the time of her stay we did not have our own terrace finished so we sent guests to our other hotel just one minutes walk away so they could enjoy the view. It was Easter and both hotels were full so it may have been crowded there.Since then we have finished our own beautiful terrace and breakfast
will be served there now.

Also because we were a new hotel we were just having the elevator installed which took longer than expected. Of course we apologized and carried her luggage upstairs for her and her spouse. The elevator has been fully functional for some time now.

When they arrived at our hotel it was very late and she asked us where they could go to eat. We recommended a very good fish restaurant in the Kumkapi district. The restaurant sent a car to pick them up. We send many guests to this restaurant and they really enjoy it. I learned later that once this couple arrived at the restaurant they decided they wanted to eat somewhere else.

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify the issues raised by "swissmodern"

Best wishes

Ada - Decent mid-range Hotel

from MattSharpe
The Ada Hotel is an perfectly adequate mid-range property in the heart of Sultanahmet.

The best thing about the property is its location, steps away from the Hippodrome and the Blue Mosque, with easy access to Divan Yolu and surrounds.

The hotel itself is clean and modern, and being new the fittings remain in a good state. Whilst we were there however, there was ongoing constuction within and next door to the hotel, which we found could be a little noisy and dusty.

The breakfast room was still under construction, so we had to walk over to a nearby hotel a few minutes away each morning. This breakfast here was standard buffet fare, but the views from here over the hippodrome were really special.

The bedroom was relatively spacious, and contained a spa bath which was a nice touch, although it would be nicer if you could see out of the window from there.

The front rooms have views over the local area and down to the Marmara Sea, and there is a small attractive mosque immediately in front of the building (if you don't mind being awoken by the Muezzin).

The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly the older man who ran the place, although we did find that it sometimes felt as if you were staying with your grandparents - particularly becuase we did not get a key to the front door, so he had to open the door every time we wanted to leave or come back to the hotel.

Overall, if you can get a deal on this (we got 4 nights for the price of 3) it is worth considering, but ensure you get a room with a view. Once the construction is complete this would also be a better option.

The Ada Hotel is a great choice

from MissFiona
The Ada is a lovely little hotel. The rooms are large, sunny, and immaculate. The decor is tastefully modern with traditional Turkish touches. The views of the Marmara Sea and nearby mosque are beautiful. Breakfast is currently served on the roof terrace of a nearby hotel (owned by the same family), where the view of the Blue Mosque and Haya Sofia is spectacular. The owner (Dogan) and his family are very helpful, responsive, and kind. For example, I had to leave at 6:00am to catch my return flight, and the owner personally got up to make me breakfast before I left. The hotel is in the final stages of completion (elevators and roof terrace are not ready yet), but this interfered very little with my stay. When the work is all done, it will be hard to find a nicer place to stay in the Sultanahmet district at this price. Oh, and did I mention the jacuzzi in each room? Wow.

Top Local Tips for Istanbul

Asia side We went to the Asia side for a morning and really didn't find anything. I wouldn't recommend going over there. But because we had 6 days in Istanbul we were able to go to some of the areas on the european side that weren't "sights". Ortokoy was great at night. Taksim was a wonderful neighborhood to walk through also.

Tokapi Palace The queues for the treasury are enormous so make sure you head there first and line up.

Taxis take advantage of foreign tourists Taxis drivers didn't always use their meters to calculate fares and then ask for an outrageous price when dropping off. Make sure the meter is used or negotiate your fare before getting into the taxis.
