Charming hotel at best location to walk to all the major old Istanbul attractions. Rooms were very clean and nice. The only drawback to our room was the bathroom. it was too small and old. Staff in the hotel were outstanding. They went above and beyond to make the stay more pleasurable. Their breakfast on the rooftop was excellent with variety of cold and hot food options and great view of Sultan Ahmad area. Overall we had great time and would book this hotel if visiting again.

Azade Hotel boasts old-world charm and atmosphere. Location is outstanding with a string of fine restaurants nearby. Rooms are clean, comfortable, large, and quaint with woodwork and screen print panels. Our room of 6 nights had an incredible view of the sea. Prices are reasonable. Azade serves a full, delicious breakfast from 7:30 am - 10:30 am with an extensive variety of selections including coffees, juices, teas. Views from the rooftop enhances the dining experience. Service is outstanding. Staff at the front desk were most accommodating and provided contacts for side trips. Delightful cleaners went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. Friendly Azade staff made our stay that much more enjoyable. Highly recommended for travellers who wish to be in the older, historic section of the city, close to the sea, outdoor restaurants, mosques and bazaars, all within walking distance. Our week at Azade Hotel was a memorable, relaxing experience.
