I absolutely loved my stay at the Royan Hagia Sophia Istanbul. The room was modern and clean; I loved the decor throughout the hotel (chic imperial). The lounge area was very peaceful if you wanted to take a break, get some work done or even have your morning coffee. The staff were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and went out of their way to give us advice, recommendations and help us get around. The location was superb - right by all the main attractions and very walkable. There are amazing restaurants close by with tons of options. We booked the standard room - I will say, it was a bit tight with our two large suitcases and 1 carry on, but we managed the space by stacking the suitcases in 1 corner. Travel light or upgrade to the slightly bigger room if you happen to be staying for a longer time; however, the price point, location and accommodations are well worth the visit.
