The Megara Palace is a small and friendly budget hotel, which I have returned to over a number of years. It’s location in Sultanamet is very central for a number of the main Old City attractions. We were lucky to occupy a 3rd storey room with balcony enabling views of the busy Marmara Sea frequented by commercial vessels from all over the world. Whilst breakfast is acceptable the views from the 4th floor dining room offer the same vista. A thriving and varied number of Kurdish run restaurants can be accessed in the street nearby. Worth a visit.

Megara Palace is a cozy and homey place to stay. The check in was smooth and welcoming. I was offered a choice of rooms as I had concerns about climbing the stairs. The property is well-maintained and kept clean. The breakfast room was on the roof top so a bit difficult to climb the 3 flights of stairs to get to every morning, but being able to look out on the sea was worth it. The only recommendation I have is that the hotel should provide tea/coffee service in the rooms, or at least have tea/coffee available in the lobby. It is very difficult as there is no room service or restaurant facilities at the property, when a cup of tea or coffee is needed at night or during the day. Yes, there are a lot of restaurants nearby but one does not always want to walk out at night for a cup of tea. It would be such a welcome gesture to be able to have that in the room. I must admit that the receptionist offered me a cup of hot water when I needed. I had to have my own tea or coffee. However by the time I got into my room to make the coffee the water was no longer hot. The hotel, despite this, is very well situated, walking distance to everything. I would definitely recommend Megara Palace to anyone.

In proximity to major cultural highlights

This small cosy hotel is very close to a number of major historical cultural sites, including the famous Blue Mosque and A Sophia. Amazing! The rooms are comfortable and pleasantly decorated, a number on the top floor with balcony.The top floor breakfast room with some outside balcony seating has open views of the Sea of Marmara. Buffet breakfast. A host of eateries 25 yards below the hotel for whole length of street 1st right. All staff very helpful and a number of languages spoken.
