Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is old and not maintained. The entire building has a horrid old smell. The bedding and towels are also very old, grey color. The bedding disnt feel like cotton. The soap smells of a cheap parfume. The breakfast was like a joke. One boiled and broked cold egg. I was told the breakfast will be same every day. I cheked in in the hotel and ch3cked out in 45 min.

ppsitive and negative about armada hotel istanbul
the hotel is far from main attractions of blue mosque . the breakfast was same everyday so after the first day you dont want it again. waiters were very rude. if you have small children do not stay there as way to blue mosque is uphill and cobbled so push chairs will not work. worst thing for us was its distance and breakfast. best thing was cleanliness
