Score from 292 reviews Very good
Amazing helpful staff, perfect location a few metres from islamic art museum blue mosque and 5 minutes walk to Hagia sophia. Wonderful restaurants at your doorstep. Simply perfect.
The location is incredible - right opposite the Blue Mosque, a short stroll to all the places to visit and restaurants and yet the hotel is in a quiet corner of the hippodrome away from the hubbub.Just perfect. The staff were friendly and kind. We had a wonderful stay here.
Very strategic location. Clean and very helpful staff. Centre of tourist attraction. Very near to blue mosque and hagia sophia. We pray everyday in the blue mosque. We would gladly like to stay here again insyaAllah.
it will be more convenient if you could provide electric kettle in the room to make our own cofee and tea
It was a return visit after touring Turkey. Attentive, non-pushy staff. Fantastic buffet breakfast and views of Blue Mosque from breakfast room and our room on 5th floor. Not huge rooms, but nicely decorated and comfortable. Highly recommend this hotel.
no electricity, so I couldn't charge my phone and send email to family. Also elevator wasn't working and lobby boy didn't want to help with bags Ужасный отель!! Я разочарована до глубины души! По прибытии в Стамбул эти люди поселили нас рядом со свалкой, так что всю ночь мы наслаждались неприятным запахом и шумом. Мальчик с ресепшен помог с сумками лишь по просьбе, т.к. Электричества не было и лифт не работал. Интернета и ТВ не было. Никому не советую оказаться в этой помойке! Лучше бы мы остались спать на вокзале, чем в этом отвратительном отеле 0 звезд!!! الفندق غير صالح
So handy to the best sites. Made us a bit lazy as we could so easily return to the hotel for lunch and a short nap before venturing forth for the afternoon! A little respite from the hurly-burly outside.
Perfect place in centre Old City, realy close to main sights, within walking distance. Helpful staff, clean room, good breakfast with really nice view. Room is not too spacious, as the bed is not, but is sufficient. Some facility is older, but quite good, internet connection is useful. Purely and simply very good place for Istanbul visit.
No negatives. You have to allow for loudy müezzin loudspeakers before 6 AM (mosque is really close), but it is a part of sense from Istanbul stay.
Eating the superb breakfast and looking out at the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Mosque and the Bosphorus. Proximity to these Mosques and the Grand Bazaar and the Bosphorus. Friendly and helpful staff in all areas including breakfast room. Room size was not huge, but not a problem, and the view from our 5th floor room of the Blue Mosque was magic!
it has best location. rooms are very clean. breakfast is super. especially the staff. :):):) you can get information for sightseeing.Thanks all. Will recommend everyone. hope to see you again
Proximity to attractions in the old city. Also that it was an old residence, now a quaint hotel. Lovely views of Bosphorus and old city while having breakfast.
The regular calls to prayer took getting used to.
The location is ideal for many of the major sites and attractions. The general ambience of the hotel is comfortable and friendly. Staff kind and attentive. Our second visit and we would certainly go there again
The staff and the location
The hotel is very well situated, just in the Hippodrome, very good to visit the most important places in Istambul by foot. Staff friendly and speaking good english. At breakfast, on the 6th floor restaurant you can see the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The room was correct, clean, they change the towels every day. Good value for money !
Every time we enjoyed the best location.
For breakfast is less fruits service than before when we have stayed.
Location was fantastic, the staff were helpful and friendly and the room comfortable.
Room size small with nowhere to place suitcase. Shower smallish.
Central location Cleanliness. Good breakfast. View from roof top breakfast room Staff. Safe in room.
Poor wifi, lost connections Lest over Breakfast bread served in restaurant at dinner Pricey restaurant due to central location No cleaning under beds.
Situated at the Hippodrome opposite to the Blue Mosque Hotel Alzer is the perfect place to stay for exploring the "Old City" of Istanbul. From the breakfast restaurant on 6th floor you have a perfect view at the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The Hotel also has a nice little outdoor restaurant facing the Hippodrome. The rooms are small, but comfortable with good bed, and with air condition. The staff are speaking well English and very helpful with information about Istanbul. We could not have found a better place to stay, and if we ever go back, we will stay there again. Thank you. Alice & Strange Skriver Denmark June 2014
That we could not stay longer.
We chose this Hotel because of its location and we did not go wrong. Very comfortable stay, staff were nice and helpful. Reasonably priced, as well.
The staff there make my stay a pleasant one,very friendly and concern on any helps needed. The location was great, just opposite the blue mosque and minutes from sultahmet station.
Finding that our first booked room really was very small ! Not having a bath en suite
Friendly receptionists. Kitchen staff and their superb breakfast. Hotel service
Drinking alcohol inside and outside the hotel . Hotel old decoration. Dogs sleeping in front of the hotel.
Location location & location, this hotel is the best located hotel in all Istanbul, just imagine yourself literally facing the blue mosque we were enjoying the view each night from our bed just magic. It is also only 5-10mn walk to the most famous monuments. The buffet breakfast was excellent really excellent bravo chef. The personnel generally were so welcoming & helpful especially mohamed & salah Eddine front desk & the chef. Thank you we will come back & recommend it with pleasure. With a refurbishment this hotel will be a jewlery!
The size of the room, it is very tiny but we were ok with the location overcoming all defects. Another problem was the homeless dogs barking sometimes in the middle of the night.
Good position, in front of the Blue Mosque. The staff speack good English and they are friendly.
poor breackfast, the room 13 is to little and the fire escape does not lead to a safe place, but to a fenced balcony on the first it is dangerous.
the friendliness and helpfulness of staff; the views from the hotel; the situation
