“Great Location!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We blind booked three rooms for our group arrival 9/26. Very pleased with the hotel which was about 3 blocks from the Blue Mosque with plenty of restaurants close by as was the metro line and the city tour bus line. Room were very clean and well maintained. Streets were quiet at night. Yes, there are the normal morning prayer calls. Staff was very helpful and arranged airport shuttle-both ways. Hot breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay here again.

We loved our stay at Albina. The staff were a life saver, they spoke very good English and always had plenty of time to give tourist and navigation advice and made you feel very welcome. The breakfast was great as were the rooms. It is well situated being very close to the major attractions and tram station. Because it was our honeymoon they gave us fondue and champagne..a nice touch.

My wife and I have just returned from our 4 night stay at this welcoming hotel. Situated as it is right in the heart of Sultanahmet everything you could want to see or do in the old city is within easy walking distance. Our comfortable room (which did require a little bit of TLC in parts) was very clean with the nice touch of a complimentary welcoming bottle of wine to enjoy on the fabulous terrace watching the sunset and enjoying the views of the Blue mosque just a stones throw away in one direction and a view of the islands out in the Sea of Marmara on the other. Combine this with the friendly, efficient staff and the sumptuous breakfast on offer, it all made our Istanbul break all the more enjoyable. I already have recommended it to friends as offering good value and prime location.

The location of this hotel is great...in the heart of the old city. The Blue Mosque and the harbor are both in view from the roof of the hotel. It's easy to walk to many sights and get the tram for others. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms very adequate.

Very nice little Hotel in the middle of the Old City.
Good and friendly service. Wifi is fine. TV system has lots of (as usual not so interesting) channels and a bit difficult to find your French or English news. But you'll find out finally.
Walls of the rooms cloud be a bit thicker. No problem if other customers control "their decibels"!
Goof offer on breakfast.
All in all a good place to stay for a few days.
We say thanks to both staff and management. Job well done.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balcony but this is not really necessary. We stayed at second floor and room (201...

I stayed for 6 nights at Albinas Old City Hotel. It's my thirty time in Istanbul and the first one I stayed at Sultanahmet. It's was Ramadan. I was Afraid about it but it's really a beautiful time to see Istanbul.
We booked our airport transfer direct with the hotel and it was very good. We payed 60,00 euros for five persons round trip from and to Atartuk Airport.
The welcome recepcion was wonderful. All staff in this hotel is so friendly. This is the best thing that Albinas Hotel has to offer. We feel like home with friends.
The location is amazing. Only 10 minutes walking to Blue Mosque. I saw the beautiful Blue Mosque from my window.
The hotel decoration is nice. It's clean too. There's a roof with wonderful views.
The room is small. The bed is small. There's good and complimentary wifi in all hotel. There's amenities for cofee and tea in the rooms. Theres AC, fridge,safe and TV.The bathroom is good size. The towels and sheets are not so good quality, but is ok.
The breakfast is variety but not so quality. The juices was terrible. There's option to pay extra 2,00euros for natural orange juice. But it's ok too.
In our fourth day it was my wife's birthday and we were surprised with one birthday cake for her. Thank you for all staff.
So, it's a good hotel in one very nice area with friendly staff. The only problem is the bedroom size and the breakfast quality.

Room Tip: I stayed in the standart room, number 304, and it was small butl clean, complimentary wifi, safe,fr...
