Hotel is located just opposite to Blue Mosque, I had room with excellent view. Rooms are decorated in old style but nice and decent. As all hotels in Istanbul even this one is having thin walls, so you can hear everything. Breakfest is served on top floor with great view on sea and Sulhanamet area, breakfest selection is good. Be ready that you will be woken up by morning pray if you have window towards mosque.

Room Tip: Number 11 was in the fisrt floor with view to mosque

i rated this 4 stars, basically for the great location this hotel has. If you ever visting istanbul on a short vacation, it is more than great.

Many of the attractions (Blue mosque, topkapi palace, undeground cistene...) are a walking distance from you, and the Tram line is around 100 meters from the hotel.

The hotel itself offers you just the basic necessities (Bed and Breakfast, Bathroom), although the room is not really filled with amenities but the WI-FI connection is very much appreciated.

If your staying for a couple of days in Istanbul i highly recommend the Alzer

This is a small boutique hotel in an outstanding location, situated in a square overlooking the blue mosque. Close to all the wonderfull locations in the old city of Istanbul. Staff are friendly and ready to share their knowledge and experiences of the city, try to get a room at the front of the hotel for the most amazing views of the mosque and the waterfront. Breafast is served upstairs with views that look over to the Bosphrous Sea and the mosque. Food at their restaurant was excellent. Would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: Front rooms have the best views, but there is more noise.

Stayed at this hotel 10 years ago and was impressed then with the friendly service, adequate rooms and fabulous location. Had the pleasure of staying for a week in September and found everything as perfect as we remembered. Staff were as eager as ever to attend to our needs and helped make our holiday stay in Istanbul just perfect. Thoroughly recommend this boutique hotel for those looking for location, reasonable prices and genuine Turkish hospitality.

This hotel was definitely as close to the Blue Mosque as it says it is! It is something else to be able to literally walk out of the hotel's front doors and step into the surrounding area of the mosque. The hotel is clean and the rooms are reasonable sizes. Buffet breakfast is served on the top floor with a breathtaking view.

We stayed at this hotel during Ramadan and unknown to us, when we first booked, the area right in front of the hotel is the place to be! There were street vendors, food stalls and a fun, happy crowd.

The hotel is walking distance to the tram, tour buses, some key sites and nice restaraunts. In general i found the staff to be nice but when we asked them for assistance we usually got recommended 'great' places to eat, tours to go on that also happened to be their friend's business etc. The places didn't always turn out to be that great. The staff also didn't want to help us with booking buses but were more than happy to give us the number of a travel agent who could. We ate at the hotel's restaraunt but found it a bit too pricey for what it was.
