Reviewed 12 October 2012

What a find! The only hotel located on the Hippodrome opposite the Blue Mosque. Rooms are small but clean. The staff made us feel like family. Nothing was too much trouble. We had stayed in 5 star hotels in other cities but I'd take this little boutique hotel any day.

In the heart of the old town, close to every means of transport, though quite and safe. Clean rooms, great view from the roof garden watching the ships entering Bosporus while taking breakfast. I would also suggest you go there and drink a cofee after visiting the Sultanahmet Camii.

The Alzer's location can't be beat. It's right across the Hippodrome from the Blue Mosque, a short walk from Hagia Sofya, and near to lots of other sites and restaurants. Besides that, the hotel is nothing special. We had a small double room and found the furniture dated and chipped and the bathroom in need of renovation - the tiles were pink and cracked. It also boasted a weird white feather and crystal pendant chandelier and matching beside lamps. Despite the decor, the room was clean, the air conditioning worked well, and the complimentary breakfast was good. If they'd update the furnishings, it'd be a great hotel.

We booked the hotel room based on the location. It is right on the Hippodrome in the Sultanahmet area. Great for walking to the sites and having a home base in a convenient location. The staff were also very cordial and welcoming. Another huge plus was the top floor view of the Blue Mosque. We would often go up at night to enjoy the view while sipping wine we purchased at a nearby shop.
The room that we stayed in was a tight. There really is no room to sit and relax in the room so if you enjoy doing that, pick another hotel. We ended up relaxing on the top level. The only realy bad thing about the hotel was that the walls were thin and if you are a light sleeper, this may cause problems.
Overall, I thought the hotel was a good value due to it's location and pricing.
Things I wish I knew: When timing travel out of the city, we gave ourselves three hours since we were leaving the hotel at 8 AM. We thought we would hit traffic. We traveled against traffic when leaving and were at the airport very early. Local connections are very easy. There is a seperate domestic terminal at the Attaturk airport.

The Hotel is right on the Hippodrome directly across from the Blue Mosque and within stones through of the Aya Sofia and the Topkapi Palace. The rooms are comfortable, the showers excellent and the staff wonderful and friendly. The breakfasts are on the top floor with a fabulous view. Everyone is very accomodating and makes you feel at home. An excellent choice
