Only stayed a few nights, but level of service and comfort was exceptional. Offered me drinks, gave directions, special offers, advice, warm at every moment. No charge when I had to leave late. Literally prepared to do whatever they could to make my stay go right. Beautiful couple run the hotel and great support staff as well. For the budget...

If you are looking for a swanky, posh hotel look elsewhere, and be prepared to pay more money. The Aleph is an older style hotel that is bit by bit upgrading and making solid improvements. We booked the Aleph though Airbnb, initial booking problems all sorted out by staff quickly and efficiently. Room good, great shower and very comfortable bed,...

This hotel has a great location and lots of promise. The owners promise to change decor and upgrade rooms...all in need. We found this place to be grotty, but the location and view from the roof hooked us. The breakfast totally sucked. But, the front desk staff was good and the middle-of-the-night assistance with an airport taxi that was late...

I believe we do know that the "renovation" is a "progress" which needs income for small properties like this one you stayed over only about 20 Euros in the center of this historical city like many people did with no complain and without sucking all the coffee just for it's free. In Istanbul, staying in Aleph is going to cost...

The rooms were on the small side. The bathrooms don't have ventilation and can get smelly and humid, so you need to leave the door open. The AC was sketchy. WiFi was good enough. No elevator! Rooms were clean, tidy, and up to date. The staff was not at the reception half of the time. I called and asked if...

Dear Sir / Madam You are completely right about the technical problems like shower humidity and the air-conditioner. And the only excuse of ours is we just need a little more time to get rid of technical & financial difficulties. We'll soon fix them all and serve way better. About the reception and the TV channels: I already shared your...

My boyfriend and I were booked at this hotel for four nights. When we arrived at the hotel at around 1:30 A.M.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A boutique hotel located in center of the Historical Center of Istanbul. We try our best to give our guests a decent service for both accomodation and/or breakfast on the terrace with a nice view of Marmara Sea. In each room has - Air-conditioning - Cable tv with more than 400 channels - A refrigerator and room service for 24 hours. This hotel is very close to The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia Museum (about 5-10 mins by walking) and almost in the center of the best restaurants and bars; historical places that could be said 'countless'. To visit other beauties on other districts of Istanbul like Kadikoy, Taksim, Beyoglu, Besiktas, Ortakoy, The Bosphorus itself, The Golden Horn, Grand Bazaar and Egytp Bazaar, Pierre Loti, etc., the public transportation is quite easy compared to other neighbourhood in this city. We do help our guests about the places they intend to visit, give hints and clues for those places, help for any kind of transfer you prefer or help you how to use the public transportation units. And we appreciate 'all' feedback to improve our hospitality and services. ... more   less
