Very friendly staff, clean and free breakfast was amazing. The hotel location is marvellous close to most tourist attractions such as the blue mosque is within 3 minutes walk. Close to grand bazaar and many restaurants. Would definitely go back if I visit Istanbul.

This hotel was fabulous. The location was amazing! Seriously I loved how close it was to everything in old town. It was perfect. The morning breakfast was awesome! Even a omelet station! They have a spa we didn't use and a nice outdoor pool. It was very peaceful here. I liked my room. I loved hearing the call to prayer. I looked up the times that it would go off and tried to be out in the town when it did. That was our favorite part of the trip. We did all the touristy things. I wasn't afraid of terrorism just of the carpet salesmen. Really nice men hang around in old town and start up a friendly conversation and are very nice then they ask you to just come and take a look at their carpet store. They are so polite and friendly you agree. However we got stopped many times, we tried not to be rude but it kind of got annoying. So we tried not to talk to too many people.
Hotel is well-located to many key areas of Sultanahmet. We didn't receive any wifi in our original room so were kindly upgraded by the manager. However, a few small details were commonly missed out, such as no bath robes some days but available on other days, and one day we came back to notice the sheets were still the same one from the day before.
"The hotel is very great , I loved the room design "
The hotel rooms are nice deign , stuff is amazing they are the best factor in this hotel all are very nice , helpful , smiling , really they make my stay great
Resturant are nice too , the only need is more 5 stars hotels facilities, but over all you can avoid that due to the great stuff really they didn't let you feel there are something missing
The location is great I the heart of historical area ,
Thanks a lot for the hotel manager
If I had to describe this place, I would not call it a hotel, but an extravagant B&B, with friendly staff, beautiful artwork and a relaxing setting. It is located about 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and 10 mins from Topkapi Palace. A great place to start your experience of Istanbul.
Only criticism was the breakfast, which was a little uninspiring; however it was filling!
All in all, recommended.
The Aristocrat Hotel is in a great location if you want to see the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, (easy walk to both), and the popular tourist sights of Istanbul. The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Sharif el Sharif, the manager. The rooms are small but clean and nicely furnished, nice bathroom, not really a lobby(but you don't need one), and easy walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
Albinas hotel is in Sultanahmet zone of Istanbul where many things exist like shopping, restaurants,coffee shops, touristic places...
Close to everything such public transportation stations...
Has a terrace with sea view...
I stayed at the hotel for 5 days and had a great time. The staff was friendly and rooms were clean. Decent breakfast is served in the morning from 8-10AM. Cleaners would come around 1 and clean the room within 5 minutes. The counter staff was helpful and would guide you about how to get to places, what to see in the city and anything you need information about. The hotel was generally peaceful and quiet during the day and the night, however some customers might make sound when walking up and down the stairs. Nothing that would bother you too much.
The best thing about this hotel is its location. Although it is located in a narrow street, it is conveniently located within 10 minutes walk to city's most important historical locations. This includes Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Archeological Museum. You can also go to the seaside if you want to go for walk, that is also 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Due to its ideal location you don't have to take a taxi or even the tram to reach city's important monuments. Even the grand bazaar is 30 minutes walk away.
If you don't feel like going out you can order pizza, kebabs and a few other things in the room. The room service menu isn't cheap but isn't expensive either.
