Very good for friends trip to istanbul. About the night clubs around, it's not as noisy as people are telling in the other reviews. We slept very well. The service is nice too. The best thing about it is that it have an awsome location very close to the tram station and to monuments like the blue mosque and topkapi... More

I have stayed in this hotel for 7 nights and find some of complaints completely untrue. The first good point was its close distance to the Aksaray tram station. It is about 5-7 minutes walk and then you can go wherever in Istanbul by public transportation. The location of the hotel is not in a prestigious section of Istanbul so... More

The biggest advantage of the Alhan Hotel is its price. And that would be all. The rooms are extremely small. Double bad is all what can be in the room. You cannot even open your suitcase properly. It quite clean, towels and sheets are changed. However, 2 people in this tiny double room is much to many. The restaurant is... More

they claimed to be a 3 star hotel. it is definitely not. funny that it looks nothing like the pictures on the websites. it was like living in a shoebox and sleeping on a hard bed. you'd better be bringing along earplugs because the discotheque blares out music all night till 7ish am. every single night we were there (we...

We booked a mystery hotel in Istanbul and ended up at Alahan. For the price we payed it was an OK hotel. Not very good but it does the trick. Tramway Station is very close which makes it easy to travel from and to Beyoglu and Sultanahmet. Breakfast en room were alright. You do have quite al lot of noise... More
