Father and son team that run this place are fantastic. It's super clean and comfortable, with a fantastic rooftop terrace with beautiful views of nearby mosques...and the waterfront. When we were there, there was a birds' nest on the far side of the roof with adorable babies we could watch. Place is only a short, authentic (as opposed to touristy)... More

Very helpful staff, bigger rooms than most places, great amenities with kitchen and ideal location. Only negative is there is no lift. So it might be a little difficult if you have joint problems. Overall good experience and would recommend.

We spent a great week in this hotel! Istanbul is a very huge city extended to Asian and European part, thus this central located Hotel is a perfect place for tourist. It is very easy to reach all famous sightseeings: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Erebatan Sarnichi and Topkapi Palace are in the pedestrian accessibility!))) Another nice complement to this hotel... More

Our family of 6 [2 adults and 4 Kids] stayed at the A'la House apartments in Oct 2013. The place is suitable for young children and the apartment was more spacious than we expected. The people who run the apartments are very friendly and made us very welcome indeed. They also offered us valuable travel advice within Istanbul. This hotel... More

Not trivial to find a quiet place ti sleep in Sultanahmet. If a good night sleep downtown in a 3 star level hotel is what you are looking for, look no further. Rooms are (very) sunny, spacious and well equipped (Kitchen, Air conditioning, TV, Wifi, comfy Mattresses, electrical sockets, breakfast table, etc). Excellent Price/quality ratio too. very close to everything.... More

We booked the triple apartment in a separate building for our two week stay, and let the owners arrange transportation from the airport - location may be difficult to find by car. Simple apartment on two levels (above street level, so expect stairs). Convenient to Cemberlitaş tram stop (up a steep hill), and to most of the Old City sites.... More

The location was very convenient and clean, the staff (the owner and his father) were very friendly. They were always keen to help or give us advise, note that getting there by car is a real challenge, but this is probably the case for all locations in the heart of Istanbul. I do recommend this place!!

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our trip and the accommodations were excellent for the money. I liked it so much, I canceled another hotel I had previously booked for our last night in Istanbul. While there was a bit of confusion, the staff (I forgot his name) promptly and satisfactorily fixed any misunderstanding. One thing... More
