We stayed 3 nights at the Alzer Hotel and found the accomodation clean, spacious and tidy. Excellent service from front desk and a lovely restaurant on the top floor with great views. Handy to all main attractions and transport, this was a great place to stay.

This is a small boutique hotel in an amazing location on the Hippodrome (big square near Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia). We were within walking distance to everything, even the Grand Bazaar. I mean, we were literally across the park from the Blue Mosque. Our room was small but enough for 2 of us as we were hardly ever there.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Alzer Hotel. What a great location on the hippodrome across from the Blue Mosque and next to the museum. The employees were nice and the rooms very clean. Ask for a hippodrome room for a great view of the plaza and mosque. The breakfast offered every morning was wonderful. We were able to walk... More

We chose this hotel based on price and location, and were not disappointed. The staff is reasonably fluent in English, the attached café serves delicious meals at a reasonable price, and they were very helpful with transfers from the airport and to a cruise ship. The hotel is located across a pedestrian promenade from the Blue Mosque, and within easy... More

Our stay at Alzer Hotel was good and sufficiently practical in fulfilling all our needs. Breakfasts were ample and nutritious, and we enjoyed an amazing view of Haja Sofia, Blue Mosque and Black Sea every morning. Truly a treat! The bathrooms were clean. Close enough to all attractions that it is really just a 5-7 minute walk to them, including... More

Spending the first week of August 2014 at Alzer hotel with my husband was an excellent experience. The location of the hotel is unique, the service is excellent and the room was very good. As in any other hotel you face some problems at the beginning but the staff were so helpful and keen to solve any issue immediately. The... More

The hotel is located on the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and so much more right at your doorstep. It was a perfect location to be able to walk to the sites and restaurants, we did not bother with the hop on/off bus, as everything was in easy walking distance. The hotel is small, but the rooms...

This is DIRECTLY on the Hippodrome! The Magnetic Column and Blue Mosque are at your doorstep. The Hagia Sophia, Cisterns, Topkapi Palace, Archaeological Museum, Mosaic Museum, and Arasta Bazaar are mere steps away. The rooms could use a makeover & improved layout but who cares when the best of Sultanahmet is outside the door. We had to rearrange the furniture... More

The service at Alzer hotel is excellent and we enjoyed our stay here. The rooms and bathroom are basic but comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was lovely with quite a few options to choose from. Chef Tayfoon made delicious omelettes on request. The view of the Blue Mosque from the breakfast area is amazing! The downstairs cafe is perfect for... More
