This review is regarding the hotel restaurant only. Attracted by the prime location and the excellent tripadvisor review, as well as our previous experience in 2012, we decided to try the Alzer restaurant. It sounds that the restaurant is now run by a different administration (rented out). It was a diaster; very poor quality food, expensive (we valued the locatio)... More

Great place with a bar/restaurant at the entrance which makes it unique. The rooms are so stylish that caught our attention. Spacious rooms, very clean and big bathroom with jacuzzi. Wifi is excellent. The personnel made our stay so pleasant. Before arriving, they sent me an email offering me a taxi from the airport to the hotel for 20 euros.... More

I can't say enough good things about the Alzer Hotel! Six of us stayed here for 5 days in June before catching a Greek Island cruise and we absolutely LOVED it! First of all, the hotel's location is perfect and close to just about everything... it was literally right across from the Blue Mosque, and a short walk to Haya... More

We booked this hotel to be close to sites since kids (7, 9) were w us. At first, we were concerned; mixup with driver from Port, noisy drilling outside (which proved to be short lived) and the somewhat odd decor (feather topped lamps) and small rooms/baths. After settling in, however, we were happy to be at Alzer. Was nice to... More

This hotel is awesome, my fave hotel so far. It's boutique styling and location make this hotel a must stay if you are in the area. Unlike a previous review, I found the staff to be very helpful and courteous.

Spent a few days in March for my birthday and was pleasantly surprised. We picked this hotel for its location as a young couple in the branch we know class a service. This hotel has heart and their service is top. Thank you for a great time and all the tee we received when going down for our cigarets, we... More

A small boutique hotel. Recommend that you book a hippodrome room. A great location right on the square with easy walking distances to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, the Cisterns and Topkapi Palace. Lots of cafes, bars and restaurants close by.

We've spent a few days in Istanbul to discover the city. The hotel is situated in the heart of the old town right across the Blue Mosque. It has a beautiful view to the Marble See from the restaurant on the top floor. The stuff is very helpful and commuting in the city is very much easy from here. Our... More

I stayed here for eight nights earlier this month [ May 2015] I had previously stayed here four years earlier. The same fabulous views, the same proximity to most of the major sites, and the same delightful staff four years on! The Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the museums are all within five or ten minutes walk. The tram stop... More

Located just across the blue Mosque. Perfect view from the rooftop restaurant. We stayed in a triple room. Were told none of them have any views but plus point is the room was quieter as not facing the main street. Size of the room was ok. Decor was old. Room had a safe. AC was a bit slow to work...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood 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.
