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

We stayed at the hotel twice during our holiday in Turkey and had a great time on both occasions. The location of the hotel is ideal as it is situated in the Hippodrome area, overlooking the Blue mosque. The tram lines, hop on hop of bus services and some attractions like Hagia Sofia, Topkapi museum etc are not far away.... More

We stayed in this lovely boutique hotel on two separate trips in 2013. Staying right at the Blue Mosque is quite amazing and the call to prayer is quite wonderful to hear at this location. The rooms are unique, clean and very comfortable with fine bathrooms of a good size. Staff is helpful and very pleasant. Breakfast is a fine... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in February, 2014. The location is perfect if your intention is to visit the big tourist sites. Staff was friendly. Some front desk service seemed more competent than others. We received free airport pickup. Our reserved room was not available the first night, so we were put up in their big 4th floor suite facing... More

Just the location of this hotel could easily lead one to give it an excellent rating. In the heart of the Sultanahmet district and located just off the ancient Hippodrome, you are within walking distance of many of the major tourist attractions of Istanbul. However, the warm, friendly and helpful staff easily put it in the excellent category for me.... More

Can't complain to much about this hotel. It probably has the best location in Istanbul. close to everything and an awesome view from the window. I think I lucked out....but the 5th floor facing the Blue Mosque is just awesome. I just booked a return trip because of how convienant this location was. The room was decent sized and bathrooms...

This is a small, well-established, hotel that is on Sultanahmet Square. Other hotels are near, but not 'on' the square. The rooms are European-sized, and comfortable; not exceptional. The breakfast on the rooftop enclosed terrace has a view over the Bosphorus shipping lanes and over the Square. Also, the food is good. Downstairs on the Square, at the hotel entrance,... More

As loathe as I am to giving an excellent to anything, the Alzer Hotel's location and staff have made me give it 5 'stars'. This our second visit to Istanbul and our first experience (unreviewed) at the Alzer was what prompted us to return. The location on the Hippodrome less than 100 metres from the Blue Mosque make it a... More
