Bearing in mind that this is not a high-end luxury hotel, it's an excellent bet if you're looking for something affordable in the Sultanahmet area (around Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque). It's a small place with maybe a dozen rooms or so. But the rooms are tidy and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. There are a lot of... More

Very comfortable. Rooms are nothing special or luxurious, but clean and great for sleeping after long days in Istanbul. Excellent location and very friendly staff. Beautiful rooftop terrace for breakfast (the food is so so)

We found this place through a friend's recommendation, just behind the Aya Sofia and very convenient for the Major tourist sights. The staff are very friendly and helpful, with lots of good suggestions for things to do. The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable: our family room was just right for the four of us. Breakfast in the top-floor... More

We were very happy with this small hotel. The location was great, within easy walking distance of major sites and tram stop. Although our room was small, it was very nice, with wooden floor, 4 poster bed and lots of windows, plus a small safe. The free Wi-Fi worked well. There was some late-night noise from the nearby street full... More

This a basic room but that is really all you need for trip to Istanbul. We had a room overlooking a central courtyard and found it to be quiet. The bathrooms were modernized and easy to use. The bed was comfortable and large enough to accommodate my 6'5" husband. The location is excellent since you can easily walk to all... More

I stayed In Alp guesthouse for 5 night and I liked the location, the room, the breakfast overseeing the marmara sea and the friendly and very helpful staff. The rooms are comfortable and very quiet which is surprising as it is close to a very busy street.

Compared with a different hotel on the outskirts of town I later stayed at for business meetings, this hotel was a joy. Cons? * The staff don't speak very good English, though they try very hard. * The WiFi is lame...speed and signal aren't as reliable as they ought to be. * Television channels don't provide a clear screen for...

Hotel Alp is the perfect location to easily access all of the sites, tram and restaurants. The staff is very helpful in securing taxis, giving restaurant suggestions, carrying bags and helping with directions. We stayed here in May, 2014 and plan to return. It is a lovely spot with a view of the Marmara from breakfast on the rooftop terrace... More

Hotel Alp is a number one choice in Istanbul. The rooms are spotless, staff very friendly and the breakfast room views are incredible. We stayed for 4 nights. The location of the hotel makes it possible to visit all sites within a total of 5 minute walk in any direction. I would also recommend the use of an airport shuttle... More
