Very close to Sultanahmet -- you could see Blue mosque from your window. Breacfast is served on roof terrace -- great views to Marmara see and also Blue mosque. However -- as someone else mentioned in some previous comment -- there is one tree across the street that hides part of view to mosque :-))) Cosy and inexpencive place in... More

I really enjoyed staying there. The hotel is located 5-10 minutes away from the main Sultanahmet sightseenings. The breakfast was delicious, it is served on the roof terrace. The staff was friendly. The only negative detail to mention - the rooms are tiny, especially those on the ground floor. Try to book rooms on the 4th floor, they are better.

I was in a quandary whether to choose one of these small hotels in the old city, or to choose a nice modern one a bit further out. In the end, I plumped for the location and Hotel Aslan had a lot of good reviews. We found it just as many other people did. Friendly, helpful staff. Small but clean... More

We stayed here for a week with my two sons in the triple room 403. The room was comfortable with excellent air conditioning, comfortable beds and a small terrace which catches the sun for a good 10 hours! We had a really good experience. The breakfast was amazing at the roof terrace with beautiful views of the Marmara sea and... More

This is a reasonably priced, quite easy to find hotel within walking distance of all the central sights. The staff are immensely helpful and friendly, which is what you need in a strange place. The breakfast lasted us through to dinner in the evening - I must mention the really delicious deep yellow fried eggs in particular. If you like... More

the hotel itself is pretty basic but the location is awesome, the bed and the room are awesome. bathrooms maybe a little spartans, could have done better if I could have opened the windows, but in the end it's been a good time. good breakfast, really awesome people in the staff. kind and professional

Not a real flash hotel, but who wants that in the Old City. Clean and comfortable and a wonderful breakfast on the rooftop terrace in view of the Blue Mosque. Really friendly, genuine people running the place who cant do enough for you. Fantastic location just walking distance to all the wonderful places Istanbul has to offer. Highly recommended.

For the price we paid, we didn't expect much from Hotel Aslan....but we were pleasantly surprised. Very basic rooms, the wardrobe needed repairing, the loo nearly fell off the wall every time one of us sat on it and the 'balcony' opened onto a concrete wall.....but, it was clean and the welcome genuinely friendly. The location is perfect - only... More

This hotel is located on the best tourist street in istanbul. Many quaint buildings and street level restaurants. Within walking distance of all the major sights. We had the base room, which was very small but only cost $49.00 per night including tax booked well in advance on Expedia. If the price was over 100.00 I would probably choose one... More
