Really adviseable hotel in the middle of the old town, close to all historical attractions of Istanbul (to walk). You get: - roof terrace (common in Istanbul), but have opportunity to take your breakfast there - nice breakfast - free WIFI - central position for sightseeing the old town (Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Tonkapi palace), but quiet - tram is...

When I travel (a lot) ...convenience and value supersede luxury and amenities. But there is a fine line, where for a bit more money, you get a lot more. Almina has some good qualities. But the poor ones out number them. I don't care about the size of the room, etc as I don't spend much time there. And the... More

Hello lilliup, I would like to thank you for your feedback. This hotel has new management and new team. We are investigating every part of the hotel to serve better for our guests. Unfortunately I disagree with you about our location. If we compare to other areas of Istanbul, our location is not surrounded by hills. It is 5-10 minutes... More

I stayed for three nights in late May with a friend and we loved it here. We had a twin room and the beds were comfortable, the room and bathroom spotless and we had a windowbox which opened onto a garden/lawn. The staff were friendly and helpful. The best part was the rooftop terrace with the incredible views of the... More

We stayed in April 2014 in Almina. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The room was clean and for two persons we had everything what we needed. We enjoyed the roof terrace with view(hopefully they replaced the garden furniture). We recommended this hotel, the price and quality was reasonable.

We stayed at Almina Hotel from 27th June to 4th July 2014. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and everything you needed was provided. I would highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast was amazing! Variety of fruits, bread and cheese and lovely fresh coffee and juice. Every day something extra special was on offer. Something for everyone.

First off- there seemed to be random things added onto our bar bill, tried to charge us for wine we never had, think they just put a room number to whoever was on the terrace! Saying that, Nazmi and Mehmet gave superb customer service, and were very helpful. Limited English, but that's our fault, should have learnt some Turkish before... More

This small hotel is in a great location, sited in the old town and near to all the fantastic sights that Istanbul has to offer. We were in walking distance of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the Cisterns and lots of restaurants. The nearest tram station is Sultanahmet which was easily walkable. The tram system took us around the... More
