Booked this place as the hotel I stayed at on last visit was full. Nice clean hotel with very helpful and accommodating staff. My second floor room had a view of the water which was a nice bonus! Definitely heard street noise but it's a big city so to be expected. Breakfast was good but other hotels step it up... More

This was my first visit to Istanbul, and I was travelling with friends.We wanted to stay in Sultanahmet as the location was only a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Basilica Cistern, Hagia Sofia and the Topkapi Palace. The room was a twin and an adequate size for me and my friend. It also overlooked the main street area,which... More

First off, The Alaturka has AMAZING views from the rooftop terrace! However, there is a restaurant up there, so other than the mornings (when complementary breakfast is served in the terrace restaurant), you can't really go up unless you are eating at the restaurant...which I would not recommend as the food was pretty bad. Definitely worth it to go up... More

We weren't sure what to expect as our first visit to Istanbul. Room was a generous size and overlooked the main street area. Whilst this was nice the enthusiastic crowds in the local bars at night were a bit noisy so a room off the street would be better or use ear plugs. Bathroom was fine and no issues. Decor... More

The service was exceedingly friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had the best stay possible. The rooms are nice & clean, the rooftop bar & restaurant has awesome views of the Bosphorus, and the location is tough to beat if you're looking to explore the Old City / Sultanahmet / Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia...

The positive first: The location was great -- a 3 minute walk to the Hagia Sophia and Blue mosque area. The negatives: First impression: As I walked in, there was a fish and seafood stand right outside the entrance of this establishment. Not every one is a fan of the smell of raw fish!! At the counter, I was greeted... More

Our stay at Alaturka met our expectations. It was a large room with a nice view of the street scene below and a partial view of the Mosques. It had a tough act to follow since this was our first hotel after a magical 2 night in a Cappadocia cave hotel. The Alaturka's location was great for walking to all... More

Having read other reviews of the Alaturka on Trip Advisor, I made a reservation online and they were quick with a response. I emailed a day later and asked for a pickup at the airport which they arranged with no problems. We stayed there for 6 nights at the b eginning of our three weeks in Turkey, and then another...

We stayed here for 4 nights and could not have been happier. The hotel had a driver to pick us up at the airport even though our flight was late and we did not arrive until 12:30am. The hotel is in a great location...5 minute walk to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and other attractions. The front desk guys are... More

My friends and I came to Istanbul for a quite long weekend and we lived in a big room for 4 people. I shoud say that I liked everything: a spacious 2-room apartment, very friendly and helpful staff always ready to help, great location (5 min walk to Aya Sofia), cosy and picturesque surroundings, 2 min walk to a taxi...
