“Cold Istanbul, Warm Albinas”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Second time round the Albinas was just as good if not better than the first. How do you beat their friendly service, perfect location to tourist attractions and efficient arrangements with transport. The breakfast is a feast, rooms spotless and comfortable. Cafir's sense of humour is a plus! A must is a visit to their rooftop where you can have a drink admiring the Blue Mosque.

I can't recommend The Albinas highly enough. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, and quiet, and the location is unbeatable. The breakfast is gourmet - the best I've ever seen in a hotel. The best part of the hotel is the staff, who go above and beyond their jobs in everything they do. (And not just one or two people, but everyone.) You can arrive in Istanbul to a warm welcome from Cafer and Can, who will go out of their way to make sure you find everything you need. I also enjoyed chatting with Cihan, who made me feel at home, and Mehmet, who has a great sense of humour. :) The staff made me feel genuinely welcome - not as a customer, but as a guest.

The hotel is a guaranteed great experience. I'll take every opportunity to go back and strongly recommend it.

Other notes: I was surprised on my second day with a bottle of excellent white wine and a fruit plate sent "from the manager." (See the photo - gorgeous!) I also recommend the amazing Boukoleon restaurant (just 30 feet up the hill) for fish and a stunning view of the Marmara.

i stayed at Albinas hotel for two nights. An ideal location which is very close to all major tourist attractions. A very clean hotel with a very friendly atmospehere. The hotel staff was very cooperative and willing to help in every possible manner. They guided us about istanbul to the best of their abilities, especially MR Can was very helpful and gave us special attention during our stay. Right from the hotel booking through the manager Mrs. Ilknur Gurkan till our departure it was an excellent experience.

Very clean, near to the major touristic places in the old city center, and great people always ready to help you. Cafer, Ayse, Cinam and Celal did a great job to feel myself like home. Thanks to everybody. We will see again soon! Happy New Year 2012!

From the moment we checked in until the time we checked out we were treated like honored guests..Especially by Mr.Can Tekin who gave his very special attention to all of us and especially to our CEO who happened to be with us during that trip. Not to mention the tender loving care of all the extended staff at this hotel: from the top management to the waiters at the restaurant who did not cease to please our group.
Breakfast was like a feast and the chef who did not waste one minute to give us his attention by preparing special meals that were not listed in the menu.
We will never forget that freshly prepared Chakshuka well presented to us.
Very warm atmosphere, clean rooms and most amazing people.You would think looking at Aicha that Aziade has come back to life and pierre LOTI standing at the gate of his caravanserail.
