“Bitter:Sweet”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Leaving for a few weeks at a time, for myself is a mix of emotions. The good part is jetting off to the sun whilst without a doubt the bitter part is leaving for home again once you have settled in to such a fantastic hotel. We feel truly blessed to have found Albinas Hotel whilst in Istanbul. It is beyond amazing! Rooms are very clean, staff are friendly, food was great and the views where beautiful and to top it off, the price of the rooms was excellent value for money.

Only slight downside is I wish the rooms where a bit smaller but they where comfortable though, I am just not used to a lot of space.

Me and my hubby had a great time, I highly recommend people to go and visit the blue mosque at night when it's all lit up as it looks stunning and had a great vibe around the place.

Hope to see you guys again soon, till the next time!

Hoscakal!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the top floor whilst just relaxing watching the world go by.

Great hotel. Excellent service. Great location. This is a cozzy, nice and pleasant hotel. The room is not large, but, despite having been near a stairway, is very quiet. The location is another positive point. From the hotel is possible to go on foot to places like the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Cistern, Topkapi and others. Another good point is the service and helpfulness of the staff always with good directions and helping with reservations. I recommend to all. A great hotel.

Went there for our honeymoon last month. And I must say that the there is nothing bad about the hotel that is worth mentioning.

I love the cosy concept, the Blue Mosque view and the friendly staff (Murat special compliments to you)

The room is comfortable.

Highly recommended!

I stayed in the Albinas Hotel, Istanbul, Turkey in early January with my brother and my dad. We had a brilliant time at the Hotel, it was really clean and clear and my dad got on really well with the Receptionist Murat, he was a nice guy. We felt very safe while we were in the Hotel because of how clean it was. The food was great and the meals were at the right times. The beds were really comfortable and we all agree that we had good nights sleeps. The local area was lovely, we bought some great stuff for the rest of our family and they loved it. The rooms were a perfect size, not too big, not too small, they were just the right size for all of us. The only bad thing that I could really say is that we could occasionally heard the air conditioning buzzing a bit in the night but it didn't really bother us that much. The staff were so helpful at the hotel, I really recommend this hotel to anybody and everybody. Their are pros and cons of course to every hotel, but this hotel is mainly pros and we all very much loved our stay.

my wife and i spent 2 nights from 10 to 12 jan 2013 at albinas hotel - istanbul .at sultanahmet old city ..
the hotel was so cleaned ..my wife said they cleaned every spot of the hotel using toothbrush that's how they keep their hotel clean and shine . room size is approx. 16 sq. meters in size except deluxe rooms which r bigger. friendly staff will help you as much as they can with a big smile.
breakfast buffet is small but enough ..the hotel is walking distance from sultanahmet mosque and hagiasofia and topkapi palace.and the metro station.
we will go back again whenever we visit istanbul.
thank you albinas hotel and keep a good work.

This hotel is really a good choice if you want to visit Istanbul and have everything at your fingertips.We stayed on the top floor with a beautiful view and balcony.The hotel is full of white style, and is very clean and tidy.We must commend the staff, which is always at your service and ready to help.Everybody are too kind, especially the girl from breakfast Talay Aydin.Although initially occurred little failure by the hotel, though their kindness and professionalism, they are nonetheless left a perfect impression of the house and we carry only beautiful things.If we visit Istanbul again, and we will, we'll definitely have to check whether the availability Albinas, and we will also recommend to our friends.Best greetings always smiling greeting Murat Bazdag from reception and his colleague from the bar(Fenerbahce fan).
