The Albinas Hotel was charming! It added to an amazing first trip to Istanbul. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The hotel was located near everything major in Olde City but was just removed enough to be quiet and out of the way, a really unique blend. The morning's complimentary breakfast was generous and fresh. I am a very picky American eater and even I found several things to nosh on before starting our day of sightseeing. While the rooms were "New York small", it was clean and the beds (at least ours) was new and very comfortable affording a good night sleep. Perhaps because we were there in the tail of the off season, they did not have anything going on on the roof top deck. You had access to it, and if you called on the phone on the wall they'd bring you drinks from the bar downstairs-who's bartender was very sweet and couldn't have been more helpful. Happy hour on the deck would have been nice - music, drinks and apps, perhaps they do that during the main season. The two main front desk guys were so nice and so helpful, they couldn't do enough for you. I felt really badly one morning when an Italian family staying there had a huge fit about the breakfast complaining of no scrambled eggs and wanting "cream" specifically not milk for their coffee...... I have travelled a decent amount internationally and never reviewed a hotel before but really wanted to share this experience and support the hotel staff. We'd stay again ANYTIME! Thank you to everyone there!
