“Superb hotel for city break.”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Albinas Hotel Old Town for two nights for a short visit to Istanbul. This was an excellent choice the location for site seeing could not be better with more than you can fit in within easy walking distance. The hotel is lovely fresh and comfortable with a great choice for breakfast. We were made welcome by the friendly efficient staff who were more than helpful. Thank you all!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Albinas Hotel. The staff was very friendly, and were extremely helpful answering any questions or concerns we had. Although the rooms were a little small, they were very clean and updated. Breakfast was very good, although not American style, we were always able to find plenty to eat. Well situated amid all the sights, yet still quiet, we found this hotel an exceptional bargain and would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you Albinas for making our stay in Istanbul so special.

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!

My partner and I decided to go to Istanbul for a long week-end and I choose this hotel on the base of other reviews and of its location. The hotel is infact located in a strategic position.. However, although from it you can reach in a few minutes walking all the most important monuments, it is located in a very charming little street quiet and clean. The room was very nice with all the confort and the facilities one may require in a small hotel and the terrace on the roof, from which you can admire the sea on side and the old city on the other, added a bonus. But what made our staying special was the staff cordiality, friendliness and professionality. Imagine that they even prepare a suprise birthday cake for my partner because they saw the date on its passport. We both strongly reccomend it!

This hotel was just what we were looking for. It is in a perfect location, near to all of the main sites of the city. It is spotlessly clean, modern and personal. The staff are a delight and will do anything to help.

There are many little touches that made this a memorable stay. As soon as we arrived we were served drinks whilst shown a map of the surrounding area. This helped us to orientate ourselves. Whilst we were in Istanbul it was my mother's birthday. The hotel presented her with a chocolate cake with candles which helped to make her day special.
They even checked us in for our return flights back home.

The rooms are comfortable with satellite tv, safe and a bathroom full of toiletries. It was always a pleasure to come home at the end of a long day sightseeing.

When i return to Istanbul i will be staying here. I take this opportunity to say a big thank you to you all.

Albino was an accidental find for us. Post-stay check on tripadvisor confirmed what we experienced. A wonderful stay, we extended for another day. At 80 euros per night, considering Istanbul's standard, it is a gem. Whoever the owner is, kudos to him or her for making the place what it is. For a weary traveller seeking to soak the sensuality, history and richness of Istanbul, to be able to add this stay to that experience is simply wonderful. The staffs Murat and Sazae were courteous and amazing. Where else do you get a hot apple tea, when you come over to collect the luggage after your have checked out. Personal experience as a yardstick, highly recommended. Good value for money. Highlights, the extremely comfortable beds and the rooftop garden with a stunning background. Could have been a wee bit better, the size of the bathroom. Not a major issue, ENJOY
