Albatros Premier Hotel
Ranked #455 of 1,163 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We throughly enjoyed everything about our stay at the Albatros. From the location to the staff to the breakfast and the rooms, it has everything you need for a wonderful stay in Istanbul. It is housed in a beautiful building-so beautiful, in fact, that people are always taking pictures of it from the street!

As others have said the location is great--just a short walk to all the major sites and to the tram for points farther away. What I would add to that is that while it is a very central location it is also tucked away in a charming little neighborhood with quaint shops and lots of restaurants. Just off the eaten path, we felt more like locals than tourists.

We made full use of the rooftop deck. It's a great place to relax after a long day, have a beer, watch the sunset over the sea and the lights come up on the Blue Mosque.

The typically Turkish breakfast is quite extensive and fresh. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. By the way we are a gay couple and we were treated with nothing but respect and kindness by all.

WE stayed there twice-at the beginning and the end of our two-week trip to Turkey. The first room we had was typically small (as most are in Europe) with a small balcony. Upon our return we were upgraded to a suite which was huge and even had a Turkish bath If you need more room opt for a suite. At these prices it is well worth it.

If you enjoy a small boutique hotel I highly recommend the Albatros.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony or a suite if you need more space.

The hotel is conveniently located, all the historical places are easy to reach by walking. The rooms we stayed were basic, clean and comfortable with good AC. Breakfast is OK, the same everyday, with not many foods to choose from.
The staff was friendly and the service excellent.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of a two-week trip. It was conveniently located, clean, good breakfast and nice rooftop deck. The rooms we were in were pretty basic, clean, a bit old looking - AC was ok but not spectacular.

The location of the hotel is really perfect, you can reach everywhere, all the historical places by walking. The breakfast is OK, the rooms are large but this place is not the cleanest place in the world.
