PERFECT LOCATION: Recommended to everyone who visits Istanbul for the first time and has all the Sultanahmet historical sights in mind. Located on the quiet street in the heart of Sultanahmet. Take tram and tunel and in 20 min you will be in Beyoglu (Isticlal cadesi for shopping and nice cafes) or take tram and ferry and in 30 min...

I stayed here with three friends at the beginning of a 2 week trip around Turkey. We started off our trip in Istanbul and stayed here for the first three days. Everyone was arriving to Istanbul at different times during the day, the hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful when we needed their help. They also let us use...

I was able to get a last minute booking at this guesthouse for my Thanksgiving jaunt to Istanbul. It is located conveniently in tourist-friendly Sultanahmet on a cul-de-sac with great views of the sea. The guesthouse had recently undergone a renovation and my hardwood-floored room was nicely equipped with a canopy bed. Awaking to windows with a view of the...

A friend and I stayed here in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed the first few nights across the street at Sebnem. However, they were not able to accomodate us on the last night (we were already aware of this when we booked) and Hotel Alp graciously took us in for 70 Euros for a large very clean...

We stayed here 3 years ago and again this time for one week - we found it to be close to the "tourist sites" but not right on the busy restaurant streets, therefore quiet for sleeping. Be prepared for the sunrise call to prayer!! The rooftop terrace was a great spot for breakfast or late night viewing of the city...

We spent 4 comfortable nights at Hotel Alp. The rooms were pleasantly furnished and exceptionally clean with the unexpected bonus of a fridge and tv! Double-glazing even meant we didn't hear the 5am call to prayer on two nights (first time across Turkey). Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Our only gripe was the breakfast. The miserable-looking, insipid food was...

This place was great! Our group of three girls comfortably shared the triple room for three nights and the furnishings/ambiance were perfect. The hotel is on a quiet side street but just a few steps (literally) from a busy and lively main street that is perfect for young people. The front desk staff were always helpful and would hold an...

Stayed here with girlfriends - having never been to Istanbul before - was taking pot luck! But hotel was in fabulous location - close to everything with excellent views. Clean and neat.

Many hotels in the area seem to compete for the best views and sun terrace - Alp has a room conservatory and a terrace which allows great views while enjoyed the good breakfast but in the warm (we visited in chilly March).

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Hotel Alp has been successfully renovated after a period of 6 months filled with extensive labor and love. The exterior view of the building was completely redone by using red wood. Rooms have been cleaned, painted and decorated. Beds have been changed with new, custom-made, Ottoman-style ones. The terrace has gone through an overhaul to better suit the needs of our guests. ... more   less

“From the window of room 404 you can see the top of Hagia Sophia over the neighboring buildings. The floors are wooden, so upper levels can be quieter if you prefer not to hear people walking around.”
