We arrived at the Albinas hotel after 23 hours of air travel for our first night in turkey. The hotel is situated a stones throw from the blue mosque in the old city . The man at reception was a bit short with me about having sent an airport shuttle out to pick us up but appologised after I insisted I emailed advising that I did not want the service. After that we were offered chai while he checked us in. The hotel has a lift which makes this easy and the bell boy helped with our bags. Our room did not have a balcony which was a shame but was beautifully decorated with floor boards and crystal chandlers so we were happy. The bathroom was excellent and clean and the hot water worked immediately with great water pressure ! We headed to the roof top terrace which has sweeping views of the harbour and is loomed over by the blue mosque , enchanting ! We could walk to anything we wanted to see and u can order beverages to be brought up to the roof terrace which we took full advantage of. The next morning we ha to leave at 5 am to get to Gallipoli so the man at the desk provided us with lovely sandwiches for us to take on our jOurney as we could not take advantage if breakfast. We will stay again and recommend !
