I stayed here for three nights with two other people. The staff was very accommodating and nice. It was very low key which I love. The breakfast was simple but very good. The lady who was setting it up was extremely nice and was regularly baking something for the following morning after it was all set up. The roof deck... More

A lovely place to sit before venturing out to see all the sghts of Istanbul. The Alp is only a few minutes walk from all the... More

Everything was just perfect! Warm atmosphere, like at home, like visiting friends in Istanbul. The staff was very friendly and always very helpful especially Mr. Selmane. Very recommended and hope to be back one day, for longer stay as 2 nights far not enough.

After traveling in Turkey for a month we returned to the Hotel Alp in Istanbul at the end of our trip. Alp was the best hotel we stayed in during our travels. It's in an attractive traditional Ottoman style small building, has tastefully decorated rooms, is very conveniently located to major sights and transportation, with helpful friendly staff, and serves...

My friends (total 3 of us, all women) and I stayed at this place for 4 nights. The hotel is VERY well located, in Sultan Ahmet area, walking distance to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, even closer to Topkapi Palace. We walked through the area at all times and never had any issues with safety. The hotel staff was... More

We have recently returned from Istanbul where we stayed at the Hotel Alp Guesthouse. We were delighted with the location as we could walk to the major sites in the Sultanahmet area. We would particularly like to thank the staff who were most helpful when we left behind a pair of sandals. They parcelled them up and forwarded them to... More

The newly refurbished Hotel Alp is a haven of peace and comfort in the midst of the major Istanbul sites of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia and Topkapi Palace. It's located on a side street, just steps to the main dining and shopping street (the Four Seasons Hotel is on the other end of the side street, 2 blocks away).... More

Very pleasant stay although room was small and no view. Newish bathrooms shower worked very well. Top attraction here is roof terrace where breakfast is served and you can use it the rest of the time to take your own drinks, read, smoke. CCTV everywhere makes this a safe place to stay.

This was my second stay at the Alp hotel and it was just as wonderful as the first. They are located within a 10 min walk of the main attractions, Hagia Sophia, Cistern, and the palace.

I stayed at Hotel Alp for 5 nights. A perfect base for exploring. Breakfast buffet is delicious and greatly appreciate BEAUTIFUL rooftop courtyard. I also appreciate that they provided access to filtered drinking water throughout your stay at no additional cost. I visited during a hot time of the year and this was a huge help. I would fill up...

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.

“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.”
