We, 2 couples, in our mid- fifties stayed for 4 nights, from the 18th. to the 22nd. of September 2014, at this wonderful little hotel in the middle of the old city of Istanbul.

We have just returned from a super eventful vacation at Almina Hotel in the old part of Istanbul. The hotel was located in a small street right behind the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia in Sultanahmet. It is a very cosy and interesting area if you want to experience the old Istanbul. The staff at Almina hotel was super serviceminded...

Hotel rooms are nice and comfy, clean and there is a safe. Breakfast was of average quality... Lots to choose from (mostly cheese, meats and eggs) but a little crowded in the buffet area. Nice little hotel near old city. Good location for all the old sites of Istanbul!

The location is good even though the alley is a little deserted at night , The best rooms are in the 3rd floor, the first and basement are just a nightmare! way too loud, it feels like you are sleeping in the street. The staff was very accommodating, and I will stay there if I were to go to Istanbul...

You get: - roof terrace (common in Istanbul), but have opportunity to take your breakfast there - nice breakfast - free WIFI - central position for sightseeing the old town (Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Tonkapi palace), but quiet - tram is...

When I travel (a lot) ...convenience and value supersede luxury and amenities. But there is a fine line, where for a bit more money, you get a lot more. Almina has some good qualities. But the poor ones out number them. I don't care about the size of the room, etc as I don't spend much time there. And the...

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.
