    Delightful small hotel, a little off the tourist path so quiet but convenient to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Arasta Bazaar, Cooking Alaturka, etc. Tasty breakfast on the roof terrace with 180-degree view of Sea of Marmara.

    Tricky to find the first time. Walking to nearby excellent restaurants on very narrow road (watch for cars!).

    We lowed to stay at Almina. We´d like to thank the whole personnel! You really made our visit pleasant. The breakfast was versatile and delicious. The hotel location in Sultanahmeth is central but at the same time quiet. Both in- and exterior of the hotel was in excellent condition. We´d like to come back in summertime and have breakfast at the roof terrace.

    All the reception staff were friendly helpful and approachable. Location was good. Breakfast was well presented and varied from fruits and cereal to cooked and cold cuts and breads. Really enjoyed our stay.

    Cut the grass.

    Superb

    All the staff were always friendly and helpful.They assisted with transport and ideas for the main sites to vist. We had an overnight tour to another part of Turkey and the hotel was very accomodating and stored our luggage for us- no charge. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. It's location is good within easy distance of all the main tourist places of the old city. we would certainly stay here on a return visit to Istanbul.

    The location was great. Easy walking to the best sites on the Golden Horn. The roof terrace was also very nice. Don't let the proximity to the train tracks discourage you, it adds a certain flair to the experience!

    The neighborhood was a bit ghetto but the people were very nice and we had no problems at all.

    The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. The location was convenient to tourist sites, even though it was difficult for some taxi drivers to find.

    Good value for price. Can't complain much.

    The bottom floor does not have any window. Diffucult to know the time of day, whether dark or light.

    Very good

    The staff were very helpful, the location was ok. Nice and comfortable. V clean and altogether an enjoyable stay.

    On the website it says the hotel has a steam room etc but that is not true. Also if the hotel.could provide maps of the local areas that would be helpful for first time visitors.

    Booked the hotel for our 3 children. Location was good, price was fair. Almina Hotel was nice, clean and staff were friendly.

    Breakfast was not good. Luckily there are so many places nearby that one can go to and have a great meal.

    The staff was friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was good.

    We booked our room and a room for our son and his family (for rour nights each) two months in advance. Even with this advance notice, when we arrived, the clerk apologized that he would have to put us into a room that "wasn't very nice". That room, in fact, was so small we did not have anyplace to put our suitcase down to open it other than on the bed. The second night we were put into a room that had two twin beds (instead of a double which we had requested) and again had very dirty carpets (stained) and stained bedspreads. The carpet did not even look like it had been vacuumed. The shower did not drain and water backed up into the bottom of it as we tried to use it. It also leaked onto the floor. The third night we were put into a room, once again with stained carpets and bedspreads and the toilet seat was loose and about ready to fall off. The main lightbulb over the sink was burned out. The "complimentary" coffee & tea trays were never re-stocked nor were the trays cleaned. One of our rooms had no spare toilet paper so we had to request it. I strongly recommend against staying at this hotel!!!
