The hotel Alp has a truly helpful and personable staff. Erman and both Mustafas are great fellows, fun to talk to, and just good to be around. This hotel has an absolute lack of pretense. The rooms are clean, the beds very comfortable, showers have good pressure and its good to have a little refrigerator in the room. We stayed...

Service friendly helpful and effiicient. Relaxed atmosphere. Good turkish breakfast, plus cereals, available till 11 am for late risers. Hungry teenagers can fill up. For the inexpensive price, the rooms, and the en suite showers here are a good size, and cleaned every day.. We had a fantastic holiday in Istanbul and staying at this hotel definitely contributed to that....

Pros: prime location, right near the restaurants, cafes, and major sites in the Old Quarter, clean rooms, rooftop dining for breakfast with good views of the Bosphorus. There were no downsides to the hotel but no memorable upsides other than the location -- that's why I would recommend it as a solid, no frills choice in the Old Quarter but...

After many hours of searching I came upon the The Alp and it was what I was seeking. Quaint, simple, in a good location. Not over decorated or plush. The Alp has a fresh peaceful style and allows the original architecture to shine. From the easy pick up at the airport to check in and unwinding after a long journey,...

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.

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.

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.

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.”
