Boutique hotel features hand-painted frescoes on guest room ceilings
Budget-friendly hotels do not usually offer the decor and personal touches found at the Alaaddin Hotel. Guests get a visual treat in their hotel rooms thanks to hand-painted frescoes on the ceilings. Other features that make the seven-floor Alaaddin special include its classical exterior and roof garden café. The Alaaddin is on Istanbul’s historic peninsula. Nearby attractions include the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and the Basilica Cistern.
Highlights
  • Hand-painted frescoes on guest room ceilings
  • Walking distance to major attractions
  • Close to tram station
  • Complimentary wired and wireless Internet access in guest rooms
Rooms
The decor in the hotel’s 18 rooms make them feel far grander than their cost should allow. All rooms have full amenities. The room decor is the clear star of a stay at the Alaaddin. Rooms feature antique or antique-style furniture and hand-pained ceiling frescoes. Rich patterns cover many of the fabrics and walls. Eight of the hotel’s rooms look out on a former language school erected in 1874. Room amenities include complimentary high-speed Internet access and bedroom slippers.
Features
The hotel’s terrace restaurant offers stunning views of Istanbul, the Bosphorus, and historic sites including Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sophia. Guests who prefer indoor dining can take a seat in the elegant dining room. The dining room also features a frescoed ceiling. Other hotel amenities include a breakfast room and 24-hour room service.

Perfect lil hotel located perfectly!!

This was my second time staying at Aladdin and it not only met, but exceeded my expectations. The location is perfect, especially if you want to be equally close to all major Sultan Ahmet attractions including the Sultan Ahmet Tram Station. But being so close, it is fortunately also on a little street with a couple of govt. buildings taking up the entire other side of the street. Point being, that it is close to all humdr but surprisingly quiet & peaceful at the same time!! The staff is great and very helpful....! Breakfast seating area and food are top notch!! Love it!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

I highly recommend Seher Hatlari Bosphorus tours. They are by far the best. I took their long/full 6 hours trip and loved it!! Leaves at 10:30am from Eminonu area. You can walk from the hotel to that area in as lil as 15 minutes.

adequate, affordable, conveniently located

The affordable rate especially suited my 10 night conference / research trip stay and I found the hotel wholly adequate for my needs: convenient location, clean and comfortable rest, delicious breakfast provided, and adequate internet access. Location was perfect as I was working mainly at Süleymaniye library within walking distance. For those visiting the main sites of the historic peninsula (Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Çemberlitaş Baths, Grand Bazaar, etc. etc.) it is exceptionally convenient. Otherwise, reaching other parts of the city (for conference and leisure) was also incredibly convenient as the hotel is located so near tram stops along Divanyolu Caddesi, falling between Sultanahmet (closest down the hill) and Çemberlitaş (just up the hill). Hotel staff were attentive and helpful and I felt quite safe though traveling alone. Room was small but comfortable and attended daily with clean towels, etc. Bed was comfortable and in room bathroom with shower was perfectly adequate. Clothes closet was plenty spacious. Roosters and other animals could be heard in the early morning but were not a great bother, especially with window closed. Breakfast was a special pleasure with Turkish fare (olives, cheese, tomato, cucumber, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt even freshly made börek most mornings) and also various meats (I am vegetarian), sweet breads, cereal, etc. with tea and coffee and juice. Lovely view from the breakfast room and roof top terrace. Internet access was provided (seemingly with a router for each floor) and connectivity was generally good to very good. I had no difficulty conducting my online work.

Great hotel in Sultanahmet

This hotel was perfect for my needs. My room was quite small, but included a wardrobe, private bathroom, flat-screen TV, free wireless internet, and an air conditioning unit. The breakfast on the top floor was excellent (buffet style, Turkish breakfast), and the rooftop terrace was a delight. An elevator and indoor staircase made it easy to get to upper-floor rooms, and quick to get down (not all hotels in Sultanahmet have elevators, because of the age of the buildings). Though the hotel is only a block or two from the Sultanahmet tram stop, it's tucked behind the busy street so it was surprisingly quiet, with a fresh produce shop right next door. I highly recommend this small and friendly hotel!

Great location for Sultanahmet

First impressions were not the best. I had prearranged transfers from the airport and was met by a young teenage boy who couldn't speak a word of English (and who managed to use 2 phones at once, 1 in each ear!). He had obviously been told to wait for quite a few others as we were shepherded together and gestured to wait for quite a while. Eventually it became clear we were to share a minibus with another couple who were staying in another hotel, so off we went. I had read reviews from others that the rooms were small - on arriving at the hotel I realised that was an understatement! However, it was clean and well decorated, apart from the central light fitting being held only by the wires connecting it to the power supply. There doesn't seem to be very good soundproofing inside the hotel, plus as our room was facing straight out onto the street at street level and we could hear everything outside too, even with the window shut. There wasn't any air conditioning as stated either. Despite this it was a nice hotel and very centrally located for the old town, a short stroll from the tram/Blue Mosque etc., with restaurants a stones throw away. Breakfast was very good - it must be difficult catering for various nationalities but they seemed to succeed. Food was replenished continually and it was nice to have breakfast with great views. I wouldn't describe this as a boutique hotel, but have no complaints about our recent stay there. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Great location, but....

Superb Sultanahmet location, clean, with very friendly staff. We really enjoyed hearing the schoolchildren playing across the street. However, our room was small with no furniture on the hardwood floors. We had to put our luggage and stuff on the floor. Not ideal. The bed was not very nice and we did not sleep well at all for our three nights there. Lastly, the breakfast was not very good. Cons: Cramped room without furniture, bad bed, breakfast wasn't impressive. Pros: Best location, great view from roof of Blue Mosque at night, quiet, clean, not too expensive for location, friendly staff. All in all it may still be a good value given the fantastic location, cleanliness, and friendly staff.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Sura Hotel around the corner has an amazing outdoor cafe. We've been in Turkey for a week and nothing else comes close. Incredible. Walk down from the Alaaddin, take first right then immediate left toward Blue Mosque, it will be on your right side (North).

Great value and clean

My stay was precisely what I wanted - a quiet and clean hotel. 20 rooms over 5 floors and its in good condition, meaning the facilities are well kept and the room itself had no issues. Staff was friendly, room was cleaned daily and breakfast was simple but good. There was no safe in the room, but I wasn't expecting one. Wireless worked well on my tablet and phone. Location was great given its in the heart of Sultanamet, which means the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and other attractions are just down the road. Really I have no complaints about the hotel at all. You will be satisfied provided your expectations are in line with the price. I should note, and this is no fault of the hotel, that a nearby residence has roosters. Did you know roosters make noise at all hours, not just sunrise? I didn't. Earplugs saved the night(s)!
