Great Location, Poor Organisation and Customer Service

The hotel itself was fine. The location was perfect for us, easy walking distance of the main tourist sights of Istanbul and plenty of little restaurants. The big problem was the receptionist, upon our arrival we were shown to a standard room adjacent to reception, as we had paid for a superior room, I complained, we were told that the following day we would be moved to a superior, there was no prior warning of this at reception, no apology afterwards and not even an offer to reimburse the difference in the price of the room (which I am still waiting for incidentally). I could put this down to a simple oversight, I am a hotel manager myself and know that these things happen occasionally but as we were complaining about the wrong type of room, there were two other customers complaining of the same thing simultaneously that were also not offered so much as an apology. If the room allocation(or even reaction to our disappointment)had been better we would have been very happy with the hotel but sadly this put a negative spin on the beginning of what was generally an excellent stay in Istanbul.

Cheers Soul Kitchen - Whilst pretty modern definitely the best food we had in Istanbul, just around the corner on Kucuk Ayasofya Avenue Cayiroglu Sok. Staff and food were both incredible!

Excellent hotel

It was clean and friendly. The breakfasts were more than adequate, and the dinner was excellent. Staff were very helpful, and it is situated near all the 'must-see' sights of a very beautiful city. One one mini-grumble...no waste paper bin in bedroom...only one was in bathroom.

Take EUROS. Many trips / tourist attractions are priced in Euros. Not a suitable holiday for kids, to be fair. No sand, and many going around the famous sites looked bored!

Awesome Vacation! ... but where is my Fruit Basket?

The Hotel Staff is welcoming and nice, the room is was very clean, small but confortable, we got a great rate thought was with very short advice, Wi Fi Internet is fast and always works great, breakfast Buffet is good, varied and enough. Sultanahmet Plaza is reached by a short walk, in the way you can also find a Bazaar and nice, cozy Restaurants as well. By the way, by the reservation, I was promissed to become a Welcome Fruit Basket that I never saw.

Take the Big Bus in Sultanameht Plaza to see all the main atractions in the City. Another tip: The best currency exchange be could of find from CH Francs to T-Lira was in one of the Main entrances at Grand Bazaar.

Nice access to City's main attractions

Me and my wife had a very nice experience, the rooms are comfy enough and clean. Breakfast was not that great in my opinion, but it looks like it's an issue with Turkish food in general. The location is superb, really 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque and the Hippodrome, 7 from Hagia Sofia, 10 from Topkapi Palace. Recommended.

4 days in amazing proximity

Arrived early morning. Even not included we have been invited for breakfast. After that we have couple of hours in the old city before actual check-in. The room was OK in all respects tough small. Wireless signal was too weak so we asked for room change. It was promised with no argue and was done the very next day. Hotel is well maintained and the staff is friendly. The roof terrace is nicely organized the view is interesting but not fabulous as claimed. Best thing: Proximity of all tourist attractions in Sultanahmet area. Worse thing: TV stations available are NOT for the English language speaker.

good location but not comfortable

Excellent location for visiting the sights of Sultanahmed. Bedroom had small bed, was very hot and stuffy and poor sound insulation from noisy neighbours. Staff forgot wake up call.

Quaint Old Style Hotel

A quaint old style hotel with authentic Turkish decor situated in the old part of Istanbul, within walking distance to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia Cathedral, as well as the public transport system(tram) which is very easy to use. The room was small but comfortable and clean. The room airconditioner did not work on the first night but when my wife complained at 1:00 am in the morning a staff member made temporary repairs for the night.The airconditioner was fixed properly the next day. The staff were friendly, helpful and curtious and the breakfast was adequate. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was within walking distance to the main shopping centre, resturants, money changers and public transport.

Use the tram.It will get you anywhere you want to go faster and cheaper than a taxi. Buy a ticket at a booth for a set ammount and use it for as many trips as you like. If you have not used it for the full payment during your stay, then hand it back to the booth and they will refund you the unused portion. If you must use a taxi then be prepared to haggle and get an agreed price before you go. Don't rely on the meter as this will cost you more.

Home away from Home....Great place!

I stayed at Albatros Premier Hotel for 3 nights in April 2012. I immediately felt good.I was on business and combined it with some visits in Istanbul: Great value, economical,super location, excellent breakfast, clean rooms , friendly employees who showed that they care..The GM was great as he asked me if i feel confortable, if I needed something else etc...Also, the owner was a lot of fun smiling and showed a lot of interest in his Hotel operation...I had dinner there and the food was tasty (specially their Cesaer Salad)...Also, the waitress was very professional and smiling... I highly recommend people to stay at Albatros...Great experience.
