Charming boutique hotel in front of Hippodrome

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 3, 2008

The Alzer Hotel and Restaurant is a charming Ottoman style hotel located right in the heart of Sultanahmet in facing the Hippodrome and the Blue Mosque. The entrance to the hotel is from its equally excellent restaurant.

Unique Quality: The rooms have views of the Blue Mosque and Hippodrome and are decorated in a blend of Ottoman and Western style. There is a chandelier in each room and even the telephone is an antique rotary-style telephone.

Directions: Facing the Hippodrome

We stayed here in April 2007, its location is probably its best point as its across the road from the blue mosque. The room we had was facing the street and was perfectly fine clean and spacious. On the first night we were awoken by the call to prayer at four in the morning, it has a certain charm the first time you hear it but the other mornings we could have done without it. Breakfast was quite good with loads of asian fruits, figs, dates etc. The restaurant is several floors up and has superb views of the Bosphorus and the Sea of Marmara with its bumper to bumper of ships and liners. There was one waiter who there who plagued us to have dinner in the restaurant in the hotel throughout our stay, unfortuneatly we should have politely refused from the beginning. The food is fine and basic in the evening but you probably would be the only one there in the restaurant as there a several much better places within walking distance of the hotel. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Best Located Hotel in Istanbul

We loved our friends at Alzer. I have never met such wonderful and warm hotel staff. We were welcomed as family members and treasured patrons. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Hopefully, they will always remember how much the Ammericans appreciate their warmth, understanding and kindness. Istanbul is an incredible city steeped in culture, tradition and most importantly hospitality.

Unique Quality: Alzer Hotel is the only hotel located at the center of Sultanahmet’s historical hippodrome where the cultures and religions meet.

The hotel gives you taste of these differences by it’s location,
mystically renovated building and traditional Turkish hospitality.
The hotel is facing The Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) and is literally
within five minutes walking distance from Hagia Sophia,
Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar

Directions: topkapi palace, blue mosque, st. sophia, grand bazaar

Location is the key...

This is a very pleasant hotel right on the Hippodrome. Much of what you came to see in this city is in walking distance. They have an optional service to pick you up and drop you off at the airport. The staff was very helpful, and they can help you arrange a tour if you like. A breakfast is served on the top floor, where you have an awesome view of the Blue Mosque. Our room looked out to the column of Constantine on the Hippodrome as well as the Blue Mosque. As long as you don't mind hearing the calls to prayer (the first around 6AM), I recommend staying here. I would probably stay here again.

Unique Quality: It is right on the Hippodrome. Few places are so close to the sites as this hotel. It will take you a few minutes to reach the Blue Mosque.
