I think this is a Smart hotel, well run, calm, offering a warm welcome. The hotel has very reasonable rates which includes a truly excellent breakfast. My room was very comfortable. The hotel is literally 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque.

I enjoyed staying at Al-Mina Hotel and would definitely recommend and certainly stay again next time I am planning to go to Istanbul. The hotel location is very good, close to Tram Stations and less than 10 min walk to Sultan Ahmet and Aya Sophiya.

The hotel is good,clear and very well located. Staff is also friendly and helpful. Food is good but every day the same,it's not very nice. City is very beatiful but I think is not very safe to visit it😱 And if you decide to visit Istanbul ,choose spring or autumn.

This was my third time returning to the Almina Hotel in Istanbul. We felt like we were being hosted by family, the staff are so gracious and welcoming. It is within a 5 minute walk to dozens of "must sees" in Sultanahmet, yet still retains the character of it's former quiet neighbourhood, unlike the crush of the heavily touristed streets...

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.
