                          • Next to the historic area and nice hotel. Good price and helpful staff. Excellent room as appeared, breakfast was fantastic.

                            Lovely place in the old city of Istanbul and poor service. The beds too hard, bread not fresh.

                          • The location is pretty nice and hotel is clean. The staff are amazing and the rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast is good.

                            My unhappy stay at albatros and not worth the price. Service could be better and the beds are very hard. Too bad the bar isn't open anymore, the food could be a bit more varied.

                            The charge to pick up at the airport was outrageous, the place was being renovated durin our stay and the Bed was hard uncomfortable.

                          • Location is the best, Istanbul is lovely town musssssst seeeee and of nice shops are within walking distance. The hotel is very comfortable, at prices is well worth and also I liked the Turkish tea compliment at the lobby for me. The staff are very friendly and rooms are very clean. Breakfast and general ethos are good and the short walks to exciting restaurants.

                            In a fairly quiet area, one of the stuff attitude was bad and the bathroom was clearly not finished.

                            The window leaked badly rained and little choices of food.

                            The rooms are small and breakfast should be more rich.

                            Excellent location, dirty bed sheets and free breakfast must be free due to the fact everything was constantly finished.

                            The breakfast needs an English style menu and the advertisment claiming check in at 7am is false, food and drinks are rather expensive.
