                  The hotel is very close to historical place, shopping area and the sea. Even to close to touristic area, it is very quite. Good hospitality.

                  Breakfast should be more rich and börek should freshly serve also late breakfast.

                  The hotel is quite clean and modern, nice roof terrace.

                  Our room was tiny (eventhough it was supposed to be a superior one); on the pics the hotel e-mailed us it looked huge, however when we arrived we could hardly move around without bumping into each and tripping over the suitcases. When I mentioned it at the reception they said all the rooms in the hotel are "superior" apart from several suites however the hotel brochure in our room said there were both "superior " and "standard". I presume we could've argue the price charged but we didn't bother to go over it again. The breakfast is from 7.30 till 10.30 but if you show up after 9.30 there's not much left and they don't seem bring anything untill ask them. However I guess compared with other Istambul hotels those were just minor annoyances..

                  We liked the outfit of the rooms (a nice specific old athmosphere) - baldaquin bed....

                  The room (appartment) had some probems with the water pipes - the water gets into the walls and there is a strange wet smell (you have to keep the windows open)

                  Nothing good

                  1-Over booked, had to stay in another hotel apartment( Ayasofia apartments) for the first night and a burglar came into the room at 4 am. Luckily, I was awake and shouted which made him ran away. Staff did not call the police but changed our hotel to Albatros 2- the room was anything but ''superior' and not the one I booked. 3- ac was not working throughout our stay despite our complaints.4- Toilet was smelly and the seat was broken which was not fixed. In short, our holiday turned into nightmare because of the hotel!!

                  the staff was amazing, really they were very kind, and my mother decided to come back to Istanbul and stay in Albatros because of the cute staff! the breakfast is good, rooms are very clean, and the don't have noise parties.

                  I didn't like that they don't have a laundry, iron. that's all/

                  Thanks to Booked.net group for the informations they provided for the hotel .The staff of the hotel are very good , cooperative and ready to help , hotel location is very good near to the attractions

                  The room is really small , although I booked triple bed room and was planning to ask for extra bed for my 7 years old daughter but the size of the room did not encourage me to request extra bed other wise we will not be able to move , also bathroom is small and control of the water temperature is not good ( suddenly change to cold) , but generally speaking it is accepted quality for the price in istanbul and it is quite room , u can sleep well

                  Good Breakfast; Very friendly staff; Walking distance (10minutes) to Blue Mosque; Great view from topmost terrace.

                  General disrepair of items, usually minor, but also an ac (ac repair took four days). Carpets need to be cleaned.
