The Almina Hotel, under new ownership since 2009, is known for providing a high level of service to guests. The boutique hotel -- with just 29 rooms -- treats guests to complimentary services including a daily breakfast buffet and wireless Internet access. The hotel is just a short walk from many of Istanbul's most famous attractions. Nearby sights include the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, and the Grand Bazaar. On-site hotel amenities include a Turkish hamam, sauna, and a restaurant overlooking the Marmara Sea.

Rooms

The hotel's 29 rooms and suites feature traditional but simple furnishings. Room amenities include orthopedic mattresses and pillows, flat-screen LCD televisions, air conditioning, and private bathrooms with showers. The hotel's largest room can accommodate a family of four. Family room amenities include a Jacuzzi tub and a private balcony with a view of the Marmara Sea. Travelers on a tight budget should consider one of the hotel's three economy rooms, with standard amenities but no view.

Property features

A full hot and cold breakfast bar is served in the on-site Ararat Restaurant every morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. On weekends, the breakfast buffet remains open until 11 a.m. The hotel is also in easy walking distance to many of Istanbul's best restaurants and bars.

Family getaway

Great hotel located very close to a lot of historical visiting places with very scenic view from the terrace of the mamara sea and Asian side of Istanbul. Great buffet breakfast prepared and offered every morning as part of the deal. The hotel is very clean and rooms are cleaned daily . The staff are really good , polite and hospitable. They treat you as part of the family and really surprised us with a lovely gesture of providing my wife with a birthday cake for us to enjoy the occasion. Great staff great hotel

Good location right by the Blue Mosque, but also on train tracks

Decent place on charming old-world street. Free breakfast was good. Room spotless, newish furniture and bathroom elements. Free wifi. Nice rooftop terrace. I thought it was a good value, and located really well for exploring old Istanbul: hagia sophya, blue mosque, grand bazarre. One caveat: it is right on the train tracks on the south side, where all the rooms face. Trains come by a lot. I'm a pretty heavy sleeper, but this might really bother a light sleeper.

Nice Hotel

The hotel was close to all the mayor attractions, a few blocks from Blue Mosque and Agia Sofia, short walk to nice restaurants, but the Hotel is besides the train railway, the first day was impossible to sleep. The staff friendly and helpfull.Free wireless internet in the rooms and included breakfast buffet.
