The space

Hello Friends!

I've got plenty of rooms for you :)

This property is real close to the monuments of Old Istanbul; actually we're just located inside what has happened for centuries. A 5 minutes walk will get you to the huge obelisk brought from Egypt to the center of Constantinople is just an easy example. Words are unnecessary if you just check out what's around us in maps: (URL HIDDEN)
You can also search for it in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) as "aleph hotel istanbul" or visit our website: (URL HIDDEN)

Guest access

Guests have access to almost everywhere within the building; we've got a quite spacious lobby, a terrace that can host more then 20 people, where you can enjoy your drink and chat with new or old friends.

Interaction with guests

Front desk is available 24 hours a day. And in the daytime I am around myself too.

Other things to note

We're in the center of the old Istanbul, it's just 20 minutes with public transportation to Taksim, where anyone who come to this city wanna go for a night out for it's being always alive until the early morning with countless choices for hang outs.

Amazing location at an incredible price. Room was very comfortable. Delicious breakfast. Only several blocks away from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia.

Very good location which was near to interest places, good staff, and affordable! Hostel room too crowded and limited space. Furniture & interior need to be improved to make more spaces in the room.

Not good location as described. Small place with kitchen smelling all around. However hosting was ok they tried to help but for the price isnt worth, have stayed in much better places and with better location for the same price.

Response from Murat:
This is an unbelievable review after asking and GETTING BACK THE WHOLE AMOUNT. If this guy was pleased to stay with other places why chosen us? We realized that he was unhappy staying over here and give his money back and he continued staying. This is lame.

Murat's place is the best you can get in Istanbul! Placed very near to Sultanahmet sq., the hostel is very easy to find. The room are very nice, I'd say they've got 4*hotel standards! Private room and breakfast as well, so what can you pretend more?! The pavement of the bathroom was a bit dusty but otherwise it was very very clean! If you visit Istanbul, you MUST stay in Murat's place! He and his coworkers are very friendly and kind. Once again, thank you Murat, hope to meet ya again! And you, tourists, rent Murat's room, you won't be disappointed!

I am a former graphic designer busy with managing a 25 room hotel in the center of Istanbul called Aleph Hotel.

I try to serve people a place where people can find peace, decency, civilized behaviour. Trying with my college to keep it always clean n' nice.

In my place you will feel the european atmosphere with open minded people to all ideas and point of views. Your safety and good mood is our pleasure when you stay and enjoy this property.

My intention is to develop this place into a humble center where people from all around the world will come together, communicate, feel the peace of being together or enjoy their time to rest their head.

It's not bad until now, pack you bag and stay with us; with people like you in the center of this beautiful city.
