Expert review of Hotel Alp Guesthouse
This is a no-frills, but pleasant place for travellers on a budget to lay their heads. I found the atmosphere relaxed and friendly inside the Hotel Alp, a recently renovated traditional house, distinctive for its red-wood exterior.
Set on the same quiet cul-de-sac as the Hotel Şebnem, the combination of peace and proximity to sightseeing and shopping is one of the Alp’s best selling points.
Though they fill the lion’s share of the 14 small rooms, I like the luxurious-looking Ottoman-made canopy beds, framed in custom-made dark wood, with a soothing yellow fabric to match the teeny old-fashioned TVs. All rooms have air conditioning, en suite bathrooms, and both wired and WiFi access. The front rooms are generally a bit bigger than the rest.
The rooftop terrace has both indoor and outdoor seating, with attractive cushioned bench seats inside, and a better-than-average Marmara view.
A good-quality breakfast buffet is included in the room rate and served on the terrace. There is no other restaurant or bar in the hotel.
The friendly staff offer lots of good tips to guests.
