The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

    The most memorable time in Istambul
    My friend advised me to come to this shop, and this new acquintance became one of the most impressive and memorable from the whole trip. These people were so hospitable and open-hearted. They kindly showed me and my friends around the city, and we spend a very good time. Me and all of my friends bought a few of their beautiful carpets which not only decorate the house but also always remines me about this wonderful experience I got meeting such nice people.
    First of all, we would like to thank you for your kindness and sincerity. We always try to offer the most friendly and sincere environment, and we try to deliver quality service to our valued guests like you. And most of the time, we turn into a relationship that contributes to friendship rather than contributing to decoration from a Turkish carpet store. It was an honor for us to know you. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you for choosing us..

    Best Place to Buy a Rug
    Organ provided the best service and hospitality. Explaining all the different types of rugs so I could make an easier decision. He was always willing to help when I had other questions about where to go in Istanbul. I would recommend Ozcan and the team to anyone wanting to buy a rug. 5 stars.
    Thank you for your good thoughts. We will continue to work to offer the most suitable option in Turkish carpets to our valued guests like you. It is the most hopeful and empowering for us to receive such kind and pleasant feedback along the way. Thank you for choosing us.

    Excellent experience shopping here
    We had a wonderful time shopping here. They have beautiful rugs, but the sales team in this store are even more beautiful people ! It was quite an entertaining experience. We left satisfied, feeling that deal was done openly and honestly. They expertly arranged shipping so that by the time we reached home after our trip, the courier was ready to deliver to our home.
    Thank you very much for your nice thoughts, your kind approach and your positive feedback, which is as nice for us as getting to know you. We always try to offer the best quality Turkish carpets and Turkish rugs to our valued guests like you. Thank you very much for choosing us, for not leaving us alone on this road.

    An Enchanting Encounter: Rug Shopping with Özcan in Istanbul
    When my family and I visited this store, little did I know that we would spend the next hour immersed in the world of exquisite rugs and kilims. Özcan, a highly knowledgeable and respected individual, greeted us warmly, patiently addressed all our inquiries, and imparted fascinating insights into the history of carpets, various knotting techniques, color variations, and pricing. We eventually decided to purchase a carpet, and to our delight, Özcan extended the courtesy of delivering it to our hotel, sparing us the hassle of lugging it around as we explored the enchanting city of Istanbul. He even arrived with our purchase at 10:30 pm, still wearing his ever-present smile. I am truly grateful to have met Özcan and acquired this splendid carpet, which will forever evoke cherished memories whenever I gaze upon it in my home.
    First of all, we are grateful to you for your kind words and time. Receiving such sincere and pleasant feedback from our valued guests like you always makes us happy and motivated for the future. Our main duty is to always welcome you in the best possible way during your stay in our store and to present all products as clearly as possible, without any pressure and in a natural way. We are proud to see that we were able to achieve this. It was very special to meet you and chat with you, we hope to see you again soon. Thank you for choosing us.

    If you want a great carpet from a nice person go and see Nedim!
    This fabulous carpet store is a half a block from the action but worth the journey. Nedim, the shop owner is so pleasant and works very hard for his customers. His selection of carpets was stunning and he kept dragging out new one to show us while we drank apple tea. We shopped around and he had the best prices but equally important he was honest about what he was selling and so knowledgeable about each type of carpet. My friend and I each left with a carpet nicely wrapped in bubble wrap and in its own carrying case. He also explained how to easily care for the carpet so it lasts forever. He would have shipped it home for free but I wanted it with me. Even though we bought our rugs he would greet us every time we walked by his store and gave us more green tea. We left Istanbul with not only beautiful carpets but a memorable experience.
    We are grateful for your kindness and kind thoughts. We always work to provide the best service to valued guests like you. Expressing the highest quality products in the most accurate way is not always limited to a Turkish carpet store. Most of the time it reaches the level of friendship. We are very pleased to get to know you this way. Thank you for choosing us.

    Absolutely excellent and unparalleled experience
    Alfombras de Estambul is without a doubt the best rug store in Turkey, and probably the world. And Erdal (Eduardo) is as knowledgeable an expert as one could imagine, not to mention his natural courtesy, helpfulness and even charm. I very strongly recommend this store for the highest degree of service, knowledge, hospitality and assistance in any area, (not just rugs). You’ll enter the store as a customer, but will leave as a friend feeling as if you had just visited a close relative. If in Istambul, don’t miss it ! You will not regret it!

    Sending Love from USA!
    Wonderful place, warm and welcoming people, Kenan is amazing person. I enjoy my new luxury silk carpets everyday. I demonstrated the magic color change of your carpets to my friends. It was so funny to see their faces. They could not belive their eyes and kept saying "How is it possible?!" so many times))) I hope to come backto see my new friends at the store and get more carpets. I highly reccommed to visit this place if you happen to be in Istanbul.
    First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to share your nice thoughts with us. This is not just a rug store that tries to provide quality service, but also a family-friendly place where you can chat, exchange culture. We are very happy to have met you in this way and to have been able to introduce ourselves well. We hope we can meet again as soon as possible. Thank you for choosing us.

    Wonderful Carpet Purchase
    Kenan and his business partners were so welcoming of us. We were shown each and every Turkish carpet so that we could find the most unique one for us. All three of my friends and I bought a carpet for us to take home— it was a truly wonderful experience and I would recommend this store to anyone.

After visiting several carpet shops in Old City Istanbul, we found that Alfombras de Estambul was one of our favorites. We really appreciated Nedim’s friendly and sincere manner. Always helpful yet not pushy, he was very patient as he presented many carpet options until we zeroed in on our favorites. We are not new to Turkish carpets, or the process, as we acquired several on our first trip to Turkey more than 20 years ago. Therefore, we checked out 10 or 11 other shops but returned to Alfombras to make our purchases. Not only were we impressed with Nedim’s attitude, but his pricing was quite competitive and he even included in a bonus for us.
We look forward to returning to this shop on our next trip to Istanbul. Thank you, Nedim!

What can I say… you simply have to visit if you are in Istanbul. It’s just two minutes walk from the Hagia Sofia. We spent over an hour chatting (and laughing lots) with Kenan over gorgeous apple chai. There is no hard sell, and if after you decide you don’t want to purchase you don’t have to and they’re so kind with that too. Kenan’s knowledge was INCREDIBLE, and I mean mesmerising. We bought a gorgeous rug at a really good price, I know its whole life story and I can’t wait to get it home.
