I stayed at this hotel in March. It is located very close to Aya Sofia (5 min walk) and the Grand Bazaar (10 min walk). There is paid parking near the hotel - 20 lira per day. The hotel interior is very nice Turkish style, but the rooms are small. 6th floor (last) view is very beautiful. Very hard to... More

Arden City Hotel is a beautiful Boutique Hotel, close to all the sites and Grand Bazaar (5 minute walk). Room was very clean and fresh towels provided every day. Room 303 overlooks cobbled street, shower was huge. Breakfast was plentiful and very good. Hotel staff very polite and friendly. Would recommend this hotel.

A friend of mine chose this place for a two-day short trip for our party of six. He couldn't have done better. The hotel sits in the centre of vibrant Sultanahmet with Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque just a five minute walk away. If you don't have lots of time, this advantage is nearly priceless as you... More

We stayed here for 7 days as a group of three; my wife and myself in one room and a friend in another. The rooms were large by non-North American standards. The mattress was extremely hard, so hopefully you are into that. One thing that was annoying is you need the room key to turn on the light, meaning if... More

My overall experience at Arden was very good. The rooms were a tad small but were clean. The staff was very courteous and helpful. There is an included breakfast buffet which isn't the best, but is decent considering it's free. The location is a stone's throw away from some of the major tourist attractions including the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia,... More

Me and my friends stopped by just for a drink in the restaurant at the rooftop, and man, what a view. Very good location, in the heart of the old Istanbul, near all major tourist sites, and very pleasant atmosphere. Also the staff is very nice. But one thing that makes this restaurant very, and i mean very enjoyable is... More

We stayed in this hotel with the whole family (8 persons). The location is great, just around the corner of Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, etc. . Also there are many restaurants and bars nearby and you will definately find something you'll like. We payed aprox. 80€/night for the room incl. breakfast. Even though the rooms are... More

The hotel is located right in the center of the Sultanahmet, two minutes walking distance to Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern. You can expect basic breakfast, with huge selection of cheeses. Rooftop restaurant with superb views across the Bosphorus and Sultanahmet is definitely great advantage for this hotel. Service in the restaurant was excellent. However service at the reception was... More
