You can stop looking for a hotel in Istanbul right now. You've just found the most exceptional place to stay, the Arden City Hotel. Every person with whom we came into contact was unfailingly friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, Hasan offered us Turkish coffee and tea then gave us an overview of the area, talked about the various sites, and... More

At the risk of repeating what other reviewers have already said, the Arden City has to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. It is within easy walking distance (no hills) to the main sights and there are plenty of restaurants around too. The decor has a Turkish atmosphere, not ultra-modern and bland like some of... More

Istanbul was a excellent city and the hotel made the stay easier and more enjoyable. The trip started very well with the hotel arranged airport pick-up service - it was on time and the vehicle was luxurious. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by the staff and offered welcome drinks. We were delightful upon being informed that we'd... More

Istanbul is a fabulous city to visit and having this hotel as our base really made the trip extra special. The transport to and from the airport which the hotel arranged was excellent too. This hotel exceeded our expectations and we would definitely return to it on a subsequent visit to Istanbul.All aspects were steeped in friendliness, attention to detail... More

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. We had to move to the old city due to traffic problems. We picked this hotel based on other reviews. The room was comfortable and everything worked well in the bathroom. The wifi worked also - sometimes a challenge in a historic part of town. The food was good and the... More

Don't let the somewhat garish decor of the lobby deter you, this clean, well-maintained hotel is a fantastic home base for anyone wanting to explore the delights of Istanul. Its location in Sultanahmet is unparalleled, the staff was extremely helpful, breakfast is good, wifi is free, and the shower in our room was wonderful (large and with great water pressure!)....

We spent a long time researching where to stay in Sultanahmet and this place came up trumps. From the moment you arrive there is consideration and a sense of calm expertise - coffee/tea and a really informative lowdown on Istanbul. We just got the sense the staff - special mention to Hasan and Ulas - take real pride in their... More

Blue Mosque(Sultanahmet), Topkapi Palace,Hagia Sophia Museum, Yerebatan Cistern, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Hodjapasha Dance Theater, Sirkeci Station (Orient Express Fame).
