No words to describe the level of service of the Arden City Hotel staff. They were willing to help and make you feel comfortable even before we arrived. Stayed twice in July 2015. They wrote us an email days after reservation and helped us arrange transportation from and to the airport. We arrived a day later than expected Because of... More

Found this hotel on Tripadvisor for our post-cruise stay in Istanbul. Nice area near the Hiya Sophia. Lots of restaurants and shops right outside. Manager/owner met our group of six at check-in and offered us tourist advice over tea and cookies. Nice rooftop restaurant and lounge with view of the Blue Mosque. Good wine choices and other adult beverages in... More

We arrived from a long haul flight into this lovely hotel, to be met with an upgrade for our 5 night stay, my daughter who was staying for two nights had arrived earlier and was upgraded to the room next us! We had amazing views towards the Blue Mosque and over to the Bosphorus sea. We walked everywhere because this... More

I highly recommend the Arden City Hotel. This was my first trip to Istanbul and my sister and I had a wonderful time. What makes this hotel really special are the people at the front desk. They are very friendly and did whatever was necessary to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They provided maps, directions, and... More

Staying here since the last four days. Very centrally located near a number of historical sites. Staff is cooperative and ready to help in arranging trips with good recommendations. Beware of Turkish taxi drivers they can cheat very easily. I had read before that they can change your higher denomination dollar note to a one dollar note. Like you give... More

I've stayed at Arden twice now, once in the summer and again in the winter. The staff is very kind and speaks great english. The rooms were clean, quiet and nice. They have fast wifi. The breakfast buffet is fresh and delicious! The location is great! The bazaar and spice market are a 5-10 min walk. Mosques, restaurants and boutiques... More

Stayed in late May 15. Small hotel right next to major attractions. Staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable. Thanks to Olash and Hussain for looking after us. They even gave me a Istanbul travel card so I could get on the trams. Greet hotel if you wish to leave after breakfast and explore the city and attractions. Although rooms are... More

This hotel has a very central location in the heart of Sultanhame! Nice terrace on the roof with magnificent view of Aya Sophia and The blue Mosk. Many interesting places to visit at walking distance. Very good restaurant on the terrace where they give you a blanket when it gets fresh. Very nice rooms! But the best part is the... More

Our family of three stayed here for four nights in early July. The hotel is a 20 minute ride from the airport and then a left into one of the gates to the Old City. When the Turks say "old" they mean really, really, really old. Arden City Hotel is located in the center of all of the major sites--it... More

Just returned from a visit to Istanbul. Stayed at this wonderful hotel. Location was great in that we could walk to all the old town sites. Staff was very helpful. Had one small problem (don't stay on the 6th floor if you are light sleeper) that the staff handled with professionalism. They always greeted as with a smile and "Hello".... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
