We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is very close to the Blue Mosque, other historical sites and main road. The area around the hotel has some lovely restaurants for meals. The rooms are small. But are neat, very tastefully done and reasonably priced too. The breakfast menu has a wide variety (veg options are limited) The... More

Stayed March 2009. Great hotel, centrally located, only 10 min walk to Grand Bazaar, 5 mins from Sultanamet. Very clean, adequate sized rooms, exceptional friendly staff. Breakfast basis, but good enough. Would stay here again.

We stayed in Arden City in April 2013 for 4 days. Location is great, close to all main attractions of Old City - Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar etc. Everything is walking distance that is priceless in Istanbul with its awful traffic. We stayed in Suite with the view to Hagia Sophia. The view is absolutely stunning.... More

Bad room cleaning, unfriendly staff, water leakage, too small room. Complimentary coffee, tea and sugar bags are not refilled on daily basis. Baby cot was provided four days after check in. Bath room has no ventilation, which makes it humid and smelly. I was rudely asked to leave the room half an hour before check out time. I felt like... More

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
