This hotel is located just a few hundred metres from the blue mosque and sofia, making the location quite good. The staff are also good. Unfortunately the place is rather run-down. Our suite had a bed that was seriously in need of replacing. The room was musty, and the bath had mould around it. The ceiling above the small bath... More

A great small hotel suited for families and couples or singles. Staff were very friendly and hospitable, all questions asked were answered with a smile and assistance. We loved the food at the restaurant - especially the breakfast; it was plentiful and fresh. The staff at the restaurant were kind and helpful, clean and efficient. The staff at the Reception... More

We stayed here in December 2013. We stayed in room 206. The room was the perfect size, clean and quiet. This hotel is close to the sightseeing locations as it is about a 6 minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia but far enough away to allow you to get away from any noise. The staff were always... More

The hotel was very clean, staff was friendly, the free breakfast was great (esp because it was free), the location was okay, the prices were good. We stayed in a room for three, the rooms look a lot bigger in the pictures of course but they were still nice. We weren't interested in watching the TV or anything so no... More

This is our 2nd stay at the hotel. Overall, it was fine and the staffs overall were very friendly and occasionally helpful. Quite disappointing was the tv channels available via the satellite. It had limited English speaking channels - most channels were either in Arabic or Turkish. Would be nice to just have once or two English channels - HBO... More

Aruna Hotel was a great choice and offer transfers from the airport. The rooms are small but clean and cozy, the location is excellent and the breakfast was the best. The hotel has a Hammam which was awesome and the people r very friendly and helpful. I will stay there again.
