We stayed 3 nights at Aruna and found the location excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Overall comment is that the place has faded charm with what was once probably very elegant furnishings. It is in need of some TLC however since much of it seems frayed and worn. I thought it was somewhat overpriced but very convenient.... More

After reading some of the reviews before we travelled we were hoping for the best but preparing for something less. In the end we were pleasantly surprised. The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk from the main attractions but down a quieter (for a major city) backstreet. The hotel itself is relatively small and decorated in an Ottoman style which...

After reading some of the previous reviews, we were skeptical, but the hotel and its personnel was a pleasant surprise. Excellent location. Professional and extremely helpful staff. Our room was quaint, authentic and spotless. The bed was in good condition and the bedding clean and pretty. I also enjoyed the breakfast, especially the freshly squeezed pomegranate juice and wide variety... More

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

This just a motel not really a hotel with starts no room cleaning unless you request, be aware they have bed bugs !! Look some where else; even though the location is good and customer service is nice people but not good enough to make this old Motel a hotel with starts!!

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...

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
