We have just spent 4 nights here with our 6 year old son & can recommend ares hotel, especially for the friendliness of the staff. It is only a few minutes walk from the Aya Sofia & Blue Mosque so is a great bolt hole, also surprisingly quiet at night. Comfy, clean beds; not a huge lot of space but... More

Had a great time during my stay in Ares Hotel. Good and central point in the city to see all the tourist attractions. From the rooftop terrace you have a great view over the city. Everytime I came here I enjoyed it very much. Great staff and decent rooms. All cozy atmosphere.. I would recommend this place!

However, the place has surly unprofessional staff and seems to be falling apart. When I visited it was during the cold, rainy winter of December. I expected it to be cold outside,... More
