We arranged a stopover for 1 day in Istanbul on our way to Cameroon. Hotel was very prompt at responding to email questions and arranged for airport transportation, which made the arrival that much easier. We were greeted with delicious tea and they arranged for a baby crib for us when they saw we had a little one with us.... More

Well-appointed rooms (rooms and bathrooms were very clean with fresh clean white towels everyday), friendly staff all-around with a particularly helpful and informative reception staff, simple but fresh breakfast. We had the family room (for 3 persons) and the double (for 2 persons), and both rooms were spacious for the amount of people it was meant to accommodate (however, if... More

Our family holiday and stay at Aren Suites was fabulous. Perfect for family even those with small children. The hotel staff were very helpful and polite. Located very near to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. Certainly will recommend Aren Suites to future travellers! :-)

Excellent room, wide, nest, clear, with a wide bed and a sea view. Bathroom has a bubble bath. Hotel crew is very kind and available for any service, to reserve places for the dervish ceremony. To recommend.

This is a great hotel which is brilliantly located between all the major sites in Istanbul. The front desk staff were magnificent in providing assistance throughout my visit and really make you feel welcome from first setting foot in the hotel. The downstairs room must be one of the best deals in Istanbul.

I did a bit of research on hotels in Istanbul, and the criteria was fairly simple. Good location, good accommodation, reasonable price. This place has it all. If you want luxe, this isn't the place, but frankly, if you're situated between some of the most amazing architectural sites in the world, why are you spending time in your room, and... More

I enjoyed this hotel a lot for many reasons. The hotel is cozy yet very friendly--almost leaving you feel like staying at home or a family friend's. The staff took care of everything really well from taking your luggage up, showing you to your room all the way to get breakfast ready for you the following morning. The check-in staff... More

My friend had recommended this hotel and I was not disappointed. The location is perfect - 5 minutes from the historic centre yet quiet as it is in a side street. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was immaculate and very comfortable. Really enjoyed having an evening drink on the roof terrace looking at the sea... More

I was pretty excited to share my review about this hotel since its rare that a hotel makes me feel like they hit the marks on every aspect possible. First off, you are right in the city center with a 5 minute walk to the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque. Any closer and you can high five people as they walk... More
