“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. We had to move to the old city due to traffic problems. We picked this hotel based on other reviews. The room was comfortable and everything worked well in the bathroom. The wifi worked also - sometimes a challenge in a historic part of town. The food was good and the roof top bar offered great views. The front desk staff was very helpful with transportation and directions. Be careful if you are grabbing a cab on your own in this area - not all the taxis are honest with their meter!

Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it if you want to stay in this area - as it's very convenient to walk to Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace , Blue mosque or the grand bazaar.

Stayed May 2015, traveled on business

Arden City Hotel is exceptional in every aspect.... Our stay was one of the best experiences we have ever had... We travel very often and we were very impressed. By this hotel...Hasan our guest relations supervisor was outstanding... Hasan along with the rest of the staff catered to our every need and made sure we were completely satisfied with everything at all times. The rooms were exceptionally clean and beautifully done. The food was delicious and the location was perfect... thanks to Hasan we now have a great friend to visit when we come back to Istanbul!!!!

We Highly recommend this hotel to others!!!!!

Don't let the somewhat garish decor of the lobby deter you, this clean, well-maintained hotel is a fantastic home base for anyone wanting to explore the delights of Istanul. Its location in Sultanahmet is unparalleled, the staff was extremely helpful, breakfast is good, wifi is free, and the shower in our room was wonderful (large and with great water pressure!). I highly recommend this hotel.

We spent a long time researching where to stay in Sultanahmet and this place came up trumps. From the moment you arrive there is consideration and a sense of calm expertise - coffee/tea and a really informative lowdown on Istanbul. We just got the sense the staff - special mention to Hasan and Ulas - take real pride in their jobs & city. The Arden is at the epicentre of all the attractions, superbly convenient for a pitstop between Grand Bazaar, Bosphorus trip, Blue Mosque etc, , rooms very comfortable ( admittedly influenced by upgrade but always worth asking), breakfast tasty and the people working there could not have been better. Thanks to many other visitors who recommended it - we agree 100%

I choose this hotel for a weekend break to explore Istanbul and was so glad I did,
I was welcomed with complimentary Turkish tea or Coffee, and One of the staff came and sat with me and gave me some advise about what to see, opening times, where things were, gave me a map etc.... this was a really nice touch and very helpful.
The room was amazing with everything I could want.
The location was great, just a few minutes walk from some of the amazing sights of Istanbul, Breakfast was brilliant with plenty of choice, and all through my stay the staff were extremely helpful & friendly.
I highly recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again.

You can't beat the location Nine major attractions of Istanbul are 5 to 10 minutes walk. Blue Mosque(Sultanahmet), Topkapi Palace,Hagia Sophia Museum, Yerebatan Cistern, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Hodjapasha Dance Theater, Sirkeci Station (Orient Express Fame). The Hotel provides a great buffet breakfast and and If you are still hungry you have a choice of Ardent Hotel's own Restaurant or hundreds of Restaurants within walking distance. The staff including Management are very courteous , helpful & always smiling . Buy a 3 or 5 day Pass for the attractions, It will save you time and money. We will definitely stay in Ardent Hotel again. Mike and Ghezala Zafar.

Room Tip: Corner units are great

The welcome we received on arrival was great. The staff on reception were helpful sorting out a guide to lead a walking tour for the day. They also told us of a good local restaurant to eat dinner. The second night we booked dinner in the hotel which was a set price with choices of each course. - great food. Breakfast was a self service buffet with lots of choice. Our room overlooked some of the famous tourist places. We were close to Hagia Sophia in one direction and the Grand Bazaar in the other. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was called Hagia Sophia and it had a balcony which was great and was larger than some rooms...
