Aren Suites staff and experience added to our amazing visit to Istanbul! Great location- near all the major historic sites. Outstanding sea view from rooms and the rooftop terrace. Kind and helpful staff. Highly recommend.

We were so pleased with Aren Suites! We were in a family suite which was spacious for 2 adults and 2 kids (9 & 7). The room had a sea view and we loved using the rooftop terrace to place backgammon/chess/checkers, to eat breakfast, or just to enjoy our afternoon snack offered by the hotel. Close to all the main Old Town sites to include shopping and great food. The front desk staff and the hosts were always so helpful and nice! Housekeeping did a really nice job keeping everything tidy. Nice family hotel and would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and a sea view. Corner suites are large and sunny.

Great location matched by service provided by staff. Excellent view from the rooftop. The rooms were nice and clean.

Only area to improve is selection of breakfast on offer.

Close to all the tourist attractions and easily within walking distance. Would stay again.

It's a small modern hotel within walking distance of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The neighbourhood is relatively quiet with few good restaurants near. The hotel itself doesn't have a restaurant but breakfast is available.

We had the superior room with a sea view. The room was air-conditioned and there also was a water boiler with complementary tea and coffee. There also were some complementary snacks in the lobby in the evening. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was equipped with a jacuzzi. Free WiFi was included.

All the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome.

I definitely would recommend this sweet little hotel. It is quite a benefit to be able to walk to all the major sites in the old city. The staff were terrific-- helpful and friendly. They sent a car to the airport to pick us up and helped us arrange taxis whenever we needed one. Rooms were comfortable, bathrooms just fine. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is a friendly and convenient place. We stayed on the fifth floor and had a view of the Sea of Marmara.

Room Tip: Rooms on the fifth floor have great views.
