“Good value”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Very good service. Large clean room, hot shower. Room has TV and very good heating/AC machine. Located within 2 minutes walk of blue mosque and hagia sophia. Tram stop close by and easy to get around from there.
Manager very helpful in giving advice about restaurants and nearby attractions. Staff were very friendly and caring. Breakfast in morning provided. had fresh omelette and range if hot drinks. Balcony on terrace provides good view of the blue mosque. No complaints to be honest i would recommend to stay.

I led a group of university students and we had an amazing visit to Istanbul, with many thanks to Arasta Boutique Hotel. The hotel was ideally located near all of the great sights in a very nice (and safe) area. The breakfast room had a lovely view of Haiga Sophia and Sultan Ahmed. The rooms were warm and nicely decorated, breakfast was great but best (and most important as far as I am concerned) the hotel owner, Mr.Andreas, was always attentive and helpful in making the trip really wonderful. It really felt like 'home away from home' and I am already thinking of when I can come back to share with family and friends.

I stayed at this quaint, tasteful hotel as part of a group of 16 university students and we were accommodated perfectly. The hotel manager was very helpful and friendly and spoke very good English. He went out of his way to give us travel advice, help one of us retrieve our passport left at the airport, etc. The hotel's location across the street from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and a few minutes from the street car makes it a highly convenient location for tourists. An abundance of amenities are at your doorstep (restaurants, shops, cafes, Arasta Bazaar, etc).

The rooms were small but lovely and the temperature was perfectly warm in the winter. Noise was not an issue. The included buffet-style breakfast was delicious and abundant, and drinks were free. The price was also excellent. For 4 nights accommodation in a room for three (one double and one single bed) and a car to and from the airport, it cost me $100 USD. I would highly suggest this hotel!

Room Tip: 101 was great. Entrance right off of the lobby.

I stayed at this little gem on my visit to Istanbul as a solo female traveller. I felt safe and comfortable at all times. The staff was very helpful in helping me plan my time during my stay. The rooms are small but clean and adequate. The location of the hotel is fantastic. You are just steps away from a bazaar, eateries, the Blue Masque, the Sophia Hagia, entertainment, and more.

They hotel bedroom is a bit small but it is very clean. The location of the hotel is near to restaurant and it is just beside the Arasta Bazaar. The breakfast for me personally isnt that much maybe because it is just not my appetite. But all in all it is a good hotel with a very friendly service.

I spent the end of the year of 2012 in Istanbul. This is my second time in Turkey and Arasta Boutique Hotel. I stayed in the hotel with other 3 friends and we had an amazing service and stay. We booked the family room with 2 single beds and 1 double bed. The room has a decent size and modern interior. The location is the best with the mind-blowing view of Blue Mosque from our room. 24 hours shisha cafe is just 10 steps away from the hotel.

Andreas, the owner given us such a very warm welcome and was very helpful in assisting us to book the taxi, tour, and give advices. No doubt, I would say the price is worth it for the service.

I absolutely will stay in the Arasta Boutique Hotel, if I have a chance to go back to Istanbul and will recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful stay at Arasta Boutique Hotel... the staff was very helpful and friendly... the location and views from the terrace were magnificient, and the morning complimentary Turkish breakfast was delicious! Our only complaint was that our room (201 I believe) was very small... just enough to fit the Queen size bed... but other than that, we loved it here.
