“Superb hotel at a great location - don't miss it!”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

We stayed at the Arasta Boutique Hotel for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it! At first I was very impressed by the professionalism of the communication we had through emails, so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed! The hotel is a small gem at a great location - just behind the Blue Mosque, very easily reachable by tram (3 minutes walk from Sultanahmet tram station). The rooms are spacious, very nicely decorated, brand new and really clean! Most of them have incredible view to either the Blue Mosque or the Marmara sea, but, even if you don't, there is always the fantastic terrace to enjoy these great surroundings! On the terrace you will also enjoy the delicious, homemade breakfast. The staff is very helpful and speak very good English. Special thanks to Tahsin, who is always polite and willing to help out with directions, maps, and guidelines for anything you may need!!!

Spent 3 nights there on a short city break and it was perfect place to stay. The hotel is really like a guest house - not many amenities within, but it does have incredible views, well decorated rooms, wireless internet, decent bathrooms - everything you need really.

Location is really hard to beat and the view at night of the Blue Mosque from my bed was stunning. Staff are helpful, breakfast (Turkish style) simple and fresh, and there is so much to do within close proximity. I would most definitely use it again.

Arasta Boutique Hotel - Stayed there four nights in the last week of June. I was with a party of six and we stayed in 3 of their 5 rooms. Great little hotel (more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel). It is fairly new therefore very clean and in good condition. My wife is very picky about cleanliness ... and it passed her muster. The rooms are fair sized and although not plush, are nicely decorated. I would compare them to a basic "Comfort Inn" in the states. Dynamite location .... right across the street from the Blue Mosque. Could look out our balconey and see the Blue Mosque and the Red Mosque. From the roof top lounge / breakfast area you can see the Blue and Red Mosques and the sea on the other side. Great central location ... the owner speaks english and is very helpful ... clean rooms .... and reasonably priced. I would stay there again.
