i had a wonderful trip to turkey, i visited antalya, izmir and istanbul. I enjoyed my stay in ares hotel as it is perhaps the only hotel which is closest to Hagia Sophia and the most wonderful Topkapi Palace. Grand Bazaar is only a tram ride away from the hotel.

Excellent location of the hotel, Very close to all the historical places in istanbul. Had a room with a wonderful view of the hagia sopia. The tram is right at the doorstep. Topkapi palace, Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque and the museum all 50 to 100 meters away from the hotels vicinity.

We came as a group of 9 lads. Excellent for a budget hotel as near to all the attractions. Excellent service and very accomodating. Toilet does smell though even when it has not been used but apart from that it was clean.
