Arden Park Hotel

Reviewed May 11, 2013

A major plus for the hotel is the location is walking distance to the tourist sites.

Also, we thought the hotel provided good customer service as they recommended a good Turkish dance show to attend, arranged our ride to the airport, and still gave us sandwiches for breakfast because we were checking out too early to attend the normal breakfast.

The hotel room was nice, but too small because there is not enough room for a large suitcase. The bathroom was very good since it has been remodeled.

The major disappointment was that we had a poor night's sleep because the hotel guests in the adjacent room came in very late and talked loudly for over an hour. We could hear every word of their conversation although it was in a foreign language.

This is a great property located about 3 min from the Basilica Cisterns, 5 min from Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque and about 8 min from the Grand Bazaar. The rooms were very clean and quite well equipped but certainly on the small side. They also had a great roof terrace with amazing views.

If you like seafood there is a restaurant just 20 mt down the road (turn left when you exit) called Sultanahmet Fish House that is simply amazing.

Appart from being very well located, at the very heart of Sultanahmed, and appart from some staff (not everyone) being very kind, the experience was bad. I spent two separate periods during one week. The first time the room was tiny, I had almost no space to drop my suitcase. The room was noisy, and in poor condition. Plenty of things were broken (wall lamps, hanger, ...). The second time, the room was bigger, but the heating was not working (and it was a but cold at night). The breakfast was really poor, in a separate building, inside an underground room.

The hotel was great with an amazingly friendly and helpful staff. Shuttle service they arranged was great. Breakfasts were a substantial buffet in the sister hotel next door. Location was first rate on the doorstep of the blue mosque and Haga Sofia and an easy walk to the grand bazaar and Galata bridge.
The rooms were small as indicated by other reviews and a few well placed hooks for hanging jackets etc would be a great improvement.
All in all, very good value for money and we would definitely stay there again.

Came for 3 days for my honeymoon and had a great time.

Staff are excellent. Very polite and always smiling especially a lady who works in the day at the front desk called Ahoo. They sent us a complimentary fruit basket and also they gave us a free hour in the sauna and turkish bath. It was amazing and very private.

The location is unbeatable. Saved a lot of money on transport as you can easily walk to the blue mosque, hagia soffiya, topkapi palace and the grand bazaar.

Rooms are a bit small but very well presented and also very clean.

Breakfast is delicious.

It was our first trip to Istanbul and this hotel was a perfect choice. Reasonably priced, in an excellent location a stones throw from all the sites, clean, comfy beds and a well stocked continental breakfast. There is even a hammam in the basement ( Turkish bath ) I really recommend the Turkish massage ! The staff were helpful and polite. I mentioned a problem with our TV and it was fixed the same day whilst we were out. People on this site have complained about small rooms. Ours was not vast but quite adequate and certainly nothing to complain about. I would definitely stay here again.
