“Stylish, friendly hotel in centre of old city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Just spent bank holiday weekend in Aren Suites. Perfect location, walking distance from main sites, great shopping nearby. The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated and furnished and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. There's a terrace on the top floor with a view of the Blue Mosque, the sea and the rooftops - you're welcome to bring your breakfast up here and they'll also bring you wine or whatever you like, whenever you like. The breakfast was good and the rooms cleaned immaculately every day. Can't fault it.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. On arrival we received a very warm welcome and offered refreshments. Our room was very clean and comfortable with an excellent shower room. There is a great roof top terrace with brilliant views particularly of the Blue Mosque. Breakfast was basic but adequate and you could take a tray up to the terrace if you wished. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Book directly with the hotel rather than through a third party as they may be able to offer addition...

This is a lovely small hotel in a side street in Istanbul. It is perfectly located close to the cities major historic attractions and restaurants The hotel is 5 stories high with well located fire escape access. Our room no 503 had a wonderful sea view and above us was the sun terrace which gave a panoramic view of the coast. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with really good beds. Although the hotel does not have a restaurant there is an unbelievable choice within 10 minutes walk. The self-serve breakfast caters for most tastes and afternoon tea is available if desired. As for the staff they are friendly, helpful, efficient with a sense of humour.

Room Tip: Can only say we were in one of 3 rooms on the fifth floor and we were very pleased with the sea view...

Our group of 8 stayed at the Aren Suites Hotel from April 11 for 5 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and every one of us would return. The hotel is on a quiet side street which keeps city noise at bay. Rooms are very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. We all enjoyed breakfast and were impressed by the way dishes were kept topped up. The view from the roof terrace is simply breathtaking...how can you beat the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara? There is a good wifi connection so communication is no problem. All of the main sights of Sultanahmet district are only a few minutes' walk anthere are plenty of good places to eat close by. The most impressive aspect of this hotel has to be the staff. They genuinely care for their guests and will do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your stay. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent location: 5 min. walking from the blue mosque. Great room, excellent breakfast and fantastic view from the terrace on top floor where you can rest admiring the blue mosque. Good advice from receptionist.
