Clean and modern rooms, good breakfast and nice compelementary teatime. Very personal and friendly service. The big rooftop terrace was als very nice. Only the the noise insulation is poor and you can hear your neigbhours and the outside.

Room Tip: Dont take a downstairs room

Great location, staff were so so friendly, always eager to assist. Lovely view from roof top. Nice breakfast. Free airport pick up if you stay three days. If you want to lie in in the morning don't have a room on the second floor because you might hear them setting up breakfast in the morning.

Room Tip: Best room is top floor as it would have a view. Other rooms fine.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The hotel is within walking distance to all the major sites. The rooms were clean, and quaint, and we enjoyed the breakfast (good selection of fruits, cheese, cereals and HB eggs etc) on the rooftop terrace that has lovely views including the Blue Mosque. My only constructive criticism would be that it is obvious that the concierge (front desk ) staff have their "favourite" (specifically restaurant) whom they work "alongside." I think it would be nicer and/or more enjoyable for guests to receive more accurate and a more diverse range of dining options which would ultimately promote the entire area not just sending business to one proprietor (not JUST the businesses of the pamphlets at the front desk) Just saying :)

We travelled with our 22 year old daughter and stayed there for 3 nights initially and then returned for 1 night at the end of our trip. The rooms were comfortable, clean and perfect for 3 persons. The breakfast was good but lacking variety and had no hot options such as eggs. The location provided easy access to all of the major attractions in the old town. The staff was excellent - very friendly and helpful at all times.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a view of the water. Corner rooms have more light coming in.

Very friendly and helpful staff! Rooms clean and tidy. Breakfast was fine.
Right in the old town. Magnificent views from the rooftop. We have been 4 days at this hotel and it was a pleasant stay! Thanks staff!

We were so pleased with Aren Suites that we changed our reservation to return at the end of our trip. The room was pristinely clean, pretty and light filled, with a little sitting alcove with a view of the water. The location is both convenient and charming. The breakfast buffet was the best we had anywhere in our 2 weeks in Turkey, with variety to please both a traditionalist and a gluten intolerant spouse. The rooftop terrace had a lovely view. The staff was OUTSTANDINGLY helpful and knowledgeable.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view.
