We recently stayed in this hotel. We felt comfortable as soon as we walked through the doors. It's an ideal location for all the hot spots of Istanbul, with many restaurant, bars and shisha places close by. The added value has to be the roof top restaurant that has one of the most spectacular views. Furthermore, the staff members have... More

We stayed in Arden City Hotel Oct 3 thru Oct 9. When we checked in, the first room assigned to us was on the 3rd floor and faces the street. It was very noisy.

This hotel has a great location across sultanahmed area but their rooms are so small but very clean. It's near to the main location to visiting it. You can ask to upgrade your room .. unfortunately no balcony applicable.

We treated our adult daughter to a trip to Istanbul and booked to stay at the Arden City Hotel. What a brilliant decision. The hotel is in the heart of the old city, Sultanahmet, close to Aya Sofia (Sophia Mosque), the Blue Mosque, Hippodrom remains and just a few minutes walk to anywhere. It was absolutely terrific. We walked a... More

I visited Istanbul for the first time with my mother on wheelchair. I wanted a good decent "accessible" hotel close to all three major attractions in Sultanahmet. Arden City Hotel was wheelchair accessible and it has a working elevator. Please note that in Istanbul, all hotels are not accessible, so you need to ask before booking. Check-in process was smooth.... More

The rooms are alittle bit smaller than the photos in the website but it works for me .. surrounded by shops and restaurants.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
