“Excellent Location”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

The hotel is centrally located right across from Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque (50 meters) and about 10 minutes walking time to the Grand Bazar. The hotel offers great value for money and the best location in the old town. Many restaurants are near by and the tram station is across the hotel so it is convenient kid you want to go to the Taksim area. As for the rooms they are clean and have all the necessary equipment air conditioner, TV, and free wifi. Friendly staff especially Kadir who will guide you to the best restaurants and will advise you for the best places to go shopping and save you a lot of money. I recommend this hotel if you are planning to do lots of sight seeing.

My friends and I had a lovely experience staying here. The rooftop is fabulous. You could see the panoramic view of the three important main attractions : ayasofya, the blue mosque and the topkapi. The entrance for cistern is just adjacent to the hotel.

Just like any boutique hotel, It carries its own charm . The hotel owner treats you like his own family.
Ask for Kadir, the receptionist, he will attend to your needs as much as he could.

For smokers, this hotel is for u. Breakfast is reasonably good. Basic and staying true to the turkish culinary.

This hotel is in the middle of Sultanahmet and so is close to all of the sites you want to see in Old Istanbul. Everything is in walking distance and if you want to go further, then the tram stop is just 5 minutes walk. The hotel's restaurant is excellent and if you want to go further afield, then there must be at least 50 other restaurants within a 10 minute walk. Prices are very fair and the rooms are very good.

A small but very comfortable hotel right in the heart of the oldest, historic part of Istanbul. Staff are friendly and more than happy to help. Tram stop within throwing distance of the hotel, and the view from the roof terrace is spectacular.

Very cozy, awesome terrace and the best location of all. Near Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. If you want to know the best of Istambul Ares Hotel is your choice. Everything is near, transportation, restaurants, shops and lots of great sightseeing places.
