This is a nice hotel. The rooms are comfortable, but small. The location is great. But what makes it special is the staff. They will do almost anything to make your stay enjoyable. From bringing you juice when you check in... to making any arrangements for tours, etc. that you could want... the people at the Aren Suites were professional, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the hotel just because of that.

We booked a room with a sea view (402) and stayed 4 nights. Aren Suites is just wonderful. Highly recommended.

1. Location: In the old town area of Sultanahmet and a short 10-15minutes' walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern, Tokapi Palace and Hippodrome. Superb location. Nowhere is too far from this hotel. I don't recommend doing this in the middle of summer but if you are up to it, you could walk a full circle to the Grand Bazaar, the Spice market and the Galata Tower and back to the hotel. Many good restaurants and cafes right outside Aren Suites.

2. Room: Spacious, clean and well ventilated. The bed was also very comfortable. The rooms with the sea views are recommended. Free wifi but few power outlets.

3. Breakfast: Fantastic. Both cold and hot items are available. Everything is delicious, especially the tomatoes! You can choose to eat at the cafe area in front of the reception or at the 5th floor terrace. The terrace is less popular in summer (temperatures are already hot at 8.30am) but it offers great views of the Hagia Sofia and the sea.

4. Service: Again, excellent.

There are many hotels located in this area and to be all honest, if you are looking for one with a good location, you won't go wrong with ANY hotel located in the same neighborhood as Aren Suites. But if we go back to Istanbul in future, my husband and I would still choose Aren Suites and the same room. Thank you for a great stay!

When we arrived to Istanbul, unfortunately our flight lost our baggage. We decided to head over to the hotel and wait for the bags to be delivered. The gentlemen at the front desk would call the airport every hour on our behalf to ensure that our luggage arrived safely. Without their help, we never would have received our luggage in time for our cruise that was leaving the next day. They took on our burden, like it was their own and went our and above to help us.
The location of this hotel is also excellent and I would recommend it to anybody.

Aren Suites is excellent located in the historic side of Istanbul, at about 10minutes walk from Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque.
The room is spacious, very good quality furniture. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall an excellent service.
The breakfast was continental, good quality products.
I would recommend Aren Suites for location, customer service, cleanliness of the rooms and the overall quality.
As many remarked the terrace view, I would add this as well as strong point with great belvedere over the two famous mosques and the Bosfor canal.

I love this little hotel. Rooms with sea view are very nice, but a little smaller than expected. While it was nice to have sea view from the room the terrace was were we spent our time to have a 180 degree of the sea and Blue Mosque. Staff wa friendly and helpful. The close proximity to the main sights allowed us to easily walk to historic sights. The hotel is in a relatively quiet neighborhood with convenient restaurants. I look forward to visiting again.
