Recent guest reviews

Overall it was a good stay. Positives: Very nice Hotel staff,everyone was very accommodating and kind. Hotel room was cleaned regularly. Fresh towels. Gave recommendations on where to visit. Helpful staff. Room was very cosy and had good layout. Lots of room. Negatives: Same Turkish breakfast everyday (understandable but could have switched it up a bit) Food was far too oily and bland (did not have sea food) I went when it was very cold and heating was not on sometimes or would be turned on late at night! Lots of talking from staff at night, hard to fall asleep. Overall good.

Great location. Close to all sites by foot or local transport. Very helpful staff. Nice food in restaurant but breakfast a bit boring - same everyday. Close to other highly recommended places to eat. Very clean. Would definitely go back. Late September and tourist trade very down - sad. Great people.

historical, Sultanahmet Cami, Aya sofya, tram, restaurants, Turkey hammam, you can go anywhere around Istanbul with hop in hop off bus close to this hotel. They also have a delicious food specially taste Kabbab. Friendly staff, cab help you and guide you. Very clean room and room service Prices are cheapest in that location Hotel Ares terrace very nice weekend Recommend to all

When i returned home. We stayed in your hotel for 4 days. And we really enjoyed it! The hotel was clean, plenty of space and next to the train station. In the future we will recommend your hotel to other people!"

i have visited this hotel for 7 days good customer service by mr ayhan and mr kaidir very helpful to show me shops and grand bazar the cleaning is good and its in very nice places near to the hagia sopha and blue mosque so i do recommends for tourist to book this hotel its very easy to get access in all directions . no english tv channels and some times no pressure water to get shower the only 2 negative point other wise i give 5 point.

The hotel rooms are average however bathrooms are tiny. No standard sockets so had to buy a connecter from turkey to charge our phones so remember to take a two pin connector with you. No English channels so couldn't use TV and wifii isnt the best at times. The cleaning is good however had to get clothes dry cleaned which is expensive. Same breakfast everyday however can buy lunch/dinner at the hotel which is useful. Staff are helpful and nice. The best thing is the hotel is not too far from ataturk airport and a lot of tourist attractions are nearby. Blue mosque, hagiasophia, museums, spice bazaar and tram is very close. A lot of resturant are close, pretty much all you need is there so very good location.
