I got great recomandations about the hotel. Order it as non refoundabale order. Two weeks before i arived my government publish terror allart and i had to cancel the trip. The hotel cancel the reservation with no charge at all. Great custoner service!!

It was a clean, nicely decorated little hotel. The view from the breakfast area was awesome. The front desk team was very helpful and neat. Private transwer was very professional and just 30 euros from Ataturk Airport. If it is your first time, definetly use it. The little garden was fantastic for a short break. Complimentary Turkish coffee with Turkish delight was very nice. I will definitely come back! All the best, Vanessa

We stayed only 3 days in this lovely hotel. The hospitality from the beginnig to the end was absolutely amazing. Special thanks to all staff! The breakwast was very very nice and had a good variety. You should talk to front desk to get their fantastic recommendations for daily tours. We also used the Turkish Bath and sauna in the hotel and it was so nice to have a private hammam experience. We will absolutely come back in the future. Thank you guys!

The room was wonderfully large and built with quality materials. We had an upgraded room with a couch that could be made into another bed. I liked the location sort of in a quiet area. I would go back. I loved the breakfast, especially! Rooftop view with great, interesting and fresh selections that varied a bit each day. Pigeons tapping away on the roof. The staff was very friendly. They didn't speak English as well as we would have liked, however, in order to figure out how to get around, but we did fine. Nice little boutique-type hotel!

If you need an accommodation which combines a good quality with a nice price in a central position, this is your choice. If you need luxury this is not for you. Very close to the most important attraction during the day. You may need to take a taxi to enjoy the night in Taksim.

This place is amazing. Its near the blue mosque, the hagasofia and bosphorous sea so they're all in walking distance. Amazing service, the receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. Delicious complimentary breakfast and the workers are very friendly. Its very clean and homey, and would definilty return here next time I visit Istanbul.

I hadn't high expectations before arriving but this tiny hotel is a hidden pearl. The receptionist carried my suitcase into my room and demonstrated whole hotel even it was quite late. So I was sitting on the roof terrace and drinking my cappuccino after long flight. Seeing there the Phosphorus with busy traffic i felt that Istanbul is the centre of the world :)

This hotel is a great option for those who want to stay in a Sultanahmet area and do all the major sightseeing in that area. Everything is within the walking distance and in a close proximity to public transportation. We chose this hotel because it was hard to find a hotel with the larger room that could easily fit the family of four, as most of the hotels are in very old buildings and have smaller rooms. So the room that we had at Aruna was spacious and the beds were comfortable. Aruna provides great breakfast and the staff is very helpful and hardworking. The only view we got was from the top floor where they have breakfast. You have to be very specific when you want your room to be cleaned and when you don't. We were told that hamam is extra $25 p/p although it wasn't in the description and you have to let them know ahead if you want to use it. Overall - very nice cute little hotel and we would definitely stay there again.

Excellent location, wonderful customer service and a very comfortable stay. It is very close to a great deal of things you may want to see while in Istanbul. I was very happy that I stayed here. The view from my room wasn't the best, but I wasn't in my room all that much and everything else was just great.

very clean and comfort hotel me and my family was there befor 2 weeks all people very nice Ms.Isebel the owner very kind and soft lady Mr.Nimek very pofessional manager and helpful also Ibrahim very nice person. recommanded.
