Avevamo prenotato tramite Expedia 4 notti presso questo hotel ma una volta arrivati siamo stati "ricollocati" presso un'altro hotel vicino (hotel Ararat ). Abbiamo chiesto spiegazioni e ci è stato detto che i due hotel fanno parte della stessa catena e sono equivalenti, cosa assolutamente non vera e facilmente verificabile guardando le foto su internet. Per noi fondamentale era un bagno spazioso e con doccia chiusa, motivo per cui avevamo scelto l'arasta hotel, ci siamo invece ritrovati un bagno minuscolo con doccia senza piatto ne tenda, semplicemente un rubinetto attaccato al muro. La camera era piccola, senza nessun tipo di armadio.

Breakfast and the Blue Mosque

Posted Aug 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
My husband and our two sons spent six days discovering Istanbul in mid August and stayed at the Arasta Hotel. Given its amazing location within minutes on foot from the Blue Mosque which constitutes the breathtaking view from the breakfast terrace on the fourth floor and Haghia Sophia and the Topkapi PAlace, the Arasta is very good value. More bed and breakfast than hotel, we found the staff kind, smiling and helpful. Ayhun on reception even took our boys off to the right cafe to watch some football match one evening and brought them back safely. The rooms are small but fine if you just want to sleep. Perfect for the tourist who wants to get out and see Istanbul .

Great location, ok hotel

Posted Jul 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel is steps away from the Blue Mosque which was very convenient for us since we were in town to sightsee. Hotel is ok, just the basics. Staff was pushy trying to sell us tours pretty much we went past the front desk. Given that the facilities are on the older side and the staff was a bit intrusive, all in all just an okay stay.
