Close to Sofia, blue mosque , metro and cistern .

Posted Aug 29, 2017
The hotel was below my expectations . Molds around the tub.Shower head leaking and were told that it will be repaired but never happened, TV didn't even worked. No telephone in room so you go down to desk to ask for toilet paper etc. staff 95 % of them didn't speak English. Food handling was unsanitary we ended up with GI problems. Wished Expedia see these places before you book your customers.

My constant choice

Posted Mar 21, 2017 on CheapTickets
The third time I stay at this hotel. The best location in the city, low price, friendly staff, good breakfast - all perfectly! Без дураков - за такие деньги и с таким превосходным локейшеном лучше в Стамбуле не найти, отличный вариант.

Nice people but outdated hotel

Posted Dec 13, 2015 on Hotels
While the hotel was in a great area, this hotel is outdated and needs help. I was there the end of October when the weather was cool. THe room they gave me had a draft. I complained that the heat was not working. The nice man at the front desk came to turn it on, but it never worked. At midnight I called the front desk, but no one answered so I put on every stich of clothing I owned. At 4 a.m. I went down to the front desk to wake up a man for a new room. He gave me a thin comforter and told me to check with the front desk in the morning. I did, and was given a room with a heater that eventually worked, but this was after trying about 6 rooms. The front desk people were nice, but when I asked for a refund, was told that I must contact the booking agency I used. THis hotel is in a great neighborhood, and has wonderful people, but if it is cold, I don't recommend staying here. The rooms are small and my rooms had a building backing up to them with no view at all.

The Best of Everything.

Posted Oct 24, 2015 on Hotels
As a disabled man on holiday this hotel was perfect, The Basilica Cistern is a 30 second walk, The Hagia Sofya and the Topkapi Palace are across the road. The Blue Mosque is a 5 minute walk, you get the picture, everything is on the doorstep. The food in the Ares Hotel is excellent, try the Turkish and Ottoman menu, you will be pleasantly surprised, also the Turkish breakfast is first class. I was given help with everything. The Ares Hotel is not the biggest or the most famous but it's the hotel that I will go back to because it is friendly, central, good food and very helpful, why pay more. I am looking forward to my next visit to Istanbul and my stay in The Ares Hotel, Sultanahmet.
