Nice 3 star hotel, Great location

Posted May 19, 2016
The Aristocrat Hotel is in a great location if you want to see the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, (easy walk to both), and the popular tourist sights of Istanbul. The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Sharif el Sharif, the manager. The rooms are small but clean and nicely furnished, nice bathroom, not really a lobby(but you don't need one), and easy walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean basic room but adequate with a good bathroom and excellent powerful shower.The staff were friendly and helpful.Great location close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Buffet breakfast was good with scrambled eggs,bread and cheese plus jam and honey.There was also yoghurt.Sausage was also available along with the scrambled eggs but I can't recommend these Overall a friendly basic hotel in a great location

Friendly staff. Clean hotel. Value for money. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit the blue mosque, Aya Sophia, Topkapi Museum Grand bazar and many more historical places. All these are within walking distance from the hotel.

Horrible hotel but Manager was Good and helpful

Posted Mar 16, 2016 on Hotels
The only good thing about this hotel was the Manager Shareef. If he wasn't there I would have changed the Hotel. The room (room#404) given to us had a broken furniture. An other room had a horrible gutter smell (room#303) which was changed to a better room. I felt we were miss treated. We should have provided good rooms on the first place. Room # 404 with a broken furniture make this hotel below 1 star. Manager Shareef was awesome. He was always smiling and helpful. The cleaning lady was the worst. She doesn't even know how to clean the room. If you need a towel or something, she ask for the tip which is very weird. Hotel management needs to control this situation. I would suggest to replace her with someone else who could do better job. As far as the sightseeing is concern. The location is best nearby the blue mosque, Ayo sofia and many other surrounding sightseeing.

Perfect Location for Sightseeing

Posted Jan 21, 2016 on Hotels
My stay at this hotel was pleasurable. The bathroom and room were clean, and there was a lot of hot and cold option from the inclusive breakfast. Asides, the helpful and courteous staff, the major pro of this hotel is the location. It is right smack in the middle of all the major tourist attraction. The blue mosque and Hagia sofia is a stone throw away, while the Tokapi palace is a few minutes walk. If you are up to it, you can even walk to the Grand Bazaar, or take the tram which is a three minute walk from the hotel.

Not as expected.

Posted Dec 17, 2015
Pros: Great location
Cons: Outside entrance.
Location: All the tourist places are very close
The entrance is like entering a jail. They could make your first impressions more welcoming by remodelling the outside entrance. We were unpleasantly surprised when we reached our room to discover that it did not have the two king beds and one single that we paid for, nor did it have the two baths that was detailed on Expedia. This was not an oversight but deliberate false advertising on their Expedia listing, it was not that we "requested" the two kings and one single, it was a guaranteed reservation that we prepaid for, the staff did nothing to address the situation, but said to take it up with Expedia when we returned to Canada...which we did and were adequately compensated for. The breakfast was Ok, not great.

Good Location and Very Clean and Comfortable

Posted Dec 6, 2015
Pros: Very comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom, great location- especially if you are looking to stay near the main attractions of SultanAhmet areah
Cons: We were not completely impressed with the hotel staff- All were very happy and helpful, but not always there when needed.
Location: Right next to SultanAhmet, Hagia Sofya, Akbıyık Cadd.
We stayed here for one night due to an appointment nearby in Fatih district. The Hotel is almost at the front door of the Blue Mosque (SultanAhmet) and is near lots of cafes and restaurants, but doesn't have a problem with the noise level, fortunately. We arrived at 11pm and the door was locked, had to wait a while until the reception returned to the desk and the cleaning woman, extremely polite and happy, knocked on our door a few times in the morning to clean our room before we were ready to check out. Breakfast area was typical Turkish breakfast, easy and good. Overall we thought the room was extremely comfortable and clean the only problem we had was with the hotel staff, but that was only a minimal disturbance.
