I had room 403 which was an attic room with very low curved ceilings and a tiny porthole style window which I could bearly see out of. I kept bumping my head on the ceiling. I understood that my reservation for a standard roon was made fairly late so accepted the "last offering" room but when value for money is considered, I think the room was very overpriced. Other rooms appeared to look fine.
Great reception desk assistance and help with tourist attraction sights...

The only downside was that our room was on the lower level by the road, which made it a bit noisy.
The location was perfect for our visit. Breakfast was tasty and had a good selection. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was large and beds were comfortable.

The Spa service. It felt too short and incomplete for the money I paid.
I liked the location, staff and traditional Turkish style ambience of the hotel.

Excellent location, within walking distance of all the main sights. Helpful staff, excellent breakfast, comfortable room. It would be hard to think of a better choice for visiting Istanbul.

We had booked a suite which on arrival we were told was not available. This was a great disappointment. However to be fair to the staff they did try to resolve the situation and sent fresh fruit and wine to our room as a gesture of good will.
The Staff and the Family who own the Hotel were a delight. Very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and very good. The location was excellent.

February 17, 2015
the hotel was undergoing a substantial refurbishment, the lounge had workmen in it most of the day, the bar was closed during our stay and we had to walk on bubble wrap past pots catching water to get to our room.
the rooms were very good , plenty of space and all the comforts of home.

Nothing, everything was fine.
The hotel ist not so big and luxury, more familiar and charming, as we like it. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the location is close to the most important spots of the city, so we could could walk there and also the room was very clean, light and silent. We enjoyed the stay very much!!

The excellent location, close to the main sites and tram to other areas of the city. The friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. The lovely, generous breakfast. The spacious triple bedroom (roomy and comfortable, even though we were a family of four). The beautiful, late Ottoman furnishings. It was a pleasure to sit in the lounge area, reading, in the evenings.

Rooms were reasonable but dinner was a bit pricey though good.
Small hotel in excellent proximity to major museums and mosques. Friendly staff And good breakfasts.

Bottled water are chargeable. For me it's too cheap, cost only 1TL, but can make your guest feel bad
Location is excellent, walking distance in every area of Old city. This family run hotel is always give you warm feel. All crew are treat us like a family. Old building but decorated like five stars. Choose the new building for better room. I stay at 1st and 3rd day of my trip in Istanbul, 2nd day we went to Bursa and all our luggage are kept with them without problem. They can arrange any tours and airport transfer. They can suggest own trip also like a local. Thanks to Zeinep and Aisha

The wi-fi was a bit slow, but that's a minor quibble.
The staff were very friendly, the room was beautiful, the whole hotel had a very pleasant look to it, the breakfast was good, and the location was excellent.

Arena staff were all wonderfully attentive and went out of their way to make you feel comfortable,as you would feel in your own home. We had a wonderful stay,would return if ever in Istanbul again By the way, breakfast was fantastic!

Breakfast was fine, but could use a little upgrade.
I was there with my husband and my mother. We stayed in 2 large comfortable rooms. We had a very nice stay and were very well attended by the kind staff who accommodated all our needs. Aysen in particular was extremely efficient and was very helpful to us. There is a very warm family feel as though you were in someones home which is very nice.

Some of the rooms in the new wing have a glass wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom. It looks cool, but doesn't give you much privacy. However, service minded as they are, they changed our room immediately after we complained.
Had a great stay. Rooms are nice and clean, and the location is perfect. The staff was very service minded and friendly. This is my second time at the Arena hotel and I would choose it again if I come back.

Small rooms. Not enough space for more then one suitcase, everything was a tight fit. Shower stalls were small as well, difficult to maneuver in.
Good location close to the Hippodrome. Situated on a side street with nearby restaurants and shops. Staff spoke English and were friendly and professional answering all questions and assisting with travel plans and arrangements. Decent breakfast buffet but looked like powdered eggs and there was an extra charge for fried eggs.
