Very close to tourist attractions.
The hotel was close to everything and the staff was very friendly.
Location, helpfull and friendly staff.. thank you to Mr Raihan and Khalid.
Many Thanks to "JOSEPH" who was really so kind. I really felt at home "grâce à Toi Joseph :) " You are the "light" of ARES hotel. And everytime I go to Istanbul I will visit you and stay in ARES
This is my second time to stay at the Ares hotel, first time for business purpose and last time for leisure. This time I was with my mother. The personal of the hotel is very kind. The service is also excellent. I will recommend it too all my friends who are planning to visit Istanbul. Metro station is only minute by walk and it's easy to get everywhere in this beautiful town. Hope to be there soon again.
The only thing which wasnt good was the breakfast..everyday the same breakfast.no buffet so we couldnt choose what we want to eat .i was there for 13 days and everyday the samething.the friendly staff mr yusuf used to give us omelette on some of the days thats the good part.hope they change it.
I liked everything specially the friendly staff.it was a safe hotel.location was great.
Location was excellent with amazing views from the roof terrace. Room was spotless, warm and cleaned every day. Wifi connection was good.
Bathroom was very small, uncomfortable and dirty. Mold and black marks everywhere. No English TV channels. Staff rude. Restaurant overpriced. Go somewhere else.
I was less than impressed with the staff and facilities of this hotel, so couldn't understand how it is reviewed so highly. Then they offered me a discount on my current and future bookings in exchange for good online reviews. They essentially buy good reviews.
The comfort, convienience, staff and very practical place
444 channels and only one in English! The toilet sit is to narrow and uncomfortable.
Amazing staff, really helpful. The hotel has no view but the location is just right! Breakfast is good and te restaurant's food looked delicious.
Wifi wasn't good, cleanness in bathroom was poor, smell of tobacco in the morning
Good locating, friendly stuff, good price.
Wi-Fi very unstable. Prefer fruit & yoghurt at breakfast and not only a Turkish breakfast.
Location is the best. Very friendly & helpful staff. Good food. Pleasant atmosphere Beautiful view.
AWESOME Hotel. What made this Excellent was the Staff. Ayhan is top notch. reservation for hotel, room and Shuttle was perfect. Joseph and the kitchen staff were kind, helpful and polite. Simple beautiful Turkish breakfast of cheese, fresh vegitables, fruit was excellent. Free Wi-Fi was very helpful. Location was very nice- very close to Haggia Sophia. We ate in the resteraunt and loved it. Highly recommend this hotel for location and staff.
The hotel is comfortably located-only minutes away from all the major touristic spots. The price of it is a good surprise and the stuff are extremely helpful. During my stay it was Kadir,Ayhan,Yusuf. It was a nice experience.
Rooms are small with few amenities. In our room, the hall lighting and television were not functioning.
Although tricky to locate, the hotel is clean, with nice décor.This is an excellent jumping off point to see the major sights of Istanbul. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is adequate, in a very nice space.
Staff can be a bit pushy
The location of the hotel. Kadeer was very helpful.
rooms needed lots of maintenance but other than that great service
Close to every major attraction
rooms are smal, but we came to enjoy the city, not the rooms
perfect location, close to Hagia Sophia very friendly people, amiable service, helpful and flxible to guest needs, nice terrace, clean, offering all basic services
The only thing I do not like was Wi-Fi connection in the room. It was very unstable, though I could come and sit at the restaurant when I needed Internet. There connection is very good.
The hotel is very comfortable located - all the major attractions of the old city are right at your doorstep. The staff is very friendly and attentive to all your requests. I would like to particularly thank Yusuf for his warmth and hospitality - you feel like you visited your friends.
Their Wifi did not work, and they seemed to have given up on fixing that. Two power failures during our 4 day stay (one of about 10 sec, and one of about half an hour). I believe this was for the entire quarter.
Excellent location. Busy during the day but still quiet at night. Friendly and helpful personal. Rooms and facilities were basic but satisfactory.
-very small room, old furniture, old doors, flowing sink, old drilled linen -TV not working at all -poor breakfast (same every day): chees, boiled eggs, olives, butter, jam, cucumbers and tomatoes, instant coffee -the terrace from the roof was closed
-position: near Sultanahmed tram station(T1), near AyaSofia, Blue Mosque, Cistern and Topkapi palace; 1.5 hours from Sabiha Gokcen Airport (by public transport)
Other reviewers have already pointed out that the hotel is in an excellent location. We couldn't agree more. An elderly gent, with walking stick, was able to visit on foot all the major sights in Sultanamet . Added to this the hotel is above a narrow, traffic free street, filled with lively restaurants and cafes. The hotel rooms are small, and the wifi rather iffy, but these minor negatives were easily outweighed by the accommodating staff, especially Ayhan who, in English, helped sort out various tourist details for us.
The breakfast was not great and the room is definitely small and well worn. But totally acceptable for the price.
Location is excellent for a quick tourist visit and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Good price as well compared to others I was looking at.
- breakfast - friendly staff - you are right there in front of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia - a lot of restaurants around
Everything was perfect!!!
