    Perfect location for blue mosque. ”

    Our main objective was to visit the blue mosque and Ararat hotel is in a perfect location for that. You can hear the call of prayer from the hotel and it takes you two minutes to go and pray in the mosque. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is delicious. All the other main tourist attractions are also nearby.

    This is the second time I've been to Ararat hotel. The location is perfect if you want to be near the blue mosque, you can hear the call of prayer and it takes you two minutes to go and pray in the mosque. The rest of the main tourist attractions are also nearby. This hotel ticks all the boxes and I will book again whenever I'm in Istanbul.

    Good hotel to stay and center of the tourist area”

    The hotel owner Mr Ramazan is very nice and helpful person. Always ask if I need some information about the city and prompt with his feedback. Same attitude to all his hotel staff. Will definitely stay to this hotel for next visit or recommend friend for this hotel. Hotel location is right in front Blue Mosque and walking distance to Ayasofya museum ( 5mins) and Grand Bazar (15 mins). It also took about 25 mins to Charakuay (Spicy bazar) and Bosphorus strait. Fast food and Kebab Restaurant is also walking distance (15 mins) Overall I fully recommend this hotel where this hotel received 8.5 star travel award

    Very near the Bazaar and Blue Mosque! Other tourist attractions are walking distance as well. After roaming around the touristy part of Istanbul, I was able to walk just a comfortable distance back to my comfortable hotel. There are many restaurants to chose from nearby and you are really in the heart of it all. The rooms are clean and wifi is good! The staff was helpful in arranging transportation to the airport at various options.

    It was nice, the hotel is old and that's what we are looking for we choose to stay at Old Sultanahmet area. Room is quite small. No other facilities provided in the room except bed. Location is superb, the hotel is next to Blue Mosque so when we have breakfast, we had it when facing Blue Mosque. Other's interesting places are only within walking distance. A lot of restaurants nearby.

    narrow rooms about 4X2.5 meters ... very narrow toilet and shower room a very "basic needs" room ... contains only a bed - 1 chair - a unit beside the bed with drawer - some shelves with a chandlers to put your clothes on it ... to go up stairs is not easy ... narrow stairs over all ... its for sleeping purpose ... you can spend all the day in the city of Istanbul and come back at night to sleep

    great view, but no romance”

    location, view to the blue mosque and Marmara Sea

    The hotel is very centrally located near 'everything' in old town. The hotel is small, but cosy and with terraces with fantastic views. But that was actually the big problem for us. We had booked a 'room with a view' for a romantic night in Istanbul. The view was exactly as good as shown at the pictures, and the room was cute, but extremely small. We were not expecting a big room, but incl. the bathroom it was 8-9 m2: a tiny bathroom (where you had to slide in to sit on the toilet, as it was placed more or less under the basin), a floor area of 3-4 m2, and a queen size bed touching the wall on three sides - or rather on two sides + the window. The window was facing the terrace with the view to the mosque, and right outside the window was a bench - very popular with the other guests of the hotel who wanted to enjoy the view. So you were more or less sharing your bed with strangers sitting on the other side of the window! Add to that the restaurant right outside your door, where you could hear all conversations going on. As you can imagine, there was no chance of romance.

    Fantastic View of Sultanahment Mosque”

    Superb Location, Very Affordable and Fantastic View

    The hotel is not too small. It was very ok for backpackers. Uniquely decorated with paintings and the best part is the view. You will either get the Marmara sea view or the famous and magnificent Sultanahment mosque or famously known as the Blue Mosque. Many tourists attration nearby, restaurants, cafe, bank, tram and walking distance to the Grand Bazar, Ayasofya, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern. Highly recommended!
