    We really enjoyed staying at Arife Sultan Hotel. The owner, Yusuf, and the personnel are very hospitable, funny and helpful, the rooms are nice and tidy, the hotel is within 5 minutes walking distance of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. Last, but not least, you can have your breakfast on the rooftop terrace with a wonderful view of Sultanahmet and the Bosphorus. All in all, a very good experience!

    The location is great! It's in the old town at the 5 minutes walk from Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque). Tram station (Sultanahmet) of T1 line just two minutes walk, so you can use it when you go to/from airport (you have to change line only one to M1). There is a roof terace entrance on the 4-th floor but sadly it's not in use for breakfast or whatever, however it opens a great view on Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The room was not so big but convenient and has enough space for two of us with medium sized suitcases. Might be a problem when your luggage is big. Room was clean and it seems that newly renovated and furnished. Despite the street is small, it full of restaurants, cafes and bars, but it was not a problem in the nights as we were on 4-th floor and most of cafes are closed after 11-12. BTW, you might be woken by roosters in the morning! Staff is very friendly and gave a good service.

    The breakfast is very modest and served right in the front desk, so we consider it incomfortable and desided to have it outside. Fortunately, lots of eateries at that district and you would have only one problem - with your choice

    Location and the fact that the rooms were clean

    Very nice hotel. Rooms are small but clean and cosy. The linens and towels are so white. Location is perfect. Special thanks to receptionists who was on duty on 14.08.2012-17.08.2012 :)

    We stayed for 5 nights, the location was perfect with the Sultanahmet tram station round the corner. The greatest asset of the hotel is the owner and staff who work to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They are a wealth of information on the dos and donts of the city. If you are looking for souvenirs of your stay in Istanbul, then you are in luck since the owner as 4 shops in the Grand Bazaar. Normally I would be turned off by cross selling, but in this instance his prices were very reasonable and I don't enjoy the bargaining process anyway.

    Room was a cozy fit for a family with a 3 year old. Roof terrace will be perfect for breakfast once the owner gets permit approval, at time of stay breakfast was in the lobby area.

    My stay at Arife Sultan was amazing! I travelled to Istanbul by myself, to celebrate my big 30th birthday, and Yusuf, Mustafa and Arife had a big part in making the best birthday celebrations of my life! The service was excellent, hotel perfectly located and basically the whole area became like a little family for me. I will definitely stay in Arife Sultan Hotel the next time I'm in Istanbul - hopefully very very soon!!!!!

    Very friendly small and personal hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would stay again. English speaking manager on the lines of Rene from "Allo Allo" made me laugh and was helpful in advising on Istanbul card/exchange/directions. Breakfast was very good including hash/hash which was delicious but never got to the bottom of the receipe!. the double act team, waiter/receptionist was friendly and humourous. The cleaner, arzut was very friendly and efficient/ double bed with cotton bedlinen The owner got me a cake/pressies as it was birthday whilst i was there. Overall great safe location with roof terrace overlookings mosques and bosphorous good. Highly recommended!

    This is a nice small hotel located right in Sultanamet area. It is located on the road parallel to the main road Divan Yolu Cd (Sultanamet tram station is only 2 minutes away). Our main receptionist Mr Yusof speaks good English and is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is 4 floors high and has an elevator (no problem with our heavy luggage). It has free WiFi which is very fast. The TV is satelite so you can enjoy English and International channels. The rooms are nice although a little small. Bathroom is spacious. Breakfast is adquate with cereal, sausages, cheese. This hotel is well located within the Sultanamet area with walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Basilica, Hagia Sophia and the Galata bridge.

    Rooms are a little small but manageable.
