It is located in a very convenient place in the Sultanahmet area. Facilities were not working quite well. For example two of the lamps in the room were burned out and they did not fix them after I asked them to do so after the first night. Internet connection was bad and I had to go to the public place to really get connected. The place was not very quiet and I could hear sounds that other guests made. To be very honest, I don't think the room deserved the price but would deserve if they fix the above-mentioned problems.

Arena Hotel is really worth its price. The management and staff are all so efficient and helpful and the hotel is located walking distance to all the monuments, even to the bazaars, and the seaside. My daughter and I got upgraded to the hotel's suite room and it was magnificent--very roomy, very comfortable and luxurious, with sea view. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Very good value!

Rooms are small but clean. The location is great if you need an accomodation close to the major attractions of the city such as the Blue Mosk and Haghia Sofia. Prices for the accomodation and in the restaurant are quoted in euros, not in turkish lira, so this makes prices expensive compared to other restaurants where prices are expressed in turkish lira considering the current unstability of this currency. The breakfast is excellent as well as the restaurant and food is well presented.
