Ararat is one of the best hotel I ever been. Rooms are tiny and very clean and the staff of the hotel is very nice. The hotel is closed to the Blue Mosque in a wonderful position for visiting Istanbul. Having a Turkish breakfast in the terrace just in front of the mosque is amazing!

Very nice hotel with excellent staff and very good breakfast. The room was very small (especially the bathroom), maybe they should categorize rooms about spaciousness other than view.
