Small but complete
on Dec 25, 2017
We stay for 2 night during winter 2017. It's a small with 1 queen and 1 single bed but comfortable for both of us. 5-10 minutes walk to Sultanahmet mosque and tram station. The receiptionist really nice, they let us in even we are early. Bathroom inside. 1 kettle with 2 set cup. 1 mini fridge to keep your foods fresh. They prepare a towel and toilettries for the guest. Most importantly it's really affordable!
Hospitality "a la turca"!
on Nov 28, 2017
We were at Istanbul for the Marathon and I had chosen Arven Boutique Hotel after some personal recomendations as well as for the proximity to the venue and city's beautiful historic center.
A small and cosy hotel this is where the staff is extreme friendly and the rooms are spacious. We came across some minor issues, which can be found in any hotel, and where resolved quickly by the guys at the Reception.
We opted out the breakfast, but on another occasion we 'll give it a try since it can be brought to your room. Ask the Reception for more information.
If you travel with friends I would recommend high floor rooms at the back side of the hotel. The view is beautiful!
Thanks for the Hospitality Arven Boutique Hotel!
Homely experience in Sultanahmet!!
on Nov 24, 2017
Main reason for calling this a homely experience is because of the owner - Cafer, who makes you feel so welcomed with his warm and humble nature! He helped us with almost every tiny detail, starting from a smooth check-in to guiding us around the city with the best possible options and warning us about the ones that are not genuine. He also helped us with the best prices for Turkish Hamam, Capadocia Balloon ride, airport shuttle, food take away, etc. Also a special thanks to his colleague - Hikmet, who was also very kind and helpful to us :)
I would highly recommend this hotel amongst all options in Sultanahmet!! Overall, an excellent experience and would definitely stay here on my next visit to Istanbul (Inshallah)!! :)
Very comfortable stay at Arvin Boutique hotel in great locality.

After landing at Ataturk airport me and wife came straight to Arvin boutik hotel which just a small walk away from blue mosque and topkapi palace. Ideally located it had small but comfortable rooms to offer. Hot water, flat screen TV, daily room cleaning, free wifi and very helpful staff at the front desk. Daily complimentary Breakfast was provided at maritime hotel adjescent to Arvin boutik. Highly recommended for travellers who truly want to explore the marvels present at Sultanahmet district.
Perfect location and very nice staff
on Aug 28, 2017
We ordered a transfer from the Ataturk airport, so it took us about half an hour to get to the hotel. The location was perfect: the Blue Mosque was just in a five-minute walking distance. The Arasta bazaar was even closer. There were plenty of nice souvenirs to check out. We also had breakfast at the Elif cafe on the bazaar - simple, tasty meal for a fair price.
Many thanks to the hotel staff. They helped us arrange transfers from and to the airport, gave directions on where to go, warned us about Istanbul taxi, and showed the way to the terrace in the Mari Time hotel nearby with an amazing city view. Just visit the terrace to admire the sunset, grab some drinks, and you will have a perfect evening.
The room was small but with everything we needed for a 3-night stay. There were construction works nearby but this didn't disturb us at all. However, we spent most of the time exploring the city.
This hotel is the right choice for friends and couples who want to explore the treasures of the Golden Horn.
