Only a few steps away from the Blue Mosque stands Armagrandi Spina Hotel, beautiful location, and the view from our balcony it was breath-taking. Having said that, if you are a light sleeper, don't forget to take your ear plugs because at around 5 in the morning the calling to the mosque most probably will wake you up. The breakfast... More

Pros: Location, location, location! Cons: Limited breakfast selection, if this matters to you.... A nice, basic hotel in an amazing location. Literally a 2-minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia,a 5-minute walk to the tourist hub of the city and a the Sultan Ahmet tram stop, a 10-15-minute walk (or 2 tram stops) from the grand Bazaar and...

Location is, as others have said, perfect for exploring the old town. The hotel itself seems nice enough and the view from the terrace is lovely but 2 things let us down on our trip. Firstly we pre-booked an airport transfer to avoid the worry of arriving late at night and getting a cab in an unfamiliar city. No-one was... More

Location is absolutely brilliant the backyard is basically the blue mosque & Hagia sophia not even a 5 minute walk. A small hotel, fairly clean and nice rooms. Cost is also fairly decent. Service is good, so no complaints at all. I would definitely stay there again

It is just near by the Blue mosque and Haggia Sofia. With such a great location, the environment in hotel could remain quiet. I personally like the breakfast while my colleagues think it is just ok. Most rooms have a great view of the square between Haggia Sofia and Blue mosque.

The location is just excellent if you are looking to stay in the Sultanahmet district (near the Blue Mosque, Haggia Sophia, etc.). This hotel is around 1 block away from the Blue Mosque and two blocks away from the Haggia Sophia. It's on a small street next to these two landmarks. The view from their terrace is spectacular. Great place... More

We were referred to this hotel by friends of ours who had stayed here a couple of years ago. We were not disappointed. When we arrived late a night the first thing we did was go to the roof top terrace and were just amazed at the beautiful view of the Blue Mosque to our left and Hagia Sofia to... More

Upon my arrival to the Spina (I stayed there in April 2013 before moving to Istanbul in March 2014), they advised that they had committed an error on my booking and that I would be staying at their sister hotel for a night. They ordered a taxi and sent me to this other hotel (I cannot recall the name now),... More

Amazing location, right next to all the main attractions. Beautiful stylish hotel with breathtaking views from the terrace. Very clean rooms and breakfast was lovely. Staff were exteremly helpful at all times and made it a delightful stay for my husband, toddler and myself. Cannot wait to go back:)

Poorly managed hotel; everything lowest quality and too little of it (toilette paper, towels,...); very loud because it is so close located to the mosque; will never go to this hotel again, although the location is very good
