The hotel is in a great location for seeing the sights in the Sultanahmet district. Friendly helpful staff. Rooms were clean. Buffett breakfast included. Beware there is no elevator. 5 flights of stairs to our room but did have great views. There is no kettle to boil water for tea or coffee.

Hello! I want to say thank you for all staff in the hotel. They are very friendly, polite and nice. They help us during all our wonderful trip to Istanbul. Good location to all sightseeings (around 5 minutes on foot to Suleymaniye Mosque). Beautiful view from canteen. It is very good choice for trip to Istanbul with good price.

The hotel is only 10 minutes away by walk from the Sultanahmet square (Hagia Sophia/Blue Mosque) and there are many restaurants/bars nearby. Since we visited in the off-peak season, we were able to negotiate a cheap price; might otherwise have been priced out of staying here. The hotel has an excellent rooftop view where we had drinks a couple of... More

I stayed at Blue Tuana for 2 weeks whilst I was working at the Istanbul Kulturi University. The staff were superb, very friendly, the hotel was always clean and warm. Following the end of my project, my wife joined me for a 4 day break. The location was excellent, within walking distance of the "must sees", and close to a... More

We have stayed in several other B&B's located in Sultanahmet in past years; this year we chose to stay at Blue Tuana Hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately we were disappointed, the staff were friendly & helpful however the building is tired & several aspects are in need of R&M. The bathroom especially could do with some TLC.... More

Great value B&B located in a quieter area minutes from all the Sultanahmet attractions. Excellent tram connections to the ferries and to the fleshpots of Beyoglu. Our second time here and would definitely use it again.

This hotel is a gem located in the heart of Sultanahmet. While the rooms are lovely (but small) and the central location is notable, what really makes the Blue Tuana a gem is the amazing roof-top terrace with panoramic view of both the Bosphorus Sea and the stunning Blue Mosque. We first discovered the terrace at breakfast where we were... More
