The Blue Tuana is a short walk to Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, and the tramway, as well as a street of excellent restaurants. The rooms aren't large -- they're the typical size for older European hotels. Breakfast was excellent, on a terrace with million-dollar views of the Blue Mosque and Marmara Sea. Best of all was the extremely... More

The Blue Tuana Hotel is situated close to all the sightseeing areas in Sulthanamet (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern. The room was an adequate size as we only really got in late at night. The rooms were cleaned daily and the bed was comfortable. Would recommend to anyone to stay here

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

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
