Their service was very good. The breakfast was buffet style and very yummy, we could eat it at a top-roof balcony with a sea view. it was very romantic and everyone was taking photos of it :) The location was also great :)

Hotel has great location but rooms are too small, friendly staff and has a great view from breakfast room that is located on the rooftop however poor selection of food. This hotel is recomended for solo travelers with little budget.

The location is great, right next to the Blue Mosque. The staff from the reception is very helpfull. I arrived without my luggage and they helped me to retrivet it with the airport operater. The breakfast is served in the top of the hotel with a great view, but the food isn't that great. The rooms are basic but clean.... More

The hotel is a bit tricky to find at the beginning, but its close to really great places in Sultanahmet. Breakfast was good, but nothing special. Not so clean. The bathroom in our room had a really bad smell but we were only able to change it after 2 days when another guest checked out. There was no elevator. Overall... More

This is a really good budget hotel in a great location. I would have given this hotel an excellent rating but our private airport shuttle we ordered was 30mins late and the bathroom had an unpleasant smell. These were the only negatives we had about our stay. We had originally booked the semi basement room but upgraded once we got... More

I've just come back from Istanbul, where I stayed at the Blue Tuana Hotel. It turned out to be a great choice. We booked a twin bedroom, but upon arrival we were given a bedroom with a double+ twin beds. This leaves not much spaces to move around, but since we were 2 people it was OK. We stayed in... More

The staff at Blue Tuana couldn't do enough for us - whatever questions we had they had the answers, any help we needed they were there for us. The breakfast meze on the terrace was a great way to start the day, with unbeatable views of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and the Marmara Sea. Rooms were cleaned daily and... More

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

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.
