Arrived late to a warm welcome. Nicely located away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas but only walking distance away. Room was clean and comfortable with a great shower. Breakfast was excellent buffet style with a lot of choice. All the staff throughout our stay were excellent and would do anything to make our stay comfortable.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Blue Istanbul Hotel. The staff was incredibly helpful, and often went out of their way to help us. The location couldn't be more convenient for sightseeing, as it's only a few minutes to walk to the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia, and is also very close to the bazaars and... More

Great hotel! Awesome location, very clean and quiet and very close to all major sights. Easy to get to the airport as well. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nice breakfast with several local and continental options. We had to stay in another hotel the first night because our room wasn't free. That was a bit annoying, especially since the alternative...

Stayed here a week in Jan.. i booked a budget room and although i was initially worried as it was in the basement it was totally grand! It was small yes, but clean and enough for us as we just needed it as a base. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was good! Great location but it is... More

It was our first time in Istanbul and the people at Blue Istanbul made our experience unique. Without any doubt the staff leaded by Bahaktin is the main assets of the hotel. Since our booking they were in touch to help. They solved on the phone the issue we had when we did not find the people that had to... More

Very good for budget travellers, very clean, exotic room designs. Toilets are new and clean. Breakfast is a regular continental with a twist. Staff are very accommodating. 10 minutes walking distance to Blue Mosque, 5 minutes from cemberlitas subway station. Lots and lots of restaurants around the area. Not good if you're wearing high hills, location is downhill so going... More

We stayed at the Blue Instanbul Hotel for 10 nights. Service: The #1 The hotel manager Bahaktin, and the staff, went above and beyond to be of assistance, whether it was helping find a medical provider, intervening when we were overcharged for medical supplies, making suggestions about what to do, what shops to frequent, or simply responding to requests.

Can not imagine staying at any other hotel for my trip to Istanbul! The location is great, about a 10 minute walk from the Blue Mosque, Ayasoya, Basilica Cistern, and the Grand Bazaar! Sultanahmet in general is a great area to stay, just be aware that you will hear the prayers from the mosque early in the morning. The service... More
