My husband and I have stayed in this nice, clean hotel in September and we had a wonderful experience about it. It is a small, but quite comfortable, clean and well maintained hotel, located in Sultanahmet aria, an old part of the city. Everything worth seeing is nearby: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, The Hipodrome and many nice and cozy restaurants... More

We stayed 3 nights in this small, well-maintained hotel. Since we had only 2 full days to see Istanbul, this proved to be an excellent location, easily within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar and Hagia Sophia. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay here at Blue Istanbul Hotel. It was off the beaten path a little bit, but not too far away. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice. It was simple, but we were out seeing the sights anyway so it was just what we needed.

we travelled a lot and have never experienced such an ugly treatment in all our lives. we were at the Blue hotel mid October and we paid the hotel bill twice: once cash (as agreed in order to benefit of a free pick-up upon arrival at the airport) and than by an undue and unaxplainable charge of my credit card....

Our taxi driver from the airport had to ask several times to be able to find this hotel. The front desk spoke good English and they had good service. Our room had a comfortable queen bed and also a twin and was recently decorated and very clean. The small bathroom had been recently renovated and had only a shower, but... More

This hotel is an excellent location nearby the blue mosque, Grand bazaar and away from the main streets enough to feel like the 'real Istanbul'. The room was quite small but has a great view of the Blue Mosque.
