We stayed in the blue istanbul hotel in July 2014 and the room was great. Fantastic location, great price and an excellent set of workers. Breakfast was very good and long hours. Wifi worked very well. Highly recommend.

We requested a room for 3 adults. On our first night the room provided was so small that we could not lay our bags down, and one bed was broken requiring one of us to sleep on an angle. We were moved on the second night to a slightly bigger room, in my view still a bit small for 3.... More

We loved staying here - the location is superb in the heart of the old town - from the terrace restaurant/bar views of the Bosphorus on one side of the hotel and of the Blue Mosque in its glory on the other! Easy walking to all the attractions - Sophia Hagia and Topakapi Palace as well, of course to the... More

Went to Istanbul, with my Mum, to mark an anniversary that we would prefer we didn't have to. Cryptic I know, but enough of that. The hotel manager was enthusiastic about our visit and sent lots of emails arranging to pick us up at the airport and confirming our reservation. Slight disconnect at the airport as we arrived but cleared... More

I think your experience is based on your expectations. We were only going to sleep there so booked a budget room (expecting the basement) at a very good price. We stayed here twice in our holiday and both times our room was not in the basement, it was a normal room and was light and airy, the bed was huge... More

We had a lovely stay at Blue Istanbul for 4 nights in May. Prior to our arrival in Istanbul I received an email from the hotel manager confirming the details of our reservation and offering a transfer from the airport with an explanation that the hotel was new and not all taxi's from the airport would know the location. We... More

My wife and I stayed there for four nights in the first week of June and had a wonderful experience. We had a room with a sea view; it was a little small but perfectly suitable, clean, and well maintained. The free continental breakfast was excellent. The staff are friendly and very helpful, although some of them are not too... More

Hello! We are three Italian girls and we stayed in this hotel for 6 days, for us, this hotel was perfect in all respects. The rooms were cleaned every day and the staff has always been courteous and helpful with us. The breakfast is plentiful and full of typical foods. The hotel's location is very convenient because it allows you... More

We stayed here in September 2011, we were one of the first guests to stay and they were fantastic, a perfect start to our honeymoon. Rooms were beautiful, breakfast was lovely. Waking up to the sound of morning prayers couldn't have asked for anything more. It is on a back street but so close to everything. Hope to go back... More
