I was looking for a convenient place to stay so I could see sights like Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, etc. This hotel was great for location. On top of that, the hotel staff were the best. They are young, great at what they do, proficient in English, and helpful to the extreme. I even got multiple e-mails... More

We stayed at this hotel in January 2015. We booked 2 rooms, a double and single. The rooms were very clean, small but cosy. We didn't spend much time in the rooms so their sizes really were not important. The location of the hotel was great - at walking distance to the Sultanahment area and tramvay stops. We actually booked... More

The second night my double room was ready. Not so big but nice and clean. Nice bathroom with everything you need for your personal hygiene. Nice... More

Arrived at the hotel to a warm welcome and was told we were getting upgraded to a suite which was situated next door in the annex. Before being taken to our room we were given a lot of very useful information and a map of sultanahmet. The suite was very nice and had a living room with a couple of... More

There are many hotels in the area, which are ideal because of the excellent location near the most important sightseeings, restaurants,cafes and bazaars. And of course the 5 min walk from the tram station! This one stands out for its welcoming and caring stuff, the tasty and abbondand breakfast and the cleanliness. It's a good money for value hotel, which... More

We cannot suggest this hotel. We experienced several issues during our stay - including being sent to a different property against our will - when the hotel was oversold. The other property did not offer the same amenities or neighborhood as this hotel, so we were disappointed. Once others checked out and rooms became available, we were checked into the... More

I do not know why they are getting positive reviews. The place was generally unkempt and shoddy. We found bugs in the beg. Totally gross!! The breakfasts were disappointing and I found hair in numerous dishes. Again, gross!! I would not stay here again. It was way to expensive for the condition of the hotel.

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
