I stayed here in early september 2014. Cannot fault it - really good location - a few minutes walk from the big 4 tourist destinations (blue mosque, hagia Sophia, topkapi castle & of course the Bazar)....Its not the Four Seasons - but you are not being asked to pay their prices. The staff are really friendly and welcoming, room are... More

I booked in June, and they canceled my reservation 1 week before my arrival in September via an automatic message!! I had to call them 4 times to talk to someone able to speak English properly and the answer was "the water pipe had an issue and your room is unavailable. Rather than giving me another room (as they still... More

We booked 3 nights at Blue Istanbul and gave Amex card details to hold the booking. On arrival we were advised they do not accept Amex. We said that's ok we can use Visa. They said too late they already gave the room away. As we had booked the room just one hour before we arrived that seemed strange. They... More

Wow. We are family with 3 teen kids. We stayed in 5* hotels in Europe, USA, Moscow & Middle East - this is our happiest hotel experience ever. Not more glamourous than 5* - but a happier experience. I cannot understand any negative review about this hotel (we also have very high expectations) Staff love each other like they are... More

We arrived late (perhaps early?) at the hotel (1am) and were extremely delighted to know that our reservation was not cancelled. More to that, we were given an upgrade. We had initially booked a budget double room for one night and a budget triple room for another night, which were basement rooms. Somehow, to our delight, we were given a... More

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
