We went on the look out for a meal with a view of Istanbul and this one is hard to beat, however the food left a lot to be desired. Every meal we have had in this city has been top notch but here we were disappointed. This is a great location being wasted.

I must start by saying that i have not stayed in other hotels in Istanbul so any comparisons are international. Positives: Excellent location for visiting at least 3 of the main tourist sites in Istanbul: Aya Sofia; Blue Mosque & Topkapi palace. All within easy walking distance (and i'm not a fast dynamic walker!) Friendly staff (some more efficient than... More

A beautiful small personal hotel within 300 yards of the Blue Mosque. Arrived on last few days of Ramadan so an easy walk to fountains and park are between Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Do need ear plugs for quieting the call to prayer. Breakfast was great and roof restaurant can not be beat.

The location is absolutely incredible - perfectly situated for visiting the major sites and for accessing many different forms of public transportation. However, since the hotel is located on a small side street, it is very quiet. The staff are lovely - helpful, informative, and polite. The rooms and shared areas of the hotel are clean and comfortable, the breakfasts... More

The Blue House Hotel gives you ready walking access to the major sights to see in Sultanahmet. Across the street from the Blue Mosque, a block away from Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, and the Hippodrome. Less than a mile from Topaki Palace and the Grand Bazaar. Beyond location, the Blue House provided great service, a nice room, good breakfast, wonderful... More

If you want to stay in the Old Town for a reasonable price, the Blue House Hotel is an excellent choice. It is about as close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia as you could get. And the roof top terrace restaurant has outstanding views - almost 360. The staff are very polite and helpful. The rooms are clean... More

Blue House Hotel has an extraordinary location, making a magic triangle with Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Both architectural icons are the background of your terrace dinner, with excellent quality food, service and reasonable prices. Abundant and delicious breakfast is served in the patio, also with a view of the Blue Mosque. Access to the tram that can take... More
