Friendly staff, comfortable rooms (not flash, but everything you really need) but a fabulous location in the Sultanahmet area, close to a lot of the major attractions of Istanbul. We (two women travelling together) had a lovely stay here for 4 days and were able to get around really easily on our own - walking, tram, ferry etc.

Our plans changed and we found ourselves with three extra days in Istanbul but with no hotel and no real knowledge of the city. We used Google Earth and Trip Adviser and liked the look and location of the Blue House so it was our first call. About an hour later, we were checked in and gazing out the window,... More

Blue House is great for walking to the main sights. It's a small hotel with friendly staff, excellent kitchen, and wonderful roof-top dining and lounge. At least for our room, there was no nighttime noise. A bonus is that it's easy to get back from wherever you end your unescorted walking tour - you can usually see the minarets of... More

The location of this hotel couldn't be better in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul, within a few minutes walking distance to both the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Each time you leave for the day's activities, the walk in between the two is an experience not to be missed. The window of our room faced the Blue Mosque and we... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for visiting the main historic and religious sites of Istanbul, a couple of blocks from the Blue Mosque (visible from our room), Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace, and just a few more blocks to the Sultanahmet tram stop.

Once again was served very well by CREDO TOURS in Istanbul and the Blue House Hotel. Over many visits I have never been let down by CREDO. The Blue House is in a superb location within five minutes walk of the main attractions. The rooms are comfortable, the staff friendly, the buffet breakfast enough for a giant.

This hotel is very friendly to guests. The rooms are clean and convenient. Location is excellent. Tip for breakfast: although it was very nice that you could have your eggs boiled/baked as you wished, we really missed fresh orange juice and croissants!

The view of the Blue Mosque from the hotel is amazing. But you need to realize you will hear every call to prayer. If you are noise sensitive stay elsewhere but visit for a drink on the roof top to enjoy the view. The staff here are so nice, storing a bag of ours that we didn’t want to take... More

Our stay at the Blue House was absolutely enjoyable. We had a standard room which was tastefully decorated, comfortable and cleaned daily.

The staff and location were brilliant. Nestled opposite the Blue Mosque and very close to he Hagia Sophia you cannot be in a better location. The room was adequate for our needs although a little cramped for 3 people in a twin room. Would I use them again - definitely yes.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
