A nice hotel, of the traditional kind but with good facilities and a decent breakfast and kind staff speaking several foreign languages. All this at 100-250 m from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Mosaique Museum and Arasta bazar, and close to the tram stop too. Strangely enough, it is a quiet place except for endless processions of touring cars slowly passing... More

This hotel is only a very short distance from the famous Blue Mosque and close to other major attractions of old Istanbul. Easy walking distance to Hippodrome, Grand Bazaar, Basilica Cistern. The tram is a few minutes walk away and the waterfront is a short walk away. Our room was spacious and had a view of the mosque and the... More

The last eight or nine times we have visited Istanbul, we have stayed at the Blue House Hotel. Like other visitors, we note how conveniently located it is to most of the reasons folks visit the city. Not only are major sites just across the street, the tram is only 4 minutes away. The hotel is really at the center... More

My husband and I had a great experience staying here for my 30th birthday. Our room (416, I believe) had an AMAZING view of the Blue Mosque. The location of this hotel is amazing - especially for the price. It really cannot be beat. We walked to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar, Hippodrome, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace.... More

They were all the time willing to help and give advice. They book for the shows so it isn't necessary to go to the theater twice. You just show up at the time of the show. A pity that since they charge in Euros they dont give the chance in Euros. It made us go to an Exchange again When... More
