I love to travel but I don't like to book anything in advance. I like to arrive, feel out the area, figure out which hotel appeals to me the most and then inquire as to whether they have availability. This is exactly what I did when I arrived in Istanbul on 22Nov2014. I disembarked the tram at Sultanahmet and walked... More

We stayed here for 4 days over New Years. It was recommended to us by a cousin of mine who had stayed there. It's located just behind the Blue Mosque, so we had a great view of the mosque from our window. The room was clean and comfortable, except for the day of our arrival, it was raining hard and...

We stayed at the hotel for four nights over the new years weekend. Our room was on the fourth flood and the view of the Blue Mosque and the water was excellent. The staff was always present at the front desk and were very helpful in answering questions and helping to arrange day tours with local tour companies. The hotel... More

We stayed here for the Istanbul component of our 3 week trip through Turkey. We had 2 rooms for the 4 of us. The rooms were great. Comfortable, clean and inviting. We had a view of the street and the road - but that was great! Its in the old town part of Istanbul so the street is cobbled and... More

I had been recommended the Blue House by some English friends who had stayed there about a month before I arrived. I wasn't disappointed. The staff spoke English perfectly and were very helpful. It rained quite often during my stay and I was able to borrow an umbrella. The room and bathroom were good value for the money. There was... More

My husband and I were very excited about our stay at the Blue House Hotel in Istanbul. Based on the TA reviews, we had high expectations! Unfortunately, our expectations were not even close to being met in some very critical areas. The front desk staff were excellent in their communications with me prior to our arrival. However, other issues did... More

We changed our location on our last night in Istanbul and booked into the Blue House Hotel. It's just a pity that we didn't book this venue first because the location is brilliant. It's so close to the Blue Mosque, you could toss pebbles into its walled garden! Seriously, when you stay in a bust city like Istanbul and need... More

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
