The Blue House Hotel is in the heart of Sultan Ahmet area. The foyer has a good ambience and the staff are welcoming and efficient. The rooms are clean with a semi-antique look. The bathroom is tiny and the room just had enough space for movement. The top floor has a beautiful view of the surrounding area, Bosporus and the... More

I booked an airbnb in Istanbul which fell far short of the description on the website . The first night the power went out and there was no hot water, electricity, or potable water. The next morning we called the Blue House where I had stayed earlier. When we arrived at the hotel at 8:00 am wet from the rain... More

We booked on recommendation from Rick Steves and were not disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was cheerfully helpful. The location put us just steps away from the Blue Mosque. Dine on the rooftop terrace with marvelous views. We'd do it again.

Previous reviewers have said it all. The ideal location for a few days in the centre of the old city, this hotel is comfortable with nice rooms and good beds. But there is a bazaar and night-spot just over the road for late-night insomniacs and the muezzin can be relied upon for the morning alarm call. Breakfast is fine but... More

We were quite thrilled with our choice, being right next to the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia Musemm, Topkapi Palace, and the Underground Cistern, all within a short walking distance. The rooms were small but well furnished, clean and very comfortable with fair attention to details. Breakfast was very substantial, a buffet consisting of a variety of cereals, fruit, cheese,...
