This is definitely a good hotel and located in one of the most interesting places close to all the major attractions. Good services, a fine staff, clean but small rooms and an impeccable bathroom. Ask for the quiet rooms if you don't like the sound of the mosques. I stayed here for 4 nights and after the second day the... More

Incredibly well located near the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi, and I'd highly recommend it. Friendly knowledgeably staff, good English. Proximity to major attractions allows people staying there to get a 'head start' (i.e. shorter lines) over large groups and those from cruise ships, permitting one to use time efficiently. Also close to tramways to Topkapi and Grand Bazaar.... More

We spent 4 nights here and loved it. Great staff and central location, comfortable, clean and the most fantastic view from the roof terrace. We didn't have a meal but drank tea there most evenings enjoying the view of the Blue Mosque. Istanbul was very busy but the hotel was a calm oasis amid the hustle and bustle.

We stayed at the Blue House at either end of our trip, four nights in all. Loved it. Room clean and comfortable, everything worked. Delightful, helpful staff who spoke good English - why should they ? When we returned for the second stay, we were greeted like old friends. Perfect location and what might just be the best view in... More

I didn't stay here but I ate the restaurant on the rooftop terrace. The view is simply spectacular! The front staff and the wait staff were all pleasant and accommodating. The food was superb and the view - unbeatable! You can see the Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque, and even the small bazaar across the street.

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
