The corner room was very good and luminous but the view was dissapointing. I thought it would be as the picture in internet showed and the view was my priority, but being on the fifth floor it had a partial view of the sea and of everything. The service was very good, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Perfect... More

We stayed here with another couple and our teenaged daughters and loved the hotel. The location was literally within walking distance to the Blue Mosque as well as restaurants and the underground Cistern. Our room was small but clean and well-appointed. I wish we had spent up for a view of the Blue Mosque. Breakfast on the roof deck was... More

With minimalistic design this a brand new hotel. (Some of the taxi drivers did not know the place although they knew the street). We stayed in a room on the 7th floor and our views were absolutely dazzling. We could see alt the way from Hagia sofia to the blue mosque. Perfect location. Staff is friendly but their english is...

Over the last six years we have done extensive travel and stayed in many, many accommodation options, and found the Arcadia Blue one of a few that has been the most relaxed to date. It's simplistic design, rooms are not large, but comfortable and modern. The views over the sea and Mosques was just amazing!! The offer of a free... More

We have spent 5 days in this hotel. A little bit expensive (around 200 EUR per day) considering the cost of living in Turkey, this hotel is confortable and well situated near the best spots in Sultanhamet and close to the tramway station. Very modern design-which is quite rare in Sultanhamet! The view from the room (7° Floor) on the... More

We stayed at this hotel on the first week of July and we had a room on the 5th floor where the view of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the sea is breathtaking as it is from the breakfast room, on the top floor. The location is perfect, too: it is a very short walk from the train station... More

We booked this hotel for the view and view alone, and were delighted with the result. We were on the 7th floor with unobstructed views from the Sea of Marmara right around to the Bosphorus (180 deg), complete with the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia directly in front - undoubtedly the best view from a hotel room I have ever...

Staying at Arcadia. Nice Hotel. Excellent location. Rooms comfortable. View from the tip floors best. So worth spending extra. However even if you don't want to pay extra, the view from the roof top restaurant is breathtakingly beautiful. Don't miss having an evening meal there. Sense of peace permeates your whole being. Breakfast not upto the mark. Needs improvement.
