The hotel is in the sultanhamet area within walking distance to the tram, Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia and with the best view of the 2 attractions against the backdrop of the Bosphorus and a panorama of Istanbul. You can sit here for hours and when the sun sets and the city lights go on, there are no words to... More

Hotel Arcadia Blue - I knew this was a great hotel the first time I saw its promo video on its website. And I wasn't dissapointed! For a first time vacationer to Istanbul, you need the right hotel to make your stay as magical and amazing as the city itself. And that is no doubt Hotel Arcadia Blue. This swanky,... More

The hotel is in a perfect position if you are visiting Istanbul for the first time. You are only two to three minutes walk from the main Sultanahmet tram stop and you can see the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia very clearly from the 9th floor where breakfast is available every morning. I was surprised about the comprehensive choice of... More

A friend recommended Arcadia Blue for our trip to Istanbul. Perfectly located in Old Town, close to many sights and metro. Great view while enjoying breakfast. Highly recommended. Good service and good food.

Everything was good but sometimes they don't clean the rooms quite well. The breakfast is very good. Sea view rooms are the best. Don't miss it. The hotel is just opposite of Sultanahmet Mosque(blue mosque); making the hotel best located for tourists. In winter, if it snows the road becomes very very very snowy and soggy. Very nasty.
