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.

We spent 4 days in the Arcadia and enjoyed very friendly & helpful staff (especially the manager, Can), a modern & clean room and a good breakfast with the best view ever! (Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and the sea). Only 3min walk to these sights- best location ever! Also close to many restaurants, shops etc. Taxi ride to the Atatürk... More

I booked this hotel online when I saw the price (about $100 USD during low season - February) and saw the views from the hotel - an unblocked view of Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. I can only imagine this price can be triple this during high season. I only stayed 1 night. The property was very nice and felt... More

The location of this hotel is great! It is very close to many of the sightseeing locations and close to the metro for travel to other sights. I would like to personally thank Can (Guest Relations) for taking the time to point out the many places of interest. I had been in Istanbul for two days prior to checking in... More

Arcadia Blue is a well run, modern hotel in the centre of historic Istanbul. If you're sightseeing there is hardly a better location. Rooms and bathrooms are very well appointed - sea view rooms on higher floors offer uninterrupted views of the Blue Mosque. Waking up to see the sunrise behind this magnificent building is not something you'll forget. The... More

The Blue Arcadian is located in easy walking distance of the Blue Mosque and several others. The Grand Bazaar is also just around the corner. I had a budget room with "no windows" but there was a small high window in the separate office area that looked out to the building meters away. My room was small but comfortable, apart... More
