Stayed here over the Easter and had a good time. The staff in the reception was friendly. Spacious and nice room, the bed was a bit hard and so were the pillows. The selection in the mini bar was good but expensive. The problem was the bathroom that had a strong smell of urine. I cleaned the bathroom to make... More

The location is perfect to reach the Blue Mosque, Ayasofya, and more, either by walking or using the tram. The immediate surroundings of the hotel are very quiet. The staff is professional, courteous and very helpful. The breakfast buffet offers variety for everyone, and is a lovely way to begin the day, looking out onto beautiful views of Istanbul. For...

Very nice view from restaurant. Hotel is nearby historic sites. Bad cleaning service in rooms. If you booked for dinner in hotel restaurant be ready for long very long service. WiFi to slow. Located in a quiet location.

We only stayed one night in transit and we were provided an upgraded room with the view on Ayasofia and the Blue Mosque: amazing waking up with the sunshine and this splendid view. Just that is worth the trip! The breakfast is served on the 9th floor with the same view and a terrace. I found it was good with... More

I stayed in this hotel with some friends in March 2015 and enjoyed our stay immensely. The view we had from the room and rooftop dining room was spectacular. Location was superb and we could go to all the places we needed to go within walking distance and restaurants were all around us. Also the tram stop was just a... More

Many of the major sights of Istanbul are located in and around the Old City (Sultanahmet) and Arcadia Blue is located within easy walking distance of all of them. Plus it is very near the tram line (which is cheap and easy to use) and a wide variety of restaurants.

I stayed only one night and they gave me the room with the view of the blue-Mosque. I was astonished to have this view form the room. Plus, the room was super clean and comfortable. The location is very calm. I loved the roof terrace but I would suggest that they improve the breakfast. This location and this hotel should... More
