Close to lots of the places of interest to tourists. 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and the bus stop for the hop on hop off bus. Staff were very helpful - right from the start and answered questions promptly via email.

Blue House is literally at the centre of hustle bustle of tourists in Sultanahmet, and I could easily walk around to see all the iconic buildings in the area. When I was there, blue mosque was the view from my window. What I liked most about the hotel, aside from the location, is that it's clean. Should I visit Istanbul... More

We have been to Istanbul over a dozen times now and on shorter trips we stay at the Blue House. Sometimes for longer trips we rent a VRBO but nothing compares to the convenience of the Blue House. The location and view are amazing. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. I love the Rami House restaurant next door to... More

Wonderful location with views of the Blue mosque and the sea. Great location to be near major sites with terrific resturants within walking distance. Staff clearly cared about our needs and anticipated them. Prepared a lovely breakfast when he had a very early am departure.

I am sort of afraid to talk about the Blue House since it may get over-run with people. We have stayed here the seven times we have visited Istanbul and would not even consider another place. The location is great, the staff friendly [and they are some of the same folk we have seen over the years], the accommodations are... More

Excellent location; quiet but within 2 minutes walk of countless restaurants, as well as the Blue Mosque, Museum, etc. View of the sea and Blue Mosque from bedroom and roof terrace was spectacular. Very friendly staff, from the initial booking right through to the departure from the hotel. Wide range of facilities available within the hotel. Not lavishly decorated and... More

The view is amazing! Worth going to the rooftop terrace for a drink at sunset. Just gorgeous. Service is good but drinks are expensive. 21 lira for a glass of wine and 12 lira for a small beer. We didn't eat there.

My wife and I are taking a four day trip to Istanbul. Hotel is a quaint boutique hotel. Very charming and friendly staff. Our room faces the Blue Mosque. Spectacular to the mosque each morning from our window. However the morning call to prayers over the load speaker tends to help us rise early. But the comfort of the cozy... More

The Blue House is situated in the most perfect location in Istanbul. It is a restored old house -- blue with white trim, a vision on the outside. It is on a corner separated from the Blue Mosque by a large partially covered family restaurant with a dervish show, and a small bazaar with excellent shopping. Just up the street... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
