We were advised to go to this Resturant from our hotel. We were told the view of both mosques was fabulous. This was correct. But the meal was disappointing. There were only 2 other tables taken, but there was no care taken over our meal. It was overcooked, tasteless and disappointing. We gave feedback to our hotel concierge that although... More

I arrived to be surprised... A fantastic location within walking distance from the principal attractions in the city...a memorable stay and can't wait to go back. The best breakfast with a bird's eye view of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.... Unforgettable!

Please note that this review is strictly for the restaurant. We spent New Years Eve at the rooftop restaurant and was an expensive yet memorable experience. We ate much more than we could ask for, maybe not the best meal but can't complain a lot. Overall was good except for the entertainment, the dancers demanded (not request, not asked) for... More

We had the Sea View room which also overlooks Hagia Sophia & Blue Mosque. Well worth the upgrade. Views are amazing. Modern furnishings and bathroom and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and we had dinner one night which was excellent. Both services are on top floor restaurant and again provide amazing views. WiFi was... More

I fall in love with the hotel! I have this trip like a gift for my birthday... I don't choose anything but who choose the hotel know Istanbul very well. The position is perfect you can arrive everywhere by foot or with a bus or in a taxi. The hotel is situated in the middle of old city, around you... More

Not the fanciest hotel in Istanbul, but the location is just perfect. Walking distance to the Blue mosque, Sofia, Cistern, etc, etc., Not far from the Grand Bazaar, the focus of the shopping trip we were on. The view from the restaurant/bar is just the best... Not terribly expensive. Highly recommended.

The Acadia Blue is our home away from home. A wonderfully clean and welcoming environment with friendly staff and great views. The breakfast is great and in such a lovely venue. The location of the hotel also can't be beat.

Pros : Excellent location, very clean and comfortable , great view from the restaurant at top. Probably would recommend to a friend. Cons: WiFi is horrendous, it works at the speed of dial up. They offered to give us a VIP taxi service @25 euros from attaturk Airport, this is a bit of a con really you can hail a... 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.
