The Arcadia Blue has so many good qualities, that I concur with all other 'great' reviews of my fellow travelers. Location is key; cleanliness, amenities, restaurant and service were all spot on. The front desk staff, especially Ayhon, were all professional, accommodating and very pleasant. We definitely made the right choice with this hotel.

My son & I stayed here (recommended to us by a friend) and we weren't disappointed. There's a special package whereby if you stay more than 3 nights (we did 5) you get a complimentary pick up from the Ataturk airport: that was well worth it for us, as we arrived very late. The staff at reception were welcoming, and... More

I stayed just a night at the Arcadia Blue, but was treated to a nice room with an amazing view of the city, the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sofia, which looked cool both during the day, and when they were lit up at night. The hotel is in a nice central location, close to the streetcar line. Staff was... More

Stayed in Istanbul in the middle of June 2016 (just between the two June attacks). If I had not seen the news during my stay I would never have known there was any concern. The hotel is beautiful with extremely stunning views of the blue mosque and surrounding area from the rooftop restaurant. Just seconds walk from the hippodrome, blue... More

The hotel has an ideal location in the Old City of Istanbul, and within walking distance of all the major attractions. Hotel rooms have a spectacular view of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The rooms were spacious with modern furnishings. The views from the roof top restaurant are amazing! Staff were helpful. High recommend this hotel!

Exceptionnal view from the restaurant. Rooms are a little bit small and the view from the room was not terrible. The staff is very nice and kind with kids. Perfect central location to visit istanbul. The food is not exceptionnal like all the other places in this country.

I booked the smallest room they had but at checkin, I was informed that I was upgraded to a king bed, yay! Emre checked me in and he was very helpful during my stay.... 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.
