Stayed here for 4 nights in January. Location was perfect, walking distance to the major landmarks in Sultanahmet, 3 min stroll to tram station. Choose the rooms with the seaview, slightly pricier but worth the price. A little tip, book it with the hotel directly. With more than 3 nights stay, you get a portable wifi and 1 way shuttle...

Hotel Arcadia Blue is the only hotel I book whenever I visit Istanbul. Even before arriving in Istanbul, the hotel manager contacts me to ensure I am prepared for my visit, sorting out airport transfers and asking whether I have certain requirements/needs. All of the staff are helpful and courteous. As for the hotel, it is really clean and modern....

The Arcadia Blue boasts one of the best locations in central Istanbul, equidistant from the Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia and the Grand Bazaar and steps away from the metro and a lively district of bakeries, shops and restaurants. Upper-story rooms also offer breathtaking views of the city's most famous monuments and the Bosphorus (try to snag #806 if it's available --...

Very nice sea view and SultanAhmet (blue mosque) and other attractions. The room were spacious but the furniture were rather old. toilets were clean but sometimes bad smell. Location is super in the heat of the historical area, Metro station was few minutes away. Price was fair. breakfast restaurant were at the roof with a marvelous panorama view.

I really loved the stay in Arcadia Blue. The personell is very friendly. The food is great. The room is really nice. But the view on the mosque and the bosporus are just astonishing. A really breathtaking view during the morning watching the sun rise. I can just recommend this hotel. For myself after staying here in September 2016 I...

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.
