Popped up to the terrace for a drink while wandering round and the views were outstanding, staff were really friendly and yet there were only 2 other people up there which is a tragic waste of a beautiful spot, highly recommended

We stayed at the Blue House Hotel in the winter, the Terrace Restaurant was closed but we went up to the roof for the view of the Blue Mosque and Sea of Marmara, which is magbificent.

Good views of the Blue Mosque especially at night - in daytime in the summer you will get fried. The food was eatable but indifferent compared to other local places like Sofa Café.

This neat, powder blue hotel boasts a roof-top restaurant with a great view of the Blue Mosque where you can enjoy some drinks and watch the Istanbul sunset. Worth a visit!

An exceptional view of the Blue Mosque which should be experienced at night - with dinner. The stuffed eggplant was the best ever and the wine list matched the quality of the food. Only thing better was the service.

We visited late afternoon and we're greeted by the most amazing views. Staff were friendly, and food was OK. Didn't matter though, we were totally blown away by the view!

My advice is make this a mandatory stop during your time in Istanbul. We visited the Blue House Terrace Restaurant on our first night in Istanbul where we saw the sun setting behind the Blue Mosque. A truly beautiful view that I will always remember! It was a great way to start our trip. The food was good, but not... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
