Spectacular view of all the boats lining up to pass through the Bosphorus. Our room was very clean, comfortable and cozy. Bathroom was very nice and spacious. Breakfast in a covered terrace downstairs was good. Located on a quiet street and easy to find using public transportation and just steps away from the main sights. Staff is really very helpful and friendly. We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a sea view

we spent two nights at blue istanbul hotel. From the lovely welcome to the location, it's a great place to spend a week. The staff was friendly and the location was EXCELLENT. This is a wonderful hotel in a prime location and with the most friendly staff.The standard rooms are very comfortable if a bit small but with so much to see in Istanbul, we did not spend much time in the room anyway. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Information, maps and help are provided with genuine attention. When we needed help to get train voucher tokens the staff walked up with us to get the tokens we needed. Well done! I also enjoyed the morning newsletter at our breakfast table it was full of information and even told us of daily closures of sites.

this hotel had only been open for two weeks when we checked in, following a referral from tulip guesthouse.

the room we were allocated was comfortable, clean and spacious. the bathroom is small, but has a rain shower which is a great bonus. the beds were fine and sleep was good. the room includes tea and coffee making facilities which was welcome, though they could do with more power sockets, as you have to unplug the fridge in order to put the kettle on. that, and the bathroom door has no hooks.

there is a good variety of food available at breakfast and they also cook omelette upon request. staff are friendly and helpful.

location: the hotel is down a side street approximately 4-5 minutes walk from the blue mosque. another minute or so and you're at the aya sofya and topkapi.

overall i would recommend this hotel.

Small, but nice hotel near the Blue Mosque. Very nicely designed with hardwood floors and the like. Pleasantly surprised with the heated tiles in the bathroom. We had a basement room but it didn't feel dungeon-like in the least. It was very clean, but since we were the first to use that room that shouldn't be surprising. They had a very nice breakfast included.
