5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

Thıs hotel was just a breath of fresh aır ın Istanbul.
On my bıke I am travellıng from Amsterdam to Sıngapore and due to some logıstıc trouble I had to come to Istanbul already 3 tımes. Every tıme I chose Blue Istanbul hotel and ıf I would return a 4th tıme I 'd choose ıt agaın wıthout a blınk.

Plusses are:
# Staff: very frıendly, always ready to help out and genuınly concerned about the guests havıng a pleasant stay ın theır hotel.
# Locatıon: sıtuated rıght ın the centre of Istanbul close to all the maın cıtıes 'attractıons' and close to sea for a walk alongsıde the boulevard as well.
# Nıce bıg breakfast. Importantly not just the Turkısh tradıtıonal stuff but also Fruıt, and vegetablesi cereals etc.
# Clean & modern. Equıped wıth all the stuff that you need. Excellent bathroom. Sattelıte TV. Small mını bar.
# All thıs at very affordable, modest rates.

Maybe a dısadvantage would be that some rooms are quıte small. But they come at a much cheaper rate too! So that makes the hotel suıted for people on a lıttle tıght budget too!

Hıghly reccomend ıt...

I had a wonderful stay at Blue istanbul Hotel. The rooms are very nice, the hotel is very new, with a very good service also.
KLM had missed my suitcase and the staff was very friendly, offering theirselves to go shopping with me for essencial needs.
The hotel is realy close to many attractions in Sultanahmed and is easy to access by train, coming from the airport.
I strongly recommend a stay at Blue Istanbul Hotel.

The hotel is close to most sightseeing attractions (10 minute walk both to Aya Sofia and Grand Bazaar). The hotel is newly built, has comfortable, clean rooms, some rooms have sea view. Although we booked for a sea view room, the first night we got a different one. Next day we asked for the sea view room, and got one! It was amazing! :) So if you can, book one as well.
Staff is very friendly and helpful! They helped to organize a nice dinner (fish restaurant) and a drive to a turkish bath which I do recommend to try out!

One of many good hotels around Sultanahmet but they have a special touch here.
Great views of the Sea of Mamara from rooms on the back side and big breakfast spread in the mornings. Small and new so they are doing their best and perfect location.
The price is right too......

Room Tip: Back side with the view of the sea of Mamara

Nice, very clean hotel in the center of Istanbul. It is only 2 minutes from the Blue Mosque. Hotel is new, therefore clean and very affordable for Istanbul. Breakfast was basic, but nice. Hotel staff is young and still learining, but willing to help.
