Blue Istanbul Hotel
Ranked #354 of 1,087 Istanbul B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 11, 2013

This hotel is close to almost all attractions. Everything is within walking distance. The staff is good and helpful. One thing that I didn't like about this hotel is the restaurant. It is small and a bit crowded.

I was given a room on the 4th floor and it had a big window with an awesome sea view. It is probably the best view i ever got in a hotel room. I'll be back if i visit Istanbul again. The place is run by a family and they are a very friendly bunch, especially Omar.

The nice size flat screen TV only played one channel unfortunately and i couldn't understand the language. Also, they only serve nescafe in the morning for breakfast, no turkish coffee.

Our goal was to visit the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Museum. We (a family of 5)found Blue Istambul hotel to be a great location and a friendly place to checkin. The upper room accomodations we got had a beautiful view. Rooms were clean and looked newly built. My wife found the bathrooms a bit small but the rooms were large enough for a family stay. We especially enjoyed the lavish Turkish breakfast.. included with the stay. The staff was courteous and welcoming.

We visited in Nov... kind of offseason... and had a great time! I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting with family.

Room Tip: Choose the upper rooms. They have a fantastic view of the Bhosphorous.

This was a very nice hotel to stay at. We were pleasantly surprised to find the room spotless, new and well designed. The location is perfect, just a 5 minute walk away from the Great Mosque and little streets with lots of vintage, traditional shops and amazing restaurants, where you can indulge on tasty Turkish food. The staff was friendly also and the hotel is good value. For a family of 4 we paid 69 euro for one night including breakfast but unfortunately we had to leave before breakfast so we will definitely go back to get it!

We was five nights at the hotel. The hotel is very close to the historic center and the tram. Hard to find the first time. The hotel is quiet, comfortable, clean. A nice service.Excellent for little money.
I recommend!:))

Room wasn't big but you have things you need around. Hotel manager, and staff are talkative and nice. Apple tea and homemade coffee as hospitality was impressive. Located at the Sultanahmet District, it's a 10-15 mins walking distance to The Blue Mosque, and we found local cuisines nearby plus a supermarket 2 blocks away. Also, there is a convenient store right at the opposite.
