Stayed at Blue House Hotel 7-10 Sept2011.The hotel is great for those that don't want palace size rooms. There were 3 couple's and we were treated wonderfully. It's across the street from the Blue Mosque and around the corner two blocks from the Hagia Sophia. Arrived on 7 Sept around 11:30 AM, were in our room's by 2PM. King size beds, 2 doubles pushed together. Better than a double, with small but functional bathrooms. The room service was excellent and the A/C worked! The front desk was helpful acquiring extra pillows for my wife and I. The breakfast, European continental, was ready by 6:45 daily. The server setting up the breakfast, had my ice bucket and large glass ready each morning, for ice tea. The view from the roof restaurant was fantastic. While on tour on Friday with a guide we had lunch at the "Pudding Shop". Our guide explained the owner also owns the Blue House Hotel. He was working the cash register. I went back after a great lunch and commented how pleased we were with the hotel. He asked for my room number and upon our return that evening a bottle of Merlot was waiting for us in our room. How great is that!
On the back street of the hotel is a street with 2 blocks of great restaurants, easily missed. On the way is a minimart with cigs, wine, whiskey, etc. There's a laundry out the main door to the right at the end of the block turn left and on the left. Good job, fast, less expensive than the hotel. I would stay at the Blue House Hotel again.
