A great, reasonably priced option in the middle of Sultanahmet. Sea view rooms have a brilliant view. View really is excellent. Downside is that the lovely Mosque is also quite noisy. It's very convenient to reach from Ataturk airport as well by taxi.

We really couldn't have asked for more with our stay there. If staying for 2-3 days on holiday, it really couldn't be better.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms have a brilliant view, and are definitely worth the extra cost.

Great location. Great view form restaurant. Wide rooms, quality materials.
Location is super. Hotel is located on silent street, close to tram stop at few hundred meters from Blue Mosque and Cisterna Basilica.
Building seems new. Rooms are wide, furniture is of high quality. Bed is comfortable.

I will try to stay here again if I will a time for site visit.

Location and service are always the key elements for us to reach hotels. We really enjoyed our 3 nights at this convenient in and out boutique hotel. Emre is the best receptionist as I have ever met. He is very patient and friendly gentleman, gave us lots of hints for solo trip in down. We felt like stay at hometown. The hotel not like others need to climb the hills, instead it's just 100 meters to walk to bus station and most of sites within 5 mins walk. Breakfast at top floor with gorgeous view. I will definitely come back to Istanbul again in summer and will stay at this hotel with no doubt :)

Room Tip: Corner room is larger, above 6/F with nice sea view

I stayed with a friend 4 nights in Arcadia Blue hotel and we really loved our stay and deeply recommend this hotel. The staff was really nice, friendly and thorough. I have an allergy and they prepared me special food for breakfast.
Our room was very confortable (we just felt a little bit cold as the windows didn´t close hermetically). But the best part is that it had an incredible view to the Blue Mosque and Santa Sofía (6th floor). Also in the 9th floor, where the restaurant is, it was even better. Just for that worth the stay!
The location is perfect too, just a few meters from the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Sta. Sofia, Grand Bazaar as well as restaurants, shops etc.

Room Tip: Higher floors have an amazing view!
