The last eight or nine times we have visited Istanbul, we have stayed at the Blue House Hotel. Like other visitors, we note how conveniently located it is to most of the reasons folks visit the city. Not only are major sites just across the street, the tram is only 4 minutes away. The hotel is really at the center... More

My husband and I had a great experience staying here for my 30th birthday. Our room (416, I believe) had an AMAZING view of the Blue Mosque. The location of this hotel is amazing - especially for the price. It really cannot be beat.

Incredibly well located near the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi, and I'd highly recommend it. Friendly knowledgeably staff, good English. Proximity to major attractions allows people staying there to get a 'head start' (i.e. shorter lines) over large groups and those from cruise ships, permitting one to use time efficiently. Also close to tramways to Topkapi and Grand Bazaar.... More

We spent 4 nights here and loved it. Great staff and central location, comfortable, clean and the most fantastic view from the roof terrace. We didn't have a meal but drank tea there most evenings enjoying the view of the Blue Mosque. Istanbul was very busy but the hotel was a calm oasis amid the hustle and bustle.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
