We stayed here for 4 days over New Years. It was recommended to us by a cousin of mine who had stayed there. It's located just behind the Blue Mosque, so we had a great view of the mosque from our window. The room was clean and comfortable, except for the day of our arrival, it was raining hard and...

I had been recommended the Blue House by some English friends who had stayed there about a month before I arrived. I wasn't disappointed. The staff spoke English perfectly and were very helpful.

We changed our location on our last night in Istanbul and booked into the Blue House Hotel. It's just a pity that we didn't book this venue first because the location is brilliant. It's so close to the Blue Mosque, you could toss pebbles into its walled garden! Seriously, when you stay in a bust city like Istanbul and need...

A nice hotel, of the traditional kind but with good facilities and a decent breakfast and kind staff speaking several foreign languages. All this at 100-250 m from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Mosaique Museum and Arasta bazar, and close to the tram stop too. Strangely enough, it is a quiet place except for endless processions of touring cars slowly passing...

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.
