Reviewed 1 December 2011

We had a lovely stay. The rooms are spacious and its location is a 5-10min walk from the major tourist attractions, like Blue Mosque and Haggia Sophia.
Manager Ali is a sweetheart. Ask him anything you need.
Kitchen is great, with gas stove, dishwasher and fridge. Flatscreen TV.
Could do with some more coat hangers, nice soap in bathroom and some dishwashing cloths for quick dishwashing by hand.

Room Tip: We had the suite on the first floor. It's great. No stairs to climb. Quick access.

The manager of this apart hotel Mr. Ali is such a great person, he made us feel at home and his kind and polite personality is wonderful, his willing to help and assist in any matter is really appreciated, plus the apartment were we stayed is really fantatstic, very clean, very new furnature, big enough, breakfast included, free wifi, daily room service, free airport shuttle service and much more.
Me and my family will difinilty recommend this apart hotel to any travellers coming to Istanbul and surely whenever we come to Istanbul agian will stay here.
By the way the location of this apart hotel is really nice in front of a public garden and all kind of services is near by, and so near to Sultanahmet most touristic attracions.

We had everything we needed here, including very obliging staff. Comfortable and convenient, and in what seemed like an ordinary Istanbul neighborhood, with a supermarket and a park and cafe close at hand. It was a quiet area, where we enjoyed mingling with "regular" people rather than being surrounded by other tourists, and yet we were only a few minutes from "Little Aya Sophia," and walking distance from the Blue Mosque.

Room Tip: Only a few suites (really, apartments), so not a problem.

Stayed at Blue Eye Suites in Istanbul as my other half was running the Marathon. We arrived on 14th October and left on 17th. This is more of an apartment than a hotel with breakfast included. The apartment was huge, with a large living/dining/kitchen with flat screen tv and even a dishwasher. The corridor to the bathroom and bedroom was almost as big as some hotel rooms!! It is a converted Ottoman house and has been renovated to a high standard. The breakfast is left outside your door on a fold up table for you to take when you are ready and was a typical Turkish breakfast with cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, egg, honey, jam and an assortment of bread. Ali cannot do enough to help the guests and the apartments are cleaned daily and are spotless. We have stayed in hotels in Istanbul before and had some nice hotels, but it was an absolute bonus to be able to have the space and comfort of this apartment, whilst still having breakfast provided. Whenever we go back to Istanbul this will be our first choice. A very big thank you to Ali for his hospitality.

We were staying in Blue Eye Suites in June 2011. We arrived by car and there was enough place to park our van (for free) just in front of the beautifly restored Ottoman house. The Suites are located only 10 min walking to Sultanahmet, in Kadirga, but the street life in Kadirga is totally different - there are mainly Istanbul families and you can see the real life of Turkish people with almost no turists. There are many little shops, local restaurants and craftman workshops. Just accross the street there is a pleasant park with a children playground and a large fountain. There are also two supermarkets in the next street, 2 min walking, BIM and DIA, so there are fantastic self-cattering possibilities.

The apartment has all you need - aircon, nice bathroom, comfortable beds and sofa, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, cooker ... The owner Ali also prepared a baby cot for our baby. We were also pleasantly surprised in the morning when we opened the door and there was breafast waiting for us (eggs, cheese, salami, tomato, olives, honey, jam, butter, tea, coffee, fresh bread). Each day a smilling lady perfectly cleaned the apartment and changed towels when needed.

We really enjoyed the stay and would definitely recommend Blue Eye Suites to families and couples.

After a long trip the Blue Eye Suites provided a great rest. The location was fabulous for seeing the sites, a short walk to the tram, and the staff was helpful and more than accommodating. We really felt they went out of their way for us. There is a convenient place to buy snacks and fresh fruit and vegetables across the street and the kitchen was fully equipped to prepare meals. The breakfast they left for us at our door was tasty and fresh. The entire room was very clean and easy the place was easy to relax in. I'd recommend it to friends and family.

what impressed me:
- They let me in the room when I arrived very early ~7am. It was helpful after a long flight
- Therefore I observed the cleaning process. Very thorough. Moving the bed and furniture to clean everywhere. One of the cleanest hotel I stayed.
- The young manager was a helpful and pleasant person.
- The facility is new and functioning very well.

what did not impress me:
- I could hear other tourists talking loud downstairs after 1am. However, maybe it was different if I had the windows closed.
- It is needed to climb up steep slopes to go to the closest tram station as it is located on the lower side of the area. But it is close to touristic areas (~10min walk)
