Blue Istanbul Hotel
Ranked #424 of 1,113 Istanbul B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Hello!
We are three Italian girls and we stayed in this hotel for 6 days, for us, this hotel was perfect in all respects.
The rooms were cleaned every day and the staff has always been courteous and helpful with us.
The breakfast is plentiful and full of typical foods.
The hotel's location is very convenient because it allows you to reach in a short time in the key places of the city on foot.
The areas in which it is located is safe even at night and people are very willing to help you.
In short, this was a great trip and we can not wait to go again, here we felt at home!

We stayed here in September 2011, we were one of the first guests to stay and they were fantastic, a perfect start to our honeymoon. Rooms were beautiful, breakfast was lovely. Waking up to the sound of morning prayers couldn't have asked for anything more. It is on a back street but so close to everything. Hope to go back for anniversary next year. Thank you guys!

The hotel is off the main tourist street, but the value and quality of the room is great. We stayed there a couple of days and the service and breakfast were first class. Would stay again if in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Come out of the hotel, turn right and 5 min walk to Sultan Ahmet

The hotel is really good. I went there with my friend, had a sea view room. Everything was perfect, from hospitality to cleanliness to staff. The location is great, we would only walk for few minutes to reach stores and restaurants as well as historical mosques. I definitely recommend this hotel and would go back again! Thanks

Room Tip: Sea View rooms are nice

I loved this hotel very much!!! My room was very nice and comfortable as well as clean and beautifully decorated. And it's really cheap. The hotel room has everything in it: tea, coffee, safe, internet, refrigerator and a lot more and it's all free! Usually you have to pay extra in other hotels. It was cleaned every day. The location is perfect in Sultanahmet. Everything is there in walk-able distance. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Fantastic breakfast with a variety of things to choose from including traditional Turkish tea and coffee, which tested amazing! I couldn't be any happier, would definitely stay there again!
Thank you very very much!!!

It was difficult to find the hotel, eventhough it is close to the Chamberlitas station, it is located in a not really nice street. We arrived during night and was not a good impression. The hotel doesn;t have amenities and the lobby is really small so definetly not a place where you can stay or hang out. The room with sea view was small, but clean, and similar to the picture showed in the website, so was not a surprise. The bathroom had a good shower, but again, all small. It's a standard hotel, may be you can find a better hotel, in a better location for the same price.

I along with my 4 friends stayed in this Hotel from 24th Jan till 27 Jan 2014.

The services in the hotel were pathetic.

Only Good thing about the hotel is the location.

Please find below issues which we found.

1. Wi-Fi not working in the rooms. WiFi only working in Reception. We requested to Hotel management to fix this on every day. But it was not fixed in 3 days. We called receptionist to fix the issue or connect our call to Hotel Owner. His respose was "I am owner of the Hotel. WiFI will fix in 2 days. In turkey It happens like this only. The level of Hospitality was unexpected from the hotel.

2. We booked double delux apartment. But there was common door to 2 apartments. The guests in the other department closed the door from inside. In night, we had to wait for 30 minutes to enter the room.

3. Only 3 Towels & 2 Blankets were kept in Rooms for 5 people.

4. Mini Bar was empty & switched off. We called Receptionist about this. Response : "We dont know about the minibar". We had to bring Water bottles on our own.

5. It was mentioned on booking.com that the rooms has sea view. There is no sea view from the rooms.

In nutshell this hotel is the worst hotel, i have seen in Europe.

I will suggest to Tripadvisor users to avoid booking in this hotel.
