We stayed at the Mavi Ev Hotel for 5 nights in April, 2014. It was our 7th visit to the city but our first stay in this hotel
The rooms are a fair size by Istanbul Sultanahmet standards, well furnished and well maintained. The staff are excellent. Breakfast is good with both European and Turkish items.
The position, between the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus, across the road from the Arasta Bazaar, is hard to beat.
The roof bar and restaurant offers a good choice of menu for snacks, lunch or dinner.
We would certainly stay thee again.

We loved the Blue House and will definitely stay there again. The staff members are so attentive and friendly. They contacted me personally before we arrived in Istanbul to offer transportation services, which we utilized. We had a little difficulty hooking up with our driver, but my calls to the hotel were very helpful. The rooms are small, but the hotel is clean and cozy. The view of the Blue Mosque is so special. I, too, was worried about the first morning call to prayer, but it was not at all disruptive to sleep. After the first night, we heard it but slept through it at the same time. The front desk will help you with any concerns and will call taxis for you. This is very helpful because not all Istanbul taxis are the same. You want one with a meter. Another advantage of the location is that it is near many boutique shops and restaurants in a very interesting part of the old city. Right across the street is the Arasta Bazaar, which is a much smaller version of the Grand Bazaar. We liked it for the very reason that it is so easy to navigate. We'd still recommend visiting the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar, but, for serious souvenir and gift shopping, Arasta is so easy and the shops are nice. The Mosaic Museum is inside the Bazaar and that, too, is an interesting small place to visit. All-in-all, we recommend Blue House if you like boutique hotels in great locations.

This hotel is within a two minute walk to the Blue Mosque, three minutes to the Aya Sofia Mosque, five minutes from the Yerebatan Cistern, the tram to Galata Bridge and tower is five minutes away, and there is an abundance of shops and restaurants within five minutes of the front door.
We stayed here for a total of seven nights and we liked the hotel very mucho the check-in was fast and assistance was provided to get bags into your room without anyone having a hand out for a tip. The room was very comfortable and clean, the bathroom was well appointed, small, but very clean and with all the necessary requirements . The hotel has an excellent rooftop terrace where you can relax with a drink or have a meal while taking in the fantastic view of the Blue Mosque. Breakfast is served downstairs in the Lobby area, and again, there is an outside option for those wanting to dine alfresco. I would recommend this hotel to fellow travellers who want a smaller hotel with a more personal level of service.

We stayed for 5 nights and were very happy with the location and the view. The room was a little small but very clean and comfortable. The view from the room and roof make the hotel the best place to stay in the old city. We were a little worried about the 5 am call to prayer but ended up finding it peaceful. The staff was all very nice and the breakfast had a ton of options. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
