I loved my stay in Blue Hotel.Posted Nov 17, 2013
It could hardly be more central to the sights - and my room, though small - was fine for me, solo and very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a feast and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The views to the Blue Mosque (200m away) and the Sea of Marmara from my room - and even more from the rooftop restaurant/bar were stunning. Coming from 3 months overlanding from China through Central Asia, there couldn't have been a better journey's end for a weary trekker! Thank you very much! Having travelled in Turkey five times now, I'm sure I'll be back. And I know where I'm headed in Istanbul

Good locationPosted Jul 11, 2013
Pros: The location
Cons: The cramped shower
Location: Good base for sightseeing in the Sultanahmet area
The Blue House Hotel is well located within very close walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and the Topkapi Palace. The hotel is neat and clean and well-staffed. The room was very nice but lacked tea/coffee-making facilities one would normally expect in similar establishment. One drawback was the design and layout of the shower, which effectively required climbing over the toilet to get in and out. For less agile guests, this may pose a safety hazzard. Nonetheless, overall, we had an enjoyable stay.

Superb location in the old townPosted Jun 2, 2013
Pros: The rooftop restaurant
Cons: The bathroom
The staff were incredibly friendly and gave us sensible transport advice. The breakfasts were more than adequate but dinner left something to be desired. Our main complaint would be the bathroom - it was very difficult to get into the shower because the toilet had been positioned at 45degrees across the opening - we're not totally sure why as all the toilet necessities were on the side wall and therefore hard to reach. Would I go back? Yes, if I wanted to stay in Sultanamet and could be assured of a sensible bathroom.

In the heart of old IstanbulPosted Apr 26, 2013
Pros: The staff.
Cons: Under developed dining (but plenty of good resturants all around).
Fanatastic location within walking distance of the main attractions. Wonderful staff and a very freindly feel. The accomadation and facilities are adaquate rather than luxurious but non-the-worse for that. Would definitely stay there again.

Fabulous hotel - great locationPosted Apr 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a fabulous stay at the Blue House Hotel. We were lucky enough to have a room overlooking the Blue Mosque. The staff were friendly and always attentive. Breakfast was great as well. I would highly recommend this hotel and we would definately stay here on our next trip to Istanbul.

Location, service, cleanlinessPosted Dec 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
The Blue House Hotel was an excellent find on our trip. Situated next to Aya Sphia and the Blue Mosque, we were close to everything. The hotel is super clean and well-maintained. The only thinhg I must mention is that the bathrooms are quite small and an elderly person might have some trouble getting out of the shower as it opens next to the toilet. Aside form that, I couldn't ask for a more hospital hotel.

Very central location for the major sights. Decor throughout fairly dated but clean. Friendly staff but the best part is the rooftop terrace with a brilliant view of the Blue Mosque.
