Amazing location, withing walking distance from anywhere (very close to the tram too)' but we were put in a basement room, underneath the reception, it was too noisy, especially at night. Other than that, the air-con (which was the only source of warmth) did not work, neither did the TV (only showed 5 channels, all of them with local soaps). Staff are very friendly and will try to help every time.

Well located,renovated, cheap rates, you can't go wrong with this hotel! About quietness, the only caveat was this noisy family with children shouting repeatedly in the middle of the night... But the surroundings are quiet so we guess it's bad luck.

It would be beneficial to provide a map to the hotel from the nearest tram station and also describe the various modes of transportation by which one can get to the hotel. We took the subway and tram but had a hard time finding the hotel from the tram stop. Breakfast was wholesome. The A/C in the room was not that effective. The location of the hotel was ideal, could go on foot to some of the main attractions.

The hotel is in the central area of Istanbul. Excellent location, all the major attractions nearby. Generally very calm, as opposed to some of the main streets. Staff is friendly and kind, ready to help you any time. There is only one thing that is negative: never take the basement (budget) rooms, they are small, and dark, no real windows. We had one of them for two nights. If you stay only overnight, it is ok, but otherwise avoid it. Luckily, the staff was very flexible, and we were given another room, much more spacious and a lot of extras. Also, the hotel is located not very far from Marmara, which means you get a bit more of fresh sea air. In general, we had a good time.

The hotel is very nice, the rooms are very clean, and the breakfast was very complet. I definetly recomend to stay in Blue Istambul Hotel.

The Hotel is located in walking distance (5 mins) to Ayasofia and the Blue Mosque, even the Grand Basar is only 15 minutes to walk. Although, there is no main street next to the hotel and the area very quiet. The staff was extremely friendly. They helped us with everything we asked for. The transport to the airport was perfectly well organized. The hotel is highly recommendable!

Everything was perfect at the new hotel from the first until the last day. The hotel is central located, in a quite street, 40 m from Tram station Sultanahmet, 7 minutes walk from main sites, such as Topkapi, Blue Mosque,etc. Rooms were very clean and the bathroom was very modern. LCD Satellite TV, minibar, all the necessary was there. The sleep was very silent, since the sound isolation of the rooms was perfect. Breakfast was very fresh and various.The staff of the hotel was extremely helpful and very friendly. A special thanks goes to the Manager, , who took care of everything. I would come back again!
