Blue House Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

One of the best hotels... staff was extremely cooperative... very neat and clean rooms... minute away from blue mosque and hagia Sophia... majestic rooftop view .... a very good breakfast ... overall an excellent place to stay...rooms are slightly cramped with quaint furniture... but pros outweigh the cons... highly recommended for a family stay

Even though we stayed for one night I can say that I totally recommend this hotel and I will surely come back even if just to drink coffee. Absolutely amazing. Great service! Clean and cozy. Great, quiet location. Amazing view. The atmosphere is just lovely! Loved everything about it! My favorite hotel so far!

Had some issues from the beginning. Tried contacting the Blue House team to arrange for airport transfers several times but never got a response. Had to arrange for my own transfers. Also, requested for their help to book a hamam and was very specific about the hamam I wanted to go to, but was taken to a totally different, more inferior one. The location of the hotel was good, but the bathrooms were tiny.

The Blue House is a restored 19th century mansion which is why its exterior is so beautiful. Inside the amenities are excellent. The location must be the best in Istanbul. It is just below the Blue Mosque and close to Aghia Sophia. Across the street is a family restaurant with whirling Dervish performances nightly and an excellent small but comprehensive bazaar — an outstanding shopping Mecca. The manager of the Blue House is professional and approachable and oversees a friendly and efficient staff. The chef meets with guests and makes sure they are, as he says to them, “happy”, with his offerings including favourite omelettes for breakfast as well as classics and traditional and delicious Turkish specialities in the roof top restaurant which has one of the best views in town. The rooms are attractively appointed and comfortable. The small suite is outstanding so do try it if you can as it will add a special dimension of comfort to your trip. I wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else. I have stayed many times and every time I leave I look forward to my next trip to Istanbul and to more delightful days at the Blue House.

I and extended family stayed at the Blue House Hotel in Istanbul for 3 days. I cant recommend this place more. Clean, tidy, everyone very hospitable and friendly and the buffet breakfast is second to none. The place itself is in the old town and very close to everything yet far enough away as to not get any noise.Do yourself a favour and definitely book in some nights here.

I stayed a week in Istanbul and arrived at the Blue House hotel and it has been one of my best hotel experiences. I am a chef and I travel to all parts of the world to know their gastronomy and they made my trip a great experience with comfort and excellent service. the hotel is located very close to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue musque also it is close to all the important places to visit. but the wonderful thing about this hotel is its personalized attention, they guide you take care of it and you have the best recommendations of restsurantes schedules and everything you need at the best prices of istanbul. If you want a hotel at a good price with the best location and the best service Blue House is the best option

Gorgeous hotel, very central, rooms extremely clean with some astounding views of Blue Mosque. Buffet breakfast is delicious, plenty of variety, with different offerings every day. Perfect location, 100m from Blue Mosque & Haggia Sofia museum and most other interesting sites. Staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Airport transfers can also be arranged on request at very reasonable rates. Can also book rooms directly at a reasonable rate. Already been back since 1st visit and can't wait to return again. Was made to feel very welcome as a single traveller but hotel is also very family friendly, highly recommended.

Service was great. We stayed in room 45 which is a suite which has quite a bit more room and also a lovely view of the Blue Mosque. Waking up to the call to prayer with the Blue Mosque in your sight is magical ! Easy walking distance to ALL major sights. Front desk guys were so helpful with arranging our transports to and from the airport. They help with exchanging currency, even made us a breakfast at 2:00 am before we left for the airport for our 5:30am flight. Rooms are clean with all amenities. Regular rooms are a bit small which is why we opted for the suite. Worth the extra cost. Would book with this hotel again in future.

This is first of all a perfect location if you want to look out at the Blue Mosque and the square. In fact, get studio unit 45 as we did for 10 days to see it all. Besides location this is a well cared for, mid to small sized facility on a near dead end street with lots of other hotels and restaurants. My partner has stayed there some thing like 10 times. There is also roof top dinning. The price is quite reasonable and a good breakfast is included. Be warned that the regular rooms are small--not London small but still small--so consider the suite. Most important were truly superior staff. I note especially Timur and Kamelya but regret not getting names of others. This is a great place committed to its guests.

This hotel is about 400 yards from the tram stop, which offers a connection (with 1 change) to Ataturk Airport. The room we were given (36) had a superb view of the Blue Mosque, however it was just a little on the small size and the bathroom was definitely on the small size, the toilet was right in front of the shower and you had to clamber over it to get into the shower, also you had to sit on the toilet at an angle. Everything was clean though. The furniture in the room was a little dated. Breakfast was a little ordinary, but it was included in the room price. Surprisingly enough considering it was Turkey, there was only instant coffee available. The staff were extremely helpful. The location was brilliant, within easy walking distance of most things. I would certainly stay there again !
