Usually, businesses give special care to returning customers. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case here! This was my second time stay at the Blue Tuana. Bad choice it was! When I booked it was more expensive than most hotels in the same area. Yet, I preferred to book there because my first stay was nice& enjoyable. I booked a room that...

Busy The location was great and easy to find, not too close to the main road. The room was clean and looked nice. What really let it down though was the bed, which is after all mainly what you're really paying for! It seemed smaller than a double, but l was happy it was firm! Breakkie upstairs

Hotel has great location but rooms are too small, friendly staff and has a great view from breakfast room that is located on the rooftop however poor selection of food. This hotel is recomended for solo travelers with little budget.

The location is great, right next to the Blue Mosque. The staff from the reception is very helpfull. I arrived without my luggage and they helped me to retrivet it with the airport operater. The breakfast is served in the top of the hotel with a great view, but the food isn't that great. The rooms are basic but clean....

The hotel is a bit tricky to find at the beginning, but its close to really great places in Sultanahmet. Breakfast was good, but nothing special. Not so clean. The bathroom in our room had a really bad smell but we were only able to change it after 2 days when another guest checked out. There was no elevator. Overall...

This is a really good budget hotel in a great location. I would have given this hotel an excellent rating but our private airport shuttle we ordered was 30mins late and the bathroom had an unpleasant smell. These were the only negatives we had about our stay. We had originally booked the semi basement room but upgraded once we got...

I've just come back from Istanbul, where I stayed at the Blue Tuana Hotel. It turned out to be a great choice. We booked a twin bedroom, but upon arrival we were given a bedroom with a double+ twin beds. This leaves not much spaces to move around, but since we were 2 people it was OK. We stayed in...

The staff at Blue Tuana couldn't do enough for us - whatever questions we had they had the answers, any help we needed they were there for us. The breakfast meze on the terrace was a great way to start the day, with unbeatable views of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and the Marmara Sea. Rooms were cleaned daily and...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

“Stay on the 5th flr so that others dont disturb you ! But bear in mind no elevator . Pl bear in mind this is only for the proximity of the Blue mosque/ Aya Sophia . Definitely NOT to relax ,enjoy n easy going holiday . It is only meant to come in and Sleep after a long tiring day ! Certainly Not worth the money one has to pay !”
