This hotel was an excellent choice. The value-to-cost ratio is great considering location, room, restaurant on the ninth floor. Check-in went smoothly even though the receptionist tried to talk us into hiring a guide/translator to take us around to the museums, mosques, attractions the next day. I'm glad I turned it down because we did pretty well on our own....

We had a fantastic experience at Hotel Arcadia Blue. Phenomenal service. Ayhaan from the hotel staff was a delight. He was friendly and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. The restaurant and breakfast area probably has the best views in Sultan Ahmet . The rooms were comfortable and clean. Highly recommended.

Don't be fooled by the modern interiors and the plush photos. Deceptively decent looking, the stench in the room from the bathroom mold kills any view you might be admiring. PROS: Rooftop bar has a great view Room is decently laid out Location is centre of Sultanahmet CONS: BATHROOMS - You're better off at a public toilet. The bathrooms are...

Arrived late into Istanbul, greeted warmly and given top floor room with stunning uninterrupted panoramic views of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia only a few hundred yards away with Topkapi Palace in the middle distance.

I'm the kind of traveler who attaches great importance to the place where I stay. In this sense, Arcadia Blue Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Istanbul! The view from the restaurant on the ninth floor is famous throughout the city and, if you give the good fortune to stay in a front room on the seventh or...

We were unexpectedly stranded in Istanbul (flight issues), and with a friend's help, found this hotel. We were on the 5th floor, and when we opened the curtains, there was the Blue mosque, all lit up. We could see the Hagia Sophia as well. The room had good beds, adequate bathroom, and good internet connection. The food in the hotel...

The view from the restaurant is amazing. Room is nice and clean. The breakfast is boring and wifi a little off. Will recommend it any time though. Value for money and perfect location close to Hagia Sophia and Blue mosque. Helpful hotel staff.

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.
