I chose to stay at the Hotel Arcadia Blue because of its location and how central it was, and I must say, it was probably the best decision I made! I arrived in Istanbul early morning and did some sightseeing by visiting the Grand Bazaar...More
I choose this hotel from many hotels in old city because the location is just 5-10 min walk to Hagia Sofia, Sultanahmet Mosque (or Blue Mosque). And we can enjoy the both landmark view from restaurant which serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and bar on 9th...More
Given that this is a mid-range hotel, the service, facilities and value are excellent, and what could be expected of a much more expensive hotel.
We were fortunate to get a room overlooking the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Bosphorus.........the views were breathtaking.
Can not beat the location of this hotel! Walking distance from everything in the old city, but most importantly walking distance from the tram stop. Staff were excellent and very helpful. Rooms were good. Only down point was breakfast, which could have been better

TripAdvisor is proud to partner with Expedia, Hotels.com, Booking.com, Travelocity, Hotwire, TripOnline SA, HotelQuickly and Cancelon so you can book your Hotel Arcadia Blue reservations with confidence. We help millions of travellers each month to find the perfect hotel for both holiday and business trips, always with the best discounts and special offers.
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.

We arrived in Istanbul at 9 am. Our international flight was grueling. The staff worked really hard to get us into a room as soon as one was available. That experience shows me that they are great at working with customers and their individual situation. My guess: They cannot upgrade if the room is not available or if the room is more expensive. But they accommodate as the situation allows. Good luck. Be sure to have breakfast n the hotel. It is a magnificent view.
