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... More

Hotel is very clean and the service of especially mr. Emre and mr. Ayhan was amazing. The restaurant and the view was amazing too. The people were very friendly and helpful every time. The brake fast was European standard.

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.

This hotel is central and the restaurant has view that is to die for. My room could have been cleaner and the food was a bit boring - but I may have ordered non-Turkish food which could have caused the problem.

Arcadia Blue is located in the centre of Sultanahmet - so within a block of the Blue Mosque and walkable to Grand Bazaar and within a couple of blocks to a tram station to take you further afield. Hotel is very clean and well-maintained. It has perhaps the best views of all hotels in Istanbul with rooms on the 7th... More

nice hotel, friendly staff, and clean rooms. The hotel is very close to most attractions -walking distance-. Amazing view from the 9th floor! However Internet connection is very poor. I would recommend the hotel. (Book your room on a higher floor)

Great location with amazing views from the top floor! Friendly staff. Most of the places of interest were nearby and of walking distance. Breakfast would have been good if it was a bit more varied. Usually the same everyday. Spa area was not available so can't comment on that.

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.
