I really loved the stay in Arcadia Blue. The personell is very friendly. The food is great. The room is really nice. But the view on the mosque and the bosporus are just astonishing. A really breathtaking view during the morning watching the sun rise. I can just recommend this hotel. For myself after staying here in September 2016 I...

Friendly, basically clean (excluding the shower with just a little bit of fungus at the joint between the floor and the wall), and with the fabulous terrace on the 9 floor. To see this view when you eat your breakfast... Sultanahmet mosque right in front of you, Saint Sofia on the left, Marmar sea on the right... Gosh... You have...

The hotel was beautiful, spacious and conveniently located near the Blue Mosque which meant we could walk to see all the main sites. Dinner at the rooftop terrace was top notch with good food and wine list. The waiters were excellent and view from the restaurant was stunning with a literally picture postcard view Staying at the Arcadia Blue topped...

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...

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.
