I was passing by this place many times( I was living in center) ones I decided to come in just because I was curious to know how is the service in so famous restaurant, how is the F&B ... Be honest I was not satisfied for 100% but I stayed just because of the view.

I am not a fan of hotel restaurants, but this doesn't apply to the terrace restaurant of the Blue House Hotel. This restaurant is at the top level of the small and charming Blue House Hotel, right at the very heart of the Old Town and has commanding views of Blue Mosque. View is expansive. They did all they can... More

Popped up to the terrace for a drink while wandering round and the views were outstanding, staff were really friendly and yet there were only 2 other people up there which is a tragic waste of a beautiful spot, highly recommended

Good views of the Blue Mosque especially at night - in daytime in the summer you will get fried. The food was eatable but indifferent compared to other local places like Sofa Café.

This neat, powder blue hotel boasts a roof-top restaurant with a great view of the Blue Mosque where you can enjoy some drinks and watch the Istanbul sunset. Worth a visit!

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
