Blu Hotel Istanbul, Istanbul
Kind staff, great location to tourist sites!
Excellent staff! I was alone, and they were all kind and helpful. They would even call out to me in the street to check if I was doing alright. The lobby is on the second floor without direct elevator access, so keep that in mind (although the staff carried my luggage for me). Really friendly staff. Clean room, just a bit small/compact. The only suggestion I have is for expanded breakfast options.

Mother, Daughter trip
The hotel is perfectly located in the old city, within a few blocks from the Ayasofya, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and Topkapi Palace. So many shops, restaurants and right out front is the tram. Perfect perfect location! The free breakfast buffet in the morning is simple so if you want to get full order something extra. Very nice staff. Only problem I had on the last day of my trip was getting the hotel to call me a cab. No cab came on time, we had to walk the streets to find a cab to take me to the airport, and then the cab driver scammed me of my money. Unfortunately I was a single female traveling alone on that day so it was a very scary experience. Not sure if the hotel could have done anything different with this situation, but I recommend planning to take the metro straight to the airport. Easier, cheaper, and much safer. Overall this hotel was a good place to stay.

Blu Hotel stay for a week 4-10/September/2017
Had a very enjoyable stay at Blu Hotel, Istanbul which is a sort of a budget hotel. The staff members are friendly & helpful. Though we missed the breakfast on the second morning as the Chef took an emergency leave, but on other days it was good. Not many options but enough to make you happy followed by Turkish coffee. Located at the heart of area of Tourists interest , just walking distance away from Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya, Bassilica Cistern, Gulhane park, Grand Bazar. Rooms are small for 2 adults but then you cannot expect too much for the low room tariff that includes breakfast. If you are on low budget, this hotel is the best.

Bad for family with kids
If you have a family, please don't go there, there is no reception room and the only entry is from the restaurant. The pub restaurant is open till 1 in the morning and it is always very unconfortable to go back to the hotel with your family because you have to pass through guest and the restaurant before reaching the hotel desk. It's very terrible experience, no matter what don't go there, any hotel you go to, should at least have its proper entry and proper reception desk.
