The Mavi Ev (Blue House) is a long-standing favourite of ours, situated in a prime spot, right opposite the imposing Blue Mosque.
The Mavi Ev is a charming boutique hotel with just 26 comfortable guest rooms with en-suite shower rooms, for families, there is also a suite that can sleep up to four guests. All rooms are air-conditioned, and equipped with satellite TV, radio, direct dial telephone and mini-bar.
There is a small indoor restaurant where a buffet breakfast is served in the cooler months, and in the summer its served in the pretty garden at the front of the hotel. During the balmy summer evenings we highly recommend dining on the roof terrace restaurant, where guests can indulge in delicious Ottoman dishes whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the Blue Mosque.
Despite being a small hotel, the Mavi Ev boasts 3 charming restaurants. A plentiful buffet breakfast is served in the indoor restaurant in cooler months, there is also the garden restaurant with fabulous views over the Blue Mosque and our favourite, has to be the terrace restaurant with breath-taking views out to sea and of the imposing Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. The terrace restaurant is open from May until October.
In the lobby there is a computer with high speed connection for guests’ use and wifi access throughout the hotel.
