Istanbul's Mavi Ev ('Blue House') Hotel is right across the street from the Blue Mosque. When I looked out my Mavi Ev hotel room window, here's what I saw:
Spectacular! Not all rooms have an identical view, of course, but no matter what the view from your hotel room window, you can get an even better view of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara from the hotel's rooftop terrace restaurant.
