We now have to find a new place to stay in Istanbul, in about two weeks now. We received this email last night:
"We are writing to inform you on behalf of Blue House Hotel Management (Colpan Tourism ), our Blue House Hotel Istanbul has ceased its activities from October 01, 2016.
Because of 2016 events in Turkey the tourism business was unfortunately decreasing day by day. We have tried to survive until today but very sadly the management have to take this decision as there is no other solution at this current situation.
On this step, we have to cancel all the confirmed bookings (and the airport transfer arrangements if you have) from October 01.
Please note that as your booking has been made as a non-refundable option, the charged amount is going to refund to your card account within 1-7 days. Because of the correspondences relating to the bank and its procedures, it may take to see more than 7 days at your account. So that please contact us if you will have any problem than we will contact with our bank.
We are really very sorry for this disappointed situation and we kindly ask you to understand our position. We hope your plans do not effected with this and you will be able to easily re-arrange your vacation.
