We took long time to choose hotel, because of the special meaning of our visit to Istanbul: 10th year anniversary of a wedding day! After several searches from the net, we always came up to Darussaade, mainly because of it's location in the middle of historical Sultanahmet together with reasonable charge and glamorous old-fashioned look. What could be better way... More

This is a terrific hotel and reasonably priced for the value! It's a restored mansion and most of the rooms are unique. It's new, clean and very close the the Blue Mosque (you can hear the call to prayer), the Hagia Sofia and more. The breakfast is fresh and filling and part of the room charge. Best of all: the...

We had a lovely stay at at the Darussaade Hotel, the staff we incredibly helpful, when we arrived we got tea and they sat us down with a map showing us all the local places. The room was deorated well, and we really appreciated the pick up from the airport. The location was brilliant near all the main attractions.

The Darussaade is a very well run, well appointed hotel within easy walking distance of Istanbul's main attractions. This is the old section of town where every hotel of any size is made up of more than one building so you are dealing with multiple levels and stairs. Still, they have a nice new elevator so there isn't a problem... More

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights at the start of June. From the beginning, Yusuf and Erson made us very welcome and arranged 3 tours for us; which were well worth it. The central location makes it ideal for all the attractions of the Old City, which are nearby. The hotel is very clean and the staff... More

Read any of the reviews for this hotel and you will see time and time again the use of superlatives to describe the Darussaade . I agree completely that the high praise heaped upon this charming hotel is well deserved.. We stayed there for three nights in May .The brief was to find a decent hotel suitable for a city... More

From the moment I walked in and was greeted by the staff in reception, everything was great. The rooms are a little small, but well-furnished, clean and comfortable. The hotel is nicely-located. It's a short walk to the Blue Mosque and the tram station, and there are at least 30 restaurants within a 5-minute walk. And it was quiet, which... More
