We travelled from Dublin to visit Istanbul for the first time. Straight away we were upgraded to a suite. Staff were always very friendly. The rooftop bar is a little expensive for drinks and food but not crazy prices all the same. The pool, steam room and sauna are all good, very relaxing. The location is about 10 minutes walk...

Darkhill was one of the few hotels one could get a 4 bed room. It was a big room but did not have a few as we thought it would. The people are friendly and helpful. We made use of the pool almost everyday. The restaurant was also nice. The location is convinient but Istanbul has many attraktive areas one... More

Good hotel, fairly basic 4 star, but in a very convenient location 5 mins walk from Grand Bazaar Beyazit entrance. We had a family room on 6th floor - fine, with enough room. Very good shower. We did enjoy and make good use of the basement pool, sauna and hammam room and my wife enjoyed a good massage there and... More

This hotel is well located close to Istanbul's ancient town. The hotel is ansolutely okay , fair, reasonably clean and inexpensive. However, we see no element that makes the hotel special or above average. We were disappointed not to get a non-smoking room, although we ordered one.
