We had bad experience from the very beginning. I had organized a pick up service from the airport and they left us stranded for more than an hour. We ended up taking a taxi only to discover upon arrival they never sent the driver! First unacceptable event. Then we (three adults) stayed in the creme de la creme of rooms:... More

Easily one of the worst hotels in which I have every stayed. Everything from the cleanliness to the lack of functioning air conditioning to the meeting space to the noise level (despite the busy neighborhood, there are plenty of hotels in this area that manage to block the vast majority of the noise) was a huge disappointment. The difference between... More

Great experience at Palazzo Donizetti. Very nice staff and organised. We spent with my family 9 cool days. The place is Central and well equipped. Don't miss the sauna too! Great terrace for the breakfast.

This hotel was an amazing find, with a courteous staff, a well-appointed room, comfy bed, and an in-house hamam. We had a great time, able to walk anywhere in Beyoglu and easily catch the funicular or metro. Coming back to the room each night was a fulfilling and welcome finish to our long days.

Comfy beds, spacious room and beautifully furnished throughout. Accepting the noisy location due to wine bars and cafés (goes quiet after 1am), the location is great for Istiklal (tram, shops, etc) and only a short taxi ride to Topkpi, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. Concierge and maintainance man were more helpful and seemed to work harder (with a smile) at... More

Palazzio Donizetti Hotel and Hotelsclick scammed us by luring us to the hotel and allowing us to stay then telling us on the third night the rate is not agreed and we have to pay double! From Hotelclick's website they say... Why are the prices of HotelsClick lower than the prices shown on the hotel sites? Hotelsclick operates as a... More

I have just spent the last hour listening to the hotel manager literally screaming at me down the phone. Why? Because I booked a room with Hotelsclick and he didn't want to accept the price I'd paid. We were offered a good deal on hotelsclick website on a Saturday afternoon. We arrived at the hotel about an hour after our... More

my experience with the hotel staff and services have been great. Staff is very nice and helpful. Most important they are very kind. Location of the hotel is great. It's close to many museums, shopping places and restaurants.
