This was just what we were looking for. Clean and central with charming most helpful staff always willing to help in whatever way possible. We loved the idea of them always offering tea and coffee with something to snack on while we waited for buses or taxi. Breakfast was excellent and the location just what we wanted, within a short...

In short, its a nice hotel in a nice location.Staff is courteous and helpful (especially octay).Room was a tad small but the view was gorgeous. The terrace restaurant is great with sweeping views of the sea but is expensive compared to the numerous options in the neighborhood. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and a good supermarket within walking distance.... More

The location is really great - within walking distance to most of the great sites in Istanbul, but off enough to be quiet. However the bathroom had dozens of little flying bugs. The breakfast area was very small so we had to wait - on the last day we decided not to eat there because it wasn't very good anyway.

We stayed at this hotel upon arrival in Istanbul, and again before we departed Turkey. The location of the hotel really cannot be beat. Its close enough to the action to be a short walk away, yet far enough away to be quiet at night. The view from the roof deck is amazing. The staff was kind - particularly on... More

Well located for easy access to all the features of Old Istanbul we stayed there for five or six nights over two separate occasions. Welcoming staff were very friendly and helpful. Dining room staff less-so. The younger "assistant" gave the impression of being on a much-resented work-experience assignment. The view from the roof-bar is excellent. Trying to get served up...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in late June 2014. The staff were very helpful, the room well furnished with a great view of the Bosphorous. The roof top terrace/bar has amazing views. Breakfast was a continental self service. This hotel is perfectly placed for quick access to the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace all within... More

Stayed at Daphne for 3 nights during my stop in Istanbul. Some rooms in the hotel have a fantastic view of the sea , and all beds are really comfortable and its easy to go to sleep! However, not all of the staff speak english properly and some of them are quite short-tempered , so communication is not always easy

Great hotel, central in Sultanahmet, just 3 mins walk to Blue Mosque etc...great sized rooms too. We stayed here for just one night and regret that we stayed at another hotel when we were here last. And most importantly, fantastic view of the sea...don't miss having dinner on the terrace- its gorgeous. Total Paisa Vasool as they say in Hindi:))

Stayed at the Daphne for two nights in June. The hotel is in a quiet part of Sultanahmet, but very close to the action. The room was quite large and very comfortable. Not a big deal, but the hotel staff did seem rather indifferent toward the guests; ranging from at best slightly bored, to at worst slightly annoyed.
