- Rooms are very cosy
- Bathroom and Sheets are very clean
- Hospitable Staff: we felt like we were staying with distant cousins
- 2 min walk to Istiklal Street
- Small Elevator
- Minimal Breakfast
- Area didn't feel safe at night when Istanbul is in an edgy pre-riot mode
- Overpriced

Room Tip: There are 2 buildings that are owned by the hosts. Choose "Luce di Pera" because it has a...

Seriously, stop your search now and book Deniz and Ali's 'Dila Suites', if you can get in.

The room was superb, the rooftop breakfasts delicious, and location great, but it was Deniz and Ali's amazing hospitality and advice on their beautiful city of Istanbul that made our stay here truly great.

Seriously, book now.

Deniz and Ali, our hosts, really made our stay in Istanbul a highlight. We enjoyed our private conversations shared over a delicious partly homemade breakfast. They went out their way to ensure we went to the best places, restaurant recommendations and things to do. They made arrangements for us with the Hamman and even accompanied us on our first night to their favourite restaurant.
Beds were amazingly comfortable, every detail is looked after, bathroom looks like a spa, everything was impeccable. We would very much like to come back to Istanbul and if so, we would definitely stay with them again! Thanks Deniz & Ali, we await for you in Santiago de Chile!

We stayed here for 4 nights while visiting Turkey in October 2013. The hotel is located in close proximity to Istiklal Street and all the tourist attractions including the old town are just a few tram stops away. Deniz and Ali were very helpful in giving us tips on restaurants and things to do. Our room was very spacious and very clean. We had some trouble finding the hotel at first as it is located in a small lane just off the main street. The breakfast was great and was freshly prepared by Deniz everyday. Would highly recommend Dila Suites!!!

The restored townhouse is lovely but the highlight of the stay is the welcome from Deniz and Ali. Deniz went out of her way to ensure our stay in Istanbul was perfect in every way, arranging transportation, restaurant reservations, hummam reservations and giving us a tour of the lively neighborhood. Our flight was delayed causing us to arrive 12 hours late. Even tho it was nearly 3 am, Ali was waiting up for us and ensured we were comfortably settled in. The location is in the heart of New Town which means it can be noisy. I highly recommend staying at Dila Suites.

A lovely hotel with a fantastic location. A perfect place to stay in if you want to feel the pulse of Istanbul and be served by professional and kind hotelstaff. The hotelbreakfast was good and the ottoman design of the interior was delightful.

Deniz and Ali were gracious hosts in their lovely boutique b&b. The location was excellent for restaurants and shopping, with the major sites a train ride away. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Our room (second floor) was spacious and clean and their restored townhouse was delightful. We would recommend staying at Dila Suites on your next trip to Istanbul.
