“At home in Istanbul!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This was our first visit to Istanbul and we absolutely loved it here at this hotel! We stayed 3 days, took a tour to Ephesus for 4 days, then returned to Dersaadet for 2 more days and it was just like coming back home! The rooms are clean and decorated Turkish style, as is the entire hotel! The rooftop terrace is a great beginning and end to every day! It is the highest point in the area and you can walk outside! The view is awesome! The breakfast is wonderful and more than adequate to start your day! Fresh fruits, cheeses, yogurts, breads, it was all great! The staff is more than helpful and friendly and always available to make your stay pleasant! We were very happy to have chosen this hotel, and should we be lucky enough to return to Istanbul, will be for certain staying here again! You will not be disappointed! It is close to many of the major attractions, walking distance, yet quiet enough at night to get a good nights rest!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor or above to get a good view of the ocean! The lower floors you will...

A perfect place for a visit to historic Istanbul. Not only was the service perfect, we also got helpful advice - and the roof-deck is a perfect place to sit and relax at the end of the day. The rooms are attractively furnished in old Turkish style, the lobby is inviting and the distances are short.

We thoroughly enjoyed the five nights we spent here in late February. Our room was spacious, and we appreciated the beautiful Turkish décor. The tile work in the bathroom was gorgeous. The staff was outstanding. The evening receptionist was wonderful about making dinner reservations for us, and everyone we encountered was welcoming and helpful. The hotel is well located, a very easy walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Tram stop. Using the map provided by the hotel, we were easily able to walk or take the tram to virtually every place we wanted to visit. The airport pick-up was very efficient. Shortly after arriving, we recognized our name on one of the signs and were in a van heading toward the hotel. The breakfast was great and the breakfast area was a lovely place to begin the day. Highly recommended.

Very nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff, great location, walking distance to most of the main attractions, but in a quiet neighbourhood. Great breakfast on roof terrace with an amazing view... We had a deluxe room with view and hamam. Very stylish decor in old Turkish style and nice big comfortable bed.

We recently stayed for a week at this boutique hotel and everything was wonderful. The location is ideal to visit all of the main sites and we enjoyed walking around the lively neighborhood with shops and restaurants. The views from the roof deck are fabulous, day and night -- we loved it for the great breakfast, afternoon relaxation and evening drinks. Since there is inside and outdoor space on the roof, you can take advantage of the views during all kinds of weather and temperatures, which isn't the case with all hotels in the area. Our room was spacious, clean and had a lovely view of the sea where we could watch the coming and going of ships and the changing tones of the sky. Best of all, the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. Especially appreciated was Busra's guidance every morning at breakfast about potential sights and activities. There are lots of choices in Istanbul, but you will not be disappointed if you choose the Dersaadet.

Had another fantastic stay at the Dersaadet. My daughter and I returned for our 6th time and as usual it was fabulous. The staff are superb and the hotel itself is lovely, clean and very welcoming!!!! I am returning again in September with my husband who had not been to Istanbul and the Dersaadet until last year and he loved it so much we are returning this year in September. The breakfast is fantastic and the views from the roof terrace are to die for. Well done to Deniz and everyone at the Derssadet they are a credit to the travel industry. Location and everything of this hotel is perfect. Thanks again to everyone cannot wait to return later this year. Jean Downs - Taunton - UK

That hotel is very cute. The personnel are very friendly. But don't ask them to find something outside the hotel for you. But in and around is perfect. A walk way of 2 minutes to the small Bazar. The lovely blue musk is just in your view on a beautiful terrace looking above that area and the sea side. The voice of Istanbul is heard from the whispering breeze.

Room Tip: Fantastic. Ask to upgrade you to a room with turkish Hammam. Just wonderful
