“Fantastic trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Diva's Hotel is a lovely hotel, from the outside it looks very plain, but inside it is beautiful. It has a lovely garden courtyard by the breakfast area, great for relaxing after a day of exploring. Its smallish rooms are very comfortable and attractively decorated and, though the ultra-modern wash basins need careful handling, the walk-in showers are hot and strong. Breakfast (included) is varied and plentiful with many tasty Turkish additions, though, at peak times, there is sometimes a short wait for the fresh coffee. The standard of service and care is exceptionally good - luggage transported, attractions booked and plenty of help with reconfirming flights and all other travel needs. The staff are welcoming and helpful especially Hikmet , Fuat. If you have any problems go to Sidar Yasar the sales manager. The "front-of house' team are knowledgeable and full of useful suggestions to enhance a stay. Some of the rooms have no view and can be rather dark and it is well worth paying the reasonable supplement for a room with a balcony that commands an extensive panorama of a mosque and the sea. My wife and I enjoyed our three nights in this hotel very much and would certainly be happy to stay there again.

Despite staff being friendly and helpful, the hotel itself was disappointing. In our room the shower recess was grotty with mould and there was a water leak in the shower hose: the airconditioner hardly worked at all and that would make things intollerable in summer. The breakfast, while adequate, was way down on others we experienced during our three weeks in Turkey. Greg Pullen, Brighton, Victoria, Australia.

Room Tip: There is no lift, so you will need to be fit to access your rome if you are comong and going through...

Diva's Hotel is very different from an anonymous box. Centred on a charming garden courtyard, it is a place of ethnicity and character with a delightfully cosmopoltan clientel.. Its smallish rooms are very comfortable and attractively decorated and, though the ultra-modern wash basins need careful handling, the walk-in showers are hot and strong. Breakfast (included) is varied and plentiful with many tasty Turkish additions, though, at peak times,, there is sometimes a short wait for the freshly-filtered coffee. The standard of service and care is exceptionally good - luggage transported, attractions booked and plenty of help with reconfirming flights and all other travel needs. The staff are all most welcoming and helpful and the "front-of house' team is knowledgeable and full of useful suggestions to enhance a stay. Some of the rooms have no view and can be rather dark and it is well worth paying the reasonable supplement for a room with a balcony that commands an extensive panorama of mosque and sea. My wife and I enjoyed our week in this hotel very much and came to regard it as a home from home. We would certainly be happy to stay there again.

We spent 8 days here in August. This was our first stay at Diva's Hotel and I may say that we liked it from the very beginning because, although the check in was from 1:00 pm, we arrived from the airport early in the morning and were accommodated immediately.So, we had a whole fist day at our disposal to go sightseeing.More than that, we were shown several rooms and chose one on the third floor. After a few days we could move to a much better room, on the 5th floor, overlooking the harbour.The view at night was breathtaking. We also liked the Lemony Garden a lot. The location was excellent.
Everybody was very helpful, especially SIDAR YASAR, the Sales & Marketing manager, whom we would like to consider our friend from now on.:))

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the fifth floor, with a balcony overlooking the sea.

The view over the old city, harbor and Sea of Marmara is really magnificent.
The garden is nice to chill out or eat breakfast which is very nice.

In case of problems go to Sidar Yasar the sales manager, she helped us get
the room we wanted and she is very charming.
