I have been there for one night, and if I have not got the return ticket stayed there for more. From the first moment, they were friendly and warm it didn't feel strange at all. I have booked an important in Istanbul and should go there after my arrival, but I should deposit my luggage first in the hotel, and I got late because of usually Istanbul traffic. It was near to miss the appointment. They did everything to make sure that I could make the appointment. This treat was beyond their responsibility, and it was all on their kindness, and I appreciated it. The hotel itself is cozy and comfortable, it is a medium-sized hotel, and the room for one person was convenient and clean. The environment of the hotel was very calm without extras noises. It is perfectly situated near Istiklal street and Galata tower. It takes about 15 minutes by walking to go over there. I had booked the room directly from the hotel, and I got a discount which my total bill got lower than even the bookin.com price suggestion. In general, they are extremely nice people. I highly recommend this hotel your stay would be more pleasurable by staying here and see their niceness.

This hotel was great. The customer service was exquisite and helped you with anything you needed. The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast was amazing. Everything tasted great and gave you a good experience of Turkish culture. The lemonade was the best lemonade I ever had. It tastes like pure lemonade that wasn’t filled with sugar and chemicals like American lemonade. The Turkish coffe was authentic and tasted amazing. Everything about the hotel is amazing. It would be hard to find a hotel as good as this one.

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in!! Extremely friendly and courteous staff who shocked me with their amazing communication skills! They spoke English, urdu, Turkish, and probably more. They provided us with AMAZING food delivered straight to the hotel for great prices (better quality AND 1/3 the price of restaurants a few feet away near the bay). They accommodated any needs we had immediately and easily free of charge including providing us with a power adapter to charge our phones, providing extra room keys, etc. They offer transportation to the airport for half the price of any taxi you can find in the city and are very knowledgeable about anything you might want to know. They’ll recommend great attractions and are more than happy to advise you with any questions you may have on your trip. I’ve stayed in extremely nice hotels and some not so nice ones but I am 100% confident that this hotel is a considerably better choice than any big name brand or 5-star hotel you may find. They provide excellent service, spacious clean rooms, great prices, and you get a true slice of Turkish culture talking to the extremely friendly staff! I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Turkey and honestly guarantee you will be happy you listened. 6/5 stars!!

Staying at this hotel in Istanbul was one of the best decisions we took... we first book this hotel from 29th march to 4th april 2021....on our way back after travelling to cappadocia, izmir and pammukkale we again stayed in this hotel from 13th april to 16th april.....THE STAY WAS AWESOME.....This hotel is run by a family....and most of the time you will find the owner at the reception desk assisting guests with so much of decency and humility....all other staff of the hotel are quite nice and helpful.....any time in the night you can ask for help....we were in the habit of drinking tea in the night and they were always available with extra milk pouches with a smiling face....in many hotels i notice staff starts making faces when its too night..not in doruk palas.... The location of the hotel is quite nice.....sishane metro station is a 5 minute walk from the hotel...you don't need to take a taxi for going anywhere in istanbul....just 5 minutes to metro through which most of the city is accessible in a lesser time than what taxi would take...we tried both taxi and metro and we would recommend metro.... Also galata tower is a 5 minutes walk from hotel and from there istiklal street starts....so the hotel is at walkable distance from istiklal....you have many dinner and lunch options at istiklal....Our bad luck was that due to lockdown restaurants were only giving takeaway and after 7 in the evening shops were closed so we sort of missed the night life... the karakoy tram station is a 10 minutes walk from hotel which is directly connected to sultanmehmet grand bazaar and hagia sophia....the karakoy pier is just beneath karakoy tram from where you can catch a boat to asian side.... The view from rooms at 3rd and 4th floor are really good....its sort of an ocean view and you will like looking out of the window at night and in the morning specially..... Getting a CORONA test was also easy...the hotel arranged it for 300 liras....the airport pick and drop from hotel is also available at a very reasonable cost... Some issues with the hotel - 1. Some people may find the rooms small if they are habitual to living in too large rooms.. as we live in mumbai for us it was not a problem.. 2. As I am a youtuber and have to uplaod video files of approx 2gb on internet...hotel wifi speed was good but not excellent...you can surf youtube and netflix without buffering....but if you need ultra high internet speeds go for a turktelecom sim whose speeds are really high... SO YOU CAN BOOK THIS HOTEL WITHOUT A DOUBT IN YOUR MIND...THANK YOU DORUK PALAS FOR THE BEST SERVICE......
