Dersaadet Hotel Istanbul
Ranked #6 of 1,178 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Umit behind the front desk and Omit who delivers your luggage and tends to needs during breakfast on the rooftop terrace are true professionals. We stayed 3 times for total of 5 nights over 3 week period. Each time a different room. Really don't think one needs to book anything more than the basic room with bath. All rooms have a small safe and mini refrigirator. Air conditioning works well. The breakfast had many fresh fruits, cheese, cereals. breads and boiled eggs. Great view of the of west entrance into Bosporous and Istanbul (Asia side across the wster).
Good working elevator.

Umit knows a real good travel agent office near by. We were able to make several arangements to Capadoucia, Kusadasi, Epheses, Pummakale & Fethiye through that agent. All went off precise pickups. air bookings, land transport and hotels.

The Dersaadet is a great place to stay for those just arriving from out of country who have never travelled to Turkey or who have some trepidation. A big thumbs up!

this is a small hotel located very close to the blue mosque in the old city, the location is on a side street so away from noise, the overall experience was great staying at this hotel, the rooms are small but they do have lovely bathrooms and you can always relax in the downstairs lounge.the hotel is decorated nicely in old ottoman style so don't expect the modern look, but it does provide free wifi and laptop in the lounge for customer use.
the rooms have plenty of complimentary items,ie slippers, shampoo, lotion, hair dryer , towels, gowns, body loofah, pumice stones, shower caps, soaps and even a security safe which you program with your own code. the roof terrace is where you have breakfast and has great views with a wide selection of food to start the day off with.the staff are very professional and polite and our manager UMIT, was especially helpful and gave great advice, overall experience was one of relaxation, security, good food, cleanliness and great location

After a long flight, we were warmely welcomed to hotel by English speaking staff. We were served Turkish apple tea in the lobby and then shown to our sea view rooms. Rooms were well decorated and well equipped with a modern and spacious bathroom. Special nice touches included a hiotel safe, mini frig and slippers. We spent our early mornings eating a great breakfast on the roof top and our late evening with drinks and snacks on the roof top terrace. Location was very close to all major attractions and yet quiet being on a side street. Hotel offered free airport transport as we stayed at least 4 days. Can't think of a better place to have stayed to explore Istanbul on our first trip to Turkey

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are great. Also each floor had a Sultan Suite room which is very large

My family and I stayed for 5 nights in June/July. The staff were wonderful and helpful in every way. The location is excellent and breakfast was something to look for each morning, especially the rose jam. The view of the sea during breakfast was an added bonus. Slow internet though, Umit said they were looking into it.

My 8 year old daughter and I experienced a delightful stay for a week at the Dersaadet Hotel. Located in the heart of historic Istanbul, the hotel is within 2 blocks of the Blue Mosque, bazaars, neighbourhood restaurants, and public transportation. The staff went out of there way to meet our needs and their recommendations never disappointed. A perfect way to see this glorious city!

We stayed here for 3 nights in June - our first trip to Istanbul. Everything about our visit exceeded our expectations. As everyone else states, the hotel personnel couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We were served apple tea and Turkish delight when we arrived and our luggage was taken to our room. The front desk knew our names from the first day and greeted us whenever we left the hotel and when we came back. The cleaning staff was super and very friendly, as well as the staff at the breakfast buffet.

The location couldn't be beat - you're about 3 blocks walk from the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia is just beyond that. There is a tram that is past the Blue Mosque that is cheap and easy to use - it takes you all over the city.

We stayed in the Sultan's Penthouse and it was fantastic. I'd definitley recommend this hotel.

From the moment we were greeted with apple tea to our departure, we found this hotel in the Sultan Ahmet area to be delightful. Service was excellent, location was very convenient to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, and we loved the roof terrace. Rooms are small but then we weren't in them much.
