“A fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Excellent location, friendly staff, lovely hotel and a great view from the roof terrace.The hotel is down a quiet street, away from the hustle, bustle and hassle of many of the tourist streets n Sultanahmet - but it only takes a few minutes to walk to the Blue Mosque. Nothing is too much trouble for the helpful staff. I'd definitely recommend this hotel as we had a fantastic stay here.

Staying at Dersaadet make the hotel part of the experience of the city. It's a traditional home full of traditional furniture, but very clean and comfortable. The location couldn't be better : just a few minutes walk from the Hippodrome and the Blue Mosque.

All the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

I can only echo the positive reviews previously left on TA. We have spent 6 nights at the Dersaadet, and found it a wonderful home for our visit to Istanbul. The service is lovely: from the welcoming tea and the snacks always available in the cozy lobby, to the check-in by the charming Busra every morning at breakfast to see if we had any needs or questions, all of the staff including the maids always are smiling and helpful. The decor is "old school" genteel and slightly faded, but very clean & comfortable. Breakfast has many options, including freshly squeezed juice for a small additional price (so worth it!). The 3rd floor terrace overlooking the water remains open until 11 pm & is a great place for a glass of wine or tea. The free wifi works up there too!
The location of the Dersaadet is perfect: a few minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, the tram stop, etc. We have loved the proximity of the tram which makes it very easy to navigate most of Istanbul.
I highly recommend the Dersaadet! It is very reasonably priced, too, and offers a discount as well for cash payment.

Dersaadet Hotel is the ideal place for exploring ancient Istanbul. It is located just a view steps to the most famous sights like Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Ancient Cistern... We enjoyed the hotel with its nice decoration, especially the bathroom with private hammam, the roof terrace with its stunning view and delicious breakfast very much. We also liked the extraordinary welcoming and friendly staff with its most helpful tips and information. We can highly recommend Dersaadet Hotel Istanbul.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room with traditionally decorated private hammam very much.

Dersaadet is a delight in every respect and much more than just a place to stay. It has all the
hallmarks of the best B&B's we have stayed in many times in our travels. Replete with antiques, the hotel is beautiful and charming. Even as I concluded each day in our room after a day full of the sites and sounds of Istanbul, I felt I was in the Ottoman world of times past with the room's wallpaper, antique furniture and fixtures, and even the beautifully painted Ottoman style ceiling. This was definitely no cookie-cutter chain hotel.

The location is ideal. We were within in a five to ten minute walk of nearly all of the greatest sites and museums the old city of Istanbul has to offer: Aya Sofia, The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the great archaeological museum, and much more. In the eight days we were in this wonderful city, we only needed to use transportation twice.

The physical charms of Dersaadet and the terrific location, however, were exceeded by the owner and staff of the hotel. They were without exception warm, friendly, solicitous, and professional. We have never found this in another hotel and only rarely in the many B&B's we have stayed in. When we left with hugs and even some tears, we felt we were leaving friends!!!

Room Tip: Choose the double or deluxe rooms.

Everything was just perfect and we felt at home from the firs moment, eveyone was nice, kind and helpful and we enjoyed the well restored traditional place just in the heart of ancient Byzanz, ideally located to explore the remains of Constantinopel and ancient Istanbul. Since this was our first trip to Istanbul we really are looking forward to come again.

It was our first stay at Hotel Dersaadet but I am sure not our last one. We felt immediately at home. The staff was welcoming, the breakfast on the the roof terrace delicious and stunning with views across the Bosporus.
I can highly recommend the Hotel Dersaadet.
