“marvellous Turkish hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We first visited Dersaadet Hotel in 2007 and have returned five times since then. Each visit just gets better and better. It is a marvellous hotel at which you will receive really marvellous Turkish hospitality. The staff are absolutely superb and all give the impression that their main objective is to make sure that you have a really wonderful stay in Istanbul. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them. Each time that we return we feel that we are coming back to visit old friends.

The hotel is an Ottoman style building with tons of Turkish character. It has a variety of lovely, well-appointed and beautifully maintained rooms. The corner rooms are especially spacious. The terrace, where breakfast is served and where guests can have a quiet drink or just sit and relax has beautiful views over the Marmara Sea and the Blue Mosque. It is easy to spend hours there.

In addition, Dersaadet is wonderfully located.It is within a few minutes walk from most of the major tourist attractions of Old Istanbul. The Blue Mosque, the Aya Sofia, the Hippodrome, the Arasta Bazaar and the Basilica Cistern are among these nearby attractions, Furthermore, the Sultanahmet tram stop provides easy access (especially if you buy an Istanbul Card) to the main trams, ferries and buses that take you to other parts of the city.

If you are looking for a lovely hotel that provides excellent facilities, great location, superb staff and a really wonderful Turkish experience, this is it

We were really impressed with the hotel, location was perfect and with a stunning view of the Blue Mosque. We had two different rooms there, as we extended our stay, and both were really nice. One had a Sea of Marmara view and the other a turkish bath. Both were great, and I recommend trying the turkish bath, really nice after a long days sightseeing. The terrace is truly delightful and a perfect way to spend breakfast or for a drink. The staff were lovely, very helpful and always happy to help.

Room Tip: Room with turkish bath worth a try.

Really well situated - a few hundred metres from The Blue Mosque. The very efficent tram system and tour bus stops were also within easy walking distance. Rooms were spacious and well appointed and air conditioned! A delightful roof terrace for drinks and breakfast and hear the call to prayer from Istanbuls many mosques. The reception, housekeeping and terrace team were all incredibly helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Treat yourself to the Penthouse!

The hotel is very well located few minutes walk from most important sightseeing and old town. We book a suite and having a child it came out as a very confortable choice with relaxing space after full day city visit. Staff always very helpful, breakfast on the terrace with fantastic view and clean and confortable room. Pick up at airport available as service, close to all important place to visit so you don't need taxi (I suggest to use the tram for getting in the north part of the city). A good choice.

The Dersaadet Hotel is very intelligently run to meet the needs of tourist visitors -- they think through every aspect of your stay, from a very helpful and charming "assistant front desk manager" who essentially serves as an attentive concierge to the complimentary water and fruit (always available) to the breakfast buffet with all items labeled in english to the very well organized airport pick up and delivery service. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished in traditional Turkish style, and the bathrooms are new and spotless. The rooms are not large. Also it is not inexpensive. But we were very glad that we stayed there.

Room Tip: You essentially get what you pay for -- our family had two rooms and found the 3 person suite rooms...

We were a Mother (51!) and Daughter(20) trip to Istanbul – somewhat out of our comfort zone – but thanks to the Hotel staff and the Turkish people we loved every minute of our holiday and can’t wait to return. The Hotel is great. We stayed in a small room at the cheaper end of the hotel’s range, but it was very comfortable and everything worked. Do use transfers to and from the hotel. They were on time and made life so easy. Well worth paying for if you are on a package deal like us. The staff at the Hotel are excellent and really helpful. They advised us, for example, how to get to places, told us another hotel to ring from to arrange a return taxi on our travels so we felt safe with our taxi driver, suggested an’ easy’ restaurant on our first night whilst we got our bearings and so on. We felt able to ask for help and we were given it every time. The terrace on the top floor is a real bonus as you could spend hours watching boats on the sea from there and as we didn’t want to travel far in the evening this was brilliant. The nature of the Hotel means that other travellers are friendly and everyone shared ideas of what to do etc . What makes a good holiday? If you want a Hotel which will enable you to have a rich and varied time, this is the one. The essentials to having a brilliant stay in Istanbul are here in the incredible knowledge and willingness of the staff at this Hotel to ensure you enjoy exploring their city! They know their stuff inside out and are happy to share! I thoroughly recommend this Hotel!
