“Wonderful hotel, near the heart of action but not quite”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

Great hotel, central in Sultanahmet, just 3 mins walk to Blue Mosque etc...great sized rooms too. We stayed here for just one night and regret that we stayed at another hotel when we were here last. And most importantly, fantastic view of the sea...don't miss having dinner on the terrace- its gorgeous. Total Paisa Vasool as they say in Hindi:))

Stayed June 2014, traveled with family

Stayed at the Daphne for two nights in June. The hotel is in a quiet part of Sultanahmet, but very close to the action. The room was quite large and very comfortable. Not a big deal, but the hotel staff did seem rather indifferent toward the guests; ranging from at best slightly bored, to at worst slightly annoyed.

The story is like this. I went to that hotel 3 times in total (all for business). My first time I booked the room through web. When I went there the owner told me that she gonna give me better price next time if I gonna call her directly and not through web sites. Indeed, second booking January 2014 called her and asked her for a room. I must say that she gave me a very good price and a very good room. So when I get back I wrote excellant comments about the hospitality and the kindness of the staff. And now it's the time for my next trip. So I sent her a e mail in order to book a room again (prices suppose to be the same). I've got an answer e mail in which they told me that the price will be more than the double from the last time. As you undestand I became angry. I told her from the first time that I am bussineswoman and I will make trips several times a year. I didn't ask for a better price she gave it to me. And suddenly told me that the price is different because of summer season? She did'nt give me a really low price because of winter season. Of course I cancel my booking and just for me I check the web site of the first time. They have offers again. They lost their regular customers and now make offers in order to book a room.
If you didn't take care of your customers these are the results.

This hotel is in the quiet part of Sultanahmet. The prices of the menu are in euros and really expensive for the city. Also we rented a room with sea view and got a room near the noisy street, never agree with that because they say they are full. It is the touristic Turkey way of ripping you off. The view of the rooftop terrace is great, try to get your breakfast there!

Room Tip: To rooms with sea view are bigger and not near the noisy street with taxies.

The Hotel is in a quite location considering the amount of activity in this area. The Rooms were clean and neat. Close to all important locations withion walkable distance. Breakfast can be improved as there is little choice. Lot of eating places nearby.

Daphne Hotel is situated in a very quiet part, next to the Blue Mosque, combining easy access to the centre, and to other important touristic points of the city, while you will enjoy a nice and quiet sleep during the night, and a great wakening in the morning! The stuff was very polite and helping! Breakfast was nice, and without a doubt, on my next trip to Istanbul, i will try to book once again in Daphne hotel!
