We stayed at this hotel upon arrival in Istanbul, and again before we departed Turkey. The location of the hotel really cannot be beat. Its close enough to the action to be a short walk away, yet far enough away to be quiet at night. The view from the roof deck is amazing. The staff was kind - particularly on our return stay. When we arrived in Turkey we were given a very small interior room, and a view to a small interior patio and virtually no nature light. Our bags barely fit, but the bathroom was quite nice. We were happy to not spend any time at all in the room. When we came back through, we were given a room twice the size with a gorgeous view of the habor. It nearly seemed like a different hotel. Truth be told, when in Istanbul one doesn't spend much time in the hotel - so the location is key whether you get the exterior or the interior room - but try for the exterior room if you can!

Room Tip: Definitely get an exterior room.

Well located for easy access to all the features of Old Istanbul we stayed there for five or six nights over two separate occasions.
Welcoming staff were very friendly and helpful. Dining room staff less-so. The younger "assistant" gave the impression of being on a much-resented work-experience assignment.
The view from the roof-bar is excellent. Trying to get served up there proved somewhat of a chore. It looked like they served meals but trying to gain anyone's attention proved fruitless save for a beer and a wine.
The two rooms we had on each occasion had leaking shower-over-baths. Extra towels being needed each day to staunch the flow from below.
The "air-conditioner" could be more correctly called a fan.
Breakfasts were limited but very satisfactory. The WiFi worked in the rooms as well as the foyer/breakfast area. A plus after experiencing hotels in the rest of Turkey.
Once you get over the feeling of being in a Louis XIV drawing room, which is the foyer area, the place is quite comfortable.
Access to/from the airport is reasonably direct, by taxi at least.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in late June 2014. The staff were very helpful, the room well furnished with a great view of the Bosphorous. The roof top terrace/bar has amazing views. Breakfast was a continental self service. This hotel is perfectly placed for quick access to the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace all within 5 minutes stroll. This hotel is a great find. I recommend trying to get the Deluxe rooms with the Bosphorous views.

Stayed at Daphne for 3 nights during my stop in Istanbul. Some rooms in the hotel have a fantastic view of the sea , and all beds are really comfortable and its easy to go to sleep! However, not all of the staff speak english properly and some of them are quite short-tempered , so communication is not always easy

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the sea.

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 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.
