It was impossible to be at the other side of Istanbul on time due to traffic ..We enjoyed the beautiful Bahariye district ,it was already late to go home and needed to come back early in the morning to pick up some items that we ordered . We usually stay at doubletree by Hilton at Moda if we need to stay at the asian side of Istanbul,but they were full due to ..Me and my husband came across with this small hotel and really you can not imagine how nice it could be an old building turn to a hotel..It was totally non smoking but the team has arranged a nice terrace for smokers half open ,half closed with complimentary tea,coffee station nice wooden furniture ..the best part was to watch the bosphorus and be amazed with the well litted old Haydarpasa gar view....Rooms were very clean ,well arranged and bathroom had a great rain shower with massage fixtures..Probably we'll be there again to continue shopping till the late evenings in Bahariye...Thanks to my Dora hotel team.

Lovely hotel in a great location on the Asian side - away from the rip-off tourist areas but close enough and only 5 minutes to get to the ferry across to the key sights on the European side. Travel is cheap too (2tl for ferry, tram & train any distance). Hotel is very clean, comfortable & quiet. Good selection in the buffet breakfast; staff very friendly & helpful. Lots of bars, good inexpensive places to eat & variety of shops etc all close to the hotel. It cost us only 6tl each to get from Ataturk Airport to the hotel with no hassle (by metro, tram & ferry) and was a pleasant journey. Also saw a Havas shuttle going to Sabiha Gokcen airport across the road. Would rather stay in a hotel on this side for sightseeing, than the European side and this hotel was excellent. Highly recommended!

I was passing through Istanbul on my way elsewhere and decided to stop for an extended (2 day) layover. A week before my arrival, I attempted to book some of the cheaper and more popular places in Sultanahmet, but was unsuccessful. My Dora is on the Asian side of the Bosporus, and so I didn't have any difficulty making a last-minute reservation.

I would have preferred to be walking distance to the old city, but it turned out very well at My Dora. It's walking distance (~2 minutes) to the ferry, which is super cheap (2 TKL) and easy, and provides nice bookends to a day of walking around the sights on the European side.

The rooms were very comfortable and clean, no complaints at all. Breakfast was simple but filling with plenty of vegetables, olives, cheeses, bread, and tea/coffee.

I highly recommend My Dora Hotel, but if you have to take a taxi from Ataturk Int'l Airport, add another $40 USD to your costs (more if you land one of the unscrupulous ones, as I did).

We have stayed in a couple of different locations in Istanbul on previous trip and booked 4 nights at this hotel with the intention of moving to a different location for another 4 nights. We ended up staying here for 8 nights. After 7 months of mostly back packing and basic hotels we treated ourselves to a suite here; very comfortable and very clean. Location was excellent, we loved Kadikoy and will definitely stay here again. Ferries are frequent - every 20 minutes - to European side of Istanbul, easy to get ferry to Princes Islands. Staff very welcoming and efficient.

The hotel is well-designed, clean and has a great staff. Though it's a small one, has all you would expect from a city hotel, and even more... I strongly reccomend you this hotel!
