Stayed here for four nights in mid August in a double room. The hotel itself is quaint, looks to be a refurbished older residence.
The hotel staff were warm and welcoming, quickly arranging a private transfer from the airport and sitting with us on arrival (with tea) to orient us with a map and answer questions about the city.
The room was reasonably small however well furnished with inviting decor typical of turkey. The beds were wonderfully soft, a good nights sleep guaranteed! Air con was great (and necessary in the heat).
Breakfast was served on roof terrace overlooking the harbour. Selection was small but nice.
Yusuf and other staff are very client oriented and quickly organised tours, private guides and answered any other queries. Customer service here is fabulous.
Location is spot on, five minute walk to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, as well as the Sultanahmet tram which transports you to other parts of the city. If you are interested in seeing the main sights (aforementioned and others), this is a great base.
One thing to note is that proximity to mosque means call to prayer is fairly loud in the evening and early morning, though it didn't bother us.
Thanks to the staff at Hotel Darussade for welcoming us to Istanbul and helping make the stay smooth and enjoyable
