We stayed at the Darkhill hotel in December for 3 nights. The reception staff was very helpful with directions and also calling and reserving for us places where we wanted to go. They are conveniently located right at the Laleli tram station, just 2 stations away from sultanahmet. The ride was short and also walked to and from sultanahmet several times. They also have 2 no commission currency exchange right outside which are handy as airport one charges 4% commission.
Their restaurant has a great view and the breakfast buffet had a nice variety of turkish fruits, eggs, salads, bread, juices and tea, coffee. They also have omelette and fried eggs for extra charge. The restaurant staff was kind enough to understand our dietary restrictions (vegetarian) and let us use their microwave in the kitchen.
The wifi was a little slow in the room but worked great in the lobby area. The rooms had a nice view of Istanbul, beds were comfortable and bathroom had a nice rain shower. Very clean hotel, but minor noise from ongoing construction. Lift is a little slow, but easily manageable. Didnt try their Hamam/Spa. services.

Room Tip: Choose 5th or 6th floor as its just 1 floor from restaurant, good view and no wait for slow elevator. Do not buy their map which is 5 USD/Euro as a free one is available at Sultanahment tourist center.

I stay at that that hotel because it was in the center of the city and also because it was close to the T1 tram line. Just 50 meters. The location of the hotel is really and very safe. All the staff of the hotel was really gentle and helpful. I don't have any complain at all. The breakfast was excellent in the roof of the hotel with great view at the sea. The room was clean and all the rest was fine. I suggest it to everyone who want to travel there but keep in mind that for going to expo center at the airport you have to take one tram and one metro line. So the apprx. Time is around 35 minutes. The positive is that you are in the center and you can go for a walk at night

Remodeled roof top restaurant was a hit with our group. Food was good. It was convenient to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Bazaar, banks, airport, etc. Bathrooms are very nice with large showers and lots of sparkling tile.

Perfect for the tourist with it's convenient and safe location. Friendly and helpful staff. The roof top restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. Good food and excellent views of Istanbul. Rooms were ok, with remodeled/updated bath. Hotel was quiet. we were part of a 48 member tour group and overall I heard good comments from my fellow travelers about the Darkhill Hotel.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel while we were on a Gate I tour of Turkey. The location of this hotel was fabulous. Walking distance to the Grand Bazar and one block away from the hotel to the tram which takes you to all the must see sights. The hotel staff was so attentive and helpful. We arrived 2 days before our tour started without our luggage. It was early in the morning and they got us into a room right away. The hotel made numerous calls and we retrieved our luggage. The rooms were spacious enough for my husband and myself and the food was delicious. I especially liked the pool and spa with the Turkish bath and sauna at no charge. (massage extra) The location is excellent.
