“EXCELLENT HOTEL”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

We spent our first 3 nights at Palazzo Donizetti and our stay was pleasant & comfortable.
The room was very clean and comfortable.The restaurant situated on top floor serves an healthy delicious buffet breakfast & has excellent views of Istanbul.
The hotel has a spacious design. All amenities such as spa/swimming pool/sauna's/massages are excellent & well organized and run by very competent staff.
The hotel staff are very helpful at all times and went out of there way to ensure our stay was excellent.
Thank you to Ms.Seda guest relations who is answered all our queries and also advised us on getting around as well as sites of interest. She always enquired on our stay and if we had any questions.The hotel located in a very vibrant area with lots of activities /areas of interest within walking distance and easily accessible public transport such as trams & Sishane metro station. For sure we will use this hotel in future and we highly recommend it to visitors to Istanbul. This hotel will enhance your trip and Beyoglu is a prime tourist location.
Thank you to all Staff of Palazzo Donizetti.

We visited Istanbul the first days of November 2013 and we were very lucky that EVERYTHING was gone excellent during our stay. Not a bad memory at all! But it is very important for us to thank all the stuff of Palazzo Donizetti Hotel and special Seda who served at their best way. They were always happy to answer our questions, to let us know where and how to go to visit the special places, to do everything they could do to make us feel happy. All areas of the hotel and also rooms were the cleanest I had seen during my trips around. We felt like a king and a queen there! Breakfast was rich enough for us. Hotel was based in Beyoglu and very near to interesting places! We suggest to everyone who wants to visit to Istanbul and wants really enjoy his staying...Don't try something else except this Palazzo...Palace!

Room Tip: I don't think that you will have any problem during your staying. Maybe a note...Weekends are li...

Do not think twice before you book, you found the perfect place!!!
Perfectly located on the top side of the vivid Istiklal Street, a walking distance from Taksim square and easy access to all tourist attractions from nearby public transportation station.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, very romantic, clean and well maintained. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, modern&classic, with comfortable big beds. The view from the dinning room is amazing and the spa is great.
Above all is the SERVICE, I never had such a great srevice experience, the staff were very generous, warm and friendly people. We got engaged there and they helped me with the proposal, they were happy to assist with any question, gave us a lot of great tips on where to go and how to get to places in Istanbul.
I really recommend the place- SERVICE, LOCATION AND CONVINIENCE.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Guest satisfaction is our number one goal and there is nothing better than achieving that! We are happy our hotel,service and staff met all your needs during your stay!
Our location is second to none! We are just close enough to Istiklal Avenue and many Istanbul attractions like Taksim Square, Pera, Galata Tower,Tunnel Area etc...
It also offers easy access to old part of to city ( Sultanahmet Area ) by a short tram ride and a few steps away Sishane Metro.
In addition, thank you for making us a part of your special day.Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness.

We do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back again soon.

I debated many different hotels and Air BnB options before traveling to Istanbul, but ultimately my friend and I decided on the Palazzo Donizetti. The hotel is an easy taxi ride away from all the sites, and we were warmly welcomed by the staff.

The major benefits of this hotel are the breakfast (has everything you could ask for included FREE in your stay) and a free spa located beneath the hotel itself. The rooms are very clean and modern by European standards.

What we appreciated most was the walking proximity to İstiklal Avenue, where we spent our evening having dinners, partying, and getting home quickly and safely.

Room Tip: 4th floor or above are probably best!

It was very nice in Istanbul, we were in hotel for five days. We were really satisfied. Room was comfortable and clean. It was a little hot, because is a central system for heating/cooling, but if you sleep without pyjamas, it's ok. People who work there were gentle and complaisant. The food was very good. The location is a excellent. We will recomand hotel to our friends.
