“A wonderful place to stay in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

I've checked the latest reviews and agree with all of it. With this quality of service, staff, and the confort and equipment available, it's actually surprising that Palazzo Donizetti isn't ranked yet amongst the 200 best hotels in Istanbul, according to me it should be in the top ten!
Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time there, the room was superb, the spa facilities were fantastic, the staff was always friendly, smiling and helpful, which is not always the case in Istanbul. Hopefully I'll have the chance to come back soon!

I have stayed in Palazzo Donizetti several times. During summer, autumn, because I love Istanbul in every season...

The hotel is very comfortable, clean, well equipped. Ideally located - you can walk not only in the Taksim area, Istiklal Cad, but if you are fond of walking you can go even to Sultanahmet and see the main tourist attraction.

Probably the most attractive feature of this hotel are the always courtious, pleasant staff.
And do not forget to visit hammam - a real treat for body and soul.

Thank you, Palazzo Donizetti Istanbul!!!

Room Tip: If you are claustrophobic - do not choose economy rooms, their windows face other walls of back yard...

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. The hotel is first class! We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel. The services provided were excellent. The restaurant was on the top floor with a spectacular view of Istanbul. We felt very comfortable and safe in this hotel. The location couldn't have been better. It was close to shopping, night life and the views were outstanding. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. We changed rooms and they took care of everything. Our luggage had been misplaced for 7 weeks and the hotel gladly took them back and kept the luggage safe until they could be returned to us. Seda Kucukbenli, Guest Relations helped us greatly and put us at ease. We would stay here again and also highly recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Request the corner suite rooms....it is well worth it!

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 had our vacation in November 2013 in Istanbul and we stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. Excellent is the less we could say! Perfect hotel in everything! I suggest to all Istanbul visitors! We must thank all people of Palazzo Donizetti as they offered us the pleasure of relaxing and never be bored to answer our questions or do the best for us! Special thanks to Seda who was like our guide. She paint for us a map of the town and she explained all about museums hours, transport, etc. She was always smiling and happy to asnwer our questions!

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...
