“Great Staff, Amazing Location, Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We recently stayed at this hotel and everyone loved it. First off, the staff is super friendly and very helpful. They gave us some of the best recommendations for meals and what to see. The hotel itself is absolutely charming. It has that boutique hotel charm, while still in the middle of historic Istanbul. When there, you feel like you get a lot of personal attention which is great. The breakfasts were to die for (Sitting on the beautiful rooftop terrace was also nice -- it had great views of the Marmara Sea and the Blue Mosque). The rooms were large and well equipped. I had the ocean view room which was delightful. My room was very well cleaned and the bedding and etc was very high quality. But I think the main benefit of this hotel is the location. It's located right in the middle of historic Istanbul. Everything one wants to see is a short walk away (ie the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace) Also note, there is a great bazaar near the hotel, where you can get the best deals. We really enjoyed our trip and definitely recommend this hotel. Choose this hotel over others like the Pera or the Four Seasons because you get the same service/attention, and the same amazing rooms. This hotel is just superior.

Have just returned from a 4 day break in Istanbul. This hotel was just perfect. It was lovely and warm and very cosy during a very cold and damp spell. After a very substantial breakfast on the roof terrace, overlooking the Bospherous, it was very easy to step out and be in the centre of things. It was only a few minutes walk to the main square and the Blue Mosque, with the tram there if it was needed. The hotel was spotlessly clean and every member of staff was friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much for them. I can't think there would be a better place to stay in Istanbul

Have just returned from a snowy trip to Istanbul where we stayed at the Dersaadet. It is a specail hotel, an Ottoman house lovingly converted with real attention to detail. Clean, warm room (we had a sea view). Breakfast is served in the rooftop terrace with views of the Bosphorus and Blue Mosque. A relaxing room with soft jazz playing. There is a good selection of Turkish foods for breakfast and good coffee(the apple tea is also good). The terrace is also open as a cafe during the day.

Best of all though are the wonderful, friendly staff, unfailingly polite, nothing is too much trouble from finding where to have my zip repaired to colluding with my daughter for a surprise birthday party, complete with cake, balloons and streamers - wonderful! One of the best hotels I have stayed in.

We stayed at Dersaadet Hotel for 4 nights and it was wonderful. THey picked us up from the airport and helped us with the room before the check in time- the staff was great and really concerned to make sure our stay at the hotel was fantastic. Will definitely stay there if we go back to istanbul

I stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago - great central location near the Blue Mosque, really clean and a great atmosphere and ambience. But the best part was the service. I hurt by back on the way to Istanbul and the team could not have been more accommodating and helpful. From the Front desk staff to the breakfast team to the cleaners nothing was too much effort. I had trouble accessing the shower in my room so they found another one for me use, I had trouble walking up the stairs to the beautiful rooftop breakfast area one day so they brought me a tray to my room and they helped carry my bag to and from my room. Thank you to the team at Hotel Dersaadet I will be returning to stay with you again and would suggests others do also!

Room Tip: Many of the rooms have small views to the water!

We stayed at the Dersaadet in January 2012 and were amazed at how clean, comfortable and inviting it was. It is just a street away from the blue mosque which you can see from the roof top terrace. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the bedroom was wonderfully furnished. Breakfast included a great range of cereals, dried fruit and yoghurt as well meats, olives, cheese and cakes! We fully recommend staying at this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner room so had windows looking out on two sides and probably larger. Quiet neighb...

My husband and I stayed at the Dersaadet Hotel for the second time, having stayed there six years ago on our first trip to Istanbul. We were every bit as happy with our second stay as our first. Our daughter and her husband arrived a day before us and had made arrangements to stay at the Dersaadet based on our recommendation. They too said that they couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The location is great because it is within walking distance of major sights and restaurants in the old town. The service is outstanding and the staff went out of their way to be helpful to all of us. The breakfast buffet is wonderful with a terrific view from the rooftop terrace. For us, the Dersaadet is the only place to stay in Istanbul. Joyce W
