Before I start, just a few words about Istanbul. If you have any doubts, worries or concerns about going here, ignore them all. It's an amazing safe, clean vibrant city that everyone should visit at least once!!
The Dersaadet is a small 17 room hotel 20 minutes transfer from Atataurk Airport. It is a superb hotel! The staff are so friendly and helpful. It is spotless. The breakfast is fresh and plentiful. The rooms are individually decorated and very comfortable but the best feature is the rooftop terrace with panoramic views over the Bosphorous that will blow you away. Every evening was spent with a beer in hand watching the water ballet going on in front of our eyes!
We used the hotel transfer to and from the Airport, which was flawless and only slightly more expensive than a regular taxi (but much more comfortable) and the hotel stored our luggage free of charge on our last day, allowing us to explore the city still further before the journey home.
The location is tucked away down a side street just round the corner from the Blue Mosque and plenty of restaurants and shops are all within 5 minutes walk.
This is my 30th review (approx.) and only my second 5 star rating........awesome.
As Mary herself would say....."Practically perfect in every way"
