A great boutique hotel in the perfect location! Although situated in the very heart of the old city (in Sultanahmet), the hotel offers you all the peace and quiet you need after a long and exciting day in the lively city of Istanbul. Our room (nr. 16) was medium sized, nicely decorated with careful attention to all details. Beds and armchairs are very comfortable, the bathroom size is generous and everything is impeccably clean and new.
Breakfast is served on the roof top from where you can enjoy the great view of the Marmara Sea. Plenty of choice, very tasty food.
We had a wonderful week-end break and we would like to thank the staff of Delhyat Kalfa Hotel for contributing to make our stay so memorable.

i can only echo what everyone else says about this place. Friendly, helpful staff. Great position, we walked nearly everywhere, Ahmet lent us his travel card to get the tram for a trip on the Bosphorus. the room was quiet, and clean and nicely decorated in a traditional style with a good modern bathroom and lovely bathrobes supplied clean every day. Breakfast was on the roof with a good choice of continental style fare. We would go up there after a day in the city for a cuppa and a G&T (Our own duty free) on the comfy sofa with views over the water. There was no one there but we could help ourselves to tea and milk. A lovely 'non Hotel' Hotel, we were told - this is your home. A very pleasurable stay.

Room Tip: There are only 6 rooms in a quiet street, I don't think there would be a choice between them.

We stayed at Dilhayat Kalfa for five nights in Istanbul and enjoyed every single aspect. Staff are warm and welcoming, particularly Ahmet who took the time to help us with any travel queries, show us his favourite shisha bar and try to teach us some basic language where possible. An all-round lovely guy. Our room was very comfortable with great shower, AC and fresh bottled water daily. Breakfast on the top terrace was awesome every morning as well - great way to start the day looking out to sea.

A few people have commented that the morning prayer woke them up. It did for the first two days for us but it was actually quite an authentic experience hearing the prayer cries from the Blue Mosque as you lie in bed - really felt like Turkey. And we went straight back to sleep anyway.

One thing to be aware of which isn't the hotel's fault is that no taxi driver seems to know where it is. Sometimes even with a map! Suggest you orientate yourself before getting a taxi home from Beyoglu or Taksim as it may be challenging if neither you or the driver know where you are...

That said, it's in the heart of Sultanahmet and all the bars, cafes, cultural landmarks (Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, Grand Bazaar, Spice Market) are in easy walking distance.

Thoroughly recommend staying here for a relaxing and trouble-free time.

A wonderful stay!! We were treated so well by Hami and Ahmet who truly made my friend and I feel like this was our home in Istanbul. The hospitality was above and beyond. Hami and Ahmet were always available and incredibly helpful. Having breakfast on the roof terrace every morning only added to the charm of the hotel. I loved the area, felt very safe and loved our room (the large room on the third floor). The hotel is also incredibly clean and well maintained. I confess that I usually stay in larger hotels but found this experience so delightful that I think smaller, boutique hotels are in my future. I cannot say enough nice things about the staff. They are definitely part of what made my trip to Istanbul so memorable.

Room Tip: Not sure what the number is but the rooms on the third floor is the most spacious. Other rooms were...
