“Small welcoming hotel”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

This was our first trip to Istanbul having visited other parts of Turkey on numerous occasions. We decided to book a small hotel, hoping that less would be more, we were not disappointed. Everybody at the hotel was friendly and welcoming. Our room, although small, was clean and comfortable and the free WIFI was a bonus. We were also pleased with the location of the hotel, in a quieter area of town, all the main sights within walking distance.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

An extremely friendly hotel, the staff could not do more to help us enjoy our stay in Istanbul. The hotel was clean, warm and comfortable. Ideally placed for exploring, with good value cafés nearby. An excellent breakfast and when we left early in the morning, before breakfast time we were given a cup of coffee and snacks in the reception whilst we waited for our transfer.
Thank you to the staff at the Diva's Hotel.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our sea view room

On check in we upgraded for a small fee to Sea view room and we could not be happier with our room.
It is on a small side but the view was amazing. Breakfast was plentiful with good selection of cheeses and other items.
On check out we were helped by Mehmet and Fuat (I hope I spelled the names correctly) who were friendly.

The only thing I would recommend is ear plugs and we could hear the people in the next room. It might be that I am light sleeper but ear plugs would definitely help.

We would not hesitate to stay at Diva's hotel again as the location in one of the best.

There are lots of little hotels in Istanbul, but this little one that's tucked away in a neighborhood behind the Blue Mosque is a hidden jewel. The name reflects the whimsically glamorous room décor with lots of little touches of bling in the light fixtures, bedding, mirrors and even shower tiles. Someone had a lot of fun concepting Diva's and it shows.

The breakfast buffet is impressive in how comprehensive it is--everything you'd expect from a traditional Turkish breakfast of bread, boiled eggs, cheese, beef sausage and olives--and then some, with plenty of cereals, jogurt, pastries, fresh fruit and even hot items like scrambled egg and French toast. There's literally something for everyone.

On top of all that, the utmost professionalism of the staff have to be mentioned here- They were there at every turn no matter what we needed.

No question I would stay here again. The location is fantastic (right in the heart of Sultanahmet, but off the beaten path just enough to be quiet and peaceful for a good night's sleep.
