“Perfect location, wonderful staff, fab breakfast, perfect all round!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Everyone is eager to make your stay at the Dosso Dossi a perfect experience. We had a wonderful time, made more so by the extra-friendly and helpful staff and extra treats (chocolates on the pillow, welcoming drink, violinist entertaining us while we breakfasted like a king). But the real drawcard is the location --- down the hill to the park and Topkapi Palace, up the hill to the Grand Bazaar, around the corner to the Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and an exciting shopping precinct. Also around the corner we found a plethora of fun restaurants and drink spots. Our king-sized bed was fantastic and the room big enough for us to spread out. Internet connection was quick and easy. The multi-cultural breakfast had something for everyone, all fresh, colourful and delicious. Best ever. There was even a table with a special offering for children. Perfect.

Room Tip: Go for a room towards the rear of the hotel, either the 4th or 5th floor ---- both have access to a...

I booked tnis hotel 6 months ago and it looked nice enough but when we arrived we found it had been closed for a while in the Spring and refurbished to a standard far exceeding our expectations. It was spotless, modern and the staff were very welcoming. The room was more like a suite and was very luxurious. The price we paid of €94 was very good value. The dining area looked nice but unfortunately we didn't get our breakfast as we were leaving so early. Highly recommended and we would go back there if we visit Istanbul again as the location is also ideal for sightseeing in the Old Town and you are at the right side of the city for getting to the airport. We didn't have time to use the spa area but it also looked very nice

I stayed there for 3 nights however made use of almost all services; unbeatable breakfast buffet and very inspiring 2 terraces, though the coffee break at 5 pm was not as perfect as other services.
Can never neglect the very cheerful welcoming from the staff there with the extremely delicious Turkish delight. As the many thanks extend to all staff, special and grateful thanks to Mrs. Kadr Goner SAHIN for being extremely helpful in directing us to the superb areas of Turkey; far from sightseeing in Sultan Ahmet to restaurants and even extending to our ferry reservation to Bursa.
Sure Dosso Dossi will be my target next visit to Istanbul.

The staff is the best value for this hotel. They were always ready to support for any request. I really enjoyed staying in Istanbul. The location was fantastic. In five minutes we ware in the heart of Istanbul, just 5 mins walk to Aya Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Sultan Ahmet Mosque and famous hammams. Ten mins to Topkapi Palace, Archaeology Museum and Grand Bazaar.

Short walk to all the Old City attractions. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast very good and staff always ready to help. The violinist in the lobby gave a pleasant feeling to the hotel. I would be happy to stay there again. I booked through Chora Travel in Istanbul who I have used before and always got good service and value.

Although I have looked forward to visiting Istanbul for a long time, as usual when you visit a country where you do not know the language, I had a few concerns about coping if the hotel was dodgy in any way.

I can recommend Dosso Dossi with no reservations. Perfect location for the Sultanahmet area with all the major attractions, literally within a leisurely walking distance. The road is quite busy as they all are in the Old City, but we didn't suffer from noise as we were at the back of the hotel.

We were in a regular economy room which was very good indeed. Very modern decoration, beds extremely comfortable with pristine bed linen and towels. All conveniences you would need are in the room. We only ate breakfast, which was varied and plentiful - don't hesitate to ask for eggs, they make them to order for you.

All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, really accommodating to all your needs. As a last hint, save time for a massage on your last day when you have exhausted yourself around all the stunning architecture and people watching around the square. The lady in the Spa has magical hands !!

Room Tip: Towards the back of the hotel to avoid traffic noise and floors 4 & 5 have a terrace

You cannot beat this hotel for location and cleanliness. Very modern with a Turkish feel,smack in the middle of the old town and just 5 mins walk to Aya Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Gulhane Park, Science and Technology Museum and famous hammams. Ten mins to Topkapi Palace, Archaeology Museum and Grand Bazaar. The rooms are very modern and clean and service for Istanbul is very good too. Breakfasts were delicious and I feel there was a lot of choice. There is also free afternoon tea from 3.30-5.00pm, a great touch.The spa was lovely, but a shame the steam rooms shut at 10pm, as it was early. Also lots of lovely restaurants very close by and a tram stop at the end of the road. I booked through Booking.com in the January sale and as a result it was good value for money, where Istanbul is super-expensive.
