1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Low quality place, not worth for money. Unpleasant people to "welcome" you. Small rooms, not very clean, ugly bathroom.
Very noisy place. There is a building site just nearby and people theire work all day and late at night : impossible to sleep. we asked to change our room and they didn't care and didn't even propose any compensation.

There is a very nice view on the top roof but the restaurant ventilation is noisy and stinks (fried fish).

There are other hotel around, with the same amazing view : look for them and avoid this crapy place

Room Tip: if yoiu really want to go to this hotel, choose for room with views

3 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and all of the wonderful museums.
Nearby is the modern tram which will take you to the ferries in a few minutes.
Fantastic roof restaurant with great night views over the city and serving excellent food.
Very friendly and helpfull staff.
An impressive foyer/reception area but bedroom is probably due a refurb

I visited Istanbul in early May and I can say, without any mistake it was a unique experience. We managed to achieve all the goals that we have set (Top Kapi, Dolmabahce, Agia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Bosphorus, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar, Istiklal Street shopping area). For this we needed three full days, with patience and determination.
High importance was Lady Diana hotel accommodation, superbly located next to the Blue Mosque, very clean, very friendly staff, rooms a little small, but that does not really matter when your goal is to visit not to stay in a room. Do not miss the breakfast on the terrace of the hotel where you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Blue Mosque and Saint Sophia Cathedral. Beware of offers from hotel to cruise on the Bosphorus, they are very expensive (around 30-35 euros). Better negotiate directly, you will find in touristic areas - for example in front of Saint Sophia- many companies that make these cruises (we negotiated the price of 30 turkish lira, but I understood that you can negotiate up to 10 TL).

Pleasent 4 star hotel with 3 star standard but place needs renovation. Very good location and probably the best roof-top restaurant view in Istanbul. The food is ok and fairly priced. I wouldn't stay here again but I'd make the detour for a drink or a bite to eat as the sun is setting or later....

We were at this hotel for a total of 6 nights and 7 days. The location of the hotel was found to be very good as this is at a mere 5-10 mins walking distabnce from all the major tourist attactions like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, and the Topkopi palace.

For the hotel itself, I feel it is a bit overcharged for the services it offers. Cleanliness wise found to be satisfactory, but fails at the small things that help the traveller. For instance, the hotel does not provide with drinking water bottels that are usually complimentary with other 4-5 star properties.

Rooms are tiny, and bathrooms are even smaller. Travelling adaptors (european configration) are available at the reception but they charge a hefty amount (approx 10TL)

Other wise the hotel was found to be good.

This hotel is an ideal place. 5 minutes from Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, Bascilla Cistern as well as the tram stop. The roof top terrace is a wonderful view of Blue Mosque.
The breakfasts were adequate and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a
little on the small side but we only used it to sleep in, spent the days exploring Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Blue Mosque otherwise you will be allocated a street room, not much to see.
