Historical Traveler Reviews Dersaadet Hotel Istanbul
We spent 5 nights at the Dersaadet Hotel in Sultanahmet. This is a wonderful find. Only 17 rooms but each one is extremely clean and attractive. The breakfast is served on the delightful roof with its clear view of the Asian side and the Sea of Marmara.
My wife and I recently visited the Dersaadet Hotel, Instanbul, a present from our son, and what a present, an absolute delight of a hotel.
Good Istanbul Hotel
My family stayed recently at the Dersaadet Hotel in Istanbul (March 2005). It's in a great location, about a five minute walk from the Blue Mosque and less than ten minute walk to many shops and public transport. The hotel itself is small, but the rooms we had were spotlessly clean and had some charming features. This is not a luxury hotel, but was exceptionally good value and the hotel staff were wonderfully helpful and courteous at all times. I would certainly recommend staying here if you want to be near some of the main sights. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and taxis are very cheap if you want to go further afield.
What a treat this was. My wife, mother-in-law and I spent a week at this charming oasis, located right in the heart of the Sultanahmet sites.
A fantastic hotel - worth more than one visit!
I stayed at the Dersaadet Hotel in February 2005 and had a fantastic time! The hotel is very new, nicely decorated, very clean, and the people were absolutely wonderful. It is a small boutique hotel where you easily feel at home. The rooms are cozy and tastefully decorated. Some have a view over the Bosporus. You can enjoy your breakfast in the restaurant on the top floor with an amazing view over the Bosporus and the Blue Mosque. The location is ideal; near all the main attractions in the old city. It is a short walk to e.g. the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar. But besides all this, the people are very friendly and helpful. The owner Deniz is always ready to help you. I enjoyed my stay so much that I am even returning to the Dersaadet in April!
I stayed at the Dersaadet in early December, 2004, and loved it. When they say they are a short walk to major sites (Blue Mosque, Haggia Sophia and more) they are completely accurate with no exaggeration. As important, the hotel staff was most friendly and HELPFUL in giving the wonderul advice that only natives would know. Have them help you with taxis as that was one problem I had during my stay but if the driver knows they are "being watched" by locals (ie, the hotel staff) hopefully there would be no troubles. For non-smokers (especially those for whom smoke is a significant problem, beware it seems like everyone smokes. But again, I completely recommend the Dersaadet!!!
Excellent Location, Good Value
Pleasant little hotel in Sultanahmet, short walk from Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. Very friendly staff, nice rooms not fancy, good value for monez at 50 euros for a double.
This hotel was charming! Everything you see on their website is there - from the gorgeous view of the Marmara Sea to the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque, Hippodrome and Aya Sofia were right around the corner from the hotel, a 3-5 minute walk. It was very easy to get around Turkey, especially with the helpful staff. They offered to make reservations for tours, arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport to take us the hotel and back, and even made dinner reservations for us - with a driver to take and pick us up.
A great hotel at a very nice price. The owner and staff work hard to help you in every way they can. The rooms are very noble and well kept and the historic restoration of the entire hotel is top caliper. The roof patio is lovely for breakfast and early evening wine. Location is nice as it is off the beaten path just enough to make it feel like a real neighborhood and not a tourist mess as on the other side of the blue mosque. It is a nice, short walk to all major attractions and the area holds a few surprises such as the Mosaic museum which is wonderful. Highly recommended.
