Location - 10 mins to Hagia Sofia and Sultanahmet mosque. Staff - Helpful, reassuring. Room - Clean, with full amenities
Location, Reception staffs, room. Reception staffs are really cordial.
Breakfast menu could be better. Room cleaner was not sincere. Didn't clean the floor. We did not like it at all. Otherwise everything was good.
It is a wonderful hotel, looking like a family buisiness, in a nice location just 5 minutes walk from Blue Mosque. All the staff is speaking english and is willing to help and give directions in every plan that you may have. Cleaning is scheduled every day. The breakfast is full and without limit. Every morning during the breakfast you can discuss with the guy in the reception and receive useful information about your plans. It is a really good example of tourist buisiness giving priority in customers satisfaction. Give special attention in the parking which is difficult in this area. The hotel offers a parking after request before the arrival. Everything was as described.
Everything about this hotel is first class. The location is perfect in a quiet area but only a 10 minute walk from Sultanhamet Square. I was in Istanbul for the marathon and it was ideally situated for getting to the start. My room was huge with a beautifully comfy bed and luxurious quilt, armchair and large well equiped bathroom with a wonderful shower. Everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent with hot/cold food and unlimited coffee and fruit juice. The staff are extremely friendly and make you feel so welcome. . I didn't want to leave and I am planning to go back again next year. Book this hotel-you won't regret it!
Perfect location within walking distance of all old town attractions. Quiet with comfortable clean rooms.Friendly helpful staff. Plentiful breakfast on roof terrace. Historical house with lots of interesting antiques.
Only negative was that the room was a bit small.
Location is very convenient: just 10 minutes walk from Aya Sofya and Blue Mosque and in the same time it`s a little bit out of the most crowded street. Good view to the sea and to Blue Moque from the terrace on the roof. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Breakfast might be better, but it`s OK.
Small boutique hotel which is very close to the main attractions. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lovely breakfast on the rooftop with wonderful views was an added bonus.
- the location, - the friendly atmosphere - if I ask something, the solution come nearly immidiately - breakfast terrace view to sea
- a little bit noisy because of the small street in front of the hotel - difficult to find the hotel by car (narrow oneway streets, traffic)
The rooms are spacios, which is a surprise in Istanbul. Everything is very clean, bathrooms are fully equipped with all toiletries. Everything has an awesome design, starting from the facade finishing the hotel info envelopes. Breakfast is good and served at the terrace with a nice view on Marmara. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the main hisctorical places,
It may be not so easy to find it at first, but its in such a calm place, that at night you know the value of being away from the noisy streets.
The staff do a great job in making guests feel welcomed and comfortable. They are attentive and responsive. It is small hotel with a small number of staff, and yet each of them take on multiple roles to run the hotel efficiently. Breakfast at the roof top terrace was a bonus, overlooking the sea and Blue mosque. The location is within five minutes walk to major attractions in Sultanahmet area, though on first arrival (if you do not ask for airport/hotel transfer), it is a little tricky to find. Overall, a nice homely place with good food nearby and great location.
Breakfast poor choice.room gloomy with very little daylight.asked for early morning call to go to airport night duty person asleep on settee, I woke him up instead of him waking me.
Welcoming small hotel very near Blue Mosque and other major sites. Pleasant terrace for breakfast and relaxation at other times of day.
The lighting in our room was poor and the sound-proofing could have been better. Having said that we slept quite well.
Tremendous location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, lovely roof top breakfast terrace... I would definitely come again.
Great hotel: very friendly staff, perfect location (5min walk to blue mosque), lots of nice restaurants close by; The room had a great size, was super clean and quiet. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace which was nice. Would def stay here again
Dilhayat is a beautiful hotel, spotless and with really helpful and friendly staff. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Sultanahmet
Wonderful staff, beautiful views, excellent location, quiet street, delicious breakfast
My husband & I stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We arrived in the early hours after a night flight and it was great to be able to have a nice comfortable bed. The next day we were offered an upgrade to a larger room for no extra cost and while the original room was fine, our 2nd room was superb. All the staff were extremely helpful in arranging tours, transport etc. We loved the breakfasts on the terrace and being able to use the terrace whenever we wanted. The location is great near the Sultanahmet area (Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia but in a quiet street. Would definitely recommend this hotel and if we return to Istanbul this is where we would stay.
The only problem was that sometimes the Wi-Fi was slow in connecting in our room.
This is a small hotel with only 6 rooms, so and we got to know the staff personally. Ahmed & Hami (we were unable to meet the third member of staff as he was on holidays) could not be more helpful, friendly and caring. They truly wanted us to feel we were at home in the hotel & to enjoy Istanbul and they went out of their way to ensure we did. The furnishings in the room & lobby were old and beautiful, there is 24 hour reception service. Ahmed graciously lent us his Istanbul Kart (Card) which we used to travel around the city on the metro, tram & ferry. Hami told us where the locals shop and gave us instructions on how to get there. The room & bathroom were very comfortable & clean with fresh linen everyday. Breakfast on the roof was gorgeous. We were invited to use the roof at any time, which we did in the evening for drinks. The location was very central to the old city; 5-7 minutes to the Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Bascilica Cistern & Tarihi Sultanahmet Kofetcisi which serves the best, cheap Koftas in all of Istanbul. Locals line up to get in! 10 metres from the hotel there is a laundry which charges a cheap 10 ytl (try) for 1 kg of washing & drying, and opposite there is a tour operator which charges a very reasonable 15 ytl (try) for a transfer to the airport. I cannot sing any higher praises of this hotel. It is a gem!! And I wish only good things for the hotel, it's owner & staff. Don't look for any other hotel, book a room at the Dilhayat Kalfa Hotel when you next visit Istanbul. You will not be disappointed. 10 out of 10 for this hotel.
Nothing!! It was perfect & wonderful.
Very nice and cozy hotel. Perfect location.We lived in a not very large room .20 sq. m. is slight exaggeration , may be with bathroom:)). But room is cozy. Friendly staff. Wonderful terrace for breakfast overlooking the Marmara Sea. The terrace is accessible at any time. I and my husband liked to spend an evening there with a drink , after visiting the attractions of Istanbul.
Cosy hotel in a nice place. Imagine sitting at the terrace at breakfast looking at the remainings of ancient Konstantinople with a view at historical Istanbul, Marmara, ships and seagulls flying by. Romantic feelings and warm wellcome - you feel really like at home here. Wonderfull place. We were travelling with a baby and besides romantic environment enjoyed full support from the hotelkeepers. Baby was happy and so were we. Thanks a lot and all the best!
Our room (no.16) was beautiful and spacious, the staff were very helpful and the buffet breakfast each morning was varied and plentiful. The hotel is in walking distance of most things and is set in a lovely quiet street - would recommend!
Great Location,only 4 mins walk from The Blue Mosque which is opposite the Hagia Sofia & which is right next to the Topkapi Palace. Excellent Staff,wonderful service,amazing view from roof top at breakfast. Restaurants,bars & shops all within a few mins.
