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.
Tremendous location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, lovely roof top breakfast terrace... I would definitely come 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.
balcony breakfasts access to balcony at all times personal service, friendly staff 'at home' feeling
Friendly and obliging personnel. Terrace breakfast is good.
Quite location 5 minutes from everything you want to see or vist. Very good restaurant recomended by the staf.Our room was very nice and big.The staff gave us the possibility to choose our room.
Location was great, breakfast good, room comfortable.
Had to move rooms after we had booked on the lower floor 5 months beforehand.....It was not available on check-in...bad business when we booked so far in advance.
Great quiet location but within a pleasant 5-10 min walk of the palace, blue mosque etc, supermarkets around the corner. Rooftop terrace was just lovely, and breakfast with fresh fruit very nice. Bathroom as good as you get, everything impeccably clean. Staff very helpful and friendly.
It was all good.
I was made to feel part of a family during my 11 day stay. The kindness and attention to my comfort was excellent. It was hard to say goodbye. Location is fabulous, and close to everything. Breakfast on the roof was top notch, and a great way to begin a day. I cannot say enough about this place. A MUST BOOK place.
This is a wonderful boutique hotel, located moments away from the major attractions but in a quiet spot. The staff (Hami and Ahmet) are very kind and always thoughtful - they constantly make you feel like this is a home away from home. The rooms are very comfortable, with modern well-equipped bathrooms (and good water pressure in the showers). Breakfast on the terrace is a great way to start each day.
There is nothing I didn't like about this place.
This Hotel is in the middle of the most interesting part of Istanbul lot's of things within walking distance no need for transport. Not on the smartest street , but that also applies to many hotels in this area. The staff are super friendly and very helpful.
Gorgeous hotel! very polite staff, delicious breakfasts. Especially liked the terrace, where we drank coffee and looking at the sea.
Beautyfull little spot right in the heart of the city. Very Quiet. 3 minutes walk to Blue Mosque and Hagia Spohia. Friendly and helpfull personnel. Hotel is very clean and properly maintained. We'll consider it next time definitely!
Position, nice and small, friendly staff, rooftop view. towels, beds
Decor is a bit old fashioned.
Very good services and extremely friendly staff. They managed to make us feel at home
room too small and narrow; breakfast choice so limited
The location of this wonderful hotel is great, 3 minutes from Blue Mosque and others places of interest. The staff is friendly and professional, always ready to help. This hotel is like a home, so nice, quite and cosy
Everything was great.
No lift was inconvenient. We were forced to use the stairs (2 floors) carrying our baby and her stroller.
