I highly recommend the Darussaade for the location, cleanliness, safety and friendly staff! Absolutely charming hotel that was a great base for our Istanbul adventure. My husband and I stayed a little over a week and were delighted that we chose the Darussaade. It was our first time in Istanbul and the Darussaade was the perfect location in a well lit area. We were close to all the sites we wished to visit especially the Blue Mosque. Each day the staff would greet us, provide excellent travel suggestions based on our interests and the breakfast buffet was incredible! The penthouse breakfast room had glass panels so all patrons had awe inspiring views of the ocean and historical sites...perfect way to start the day. There were fresh baked goods, fruits, vegetables, Turkish specialty items, cereals and even a chef who made omelets (scrambled eggs for me); basically something for everyone. The cleaning staff was outstanding and responsive to special requests. The only slight issue was being unable to control the thermostat in our room. I get overheated so this most likely won't be a problem for others but was easily solved by opening a window. My husband and I are already planning a return visit and will definitely choose the Darussaade again.

Worth every penny
late review but meant to write it at some point. Darussadde couldn’t have been more perfect. The experience, the food and the people. First and the biggest kuddos to the receptionists, two men who went above and beyond to make sure we were happy at the hotel, even giving their phone numbers to help on anything while we were out on the city exploring. Then the rooms are very classical but perfectly polished and lastly, their breakfast, I can honestly say the best food I ate in Istanbul was the breakfast at Darussadde, amazing, fresh, local, very local but very tasty. Worth it for sure!! And even the waiters were the nicest people. I can say with all honesty it is one of the best stays I’ve had and I’ve stayed at much more expensive and newer hotels, but the experience was just perfect and it is because of their people that that is possible. Also I didn’t pay for any extraordinary rooms, so pretty sure this was the same level of attention than any others would get. If in doubt, I say just book! Worth every penny! (Also location was awesome)
