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)

Fair 4,0
Nasty inn
Too much noise outside at any time, smokers under de window. When walking in the room the floor cracks at every single step. There is no bathrobe no tooth brush. The wardrobe is for dwarf folks maybe.The is no iron too. So I don’t understand how this shanty is open in touristic area. The tv is around 25”. It’s waisted money and journey.
HOCINE, ca3 night trip
Fair 4,0
Cons- Poor AC in some rooms, carpet is old and unclean, water in shower drains extremely slowly. rooms are so close you can hear neighbors sniff/fart/nosiy. disappointing service from front desk. Pros- good location and close to center/ sultanahmet site seeing area. good breakfast menu. I am giving 2 stars for these two positive aspects. I arrived around 11 am and was told if I got checked into room at that early check-in hour I would have to move to another room on 3rd night. so I just decided to wait till usual check in around 2pm. I was given a room on the top floor and AC did not work at all even after 1/2 hour and it was so so hot the front desk person Ismail said all his rooms were taken. I was so uncomfortable I was ready to check into another hotel! then he finally obliged and put me in a slightly better room on a lower floor with AC actually working. this room was much better. water in shower drained extremely slowly. Don't book taxi service with hotel- the quoted prices were more expensive than street prices.

Suneel, us4 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
Location the best; comfort and breakfast also good
Found out the place via Excellent location, within 5 minutes of Blue Mosque, 7-8 minutes of Hagia Sophia and 10 minutes from Topkapi. Also walked to grand bazar from here. Given the language barrier in Turkey, it's very convenient to tell the taxi driver coming back from anywhere to take you to 'Sultanahmet Cami' since everyone know how to get there, and you can walk the rest of the way. The staff is good, but just be on the lookout for some of their tour recommendations. Do your own research. For example, the Bosphorus tour (no dinner, show) they recommended in the evening was only for the Bosphorus and not the golden horn; yet still shows 2 hour trip time with the price of 20 EUR. The evening tour operated by Big Bus costs the same but includes the golden horn with the same trip time. The only difference is you having to walk to a Big Bus stop and getting on there, whereas the other tour organizer will pick you up from the hotel. All in all, highly recommended!
