    Nice clean hotel in a quieter area that's near Sultanahmet attractions & things like the Arasta bazaar. The person at the desk was really nice & friendly & they helped us get a taxi to go to the airport at 4 AM. Had a short stay so didn't get a chance to try the breakfast but the terrace view seemed really nice. One minor complaint was that the safe in the room didn't seem to be working.

    Location! Location! Location!

    I had a great experience at the hotel. The location is great and the staff members are extremely helpful, welcoming and friendly. I had the feeling that I was at home. For example, I had a bad experience at the airport where an agency overcharge me 180 USD for the transportation to the hotel. The staff again was very helpful and even talked with the police and offer me to go to the police station to put the complain. Overall my experience at Istanbul was amazing in part due to the Dilhayat Hotel.

    The best thing about this property is that u feel urself at home and that's bcs of the friendly staff they have,a big thanks to the manager abdelrahim who deserves to give him credit for his efforts to keep everyone satisfied with the service, the only remark i can give is that u can use better bed sheets bcs the one u have seems to be old ,but overall it was a very pleasant experience

    Great location, clean room, very nice people

    As the title said, the hotel location was great. A very short walking distance to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia Museum. The room was very clean. The breakfast was simple. The people were very nice. Abdul from front desk was very helpful. He gave us a lot of useful information. We will refer this place to our friends. Overall we were having great time!

    Charming little hotel in the heart of Old Town

    Charming little hotel in the heart of Old Town. Easy walk to Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. Reception person Abdul was very welcoming, friendly and so eager to help us. After all day sightseeing, every day it was like " coming home". Very personable. It was a home of the famous 18th century woman composer Dilhayat Kalfa, nicely renovated for modern comfort. I particularly loved the tastefully decorated reception area and staircase.
