This was our second visit to Istanbul, having previously stayed elsewhere in the city and further away from the center. This time our stay was much better due to the hotel and the help and advice of the staff at Dersaadet. When we arrived, we were given such a warm welcome from the staff, an orientation, Turkish delights and tea, then our luggage was taken to the room. The hotel interior and decor was fabulously authentic, well kept and lovingly restored. It is clear that the owner takes pride in his work! The terrace offers fantastic views over the Bosphorus at sunset, so well worth having dinner in the hotel!
