    The staff at Dara Hotel was supreme, always helpful and ready to answer any question one might about hotel or about sight seeing. The room I was given was small but beds were comfortable. The most important thing was that I wanted one room for 6 of us and they had it for a good price. I wanted my children with me in the same room. Internet connection was excellent and every major attraction was at comfortably walking distance and easy access to trains. Mconalds and tons of Turkish restaurants are in EZ access. I would try them again.

    For a choosy person like me break fast was a little weak. Improvement in this area would really be something Dara Hotel would like to look into. A mix of Turkish and Continental break fast would be great.

    Very nice rooftop terrace where the breakfast buffet was served daily.

    There seemed to be a problem with the bathroom plumbing which resulted in an unpleasant order.

  • Family with children

    The helpfull of most staff. The big welcome smile of watress.

    Very very small rooms that you hardly can move inside the room. These rooms are not good for couples nor families. They might be suitable for singles. Its location is not convenient for walking nor it is easy to reach public transportation. It could be good for athletes since it is located in very steep road. The hotel management never declare these facts about room sizes. In addition, they apply stringent cancellation policy, by applying the full period charging in case of cancelling.

    Free Wi-fi access. Good breakfast in a relaxing terrace. Very helpful and friendly staff. Water pressure and temperature was good. Daily assortment of toiletries.

    The room lighting is not enough to read. The curtains do not avoid the sun for breaking in since dawn. Noise insulation is weak. The windows in quad room face a wall. Upon arrival, around 9 pm, the manager told me that he did not have the two double rooms for my family of four. We would have to stay at another hotel during that evening and we would be back to the Dara hotel the following night. After much of arguing and negotiation, later in the night, the manager arranged a quad room (€119) but still charged the price of two doubles (€158).

    Its location near the historical Istanbul area Sultanahmed area

    Breakfast, Services and cleanness are really poor, need to improve more

    The staff is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is very excellent. If we have any chance to visit Istanbul again, we will definitely stay at this hotel.

    The only problem is that the map of Dara hotel is not totally correct. But it is ok since we have our own travelling book.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    We stayed in the Hotel for 9 days (extended for 4 days). Overall the stay was comfortable. Staff is excellent. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices. Also, it is close to most of the historic sites in Istanbul.

    Only negative thing is that on our arrival we were told that one of the guest is leaving a day late due to sickness and transferred us to another Hotel for one night. My family didn't like that Hotel at all since it has no elevator and the stairs were like a death trap. But they moved us back to the Hotel next morning.

  • Older travelers

    location of the hotel rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast very good collection of award winning again, I hope the staff is very helpful in Istanbul that I prefer if I go to a thank you for everything ...

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Hotel staff were very friendly and extremely helpful with directions and general orientation in Istanbul.

    Our family room on the top floor was too hot. There needs to be better air conditioning in that room. I was also concerned about fire safety as there was no fire exit, only a narrow staircase to exit the building.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Hotel staff was helpful. Location was perfect to get around in Istanbul. Room was great for us we were 3 travelers so all had place to sleep. Air conditioning was great after day in hot sun. Restraunts near by as well as market. Had good shuttle service to airport which was free with 4 night stay.

    Initially difficult to find because streets are not labeled well.
