Overview

About Dersaadet Hotel

Recreation of 19th Century Ottoman Mansion, next to Sultanahmet, Istanbul

This hotel is clad in wood, replicating a late Ottoman Style homestead. Hand painted motifs in guest rooms and public spaces recreate the traditional crafts and custom furnishings that would be typical of such a dwelling. Dark wood mouldings on doors, windows and headboards; the creamy marble of the staircases, the dramatic striped marble in many of the bathrooms, and the handmade Turkish carpets in guest rooms and hallways.

In the lobby, the paintings and hand-made ceiling decoration were created by local artists inspired by Ottoman-era decoration. Along the hallways and stairways, and hanging on the guest room walls, are historic photographs of 19th-century Istanbul, when it was still known among Turks as Dersaadet, the "Gate of Felicity."

Centrally located close to the main Istanbul sights, you see a slice of history from your bedroom

The gate to happiness- Dersaadet! I visited Hotel Dersaadet in January with my daughter. I can really recommend this season, because you feel like you have your own private Istanbul! I discovered Dersaadet means "gate of happiness", and the friendliness of the whole staff really made us feel at home. If you are looking for a central hotel, look no further. This one is smack in the center of the Sultanahmet district: you can be at the Blue Mosque, Topkapi or Aya Sofia in less than 5 minutes on foot. If you have a choice, go for the room with the Turkish bath- there is a huge waterfall shower ( a little 21st century addition here) along with marble walls and the traditional turkish sink and taps. And don't worry if your shower is long, the hot water keeps on coming! The hotel is located between some major mosques, and I read that you could hear the call to prayer at 5 am. Well, I was in the room that was on the ground floor with high windows and that must have helped soundproof the room, because, even though I woke up very early one morning I never heard a sound in the 3 nights I stayed there. Thanks for the free wi-fi, you people really "get it"! It worked like a charm, every time, and I didn't have to sign in every time like at some other hotels.... woo hoo! Breakfast on the roof terrace was a great way to start the day watching the Marmara sea and the seagulls passing by. I was able to have a look at the suites too, really fit for a Sultan, with killer views. The outside was really cool, too, it's all wood and it is an old Ottoman design that is very traditional - it kind of reminded me of an ark. I would come back here in a heartbeat, for the location, the great prices and number one... the genuine Turkish hospitality that shines through. The unusual thing I tell my friends: About my own private Turkish bath in the room!
