The Darkhill Hotel is located at the Beyazıt district of Istanbul, the mile stone of rich history. Because of the location, it’s very easy to access to the touristic areas all around Istanbul. It’s only a walking distance away from the Blue Mosque, St.Sophia, Sultanahmet Square, Grand Bazaar, and the Suleymaniye Mosque.
"good hotel clean - the room size is good - the food is tastey but no more options and all days the same kind , in the to"
good hotel clean - the room size is good - the food is tastey but no more options and all days the same kind , in the total is good and have nice swimming pool and sauna for free. I stayed at darkhill on my own for 6 nights and was put in a lovely double room. Staff were helpful and friendly. Th room was nice, some Street noise but I live in a city so it didn't bother me at all.
"Disappointing amenities and service; falls short of the hotel's potential"
Disappointed by what appears to be a modern hotel that falls short of expectation. While the roof deck, lobby and room is nice, and the staff tries to be friendly; it fell short when it came to things like: 1. Asked about a hot jacuzzi then finding out it is only a very cold jacuzzi. 2. A room that smelled musty/dank. 3. Being asked to pay $5 USD for a piece of plastic to cover your hair just to sit in the cold jacuzzi. 4. Being denied a request for a corkscrew or for a small iron to remove a wrinkle. 5. Poor quality Wi-Fi in restaurant and room. Multiple dropped calls. 6. When I tried (within 2 hours of check-in on the first day) to cancel my 2nd day stay, the front desk told me with confidence that I just needed to contact Orbitz. I did so, after spending a frustrating hour on the phone with Orbitz (dropped calls on poor quality hotel Wi-Fi). I was later told by Orbitz and then later by the front desk that it was the hotel (only) that refused to cancel my stay (I paid the hotel directly). When I e-mailed hotel management they told me to speak to a front desk manager in the morning. None was available around 10 AM. So they refused to allow me to stay only one day instead of two days and tried to falsely blame Orbitz. 7. The quality of the breakfast was "ok" and far short of the Marmara Hotel, for example. All of these issues have been inconsistent with many great hotels in this great country. On the positive side, the roof deck offers great views of the waterfront and the room is well designed. The lobby was also very pleasant. Perhaps new management/ownership can remedy the situation and bring in more visitors to what should otherwise be a great hotel. Please note, I'm not that picky. I've stayed in hostels and luxury hotels while riding a motorcycle around Turkey. This was my only negative stay.
"Clean, quiet and good location."
Clean, quiet, located in a beautiful area very close to the tram station Laleli. the rooms are small, safety box in the rooms. a beautiful roof view.The breakfast is good but almost same everyday. Free WIFI. A pool on the roof without using I don't know why and another small pool underground with cold water unfortunately one of the few hotels with pools in European Istanbul, if you come to Istanbul for pools I advice you the Asian side with less real estate density. Close to tourist places full of store. Beth and sauna are not bed, cold pool water. isn't worth the price you can find a less a price with 4 stars hotels. I don't appreciate the treatment of the staff with us in check out when they hide my luggage from me just because we have not paid in time the expensive pool cap (charge $ 5). they made me very angry, that wasn't nice and kind of them at all. but be sure we did not want to steal you, they not apologize. some of the staff were not friendly.
"Great hotel with free spa"
The hotel is very nice, very clean, spa with swimming pool free, the breakfast is nice in the roof restaurant, Mr youssef in the reception is very helpful and the stuff was very friendly Great value the location Is very good very near to station LEila in sultan Ahmed area
"Better than expected"
Room is very clean, staffs are friendly, good breakfast with a spectacular view from the roof bar, very affordable price for a 4 star hotel. Location is very close to tourists spots with access to trams and buses. The only negative point is that the bathroom is a little bit dark with lack of lighting.
