Great location

Posted Aug 6, 2016
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Improve there water problem, as in the first 24 hours there was very little or no water in the hotel.
Location: Central location, with Haga Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Mosaic Museum and the Museum of Islamic art at distances of 7 to 20 minutes walk.
Central location uphill short walk to main square. The hotel terrace was a great place to have breakfast with lovely views of the Bosphorus. The breakfast was a feast with so much variety.

Nice hotel

Posted May 13, 2016
Dara hotel is great. It's within walking distance to many places like, sultan Ahmet mosque, Hagia Sophia museum, topkapi palace, grand bazaar, spice bazaar, and a handful of beautiful mosques. The staff were nice and helpful. The rooftop buffet served nice food and had a nice view of the Marmara sea. Overall, the stay at Dara hotel was great. I would definitely come again.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The cleaning staff and reception staff were lovely. Good range of breakfast foods. The breakfast staff were less friendly and not that helpful.

The staff are friendly. Breakfast was good. Location is good. Room is so small and very noisy. Pluming is plugged. Shower was not clean. Overall, i would not recommend this hotal.
