Early in the morning you will certainly feel some kind of religious atmosphere due to the prayer of the students of the seminary nearby.
And from the dining room, you can see the sea as well as the old column.
Up on the roof terrace restaurant, you can overlook the see flooded with ships.
Sunset is just fantastic!
You may be surrounded by sea-gulls.

Hotel Daphne is centrally located in Sultanahmet in Istanbul. All the key attractions - the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Restaurants etc are a short walk away. The trams are close by as well. The hotel premises are small, but the rooms are fairly large (bathrooms decent size) and can comfortably provide for a couple with two large suitcases. There is no self-catering coffee and tea facility in the rooms, but the hotel management has no issues in your making coffee and taking it up to your room in the morning. Breakfast is limited, functional. If you have time, don't miss dinner on the terrace restaurant which has stunning view at night. Overall, we had a great stay and would happily recommend this.

I stayed in room 205 at this hotel from April 5- April 8 /2012. I did a stop over from spending a couple of weeks touring India. This hotel is a boutique hotel. It has approximately 20 rooms and very very personable. They speak English and are very helpful with tours and pre-paid airport shuttle service back to the airport (only 15 TLs). The hotel room has all what you need and it looks like what you see on the hotel.com websites etc. I found the location very ideal and best for a tourist. All the great must see places are waking distance or a short Trem ride. The breakfast was god they served most Europeans which is very understandable. However, food plenty to get you ready for all the walks. I found the bed great to sleep. The bathroom was very clean and cared for. The shower doors did have a challenge for they did not closed exactly tight and therefore I would leak water most times. The heater levels were a tad loud so keep it so very low and you will not have an issue. The TV needed some instructions at the start. However there are TV English channels but you have to search for them, many many channels to watch them. The hotel location is easy to return from your shopping spree since the hotel is so close to the happening places and of course the eateries too. Ask the front desk clerk for the hotel shuttle back which is a heck of alot cheaper than the taxis upon arrival at the airport.

Room Tip: Take a lower level room to un up and down the stairs.

We stayed here for two nights in April. The reception was very attentive when we arrived late at night. The room was spacious and clean. The room safe didn't work..we were in 403. They were happy to organize tea in the morning as they had no self service in the room. The bathroom was standard size and had all the amenities. The biggest advantage is the location..in the heart of Sultanahmet, close to all the historic places like Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and the Topkapi museum. The Grand Bazaar is 7 minutes away. You can see the sea from Room 502. Close to restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed in this lovely boutique hotel for 3 nights on 17 - 20 March 2012 (Room 304) and came back for 1 more night on 27th March (Room 203) before living for Brunei which was arrange by Magnificent Travel, Turkey. Both rooms are excellent and clean at all time. could not be more satisfied with the service, with homey atmosphere and friendly staffs (the room service, bar staff and reception manager). the staffs here are not just friendly but very accommodating whenever needed. Breakfast was great with varieties of options.

Location is the best where all in walking distances in the heart of Sultan Ahmed square the hippodrome, blue mosque, grand bazaar. we would love to recommend this hotel to future customers.
