    Very good

    Everything was nice, but there was nothing outstanding.

    We were given one bottle of water when we arrived, and after that any other bottles were 5 Turkish lira each. When the water is not potable, it's an insult that any hotel does not provide compimentary bottled water.

    if you like to stay in central Istanbul Palazzo Donizetti is an amazing choice! It is on the hard of the hip Tünel area, covered with lots of good restaurant and bars.

    some rooms can be noisy because of the vibrant night life around.

    The palazzo donizetti is centrally located to many attractions and is in walking distance to Taksim square. It is also close to Istiklal Street, which is great if you want to look at the local fashion and souvenirs! The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly and very helpful. There are many nice restaurants and bars near, but I was very happy with the hotels facilities, there was an Italian restaurant in the hotel and the food was exceptional. Also available in the hotel is a spa with beautiful Turkish baths, which I personally loved. Unfortunately my stay in the hotel was short, but I would definitely love to go back!!!

    I stayed in Palazzo Donizetti on my recent business/leisure trip to Istanbul and all I can say about this hotel is that it was absolutely wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast provided had a great variety and the quality was brilliant. I also had the chance to eat in the hotel restaurant and found the Italian food there to be delicious. The location of the hotel couldn't have been any better. It was within 5 minutes of walking distance to the city center (Taksim Square) and with a great view of The Golden Horn. I wish I got to stay in the hotel for a longer period of time and I know that I would definitely like to stay there again when I travel to Istanbul.

    Very good

    One hotel concierge staff particularly helpful Nice big walk in showers and clean smelling sheets good size rooms good location on takism side - but see also downside below

    Variable concierge service, depending on who is helping (perhaps due to poor english) Only 1 lift so very very long waits in the mornings as people travel up for breakfast Very noisy with party music from across the road fri and sat evenings till early morning. Definitely a happening area..but if you need quiet restful sleep, this is not for you.

    Fabulous

    Hotel being in the historical peninsula and in the middle of Taxim is a great advantage for the outsiders. I spent only one night at the hotel and enjoyed the stay. It is clean,comfy and surprisingly the food we ordered from room service was quite tasty.

    You might be disturbed of the noise coming from the street during your sleep, but if you plan to stay the night at Taxim this is unavoidable .

    view from the room facing aL bosforus is excellent.

    room on the back side is too hot, had to open the window, which brings in a lot of niose.also, when checking out, receiption staff wanted to charge us for doubled room rate, although accomodation was paid when checking in according to my reservation on Booked.net, also wanted to charge e for xtras that I didn't take, and hardly convenced them to pay for the staff I too only when they couldn't give proove for the other things.

    The staff was very friendly, I liked the overall design of the hotel, I think it has a great potential, once it overcomes the problems with getting to run properly.

    There were numerous problems, all probably because the hotel is so new: the rooms were overheated (30 degrees C and more) the only way to get the room temperature down was to open the windows. In November, this is not very comfortable, also it was impossible to sleep as the street below was full of people on their way to party. The staff completely ignored the problem. There was no control over hot and cold water in shower - extremely inconvenient! And unlike advertised - the spa was not working. For 340 Eur that I paid, I could have stayed in Pera Palace across the street, but I wanted to try the new hip hotel - obviously a mistake at this time. However, I still believe that after some time it will be a great hotel.
