Can't wait to came back...

Stayed here for five days on my first visit to Istanbul, and I could not choose better hotel for Palazzo Donizetti has it all: fantastic location with many great restaurants near by, specious and perfectly clean room, discret and efficiont staff, tasty breakfast with wonderful view. PD Hotel is unpretetious but gives you absolutely everything you would expect and need for perfect stay away from home. Coming to Istanbul again in a month and will not think twice where to stay, at Palazzo Donizetti, off course...

Not a five star hotel

Great location. Walking distance to Istiklal and train station. Stayed in the corner suite on the 3rd floor and street noise can be heard until early morning. Only had the breakfast buffet on our first day and it was blah. Staff are not as friendly as you would expect. If you are used to staying in a five star hotel, this will definitely disappoint you. If you are in a budget, would be spending a great deal outside with no plans of using the hotel facilities, and can sleep through street musicians, loud drunk tourists smashing beer bottles on the side walks (seriously, this happened quite a few times), then this hotel would do.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

As much as possible don't buy anything from the grand bazaar. Same item can be bought from Istiklal street or the local market (a few minutes walk from the grand bazaar) for half the price. And if ever you will be there (grand bazaar) DO NOT and I mean DO NOT ever let them lead you into this little room inside their shops because they will not let you out without buying anything. They are the pushiest vendors I've ever dealt with.

Perfect location for Exploring Istanbul

The hotel has a rich history . The decor is very pleasant and amenities are fine. There was a problem with AC. It it was not a big problem for us as were staying thre at the end of April. If you like to walk it is a very nice about 30 minute walk to the Old Town. It is also great to see the newer part of the city by just walki in the hotel's neighborhood.

Fantastic Location

Spacious rooms, friendly staff. It was close to very nice restaurants, bars and coffee houses. We fell in love with the rooftop bar where they served the breakfast. It had the most amazing views.

Better than expected

At the beginning I was a bit taken a back seeing the hotel and the front desk's service and the reception set up, definitely not a 5 star set up. However the following day the Duty Manager offered an upgrade which I think was truly nice. Since then he was very attentive and ensured our comfort till the end of this journey. His positive attitude and behaviour has made us stay in this hotel. In one word he is simply amazing. Thanks to my booking agent for taking up my concern and the Duty Manager.

Overal Great Place

Nice hotel perfectly located near Taksim Square, and easy walk to the metro and Old Tunnel transit. Very nicely appointed. The street-side rooms might receive noise from the weekend party resellers (which seem to stay out until the wee hours) and the electronic key system was notoriously unreliable, requiring daily (and sometimes twice daily) returns to the front desk for reprogramming. Otherwise great place.
