Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were the first guests to stay at this hotel. It is a centrally located brand new hotel walking distance to all of the historical monuments and shopping area. Everything in the room was brand new, The hotel itself will be serving as a 4 star hotel when it is fully opened. The hotel staff was very professional and was able to assist us with everything we needed. We would stay again at this place, if we plan to visit Istanbul again.

I stayed for 4 nights in this hotel in a single room with queen-size bed. The rooms are functional with kettle and (empty) fridge. Complementary still water is provided and a room safe is available.

The restaurant on the 5th floor has a beautiful view over the bosphorus. The breakfast buffet is plentiful.

The hotel staff from the concierge to the cleaning personnel are super friendly. Mustafa and Selim were very helpful.

It's a bit tricky to get there by taxi. The taxi driver dumped me 100m before the hotel because he did not want to enter the labyrinth of narrow roads that are common in this part of the city. Other taxi drivers I used had no problem finding the hotel. If you arrive at IST airport, the hotel can arrange a limousine for EUR 45 one way. I prefer a metered taxi which costs around TRY 400, about half the price.
The big sightseeing attractions of this area are all within walking distance.

I will stay at the Demiray again on my next trip.

In general, the hotel is nice and the rooms are well designed and equipped with new furniture and the required facilities. The breakfast is very good and the hotel staff are very friendly, especially the restaurant staff: Ozgur, Tobi and Karan. The hotel's location is near the grand bazar, Mahmout Pasha and very close to wholesale shops. I faced two issues during my stay. The first was inadequate room cleaning by housekeeping (we even made a complaint to the hotel management on this regard. The second is the street where the hotel is located is closed or blocked most of the time lack of access to transportation from and to the hotel. One needs to walk for 5-15 minutes in order to be able to find a taxi. With a family and elder people, I struggled a lot. The hotel needs to improve hygiene in the rooms and is recommended to consider provision of shuttle services from and to the hotel for the guests.

The comfort and staff were incredibly compatible during my stay. The location of the hotel is definitely not incompatible with the service they provide, it even has the best breakfast according to the environment, at the same time the restaurant staff works incredibly disciplined and carefully. I congratulate the manager and also management
There is absolutely no waste of time in elevators. The rooms are very spacious, also the check in was even very nice.
I wish you continued success and want to let you know that I will definitely be back.

I really enjoyed my short stay at the Demiray. It’s a brand new hotel and all the fixtures and fittings reflect that. The room was spacious and bathroom also perfect.
The location is good but on the top of a steep hill. And, when the traffic is at its peak, transportation won’t come outside the hotel but drop you off a few blocks away.
Breakfast was excellent and fresh. The view from the restaurant was outstanding too.
There was construction work nearby and you could hear the constant drilling and banging on the street but I couldn’t hear it in the hotel or my room at all.
Staff were super helpful too.
All in all- a great stay. I felt the cost was slightly higher and on a par with more well known branded hotels- however, I’ve received the same quality service and the room and breakfast was on a par.
I didn’t venture out in the dark much but on the one occasion I did- it wasn’t easy locating the nearby food outlets and it was a steep climb to return to the hotel.

My family can be quite difficult to please, but the staff at the Demiray Hotel have been extremely accommodating. The rooms have always been left spotless after cleaning. The front desk has helped us with every request we have had. Our room has been extremely comforting and quiet after a day of shopping in the nearby packed bazaars, museums, and restaurants! Can’t wait to come back to the Demiray!

The employees are really friendly and help at any time of the day especially oğuz bey and the breakfast employees.
The rooms are really clean and comforting.
And the location of the hotel is really good, you’re basically in the middle of istanbul and can go any way you want with: boats, trains, taxi’s etc.
The dining room has view over istanbul for example the: Galata Kulesi, famous bridges, etc.

We were in Istanbul on a holiday trip for a week. The room was very pleasant, it was cozy and clean. There was just a smell of damp when you entered the room every time.
The indoor pool was true to the photographs, clean and warm enough, however the Sauna was not hot enough.
The people in the reception were very helpful, not just on check-in and check-out, but also in giving directions to spots, especially Mert with perfect English, so there were no miscommunication issues and he was really responsible and able to arrange any request. He impressed me the most.
The view of restaurant on the top floor was absolutely amazing and gave you the view of whole city in a glance. Breakfast was delicious and incredibly varied; it was a very wide buffet spread, however I believe the coffee and juice machines need to be upgrade to give a better taste.
The location is great where everything is within walking distance and close enough to the Train Station.
Finally, Good value for the money. My Partner and I would surely choose it again next time we visit Istanbul.

Very well location in the middle of Fetih with fantastic view on bisphorus. The room was very correct in spite of the view from the window that leads to a wall. The Staff is top from the reception to the cleaning staff to the persons responsible for breakfast in the 5th floor, i can mention especially Mehmet, Emre, Selim, Çan for their professionalism and their kindness.
One day we went out for the journey and i forgot to close the safe in the room with our personal papers and 1700$ inside and when we get back late at night we found everything in its place.
Conclusion : I highly recommand this superb Hotel.
