This hotel is certainly worth your money, the friendly staff adds a lot of charm to this place, which is nicely located in the Sultanahmet area.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2010

When searching for a hotel in Istanbul I wanted a place that was clean, had hot water, good breakfast, in a great location and didn't have an over the toilet shower. Eski Konak fit all these requirements and more. The staff was friendly, there is free internet and a great view of the sea. This is a small hotel with 8 rooms, more like a Bed & Breakfast. I stayed 7 nights in the hotel. The hotel isn't full service and isn't for Four Season's clientèle but it is a great value for mid to low priced travelers. An enjoyable place in Sultanahmet.

Note: There are two Eski Konak's in Istanbul. The one we went to is on this adress:

Akbıyık Caddesi, 44
34122 Istanbul, Turkey
[--]

Great location, lots of nice restaurants in this street, everybody should try out Hayat Café, a small restaurant with very nice staff, and a chef that plays Saz (Turkish musical instrument). There are also several travel arrangers in the area, that offer guided tours of varying quality.

It takes three minutes of walking to get to the blue mosque, Hagia Sofia and all the other major tourist attractions. The breakfast is good, my favourites were yoghurt with honey, and the bread with Turkish cheese. You can sit either inside or outside during the breakfast, and the view from the outside area is a nice view of the sea, and the street with all the restaurants.

There are no elevator in the hotel, so I would not recommend it to people with trouble getting up stairs.

We had a really great time. 5 nights = 400 € or 800 TYL (double room).

Many thanks for your kind comments. Rest assured that there is only one Eski Konak Hotel in Istanbul. There are many hotels with the word "Konak" in their name, but only one "Eski Konak".

Very good service. Nice rooms very very clean. Near to most of sightseeings. Good breakfast and nice view on the roof. The best hotel in this budget.

The location of this hotel is just perfect. A 10 minutes walk from sultanahment tram stop amd only 5 minutes walk to Hagi Sophia, Blue Mosque and most Istanbul famous attractions. This is not a proper hotel , only 9 rooms available and have just a very small reception with no lobby area and public toilet. Our double room is at the back of the building on the 3rd floor with no view from window. The room is small but can consider adequate in istanbul. Pretty new furniture, very clean and spotless bathroom .The double bed is small but comfortable and tv with satelite channels ( English) . The breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking the Bophorus, nice view but the breakfast is a bit below par. Typical Turkish breakfast with some cold items . The night view from the terrace was memorable.
When we checked out in the morning before our flight late in the evening. we were allowed to leave our luggage and even have a shower at their sister hotel just few steps away despite all their rooms were full. Something you cannot get if you stay in those establish hotels.
