Some unusual decor - but in general a very clean and comfortable hotel. Based in a good location very close to Taksim square and walking distance to a lot of other cool places. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Might be best to request a room at the back of the hotel as Cumhuriyet Caddesi can be a busy noisy s...

The hotel is situated near Taksim Square, which is easly accessible with public transport or the HAVATAS buses from Ataturk Airport. The Sultanhamet historic district is about 30-40min away by public transport. The hotel has freshly renovated rooms which are very nicely furnished and clean bath, clean rooms with AC and safe. Baths have even 2 showers.
The breakfast is plentyfull for everyone however the coffee and the juices are not that good. But the rest ist frehs and good quality.

Room Tip: Try to get a room looking in the backyard. These rooms are more quiet than the ones facing the Cumhu...

Booked a double room for 3 nights atleast 2 months in advance.
Reached hotel tired at 03:00 AM. Manager in-charge shocked us saying that there are no available rooms for the night as some occupant was sick and had decided to extended his stay!!!!
That was ridiculous and he did not seem too apologetic about it.
He put us up in another nasty hotel nearby and had us picked up at 11:00 am next morning.
Extremely unprofessional and pathetic least to say...

Having said that, the next 2 days in contrast was absolutely brilliant! The rooms are very modern and clean.The day-time staff was very efficient and professional.Breakfast was very good!
The hotel is centrally located and about 45-60 minutes ride from the airport.

So if u r unlucky you can have a nasty experience otherwise it will be a fantastic stay!

Dear Guest,

First of all, we would like to say sorry one more time about this inconvionce. It was very difficult for us to have such a problem at very late time like this. Unfortunately, one of our guest could not leave the room because of his health problem on the check out date and it made us to accomodate you in another hotel. We are also sorry about the other hotel but it was the best one which we could find after that time.

But we are glad to make you happy at least for the rest of your stay.

If you contact us directy for your next visit, you can be sure that, we will make you forget that unpleasant experience.

Sincerly,
Cengiz Akcay

We went to Konak Hotel last year in August and we had requested for an interconnected room which we did not get, instead we got two rooms on different floors. Also the room were really small and no desk.But the service was really good and the staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was amazing! Overall an average stay!

We spend 5 days of our holiday in this hotel, it's located near taksim square and bus station which has airport shuttle bus. Our room was clean,modern,slightly small with free wifi. Breakfast was good but not perfect specially fruit juices were not fresh. Staff on reception desk were very helpful and polite. All together we spend nice holiday there and we will come back in our next visit.

The rooms were spacious, nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable, and I slept well. I was not very satisfied with the breakfast. The selection of food was poor, the orange and apple juices didn't taste good, and the waiters used too much time to clean the tables.
