I didn't had a reservation in Konak Hotel, then I made a C/In firstly for 2 nights but I loved the hotel and I extanded my stay for three nights more.

We were greated welcomed by Mr Okan Vuruskaner who were very helpful and friendly. He offered me to deluxe room which were larger in size, it was something I really appreciated. Check in was very fast and smooth. We were informed with the WiFi password, so we had free access to the internet anywhere in the hotel.

The rooms were perfectly clean, comfortable and well decorated. Honestly, I had no problems whatsoever with the hotel. Especially receptionists (Mr. Serkan and Ms. Husniye) can speaks fluent English so it was very easy to communicate with them.

The location of the hotel is perfect, right in Taksim square for 5 minutes by walk, around of the hotel there are many restaurants, ATM machines, supermarkets.. etc. Right next to the hotel there is a Starbucks.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to stay in Taksim. I would definitely stay there again.
Thank you Mr.Okan, Mr.Serkan, Ms.Husniye.

In its price category the Konak Hotel is absolutely excellent. The staff is very helpful and friendly, my room was really good and clean, had all the necessary services including a superb rain shower, minibar prices are reasonable, excellent breakfast buffet, the hotel is located very close to Taksim square and the shopping street Istiklal, and yet is was quiet at night even with the window open. The hotel can be reached very easily from either of the Istanbul airports; from Atatürk by metro line M1, then at Zeytinburnu station change to streetcar T1 line all the way to the end at Kabataş, then the funicular to Taksim (three jetons so 9 lira in total), then walk 5 min. to Konak. From Sabiha airport take the bus (13 lira) to Taksim and walk to Konak. Or take a taxi for about 60-80 lira from either airport. The old town with the famous mosques, Topkapi, etc. can be reached by funicular from Taksim, then T1 streetcar to Sultanahmet station or go two stops further (Beyazit) to visit the Grand Bazar.

The rooms are good eith reasonable size with reasonable rates. The staff is friendly and very helpful, always smiling. The breakfast is good. The hotel is at the center of Taksim, very nice location. The restaurant is tiny and the menu is limited but food is delicious. The bar closes at 23:00 o'clock, the only bad thing about the hotel...

.This hotel is walking distance to Takasim Square and funicular and shops. The first night we were given a room on the ground floor which has a tiled corridor and we hardly slept at all due to footsteps from guests coming in and out . The room looked dated. We complained the next day and they moved us to a higher floor which was quieter and more modern. The breakfast is wonderful , lots of choices and staff very attentive. Overall it's a compact hotel in a great location .

The personnel is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, even if they do not offer any view ( no need, if you are out and about). The breakfast offers a large tasty variety, but the ambiance (including music) could be improved. Make sure you enjoy the tea instead of the coffee.
