My boyfriend and I stayed at the Tashkonak hotel for a week in november.
We had booked a taxi transfer with the hotel and this was arranged for us with a professional company.
The hotel staff from the manager, to front desk, to room service, were all really friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We originally booked 3 nights as we were not sure if we were going to stay in Istanbul the whole week, or what we wanted to do, but we ended up staying 8 nights all up, and the staff were really understanding, letting us add on an extra night ect and it was no problem at all. The rooms were cleaned each day with fresh towels.
Breakfast each morning was simple but good. You really dont want a big breakfast as the kebabs you will have later will make up for it.
The hotel is short walk to Blue mosque, Aya Sophia, the palace, and a tram stop (which is only a few stops to the spice market and grand bazzar and the new town so it is a good location).
There are a few nice restaurants near the hotel, such as Tamara, very cheap and yummy.
Overall would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a nice, affordable hotel to stay in while you are doing some sight seeing in Istanbul. Would stay here again!
