Reviewed 23 December 2011

We spent four days in December in Tashkonak. Transfer from airport was smooth and fast. Room was clean and nicely decorated and was cleaned every day. Hotel is located on Sultanahmet and it takes approximately 5 minutes of walking to reach Haghia Sophia, Hippodrome and Blue Mosque. Staff was very friendly (greetings to Hayati). Food was delicious and restaurant is on the top of hotel with a nice sea view.
I am highly recommending this hotel. Also, do not hesitate to visit Istanbul in December, the weather was very good.

As I say in the title of this review we would definitely stay at the Tashkonak Hotel again. It is right in the heart of Sultanhamet and ideally located for sightseeing in Istanbul. We have been to Istanbul before so knew the area fairly well, a car is not needed if you are staying in the city as the public transport is fantastic and amazingly cheap.

Back to the hotel, the staff are wonderful, very helpful and attend to your every need. The hotel room we stayed in was fine, not massive but perfectly acceptable. Bathroom had a very good shower and plenty of hot water. We travelled in late November and the room was nice and warm. We missed tea/coffee making facilities in the room BUT a kettle and tea is provided in the foyer/reception area from 3pm to 8pm in the afternoon. This is FREE! They also provide nice coffees to your room if you wish, again at a very reasonable cost.

Breakfast is served upstairs, the room has fantastic sea views. Breakfast itself was very nice, plenty of choice to suit everones tastes. The staff were very nice and friendly.

We stayed for 4 nights and the cost included pick up from the airport in a very nice people carrier, we were the only passengers. We paid to travel back to the airport in the same manner, there are cheaper alternatives but they run at specific times and it would have meant a long wait at the airport.

All in all another lovely trip to Istanbul, we are planning to go again in the Spring and will definitely be staying at the Tashkonak.

Hi All,
Stay is Istanbul ofr 4 days was a very good expereince. Tashkonak hotel staff was very freindly and accomadating. My all requests are fulfilled, I feel here staff works with heart and there was always a freindly smile on all staff members. I would like to recommend to all as location of hotel was great as it is so near to Blue mosque and I have to say Breakfast is one of the great things to start with, lot of choices for all types of people. Manager Haiti( sorry for spelling error) was very good in suggesting according to our available time. It would not have been this great if I was not at Tashkonak. If rooms can be made little more sound proof it will be very very good hotel.
With My past experience stays in other hotels I feel this hotel deserves 5/5.

All the best guys.
Sateesh

The Tashkonak Hotel is a cosy little hotel more or less around the corner from Sultanamet Square. We stayed for three nights and occupied room 305 which was at the front of the hotel, over reception and underneath the breakfast room. Noise from within the hotel was minimal and although staff must have been busy in the early morning getting breakfast ready there were no loud noises or voices. There was some noise from outside however, either from passing traffic or trains. Our room was clean, tastefully decorated and furnished in a typically Turkish style and suited our needs for our short stay. Breakfast was basic as far as British tastes go but there was enough choice to have something different each day. The homemade jams were delicious!
Great location, fantastic views from the breakfast room and friendly staff. We shall certainly recommend this hotel to our friends and would return ourselves in the future.

This is one of the greatest hotels of any size I have ever stayed at. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The Area is great, with excellent restaurants just south of Blue Mosque and all the attractions of the area. The breakfest in the morning is an excellent way to start the day, and I wont spoil the view...but there is a wonderful view. Istanbul is now a regular stop for my us and hotel Tashkonak is where we will stay.

Room Tip: book early

We booked this hotel after reading the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. Our flight got in quite late and by the time we made our own way to the hotel it was after midnight but the staff were waiting for us.

We had room 106 which wasn't far from reception. Our room faced the street but we weren't bothered with the noise. There was a shared computer just off reception and Wi-Fi. We could get Wi-Fi in our room but I did hear someone else say they had to go to the seating area near reception. The room wasn't huge but it was big enough for us. The shower room was nicely tiled, clean and modern and we had no problem with the hot water.

The breakfast room had lovely views towards the Blue Mosque on one side to the sea on the other. Breakfast was from 7.30am to 10.30am. It was a shame we hadn't gone in the summer when we would have been able to sit outside. The breakfast buffet had quite a choice of cooked meats and cheeses, salad items and scrambled eggs. The fresh rolls and breads were gorgeous and the wild plum jam was so moreish.

The hotel is really well situated for sightseeing and we would certainly stay there again if we go back to Istanbul. The staff were all really helpful and friendly.
