“Great Stay”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Very helpful staff. Complimentary breakfast was plentiful, there was a selection of hot food and the servers were attentive. Hotel was close to everwhere you should be in Istanbul, the blue mosque, aya sofia, etc. The free WIFI service was excellent, the courtyard is a good place to converge and have drinks with friends after a long day of sight seeing. You also get a kettle, microwave, mini fridge and a little kitchen area in your room.

Room Tip: I stayed in the secound building, it was nearer, quieter and the rooms are bigger.

Our stay at tashkonk was wonderful as the staff always had smile on their face and were so friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is close to restaurants, shopping, the blue mosqe etc. Furthermore the hotel arranged some tours for us which were wonderful where the tours were worth every penny.
The breakfast at the terrace was so nice with a remarkable view. The breakfast buffet was very nice with a great variety of food. The rooms are very clean and well sized. All in all the of undoubtedly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Istanbul.

The Hotel Tashkonak is easy to reach by Tram T1, station Sultanahmet.
The lobby is decorated very well. The rooms are clean, also the bathrooms.
The hotel staff is very obliging. They offer tea in the afternoon in the hotel lobby and give you hints for traveling in Istanbul.
Breakfast will be served at the top of the hotel with a beautiful view to the Blue Mosque and to the Marmara Sea - very nice!
The walls are very thin and you can hear everything of your neighbors. Unfortunately the hotel was booked out so in our case it was quite loud.

I recently had the chance to stay at this hotel for visiting Sultanahmet and the historical peninsula. Surprised by the hospitality and friendliness of the staff compared with the large hotels that I used to stay during business trips. There were guests who year after year stayed at this hotel.

Rooms are not big but very nicely decorated (with paintings, etc) which blends nicely with the historical neighbourhood. In addition to being friendly the staff was always polite, helpful and informative. Location of the hotel was just a walking distance to historical spots and tram.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who would like to visit major tourist spots in İstanbul.

A fine place - like family run. Warm welcome, excellent airport transfer (bang in time, and free if you stay longer). Breakfast: wide selection of local food, freshly prepared. Very helpful and friendly staff, free Internet access (wireless access and PC for public use). Large, well decorated room with SAT-TV (including CNN and BBC World) as well as refrigerator with free bottled mineral water. Efficient air conditioning and heating. Kingsize-bed with adjustable reading lamps has really been a pleasure to sleep on. Free self-service tea-preparation in the lobby and a choice of well known Istanbul guide-books to read. Roof terrace with unspoiled view of Marmara Sea, Bosporus and Blue Mosque. Quite location, however not far from main tourist attractions as well as public transport (tram, metro, ferry)
Excellent value for money.

We stayed here for 7 nights and we can recommend this hotel in every aspect - not only for first time visitors to istanbul.

For a long term stay in the heart of Istanbul, the suite was a perfect choice. Nice and warm, and very quiet, but close to Tashkonak Hotel for fine breakfasts in the panoramic terrace. Wonderful views of shipping passing through one of the busiest waterways in the world. Staff and owners always had the time to talk, and offer advice. A multi lingual English lady, Annalie, presides over the breakfast, and is able to offer good ideas for visits and tours. It was a pleasant place to while away a month, albeit during the worst snowfall in 35 years. We shall be back, God willing.
