I visited Tashkonak hotel for 4 days and i can say that my stay there was so pleasant and cosy. This is small, lovely hotel with great staff. Location is good for tourism visitors.Hotel is close to historical sides. (Area-Sultanahmet) Tashkonak has very beutifull garden, in the evenings me and my friends were sitting there and having Tea.
So, i reccomend this hotel!!! I liked Tashkonak.

Best Regards and good luck to you all!!!!!!

Our stay at Tashkonak was very pleasant. The hotel was within easy walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, the underground Cistern and also the trams. Although the room I shared with my friend (twin bed) was small, we managed. The room shared by two of my friends was larger as it had a single bed, double bed and a sofa!
The staff were very helpful and also gave us good advice.
The buffet breakfast had something for everyone, do not expect a full English after all you are in Turkey!
The views from the rooftop terrace were a surprise, especially at night, the Blue Mosque looked like a fairy castle, and the Marmara Sea on the other side.
We all would recommend this hotel, as it was also within character and very comfortable, cannot fault it.

the location in the old town of Istanbul is ideal. The value quality/price is excellent. The hotel is very nice and the staff is really taking good care of you. In the morning you can have have a nice buffet at the top floor looking the panamax crossing the bosphorus. You have so many things to see and visit in Istanbul that one week is not enough. The transport organization is great and you can easily and safely move with the bus, the tramway and the ferry. It is one of the most beautiful city in the world.

Room Tip: Probably rooms at the back side.

My stay at TashKonak was very pleasant. The hotel is situated in one of the greatest areas in Istanbul, only a few minutes walk away from Sultanahment mosque and Hagia Sofia, the scenery took my breath away, however the walk to the main sights is up a hill, so it may not be for everyone. The hotel itself is hidden in the streets of Sultanahmet in a very quiet area, which is great for a family vacation. The building itself is authentic to the city and the interior very much reflects this with its decor. My room was slightly small, however I did have the pleasure of drinking coffee on the balcony overlooking the hotels' garden and great view. The staff were absolutely fab! Giving us advice on locations to visit and directions on how to get there, they even gave us umbrellas when it rained! I would recommend TashKonak to anyone who is looking for a quiet, calm location to explore the city. We thank TashKonak for making our vacation to Istanbul a great experience.

This smal familary run hotel is situated close to the main sights Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace in the Sultanahmed district. From here you can reach all other places easily by public transportation (Istanbul card) even to the ferries to Princes Islands or the Asian side.
The breakfast buffet is rich with continental and turkish food and is served at the roof terrace with a wonderful view over Marmara Sea and Asia.The staff is very helpful and polite. The rooms are a bit small but clean and quiet Aircondition, TV and refrigerator.
The price was ok for low season.

This is a nice small hotel just 5 minutes walk from Blue Mosque and main square of Istanbul,
They offer a free one way transfer which i recommend to use for the way to hotel as even local taxi is not very good in finding places in a small streets of old town. The hotel is in the old building as majority of hotels in that area so do not expecting rooms as in moders european hotels. It is small room with small waredrobe but pretty big bathroom ( shower cabin) very clean and nicely decorated. Very good heating system. TV channels are limited and not a good quality. There is a safe in teh room and a fridge which you can use. Mineral water in the room for teh same price as on teh street. breakfast is typically turkish, which is diferent to european one a lot of vegetables and bread, but nothing from English breakfast except eggs. Hotel has a lovely roof terrace where breakfast is served and you can enjoy some view on Bosphorus and a bit of blue Mosque.

Room Tip: Ask for room with garden view as there is a small mosque just next to hotel and with rooms on the st...
