“Clean, Delicious Breakfast, and Sweet Staff”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

My friend and I stayed here in July and we had a wonderful time. Staff was sweet, friendly and accommodating. Our rooms were clean and cute, and the hotel's breakfast was delicious! For a traveler, who is on a budget, but can occasionally splurge, this is a great place to stay. I would gladly stay here again!
p.s. It's in a great location -- near all of the landmarks that you'll want to see i.e. Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc.

Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, the room was adequately sized and very clean. Great location, near the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and many restaurants. Breakfast was enjoyable and there is a lovely view from the terrace. The only negative was the noise from the staircase and other rooms which woke us up in the morning.

Pros
- Clean rooms with a bar fridge and safe
- Nice view from roof-top terrace and a peaceful courtyard
- Located on a quiet street, close to the historic sights of the Old Town
- Reasonable rates
- Very friendly and helpful staff
Cons
- Rooms are a bit small and starting to look worn
- Next to a mosque, though we never heard the morning call to prayer
- For those who have difficulty with stairs, there is no elevator
Summary: It is the friendly staff that sets Hotel Tashkonak apart (thanks Hakan!). They are very kind and do everything to make you feel at home and to ensure your visit to Istanbul is enjoyable. We definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Very friendly staff, good breakfast, great location and reasonable price. Room was typical of large European cities...not large but plenty for the two of us. TV never really worked but not a big deal. AC fine for late September but can't vouch for how it would perform in July or August. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was tight but efficient. Great reading lights in bed. Wifi was very good and every request we made was executed perfectly. We would certainly return.

We spent 3 days here. I think the hotel is too homely. Those expecting a lavish setting avoid it. However it is easy on the pocket and this show in the décor. The place is clean and nice enough but not too impressive. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel at home. The food was nice too. I would say the stay was a comfortable one.

A truly excellent find. Near to the Blue Mosque and other Sultanahmet attractions, but tucked down a back street away from the hustle and bustle. The staff were extremely friendly, room was comfortable and the breakfast was healthy and delicious. Fantastic view of the Bosphorous from the breakfast room. Highly recommended for a stay in Istanbul.
