“A great hotel that meets all your needs”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

I work and live in Ankara, but I visit Istanbul often (once or twice a month). This hotel has become my favorite place to stay. It's cozy and comfortable, and it's location is great. I keep coming back because the staff is good-natured and professional. They are eager to provide assistance and they know the city. Even though it's behind the Blue Mosque, the hotel is located in a quiet residential area. There many inexpensive and delicious restaurants near (try Tamara for the fish and Doy Doy for shish kebabs). The hotel is about 10 minutes from the Sultanahmet stop on the tram. All in all, Tashkonak is one of those dependable and solid hotels that adds to the charm of Istanbul.

You take your chances here with a mixed bag as regards quality of rooms. The staff were happy and friendly and the breakfast room at the top bright and cheery with a good selection of eats.
Would I stay again?....probably not.

Room Tip: Avoid the basement and front of hotel.

We stayed here for our trip to Istanbul, we thought that a nice located hotel in the old city was convenient, and so it was! The prices are good, the morning breakfast as well, the rooms were cleaned, and the staff very very friendly and helpful! We could store our bags while we went to the Asia side, and it was just beautiful to wake up seeing the Mediterranean sea and still enjoy it while having breakfast. So if you dont wanna spend a crazy amount of money deff go for it! Its so close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, as well as restaurants where u can eat at night :)

This was an incredible hotel! The staff was excellent: helping with bags, serving us tea when we sat in the lobby, getting us anything we needed. The accomodations were small but fabulous. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were clean and adequate. Our travel agent said these hotels used to be homes that were changed into hotels and they absolutely have that charm. This is an excellent place to stay. And it was only a few blocks away from great restaurants and the Arasta Bazaar, which was modest, beautiful and hassle free compared to the Grand Bazaar. I highly recommend the Tashkonak Hotel.

We booked Tashkonak after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel was fine. The place had this homely aura around it and it was really nice to spend our 4 nights here in comfort and felling like a part of Istanbul. The staff made sure that we were comfortable and I will give full points for hospitality. The hotel décor was amazing; it was so unique and different. The room was clean like the rest of the hotel. The food was impressive as it was healthy and well presented.

We were really happy with the service we received at Tashkonak Hotel. They accomodated us at the last minute, and were very happy to give us plenty of helpful tourist tips. It is located right near the Blue Mosque, close to all the most important attractions in Istanbul. I would highly reccommend it!

Room Tip: There are two buildings, but only one has the breakfast room in it. I would try to choose this one...

We stayed here for three nights in Feb. Three adults stayed in one of the suites. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. Anything we needed help with was attended to immediately. Breakfast was very good and the ladies working there were friendly and good cooks. The location is an easy walk to Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. When back in Istanbul I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want more room get a suite.
