The hotel is small, friendly and a great value. Free airport pick is available when you book from hotel's website plus discount when you pay in cash.The rooms are small and very basic but comfortable and spotless. The bathroom has only a shower stall - no tub. There is also no elevator. This hotel is close to most major attractions. Within walking distance to the major sights in Sultanahmet. Breakfast is good - lots of choices. Very quiet location. Nice artwork throughout the hotel is a plus!

We stayed here over Easter weekend, having selected it on the strength of reviews here and the fact they had availability on short notice. It has very friendly staff, a lovely rooftop terrace and a great location. But there were quite a few disappointments. The hotel capacity exceeded the dining room so on four of five mornings there was a queue waiting for a table. The hotel transfer costs to the airport are very high. One member of our group lost electricity in his room for several hours. Small irritations but in such a competitive environment as Sultanahmet, Istanbul I think you need everything or nearly everything working to get a score of four or five.

Stayed for 3 nights with my son. The location was perfect for easy walking to many sights. Close to the tram to get to sights further away. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They were upgrading the common rooms while we were there and the result is very nice. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed for six nights at this delightfully friendly hotel. it is situated within a very short distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, many many eateries and the Arasta bazzar. The hotel staff were very attentive,had a good grasp of the local area and what tourists are interested in. Special mention to Hakan and Nulan but all hotel staff endeavoured to assist us with any request. If you ask for suggestions of restuarants or places of interest trust the staff they know where to go. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The rooms were adequate in size and spotlessly clean. Beds were comfortable and the ensuite suited our needs. Breakfast was beautiful, typical turkish fare. This hotel is very well priced and in an excellent location, we think you get good value for your money at this family owned hotel. Thanks Hotel Tashkonak for a great stay.

We stayed at Tashkonak for 3 nights in April. Where to start? There is so much to say about this hotel! Tashkonak is located at walking distance from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and near the tram station which makes everything do simple!

Yes the rooms are clean, yes you are served a big breakfast in the morning, But what really makes the difference is the STAFF!!! From the bellboy, to the lady who serves breakfast to the receptionist, everyone is SO KIND. I have to mention Hakan; from the moment you walk in, he makes you feel at home, he is extremely helpful, will always greet you with a smile. He goes the extra mile to satisfy the guests.

If you are travelling to Istanbul, Tashkonak is the place to stay!!
