“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

I found the Sirkeci Konak hotel on the web and to choose it, first I read a hundred reviews. I have no regrets about my choice. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. I had arranged a transfer from the airport to the hotel and it worked perfectly. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything that we needed. It was our 10th anniversary and they were so kind that they left a gift by the bed and some fruits and wine. All our questions were answered promptly and gently. I strongly recomend it!

This "boutique" hotel is located within walking distance of most of the historic and interesting sites in Istanbul. The service is excellent and the rooms are charming. They even offer a selection of pillows. Our room had a balcony overlooking the park. A full breakfast is included. The rooftop restaurant had a nice view of the park and the water. Staff was very attentive, there is a "Turkish Bath" in the lower level as well as a pool and exercise room. Only downside is that it's expensive.

This hotel is wonderful. WE arrived tired after touring Turkey for 2 weeks, staying in lower end hotels, and in need of some real nurturing. We got it. The room was terrific even though it was a standard room, sheets and towels, soft and lovely. The cotton robes in the room were an added bonus. The best thing was the time and attention we received from the staff, particularly the 2 concierges. A nice surprise was that the owner greeted us and talked with us several times, offering suggestions and information. There was NOTHING I cannot recommend about this hotel. We especially loved the breakfast (which is included) and the food at the seafood restaurant. This hotel deserves top marks. We want to stay there again and again.

Room Tip: we had a standard triple room. no view but great

Collected from the airport by hotel car - a very good start, much more relaxing than finding our own taxi. Hotel location is quiet, but within very easy walking distance of Tokapi Palace, Haghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.
Our room, spacious and with a very comfortable bed, overlooked Gulhane Park and our balcony gave us great views of the storks nesting in the trees opposite. The swimming pool was a bonus after a long day's sightseeing, as was the excellent massage in the spa.
Food was very good; huge choice in breakfast buffet.
All the hotel staff were, without exception, courteous and helpful. They were very keen for us to enjoy their city and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking Gulhane Park

The hotel is located as centrally as it gets and despite that in a very quite side-street, far away enough from the traffic & tram line not to hear their noise. The service is very friendly and polite. As for the rooms and the building itself - it is a small hotel with all its pros and cons coming in a single package. Design & interior are nice and feel very homely though with some aristocratic touch. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable. As for the disadvantages - the window in the standard room is too small to my liking, which caused a lack of natural light in the room, and the building is somewhat "noisy": banging doors, stomping neighbors and talking guests were sometimes heard through the walls a little bit too much. The breakfast was very good. Laptop with Internet in the hall was useful. We also appreciated free transfer from Ataturk Airport, free welcome dinner & sizable discount for cash payment. There are things at Sirkeci Konak, which are totally amazing! First, the fish restaurant Sirkeci Balikcisi is one of the best fish restaurants I have ever been to! The fish & fish soup are absolutely delicious. Second, the SPA is absolutely worth visiting! Excellent facilities - the pool, the sauna, the hamam and the gym and almost no people there at any time! That is what I call a relaxing atmosphere. I also recommend to have a massage or two! Third, terrace of the Neyzade restaurant on the roof has a great view over the city center and is very cozy. As for the restaurant itself - I liked salads and yogurt soup a lot, but meat was not very much in my taste. There are much tastier and cheaper kebabs out in the city.

Room Tip: Get a room at the 4th floor for the good view.

Returned to Istanbul after last visit in 1979. This hotel is everything it promises to be. It sure does what it says on the tin! Good surroundings, comfy beds, lovely staff and good food in the restaurant without being overpriced. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. It made our stay in Istanbul quite special.
