“Very comfortable and friendly hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

It's not the rooms, which are quite tight...although they are kept spotlessly clean and everything works. It's not the location (which 50m from Gulhane tram station we found tremendously convenient for almost everything), it's not the restaurants in the hotel, which frankly we didnt try a lot because we had better recommendations elsewhere - although the breakfast buffet was very good we felt, it genuinely is the very friendly and helpful front desk and concierge service that makes this hotel a 5 star review. We were travelling in a group of 7 and the front desk lent us an akbil for the week which was very helpful for transport. We did check prices for our party with other comparable hotels and the Sirkeci Konak was very competitive.. Recommended

I picked this hotel based on the reviews and ranking on tripadvisor. I found it quite difficult to believe how highly ranked it was.

However, I have just returned from a 9 night stay and can say without a doubt it is one of the most welcome places i have felt in my life. People might not give top marks for the food or rooms, but what makes the place exceptional is the staff. Everything was carried out in a very efficient, very friendly way and at the end I felt they had gone beyond even high expectations. We were even given a spare room after we checked out since our flight home left at midnight.

Would i stay here again, undoubtebly. Would i recommend it as a place to stay? I was so impressed by the staff that I almost dont want to recommend it for fear prices go up or it gets booked out consistently.

All the high praises are spot on!

We had a truly wonderful couple of days at Sirkeci Konak en route home to South Africa from the USA. It made for the perfect pit-stop and broke the journey to make it bearable. The hotel facilities and staff, as well as meals etc all go beyond what we expected. The indoor pool and in-house Turkish baths were absolutely brilliant, and a great way to finish the day. It is also about as well situated as can be, with an abundance of restaurants close by, and the tram to everything literally outside the front door. All in all, if you are making Istanbul a stop over, you will not be sorry if you choose to stay at Sirkeci Konak

I probably can't say much more than has already been said about this lovely little hotel. In my opionion it's the staff that make this an excellent hotel. They go above & beyond to help, everyone is friendly & chatty and very knowledgable. The hotel has thought of everything you might need from umberellas in the lobby area to robes & slippers to use in the rooms. I hope to go back to Istanbul one day and if I do then I will always stay here.

Was there for a 10 night stay through Xmas and NY's. Staff were extremely helpful, the room was nice and clean, the location was excellent, just steps from the light rail. Close to the sites.

Everything was perfect for the price. I'd challenge the 5 star hotels to provide this level of comfort and service.
