“INCREDIBLY GOOD !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

There is nothing negative to write about this hotel.
Excellent location in quiet area close to tramway station, perfect amenities and outstanding service.
This hotel really is "the place to stay" in Istanbul.
I travel a lot around the world as well for business as private purposes and the "Sirkeci Konak" belongs now to my top 10 hotels in Europe.
Don't hesitate to stay there : it's wonderful !!

Room Tip: Book a "deluxe room" : they are perhaps a little bit more expensive but you certainly get...

Six of us arrived at 10.00 am. Our rooms were ready and we were offered breakfast and a welcome drink. From then until the time we left, waved off by the owner and staff we couldn't have asked for better service. All of the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us.The extras that this hotel offers ( cooking lessons, afternoon tea, wine tasting, film night etc) are truly wonderful. None of us would ever dream of staying anywhere else in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park

OH MY GOODNESS, ALL the good reviews are true. I know, unbelievable right!?

When we arrived & said we were checking in, he knew who I was. I'm chinese so it wasn't hard to figure out but still, they bothered. We arrived early in the morning & instead of telling us that our rooms were not ready (which we expected), to leave our bags & come back later, we were told to help ourselves to breakfast while our rooms were prepared.

After, breakfast, they showed us 2 rooms & told us to pick one! I mean WHAT?! Pick one. WOW! To be clear, in case this isn't common practice, it was the low season so maybe that's why they could but still, they bothered. The rooms were very nice & clean but the beds....WOW, they were so comfortable that we both didn't want to get up in the morning. Also, when we called the reception to tell them that the safe's battery needed recharging, someone came within 5 min.

The next day, when we asked the reception for tourist site advice, & Okay one of the staff spent a good 10 min telling us where to go then another gentlemen came by to give us even more advise. Everyone was just so warm & friendly. Then at breakfast, we heard some cheering. When we came around to the reception, everyone was was congratulating one of the staff & I said to them "Wow, you guys seem to be like a family" to which Okay replied "Yes we are, I know his wife, he knows my wife etc". That night, our coffees took some time because their coffee machine broke down. We didn't mind waiting to be honest because we were just having such a good time. When the coffees arrived, the waitperson was so apologetic & didn't charge us. When my friend didn't finish her coffee, which was fine by the way, he insisted that it wasn't good & brought us another one. Talk about pride in your work eh!?

On the day of our departure, since they had availability, they gave us a day room which isn't unusual for hotels to do but was unusual was there was no time limit. And like the goodness of the hotel wasn't enough up to that point, when we were leaving, the gave us going away presents. NOW, that's a first for me. At that point, I just got really emotional.

So to you readers, I'm sorry for writing such a long review but I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. And to all the staff of Sirkeci Konak, I just want to say THANK YOU for making us feel so welcome & giving us such great memories. You guys a doing a FANTASTIC job & I will tell all my friends about you. I will be back!!

PS - Yes, the location is brilliant. All the sights are withing walkinig distance but what we found really useful was that the tram station was just outside.

The Staff was incredibly helpful and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed the service we recived from them. The location of the hotel is also great. It's very close to all the major attractions and restaurants. It's also about 100 meters from a tram stop which was very useful in getting to the New section of the city.

The breakfast buffet was really good along with being open until 11AM in case you wanted to sleep late.

Our family of 5 (including 2 young children) originally booked 3 nights at Sirkeci Konak because of the reviews on tripadvisor. We stayed for 7 nights not wanting to leave. This boutique hotel really knows how to make you feel like you've been invited into their family. They are amazingly hospitable, attentive to every need, charming, and that is just their service. The hotel itself is extremely centrally located, the sheets on their beds are the softest we've had in Europe, the haman and sauna and pool are perfect for exhausted afternoons (due to the kids not lasting all day touring this beautiful and magical city) and their food is just as excellent. We dined there for dinner (compliments of the hotel... thank you!) and naturally their breakfast was vast and delicious with plenty of choices for everyone. Many many thanks to this hotel and staff for making our trip to Istanbul so memorable.

Room Tip: Originally, they booked us the family room which were 2 rooms connected. However they also showed u...

We were for 5 days in Istanbul, actually in Gülhane Park Hotel, but we went to Sirkeci Konak for having Dinner (twice). The Location is also very good and in my opinion the best location to visit Istanbul as a tourist. The Personal was friendly, always helpful and with a wonderful behavior. Thanks to the best Chef and the Dinner-Personal!!!! The Restaurant was very clean and the Meal was AWESOME GRANDIOSE!! And comparing with other restaurants was it really cheap!! We've chosen to go next time to Sirkeci Konak Hotel! Thanks again!!

I recommend the place and I will book in Sirkeci Konak Hotel next time I come to Istanbul.
