Ciao a tutti! Me, my husband, my parents in law and my sister in law were in Istanbul in April 2014 and stayed in Sirkeci Mansion. This was not our first time in Istanbul but I can say that we all had an amazing experience in Sirkeci Mansion.The staff is amazing, friendly, well prepared, well organized and super professional as well! They always have a smile on their faces, which it is hard to find nowadays. My husband and I reached the hotel around 8 o'clock in the morning and not only they offered us a complementary breakfast but they also upgraded our room to the best room of the entire hotel (Hagia Sofia, park and Blu mosque view) and allowed us to enter the room around 1 in the afternoon. After our delicious breakfast we had a walk, the weather was very good and then we saw our room. It was such a beautiful and big room that we didn't leave it until the evening. We also had a very big (almost terrace) balcony with tables and chairs: heaven! We didn't have to pay anything extra for the beautiful room they kindly gave us.
My parents in law and my sister in law also had 2 good rooms. My parents in law had also a balcony and the same view we had but from a different corner. The breakfast was rich and various. Some of the stuff were there everyday (different bread, pastries, milk, jams, cereals, eggs, juices, milk, tea, coffee, honey, nuts, fruit, yogurt etc) but some cooked meals changed day after day and they were all delicious and made with fresh ingredients. The staff that served us during the breakfast time, even though there were many guests, they took care of everything and always made sure our cups were full with tea or coffee. The hotel was very clean and very peaceful at night, so we slept really well and we woke up in the morning with the sound of the birds that lived in the park in front of us. The location couldn't be a better one. 3 minutes walk from Hagia Sofia and all the historical things around it. One day I called the reception and I asked for some floss, they finished it and they apologized so many times saying they would bought it for us the next day. I thought they would forget but they surprised me and the next day I found in my bathroom 2 boxes of floss. Whenever I needed something, they would bring it to me in maximum 2 minutes! Very quick and very attentive! The bathroom we had was big and had a shower and a big bath tub with massage. Also the standard rooms that my relatives were in, had medium size, comfortable and clean bathrooms. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone. The decoration of the hotel was very nice and the environment and the reception area very welcoming. Thank you to all the Sirkeci Mansions' stuff!!! S. Boschetti
