“Great little find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We stayed at this hotel after a very long trip from Australia. We were welcomed by lovely staff who offered complimentary drinks. Then we were informed we had been upgraded. The room overlooked a park and had views to the water. The staff were most helpful and we would recommend this little hotel for a stay in Istanbul. We came back 2 days later and stayed another 2 nights!

Sirkeci mansion is a great hotel with one of the most polite staff that I have ever experienced in Europe. We had travelled with one small baby (about 2 years) and the staff was extremely courteous and affectionate towards him. They did their best to provide as much baby food as possible and help us. The rooms were also very neat and clean and open into the main street. the hotel is walking distance from the blue mosque, haya sofia, grand bazaar, spice bazaar and there are some really good eateries nearby. There are shops in front of the hotel that give Turkish tea for one lira and provide seats to sit outside next to the road and enjoy the tea-a Turkish experience not to be missed!!! :)

Room Tip: select a high rise room to get good park views

Not only was this hotel so close to the Sultanehmet area (Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar etc), it is only a hop, skip and jump away from the Archaeological Museum. Shopping for turkish stuff is also a no problem as well as dining. 2 of the finest baklava/ turkish delight places, Hafez Mustafa and Haci Bekir are here. But the best thing are the staff at the Sirkeci- Okay, Aras, Enver, Jaida, Damla. These people are what makes this quaint boutique hotel truly enjoyable and a delight. They are a treasure trove of information, efficiency and caring not to mention full of humour and good sense. Sirkeci Mansion has a remarkable staff indeed. I would recommend Sirkeci Mansion to all of you who want a truly memorable and historical stay in Istanbul. And from my husband and myself, DAGHANG SALAMAT. Ed and Jo (May 29 to June 9, 2014)

My wife and I spent our anniversary here for a week and it was really lovely. The hotel itself is really nice, but the lovely staff are what makes the place special. Nothing is too much in making your stay perfect. The hotel is also very well placed to se all the sights and the restaurant is fantastic. I'd highly recommend.

We booked our stay at Sirkeci Mansion based on Trip Advisor Reviews and the location (centrally located ~10 min walk to the majority of central tourist attractions such as: Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern & Topkapi Palace). We were not disappointed! The staff was excellent: helpful with arranging tours and offering a few special (complimentary) activities (food tour, cooking class, etc). The rooms were clean, smart and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was fresh and tasty and offered lots of options for veg and non-veg eaters. Our airport transfer was there to meet us when we arrived at Istanbul and was prompt to get us to the hotel. Highly recommend this hotel when visiting Istanbul (especially for first time visitors who are looking to hit the main attractions in the historic district).

We had two interconnecting rooms, which was perfect for the family. Very pleasant rooms and lovely hotel generally: delicious breakfasts, and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The area is close to Hagia Sofia etc, and overlooking Gulhane Park (nice café in the park almost opposite the hotel). Highlight is the rooftop bar overlooking the city.

This is quite simply an outstanding hotel for a number of reasons:
1. Great location for all historic monuments and access to trams and Bosphorus. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from Topaki palace and the blue mosque.
2. Service - you are quite simply made to feel like royalty from the very start with a welcome drink and no hassle city orientation chat pointing out main places of interest. There is also complimentary afternoon tea and bagels in the lounge. Nothing is too much trouble and our chamber maid (Edebe) was fantastic with towel sculptures, and a present on our last day. The hotel also noticed from my wife's passport that it was her birthday while we were staying and provided a surprise cake, present and rendition of happy birthday.
3. Breakfast and catering were all excellent with a great choice of breakfast and good quality dinner.
No wonder this has been an award wining hotel for the last 7 years running. It's the little extras that make such a Big difference and will live long in our memories.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are at the back. Ask for a larger room and a higher room means you get less noise from...
