Booked after seeing all the reviews, and it certainly came up to expectations and then exceeded them. The welcome is lovely, our room was so comfy- never had such a gorgeous and huge bed! The staff are without exception not just courteous but friendly, we felt really at home. They do everything to help you enjoy your visit, booking us a trip on the Bosphorus, we also joined one of the free walking tours- described as life on the golden horn, real life in Istanbul. Okay, who is Guest relations Attendant, lead us and couldn't have been nicer or more fun (even when my husband wandered off to find an ATM!) he showed us amazing places, really special and all laid on for free- even the pastries straight from a wood fired oven. The whole hotel is immaculate and well equipped, the swimming pool is small but so welcome after sight seeing, the rooftop restaurant has amazing views and food and isn't overpriced. I could go on and on, but essentially it's the best hotel we've ever stayed in and the location is perfect (it really is only a 10 min stroll to the major sights!) our only problem was we only had 4 nights, it will be longer next time! Thank you! Nic & Clive

If one wants a hotel near the attractions, it is highly recommended -Hagia Sophia ,grand bazaar,basilica cistern,topkapi palace, blue mosque, this all is at walking distance from the hotel.Trams and Taxis easily available to other points. With helpful staff our stay was comfortable at Sirkeci Mansion.

This was our first time in Istanbul so having the pre-arranged transport pick up at the airport was a life saver. Then as soon as we checked in, we were met with a Customer Service young man who gave us a thorough introduction & helpful suggestions on where to go, what to see, etc setting our bearings. He was great!
We had a room which overlooked the Gulhane Park (Topkaci palace gardens). The view was really beautiful. The room & bathroom is a bit cozy, but perfectly sufficient for us.
The location is so convenient to all the major sights.
Throughout our stay, the front desk service & customer service was thoroughly helpful & so friendly!

It was so good to return. This time we booked a room overlooking the topkaci palace gardens. This was delightful. We particularly liked the roof terrace and the evening meal there. However it is the helpfulness and friendliness that we remember most. Needless to say the location is excellent. We are going to return in September!

Room Tip: Deluxe room overlooking the gardens are special

If you want to pass on the large, corporate hotels; you will not be 'settling' by staying at the Sirkeci Mansion (SM). SM is centrally located...walking distance to so many of the main attractions --Hagia Sophia; Blue Mosque; Grand Bazaar and Spice Market -- great local pubs and restaurants; shops, etc. It is all here!

The price is VERY reasonable for a VERY nice hotel! Staff is friendly from the moment you walk in the door -- Damla was one of finest of hotel staff members my wife and I have ever encountered -- she greeted us; went over the map; local hot spots; we were greeted with hot tea (or wine!). The room was spacious; not over the top, but nice -- with a small pleasant balcony overlooking the shopping areas (request these rooms if you can; as I believe those on the back part of the property overlook an alley or adjacent hotels). Breakfast is very good; and a wide variety offered every day. Evening meals in the restaurant (either on the terrace if the weather is good; or inside restaurant if not so favorable) is very, very good and very, very reasonable. Daily maid service is very good. There is a spa, nice gym, VERY small indoor pool; and even a Turkish Bath (S Mansion-style). We stayed a total of four nights and I would not change a thing -- given location; price and staff -- a great place and when in Istanbul...will return here again!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the balcony rooms on the front of the hotel!

We selected this hotel based on the reviews in Trip Advisor. The hotel is very clean, has a great breakfast and if you can get rooms overlooking the park, you will be very happy.

The best part is the LOCATION of the hotel - it is walking distance to most of the Sultanahmet area attractions. Only the Chora Church is a bit of a stretch, but everything else is very close.

Also, they offer a very low cost pickup and drop from the airport (see their web site for pricing). We were a group of 6 people so would have cost us 2 taxis but for the price of one, they picked us up in a van (which looks like it can handle about 12 people).

Highly recommended.
