Found the hotel on Tripadvisor so we were full of expectations. This was no disappointment! The hotel is great and the staff is very helpful. We enjoyed all of our stay in the hotel and the diversity of Istanbul. Beds are big and nice. Everything is nicely decorated and cozy. At 16.00h it is tea time in the lobby with apple tea and local pastries on the house. In the basement is a great sauna with swimming pool and Hamam. The breakfast is very nice. For dining the young enthusiastic female manager gave us a good recommendation. The Zinham Kebab house at the bridge next to the bus station. We enjoyed it so much we went twice! Fantastic views and GREAT food. The bread is made fresh in their oven and the meat is grilled on charcoal. Not too fancy but authentic Turkish food. Not that inferior altered touristic food you can find easily everywhere.
The Konak Hotel certainly contributed to a fantastic city trip! The Turks are very nice and warm people. We will certainly go back to Istanbul and it will stay at the Konak or the new hotel which the owner plans to build next.
If you go. Enjoy. Marc NotenboomMore
