The Sirkeci Konak Hotel is a gem. What makes it exceptional is the friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of the staff, particularly Pelin, the Customer Relations Manager. Pelin responded quickly and effectively to emails sent in advance of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for her, from locating a shop to booking three restaurants for dinner for us. When we met Pelin, she lived up to our expectations.
The hotel provides excellent value for money in a very central location which is ideal for both sightseeing and public transport. We did so much sightseeing that we did not have time to use all the facilities like the hammam and swimming pool. But we did avail ourselves of the free cookery lesson which was great fun - donning the 'whites' and eating our efforts in the dining room. The owner of the hotel company came and joined us afterwards and was very friendly and informative, telling us about his future ventures - another hotel due to open May 2010 which sounds just as good as the Sirkeci Konak. Another very nice feature is the complimentary apple tea and tasty items to eat every afternoon in the lounge lobby. We would certainly return and stay in this delightful boutique style hotel because it is so intimate and friendly and such good value. When we return we would probably upgrade bedrooms to get a larger bathroom. (Bedrooms and bathrooms are well equipped and provide everything you need when on a busy sightseeing holiday in such an interesting capital). Well done to all the staff at the Sirkeci Konak - a great team effort..
