The staff are extremely friendly and polite. Nothing was to much trouble. We do not usually have dinner in the hotel we are staying in but here we dined in on two of our five nights as the food is excellent.

They have two dedicated people responsible for Guest Relations. They are always there to help with site seeing, restaurant selection etc. Afternoon tea is Included in the room rate.

My wife, son age 17 and I had a wonderful stay in this hotel. The staff is wonderful and made us feel very cared for. The welcome was the warmest we have experinced in many years of travel. Like many guests we felt part of a temporary family but not overwhelmed by the staff at any time. The owner, Faruk, gave our son an unexpected gift of a book once he discovered his interest in the classical world. This level of kindness and attention continued throughout our stay. The meal on the first night was free having booked on the internet and was some of the best we had. The room was very clean and the beds/pillows were very comfortable. The hotel is situated within a ten minute walk of all the main sites in the Sultanahmet area. All staff were very helpful with booking restaurants, making phone calls for us, and advising on travelling around the city.
Great breakfasts. Pick up from airport all organised for us. Good turkish steam room too. We would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel. Our stay in this hotel helped make our stay in this city even better then we had expected.

We just returned from spending 6 nights at Sirkeci Konak Hotel. I booked based upon the reviews in Trip Advisor. The rooms themselves are not very special.But its as if the hotel took a survey of tourists and asked them what they mosted wanted in a hotel and then did it. For example, they charge the same for an airport transfer as a cab cost, someone always available to answer your questions, free wi-fi that actually works, the free afternoon tea, great breakfast included, 11% discount for paying cash, free airport transfer and dinner if you book for 3 nights or more. super clean, and wonderful beds.

I had requested a deluxe room at booking but one was not available. Upon our arrival we were told that one had become available. I was shown both the deluxe and the regular room. The deluxe would be about $1000 more so I stuck with the regular one figuring that we wouldn't be spending too much time in the room. We stayed in room 1206 which was very nice except that the street below was very noisey.

I would without a doubt stay there again. It made us feel like we had family in Istanbul that was watching out for us and who really cared how our vacation was going. We thought that the neighborhood was very safe.

This hotel is the best one we have stayed in anywhere as a family. The staff could not have been more helpful in making our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. The place has been maintained in A1 condition throughout. The restaurants were very good with enough selection for all the family. Any information we needed on Istanbul was easily at hand with friendly staff who could help with any questions. The highlight of the day for the children was the afternoon tea. A great place that we will definately use again.

A great hotel, well located with excellent staff. Treated my husband to Fizz, cake and a gift for his birthday. Thanks for making our weekend extra special. Would recommend highly.

Taking the recommendations from Trip Advisor, we booked 3 nights at the Sirkeci Konak and we could not have been more pleased. This boutique hotel is actually larger than it seems at first but is still quite intimate and homey. The staff tries hard to please you. The standard double room was quite comfortable with a great bed - my wife is not easy to please when it comes to hotel beds but she slept like a baby. The European breakfast was excellent and I soon became addicted to the fresh yogurt with honey from the standing honeycomb! We ate at both restaurants and found them both excellent. In fact the fish we had at the hotel restaurant was every bit as good as that at the specialty seafood restaurant. The extra amenities added excellent value to a reasonable hotel, including free wi-fi, turkish bath, pool & sauna, tea time, complimentary cooking lessons followed by a light meal, complimentary dinner and airport transfer. And the 11% cash discount saved us $100! And with the location, you really can walk all over the old town, with Tapkapi, the Blue Mosque, and Ayia Sofia right up the street.

We hit Istanbul at the end of a two week itinerary-jammed cruise and it was a welcome respite. An example of the staff going above and beyond came when, after two days of rain, my jeans had become water-logged and muddy. The laundry bag states very clearly that there is no service on Sundays but we were leaving on Monday so I inquired about a laundromat in the neighborhood. The manager told me not to worry and to bring him the jeans. Literally two hours later my jeans were delivered back to my room washed and pressed. The only down side to the location is the appearance of the street which seems a bit sketchy but it actually quite safe at any hour.

If we find ourselves back in Istanbul, we will definitely be staying at Sirkeci Konak.

As you can see from all of us reviewers, this hotel is something special, from room comfort to food to location within walking distance of a number of Istanbul attractions. But the most noted quality is the friendliness of the staff. Whenever you enter the lobby they are there to assist. I remember particularly Palen, the young lady, and her newly appointed cohort who had just transferred from the restaurant area. Both of these ladies were helpful at all times. I keep kicking myself for not taking a picture as we departed: They were all lined up at the door, even the hotel owner, to see us off in a cab to the airport. This is Turkish hospitality at its most memorable.
