“Lovely staff made my 40th Birthday really special”
Reviewed 1 March 2010

We chose this hotel after reading other reviews on the site and were not disappointed. The staff really go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible. I was especially touched that the staff gave me a cake, and a present, and sang happy birthday - and we both enjoyed the Friday cookery lesson. The location is great for tourist "must-sees" and though it's a bit of a schlep from the lively nightlife, we quite enjoyed our dawn stagger back across the river after celebrating my birthday! (Club Indigo was fab). I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to be well cared for while staying in the centre of town.

From the warm welcome at our arrival; to the helpful advice and booking of places to visit that would suit us best; to the thoughtfulness and friendliness of the staff, the Sirkeci Konak Hotel helped make our vist to Istanbul a straight 10 out of 10.

In addition of being well located – near the major historical sites, bazaars, and good restaurants; being clean; having an excellent breakfast buffet; having free tea and tea sandwiches for guests at tea time; and having a roof top terrace, the Sirkeci Konak Hotel has a superb staff who provide personalized attention to its guests. My husband appreciated having the comforts of home at the hotel: an orthopedic pillow, extra towels, and the “right” temperature in the room. The hotel staff provided every single thing my husband asked for promptly and with a smile. They even went as far as to let him come to breakfast 20 minutes early the day of our departure because he asked for it.
We went away to Izmir and Ephesus for three days and when we returned to the Sirkeci Konak Hotel we received a warm welcome. We enjoyed the cooking class experience the hotel provided in its kitchen and the opportunity to interact with other hotel guests while we ate the food we had prepared. One couple told us that they came to Istanbul to celebrate their anniversary and the hotel staff surprised them with a cake to celebrate the occasion.
We want to thank Mr. Faruk Boyaci, the hotel chairman, for talking to us at breakfast one morning and giving us the Turkish Table cooking book to take home with us after I expressed interest in cooking. Also, we want to thank the entire staff for being so competent, hospitable and professional. Finally, we want to thank the staff for very graciously saying good-by to us with a nicely gift-wrapped box of Turkish Delight.
We were very pleased we stayed at the Sirkeci Konak Hotel; it made our vacation in Istanbul a real treat!

We made reservations at the Erboy but moved to the Konak because of renovations. Location is wonderful, a few steps from the Gulhane tram (but no tram noise) and from most of the sights. The alley is a little seedy with store front auto supply shops and some street noise. Your choice of tourist restaurants and local eateries within steps. The staff was marvelous. Available but not pushy. The room was fine, but not exceptional. Breakfast was the best we had in 3 weeks of travelling. Afternoon tea was a delight.

Me and my partner went to Istanbul for one week. We stayed at the Sirkeci Konak. From the first moment, we stepped inside, till the last second it was perfect. Very kind people, very nice rooms, facilities and food (every day heavenly breakfast). It was really very nice to stay in this hotel. Even the owner had a glass of thee with us at our last day. Finally when we were leaving al the personal came outside to say us goodbye. The hotels impression was above our expectations. I can recommend this hotel to everyone.

We stayed at the Sirkeci Konak for 4 nights in Feb 2010 and cannot praise it highly enough. As seasoned European city stay travellers, the hotel hit all the right notes: newly-refurbished; very good location (close enough to the Old City, but not right in it); excellent decor (modern with a hint of local); really good facilities for a city hotel (plunge pool, small gym, sauna). But the stand-out is definitely the customer service: the staff are so friendly and helpful. From the afternoon tea on arrival to dealing with each and every request quickly and efficiently. They even arranged flowers, a cake and gift for my wife, as we arrived on her birthday. Yes, the rooms are not huge, but it is a city centre hotel. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
