“Sirkeci Konak : Türkish delight in Istanbul -”
Reviewed 7 March 2010

Situed in the old historical centre, Sirkeci Konak is wonderfully situated to welcome Istanbul visitors. The personal is very warm and welcoming, and will help you to discover the treasures of the town.
The rooms are very clean and each carry a box of Türkish delight, if necessary refilled on a daily basis. In the late afternoon the hotel also offers drinks and sandwiches to the guest, ideal as a moment for rest after trotting the town.
The hotel also has a restaurant very good restaurant Neyzade. As an cocktail for children, our 12-year old son can strongly recommend the Lucky Luke, wich does not only carry three layered colors but which also tastes delightly.
Türkish hospitaly certainly is at the core of the heart of the Sirkeci Konak.

Stayed February 2010, travelled with family

This hotel met our expectations after reading reviews, yes you can believe the reviews. The staff, especially the guest relations and reception area people were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The afternoon tea and what to do briefing were nice touches. The rooms are not generous(we had superior room which we recommend) but adequate and smart and everything you expect is there ie tea/coffee facilities, bath robes, pillow menu. Location is excellent for sightseeing, very close to main places of interest and Bosphorus ferries. The food in the hotel restaurant was good and better value than other places we tried(eg Amendros) and it was also good in the family restaurant. If you book through the hotel website, the discount for cash, discount for family restaurant, reduced transfer and dinner offer made it better value for money. We had a massage in the hotels spa area which was excellent and very relaxing.

We took the Airport shuttle bus back to the airport for 10 Euros each(stall outside Haghia Sophia) which was excellent value.

very good service, good customer relations to offer an overview and directions. Great buffet breakfast, the best croissants outside France. Lovely comfortable bed, but very small bathroom. Good central location, easy to walk to main sights. Recommended!

We chose this hotel based on the photographs as we wanted an upscale, boutique hotel with a turkish flair. We were not disappointed. This hotel compares to Prague's Golden Well.

The room was beautifully decorated with a well appointed bath - the shower was to die for! Gorgeous common areas, a lovely view of the palace gardens, and exceptional hotel staff made for a perfect stay. Afternoon tea and visits with the hotel owner were a pleasant addition.

Do not overlook the hotel restaurant for dinner! The Eggplant Pure Kebab, Baked Lamb Leg, and Keskhul were all excellent - our favorite meal in Istanbul.

This hotel is the TripAdvisor king! They really know how to get all the reviews in here. We LOVED the staff, this is by the far the best part of the hotel and if we could transport these people and their lovely service to another building it would be a PERFECT combination.

I will rate this hotel based on "value for money". At 170 Euro per night, this hotel falls WAY below expectations. The rooms are TINY, with low ceilings and poor ventilation. There are limited amenities and hotel comes off with a "best western" type of feel. Does not feel like a luxury hotel at all. The bathrooms are nicely appointed but it does not offset the drab rooms. The location is good, in the heart of Sultanmet, but unless all you want to do is historical site seeing, you may be better off in a different area of istanbul. I would not visit this hotel ever again.

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.
