“Simply Excellent - warm welcome, great location”
Reviewed 19 March 2010

This is a great hotel to stay at if you are looking to visit all the attractions in the old town of Istanbul. You are just around the corner from the Topkapi palace, Hagia Sophia and the Sultanhamet mosque, as well as being a stones throw from the tram line that'll take you up to Galata and the shopping at Taksim beyond. This'll also take you to Eminounou where all the buses and ferries go from.

The hotel itself is lovely, with helpful welcoming staff and an excellent 'wellness centre' where you can have a relaxing turkish bath, massage or a quick swim in the pool.

Wonderful boutique hotel with good food, spa, spacious room in a quiet neighborhood close to the Topkapi Palace, tramlines and ferry boat. Personal attention and service couldn't have been better.

Travelled with some girlfriends for a birthday trip. The hotel although in a tiny side street was actually in a great location, within walking distance of some of the main attractions. The hotel staff were so helpful, they could not do enough for us, I would recommend this hotel.

Pick up service from the airport is organized by the hotel, which is free of charge (one way) and very helpful for new arrivals.
Tramway stop is close by.
Taxis are cheap in Istanbul and easy to handle. Just make sure to have the driver switch on the taxameter. All our drivers did turn it on without any remarks from our side.
If you buy a carpet, enjoy it in a very nice shop (like Matis), take your time and do not verify its value when being back home. All shops deliver to the home adress free of charge. Be careful with the person delivering the carpet. he might offer very good price original Hereke carpets which he cannot take home for whatsoever reasons. Be sure that this is a Chinese fake product. there are not so many real Hereke silk on silk carpets available and for sure not for a cheap price.
For a full day we took a private tour guide for the old town, what was an excellent experience.

The location is in a side street, however, it is within 5-10 mins walking distance from the famous landmarks - Aya Sophya, the Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cisterns. The room is clean and well kept, has a safe for personal items. The beds are comfortable but there isn't a lot of storage spaces for clothes.

Best features of this hotel: location - walkable to many different historical areas, very safe, and close to the tram stop - Gulhane. Clean rooms, good fitness amenities, good food.

Meals: Free breakfast with lots of choices everyday - cooked breakfast as well as cereal, yogurt and typical Turkish breakfast food. Also has afternoon tea from 4-6pm. Served you great Turkish tea, with a small sandwich snack. They gave us a complimentary dinner at their Turkish restaurant - good food, reasonable prices. Unfortunately didn't get to try their fish restaurant, which is supposed to be even better!

Personal touches: The best part is they have a Guest Advisor who comes around to introduce herself to all the guests and asks if they can help you plan or make reservations. Muge Osaky worked with us and she was GREAT! She gave us fantastic suggestions for restaurants and made reservations when needed and provide us with detailed maps to get us around.

Amenities: The room has a great shower, shampoos, soaps, hairdryer - the usual. They have a fitness center downstairs that include a sauna, a small but decent swimming pool, and a steam room which is also served as an area you receive Turkish bath. We had Oktay as our masseuse - he was GREAT!

Chose because of reviews on tripadvisor and glad we did. Great location and very friendly and personal service. Great buffet breakfast with many choices. The owner was at the property a great deal of the time and was very helpful in his advice. The front desk and other staff were always helpful and accommodating.

Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Having done a miilion hotels around the world, the Sirkeci Konak stands out. Tucked away off the main road only minutes from the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque & Topkapi Palace, this medium sized hotel offers a wonderful welcome. We did a week there for business and pleasure and enjoyed every moment. Do the informal free afternoon tea and sandwiches with other guests and you'll get a great welcome & advice from Dilhan. All staff are very friendly & efficient. Both restaurants are excellent & good value. The rooms are fine and the pool/baths very good. Try cooking event in the kitchens. An excellent stay which couldn't be improved. We'd recommend to anyone on business or pleasure trips. Can't wait to go back.
