"GUEST MEANS EVERYTHING" , I have been to many hotels across the world, and you can get be in spoilt luxury and charm but that is because you pay for the plastic smiles but the Sirkeci Konak is totally different. I have never found a hotel that is more friendly for its guests.I could rate it to No.1 ion the world for that
My son had booked it for us being in the centre of the town and no wonder the location is great, you cannot be far from Hagia Sophia or Topkapi and anywhere of significance. The staff of this privately run hotel is the most admirable staff I have ever found.
The check in was very soooth, the rooms were much smaller than we thought but my son called the manager to say that he was in an impression of what he had seen and that appeared to be a suite but the manager was so kind that he upgraded us to a very comfortable large room with all modern amenities maybe it was the suite that my son had seen, and the upgrade did not cost us anything !
I cannot forget the fact that receptionist walked with us a good 500 mtr. to bring us to the restaurant that we wanted to go only to make sure that we don't lose our way and that we don;t face a language problem. She offered us to call her back when we were done and she would come to pick us up ! I have never seen anyone do that
The rooms are modern and nice but more than anything it is the culture of the staff that impresses one !
The breakfast was very nice and sumputous although other food we could not have tried it as we are strict veggies
This place is located fantastic from all the historic sights, you are at any place if you can walk 5-10 minutes
