Really Loved Our Stay

There's not much more we could have asked for. This is a really great, non-chainy hotel that just does it right. The rooms/bathrooms are average sized but nicely appointed (think European hotel rooms). The food was great, including the breakfast buffet. Upon arrival, we were greeted and given an overview of the hotel and the nearby sites (which are all within a 10-20 minute walk...or even faster by tram). The staff also helped us with purchasing tickets in advance that helped us skip many of the lines that most tourists wait for hours in. I'd love to stay here if we were to come back to Istanbul.

perfect

The hotel is in a great location, walking distance from most of the major attractions. The staff at the hotel were very helpful, sitting down with us to plan what we wanted out of our visit, and offering to book on line tickets and make reservations for one of the palaces which we would probably not seen as we were not aware we needed to reserve places on a tour. . The breakfasts and restaurant were also ecxellent with a lot of choice. A very nice touch was the complimentary tea and bagels served late afternoon, very welcome after a day on our feet.

Convenient & Kind

Location was very good (sometimes heard Koran because near blue mosque, but did not care so much) , and staff was kind. When I arraived early morning before check-in time, the staff recommended if I had the breakfast here or not. It has sauna and Turkish Spa, but are open only from 4pm. I wish also AM would be open !

Feels like family

We really enjoyed the Sirkeci Konak. The staff is fantastic, the food is great and the perks are plentiful. My only recommendation might be to get a room on a higher floor since we were a bit warm on the lower level above the kitchen. It was a bit pricey for us, but I think it's comparable to other hotels in Istanbul and we were really pleased with our stay! Highly recommended.

It's Istanbul.

The Hotel was terrific. The staff was very helpful and friendly.The location in the old city was near all the sites within walking distance. We used the hotel's turkish bath, sana, and pool which was relaxing after tourning around.The free welcome drink, free water bottles in the room free lemonaid tea and snacks at 5:00PM weredelightful. The free breakfast buffet was very tasty and plentyful. All in all it was a pleasant stay at theKonak.

Wonderful Family Experience

Sirkeci Konak is a one of a kind hotel that is equally peaceful and pleasurable for kids. We spent 11 days at Sirkeci Konak in Aug 2011 and had an incredible experience. After reading all the positive reviews I felt it would be impossible for them to meet the expectations that my wife and I set, but was I wrong! They exceeded any and all expectations and made our experience in Istanbul all the more memorable. The hotel itself is beautiful, well maintained, clean and conveniently located. But what makes it special is that staff! I can't say enough about how much they went out of their way to make me and my family (especially my 3 year old son) feel welcomed and entertained. Unfortunately I cannot remember all of their names, but each and every person that worked for the hotel that we interacted with made us feel as if we were relatives visiting them after several years. I hope to one day visit Istanbul again, and if I do, no question I will return to Sirkeci Konak! Thanks to all that made of visit so wonderful.

If you are in the market for Turkish handmade jewelry, stop by and visit Mustafa at TiAmo's across the street from Sirkeci. Mustafa and his fiance are warm, welcoming and honest.

Just What We Wanted, and More!

The Sirkeci Konak lived up to the high recommendations I had been reading about. The staff was amazing and helped my dad and I out on all of our trip planning. They gave wonderful restaurant recommendations and even sent up a bottle of wine to our room after my dad told them that he liked a particular kind of wine they served at their hotel. When we went in March the road in front of the hotel was torn up---so you might want to check to see if it is completed--that was a little awkward for rolling luggage!
