Recent guest reviews

After 6 night, 5 rooms with my family. The hotel is near to blue mosque and aya Sophia and other museums. the hotel is mostly basic good for low budget couples but for sure they have bigger rooms. the breakfast should be upgraded it's the same daily. the staff is great helping all time with different stuff especially Mustafa my advice: don't choose the standard room, you can't move inside. be aware of fraud resturants in sultanhmet especially the one with no writing on it.

Modest room, excellent value, excellent location, the most helpful and efficient desk clerk imaginable.we named him TopGun, since we could not quite catch his Turkish name) Nice roof garden with a great view, very good breakfast.Walking distance to many top spots such as Haig Sofia.We would seek this small boutique hotel out again and recommend it without hesitation, most especially for the terrific price and attentive service.

Charming hotel perfectly located within a 5 minute walk of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The rooftop terrace was not technically open for service when we were there (end of March), however we were free to go up there with our own bottle of wine and enjoy the views of the Bosphorus, Golden Horn and the domed roof and minarets of the Blue Mosque. It was a wonderful place to relax at the end of the day. Oktay and Sardar, the front desk people, were so helpful in arranging taxi transportation from and to the airport. Just email them ahead of your trip and they will make the arrangements (we flew into Ataturk and flew out of Sabiha Gokcen). When we arrived, Oktay arranged a guide to meet us at the hotel; he spoke English, was knowledgeable, navigated getting us tickets so we were able to see Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, the cistern, grand bazaar and spice bazaar in a very full afternoon/early evening (and we didn't feel cheated on time at any of the locations, although I could have stayed longer at the Blue Mosque). The room was small by American standards, but very comfortable with an ensuite bathroom. The breakfast was delicious with a wonderful assortment of fruit, eggs, cheese, salami, yogurt with fresh fruit sauces. Nurgul (my American computer doesn't have the phonetic markings) was the one who served breakfast so graciously and made sure we had plenty. The price included breakfast and was very reasonable. This hotel was recommended to us by a friend who has stayed there frequently and I have to say it did not disappoint; it was a jewel!

This was my first trip to Istanbul. so af first it was difficult to choose the location for my accomodation. it you are the person who likes historical places such as mosques and museums, I would highly recommend you to stay around this area. it makes you be easy to get to the blue mosque and AYA sophia! Even though this hotel was not a big and fancy one, they offer cozy and hearty feeling to visiters and customers. all staffs I'd met were so friendly and kind and the breakfast restaurant was also nice and food was adequate.

I was very pleased with my seven night stay at Hotel Sari Konak. I was traveling solo so I booked the cheapest room available. I stayed in room 102, although a little small, it had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. It was very clean, had a room safe, nice bathroom, good wifi, and windows that opened to the cobblestone street below. The staff was friendly and very helpful, answering questions, offering good advice, and arranging tours and airport transportation. The included breakfast was very good, I left full every morning. I looked forward to Nurgul's genuine smile every morning! The location was great! The hotel and surrounding area was clean and felt very safe. There are many restaurants, shops and convenient stores near the hotel It is a very short walk to the Blue Mosque and hippodrome, Hagia Sofhia, Topkapi Palace, and the Basilica Cistern. The Grand Bazaar, Spice Market and Galata Bridge were easy walks. This is a perfect choice for a budget hotel in a great location. When I return, I will be staying here again.

Very nice comfortable hotel for easy walk and visit to the old city of Istanbul. Staff extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Rooms basic but clean and comfortable and have nice character. Beds comfortable and offer nice sleep. Basic breakfast offered. Price is right. No hesitation in booking for budget stay.

I booked 2 rooms & spent 4 nights in this hotel. It was very cosy. The services provided were excellent. We were grateful for the guidance provided by Mr Okie Dokie & Mr Mustafa. They were kind to draw us maps & gave specific direction to shops & restaurants nearby. They made us really felt welcomed. Ms Nurgul was like a superwoman. She prepared breakfast and cleaned our rooms. She even remembered our preferences for hot drinks. That was really cool! The free WiFi signal was stable for us to use our mobile devices. The hotel is located within walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and other attractions. There are many restaurants and shops selling souvenirs around the area too.

Sari Konak is a very comfortable, mid-range hotel within easy walking distance of all the major sights in Istanbul, as well as lots of restaurants. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a good range of foods for breakfast and the airport transfers worked well. Most importantly, for me, the respond rapidly and clearly to e-mails.

We stayed with Kale Konak twice in January 2017 on our way in and out of Istanbul. The staff are amazing and treat you like family. Their suggestions for restaurants were excellent and they helped arrange a short notice food tour with very little notice.our boys loved it here and are still talking about it now. This is a great place to be based if you visit Sultanahmet. We felt very safe as a family here and in Sultanahmet in general. It is a great time to visit - you will have the place to yourself.

What a great find the Hotel Sari Konak was for us. So well situated in the heart of old town Istanbul. Within relatively easy walking distance from many of the main tourist attractions. Loads of restaurants and shops nearby, selling rugs, lamps, ceramics and general souvenirs. The hotel is very well-run, and neat and clean. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They arranged our shuttle service from the airport to the Hotel, as well as our return trip, and it ran like clockwork. Definitely worth the extra money. The Turkish breakfast's (cereal, fruit, cheese's, bread, boiled eggs, olives, tomato's) certainly set us up for our busy day's ahead. We loved our stay and would not hesitate to return to the same Hotel should we visit Istanbul again.
