    What a find!!

    from

    I echo all of the sentiments left on this board about the Sari Konak.

    We stayed here recently over for 3 nights over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The staff are what makes it so special. For example, we left our sunglasses upstairs on the terrace and the manager himself came down to our room to return them to us. Whilst up on the same terrace, we met a couple that stayed there at the beginning of their trip to Turkey, and then came back for their last night. In the middle of their trip they left the SK to go traveling around the Turkish coast and encountered some issues trying to rent a car. They said that even though they had left the SK, they called the SK and they were able to arrange a car rental for them.

    Lastly the Sari Konak is extremely clean (definitely up to US standards) and a great value. We will definitely stay here again!

    Excellent place

    from

    Just spent 3 nights there and will do so in the future.

    Very nice and clean rooms, although very modern and kind of lacking in Turkish character. Loved the shower.

    The breakfast was wonderful. Lots of typical Turkish breakfast food. Liked the neighborhood and is very close to several important sights and also close to the tram line. Great vies from the roof top. Be sure to go up there at night for a view of the Blue Mosque illuminated.

    The staff was very helpful, even providing a very good free map. Not one of those cheap photo-copied ones. They even let me use their computer to check emails so I didn't have to find an internet cafe.

    Lovely Hotel

    from

    We just came back from the Sari Konak where we had a great time.

    The hotel is located near the Blue Mosque, and having stayed near Taksim Square twice before, I can safely say that this has to be the best area to stay in the city. Most of the tourist attractions are very close, the piers to the Asian side and the Bosphorus tour are 15 minutes away by foot, and at night the area is very pleasant with restaurants, open air places and a couple of bars that are opened until midnight. The wild nightlife is elsewhere, but that's just fine.

    The hotel itself is new, clean and very pleasant, Murat and the rest of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast is good and included in the room rate.

    Our only comment was about the standard room, which was too small. It is definitely a good idea to spend the extra 20 Euros for the more spacious deluxe room.

    Except for this last point, we had a very positive experience and will be happy to return.

    Splendid Sari Konak

    from

    Just back from a week at the Sari Konak and wish it had been longer. The location is excellent for tourists and the room was beautifully presented, clean and very comfortable. The staff is the most obliging I have found in years of travelling and the breakfast was delicious. If you rate discreet charm above the the ability to order a steak tartare at 3am then do consider the Sari Konak - I can't wait to go back!

    Pleasant stay

    from

    Would recommend. Great location, charming atmosphere and their delicious breakfast was one of the trip's highlights. Room was comfortable (except we were close to the lobby and was a bit loud with people coming in and out) and staff was very friendly. Can find better value places that are just as comfortable and well located, but this place still worth it.

    Very Nice

    from

    Just got back last week from Istanbul (12/01/04). This hotel was better than I expected. The room was very clean and the bathroom was nice and bright. Large for the hotel I thought. The staff is outstanding. Very kind and personable. You feel right at home. The brekfast area and breakfast were fantastic and nice to have when you are setting out for a busy day. Rooftop deck has breath taking views. The location was great. Right behind the Blue Mosque. Walking distance to the Tram.

    Lovely family run hotel

    from

    Excellent value, perfectly located family run hotel. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was fresh and delicious. Highly recommended if you wish to stay in Sultanhamet and pay around about €80 a night. They also paid for our taxi from the airport.

    Great Lodging in Sultanahmet

    from

    This small family run hotel is a delightful place to stay. The roof top terrace has great views of the Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque.

    A very special hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Sari Konak for the 2nd time last week (May 12-17 2004). This time round I had the pleasure of recommending it to 8 of my friends who fell under it's charming spell too. Umit and his staff really can't do enough to make your stay a delight.

    This visit coincided with the fact that the Eurovision Song Contest was being held in Istanbul, consequently I invited 40 guests to the roof terrace to celebrate the UK's entry... we had a brilliant time, again the staff did everything they could to make my guests feel right at home. Compliments have flowed from my friends ever since!

    So if you'd like a relaxing and friendly stay in the lovely old town (Sultanahmet)... do yourself a favour and check into the Sari Konak!

    Great Hotel

    from

    Very nice small hotel, convenient to all the sites of old Istanbul (Sultanahmet). Room fixtures and bedding etc. are not luxurious but quite pleasant and very clean. About what you would expect of a small pension type hotel. The breakfast is excellent. What makes this hotel such a great place is the staff - very accomodating and hard working. They can't do enough for you. Highly recommended.

    Both of us have been surprised about a number of things-- How little we knew about Turkey, how safe it is for visitors, how deeply entrenched it is with Roman and Greek history (and how significant is its own), how diverse is its economy, how happy the Turks seem to be and how beautiful the places we visited are. We took a long time deciding on …

    ... probably the least interesting attraction because you have to use your imagination to see the horse chariots racing around the track and the stands holding all the spectators to cheer the horse races on. The Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace are both exquisite buildings decorated with traditional iznik tiles and ancient Arabic writing. We also saw the harem in the palace, which I hadn't seen on my first trip to Istanbul. The rooms never seem to end but they were all highly ...

    I had a lovely sleep last night - the best I've had here in Istanbul. It's now 10.51am and I slept right through. I feel very refreshed for our last full day away. Better get this day started. It's late already. ... 6.30pm now and we've just got back from a very nice day. We went a different way this morning and ended up in a quieter neighbourhood just down the hill from us tucked in behind the ever-busy Istaklal Cadessi. We saw a nice place to stop ...

    First, the bad news. No singles and no gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgendered persons showed up at Cellar Masters. I became good friends with the bartender, Elvis, who hails from Bombay (Moombai). But, all was redeemed, even partially, at dinner in San Marco on Deck ...

    This area is also known for the first use of parchment - using goat skin. The Egyptians stopped the supply of papyrus ( and I can't remember why) -probably some conflict or war. Consequently they had to find another way of recording and writing - and that's how parchment was commenced.
    The Temple of Zeuss was in Pergamon however the archeologist who discovered the area took all the pieces to Berlin where it was reconstructed and is in the Museum ...
