A great place in Istanbul. It's Surrounded by restaurants and only a short walk to the blue mosque and other attractions. Sofia is a lovely and accommodating host. We had an early start one day and she got up early to have breakfast ready by 6am for us. The room wasn't modern but was clean and nicely presented. I recommend... More

We were short term looking for a stay in Istanbul for three days and got Eski Konak recommended. The hotel serves all needs of a short stay in Istanbul. If you are looking for luxury, then you are wrong, but value for money is extraordinary. The location is within 5 minutes of blue mosque, hagia sophia and metro station to... More

This hotel is a wonderful value. It's in a great location, within a five minute walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cistern, the Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace, the metro stop, and other attractions. The rooms are small and plain, but always kept clean, and nicely appointed. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. Also, the hotel is... More

First, Sofia, our host, was one of the nicest people I think I've ever met. She was just absolutely wonderful in meeting our every request and full of information about what we might do on our short stay.

We stayed five nights, two nights in room 201 and three nights in the ground floor room. Firstly, Sofia, Dinar (?), and the other staff are marvelous. So warm and loving.

I made a reservation for 5 nights at this hotel and was very pleased by their service. The rooms are not very large, but I was only one person and spent most of my day outside exploring the city, so I didn't need much beyond sleep & showering. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, including the owner who gave... More
