We just concluded a 6 night stay at the Eski Konak hotel. We are leaving with the fondest of memories. The hospitality of Sophia and her staff, the housekeeping, room comfort and location made this the ideal value hotel for a stay in beautiful Istanbul.

The Eski Konak is well placed for very convenient visits to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. There are some nice shops nearby, however the restaurant venders nearby are quite aggressive, albeit, nice. Sophia is the Hostess at the Eski Konak, and delightful to meet. She is quite helpful and will make you reservations for trips, tours or even... More

Me my wife & kid stayed Eski konak 6 nights, Location is very close to old city main attractions, clean room but small. Breakfast serve 8 to 10 on the terrace, host is very kind & with friendly attitude. A lot of restaurants nearby, prime location. Will stay here again.

Overall a great hotel, Sophia and Bayaro are really lovely people and will look after your every need. The only problems for me where the steepness of the stairs and the room was quite small but everything else was excellent. Thank you for making us welcome and hope to see you again soon xx

Sophia is a wonderful hostess and the breakfast is delicious. The breakfast is served on the open terrace where the view of the Sea of Marmara is spectacular. Comfortable and quiet room, good price, great location!!!

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
