We stayed three nights and could not fault the hotel or the staff. Lovely quiet well appointed room. Shady roof terrace, with an uninterrupted view of the Blue mosque,for delicious breakfast. Very pleasant helpful reception team who offered late checkout when we booked a shuttle for the afternoon.

We stayed 5 nights at the Sari Konak hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet, 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosq and the Aya Sofia, the Topkapi and Archeology museum, the tram and the Big Bus terminal. In short a perfect starting point for exploring Istanbul. The hotel is also located amidst excellent restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and souvenir outlets,... More

We found this hotel be to very good - nice room, free breakfast buffet, quite reasonable prices (although we did get a stay 4 pay 3 deal). The only downside is the cost of drinks at the bar on the roof terrace, which are pretty eye-watering. But I would definitely recommend for anybody who wants good value, close to the... More

The hotel is just a jewel in Istanbul's heart. I stayed in 2 rooms which were totally different but equally unique, elegant and beautiful. The location is fantastic next to all the main attractions but at the same time in a peaceful neighbourhood without hearing any cars or people passing by. The staff were excellent, always chatty and willing to... More

This is a very nice small hotel in a relatively quiet (but still very convenient) part of Sultanahmet. The staff were all extremely helpful and welcoming. My sister and I chose the least expensive type of room, and it was very small but clean. The twin beds were not overly cushy but they weren't worn or saggy and we both... More

We just got back from a vacation in Turkey, three nights of which were spent at the Sari Konak. I cannot say enough about the property -- really great for families. The room, which was modern enough (we even enjoyed the sit-down shower) had many 19th century, genuine flourishes. It really set the stage for the exploration of the great... More

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the amenities of the hotel. The breakfast was delicious, the room and ensuite bathroom were very nice, and the hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for seeing all of the historical sights in the area. The only improvement would be an inviting common area for guests to relax in... More

We stayed 4 nights at the beautiful Sari Konak Hotel. The room was very nice and comfortable. A good breakfast is served at the cozy top floor terrace, with an incredible view on the Blue Mosque. Location is perfectly close to all attractions and tram. Staff of the Hotel very nice and helpful.
