“Great staff, lovely room, excellent advice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Our stay in Istanbul was the highlight of a 6 week trip in Europe. We spent a week here in May and found the staff excellent, with friendly assistance for all of our needs and interests. The location of the hotel made it easy to see the sights in historic Sultanahmet and it was a close refuge when we needed a rest. The rooftop terrace was a wonderful place to relax with a drink in the evening as well as being a great breakfast location overlooking the Blue Mosque. Our room was large and comfortable and the hotel was very clean and well maintained.
We would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return in the future.

I stayed in this hotel with my colleague in feb 13. This hotel is located in the heart of Istanbul, the Sultanahmet area. Blue mosque, Aya Sofia, Museum, Grand Bazar, all are at a walking distance from the hotel.
It is a small, clean hotel with beautiful rooms, nicely decorated. There was a very nice sweet scented smell in the hotel.
Breakfast was good and one can order special omlette of their choice. Outside hotel there were many nice restaurant to eat turkish food. Shops in the area normally opens late in the night.
Overall it was a very pleasant experience and would like to stay in the hotel again.

This 'boutique' hotel was fabulous!! The front desk staff was friendly, professional and very helpful. The room was small but very well appointed with wonderful wooden floors and trim. Breakfast was served on the rooftop of the hotel and the view was outstanding....the Blue Mosque was the background. All of the big attractions in Istanbul were at our doorstop. Restaurants and cafes were all within walking distance. We would certainly stay at Hotel Sari Konak in the future and recommend it to our friends.

If you want to be close to all the main Istanbul attractions, this is a great location. The hotel is clean and comfortable with a lovely rooftop terrace for breakfast. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Only downside is that the old town is very touristy- if that bothers you, might not be the best location. But if you want to be centrally situated near museums and sites, this is ideal!

We could not have been happier with our choice of hotel which was recommended to us. The location is perfect for all the main tourist sights and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a beautiful roof top terrace overlooking the Blue Mosque where breakfast was served. The staff were extremely helpful and we were happy to take advantage of the taxi service too and from the airport for a reasonable charge.

Stayed at the Sari Konak for 4 nights. Perfect location for walking to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, the Grand Bazaar. Very clean. Pleasant and helpful front desk. Comfortable rooms and beds. Very nice breakfast in pleasant ground level room --- imagine in the summer it would be lovely to sit outside. Fabulous roof terrace with some of the best views of any of the Blue Mosque lit up and lots of comfortable seating to while away the afternoon, watch the sunset, listen to the oldtime market street below come to life. Lots of little nearby restaurants --- and the staff helps sort out the ones to select.
