My wife and I arrived in Tashkonak on 15th July. Our stay was until 20th July 2011. We're very impressed by the accommodation. Initially, we booked for a standard double room and when we reached there, the receptionist told us that it will be cheaper if we pay by cash rather than using a credit card. So we paid in cash and the receptionist was kind enough to inform us that he has upgraded our room from standard to suite. Maybe it's one of their surprises for those who pay by cash.
Wow!! The suite was beautiful and comfortable to sleep. My wife loves the bathroom because it's spacious and clean. Our room was not on the same building as the receptionist area. It was located about 2 mins away. Look for Room No.32. It's beautiful and nice to sleep. The wifi is free and the best part of Tashkonak Hotel is they provide a free one way airport transfer from Istanbul Ataturk Airport to Tashkonak Hotel if you stay is longer. Be sure to ask them about airport transfer before you leave for Istanbul.
Breakfast was amazing in the terrace. Arasta Bazaar, Blue Mosque,Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace are located within mins of walking. And laundry shop is just right in front of you! Don't forget to take a sightseeing tour by a bus! Before we left for the airport, 2 cups of turkish tea were given to us on the house.
We'll definitely come back again but it will be a longer stay next time hopefully.
