My 10 day stay at Sirkeci Park Hotel was a great experience. The Hotel sits central to most historical sites in Istanbul and it is surrounded by some of the greatest eateries in the city. Rooms are small but quiet, clean and private. During our stay we took a two day trip to Cappadocia and after a day in a Cave Hotel we were looking forward to returning to our cozy rooms at Sirkeci Park. Over all what really makes this Hotel great is the Staff. In the morning from 8 to 10:30 Sirkeci Park will offer all guests a complimentary breakfast that is very diverse and satisfying. A wonderful older man will come around offering you omelets, Turkish coffee and smiles. The concierges at the hotel are very knowledgeable, proud of their city and are genuinely interested in their guests getting the most of their stay in Istanbul. The evening concierge, Musin had wonderful restaurant recommendations and gave us great local historical knowledge. On our first night Musin suggested Balkan Lokantasi Restaurant which happened to be featured on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. The food was fantastic. Our day time concierge, Recep was an expert on how to get around Istanbul and was thoughtful to what was economical logistically. He also had great suggestions for nightlife and day trips. The cleaning crew was discrete, friendly and very good at their job. The only thing that keeps this hotel from getting five stars is the limited storage for clothing and luggage in the rooms. I would definitely stay at this hotel again when I return to Istanbul.
