My first breakfast at home after four nights at this hotel was rather a comedown as I'd rather got used to eating my yoghurt, honey and walnuts whilst admiring the blue Mosque on one side, Aghia Sophia on the other and the Sea of Marmara sparkling in front of me. The location is perfect as it's only a walk away from all the main sights and also close to the trams and train station. You'll also be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out as this area is jam packed with good restaurants and bars. The room we had was on the first floor facing the street so was a little noisy but it it was perfectly comfortable. the staff are very helpful and willing to give you any advie or recommendations you might need. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if only to sit on the rooftop terrace and admire the view.

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the Sari Konek. After reviewing many, many Istanbul hotel reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay at the Sari Konek. The staff at the hotel was extremely helpful, pre-trip, responding to my questions regarding transfers, city tours and restaurants, etc. and was just as helpful after our arrival.

The hotel was very clean, rooms were large and it had a perfect location - all major attractions were within walking distance. Breakfast and evening cocktails on the roof terrace were a delight. Hussan even offered me a cover-up one evening after the sun went down--that is service!

When we return to Istanbul, we will definitely stay at the Sari Konak. In addition, there is a wonderful restaurant just across the street called "Dubb Ethnic" where the food was wonderful, prices reasonable and the service was excellent.

All in all, a great corner of the Old City to be based out of during a visit to istanbul.

My wife and I stayed at the Sari Konak in August 2012 and would highly recommend this gem of a hotel in Istanbul. Excellent location in the central Sultanahmet area very near the Blue Mosque and great restaurants nearby. Within walking distance to all major attractions and facilities.
Our stay was made very pleasurable by the wonderful and helpful service provided by the friendly & professional staff. Excellent breakfast with a stunning views overlooking the sea of Marmara, Blue Mosque and Palace. Highly recommended hotel for all it's facilities, accommodation, location, overall value with superb quality & service.
We would not hesitate to rebook The Sari Konak on a return visit to Istanbul which is certainly high on our list as one of the greatest and friendliest cities we have had the pleasure of visiting.

This was an excellent hotel to stay in for our first trip to the beautiful city of istanbul. It was beautifully decorated, lovely large rooms and excellent service. it was also just 5 mins walk to the Blue Mosque and other lovely sight seeing attractions. And very well connected to public transport to see farther flung parts of the city.

The location was perfect for walking to most every sight. Hanging out at night and soaking up the local fun The staff was friendly and helpful in lining up day trips or entertainment. We loved sitting on the terrace eating breakfast looking @ the beautiful Sea of Marmara, the Blue Mosque, and Topkapi palace outline. Great place for a glass of wine @ sunset too!

We recently stayed at the hotel and our visit was made memorable by the delightful staff, particularly Hassan who is entertaining, knowledgeable and extremely professional. While the accommodation is excellent, it was the personal touch that made our stay such a pleasure.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in July. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The breakfast on the terrace with views of the old town was a delight. The hotel is in a good location within the old town and seemed to be very good value compared to others.
