“I wouldn't stay anywhere else!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is the most friendliest place I've ever stayed. The boys make u feel so welcome and they have become friends now, they are also great with kids, my girl wouldn't go anywher else which I didn't mind either. I can't wait to go back next year and I will be going twice at least. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the food is delicious. I really miss not being there and I would definately recommend everyone to stay there.

We booked through a travel agency for 4 nights. When we arrived they gave us a very small room with no desk or table only two beds and a teeny nightstand. I had to put my things on the floor and my husband had no where to place a laptop. The shower dis not drain properly and the air conditioning could not be moderated. They have no blankets so you had to choose between freezing and cooking.
When we complained they brought in a small table having it in the room meant we could not reach or open the closet.
They say it's a few meters from Taksim, well yes about 800 m from anywhere you would want to go there.
After two days they gave us a nice large room, maybe if we had got it in the first place our feelings about the hotel would be different.

Room Tip: Make sure you see the room before they give it to you. They said ours was the best room and it was r...

Wonderful hotel. Konak has a very interesting feel to it. Color and decor selection is unique and unforgettable. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was average for a hotel and channel selection on the LCD was also average. The overall environment of the hotel is extremely appealing. Once you leave the hotel, the streets of Istanbul are bustling with adventure, food and entertainment. A few meters from Taksim Sq. During breakfast, my friend and I were approached by a member of the staff, probably middle-management, who gave us a map, and a clear, informative and detailed step-by-step description of the optimal way to take in Istanbul, depending on the amount of time we had allocated for sight-seeing. Request information, they do it well!

Will definitely return, affordability, location and atmosphere all wonderful.

We stayed here in December when it snowed at times so was freezing cold but the heating in the room kept us toasty warm. The twin beds were comfortable and had enough blankets to stay warm for the stay.

The bathroom was very well sized and even had a bath (much appreciated by my friend after a full days walking).

WiFi worked well in the room and the cleaning staff changed the linen daily.

The only downside was we had to walk to the hotel down the road for breakfast each morning (as I said it snowed occasionally while we were there).

The hotel is well placed in Sultanahmet for the mosque, Hagia, Topkapi and the Archeological Museum and the light rail provides easy access to the bus station as well as Galetta area.

There are plenty of restaurants nearby to have dinner. We had a room at the back of the hotel but as on a busy road a room overlooking the road might interfere with sleeping.

The Konak Hotel is excellently located, being only a few minutes on foot from central Taksim Square. Our room was clearn and quiet but we did not get the double bed we requested. Wifi was only available in the lobby. Breafast was fairly uninspiring. An OK choice for a short stay in Istanbul.

I stayed here while on business in Istanbul. The location is perfect - easy walk to restaurants in the Takism and Nisantasi neighbourhoods. While traffic is always crazy here, I had no problem getting in and out of the district with a pre-arranged driver and car. The hotel is very funky with a fun decor. My room was on the 7th floor at the back of the building with a small balcony. While it was quiet with respect to street noise, voices did travel from the neighbouring room. Furnishings were "sparse" as my room did not have a desk or proper table which made deskwork somewhat of a challenge. Amenities were basic and strangely no facial tissue or washcloths were provided. The rate included a breakfast buffet which was quite simple and after 6 days a bit boring. There appeared to be a number of travel groups staying so there was plenty of activity and breakfast was often busy. I did not have dinner at the hotel - but the main dining room on the lobby floor did not appear busy. Staff were certainly accommodating and helpful. I took advantage of the complimentary airport pick up which worked well - even though my flight was delayed. I would certainly consider staying here again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
