Located right behind the blue mosque, this is a easy and safe location that allows you to explore Sultanahmet on foot. We stayed three nights and really appreciated the warm and helpful staff, comfy rooms, great breakfast and the nice escape on the rooftop. I wish we could have stayed longer! For westerners the trickiest thing is being so close to the minarets when call to prayer happens in the middle of the night, but that is going to happen no matter where you stay! Internet access was also reliable, which was a plus. We got our room at a very reasonable rate - would highly recommend.

Welcoming, friendly and helpful - this meant we had a good base from which to explore Istanbul. Reception staff were always keen to help with lots of local information. We had a super room for three adults with a double single and sofa bed - it looked pristine when we return each day. Fabulous breakfasts with a good variety of dishes, served on the terrace where the views are stunning. Staff so polite and friendly. Would love to return one day!

The hotel was very clean, and relaxing and the food was fresh. The staff additionally gave us some tips and helped us in our tour. I will definitely go back if I have time.

This was not our original hotel but due to some unforeseen circumstances our travel agency made the switch to Tashkonak Hotel. In deed it was one of those last minute switches that you will never regret. I was with a group of 5, and it was all our first time to be in Istanbul, and who know's what's stored for us. Being all by ourselves gave us that little doubt that our trip will be easy. The staff of Tashkonak did just the right thing we needed. We came in early and they did not hesitate to check us in, provided us maps and things that we can do in Istanbul and how we can maximize our time. Staff are very courteous and hospitable, we never felt we're tourists, it's just like coming home to mom's house! Very close to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Tram, Shops, Restaurants, etc.. Rooms are small compared big hotels, but it's clean, good location and great staff made it special. The top floor gives you a good view of the Bosphorus river, while enjoying breakfast. Thank you Tashkonak, (Hayanati and Ismail) for our comfortable stay!
For sure we will be back in Istanbul and staying at Tashkonak. =)

We normally stay at budget hotels, so we splurged on our last few nights in Istanbul. This hotel was very nice and we appreciated having a bigger and more well appointed room. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful. Location was good as well.

Room Tip: The upper levels are quieter, but try not to be right below the roof top patio, it can be noisy with...
