Location, Service, Attitude: all that we required and got. We shall recommend it to our friends and, if we return to Istanbul, will most certainly stay here. A BIG thank you to every one who made this such a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Our allocated room was not what we expected. We advised the management who gave us a few choices wit...

This hotel has all the elements - trained and knowledgeable staff, outstanding location (walking distance to all the "must see's" for the first time visitor to Instanbul), great amenities including a hearty and tasty breakfast, sightseeing tips, arrangements for airport travel, etc. And, the staff, while always professional, are engaging and have a sense of humor. We enjoyed becoming a part of the "neighbourhood" during our 7 day stay there (5 days on the front end, then another two days after we spent a week touring other areas of Turkey)

Room Tip: Higher floors give a great view of the park. However, both our rooms (2nd floor and top floor) were...

My wife and I stayed at the Sirkeci following a cruise to Istanbul. Whilst I had the address printed, and provided it to the taxi driver, he had some considerable difficulty in locating the place! After reaching the general area, he asked someone at every street corner for directions! Anyway, we saw a lot of the smaller back streets, but eventually arrived.

The staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. Registration took place in the lounge, rather that at reception, with welcome drinks being presented to us whilst this was going on.

Our room was a deluxe suite on a high floor, overlooking the adjacent park - perfect for the sunsets. The room was very spacious, but with a relatively small bathroom, but still adequate.

The location of the hotel was excellent for walking to the major sights, and for picking up a tram if walking was too much. The hotel also offered a private walking tour for a few hours, which we joined and enjoyed.

Breakfast was a buffet affair, and whilst adequate, was uninspiring. Dinner was also available in the dining room, but seemed to be run as a separate restaurant, though this didn't impact on hotel guests, as long as you had a reservation. It seemed very popular.

The staff make this hotel, and they do go out of their way to assist guests, and come over as genuinely friendly people. A free transfer back to the airport was offered for our 4-night booking, and this proved nearly to be a disaster, though not of the hotel's doing. Firstly, they appeared to be let down by their limousine service, and this was compounded by an overturned vehicle blocking the main route, and creating total traffic chaos. Anyway, our eventual taxi driver drove with the verve of the best Grand Prix drivers, and got us to the airport 45 minutes before departure!

This hotel was recommended by a friend and we shall be recommending it from now onwards! Everyone of the staff, chambermaids, porters, waiters and receptionists, were exceptionally kind, friendly, courteous and most helpful. A special mention to Okay, one of the managers, for all his sound advice, assistance in all matters and for his quiet charm and faultless English.The room was spotless with lovely bathroom and overlooked the Gulhane Park next to the Topkapi Place) ideal for walkers and joggers, entrance 5 minutes away; the breakfast was self-service buffet which catered for all tastes and the dining-room was pleasant and light. The hotel had a lovely atmosphere and was family-orientated too and has a degree of privacy from the busy outside world! The small bar area had a nice relaxed feel to it for an evening drink before dinner in the hotel or elsewhere. The chef does a delectable red pepper and olive pate as an appetizer. The street is quiet as it's a no-through road, but has shops and is about 15 minutes' walk from all the main tourist sites in the old part, Sultanahmet. We walked to the Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar and to the ferries/boats from the hotel, but there is a tram 100m away for those who want to venture further. After a tiring day of sight-seeing and haggling for good prices it was always lovely getting back each day to this really great boutique hotel.for a rest/brush up and turn around for an evening activity in this fantastic city. We shall return! NB Taxi service provided by hotel from and to hotel if requested and is well worth it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street are quiet and top ones have balconies with view of the Gulhane Park and sight of...

We arrived at the Sirkeci after a few nights at a terrible Hotel in the Greek isles where even the
cockroaches were checking out...our hopes were high after the excellent reviews and the Hotel lived up to all the wraps. A great position,just down the road from the famous mosques,cistern,Topaki etc.We had a great room overlooking the park on the 4th room ( 1401) which was very large, a wonderful,helpful staff and a very good restaurant .We were very happy and would return there in an instant.And will in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Worth the money to get a large room on the 4th floor

This was my first trip to Istanbul, my new favorite city. The hotel is perfectly located within easy walking distance to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc....Wonderful breakfast each morning before you begin your days adventure. And oh, the beds....we had been on a blue cruise as the first part of our trip and were in need of some pampering. We found it at the Serkeci. We also treated ourselves to the Sultans Massage, it was the creme de la creme. Absolutely wonderful. Afterwards, we treated ourselves to mezes and wine in our room.

I can also recommend the Lions Rugs and Kilims, right around the corner. We learned that you can't go to Turkey without buying a wonderful piece of handmade art to bring home. This business is family owned and they can tell you the stories that accompany the carpets. Absolutely mesmerizing.

What a lovely friendly hotel,from the moment we arrived we were made to feel special.
The Hotel was superb ,it was spotlessly clean the rooms were great as was the location.
We stayed at the hotel prior to our cruise and after checking in we were asked to come to reception where we were given a complimentary drink while we were informed of sights and places within easy reach of the hotel which was very helpful.We dined in the hotel restaurant.
The food and service were excellent.We cannot compliment the hotel and friendly staff to much this is only hotel that we would go to when we return to Istanbul.
