“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Well-appointed, and perfectly located in the touristy part of town. Plenty of restaurant choices, although for variety I'd head to Taksim myself. The reception was never less than friendly, and breakfast, served upstairs with a view or in the elegant downstairs in rainy weather, was adequate, fresh and with tea/ coffee generously dispensed. Only gripe might be the spotty wifi during the stay, but a man was there fixing it and there was good connection in the lobby. Compared to the other hotel I stayed at in the vicinity, Sari Konak was immeasurably superior. If I were to stay in the area again, Sari Konak would be a top choice for a good balance of budget (not strictly cheap, but not four seasons extravagant) and solid comfort.

We really liked this place. Our room was cute and comfy. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the place had a nice vibe to it. Breakfast consisted of dried fruits, yoghurt, good bread, a selection of cold meats, olives & fresh fruit.

Really recommend it

My husband and I stayed at Sari Konak for 4 nights; the hotel and location were perfect for our trip. We had a deluxe room (301) that had a nice little setee by the window. The airport pickup and return was a little disjointed, but I'm glad I didn't have to hassle with a taxi. The hotel is very centrally located for walking to all the major Istanbul sites - we even walked up to the Church of St Saviour in Chora and across the bridge to Beyoglu. There are several convenience stores nearby to purchase water, snacks, wine and beer. I would recommend Sari Konak to anyone planning to visit Istanbul and would stay here again if I return.

What an absolutely lovely hotel. The place is just perfect and perfectly decorated. Neither too much or too little. It feels much more like you are staying in someone's home than in a hotel. But, that is not to say that it is folksy. Just that is it so lovingly put together, it doesn't feel at all corporate or mass-produced. Great little breakfast buffet, in such a beautiful breakfast room. We didn't want to leave. The staff absolutely cannot do enough for you and every recommendation they gave us was superb. We were with our two kids (12 and 15), but this would also be a great get away for a couple. All the furnishings are very high quality. The bathrooms were good-sized and well-appointed. Steps from fab shops and restaurants and the Arasta Bazaar. A five-minute walk to Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque, maybe seven mins to the Basilica Cistern and 15 minutes to the Grand Bazaar.

Room Tip: They all seemed like great rooms. Our kids had a smaller room, but it was just as beautifully decor...

Sari Konak Otel is a quaint hotel in a fantastic location near the Blue Mosque, Arasta Bazaar (small bazaar) and Hagia Sophie. We enjoyed many conversations with the front desk staff - Hasan and Mustafa. They offered many suggestions of sights to see, places to eat, booked our day trips and transportation as well as answered our endless list of questions with a smile. We stayed in the family suite to accommodate our family of 4. We had plenty of room to rest. The bathroom was spacious, but it was a bath tub / no shower with no curtain - made showering a little adventurous to not get the rest of the bathroom wet and no fan/vent to release the steam. There was a small mildew issue along the wall of the bath tub. Overall, the room was very clean. The morning breakfast was plentiful with cereal, yogurt, breads, fruit and tea. Not a lot of seating in the breakfast area as we were a touring group of 10, but they quickly added more tables to accommodate the guests.
