The location is great but I couldn’t sleep bcz of the curtains and there were no lifts were I had to carry my baggages plus the housekeeping services is so poor they even left the trush under the sink didn’t bother to take all they did is making the bed room was still a mess and dirty. There r many better hotels in the same area for me never again.

I booked this hotel directly for a stopover in July. I also arranged my airport/hotel transfers with them ...which went perfectly. This hotel is in a great location just behind the Blue Mosque/Arasta Bazaar and within walking distance to all the old town sights. The staff are great, I arrived early and was able to check in straight away, which was much appreciated. Great breakfast on a lovely rooftop terrace. Room was well appointed and very clean. Would be happy to stay again.

The location of hotel is perfect. Breakfast here is so good. The room is bit small but cozy. There are many shops & restaurants & easy to access travel spot such as haiga sophia & blue mosque. Staffs are here friendly & helpful. But only negative side of hotel was poor wifi on 2nd floor. I stayed room number 206. My 2nights staying in hotel I never succeeded to connect internet. I asked different staffs they already known about the issue but couldn't solve.

Torn between booking a regular hotel and a boutique hotel, we chose Sari Konak for the kids to experience something different. We had booked a triple room (travelling with kids) and asked if we could upgrade. We were given a suite (502) which was a wonderful complimentary upgrade.
Pros
-The suite has a small entrance with 3 doors leading to a master bedroom, a room with twin beds and a bathroom. Although the rooms are small, they are comfortable and privacy was a added plus. Comfortable and newish furniture, laminated floors, good quality linen and towels and a pleasing color scheme.
-The bathroom is updated, modern and very clean with a hot shower. (If you don't find toiletries, look in the drawer under the sink)
-Suite is 3-4ft above ground level at the front of the hotel. We didn't have any noise issues.
-Location is terrific!!! Everything is a 2-3 min walk. Arasta Bazaar is just up the road. Night time the surrounding street look wonderfully festive with the road side restaurants.
- The management is very helpful and friendly.

Cons-
-The breakfast was really disappointing. No hot breakfast/eggs or borak. Cold hard boiled eggs, unappetizing cold meat cuts, and simit was cut into bite size pieces in a basket. The kids just had cereal and we had coffee with bread and cream cheese.
For such a wonderful place and such a wonderful breakfast place on the roof they should really improve the quality of breakfast.
-The housekeeping is a bit slow. 3rd day we returned at 3:30 pm (having left at 10:30am) and the housekeeping was only going to start our room but we were tired and just had the bathroom done. So if you plan to pop back in for a break, request an early clean up, I'm sure they will oblige.

If breakfast is not such a big deal for you, then I highly recommend this place for its modern bathroom, cleanliness and location!
Ladies heads up, the bedroom mirror is more of a feature as its tinted; so take along a mirror for makeup or use the one in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Suite 502 if you are a couple with kids or 4 people.

After 6 night, 5 rooms with my family. The hotel is near to blue mosque and aya Sophia and other museums. the hotel is mostly basic good for low budget couples but for sure they have bigger rooms. the breakfast should be upgraded it's the same daily. the staff is great helping all time with different stuff especially Mustafa
my advice: don't choose the standard room, you can't move inside.
be aware of fraud resturants in sultanhmet especially the one with no writing on it.
