Spent 5 nights at the Hotel Sari Konak. It is an excellent mid-priced hotel. The best part about it is its location, an easy 5-minute walk to the Hagia Sofi and Blue Mosque, with lots of decent restaurants within walking distance. The hotel has a lovely rooftop terrace with an incredible view of the Blue Mosque and the Bosporus; it's a shame, though, that you cannot eat breakfast up there, although the downstairs garden, where breakfast is served is lovely. The room was clean, comfortable, and surprisingly quiet; did not even hear the early morning call to prayer. Good shower, and nice amenities in the bathroom, including some very nice olive oil soap. The reason why I give the hotel 4 stars instead of 5 is that the room service was a bit uneven (one morning we only got one bath towel instead of two, and whoever was cleaning the room also did not replenish the packets of coffee and tea), and the breakfast, as many other reviewers have noted, is adequate but could be a lot better. The bread were particularly mediocre, which is too bad because there is wonderful bread in Istanbul, but there were good olives and cheeses, watermelon, fresh pears, yoghurt, etc, as well as some good cooked potatoes with paprika. All in all, great value, and an absolutely incredible location, Highly recommended!

Thank you for your positive comments. We normally serve our breakfast at our rooftop however this year we serve it downstairs , in our patio. Its probably going to be served on the rooftop next summer.

This small hotel is located very close to the sultanahmet square (3-4 min walk) which is encompassed by the blue mosque, Hagia sophia and Topkaki palace so location is excellent.
Pros- excellent location
- daily house keeping so kept very clean
- decent breakfast downstairs with seating inside and outside
- upstairs balcony accessible at any time which has wonderful views
- helpful staff with good english
- good wifi

Cons- very small rooms, even upgraded they are small, total space is 5m x 3.5m, including shower and cupboards leaving only 2.5m x 3.5m for the room after
- keys must be left at reception when ever leaving.
- rooms are very basic and have no tea/coffee facility in room
-mouldy shower

As a basic hotel it is fine especially for its location and cleaniness but the rooms lack features.

Room Tip: upgraded rooms are not much bigger than standard

Thank you for your comments. We always try to inform our guests that our Standard/Economic rooms are smaller than our Superior or Deluxe rooms. Therefore if you are looking for a little bit more space , then we would recommend to book a Superior or a Deluxe room instead.

A very nice, welcoming and cozy hotel with great hospitality, good breakfast and perfect location. The hotel is very close to the blue mosque and Hagia Sophia square and a tram station. It is also located in the middle of many sightseeing sites.

this bijou hotel is ideally situated in the old quarter of istanbul - within walking distance of the blue mosque, the topkapi palace, the hagia sofia. lots of local amenities, turkish restaurants, gift shops, cobbled street and turkish buildings with balconies. very polite hotel staff, very relaxed atmosphere. there is a terrace overlooking the blue mosque, where you can chill out with your own turkish wine.!

My friend and I stayed in the hotel for 6 days, the staff are so helpful and Kind, they were always there to help wether it was how to get somewhere or filling up our water bottle. We even had to contact them when we got lost in the centre and they were kind enough to direct us from there. They constantly respond to their phone and the maids are so lovely, loved the breakfast, smile and the service they provided us every morning. Great location, many restaurants nearby and the blue mosque is nearby which was a bonus. The hotel and the service is 10/10!!
