We at Secretplaces pride ourselves in choosing only those accommodations that have something truly special to offer the discerning traveller. The Sari Konak in no exception to this rule, of course, and if you don't take our word for it see what others have to say:
"To open a hotel of this category in Sultanahmet where there are plenty of hotels, was something that needed courage... but the bet was won. There is everything to please you at Istanbul Hotel Sari Konak" Guide du Routard.
"This converted Ottoman mansion is one of the most attractive small hotels in Sultanahmet" Eyewitness.
" The dedicated service afforded by the Okan family and hotel staff creates a most welcoming atmosphere and their attention to even the smallest detail is evident throughout" Johansens.
There's plenty more from where that came from. One recurring theme in all reviews (including our own) is the friendliness of this family run hotel that makes it a home from home.
It is one of the things that make it special, for as Umit Okan, the Sari Konak owner himself says "I wanted a hotel that was better than all the ones I stayed in" Well, he's not far off the mark.
From the outside, you might not realise what it has to offer. OK, so it's located in a great historic area of the city - the Sultanahmet (Old Istanbul) - but you could easily pass the "Yellow Mansion", to give it its English name equivalent, without a second glance.
Inside, it's a different story. The Okan family have a keen eye for detail and have decorated this three story 23 room hotel using traditional fabrics, Turkish crafts and Ottoman antiques. There is even a spectacular roof terrace with great vistas of town and a marble fountain gently gurgling away. In short, it retains a delicious authenticity that is increasingly hard to find in tourist hotspots.
Given all this - the homely atmosphere, authentic nature of the place, the location in Old Istanbul only five minutes from the Blue Mosque and what we consider to be impressive prices, it is hardly surprising that another accolade the Sari Konak has earned is "One of the best choices" in the city.

We stayed at the Hotel Sari Konak twice during our recent visit to Turkey. It is a great little hotel in a great location with fine facilities, a lovely roof-top terrace bar and breakfast lounge - and, very importantly, helpful and friendly staff. We've already recommended it to our friends.

Very good quality-price range The staff was very friendly and help us in all we ask them. The give us good recommendations for dinner. The maid at breakfast was very kind. Perfect situations behind the Blue Mosque. Rooms were nice, very comfortable bed. I would suggest increasing the bath-room comfort: better towels and amenities. We have had a lovely staying

We cannot say enough about the comfort and convenience of the Istanbul Hotel Sari Konak. We first "discovered" this boutique hotel in 1997. Since then we have stayed at the Hotel Sari Konak each time we have visited Istanbul. The location in Sultanahmet is unbeatable. Better still is the fact that the Hotel Sari Konak does not have an institutional feel - it is one of the most "homelike" hotels we have ever stayed in. We feel like part of an extended family in a very comfortable home, a home that just happens to have extraordinary rooftop views of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara. J&DG
Third visit
Date of stay 04/08/2011
This is our third visit to this lovely Istanbul hotel. It was recommended to us by our American friends, regular guests, and it exceeded our expectations. Ideal position, stylish and authentic decor, homely and friendly atmosphere, delicious and healthy breakfasts will make one's stay truly a memorable affair. Should you need anything including where to eat or what to buy, just ask. Nothing is too difficult for Mr Okan and his staff . Going back to Sari Konak Hotel is like going to visit an old friend. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. L&JB
