Considered by many guests as one of Istanbul`s key hotels, the 4-star Sirkeci Konak has the added distinction of being one of the city`s most highly-rated and well-received hotels. Ideally located in the Old City quarter of Sirkeci, the hotel is genuinely no more than a short walk from many of this captivating city`s historical monuments and attractions; these include the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Spice Bazaar, and Hagia Sophia to name but a few. Offering 52 guestrooms, the hotel`s accommodation naturally includes AC, mini-bar, safety deposit box, bathrobe, tea/coffee, satellite TV and free wi-fi. As regular visitors to Istanbul will attest, the city just teems with a wide range of excellent and colourful restaurants. Nevertheless, the hotel`s Neyazde restaurant prides itself on its culinary achievements and no guest should leave Istanbul without trying the hotel`s authentic gastronomic offerings at least once. With its indoor pool, rooftop terrace, sauna and traditional Turkish bath, the hotel`s standards and amenities are only bettered by the hotel`s proximity to the closest tram stop. No more than 20 metres away, the modern tram service speeds guests from the colourful quarters of bustling Laleli, through historical Sultanahmet, past the busy and chaotic Eminonu Piers, over the Golden Horn`s Galata Bridge to grand Beyoglu and finally to contemporary Taksim. And to complement all of this, the mulitilingual staff are just wonderfully welcoming, attentive and helpful - thoroughly recommended!
