“Very good experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2011

We're a couple that came to Istanbul for the first time for an extended weekend, as one of us participated in a medical conference in the city. We chose the Konak Hotel because of its proximity to the Istanbul Conference Center, and because of the good reviews here on tripadvisor. I'm very happy to write that we were not disappointed.

We arrived at Ataturk airport near midnight, so it was very helpful that the hotel sent a driver for our pickup. We found the superior double room we reserved to be very clean, which is very important to us, and also surprisingly large. We asked in advance for a quiet room on a high floor, and got one on the top seventh floor. It wasn't facing the street, so it was indeed very quiet (though not much of a view from our window... but we prefer no-view and no-noise!). The staff was nice and helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast was nice and tasty with fresh pastries, though we must write that its general variety wasn't large.

The location was perfect for us - if you come to Istanbul for a conference, this is the closest hotel to the Istanbul main conference center apart from the Hilton. It is also very close to Taksim Square, which is the main public transportation hub for Istanbul (and also the terminal for the airport shuttle buses, which we used for our trip back to the airport). Apart from business, a trip should of course include at least a little pleasure, and as the hotel is a short walk away from Istiklal street, the main shopping and nightlife street of the city, we had plenty of that as well.

We found the Konak Hotel to be be very nice, welcoming, clean, quiet and well situated for our needs. We recommend it whether you intend to visit Istanbul for a conference, for business or for pleasure. Should we come to Istanbul again, we'll be sure to stay there.

This boutique hotel is well worth it, and conveniently located in the Taksim area of Istanbul. In particular, since traffic in Istanbul may easily be horrendous, staying CLOSE TO your meetings for the next day, is crucial. This hotel, only 45 minutes from the airport in some daytime traffic, is well run, no frills, but absolutely worth it. Beds are hard (!), but rooms are well kept, clean and with good amenities.

The breakfast is a little minimal on ambience, but selection is OK and is served fresh.

The internet connection was variable, I have to admit, and during peak hours, it was hard to get much bandwidth.

I will absolutely stay again, well worth it.

Konak Hotel is in a very close proximity of Istiklal street and has a starbucks very close by as well. The rooms are very nice and clean. There is a small shop directly next to it where its easy to get water and it has a hairdresser next to it as well. Very Safe environment as well.

The location of the hotel was excellent and very near to Taksim. I stayed here for five nights. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The check in and checkout was very quick. The rooms were very spacious,clean with daily change of linen, towels and other toilet essentials. The breakfast was excellent with a very good menu to suit everyone's taste with ample availability of variety of juices and tea/coffee. My flight in the evening was late so I requested for a late checkout till 3 pm which was granted.The pick up and drop at the airport can also be arranged by the hotel at a very reasonable cost. There are money exchange shops and also good food outlets nearby. For my next visit to Istanbul I would surely prefer to stay again in this hotel. I recommend this hotel for the business travellers and for the couples and families.

Room Tip: Higher Floors are better.

The location of the hotel is away from Taksim busy area, however the area is quiet and it is 5 minutes walking to Taksim square, the hotel is facing Taksim Hilton hotel. Konak is a very clean and quiet hotel, the breakfast is amazing specially pastries which were unbelievably tasty. Staffs were helpful and are good in English. The size of the room was good, elegant and very clean and well furnished, toilet and shower are in good shape. I recommend this hotel for business traveler as well as for couples.

Room Tip: I got my room on the 7th floor, the view was not attracting, but room was spacy, cosy and very clean
