Expert review of Hotel Sarı Konak

Atmospheric and tastefully decorated ‘Yellow Mansion’ close to all the sights.

Much attention was clearly paid to detail in this converted Ottoman mansion; on my last visit, I admiringly noted its well-placed antiques, individually decorated rooms, and attractive terrace. The pleasant staff and high-quality breakfast add to the experience.

Location: 

In a lively, but not too noisy, part of Sultanahmet, the Sarı Konak makes a convenient base for sightseeing in the Old City.

Bedrooms: 

The 17 rooms and suites each have their own distinct charm. I was surprised at the generous size of the two rooms, separated by a rich rust-coloured curtain, in the “family room,” and charmed by the deluxe double’s white-cushioned window seat just big enough to curl up and read in. The standard rooms, though small, are equally well appointed, with small wall-mounted lamps and an attractive blue-and-white-patterned bedspread. No rooms have views, though some do have tiny private balconies overlooking the garden.

Public areas: 

A large terrace with a panoramic view across the Marmara Sea offers indoor and outdoor seating in rattan chairs, some shaded by arching linen canopies. There’s also a small, attractive garden with wrought iron chairs and white marble fountains, enclosed on one side by an ancient Byzantine wall.

Eating and drinking: 

A high-quality breakfast buffet is served on the terrace or in the cosy breakfast room, depending on the season. There is no restaurant, but drinks are available on the roof after 3 pm.

Service: 

This family-run hotel provides friendly and helpful service, and staff have lots of good tips to offer visitors.
