Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Tashkonak Istanbul

Küçük Ayasofya Cad., Tomurcuk Sok. 5, Istanbul, Istanbul, 34400, Turkey

Occupying two adjacent, Ottoman-style wooden houses on a quiet side street, Hotel Tashkonak has appealing rooms, friendly service, and a spacious, leafy garden patio that is a calming oasis in busy Sultanahmet. Cozy rooms have old-fashioned touches like chandeliers, boudoirs with mirrors, ornamental designs painted on the ceilings, and framed Ottoman prints and watercolor paintings; three family rooms comfortably sleep four to five people each. The roof terrace has a sweeping view of the Sea of Marmara, and complimentary tea is offered every afternoon in the garden.
