Fodor's Expert Review Sarı Konak Oteli
Mimar Mehmet Ağa Cad. 26, Istanbul, Istanbul, 34122, Turkey
These bright, well-maintained accommodations in a converted Ottoman mansion have mainly modern furniture, though the decor also includes Turkish and period accents like brass lamps, antique mirrors, and Ottoman-era etchings; some rooms have original tiled floors. Breakfast is served in winter in a rustic room that opens onto a tiny courtyard and in summer on the rooftop terrace, where in the evening you can also sip a glass of rakı and contemplate the Sea of Marmara or the nearby Blue Mosque. If you don't want twin beds, or prefer a bathtub to a shower, request these when making reservations.
