We stayed in Eski konak for four nights between the 15th and the 19th of April. The hotel was good with a great location. The hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel owner Mrs. Sofia is always available for help and she will give you lots of recommendations of places to visit. The hotel location is great with 5 to 10 minutes walk from hagia Sofia, blue mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern & Gulhane Park. The Sultanahmet tram station is about 10 minutes walk where you can reach lots of istanbul's attractions from there. The area is so lively with lots of resturants. Rooms are very clean. The room which we stayed in needed some maintenance.
