This pretty little hotel is tucked away in one of the quiet little streets surrounding the Blue Mosque. Great care and attention has been paid to the interior design of the rooms, with the furnishings from an era of luxurious grandeur. The hall ways are mini museums with framed garments and hat displays from past times. There is a beautiful secluded garden courtyard to relax in at the end of the day. The staff are very friendly and can not do enough to help, and gave good advice on local trips. The hotel is ideally situated to visit the Palaces, Mosques and many sights of ancient historical interest in the old quarter. It is also close to the tram, which allows access to other parts of Istanbul.

It was a joy to stay at this hotel and I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: It is definitely worth upgrading to the best rooms if you can, as they are more spacious.

Great Hotel, Great Staff and Great location.

We stayed here for 7 nights and all I can say it felt more homely than a typical hotel which was great. Loved the decor with all the furniture and countless frames and hats!!

Fantastic location with the Arasta Bazaar, Blue Mosque and waterfront literally 5 min walk if that. If you love your food you'll find plenty of places to chose from.

A special mention to the staff Murat, Osman, Ata to name a few who are very helpful and friendly and made a stay faultless.

Without hesitation would book again.

We contacted the hotel directly and reserved the larger Executive Room, over a Deluxe Room because we wanted more space for our 5 night stay in Istanbul. The room we were given did not feel like the 20 square meter as indicated on its website. We found out during our stay by peering into other rooms while being cleaned that there are indeed rooms bigger than ours. We then asked a night receptionist whether the room we stayed in is an Executive or Deluxe room and he confirmed that we were in a Deluxe Room. Erten Konak was dishonest in charging us or 5 nights at the higher Executive Room rate but giving us a Deluxe Room without any explanations. As we already paid for the room and have all our belongings in the room, we avoided confronting the hotel. Afterwards, we checked their website and the room we were in, #304, is the first photo shown under Deluxe Room. In the same gallery, there is another photo showing #304 as a Deluxe Room.

Also, the rooms are a bit rough on the edges after you get over the nice décor upon first sight but moreover, housekeeping at Erten Konak is inconsistent at best. We were there 5 nights and each day was different. The bathroom was not cleaned everyday nor was the trash taken out. There are plenty of hotels in Istanbul. Stay at a honest one that give you what you reserved and paid for.

Very nice place with amazing Staff especially Ümit. I stayed here for two nights but let me tell you this guy checked me in 6 hours early as soon as I arrived and let me stayed late for 8 hrs as I was scheduled to go for tour. Hotel is located right behind the Blue Mosque and many other tourist places right in the heart of sultanahmet. Amazing service and very reasonable prices. Offer all kind of tours based on my schedule. Also if you need the guidance how to get anywhere in the city, the staff explains and guide you like it's part of their job. I am recommending this place to all my family and friends.
