Hotel Valide Sultan Konagi
Comfort, Care, Convenience
Hotel Valide Sultan Konagi is an enchanting boutique hotel
established in a converted Ottoman mansion refurbished in
18th century decor with 21st century comforts.
Hotel Valide Sultan Konagi is proud to serve those guests who prize the unique ambience and charm of a bygone age - as well as comfort, care and convenience - rather than the impersonal, homogenized facilities promoted by the global tourism industry.
The hotel is located right in the heart of the Ancient City, the city of Caesars and Sultans, one of the oldest, most exciting and exotic cities in the world, Istanbul
A delightful boutique hotel of outstanding individuality and charm created in a converted, refurbished 19th century Ottoman mansion, proud to uphold the traditions of Old World Turkish hospitality. Like in old Ottoman Turkish mansions, an unpretentious facade conceals an interior reminiscent of the delicacy of Wedgwood china or a Faberge egg.
Accessible from the lobby or any other floor by a marble stairway or elevator (lift) is one of the hotels pre-eminent features, the Rooftop Terrace, Cafe & Restaurant, a serenely glorious world of delightful dining and stunning vistas.
Here the guests start their day invigorated by a wholesome open-buffet breakfast, enchanted by spectacular views of the city, the waters of the Bosphorus, the Sea of Marmara, Princes Islands and the shores of Asia. The great basilica of Hagia Sophia seems almost close enough to touch, as is the Imperial Gate of Topkapi Palace, while the nearby Blue Mosque looms above the massive former Sultan Ahmet prison, now converted into a noted hotel.
At night, the sweeping panorama glitters like all the gems in the Sultans treasury, and close at hand flashes the lighthouse that achieved fame through the film "Topkapi" starring Melina Mercouri, Tony Curtis and Peter Ustinoff. It is no wonder then that this breathtaking setting appeals so much to hotel guest and non-residents alike, making it the favorite place to dine in style on delicious food (fish highly recommended) or just dally over a beverage in leisure.
On a more strenuous note, fitness fans will be pleased to find the hotel neighborhood highly suitable for jogging. In fact, running on the exact site of the historic Hippodrome where Roman chariots raced nearly two millennia ago may rank among the highlights of your visit.
Of more mundane interest - but central to our concept of care for the guests well-being and safety - are smoke-detectors placed in all rooms and public spaces of the hotel, and fire-escape stairs separate from the main staircase.
