I would like to thank the front desk team of Mercure Sirkeci for their outstanding hospitality. I booked 1 night for my mom in December 2023. The team not only provided her with transfer from and to the airport, but accomodated every request of my mother. She does not speak English or Turkish, so they escorted her to the room and to the breakfast next morning. They arranged a private city center tour in Russian with a very knowledgeable, professional guide. The great location of the hotel makes it easy to access the most famous historical sites of Istanbul downtown. Big thank you and I wish the Mercure Istanbul Sirkeci team a happy and prosperous 2024!

We stayed here for 3 nights in late September, and we were received with warmth and great service. The location is pretty central with lots of shops and cafes nearby, and across this magnificent grand post office building and only a stone's throw away to the Sirkeci tram station and train station where you could take train over to the Asian side, and you could also walk to Galata bridge. We can only recommend this place!
