I stayed in a good sized triple room. Amenities were good and the staff was excellent. They were friendly and helpful throughout. My parents were with me. My dad brought his iPad downstairs to check the news after breakfast and our tour came to pick us up. The staff took the iPad and it was on his bed waiting for... More

Gulhane Park is a modest hotel with a superb location and a friendly supportive staff. My daughter and I stayed there in May and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I mistakenly left a pouch with a lot of cash and my healthcare and many other important cards in the room after checking out, and the hotel manager immediately e-mailed me to ask... More

This hotel was the cheapest for us in Istanbul. The service was amazing, roof terrace very nice and most important for us: very good location. The hotel is only a few minutes walk away from Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. I recommend this hotel!

Great location in the heart of the Old City of Istanbul - within walking distance to many of the most famous monuments of the city and with very easy access to the tram. Spacious rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice roof terrace restaurant. Very good buffet breakfast. All you could ask for, especially if you travel on budget! Next... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The location is perfect with the Blue Mosque and several other sites within walking distance. The staff was friendly and the roof top terrace was a welcome place to relax at the end of a long day of sightseeing.

The only redeeming factor for this hotel is it's location. It is walking distance to Topkapi Palace and a short walk to tram station. Some of the staff is rude, while some of the others try to be helpful. The food was barely edible. The room was large but the amenities scarce. There are many other choices to stay in... More

We booked this hotel using Amex points. What a disappointment! The rooms were sparse, the towels threadbare, there were no washcloths or tissues in the room, the staff was rude, and the breakfast food quite mediocre. Need I say more? I was there with 3 other ladies, so perhaps the rudeness was a result of us not traveling with a... More

Great location for a family vacation. Clean room, good service, well priced. You can walk to St. Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar. Nice and welcoming personnel. Breakfast is included, nice variety. Would return anytime.

I have been to many 4 stars hotels but this is defenetely NOT a 4 star hotel. We experienced a bathroom with fungus and bad smell. The towels are pretty old and they don't feel clean. However the staff was helpful and the hotel is very Close to almost everything. Istanbul is not a cheap destination but I would prefer... More
