We had a great stay here. Very comfortable and extremely well located. After I had left Istanbul I realised I had left a couple of items of clothing behind in the wardrobe. I emailed the hotel and they very kindly arranged postage to Australia. Would definitely stay here again and also recommend to others.

This was my last hotel after traveling for almost 3 weeks in Turkey. Front desk when I arrived was friendly, helpful and sincere about offering me anything I could need. I arrived pretty late, so took advantage of their airport transportation, which was excellent and used it to go back to the airport the next morning. They upgraded me to... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 days at the end of October 2014. the staff are ultra efficient and knowledgeable about their city. The hotel itself is adjacent to most of the sights of the city and has a great view from the roof terrace. Highly recommended

This hotel is very close to the blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. There are plenty of restaurants close by and you can walk to all the main sites in the old city. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The main reasons I rated it low is I took my elderly parents to the hotel and I... More

The hotel is a decent hotel and it is in a good location. It is much quieter at night than at another hotel we stayed at in the area so you don't hear the early morning prayer call. (With the windows closed). The morning breakfast terrace was very nice and they always greet you with a big smile. They even... More

Great location at a great price, this hotel met all our needs and was close to everything. Staff were extremely helpful at all times. Rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat with an excellent view of Sea of Marmara.

It's all about the location in Istanbul! We were able to walk to all the sites in the Sultanahmet area and that is a big plus. We had requested a room that we didn't get and that was disappointing. We in fact got a room that was not recommended after reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor. We were 1 floor... More

We stayed at the GPH for 5 nights while exploring Istanbul. The hotel is in a quiet street, yet only a minute's walk to restaurants, shops and bars. The Topaki Palace, Blue Mosque, Sofia Hague, Grand Bazaar and spice markets are all within easy walking distance. Our room was spacious and clean, with views down the road. Breakfast was delicious...

We had a great stay at Grand Peninsula hotel. We were there in September for a week - the weather was perfect - although we had one day of rain. The location is second to none - close to all the attractions of Sultanahmet -with all the monuments, superb shops , restaurants and tramway stop just a short walk away.... More
