The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast on the terrace was beautiful and the views were outstanding. We felt it was well worth the price, which wasn't that expensive for staying right in the heart of all the sights. You can walk to everything of interest from here.

My husband and I were in Istanbul for the first time, and Grand Peninsula did a lot to help us have a wonderful time! Their location is ideal. Almost everything we wanted was in walking distance (and when something wasn't in... More

The GPH is a tightly-run and welcoming "boutique" hotel just a stone's throw from all of Sultanahmet's major attractions and literally around the corner from Akbiyik Cadessi which has an abundance of good bars and restaurants and a chilled out vibe away from the madness. The staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating before we even left England and even... More

I stayed here for three nights this week after a two week tour around Turkey. It was great in every respect - friendly, helpful staff who greeted you by name every time they saw you, clean rooms and a lovely woman serving breakfast on one of the terraces. It is in a ver good location, close to many key sights... More

To say we needed an early check-out would be an understatement. The staff at this hotel was more than happy to wake up at 3:00am and arrange a shuttle to the airport for us. They were incredibly nice and accommodating, happy to help us find good food around the neighborhood.

We loved our stay in the Grand Peninsula Hotel. The location is perfect, next to many great restaurants and bars and a 5 minute walk to Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, etc. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and welcoming!

Excellent choice value for money. Very polite personnel, real professionals, helped us to organize the week that we spent in Istanbul. Excellent location, short walking distance from Agia Sophia / Topkapi and Sultanahmet. 7 min from tram station. The area is the most touristic and the most beautiful of Istanbul (Constantinople). All buildings in the area are renovated, Marmara sea... More

They provide a great pick up from the airport for 20euros for the whole family which is as cheap as the airport bus, doesn't take forever as... More

The staff on reception were great helping with infomation about the trams, local play parks etc. Highly recommended. Just to note they provide a kettle and... More

My family of 7 had 2 rooms in this wonderful hotel for 3 nights. The desk clerks, including Sabahattin, Ramazan, and Ahmed, were very nice and extremely helpful in giving us sightseeing advice. This place has a lovely terrace where you can eat breakfast, or just go up there for a peaceful evening overlooking the Marmara Sea. The rooms have... More
