Situated in the old city this holt looked shabby and uninviting. The receptionist was very helpful and on arrival told us we would be staying in her friends hotel next door which was better. Part of the deal included transfer to the main bus station but this did not happen and we had to arrange alternative transport. I would not... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel just inside the gate of the old city with a friendly helpful staff, clean rooms and easy access to the incredible historic sites in the Sultanahmet area. It is just inside the old city gate so the street does have a fair amount of traffic at certain times of day but we felt... More

We stayed there for one night and the hotel was good. It was very close to the Blue mosque and Sultanahmet tram station. But the problem is that the way from the hotel to the city is very steep uphill. The room was also clean. The hotel didn't have elevator. But the breakfast was not good at all.

I did stay, there is like a palace. Stuff are helpfully, clean and fastest. Room's air is too fresh. I like that. Excellent. My favorite turkish hotel. Breakfast was amazing and sea look is so nice. If you wanna comfortably, fresh and silent place you are looking true place.

Arrived at this hotel on 3rd May at 11.30pm only to be informed that there were no room reserved for us! Even though I had a hotel voucher from Travel Republic stating otherwise, the receptionist was adamant that she did not receive a reservation but surprisingly received the money for the room bookings? hmmm after offering us one night with...

Me and my girlfriend went again to Istanbul, we love this city, and stayed at the Golden Palace. The hotel is clean, slightly worn, but definitely clean. Mattress is almost new and comfortable, the host is kind and helpful, price is fair. Hotel is a few minutes walking from amenities like Agia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, tramway stop, restaurants, shops,... More

This is a budget hotel and do not expect anything else, then you will be happy otherwise disappointed. The staff speaks good English and are very helpful. The rooms are not sound proof so a noisy neighboor could be a problem. Also the AC was noisy. Breakfast just below average. But it is price wise a good choice and the... More

I can't believe some people actually like this place. We were accosted by travel agent at the airport and they talked us into booking here. When we saw our room, we asked for a different one and they would not let us change rooms. Then we asked for a refund and they refused that also. We decided to stay one... More
