My daughter and I stayed at Istanbul Golden City Hotel for three nights and I cannot say enough good things about our experience beginning with the friendly greeting when we arrived, helpfulness of staff, proximity to public transportation, and the exquisite rooftop restaurant. The view was breathtaking, the food delicious, and our waiter, Muhammet, was exceptional. I highly recommend Istanbul... More

Metro and ferry boat station located very nearby. Varied breakfast at the rooftop with stunning views of the Golden Horn was amazing. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. Galata Bridge 10min walk. Spicy Market 15min walk. Great location

The best thing though is the restaurant and the views and food is fabulous, the breakfasts are varied - you don't need to eat the same... More

Great stay. Excellent views and amazing breakfast buffet. The location. Is not the greatest, but the rooftop restaurant and view made that a moot point. The staff was friendly and the rooms were relative nice. The price was quite good and I might stay again.

Great staff, great food, amazing views from this comfortable, convenient, good value hotel. Room size good, but bathroom a bit on the small side and no pool - these are the only negatives to this hotel. Nothing has been too much trouble for the friendly staff. Would recommend and will stay here again when I come back to explore Istanbul... More

Nice view from the restaurant floor! Easy access to the public transportation (including metro to/from the airport). I got one transfer from the airport for free. I had problems with my luggage that had been left behind, the staff kindly helped to locate it. Istanbul is an amazing city where I will certainly be back. I will stay in this... More

Hotel is walking distance from most main attractions. Friendly staff. Breakfast is included and features a good variety of food. Rooftop view is amazing. My only complain is that they don't have irons!

Staying in Karakoy

Neighborhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
