We had a wonderful 5-night stay at Golden City Hotel in June 2014. The rooms/terrace have amazing views of the Golden Horn and the hotel is perfectly situated between Sultanahmet and Taksim. The hotel is just a few minutes walk to public transport. The complimentary breakfast spread has many delicious options, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are spacious.... More

The other reviews have summed up nicely everything that is great or lacking with this hotel. Yes the lift is small, yes there are no local amenities within the very near vicinity BUT the rooms are cosy, clean and great value for money. To get to the city a short stroll along 'Black & Decker Street' takes you to Karakoy... More

I stayed at the Istanbul Golden City for a week in June of 2014, and had a perfectly enjoyable experience. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful, even under unusual circumstances (my flight was horribly delayed and I arrived at 4 AM, only to be met by a very kind manager, despite the hour!). The rooms are comfortable and the... More

Restaurant beautiful views, great service and food. Not a fancy neighborhood;... More
