The Golden City Hotel is perfectly located between Sultanachmet and Taksim. With the tram, Metro, Tunnelbahn or the boat you can reach all locations quite easily. Even going to the Asian side (Üsküdar) is quite easy with the state ferries and having a nice view from Camlica hill. The staff in the hotel is extraordinary friendly and fullfilled all requests...

The hotel is quite near to the major sight seeing attractions of the old city and is a bridge walk away from Spice Bazaar which itself is connected to Grand Bazaar. Though the rooms are small but they are cozy, clean and comfortable. Most importantly staff hospitality is amazing. Very helpful and supportive staff. Good breakfast and view from the... More

ITs only five minutes away from the Bridge.The only downside is there is only tool shops in and around the hotel,on the rear end of the hotel there is a fish market with local fish restaurants which are open from morning to night...

The hotel location is great for the old city with the major attractions and has amazing views from the roof. The breakfast has a huge choice of food for both meat eaters and vegetarians like us. The downsides however are that the 'sea view' rooms are small (9 feet wide to the window and 10 feet from bed head to... More

As you check in, you are served a lovely glass of layered cherry and orange juices, and the elegant and welcoming service continues from that point on. The location is convenient to everything; the mosques, the park, the Grand Bazaar. Despite such a reasonable price the rooms are elegant and modern. But my favorite thing of all is the rooftop...
