If the Turkish hospitality is like the friendliness in this hotel I could imagine to live in Turkey. I was welcomed to hotel by manager Ali Celik, very friendly after tough queue at passport control and long waiting for the shuffle! Actually, it was great to get friendly welcome! Ali was very proactive! His promptness/ readiness to assist and solve... More

Arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with a drink. We upgraded our room and ended up in room 903 (Istanbul, it was called) The best view over the city, honestly...... So we were well chuffed with the room, and decided to go to the restaurant and have an Efes or two admiring the view of the galat bridge, topkapi,... More

The hotel is situated amongst hardware stores however its not too far from the tram line. The best thing is the view from the restaurant on the rooftop which is lovely but aside from that there's not much else positive to say. The service is substandard and there is absoloutely nothing complimentary. Although room service is stated as 24 hours... More

Excellent hotel in perfect location to see both historical and modern city of Istanbul. Personnel are lovely, rooms are good and the restaurant Peninsula servers top dishes with a reasonable price. Breakfast is versatile and it varies a bit every day. We really loved the fresh vegetables, fruits and local cheeses that were served at breakfast.

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
