I stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour, with extra days at the beginning and end. You do get what you pay for - it's at the cheaper end, so the rooms are small, the bathroom is TINY and the service from the staff veers close to that at Fawlty Towers, however there are positives too. The location is... More

We struggled to find this hotel which is now called The Golden Horn Hotel - however, there is another Golden Horn Hotel up the hill from this one which is where the taxi dropped us. The staff directed us to this hotel, right behind the train station. Pluses - close to everything in the old town (Topkapi, Aya Sofia, Basilica,... More

Close walking distance to major attractions. Staff very helpful, spoke enough English to communicate basics and be helpful with arrangements. Great view from breakfast room and very good breakfast. Rooms small, beds mediocre. Bathrooms totally inferior in both rooms we stayed in - very small, shower drainage onto floor.

Stayed here for 1 night, found it a little difficult to find so had to ask some of the locals. Turns out its right next to the main tram line which I took from the airport. The hotel is very close to all major sites such as the blue mosque, the waterfront etc. Room was very comfortable with a very... More

Helpful staff and 5-15 min walking time to most interesting places in old city Istanbul. Airport shuttle works fine and great restaurants in neighbourhood. A very reasonable prices for rooms and nice view from breakfast room over the roofs to Bosphorus and yes breakfast was including all what you may need for day trips.

I visited this hotel last year, and after I had a disaster hotel reservation somewhere else and checked out after one night instead of 6 nights I went on feet to the guys there, they know me from last year, and asked for a room. They were very nice even with no reservation and they offered me a room immediately.... More

The bathroom was not clean, toilet and shower a complete wreck upon arrival. We were advised that it would be cleaned by end of the day, however by night it was still dirty at which... More

I stayed here in May 2013 with my mother. Whilst we had booked and confirmed a twin bedding, when we got our room it was in fact a double bed. It took a little bit to make the staff understand this, but once we did they had our rooms moved very quickly. Most of the staff were very friendly and... More
