I have been to Istanbul on a few occasions for business and have stayed in some lovely comfortable hotels. This hotel was not one! The hotel was booked by the receiving company. As soon as I was emailed the details I checked on Trip Advisor for reviews. The reviews were generally negative. Taking a chance is never really a smart... More

Upon arrival, we were placed in the smallest, dingiest room that I think they had - the carpet was dirty, the shower head leaked (not from the tap, but from the fitting itself) and everything smelled musty (no small wonder that there was plenty of black mildew growing in the corners and grout of the shower/tub). It turned out to... More

I am sitting in the lobby of this awful hotel right now, and dreading going back to my room. Upon my arrival I changed rooms twice in hope I'd get a better one, but all was in vain. In the first room lights didn't work and it was so dirty. There was hair all over in the bathroom and the... More

I bet its called "Golden Age" because it was built at the glories 1980's, and never refurnished Since than. Hardly some maintenance (not necessarily bulbs replacement). But, the sheets are clean, hot water at the shower, breakfast is perfectly OK (if you don’t mind they don’t replace the maps every day). For only few nights, in which you need a... More

This is rated as a 4 star hotel but is really a 3 star level. Having said that the room was clean, the water was hot and the heating worked great (we were visiting in December). The staff tried to help but could not speak English very well and were not very well informed. We has some pealing wallpaper in... More

I have never been in a dirtier hotel in my life. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. The 2 star hostels I stayed at years ago where much better and cleaner than this. Dont' be tempted by the price. Stay away. During our stay several guests (including us) wlaked out and others just stayed because they couldn't... More

Just don't go there. All the plumbing screams for replacement. Breakfast is just awful - outright rotten vegetables (tea is passable). Simple plumbing fix took 4 days (I reminded them twice a day). Small and dirty room, tobacco smoke smell everywhere. The only positive impression - sauna, hamam and massage. These were good, the staff was kind and professional.
