We stayed at this quality hotel for a total of 4 nights during two separate visits. It’s within easy walking distance to the sights of the old city. The efficient and modern T1 tram line at the bottom of the road provides a short ride to the waterfront and the bridge across to the newer part of the city. The... More

We stayed at the Golden Horn twice during our Peregrine Tour of Turkey. Our first experience was in a micro twin room, where we had to access our luggage one at a time, in order to have space to open it. On our return we were given a delux twin and it was way better. Yet another friend found himself... More

The hotel is strategically situated, very close to some attractions and also close to the tram station. It is true that the rooms are quite small and quite different in reality from the pictures on the website. However, it did not bother me enough to complain about it. My room was at the 4th floor, which was an advantage on... More

Be careful that you have the correct Golden Horn Hotel. This one is dreadful. I had booked 2 rooms (3 adults)for 4 nights and we struggled to stay 1. This is not a 4* hotel! it was worn, dirty and smelly. The reception staff were quite surly and rude and didn't seem to care that we were obviously very unhappy.... More

The location is very good (few minutes away from Aya Sofya), the food also and the service is great, they helped us a lot by explaining how should we go to our destinations- what tram should we take... Their hospitality comes naturally and they always offered us some tea...

I don't even know where to start... look at the pictures on the hotel's official page and you will see how stretched out they are. The rooms are miniature. The largest room they had, suited for 3 people, had barely enough space to place our suitcases on the floor. The bathroom is tiny and worn down - wall and ceiling... More

Our stay in The Golden Horn Hotel was a great one! We visited Istanbul in November 2014 ( that was our 3rd time) for the Marathon race! The hotel is very close to the sights of Istanbul. The rooms are rather small but very cozy! The people there did their best by being sweet and reluctant to offer their services... More

We had two very different experiences here at the beginning and end of a trip. First visit: First impressions here are of a very fancy hotel. A doorman greets the cab as it pulls up, and inside is an army of people both behind and in front of the desk. The lobby is big and impressive although the upholstered chairs... More
