I stayed at a Golden Horn hotel before in Istanbul in the Sultanachmet district and was very pleased. When booking, I guess I should have checked more carefully because upon arrival we were taken to 2 Golden Horn hotels before finally the 3rd one was the right one. This one is not in the Sultanachmet, so we had to walk... More

We had a 4 days city break to Istanbul from the 4th - 7th November. The Golden Horn at Sirkeci is the perfect location in the old quarter of Istanbul and with everything on your doorstep from cultural things to shopping in the grand bazaar. The hotel is ok but there are better just along the street or a couple... More

The Golden Palms at Mussoorie(Uttarakhand) offers an excellent place to stay, enjoy the holidays and rejuvenate oneself. Offering a panoramic view of the valley and a convenient location to make day trips, the hotel offers an extremely good option for the money spent. With an excellent menu and a very cordial and helpful hotel staff , this is a place... More

We stayed here in September 2013. We had booked 4 standard twin rooms. All the staff at the hotel were absolutely fabulous. They were all super friendly (Ingen & Buraq at reception) - happy to assist with booking tours and giving us maps of all the sights to visit and directions. We were not happy with the rooms and they... More

I had a mixed experience, the staffs are very cooperative and helpful but not professional, hardly understand English, specially the support staff. We came very early morning and they let us do early check in and mentioned that they have better room and provide that if we wait a bit, so we though as we paid well lets wait for... More

Absolutely a superb experience. The area of course is the obvious advantage but combined with a good price and warm people makes this hotel very lovely. This is a real second home for the guests. Respect to all.

I stayed at the golden horn as part of a tour, topdeck. We were upgraded to the goldenhorn instead of staying at a different hotel, we were welcomed with drinks, and friendly staff who were very helpful with bags etc. Very approachable and had a good sense of humor, which really made my experience of staying at the golden horn...

I've been this year my second time at this hotel and this time the breakfast was terrible poor particularly for a meat eater like me. I could starve with what was available there. Luckily there are plenty of restaurants nearby with a good bkf offer.
