Great location with lots of shops and eateries all around the back streets, only 10 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar which is a must see and truly unique experience. People are all very friendly and majority of the Turks speak good English and German.

I found this hotel to be nicer than I had expected, having read some of the reviews. Everything was clean, modern and comfortable. The food, both buffet and set menu, was very nice. There wasn't an American breakfast, but the hotel is not in America. On our last stay our room was directly in front of the beautiful Shehzade mosque,... More

Nice clean, small hotel room in a great location by the St. Sofia. The room has a shower with no bath tub, a flat screen TV, a mini fridge, a small table, chair and desk. The beds are a little hard with foam rubber pillows. The hotel has a pool and a work out area. The staff was very pleasant.

What more could you ask for when you don't plan on staying in the hotel that much? Very clean room. Modern bathroom, excellent breakfast in large dining hall located below lobby with 3 full buffet tables, coffee, tea, breads, olives...everything. Very nice staff. Restaurant on lobby level too.

This place isn't anything fancy, but is somewhat centrally located (ok to walk to Spice Market...need taxi to Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia). Honestly...with so much to do in Istanbul we didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the hotel so we weren't looking for something fancy. The staff was pleasant and the room was clean. The room...

This is a good hotel!

Both the pool areas are great, clean and provides towels. Spa only have hammam and massage on it's menu but it's a really nice... More

All in all the location and facilities that this hotel offers are very good but it gets let down all over. The housekeeper we had for the first 2 days forgot a cover for the bed quilt, toilet rolls and generally not very tidy, the more mature lady that serviced our room for the next 5 days was a champion....

Our family of 4 stayed in the Hotel Gulsoy for 2 nights before moving on to stay with friends in another part of Istanbul. The Hotel is very central, on a noisy street but that's Istanbul for you ! It's only a 10/15 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar, the Metro and short taxi rides to most of the touristy... More
