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! Rooms are good, very clean and provides all comforts you could ask for such as minibar, safe box, hygenic products, coffemaker etc. Breakfast provides a good selection and staff is nice. 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

The Grand Hotel Gulsoy was perfectly located for visiting Istanbul. In the middle of town, it is not far from most of the sites you need to visit in Istanbul, the longest walk being 30mins for the Blue Mosque heading eastward. The hotel itself caters for most needs. It has a lovely swimming in the basement, dimly and soothingly lit... More

It is across the road from The Sehazade Mosque, and my room faced this Mosque as well looking out towards The Suleymaniye Mosque and the skyline of 'newer' Istanbul across The Golden Horn. I personally found the 'call to prayers' a soothing part of the rhythm of the day ! The hotel is ideally situated for exploring Istanbul; the Aquaduct... More
