After staying in Sultanahmet district, I can say this location is not the best when traveling to Istanbul, especially for first time visitors to the city. The main street is very busy and not many good places to eat or shop in the area. Out of the all the areas I explored in Istanbul, this area was at the lower... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, early May 2015. Reception staff were rude and not helpful. Asked for a map, told they didn't have any. Hotel is right opposite a mosque, so call to prayers is extreme loud, as is the traffic. Rooms were ok, beds hard as rocks. Breakfast is ordinary. I would not stay here again.

Thankfully we didn't need to spend much time in the room. The "Business Class" room (an upgrade to deluxe from standard) was very poorly lit; partly because the room looked out over a small dark central courtyard area and one of the lights needed the only socket available outside the bathroom - so if the kettle was on or the...

My partner and I just spent 5 days at The Grand Hotel Gulsoy in Istanbul. Booking a hotel for a holiday is always a tough job - every hotel however good always has someone who leaves a bad review so in the end you just have to choose somewhere. We were delighted with everything at The Gulsoy and would highly... More

Stayed here 4 nights for a city trip. Location ok but out of the busy centre. Tram or metro gets you there quick and cheap. There's a mosque across the street, as beautiful as the blue mosque but very quiet instead. Sound from street only minor on the 3rd floor, but the mosque gave us an early wake up. If... More

Rooms are not sound proof, Very loud. You can clearly hear the talk in the other room and the corridor. The breakfast was below average. Good location (In Sultanahmet Area) 15 - 20 Mins walk / 900 Meters from the tram station. Small reception. Average Hotel. would rate it as 3.5 star.

Stayed here for 5 nights. It is a very clean hotel where the hotel staff tried hard to help us with any problem we encountered. The breakfast buffet had fresh food which was nicely presented. The hotel is close to public transport and it was an easy walk to the grand bazaar.

Great location in the European part of Istanbul. A 15 minute walk to Galata Bridge and the Spice Bazaar, to the north. Or you can walk to the University area and down to Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia or the Blue Mosque. Was on a Tour with Gate1 travel, so we had a Buffet Breakfast and Dinner at the hotel which... More

I stayed at this hotel with my spouse and our 8 months old baby. We had a great experience with almost everything in the hotel. We were extremely happy with the cleanliness of our room, as they changed our sheets and towels daily. Front desk staff were also VERY kind and accommodating. Our flight was cancelled two days in a... More
