It is in the old part of city (Beyazit section) near the University and Grand Bazaar(10 minute walk) rooms were very clean and comfortable, bed a little firm. Has nice bathroom but only shower that has a nice rainhead. Didn't think the rooms were that small. Staff was very helpful and friendly. There is a handy small convenience store down... More

Very nice rooms, small but comfortable with windows that open. NIce to get fresh air now and then. No bath tub but a very nice modern shower and bathroom with 110 shaver plug. We were traveling with a group, Gate1, and were pleasantly surprised with the quantity of choices and quality of the buffet. Plenty of local shops for leather... More

Modern hotel located in university section of old city. Walking distance to tramway. Rooms are very clean and modern but very small. Our room had a shower but no bathtub. Also one window would not completely close. Adequate food but nothing special. Decent grilled meats in restaurant.

This is an excellent hotel with first class staff. We were impressed at first sight and the reception staff could not have been more helpful. The room was first class with a large firm bed and a view over the city. It is a short walk to get on the Metro (beware this is not an experience for the faint... More

Good hotel with small rooms (but everything you need!) with a great rooftop view. Loved the mosque next door -- the call to prayer will wake you up! My only complaint is with the heat & a/c system. It has to be one or the other. We went in October which can be either hot or cold. I don't mind... More

This hotel is very convenient to the parliament with the changing of the guard and the Grand Bazaar. We enjoyed dining in the hotel cafe which had affordable tasty food. Breakfasts were included and the daily selection was very good. What truly impressed me was the actions of the kind gentleman working the front desk at 5:00 a.m. on the... More

We had three very comfy rooms near each other on the first floor - spacious, good showers, mini-bar, large sat telly (could have done with more UK progs but had BBC World Service), free wifi, slippers etc. My brothers' rooms were a bit...

I traveled to Grand Gulsoy in August 2013 for a week. The outdoor swimming pool was fantastic with a great view of the city and old mosques. The hotel is located in old part of Istanbul near grand bazaar.

I stayed at Grand Hotel Gulsoy for a couple of nights at August 2013. This place has excellent location, near the metro station, with many restaurants close by. The facilities of the hotel are also excellent and clean, the spa center and the roof pool definitely worth a visit. Great breakfast buffet also. Wi-Fi didn't work though and using the... More
