I used this hotel as part of a tour through Gate1 Travel. The hotel location is close to all the main attractions in Turkey. The subway station was within walk in distance. Istanbul is a city easy to navigate. Hotel is next to a mosque so the call of prayer was quite interesting. Management was great with an issue my... More

Had a one night stay here on the way to a cruise. This was booked through the trip company. The room is smallish but very nice. The reception is helpful and friendly. Booked a massage for hour and half later. Was able to pay to for it later. The location is good. Close to the grand bazaar. Just take the... More

What you see on the pictures is not what you get. If you think that the hamman is old and stylish as in the pictures, you are wrong!!! Nothing can be charged to the room. Everything is chash based. My no smoking room, smelled awfully.

Despite some initial teething difficulties with lack of response to e-mails and phone calls we very much enjoyed our stay here 4 Nights in a great bustling location and a 10 minute tram ride from the typical tourist spots.

We stayed in the Grand Hotel Gulsoy several days before and after a tour of Turkey. Pros: Comfortable, nice sized rooms with lots of windows and very adequate bathroom. Good service with very accommodating staff. Little café/patisserie next to the lobby. Near Valens Roman Aqueduct. Cons: location is west of all the main attractions and not really walkable. Tram station... More

The Gulsoy is very comfortable, well kept up, and handy to tram public transportation. The hotel has 2 pools, one on the roof and one inside in the spa area. Inside rooms are quiet and windows open into a small, but nicely maintained courtyard. Windows are double glass to minimize outside noise. The morning breakfast buffet is extensive and excellent....

My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Gulsoy in Istanbul in April 2104. We weren't looking for anything luxurious since were weren't planning on being in the room a lot. So if it's a high end hotel you're seeking, don't go here. If you're looking for a hassle free transfer to the hotel from the airport, give this... More

The staff were nice, the rooms were more than adequate. If you get a room on the front, it can be a bit on the loud side, but you trade the noise for a great view of the mosque across the street and you can enjoy all the street activity. The widows open for fresh air, but block the outside... More
