I got to Gul Sultan on the bounce! Our first choice property, across the street from GS, wasn't available. So they accommodated us here. And in hindsight it worked out well. Nice, neat rooms, pleasant staff, great location...just the perfect place for all those looking to enjoy the historic and cultural side of Istanbul.

Very good hotel in historical part of Istanbul. Сlean hotel rooms and good breakfast. Amazing view opens from the roof of the hotel. Nice hotel for a good price. The most thing that I liked - care and good attitude of the hotel owner.

Will definitely return here. Close to all major sites & tram. Safe area with huge choice of Restaurants on same street. The touts hassle a bit, but you can detour slightly to avoid walking up the street. Staff were helpful & pleasant. My only comment would be that a tea tray in the room would have been appreciated!!

Within about 100 feet of the door, there are a variety of restaurant options as well as two tourist information centers/agencies. The rooms were incredibly clean and very well designed. Beyond all of this, Hamit (the owner) is incredibly nice and helpful. He corresponded... More

Stayed in Gul Sultan for 4 nights at a very affordable price.. the staff at reception were very friendly and gave quite a bit of information about the city.. the tours to take etc.. the rooms were cleaned everyday and towels changed.. the location is just perfect - just a 5-7 minute walk to Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi...
