“Happy Birthday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Excellent service. As I celebrated my 75 year birthday the friendly staff had made a big cake for me and my Family. They took Pictures and sang 'Happy Birthday to you'.
The place should apply for a wine license, so I guess that the restaurant would have more guests.
Exeææent food there.

Thank you to all the staff at The Golden Horn Hotel for making our stay in Instanbul a memorable one, especially the front of house staff for your time in organizing our trips and in general conversation making us feel at home. I loved happy hour in the afternoon with Turkish tea and cakes in the opulent setting of the foyer and background Turkish music.
Best wishes

Stayed at The Golden Horn having arrived by bike from Thessalonikki. Friendly and helpful staff- even found somewhere to store the bikes whilst we explored Istanbul by foot.
Look out for happy hour in the afternoon - free tea and cake each afternoon.

It was rather good hotel with a great location (a few minutes walking to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Bosphorus), friendly & polite staff (special thanks to Gayaz, Guest Relation Manager). Rooms are comfortable, perfect breakfast in the restaurant with a nice view. Overall a nice impression, good atmosphere, and i was really satisfied with my stay in this hotel. I will come back again to the Golden Horn Hotel with a great pleasure. Jasem.

We had a great time at the hotel. Hotel location was perfect! The staff were very cooperative and helpful. Most of the staff were speaking good English and Arabic well. This made the communication very easy with them.
I will definitely consider the hotel when I visit Turkey again.

Rooms and bathrooms quite small. Definitely not four star that we are accustomed to, however location is ideal. It was warm n relatively clean n comfy but there was a constant stale odour that filled the hotel. Breakfast was good, cant say the same for dinner unfortunately. We chose to eat out most nights. There is alot of maintenance and construction happening in this hotel.
