Good place to relax during sightseeing tour from all the surrounding places like Hagia Sophia etc. Regular Turkish cuisine but also fairly nice cake and coffee.

Good position. Nice pastries. A bit slow service. A pit stop while visiting the park. Deserves attention.

Just in case you think I write a lot of bad reviews - no, this is the only one of our trip. Three of us went for dinner, having noticed the attractive setting in a lovely, heritage-restored, park. We sat outdoors at a table with...three chairs. Our order was taken promptly and the drinks soon arrived. Fault number one: only two drinks, instead of three. Rectified. Food arrived, cheeseburger without......cheese. Fajitas without......tortillas/wraps. Fries cold and not fresh. Rectified eventually, no apology from serving staff, though a manager noticed the issue and said he would check what had happened. Didn't see him again. Just to add insult to injury (and against a continuous background of noise of staff rearranging tables and chairs by dragging them about, rather than lifting them) a young, brusque, waiter insisted on putting a fourth chair at our table for three. This involved him waving me away from the middle of the table, centrally opposite mya hotel. wife and daughter, so that he could put this chair at an empty place setting. Very odd - when he'd gone I simply moved it to one side again. On the plus side, the food was OK and was reasonably priced. But an overall awful experience - a great shame as the setting is superb. PS several of the reviews here refer to a hotel - this location is notMore

Right near all the hotels and places you want to see. Remember Turks love to smoke so choose your seats well.

I was really there for the view and a rest. The food selection was not great on the day I was there so I did not eat. The coffee was quite good.

Came here for lunch and ordered a royal chicken salad which was delicious and worth it! Service could do with some work, I was waiting around for ages and I did not get served for a long time. The food was lovely, it was a...shame about the customer service!More

Excellent location, quality value and service but its unique selling point is the location which gives you a wonderful view. This is where you will find peace and recuperation during your visit to Istanbul. Only 5 mins from the biggest highlights of Istanbul, this restaurant...has a big terrace overlooking the tranquil beautiful and huge park that was formerly the Sultan's rose garden for Topkapi Palace. As you eat you have a perfect view of the flowers, butterflies, parakeets swooping between the tall trees, the locals strolling and picnicking. The staff are lovely, the food was tasty - I especially recommend the Breakfast Plate at TL 22. We take all our meals here when in Istanbul.More

It is a lovely hotel clean, bedrooms are nice and spacious bathroom also good, Very friendly staff, near to all the attractions, tram service, you get a Istanbul card and top up to travel, THE ONLY BAD THING IS BREAKFAST, do not cater for UK,...continental No Tea only Turkish kava No omelette No scrambled eggs No Thin bread only thick Turkish ones No fresh fruit other than apple, and thinly cut orange, One pays for BB the only thing most people look for in morning is a GOOD variety of Breakfast. We are going to speak with Manager again to see if it can be improved....keep you updated If they start catering for western market in breakfast its a great Hotel. Staff are nice Yusaf, Osman, on desk and one more tour guide near Blue Mosque called Marco Polo Mr Nadir they are GREAT reasonable pricesMore

If you love istanbul and the turkish people like i do and enjoy their well know hospitality go to Gulhane Park Hotel and you won't be disappointed. The room & bathroom was very clean and a good size. The service especially from Mr Yusuf/Recetpion was...outstanding and professional and also from the gentlemen who is responsible for the luggage etc. The location is perfect to get to know this wonderful city by foot or by tram. Keep visiting this stunning city with great citizens and do not let the political movement hold you upMore

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
