This hotel is very close to the blue mosque and hagia sofia. just under a 10min walk and a lovely walk too as you go through the streets of the old city. the room was spacious and clean. Only one complaint that we booked a double bed for sharing couple, but were instead given two single beds, which later the staff joined together as apparently they don't have double beds?! Special thanks to Vedat, Zelal and Hussain for their kindness and assisting us with helpful advice in getting around Istanbul. Mustafa K.

The hotel is located in a touristic area, but not the heart of the city. The room was excellent. The service was also very good, except for the fact that staff members were not fluent in English. The breakfast was acceptable, but the best thing (fresh orange juice) is charged separately.

Everytime i come to Istanbul, i stay in Gülhane Park Hotel. It' s a perfect Place to stay, close to
all tourist atractions, close to a very nice Park to relax, close to the seaside, Galata Bridge. The
Hotel is perfect for a family stay and the staff even gm is very kind and helpfull. If you look for a
Silent night in a big city like istanbul you made a good choice. The biig sunroof offers you in summer a nice breakfast and place to relax.

Our first stay in Istanbul... In the heart of "Old City", close to the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and the likes. Hotel itself is average, from the rooms to the breakfast... SPEACIAL Thanks to Zelal and the rest of the staff for for the wonderful service and assistance in getting us around Istanbul with ease...

We stayed 6 nights in this hotel. In the heart of old city and very close to main tourist sites! Clean and safe. Rooms were cleaned everyday and no personal things were lost. Breakfast was ok. Staff was 100% friendly and helpful. Than you Zelal, Kerim and Irfan and rest of the staff! :) Before our trip we send few emails and got an instant reply. Im looking forward to go back to Istanbul and for sure ill book a room again from Gülhane Park hotel. One of the best hotels where i have stayed during my trips around the europe.

It was my first trip to Istanbul and I picked the perfect location. The Hotel in the heart of the old town so we had no problems got get to all the tourist sites. The size of the room was okay and the room and the hotel was very clean.
I did not got any reply to my 2 emails I have sent before our arrival but the service during our stay was okay. The breakfast was very nice and tasty.
I would try to stay here again on my next trip to Istanbul if the price is okay.
Did not have the chance to check out in Spa but it looks nice.
