We stayed at the Gulhane Park Hotel from 17 - 21 June 2013.The hotel is in a great location just minutes walk away from many of the major attractions of the old city, yet quiet at night. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially Vedat on reception. The room was clean but very small - there was nowhere to sit and there was not much room for storage. We asked for twin beds but got a double which meant disturbed sleep. Also there were tea/coffee making facilities but only tea and coffee provided on the first night. Other than that we had a great time in Istanbul and would recommend the city and it's people to anybody.

I booked this hotel twice in June 2013, (11 to 13 and 22 to 26). I, my wife and daughter liked it so much. the breakfast was excellent and many options. Staff are so friendly and helpful and I would like specially to thank VEDAT KONUK and BAYRAM, they are so nice and the smiles is always in their faces. Hotel is clean and comfortable and everything is beside your location, just 5 min walking.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny

Gülhane Park Hotel is in a perfect location for a city trip. Very helpful and friendly staff, special thanks to Zelal at the reception. We had a great time in Istanbul. The Hotel is near a lot of historic sites of Istanbul and near public transportation (Tram/Metro).

We stayed at the Gulhane Park Hotel for a week in April this year. The staff were very friendly and the location of the hotel is excellent for visiting all the Sultanahmet historic attractions. It was wonderful to have an early morning stroll in Gulhane Park - the tulips were just beautiful at that time of the year!
Around the corner is Sirkeci (the beautiful old station building) where we could see the Whirling Dervishes show and the hotel is walking distance from where we took the Bosphorus cruise and visited the Spice Market near where the ferries depart for the Asian side and Princes' Islands.
Overall an excellent choice to stay in Istanbul.

You can see part of the Gulhane park (previously part of the famous Top Capii palace) Tea garden, Blue mosque other historic attractions are walking distance, also Gulhane metro station is near. Old and very small rooms. you can hardly walk. price are suitable especially for family type of travelers.

Room Tip: Garden view is nicer than the car parking

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.
