I booked the hotel because the very good scores the hotel received were promising.

I stayed at Gulhane Park Hotel for 4 nights. At the end I was dissapointed because I expected more due to the very good scores. My score (1 = bad 10 = top) is as follows:

Room: Very small, but you do know that in advance, when you book in the Sulthanamet and more over in Sirkeci.

Bathroom: good fixtures, clean, water supply of good pressure, so all in all good, but way to dark. The light hardly is sufficient for doing make up and the likes. (8)

Room Service: Toilet paper, shower cap, tea bags.... used it once was never re-newed or re-filled. Night was chilly and in the first night I haven't had a warm cover. The next day I asked for a warm cover. It was laid on my bed - no sheets to cover! So clearly room service was not good (3)

Breakfast: The buffet had quite some choice. There was an attempt to serve as well cornflakes and the like. Not very satisfying. The warm dishes were looking weired (scrambled eggs nowhere). The turkish breakfast was good. I disliked the fact, that you had to pour your coffee out of a coffee where coffee was stocked. No freshly brewed coffee! The 'juice' in fact was lemonade. No fresh juice nowhere.This is inacceptable for a 4**** hotel! So score : (2)

Staff: One person on the reception spoke a decent english. The rest did not even understood english. So for language skills, which is a must in tourism this is clearly a (3).

Friendliness: Very friendly, very helpful people (10)

Location: on the corner of a street and a pedestrian area. Right on the backside of the wall to Gulhane Park. This is a very peaceful location for loud and noisy Istanbul. So location gets a (10) for peace and privacy, but a (7) for view.

All in all it was nice but this clearly is no 4**** hotel. So do not be mistaken and except too much!

Room Tip: All rooms face the street.

I had booked the hotel for my wife and two friends through the hotels own website which proved to be cheaper than any of the online agencies last December. When I sent an e-mail just before departure to confirm flight details I received a reply within hours with the name and telephone number of the driver who would be at the airport upon arrival. The car and driver are both from the hotel so no worries about taxi's.

At check in the reception staff were friendly and helpful and the process done quickly and efficiently.
The triple room was very clean and spacious with all the usual facilities of tea & coffee maker etc. plus TV, fridge and mini bar.

The hotel facilities and staff were all excellent and meals at both the breakfast and rooftop restaurant were very good. The private car transfers to and from Ataturk Airport are not expensive and problem free using the hotels own driver and car.

The hotel is well situated for all the major attractions of Sultanahmet which are within easy walking distance, also tram and ferry connections for trips further afield.

As regular visitors to the city the hotel was clean efficient and very well run and certainly recommended for any stay in Istanbul.

Location is great. All sites are practically walking distance. The staff are wonderful especially Vedat on the reception desk. He made us feel extremely welcome and was always on hand for any help we needed. Very knowledgeable of the surrounding area as well.

The hotel is neat, clean and tidy and despite being in what appears to be quiet and secluded, is actually extremely close to all parts of the old city and its sites. We walked to all the sites without trouble.

Highly recommended especially as the service so good. Will certainly go again. Thanks once more to Vedat.
