“One word "FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2009

My stay at the Grand Hotel Gulsoy was a fantastic experience. The friendly staff made me feel very welcomed. The cleanliness made me feel like i was home as i am a very neat and tidy person. A great relaxation is what i really needed as i have a newborn and the spa and sauna facilities definitely gave me a great opportunity to do so. If i was to ever go back to Turkey, I'll be going back for a stay at the Grand Hotel Gulsoy for sure.

I spent a few nights at this great hotel a few weeks ago. it was fantastic!! the service was great, and i got to make great use of the pool and sauna which was very clean and well looked after. the rooms are beautiful, and the service is fantastic. they also have a great disco/bar in the evenings which makes the whole experience even more grand. also got to play some bowling where i met some other friendly people, all thanks to the hotel staff. i'd recommend this hotel to anybody - families, friends, singles, couples etc. the great location also makes it worthwhile.

Stayed August 2009, traveled on business

we were there last month as a family and we had such a great time. the service was excellent when we got there. the workers were very helpful. there was a receptionist named koray he introduced the hotel to us at the start. he was very helpfull with what we wanted. you will find anything you need in this hotel. we used to go play blliards or bowling after dinner. we had so much fun in the disco music was good. the pool and sauna is just great for relaxing vacationists. the rooms are very clean and room service is professionaly done.

July 2009 was my second time in Istanbul, and both times I stayed at the Grand Gulsoy Hotel. The staff are absolutely great, always helpful and nice. Whatever I needed, like an arranged trip, or finding a safe taxi, or anything, they were always at the reception, giving me the best service. The room was clean, the sheets and towels being changed every day. I had internet connection in the room (wi-fi). Breakfast was simple but enough for one meal. I had access to both pools, which was great, as I needed to rest after I walked around the city all day. Upstairs terrace and pool are brilliant for sun-bathing as well.If I'll go to Istanbul again (which I plan on doing next summer), I will surely go to the Grang Gulsoy Hotel again.

we stayed there for 7 nights.It was ok but room was small and noisy.if you want to stay in this hotel try to chose street side rooms because the windows open to a nice view of old masque.by chanse we find out.the hotel have night clup, swiming pool,bowling and barber for women those were the good points.the breakfast resturant wasgood .the bar is small but it looks to street. at the end i can say it is nice hotel.and it was good memory for me and my husband for the first travel to turky.

We stayed for 5 nights and although it wasn't really suitable for my husband who is disabled the staff could not have made our stay more comfortable.
Our room over looked the mosque which was all lit up at night and looked great. Again it wasn't really suitable for a disabled person as it had a bath but it was very clean and sheets and towels were changed daily.
Breakfast was the same every day which let them down but again the staff were clean and helpful.
The coffee shop was great. Lovely food and superb cakes!! This more than made up for breakfast. The staff here were the best we met on this trip to turkey.
We didn't really use any of the fascilities but went down to the small bowling alley and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Location was great for shopping and getting around.
This would not be rated 4* in England but it cannot be faulted for cleanleyness and great staff.

  • Liked — How clean everywhere was and mostly the staff.
  • Disliked — Not ideal for wheelchair users although possible and breakfast
