My wife and I (and our 6-year old son) stayed in this hotel for 9 days. We were looking for some place not so expensive so we feel comfortable planning 2-day excursions without checking out. GH offered a very reasonable price for a very comfortably sized room, and we went to Princes' Islands and stayed overnight without feeling too bad about double booking that night. (On a side note, I do recommend going to islands for overnight stays, as they are very nice). The room was stylish, clean and comfortable with all major required facilities. There was water leak from shower due to a design issue but it was not a big deal as there was water drain right next to it on the floor. The hotel staff were helpful, friendly and polite. The food was very good, offering nice samples of Turkish cuisine. If yo are not a food explorer, you can comfortably dine in the hotel without feeling you have lost much, although I don't recommend that as Istanbul has MANY great places to eat. The hotel is located in walking distance of great restaurants at different price levels. It is also very close to most major tourist attractions like Sultan Ahmet square, Bazar, etc. Similar to many Istanbul hotels, there is no gym or swimming pool. Overall, strongly recommended.
