Stuff was very helpful and kind
April 3, 2015
I visited Istanbul with my husband in March 2015. We were staying in Gul Sultan Hotel for 4 nights. We are fully satisfied our staying. The staff was always polite, kind, friendly and regardful, thank you, guys! We asked to organize a private pick-up service from the airport, and everything was well organized, we have got to the hotel in 20 minutes after leaving the Ataturk airport. The only one moment that can disturb some people is an active night life near the hotel. Sometimes music from restaurants is loud, it might be a disturbing moment for the persons with sensitive sleeping. We have no problems with sleeping so it didn't disturb us, we slept very well after long walks in Istanbul streets. But you can take advantage from this moment - you may have fun right near the hotel=) When you enter the hotel you feel the smell of cleanness, I liked it at once. The room was compact and very cozy. The bedclothes was always new, clean and fresh, as the towels in the bedroom. There was a TV with a lot of channels, a fridge, a hairdryer - everything worked well. Breakfasts are tasty: tea, coffee, eggs, sausages, vegetables, cheese, yogurts, pastries, fresh bread, jams, corn flakes - everybody can find something he likes. Beautiful view from the terrace on the upper floor. This hotel gives you a perfect quality for a reasonable price. We will be happy to stay here during our next visit to Istanbul! It was a great time!

Very nice small hotel , close to everything. The staff was really kind and helpfull. When I arrived I had a problem with the driver and the receptionist spoke to him and solved it. He even carried my heavy luggage to the room. The room is on the small size, but has everything you need. Comfy bed and perfect windows, no noise coming from the street. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. I will return here for sure!

Street can be noisy at night, but once you close your windows, it was no problem at all.
The hotel is perfectly situated to visit all the majour Istanbul sights. Breakfast was delicious - especially the omelettes cooked on demand! Rooftop terrace had wonderful views of the Blue Mosque, Haggia Sophia and the Bospherus.

Street noise at night, however, once asleep you don't notice it. Noise came from restaurants. However this was really a plus as I didn't like the idea of walking alone down dark alleys by myself after my evening meal, the restaurants were all right outside Gull Sultan.
Reception staff were friendly and very helpful.

Noisy at night due to surrounding facilities and late-nighters returning to rooms.
Clean, well-kept cosy. VG breakfast.

The street where the hotel is located is a bit noisy at night due to the bars in the area, especially during the weekend and if your room is facing the main road.
Central location, minutes from the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque and near some nice bars and restaurant. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Shower setup is a bit small in the bathroom, can be enlarge
Excellent view with nice room, high speed wifi, very good associate and close to the blue mosque, haga Sophia and topkapi. No need to hire any taxi, 5 minutes walking distance. And the breakfast is just yummy. Me and my husband enjoyed staying here. We wish the team a very good luck. Next time will come here again.

Pefect positioned for visiting by walking many objectives: Sultan Ahmet Square (10 minutes); Blue Mosque (10 min) , Hagia Sofia (10 min) , Topkapi Palace (10 minutes) and all others arround: Grand Bazar 15-20 minutes walking; Galata Bridge 20-25 minutes walking. The hotel is located on a streets full with very nice restaurants/ pubs/ terraces. The staff is very frendly; the room is small but very clean, towels changed every day, sheet evry 2 days.

Some basic provisions like drinking water facility, coffee/tea making facilities in the room would have given value for the rate charged. In fact, the existence of these would have made me rate the hotel really excellent.
The location was very central to the places if interest in Istanbul. Access to reasonable eateries was very good. The staff were very courteous and helpful.

Hotel is very well located on a busy street which depending on the room location could be noisy. Ask for upper floor or rear of building if you are sensitive to street life sounds...
Excellent location (1 block from FourSeasons) and good English speaking assistance in the reception both day and night. Extensive breakfast in a very comfortable environment.

Nothing, it was fine for us and what we wanted.
The location was wonderful...you can see the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia from the terrace while you eat your breakfast. The Topkapi castle is at the end of the street....all the cafés and bars you need are at the doorstep. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The lady who prepares breakfast is wonderful and goes out of her way to assist you and cook fresh French toast and of let's and other treats daily. Wifi is good and rooms are clean.

There is no lift ... But only ground plus two floors...and they will carry. Your luggage. It can get noisy we hear but we had no problem .... Highly recommend staying here
Located within sight of Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi castle....... Heaps of restaurants and places to chill at your doorstep. Staff very helpful...we had to cancel a flight and they handled that for us as well as our transfer to the airport..... Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was just lovely....fruits meats fresh bread omelet, sausages, French toast, spreads, dried fruits, fresh fruits, cereals juice etc.... Really good...the lady preparing breakfast is just wonderful. View from the terrace is great.....recommend it very much

There was very little natural light in my room and no easy chair to sit in.
The hotel, situated within a stone's throw of the major tourist attractions, was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was varied and copious. My room located at the back of the hotel was quiet.
