Very good hotel, amazing location, close to all main attractions. Staff were very friendly and their restaurant has a great view. We stayed there for a total of 5 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Breakfast was included and It was quite varied. Good quality food, a good mixture of turkish/ European breakfast choices.

We stayed for a week for our anniversary trip to Istanbul and the staff were very kind and caring; service was always great and attentive. The hotel was clean and pleasant, the breakfast was exceptionally enjoyable and the views were lovely. The hotel is in a great location where all attractions for tourists are local and easy to get to. Would definitely recommend as the stay for the price was great. Thank you for the pleasant experience! (Aldo)

We choose this hotel because of its location and view of golden horn and we were not wrong. The location can't be better, walking distance to metro, tram & ferry stations. Old city, istiklal street, galata tower & bridge are also so close. Though the hotel is located on a street where there are many shops selling hardware, the street is completely safe even in the latest hours of midnight. We had a room with a sea view on the 9th floor which had a breathtaking view of the golden horn & suleymaniye mosque. Rooms are a little bit small but comfortable. Room service ok but they forgot to recharge our coffee/tea in room on a couple of days during our stay. Excellent breakfast is served on the rooftop restaurant with a fabulous view of the golden horn. Everyday they had some new items for breakfast. Staff are very polite and helpful. Almost everything is perfect with this hotel except that rooms are not sound proof, and you may wake up by barking dogs in the middle of the night or sound of Azan early in the morning. Considering the price range and location/view of this hotel, it is one of the best choices for a tourist trip to Istanbul.

Very nice view. 2 min walk to Kalij Metro station. Located in Golden Horn. Near by the Galata bridge and Ataturk bridge. 2 Metro station (5 min) to Taksim station. Nice reception men. Resturant won 2014 best hotel of TripAdvisor. Small rooms but overaly very good hotel.

We had a great stay at this hotel, the manager Ali was very friendly and always asked if we needed anything. The rooftop breakfast was amazing. The view from my room was beautiful. I would definitely recommend it and would go again.

The terrace restaurant (breakfast bar by morning, fine dining restaurant after 12.30pm) has great views over the Bosphorus. The breakfast has a wide variety of food (both hot and cold). Hotel staff from reception to waitresses are helpful and friendly. The rooms are decent sized and clean. The shower is huge and has got good pressure and temperature.

We had a layover in Istanbul and wanted to see something else than just the airport. We booked Golden City Hotel for a night and had a pleasant stay. The room offered great views over Istanbul. The staff was really friendly and welcoming. As we had a really early flight they even arranged an early breakfast for us. Thank you so much! Really recommendable. Next time in Istanbul this will be our choice.

Had a 5 nights stay for my first trip to Istanbul. Room was not too big in size but clean and cozy, modern bathroom, comfortable bed and with a view towards the historic peninsula (Eminönü, Galata Bridge, Atatürk Bridge, Süleymaniye Mosque etc) which is splendid by day and breathtaking by night! The restaurant on the rooftop, where you have breakfast or dinner, is the perfect place to start the day. Delicious breakfast with plenty of choices (cold and hot), typical of Turkish hospitality. Friendly staff, very good location, close to bus/tram, main attractions. As a minus I would mention the sometimes poor/slow internet connection, no parking lots and the street where the hotel is located didn't seem too safe at night. All in all, very good.

Polite and helpful staff. The hotel breakfast was excellent. Wonderful restaurants beautiful scenery. The hotel reception staff were very kind, especially Ali Yilmaz. There was no kettle in our room on the 6th floor and I think this is a bad thing, however, was free tea in the lobby. The metro station (haliç)is very close to hotel. The street where the hotel is located,is not Interesting and this street is too dark at night. The price of lunch or dinner in the restaurant of this hotel is logical and normal. The restroom was very clean .... anyway this hotel was ok .
