Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is very well located for all the tourist attractions in the Sultanamet area. You are within walking distance of everything. The hotel owner / manager was friendly and helpful - and quickly changed our rooms when we pointed out that we were not in the rooms we booked. The breakfast was average (Covid) and the rooms are rather dated - but clean and fresh.

we stayed at the Gulhanepark hotel for seven nights during our christmas holidays and we were very satisfied.
the location of the hotel is fantastic in the heart of monumental istanbul a stone's throw from everything.
The room was spacious enough and with all the amenities, the bathroom well equipped and very clean.
Exquisite Turkish-style breakfast full of many special dishes.
A special mention must be made regarding the staff
who has always been very kind and very helpful to us.
Thanks to Yilmaz for the help in purchasing tickets for the Efes Maccabi basketball match, we had a great time.
We remained very satisfied at Gulhane and will be back
if you want to try you won't be disappointed.

Perfectly located near Hagya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Cistern Basilica and the tram stop, this hotel looks a bit old fashioned despite a freshly renovation. Rooms are poorly sunproofed, so it can be quite annoying, sold with balcony but it's only a door window you can open....Comfy bed but the pillow is hard as rock, new shower well equipped, kettle, mini bar empty, so nothing special to be remembered. A boring and tasteless breakfast, fried eggs usually cold ( we stayed there 6 nights ), no good croissants, pastries, no good cheese, even tea was too strong for enjoying it. We got a free pass for the spa, but the unfriendly woman in charge of it, won't push you to come a second time. This hotel is definitely overrated in terms of price and services, and must be ranked in 3 star hotel and not 4...

When we got to the hotel we were pleased with the hotel as it was value for our money. Facilities and location are great. And the workers were friendly but omg the manager was so rude and aggressive . I travelled with my husband and kids and my husband is a very friendly guy . He will tip generously and always like to buy food for workers. On one of the days the manager was extremely rude about me using the bitaxi app. He wanted to book our taxis for us but we would pay him but he kept giving us ridiculous prices not knowing that we have visited Istanbul few times and know how much taxi charge so my husband told him that he was over charging us and the manager exploded and started to shout and get defensive in front of my kids. We ignored him and walked off so he started to shout from behind . Then on the next day my son broke a glass in the room which we told them straight away and even though we know we Dnt have to pay we said we were happy to pay at a reasonable cost. But the manager decided that he would charge us 200 liras for it we said we will pay 100 liras and even that we think it’s a lot but it’s fine he wouldn’t agree and start shouting so we requested a receipt or invoice so we can pay this. Again he start shouting at us. In the end we did pay because my children were feeling scared and we didn’t want to spoil their holiday but I will never ever stay there again!

If you are visiting istanbul , try to avoid this hotel , or check carefully for alternatives
I reached the hotel with my family at night , met with receptionist ( zaki ) who refuse to checking me in until i pay extra charges for my daughter which is around 50% from room rate !!!! Even when it says on my booking this charges against extra bed which did not get it until next day . As booking customer , booking sent me asking about my stay , i put my comments , while i was coming to hotel to pick my luggage , i found the hotel GM is asking me why did i put a bad comment about his hotel , i said to him that was my opinion about my stay . Then he called me a lier three times . And he said to me clearly " i am telling you in a front of your family YOU ARE LAIR " . I replied with no comment to him and i left the hotel shocked from that attitude
I never seen such a bad behavior from hotel manager and as an traveler expert such an attitude should be highlighted .

An absolute dump.
A bed with no top sheet and scratchy blanket. Pillows so old and lumpy you wonder where they've been.
Bloody snot on the bathroom wall
Very sub-par breakfast spread (for Turkey, if you've never had a breakfast buffet in Istanbul you'll probably be satisfied but very poor!)
Told the staff about the bed issues and asked they probably make it up with newer sheets - 2 of them! And pillows with no satisfaction. Mattress terribly uncomfortable.

Ended up leaving at my cost after 2 nights out of 5 because it was wrecking my holiday! Seriously. That bad.

Istanbul has great hotels at this price point. This is way, way bad.

Gym consist of broken 50 yr old stationary bike and broken weight machine! In airless room of course.

Literally moved to a place 4 mins walk away that was 5x better as is expected in Istanbul.

BTW, those linens where so bad I went to the linen market and bought my own to make it better but still couldn't overcome that crap mattress.

The name has spa and park in it. Lol. My view a construction site but they can't control that - misleading

Never ever visiting again. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone… Treated us a family very poorly, staff were rude and have no customer service skills. On top of that, it was VERY unsafe. Balcony was ready to fall off so couldn’t even let the kids go out on the balcony…

it's not a 4 star hotel it's more like a minus 4 star. Location is good but had nothing but bother here. Breakfast was awful would rather eat dog food. Do not book unless you want to waste money and have the worst experience.
