“right location, right size, right feel. just right!”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

This is a very pleasant city centre hotel. Modern, stylish , well appointed, well run. Lots of good points - great staff, lovely quiet room, well designed and thought through. Decor lovely and no signs of shabbiness or wear and tear. Great shower, lovely bed. All good. Breakfast served in a light airy dining room. The hotel never feels crowded - thought it was full when we stayed.
Slight niggles - there is a switch in the room for do not disturb light outside (like that) but housekeeping still DO disturb!! also toiletries and towels were not replaced in my room. They do bring spares very quickly - but just a bit irritating.
But all in all, just easy and very pleasant. Good value for such a great location and just small enough so it has a good feel. it is nothing stunning or outstanding (apart from the spa which is particularly lovely) but then it is not super pricey or making claims to high end luxury. perfect for a good central location, modern, easy going, easy to stay in hotel. no problems at all. can recommend

I spent 2 nights in this hotel and I would recommend it to all business travellers. Modern interiors, good restaurant, easy access to center and airport, Bosphor view. But for romantic weekend i would live in the historic center.

We stayed in the hotel for one week, the rooms are clean and modern with a nice view but not too spacious.The hotel is located in a walking distance to Taksim square and to the Bosphorus , making it highly accessible. The breakfast is good and fresh but the variety is not great. The staff are very friendly and give you personal attention. The hotel is more business than family style.
Overall, our stay was great and the hotel was just perfect for our trip since in istanbul you rarely spend time in the hotel!

Fairly well located near Taksim. rooms were "design" influcenced, but definitely nothing to write home about. Not sure why they are part of the Design Hotels group. Room I had (801) was woefully inadequate for workign at a desk and fairly small. Lighting fiztures do not connect, meaning you have to walk around and find which switch controls what. Also, the bedroom/desk area is very underlit... hard to work in. Window should have a sheer cover, not just a black-out, so you can have light, but not be watched on by passersby. Service was very friendly and attentive, pretty flawless actually. However, F&B is very average. They need more of a cool bar scene, which they do not. Food was also very average. I didn;t want "Mediterranean", so opted for miore turkish style... but they had no flat bread (even though they made an effort to toast ciabatta).

Reviewed 7 October 2012

Note: The following review was based on a trip to Istanbul during April of 2012.

I looked up GHB on Trip Advisor after HOURS of research and numerous phone calls to helpful people in Istanbul. Apart from the fact that the rate proved to be perfect where our budget was concerned, I was EXTREMELY impressed with the excellent reviews, photos (which I cross-referenced with Booking.Com and the hotel's own website) and -MOST IMPORTANTLY- the fact that each and every review was followed up by a comment from the GHB's management! So I immediately thought "now there is a hotel that leaves nothing to chance" ... PERFECT!

My opinion was further validated when I received an email from Ms. Dilhan Gokman (Director of Guest Relations) welcoming us in advance and assuring me of her willingness to help in planning our daily activities. Her prompt replies to my e-mail inquiries with regards the best restaurants and sights was extremely gratifying!

We had asked for an airport pickup , which turned out to be a comfortable, branded, spacious van driven by Yashir (A very nice and professional gentleman who went out of his way to direct us to the nicest places).

Our reception at the hotel was nothing short of welcoming! We were each presented with a small silver tray bearing a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice, a delicious piece of dark chocolate and 30% discount vouchers for facial treatments at the hotel's Silver Spa. WOW!

The hotel itself is GORGEOUSLY MODERN and beautifully laid out! The bathroom is superb with an AMAZING power shower and Molton Brown amenities. (God I miss this shower!)

The ONLY negative feedback which I immediately relayed to Ms. Gokman was the housekeeping! I've stayed in many hotels and I'm quite OCD where cleanliness is concerned! Yet, OCD or not … the professionalism of the housekeeping was an issue. I should point out that the rooms were NOT filthy! But they were definitely not conscientiously made up. Yet, it was obvious that it was more of a discrepancy in the cleaning individual's training and experience rather than a hotel policy.

My comments were immediately rewarded with a more experienced cleaner handling our rooms and a sincere apology from management. I suspect that things will be sorted out after having had this issue pointed out.

Do go to this hotel ... it really made our stay in Istanbul a memorable one! We had a choice between a Bosphorus view and a national park view ... we took the latter and absolutely loved it!

This hotel is a winner and I look forward to staying there again!

Many Thanks to Ms. Gokman, Yashir and the rest of the staff!

A small gem perched on hill top with excellent views.
Our corner room provided panoramic view of the Bosphorus plus Gezi park on the other side. Good clean room with excellent bathroom. Turkish hammam, spa and gym facilities are superb. My wife chose to spend two full mornings at the spa and Turkish baths instead of sightseeing. Staff was friendly and helpful and provided good service and advice. As a boutique hotel I would recommend it for its facilities, service and superb location, being few minutes walk from Taksim square from where you can take all kinds of transportation to visit/view Istanbul.
