“Great hotel, great location”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I had the pleasure of recently staying in the Golden City Hotel and enjoyed it very much. The hotel rooms are a comfortable size and have nice bathrooms and showers. The staff is very friendly and most of the reception speak good enough English to help give directions or restaurant recommendations.

The view from the rooftop restaurant is spectacular. It is easily one of the most stunning views I saw in all of Istanbul. It has a gorgeous view of the Golden Horn (river) and the Hagia Sophia, along with other huge, beautiful mosques. Though it's a long walk, the hotel is close enough to walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia; otherwise it is a quick cab ride.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Istanbul. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would love to go back sometime.

this hotel was a great way to start our family vacation. Located close to tourist areas and the port was really helpful for us, first time Istambul tourists. Once we got to our room a saw what beautiful view we had, se fell in love with Istanbul. The breakfast in the rooftop was the cherry on top. The staff was very friendly, accomodating and helpful. highly recommended and oggetti.ritrovati@alitalia.it will go back.

We stayed here in the first week of June. It was a clean and comfortable hotel with all the necessary facilities. Most imp being wi-fi when you are travelling with kids !!The view from our rooms was beautiful as they faced the Bosphorus and the Galata bridge. The night view was spectacular.We were on the eighth floor.The breakfast layout was good ,the attendants attentive and the muezzins' call every morning was our wake up call .Will definitely recommend anyone to stay here !!!

The staff at the terrace restaurant was extremely courteous, were happy to answer my children's repeated questions on what was vegetarian in the menu and what was not.
The reception was very courteous and even though we had an early checkout ...they had packed a breakfast hamper for us .Thanks a ton Golden City !!!

Room Tip: the higher floors have a beter view

I stayed here for a week (first week in June) and its a very clean comfortable hotel within easy access to all the main attractions in the Sultan Ahmed district and Fatih. Its in the middle of a builders merchants area but don't let that put you off as taxi's are cheap. fantastic views from the restaurant at night. From the tenth floor you can see over the river and have excellent panoramic views of the bridges and the Galata tower. Very good food in the restaurant at night time and an excellent wide ranging continental breakfast including many traditional Turkish items such as halva. The staff were very friendly and welcoming especially Ali and Maya on the front desk. Nothing was too much trouble and they are a great source of knowledge and advice. the weather was a bit hit and miss so needed to plan activities. Room was spotlessly cleaned every day and double glazing does a good job of keeping out the traffic noise.
Cons - small lifts, and no cafe's in the immediate vacinity, and wifi was intermittent, however i would definately recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If possible try and get a room with a view mine was on the side and nothing to see except for a very...

Dear Mr. Bevan,

First of all i want to thank you for sharing your reviews with other tripadvisor followers.
We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at ouor hotel.
The area outside the hotel will be changed soon, and our lifts are small because our building is historical and we can't change things like these.
We would be very happy if we can host you and your mother again at out hotel on your next Istanbul trip.
