I stayed in this hotel with my family 10 days, and this made me observe carefully the pros and cons of this hotel. From my point of view, the positive points surely exceeded the negatives. We really enjoyed our stay there mainly because we felt that we were welcomed by the staff. I would especially mention the lady of the reception "Maya" who guided us in our trips in Istanbul. There is also the guy who was standing by the door, he was always active, and the other reception guy who was very helpful.
For the rooms, they were very clean thanks to the chambermaids who were very kind and efficient at their job. Some rooms were somehow small but not in a very bad way. The air-conditioning sometimes was a problem but once we call the specialists everything goes smoothly.
The view from the hotel rooms is the best point of this hotel. It makes you feel like you are really in Istanbul since you could see all the beautifully designed mosques from your room. This is because the the hotel is located near the sea which gives its rooms a very very beautiful view in the morning and at night.
The neighbourhood was not from our interests as tourists because it was a plumbing/tool area, it was very busy during the day, and beautifully quiet at night which made us feel very safe to walk around at nights. 200 m from the hotel there was a very active street, a tunnel and a metro station which made transportation very easy for us.
- I have to thank all the staff who contributed in organizing a surprise birthday party for my brother, it was a memorable event that me and my family won't ever forget. Thanks a lot for your kindness :)
Finally, I would strongly recommend this hotel, we were very satisfied by the provided services and the quality of the Istanbul Golden City Hotel. Thanks a lot!
