Grand Hotel Gulsoy in the Fatih District, Istanbul carries a 4-star designation. It is located in the Fatih district of Old Istanbul right next to the Sultan Mehmed Mosque. The location is in a buy street with strings of restaurants within one block of the hotel. The first night we statyed at the hotel was a disaster, as we were trying to recoup from jet lag. At 4:45 AM the following morning, the public address system of the mosque blared out the announcement of the muslim prayer at the Mehmed Mosque. Needless to say, we were quite annoyed, but could not do anything about it. We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, and it could get quite noisy at night because of the amount of traffic that flows in the street where the hotel is located. The twin beds that were put together to make a double bed needed some anchoring. Our "double bed" moved away from each other in the middle of the night, and it proved to be quite an experience.
This hotel is also about ten minutes walk from the Sultan Sulayman Mosque, one of the bigger mosque in Istanbul. The restaurant and the food are quite adequate,but not great. There are doner kebab shops literally next door. One big problem occured when we tried to print our our boarding passes for our flight out of Istanbul. If you want to check in line, don't attempt to print out your airline boarding pass from this hotel. Their protocol and policy of printing out boarding boarding passes is horrendously problematic expecially if you cannot read Turkish. Suggest that you check in line but get your boarding pass at the airport. Saves you a great deal of hazzle.
