Perfect Hotel for budget travel, excellent service and helpful staff. The hotel is perfectly located as you can get to most of sultanahmet monuments within 5 minutes walk.

I Highly recommend it.

I had a nice stay here for three days. The hotel is located exactly in the heart of old city, within 3 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and Ayasophia. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel rooms are nice and clean, though not up to three star hotel standard in Asia. There are numerous restaurants and cafes on the same street, as well as laundry shop and convenient shops. Good choice for budget stay.

I had just few days in Istanbul. Gul Sultan was fairly priced compare to others, right at the heart of tourist attractions Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topeka Palace. Place was clean and breakfast was great. I travel now and then and most of the time get to stay at the high end hotels. Compare to what I paid at this place, breakfast was good and had Turkish touch to it. I would definitely recommend this place for fellow travelers. Oh Yes! in the weekends, music can get louder at the street below. But it was nice music going on. Ocean view from the roof top was plus as well. My two thumbs up to Istanbul and Gul Sultan Hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed at the second floor facing towards the main street and the room was nice.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Hamit is an incredibly hospitable host. The room was spotless and the breakfast was excellent! Yes there is no elevator but the staff are more than happy to help with your bags. The location is excellent and we had no problems with noise. The hotel next door looked crowded and this was far more peaceful. Hamit even looked after our bags after we checked out and went out to visit Selcuk for two days. On return he made sure that we found our way to the airport without any problems. Would definitely recommend this little spot!

As a first impression the staff where very friendly, helpful and the room very clean.
What I've liked when I chose this hotel was the positioning and the fact that everybody had good feedback regarding the help that you will get, which became true.
Please take in consideration that is a 3* Hotel and if you are using it just for the night and for resting during the day, this is just perfect.
You want some information about the sites? Just ask! People will be very kind to help you
You want to go in a cruise? Just ask! People will be very kind to help you
You want to go back to the airport without head eaks? ;) Yap...you've got the point

So from my side...5* rating for what they promises as a 3* hotel

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Thanks for all of them. Although the street was noisy, but in the same time was entertaining. The hotel is central, very near to an interesting places.
unfortunately, No elevator (only 3 floors),
The same breakfast every day.

I'm not too picky, and I am a sound sleeper. But when there is raucous music and revelers from the cafes directly below and across this hotel that lasts until 1 am (even on weeknights!), it is impossible to get a good night's sleep.

That being said, the people were helpful, and the breakfast was great.

Room Tip: Perhaps better if you aren't facing the street, but we had a triple and they all face the street
