    Excellent location, just 5 minutes to Ayia Sofia. Although the hotel is situated at a road (Akbiyik Caddesi) full of cafes and restaurants with the windows closed the room is very quiet (even when the nearby mosque's sound system is activated). Regardless of the hotel, the neighbourhood is ideal for tourists because of its proximity to main sites such as Ayia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Sultanahmet tram station. Free wifi in every room.

    Poor breakfast. Terrace with magnificent view to Bosphorus but not fully furnished and decorated. Room without shutters or dark colored curtains. This could be a problem for early birds. Wifi not available in the breakfast lounge.

    Great position to visit city. Positioned in a full life street, 5 min walking from aghia sophia and blue mosque, 15 from galata bridge. Good breakfast. Staff support you in tour or any request. Very fast wifi.

    Nightly staff not perfect.

    Clean and cosy hotel. Convenient location, close to Cankurtaran train station and Sultanahmet tram stop. Very good hotel staff.

    The breakfast is rather poor (but for me it was ok). The hotel is situated on the touristic street with bars and restaurants, so it can be noisy a little bit in the evenings.

    The stuff is very friendly and is trying to help you, the rooms are not large but the bathrooms and clean and quite roomy. Good location - walking distance from major sightseeing attractions. This part of town is filled with restaurants and cafes.

    Basically, you should be prepared to the fact that you don't have breakfast included. The quality and the quantity of food is very poor. The street is quite noisy

    Gul Sultan is an absolutely fantastic family-run-holtel, in a fantastic place (3 min walking from Topkapi Saray, Blue Mosque, and Haya Sophia) with fantastic staff and service ! Highly recommended for everyone ! We will return very soon - and only to Gul Sultan. Thank you for everything, dear Hamit !

    Perfect location, nice price / value ratio and really helpful staff!

    Sometimes a bit noisy since the street where the hotel located is full of clubs and restaurants but it's an advantage at the same time because you don't have to walk too long to find to a place to eat, drink or to have a party.
