Food and ambience
The hotel is in a good location, near to most of the major sights and has a metro stop 5 minutes away and a tram stop 10 minutes away, which can take you to the other parts of the city. It’s also easy to get to from the new Istanbul Airport. The shuttle coach from platform 8 takes you to Yenikapi, which also has a metro stop. From here it’s one stop to Vezneciler which is up the street from the hotel. The area feels safe and is busy but not super crowded like other parts of the city. The hotel is very nice, with helpful staff, large comfortable rooms, big breakfast selection and a great pool and spa - it’s free from opening until 5pm, then after that you have to pay. Also bring a swim cap or you will have to buy one.
The hotel is located across the road from a mosque, which isn’t the problem, more like the Imam calling people to prayer at around 5.30am every morning. My room was on the front of the Hotel and got the full brunt of the prayer through the tannoy, so be prepared. I think this is something that should be stated by the hotel. The WiFi is also inconsistent and quite slow at times.
The stuff are not talking good english and we had problems with the payment because of that and the windows where very dirty.
The Grand Hotel Gulsoy offers guests upscale accommodations near the Suleymaniye Mosque. Travelers will be impressed with the many amenities provided by the hotel including an indoor pool with two poolside bars. A full-service spa with a steam room can also be enjoyed. Bicycle rentals are available on site, there are barbecue grills available for guest use, and the hotel can provide in-room childcare for an additional charge. The front desk staff is available 24-hours per day, and they can assist guests in Arabic, English, and Turkish. Parking is available for a daily charge.
There are 138 rooms spread among five floors. Each of the guestrooms contains air conditioning to keep guests comfortable. Plus, there are minibars, coffee makers, and fireplaces provided. The private bathrooms have rainfall showerheads in the stand-up showers, and the toiletries are provided free of charge. Guests will find the rooms outfitted with LED televisions, complimentary WiFi, and free bottled water. The in-room safe is large enough to stow a laptop.
Nestled into Istanbul City Center, the hotel allows guests to easily walk to the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Bazaar, and the Cemberlitas Bath. Also easily accessible is the Cagaloglu Hamami, the Basilica Cistern, and the Hippodrome of Constantinople. The Istanbul Airport is a little over 30 minutes from the hotel, and there is a shuttle available for a small surcharge. Guests will find that there are two metro stations within walking distance of the Grand Hotel Gulsoy, but the hotel also offers a shuttle service to area attractions.
