TravelPod Member ReviewsGulhane Park Hotel Istanbul
We were booked into Gulhane Park by our tour organisers so stayed here twice - the first for one day and the second time for three nights.
The breakfast was adequate - just a shame they didn't serve it on the roof top as promised in the brochures. That would have added so much value. The room was okay. Unfortunately there was a horrible sewerage smell particularly outside the room near the stairwell. The internet didn't work which caused a bit of grief as we needed to get online to firm onwards arrangements and do some banking.
The staff were friendly but limited in what they could do to solve problems. They have a board that shows the tariffs at about 400 euro per night - what a joke! I am sure our travel agent didn't pay any more than about US$70.
This hotel is perfectly located in Sultanhamet - close to everything but far enough away from the expensive tourist strip. One thing that rather annoyed/amused us was that when we stayed for three nights they didn't replenish the two teabags that were provided in the room on l, or soaps etc. That sort of penny pinching really detracts from what they could be.

Once we got checked in and had a friendly chat with our host, we made a beeline for the Turkcell HQ in Istanbul to get our phones set up. After that we turned around and took a leisurely walk back down to the ...
... in caves. Everything was perserved well so we were actually able to obtain a clear idea of how life was then. We could't take photos inside the churches but I did get many beautiful shots of the surrounding terrain and landscape. It was absolutely beautiful. I had seen photos of Cappadocia prior to my visit but those photos didn't do the city any justice, just as my photos won't show the beauty my eyes saw. All of ...
... the balcony trying to dry with no success. Second, the Internet was being dodgy. Finally, the friend that was showing Kristina the apartment knew very little about the apartment and we couldn't get ahold of the owner. The upside to the apartment was that the three of us had our own bedrooms and for Lindsay and I that's a big deal. It's location was also really nice except when it rained and we had to climb a hill at about a 65 degree angle which was slippery and no fun at ...
... the entire campaign from the Turkish point of view. It was interesting to see and hear their portrayal of the events that occurred and how they beat tyranny to become independent and now a successful modern turkey. The last room was a exuberant show of how turkey has progressed into the modern age…feeling a tad confused at the whole thing we jumped on our bikes and got to Eceabat, to catch a ferry across to Cannakkale. We made it in great time with the ferry just loading up ...
