“Best Deal in Sultanahmet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

I stayed at another hotel the first night but for only 21Euro, this place was much better. There is an elevator, which is a huge plus, trust me, I've been all over this country and they are few and far between. Since it's winter, the terrace restaurant is closed, but they bring you breakfast to your room instead. There is also free internet in the room and they bring you a welcome tea or coffee. The rooms were very clean and modern and the bed was comfortable. It is also conveniently located to the tram stop so it's only 4TL from the airport. 5 min walk to all the big sights in Sultanahmet (blue mosque/Hagia Sophia/Topkapi Palace)

This is a very small but well kept and nice hotel with the smallest reception ever seen. The rooms are located in the corner of a building, there are not more than 2-3 rooms on every floor. As a familly of 4 (two kids just below teenage) we vere very happy to find the room to be 2 separate bedrooms attached. Just perfect! The location of the hotel could hardly be better. Just a few hundered meters to walk (further) from the Gulhane tram stop (next to the wall of the Tokapi palace) with walking distance to Aya Sofya and Blue mosque etc. Our room was located so we could se the roof of the tram passing below our window but the tram is very quiet so we didnt experience any disturbing noise. At high season there could maybe be some activities on the road outside that could be disturbing if you are sensitive but in Turkey generally you have more noise than at home... When finding the hotel it is good to keep looking for the sign a bit up in the air as it is hanging out from the wall at 2nd floor together with many other signs on the main road. The entrance is opposite a hairdresser on a street crossing the main (tram) road. The rooms were very clean with comfortable beds and nice (but small) bathroom. Staff were very kind and serviceminded. As we were visiting in the cold season the breakfast were brought into the rooms. Good, typical turkish breakfast! Would definitly go back.

We stayed at G.C.H. for 4 nights in December 2011.The hotel was in a great area, 4 min walk from Agia Sophia&Topkapi Palace, but it was also near a "cami" so the imam woke us up at 6:30 in the morning (probably,all the hotels in the area have this problem)!

The room was very clean although there were two mold marks,one in the ceiling and one in the shower.The breakfast was served in the room since the weather didn't allow the use of the terrace(the normal breakfast area).The breakfast itself was nothing special but it was adequate. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful, especially Cetin.

Overall, we had a great stay and we would definitely stay again.

Gulhane Corner Hotel is a nice and friendly little hotel in an excellent location. The rooms were in decent shape and cleaned every day. For the first two nights we stayed in a very small room in fifth floor, which was a little disappointing as we specifically asked for a double bed instead of two beds put together (which seems to be a standard in value hotels - we always book a room with a double bed and seem to get a room with two beds almost always). After two nights we got a decent, much bigger room with a double bed and a small balcony, and the disappointment quickly faded away.

The location was on a busy street with trams going on until late night, and the walls were quite thin, so if you're a light sleeper, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. If you sleep like a log like us, this hotel is a great choice for it's price.

Great service, good beds, clean room during the days of our stay.
Breakfast is served in the room, using trays. To be eaten sitting on the bed, as there is no room for table or chairs. We heard that on days with good weather, they serve breakfast at the terrace. Unfortunately we could not experience that.
The rooms are really small, but newly renovated trying to get to a higher standard. However the windows did not close well. They could fix that instead of putting so much effort in making the interior look so refined.
Location excellent. Good budget hotel. Do not get your expectations high and it will be perfect.

Room Tip: Best to get a room on the upper floors, to get away from city (tram) noise.
