About Istanbul Golden City Hotel, Istanbul

Istanbul hotel with rooftop breakfast and Golden Horn views

By Atatürk Bridge

A block from the Atatürk Bridge in Beyoğlu, Istanbul Golden City Hotel has unobstructed views across the Golden Horn to the city's skyline of mosques. It's an 8-minute walk to Karaköy Tramway Station for trams across Galata Bridge, or a 4-minute drive to the Egyptian Bazaar.

3 minutes to Galata Tower

A 3-minute taxi ride from the hotel, the medieval stone Galata Tower is a local landmark housing a restaurant and viewing deck. Once a basilica, then a mosque, now a museum of Istanbul's civilizations, the Hagia Sophia is a 13-minute drive away across the Golden Horn.

Views of mosques

Wall-to-wall windows at the hotel's Peninsula Restaurant give panoramic views across the water to a skyline of minarets. Guests like the buffet breakfast of hot items and fresh fruit and there's also room service if you prefer to sleep in.

Homely perks, free WiFi

Fresh, modern guestrooms are air-conditioned, offering free WiFi as well as flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. There are kettles for making tea and minibars with cold drinks - perfect after a day of sightseeing - as well as safes for added convenience.

Hotel is situated in a strange, but very convenient location. It's close to The Galata Tower, tram across the Galata Bridge & up to Taskim(w/ a transfer). Hotel staff is extremely friendly & helpful. The rooftop offers an AMAZING view of the old city. They also serve an amazing breakfast & it is a bar at night. Again, the view is almost worth it all. I would recommend this hotel & would stay there again the next time I go to Istanbul.

Istanbul Golden City Hotel, Istanbul
The hotel is pleasant,clean and the staff spoke English. When our room safe had been left locked by the previous occupants Reception had someone come immediately to open and reset it for us. My wife had flowers from our family who had met us at the airport and the next morning we found the maid had put them into a glass vase - a nice touch. The buffet breakfast is plentiful and taken in the restaurant with a panoramic view of the Bosphorus. The street outside is very busy with hardware shops during the day but quiet at night and although it was dark returning to the hotel in the evening my wife and I did not feel unsafe.
