Amazing hotel!

Posted Sep 18, 2017
Pros: The staff made me enjoying staying at the hotel the most. They fulfilled all our needs at all time.
Cons: GLK Regency Premier is perfect as it is.
Location: The hotel is situated right by the centre of Sultanahmet making it convenient to navigate across the most visited touristic sites.
I really enjoyed my stay at GLK Regency Premier for 7 nights. All staff working at the hotel are extremely friendly and never fail to respond to my requests. One night I request for bread and butter late night (past midnight) and the staff did not have any in the hotel so he borrowed some from a neighbouring restaurant which was really sweet of him. The hotel was very clean and contained extra facilities such as: gym/ sauna/ turkish bath/ massage/ to prayer room. If I visit istanbul again, I will definitely stay here again. My favourite was Abadan who served me breakfast and ensured my needs were fulfilled. She was very friendly, and I will miss her alot!! The staff provided recommendations on the best restaurants to eat in as well as provided discounts on itineraries. Thank you very much all!

Very good location in Sultan Ahmet

Posted Sep 3, 2017
Nice hotel good staff. Limited breakfast, a small hotel the picture on Expedia is deceiving. Little atmosphere. I found the rate over £110 a night in August expensive for what the hotel was really like.

Shout out to Hugo!

Posted Jul 28, 2017
It may not be the most lavish hotel but the experience of it was absolutely brilliant. No faults what so ever on the service provided by the staff. Especially Hugo! We went as a family of four to this hotel iat the end of April and really enjoyed our stay there. We also took advantage of the free breakfast every morning which was beautifully prepared by their wonderful cook. The questions and worries we had about Istanbul were answered in great detail by the hotel staff and ensured we weren't being taken advantage of even though it wasn't there responsibility! They made our stay in and out of the hotel very easy for us and accomadated to all our needs. Such a family friendly and cozy hotel. Would definitely come again. PS- hope Hugo passed his exams! Sorry for the extremely late review. All the best.

Meh

Posted Jul 11, 2017
Meh. It was really highly ranked, so I thought it would be really legit. It was just ok. If I went to Istanbul again, I wouldn't stay in Sultanahmet - way too touristy and generally a pain. Restaurants and everything around are very touristy. Also, I wouldn't base my hotel search on online ratings. This was very highly rated, and I would call it a 3 star hotel at best. Talk to people who have been and figure it out. Stay somewhere other than Sultanahment, like Karakoy or something like that.
