    Location 10.0 /10

    The Golden Age is located in the new town, some 330 feet from Taksim Square and the lively the Istiklal street. To reach the old town and the airport by taxi, allow 20 minutes.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The 180 standard rooms of the hotel are very standard but they have the advantage of having just been painted. They have air-conditioning, with direct telephone with international line, and satellite television. Safes are available for free at the front desk. The bathrooms have bathtubs, toilet and hair-dryers.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in 1990 and renovated in 2001 the Golden Age is a modern 9-storey building. The entrance leads to a rather unappealing, neutral and functional lobby, in black and brown colours. The decor is a stunning mixture of Ottoman and the '70s styles. At the end of the lobby there is a bar and a souvenir shop. In the basement the hotel has arranged a small fitness centre but it rather lacks flair. There is a sauna, a hammam and a small bar. In summer the roof terrace is open. You can enjoy the small round pool and a bar. Unfortunately, the view is not very exciting.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The Golden Age has a restaurant (decorated in yellow and black!) where breakfast is served buffet style. For lunch and dinner you can choose between a set menu or a selection of Turkish specialities (14 starters, 9 meat dishes, 5 sandwiches and 6 desserts). Room service means you can eat in your room 24 hours a day (snack menu).

    To know

    Located next to another hotel of the same group, the Golden Age shares a tea room (the CafÚ Rose), a small business centre with computer, scanner, printer and Internet access, a clothes shop and a pool table.

      • Location 10.0

      The Maisons de Sainte-Sophie are definitely one of the best places to stay in Sultanahmet, a few steps away from the Topkapi Palace. This set of Ottoman residences, with its multicoloured wooden walls, is reminiscent of a charming village of doll houses. The interiors are refined and tastefully decorated. A great place if charm is more important to you than comfort.

      The marvellous view over the Bosphorus, the welcoming ambience and the excellent restaurant combine to make this hotel a real winner. Indeed, it is when you are in the restaurant or piano bar that the establishment can really be enjoyed in all its splendour.
      However, in order to truly attain the status the hotel might otherwise deserve, it could do with gym and spa facilities.
      This is a sophisticated establishment, but it has the potential to be even better.

      • Value for money 7.34
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
