We spent 5 nights in New Galata hostel. The hostel’s location is excellent - just near Istiklal street, 5 min to the Galata tower and metro station, 10 min to Galata bridge and 15 min to the Taksim square. However, this part of Istanbul is quite hilly, so be prepared to walk a lot up and down. You can use... More

Me and a friend of mine stayed for 4 nights in the new galata and had a really good time. Our apartment was really sweet decorated and clean. When we arrived we got welcomed and got informed with a city plan and they offered us all kind of help when we had any questions. The New Galata is perfectly located... More

There is absolutely NO better place to stay than here. Tucked away nicely on a charming street near Galata Tower, this place is an all-round winner. Location is tops, near "Independence" Ave, Taksim and Cihangir. All the restaurants, cafés, clubs are walking distance (foodie heaven). All the historical sights are 10 minutes by taxi (don't make the mistake of staying... More

Price paid for the hotel was exorbitant - you can stay in a nicer hotel in sultanahmet for 2/3 the price. Room does not include breakfast despite the high price. No facilities so this operates more like an expensive motel. Room is not cleaned thoroughly, no complimentary water. Agree with recent reviews that the neighbourhood is nice but you can... More

Like others have written recently, we booked this hotel based on its great Lonely Planet review and strong Trip Advisor scores - but perhaps something has changed with it recently, because it definitely didn't live up to our expectations. First of all, calling it a "B&B" is generous, and calling it a "hotel" is straight-up misleading. We arrived in the... More

Unfortunately, despite all the shining previous reviews I had read about this hotel, including glowing reviews in the Lonely Planet and from a friend from home whose judgment I trust, things seem to have gone drastically off the rails here....I also thought the room, although well appointed and spacious & in a nice neighbourhood, wasn't particularly clean. They said they... More

We stay in New Galata for 6 nights and finally we don't recommend it at all. Location was good but the room was as clean as it should be. There's not a clean daily service, so in 6 days they didn't clean the room. They said to let the towels in the floor if we wanted to change them but,... More

This place is in Beyoglu, a very nice neighbourhood in Istanbul. It has easy access to the tram (10 minutes walk), the subway (2 minutes walk) and the main port, Eminönü (15 minutes walk or 3 minutes funicular). Galata tower is just a short nice walk away, as is sedar-i ekrem street, with lots of cafes and clothing stores. Istiklal... More

We were completely happy with our 2-night stay. The room is cleverly designed, all blond wood; it's long and feels like a studio apartment. The kitchenette is new and functional; there's coffee and tea, great bathrobes. Great room service breakfast every day. Sennur is a perfect host – cool, cheerful and caring. Our outgoing flight was late in the evening... More
