3 Americans women taking our first trip to Istanbul couldn't have been luckier with our accommodations as the Galateia Residence Apartments. I was a bit leery that this is not a true hotel, but in most every sense of the word, it does operate that way. There is a person at the front who will greet you and help you... More

Great hotel and excellent staff. Taxi needed to get to the city centre. Rooms were a good size and the bathroom was of a very high quality. Room service was efficient and prompt. Breakfast was a buffet and there was substantial food available. There was an X ray machine to check luggage entering the hotel.

Great place to stay. Definitely recommend it!!! The apartment is really big, spacious and clean. It has a subway station half block away. There is also a big street one block away where you can walk, nice stores and restaurants. Mini markets where you can buy things to eat. Wifi works perfectly.

This stay was way more than I ever hoped for. I didn't expect much from this low key establishment, but wow did they ever prove me wrong. From the care and attention of the staff, to the lovely views from the room or apartment, all was just fantastic. We stayed in the top floor apartment (if you can afford it,... More

Staying here is like having a beautifully furnished, large apartment within steps of Istiklal Caddesi. Fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom plus separate "guest" toilet, lovely bedroom with huge, comfortable king bed, a luggage room with coat closet, and a large living room with big windows, dining table, television with lots of channels in many languages--all impeccably clean and stylish.

Stayed for 4 nights and could have stayed for another 4 quite easily. Apartment was cleaned daily while we were out site seeing and breakfast was brought up to our room at whatever time we requested. Would stay again for sure!

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years and had a fantastic time! The street was very quiet but located off Istiklal caddesi which offered plenty to do and very close to the Galata Tower. Staff were lovely and very attentive. The apartment was spacious, beautiful and very well kept. We would absolutely stay here again and we highly... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
