It is so close to Karakoy tram line. The restaurant is on the 10th floor of the hotel. If you would like to go by car.... More

The view of the old city from the roof top restaurant was spectacular both at night and during the day. But you do not have to stay... More

But the views from the rooms are stunning and all major attractions are a walk away or few mints by public transport. very near to the tram station. bus stop and underground. the restaurant is really good. Serves great breakfast... More

With the choice of the panoramic-view-room, we enjoyed our first tourism visit in Istanbul. Their top-roof restaurant is really fantastically good for a super romantic couple dinner with very very very reasonable price!!! It is also very nice for the view during breakfast. In terms of enjoying Istanbul supreme location plus the city view, It is really very recommendable for... More

From the moment we arrived at this hotel, my partner and I were treated as old friends. There were welcoming drinks to meet us, refreshing after a long flight! Even better, we were then offered a free upgrade to a room with wonderful views. The free breakfasts were delicious with so much choice. It was noisy at times during the... More

Excellent location for exploring Istanbul. the rooms on the road are a bit noisy. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant on the top floor are great with stunning views. Very friendly staff. Thanks to Ali for his help and travel card.

Staying in Karakoy

Neighborhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
