Great people, view, and breakfast. Location is close to everything but is not a romantic stroll back to the hotel. If you don't need the romance/ambience for the last 2/10 of a mile of your nightly walk, then this is a perfect hotel. Irem and the GC team work hard to live up to your expectations.

Nice hotel good located near tram, subway and all things, you must see in Istanbul. Staff is very, very nice and helpful. Restaurant with perfect view on Sulaymania, Aya Sofia, Sultanahmet, Galata Tower and bridge and Topkapi. Perfect breakfast and restaurant. Rooms situated to street are noisy. Small elevator. Next time we come again to this hotel.

Your average hotel if you want a place in Istanbul that is close - walking distance to most of the places that you MUST visit. But the issues at the hotel gives you a headache that is basically killing the nice experience that you could have. Lets start with the good things: hotel is close to some really interesting places... More

Dear Ratko, Thank you for your nice comments and critiques. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our view and the service.

Meanwhile we will renew the isolation of our building, too. Unfortunately we do not... More

The hotel is close to the Galata Bridge (7mins walk). I really loved the location cause is very close to Istikal road, metro station and you can even easily walk to the other side where Agia Sofia is. You better get for 4 TL the metro there (4stops) to save your energy for sight seeing. The rooms are ok. Not... More

I loved the hotel, 8th floor, views to die for, superb comfort and the most powerful shower I've ever seen in any hotel. The food on the roof was a nice touch but was the same as any other hotel in Turkey, nothing to write home about. Staff were good as gold. The area wasn't far from the tourist areas... More
