The hotel was in a great location, the rooms were beautifully designed (and we tried to have a peek in as many as we could) and we had excellent service. The concierge helped us out beyond the boundaries of his job description and throughout our stay, the hotel employees were accommodating and personable. There were some small noise disturbances.

Staying at the House Hotel in the Galatasaray feels like you are staying at your own pied a terre apartment, Parisian-style. Except you are located very centrally in the heart of Istanbul.

We booked the House Galatasaray because we love staying in small hotels with character. We loved the location of the hotel as it as within easy walking distance of some the cities best attractions and restaurants and because it was in a quiet location.

The hotel overall is nice in a house-style building like the old houses of Istanbul which gives it a great image. The room (mini-suite) was quite spacious with nice and comfortable bed and some complimentary items like coffee (espresso machine in the room), water, chocolates, etc... Bathroom was also alright with nice shower. The only problem was that my room... More

I stayed in The House in December and I did enjoy it a lot. The studio was clean, well decorated, good internet connection, well maintained facilities close to the metro. The staff was more than helpful. There is absolutely no problem to communicate in English and have really nice conversation. I enjoyed my stay a lot.

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay in the HH Galatasaray. The hotel is reasonably close to a Metro stop and conveniently located downhill from Istiklai street shops, restaurants and bars. The décor throughout is lovely and there is a general air of quiet and calm. Staff were all most helpful and friendly.
