I spent few last days of 2014 and New Year in this service apartments. Even the weather in Istanbul was awful but my time there at Galata Flats was cozy and warm. My apartment was really spacey with kitchen and big dining also separate bedroom. It was not too bright because this beautiful historic building has just few small windows... More

I reserved a room at the apartment's web site, and two days later a fraudulent charge appeared on my credit card. The owner uses a .uk email address, and the fraudulent charge originated in London. I shared this with the owner who was quite irate that I would even insinuate that anyone with whom he is associated could be at... More

We booked our room very last minute and managed to still get very good service and our room was very nice. The apartment has a very nice layout and quite modern. The place does need some maintenance as a number of things were either not working or broke. Overall we still liked the place very much. It is a bit... More

We stayed 4 days in May 2014 in Galata flats. The location is great as the hotel is only a few steps away from the end station of the cable car that links Beyoglu to Galata bridge. It is a lively area at night with plenty of excellent addresses to dine out. The flat was spacious, comfortable and very clean.... More

This place is a few steps away from Taksim Square and Istiklal street. It's away from the touristy areas of Istanbul. We enjoyed being part of the locals trendy part of town i.e Beyoglu close to shops and eateries. The appartment was spotless and tastefully done up. Check in and check out was very smooth. Sleep quality was excellent and... More

We went there with friends to explore the city and enjoy our time together. This hotel is great for a bigger group! Service was very helpful and the room spacious, clean and nicely decored. Location is perfect, Galata area and Istiklal just few steps away. Many good restaurants nearby. You can always get a cab just outside the hotel. Also... More

After 12 days of running around Turkey, we saved Istanbul for last and spent 5 nights at Galata Flats. A completely welcome place to stay - they have a washer/dryer and otherwise fully equipped apartment that's ideal whether or not you end up using the kitchen much. It's clean, bright and modern. We had a bedroom that was somewhat on... More

Excellent place for visiting Istanbul either for business or with family, with great service and large, comfortable rooms and smart kitchen facilities. Very well located just a short walk from Istikal street and in the trendy Tunel neighbourhood with good restaurants just a few steps away. Galata bridge is also just a walk down the hill. Staff very helpful with... More

Galata Flats is situated in the vibrant neighbourhood of Tünel, with a lot of shops, cafés and restaurants. The Tünel subway and the nostalgic tramway is within short walking distance and it is very conveniant to get to the historic peninsula, without actually having to stay there. The building is an old one that has been recently refurbished. There is... More

We went to Istanbul to celebrate our friends bachelorette party. We were seven girls that shared the flat, and it was just perfect!! Cevdet was the nicest host you can have and the guys in the reception were just so helpful and kind! They were ready to help and answers questions at any time of the day. The flat is... More
