Our stay at Galata was fantastic from start to finish. Marta and the team were so welcoming, and wonderful at booking us restaurants, a trip to the hamam and really helping us out in a fraught moment with our taxi back to the airport! Great location, our room was stunning and meticulously clean. Can't wait to come back!

Be prepared to be blown away by its modern interior design, strategic location (in between Istikal and the tram line), helpful yet not over bearing service, view (not from rooms but rooftop), and convenience ie. free wifi, cakes and coffee at check-in, and room service. It sure delivers! Ps: it is located on a moderately steep hill so make sure... More

The service was excellent. My flights were a mess, but the car they arranged was there to pick me up and they were kind enough to see my to my room in the middle of the night.

We spent three nights at Rooms Galata in April 2014. After almost two weeks of travel we were thrilled to stay in a room that felt like an apartment, with space and privacy. The size of our standard double room surprised us, it was nicely decorated with a lovely reading nook and small kitchenette. The building itself had common space... More

Everything is great! Kind & very helpful staff. Nice design, good furniture. Gorgeous view of the city from the rooftop terrace. Location is great, few meters from the Istiklyal str. We spent really great time at Istanbul. I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

We just returned from a 4-day trip to Istanbul and the foundation of our trip was the experience at Rooms Galata. We simply could not have asked for more!

Stayed for a couple of days over the Easter weekend. Our room was wonderful - stylishly decorated, good size, very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Location was great. Nice places to eat nearby. Will certainly stay again when next in Istanbul

I rented a studio apartment for 18 days and was very happy with the facilities and service provided. Everything was exactly as described, no surprises.

Dear 0borders, It makes us happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the polite feedback. As a note, I would simply add that after some renovations both of our buildings do now feature lifts. We are waiting for you next time, to test them. Thank you again. More

We stayed over Easter for 5 days and it was a great experience. The rooms are exactly as shown on the pics if not better and Marta was very helpful throughout our stay! Great location in a very quiet street and in an ideal area for going out or sight seeing !
