I stayed at the Georges Hotel on October 21st and had scheduled to stay until the 25th. After the first night, as I returned to the hotel (after attending a work-related conference) I arrived to find the handles to the front door removed and darkness inside. Management was awaiting hotel guests as they returned from sightseeing and informed us of... More

5 days before my arrival, I received an email from the Reservation Manager indicating that the hotel had closed because the hotel is "facing an unexpected procedure from the Istanbul municipality". No additional information other than I need to scramble to find another hotel room. Is this true or some fraudster impersonating the hotel?

We stayed at the Georges Hotel for 4 nights. It was our first trip to Istanbul and the Georges Hotel is in a great location close to all the buzz of the city centre but equally easy to reach all the historic sites across the Galata Bridge. The room was very stylish and elegant, the fittings and fixtures were contemporary... More

Stayed at this hotel to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and the service couldn't have been better. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from booking a trip to arranging to have our clothes rail fixed immediately after reporting that unfortunately it had fallen down. Breakfast on the roof terrace was a leisurely affair whilst enjoying watching the world or... More

On day one of a five-day stay we notified management that there was no internet in the room. It became clear that management did not care, did not work to fix it, and did not offer any recompense. We complained daily to no effect. What otherwise should have been a lovely stay was marred as we and others huddled in... More

The Georges Hotel in Galata is small, but well-appointed, with fresh white quilts and sparkling new bathrooms. The roof-top restaurant has a spectacular view of the Bosphorus and serves excellent if somewhat pricey food. The staff is very attentive and helpful, and all spoke English, some quite well.

We stayed one night at the Georges and in our very brief stay a bit mixed (esp. after staying at TomTom the week before). We loved the location in Galata near the tower (super cute area), and the room was big, clean and well-designed but a few things were off - lots of loud noises in the middle of the... More
