The location is central with lots to offer and direct by the tram. However, do not bother with breakfast. It lacks all imagination and care. Most things in the bedroom are broken or come away in your hand ( bathroom holder, locks....). For the money not the worst experience ever but if the owners spent a bit on updating it... More

Allright, let me start with what I expected. The hotels in Taksim are way more overpriced while Karaköy is 5 min away. It is also near the Goldenhorn and more close to Sultanahmet, its pretty close to every touristic place I ve been visiting like Galata Tower etc. So after I spent a bit unnecessary money on Taksim's "so called...

The view from our room was great. The manager, Bura was very friendly and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. The breakfast too, was good. The location was extremely central with it being close to the historic area as well as Taksim.

Thank you for everything .It was the first time I came to Istanbul .I feel like in my house in this egzotic place . Breakfast was delicious also .Karakoy is a place must be seen in Istanbul. I Like Galata very much. I can live in Istanbul easily.

It's hard to find at first time. Very close to Galata tower and bridge - plus. Silent at night, noise at early mornings. Staff hardly speaks English but very nice and friendly. good cost/quality ratio.

The staff were helpful and welcoming when we arrived but the room smelled damp and musty and was rather warm. There did not seem to be any climate adjustment and the only window opened onto an internal atrium which carried the noise up from the bar/reception area and was quite loud. The dampness appeared to be due to a leaking... More

Staying in Karakoy

Neighborhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
