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

We didnt planned to stay in this hotel originally but we found it by chance while a walk and went inside to check if they have anything free. The staff was friendly, they showed us a free room, which was big, clean and comfortable so we booked it for two nights. The hotel is in a side streed right next... More
