Visited in July of 2014. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and upgraded our room to give us a view of both the water and the old city. Very close to public transportation and also within walking distance to sites such as Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Room was clean and air conditioning worked very well. Bathroom was large and...

Very friendly staff, very clean hotel. The best location that u can get 5minutes ti istiklal station and 1 minute to the bridge karakoy-eminonu. I absolutely recommend it to all. Wifi worked just fine. Breakfast a bit poor but ok.

We stayed here in May 2014 for 3 nights while exploring Istanbul for the first time. This was a great location to either walk or take public transportation to both the historic sites and the restaurant/bat district. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the roof deck was gorgeous. The music on the roof deck on Saturday night was amplified... More

Good location between the old and takssem Istanbul Little bit poor and unclean neighborhood. Great service and breakfast Very nice view from the restaurant on the roof Didn't like the idea that the breakfast is near the reception and not in the hotel restaurant on the roof

First off I cannot say enough about how nice the staff was at Galata La Bella. They answered all my questions and were always pleasant to talk to. The hotel is clean and newer looking. They cleaned my room thoroughly every day. The roof is a great place to see the Asian side and the great mosques from a distance... More

It was absolutely great value for money with such a great location of the hotel and excellent service with very friendly and helpful staff. I would like to mention Mr.Younis especially who was extra ordinary and is somebody who goes out of the way for making customers stay hassle free.

Great, clean hotel in prime location. while the room was not the largest it was big enough, breakfast good and staff helpful. At the top end for what I paid and I found the location so close to the transport hub as perfect
