Very good location, because hotel is between old town and shopping street. Friendly( but not irritative) staff. They will always help you in various question. It is not a noisy around this hotel. So, it is possible to take a rest. Really clean rooms.

The view from the restaurant terrace on the seventh floor, as well as from the room 603 is phenomenal. Numerous bus, tram lines, as well as the subway, located just 50... More

I stayed here last Sept for seven nights as I had a conference at the Istanbul Technical University. The hotel is at a prime location - Karaköy. It's close to the Galata tower, you can take the tram to downtown (Sultan Ahmet), to the Esenler bus depot, to the airport, and you can take the train north to the university.... More

We've been to this little hotel, near the Galata Bridge and the Karakoy stop of the tramway line T1 (200 meters) and close to the Funikuler that bring you to Beyoglu Distrikt (Istiklal Caddesi). I think that Galata Bella has one of the most comfortable location in Istanbul. From Galata Bella you can reach every important sites of Istanbul. The... More

This hotel has a brilliant location just a short walk from Galata Tower, the Tunnel & also Galata bridge. It has small but comfortable rooms which we found great. The only complaint we have is that some of the linen had a few small holes in it, but everything else was completely fine! Make sure you head up to the... More

Great place to stay. Very nice and friendly staff. Worth a note, parking can be little difficult but the staff are at hand to help shift cars in the morning and I'm the evening. Also worth a note, if you are travelling, little difficult to find, must ask some locals.

We were pleasantly surprised with the room. Nice size, and looked as though it was newly renovated. The roof terrace bar was great for evening drinks before or after dinner. The breakfast was good to get you started for the day. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Location was fantastic. Would definitely stay here again.
