Positive: close to Galata Bridge and Tower, tram, walking distance from the Süleymanye and Eminönü districts you might like to visit. The price is fair, but not the services. Wifi works quite ok. Negative: dirty - bot the rooms and the bathrooms in rooms / shared bathrooms. Forget the breakfast and the morning coffee, you better get out and eat... More

At 10 pm it was an Odyssey to find it. When we finally arrived, we knocked the door and nobody was opening. After 10 minutes we had decided to try to find another place, and then a guy came out. At first he couldn't find out reservation (a private "deluxe" room), but when he finally did, he told us he... More

excellent location near the tram and within walking distance from taksim and sultanahmed. very good breakfast, fast wifi at all floors and friendly staff. there is no elevator but it's fine if you stay on 1st-3rd floor, but not on 5th if you are not young.the matress was not perfect and the ceiling (on a 5th floor room) needs refresh.

Bathrooms too were not clean and english is an issue with some of the persons working there. It is quite cheap, ok, but I'm... More

Me and my boyfriend have recently stayed at Hotel Galata 2. Everything seemed to be fine for the first night. In the morning we asked if we could stay one extra night. The guy at the reception had a terrible English but after 10-15 min of checking his papers, he finally told us, very clearly, that we could stay another... More

Excellent location for travellers who visit Istanbul for the first time especially if you want to explore Istanbul by walk. It is at a half a way from Sultan Ahmet to Taksim. There is also excellent public transportation if you want to use it. You get very good services for the price you pay.

Location: The hotel was initially a little hard to find as not many taxi drivers knew it. Our cab dropped us off at the foot of the Galata tower... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The location was very convenient. A few minutes walk from the Galata tower, bridge and metro station. The owner was nice and warm but not speaking much English. The room was basic but good value for money considering how much we paid. Breakfast was not bad. There were a couple of occasions... More
