Enjoyed our stay in this historic building. It is really in the middle of a lot of hip bars and restaurants, and just a short walk from Istikal street. Yet we never heard noise from bars and people on the streets. It's tucked away just perfectly. We were upgraded to a suite that had 2 single beds (which they pushed... More

Ok why poor when it is well run, in a great location and clean if a little tired decoratively? Well ignoring a bout of food poisoning from breakfast one day (avoid fruit and salad!!), the huge draw back was our mattress. It was excruciatingly hard as was the second room we tried. In fact so uncomfortable was our six night... More

Stayed for a night. It's in a good location right next to Istiklal Caddesi for restaurants and shopping; and Tunel for public transportation. It's a short walk to Galata tower. Good breakfast on 5th floor with a view of the city. Front desk is very friendly but when we called for help because our tv wasn't working, no one showed... More

Nice, small hotel, with clean and simply decorated rooms. Centrally located, in the heart of Istanbul. The staff was very friendly and smiley. Special thanks to Vedat, the young man at the reception who was very helpful. Only problem, the noise coming from the breakfast area. My room was beneath it and in the morning is disturbing hearing the noise... More

We stayed there in November, and we were not disappointed. The area is the best, you avoir the tourist of the Old town, and can feel the heart of Istanbul. Very close to a lot of the Istanbul Nightlife, and a short taxi ride from anything you would typically visit in Istanbul. The breakfast is decent, and the view from... More

As the title suggests you should choose this hotel depending on what your needs/priorities are. In terms of location and surrounding neighbourhood it is truly a well-situated hotel. Despite the amazing view from my hotel room and the breakfast area, my room had a few problems. It was clearly a part of the terrace that has been converted into a... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in November 2013 and enjoyed it profoundly. Hotel is located in the best area possible. It is much wiser to stay at Beyoglu than at Sultanahmet because this beautiful quarter it is full of amazing places to eat (most within 10 minutes walk from the Galata Antique Hotel). Tunel funicolare station and... More
