Located in Karakoy - ex-industrial district, now location is in the process of revival, having vast of nice cafes on neighboring streets. Convenient location - tram, 1km from Galata bridge, 300m from Istanbul Modern Museum. Building itself is an ex-office type, rooms are spacious: mirrors, metal-core soft bed coloured black or red, wooden floors, bathroom is a bit creepy, like... More

We stayed at the SuB Hotel for a week this September and absolutely loved it! The space is beautifully designed, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff are extraordinarily helpful. The true spirit of hospitality! When we arrived, we were welcomed with a juice and given great recommendations on activities based on our interests. The breakfasts are delicious,... More

During a Motor Bike Trip from Frankfurt to Istanbul we had the pleasurable experience to stay at the SUB Hotel in Istanbul. The very friendly and welcoming Service at the SUB has all of us very impressed. The clean, nostalgic / modern but still cozy style of the Hotel has left an unforgettable memory on us. The breakfast table was... More

When we walked through the door, we immediately saw the breakfast area with a huge table covered in a selection of breakfast delights! My first impression was that the staff were a bit too casual, however this soon became one of the highlights of the hotel. Most of the staff are quite young/hip, and we had a chance to chat... More

This is a great central hotel in Istanbul with a great team of staff. We only stayed for one night so cannot comment too much. Rooms - great, fairly edgy and cool. Super low but comfortable beds. Noisy on the Saturday night we were there due to a club which is across the road, but we got sleep anyhow. Location... More

Really enjoyed this new, modern, stylist hotel. The staff are very kind and attentive and the space is very cool. Though some of the fixtures and furnishings in the rooms are sort of Ikea-ish in their durability, this allows them to offer good design at a very decent room rate. Just across the street are a number of cool, hipster... More

I can only highly recommend this hotel. The young staff, notably Emre, Vasifye and Aylin were unfailingly helpful in all manner of things, from places to visit and how to get there to restaurants to eat in. All the staff were friendly and very welcoming. The hotel is walking distance to all the major attractions and if you don't feel... More

I stayed at SuB for 3 nights. I loved the style of the place and found the room to be clean and pleasant. Breakfast was superb and the staff were very friendly and helpful. SuB is in a great location. Karakoy has some good bars and restaurants, is only a short journey from the tourist attractions and is close to... More

Location of SuB Karakoy is perfect as you will never run out of things you can see in Istanbul walking distance from the hotel lobby. The employees were excellent and really cared about the customer experience, the breakfast was very tasty, and the accommodations were clean. When I visit Istanbul again, I shall look forward to staying at the Sub... More
