You'll have a warm welcome, kind people an extraordinary atmosphere in a very charmy neighborhood. Especially the soundtrack was fantastic and the staff very, very nice and kind. The hotel is close to very nice streets with a lot of trendy cafes and very central for the area and the interesting places there.

We went with 20 friends and stayed here for 5 nights. Found it a great place to stay! They all have a lovely friendly laid back attitude to the guests, always helpful and offering advice and tips. Rooms are very clean and ample with comfy beds. Breakfast is different every day, which means it's fresh and plenty of it. Firat... More

Stayed there for two night with my wife and adult daughter. It is very conveniently located. It is in the New Town, but only 10 min. Away from the Old Town. You just need to cross the bridge and you in the middle of the action. You also could go the opposite way to Galata Tower or toward Taksim, which... More

I stayed at this hotel at the end of August as a solo female traveler. Upon arrival (just after noon), I was able to check in and shown my room on the fourth floor. Considering how hot it was, and how long my flight had been, this was a nice surprise to be able to check in so early. The... More

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

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
