We had a great stay at the SuB Karaköy hotel in the southeastern part of the 'new' city area. First of all the hotel. A little hotel with a great atmosphere, very nice and helpfull staff. Within a few minute walk you could either get to lots of great cozy cafés (a little like the SoHo area of New York)... More

SuB Karakoy gets it right on so many levels. This is a small, comfortable hotel with a cool edge in a happening part of town. The rooms are a good size, with en-suite bathrooms and a handful of luxuries/necessities – TV, slippers, eye mask, cosmetics, a fridge, a safe. It's the perfect place to hang around – either in your... More

Nice room with very comfortable bed, were an extra (third) bed was added on our request. Very good playlist! So this was all very good, and we really... More

A very friendly and comfortable place to stay while experiencing Istanbul. We were absolutely happy with the location, the room and the diverse breakfast buffet, and recommend you don't forget to enjoy the rooftop bar, preferably in the evening for a more romantic impression. The team is fanstastic and will help you plan your route as well as get a... More

I went to Istanbul for work and SuB Hotel was recommended to me by the typography I collaborate with. I am indeed very happy to have accepted their advice. The staff is extremely kind, accomodating and generous. The interior design is very warm and the whole atmosphere feels almost like being at home. Whenever I'd come back from work, I... More

My boyfriend and I have been in SuB hotel for five days and we literally fell in love with it! Rooms are exactly as appear in the photos, perfectly clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is strategic, I think the best to reach the old town (Sultanahmet) as well as all other districts (Galata, Cucurkuma, Ortokoy etc.) and... More

This was my first visit to Istanbul and friends recommended I stay outside of the Sultanamet area and in Galata. I didn't want to spend too much but also wanted to treat myself a bit and not go too cheap. The SuB Hotel in Karakoy looked good on paper and totally delivered when I got there. The staff were extremely... More

Loved my stay here at the SuB Hotel! As soon as we got off the cab we were greeted with Turkish Tea & Coffee and were welcomed into our room. The rooms were cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel also includes breakfast which includes many flavors of the Turkish cuisine, great variety of cheese and bread and... More

Sub Karakoy is a boutique hotel in a trendy upcoming Istanbul district. The location is a 15 - 20min walk to Taksim Square, although the shorts off Taksim are a 10-15min walk. The old town is a 30 min walk or 10mins by tram. Pros Location - Good bars and restaurants / vibe in the area around. Istanbul modern is... More
