This is an amazing urban hotel for young couples that want to experience all that Istanbul has to offer. The location is amazing - right in Karakoy which is near some great neighborhoods: Galata, Cihangir and the entire Beyoglu area. It is a great jumping off point to explore some of the cities coolest areas. The staff is so helpful... More

Though rooms are somewhat small, the location makes up for it. Very close to the port so very convenient for those taking a cruise. The Istanbul Modern museum is blocks away and Kilic Ali Pasa Hamami, a terrific hamam that the hotel recommended, is nearby. Tram stop is down the street and it takes you to Sultanahmet in minutes. Or,... More

The service was excellent - very friendly and helpful staff! Got lots of tips about great places to visit and eat! Good breakfasts, clean rooms, quiet street. Very good location - close to Galata bridge (5 min on foot), Galata tower (10 min), Historic Center (30 min stroll), shopping (20-25 min by metro). The rooms are a bit small and... More

We were 5 days in Istanbul, and enjoyed both the cultural and the night life side of this beautiful city. The SuB Karaköy Hotel is pretty well located, 10 min walking distance from the harbour as well as from the main street, tram and metro only 5 min. Very nice hotel and lovely staff. Good wifi connection in the whole... More

Stylish boutique hotel, extremely friendly staff, great service, delicious breakfast, good music, perfect location - loved this place! Only down side is the slightly noisy street, but that´s the price for staying in the middle of Istanbul. We´ll be back!

The perfect bolt hole in a hip suburb of Istanbul. Great location for getting to all the tourist attractions and strolling distance to a fantastic range of restaurants and hipster coffee scene. The hotel roof bar has a private feel to it as if its your own, a great spot for a drink with views after exploring Istanbul

Each and every one of the staff here are totally amazing and give the best advice when it comes to what to see and do around town. Set in the hip part of the city, it doesn't take long before you feel like a local. After a long day you can head across the street and have a drink, or... More
