We stayed here when we were stranded during the pilot strike. We went there because it was offering a good price in high season. What a wonderful surprise. Fantastic location - you can see the tower from the bedroom - great neighbourhood, good am entities, wonderful staff. We loved it. Sure it has a couple of problems ( the street... More

Stopped by for a much needed cool down on a 32 degrees hot sunny day. The service was really good, the manager (I think) even turned up the air con after we came in and looked visibly hot... without even asking! Ice cream and lemonade was actually really really good, wasn't expecting much tbh so blew our expectations out of... More

My wife and I took a summer trip to Istanbul. It was our second time in Duo Galata. The hotel is fine and has a good cost benefit. However, we had a big problem with the air conditioning system. We chose the superior room, which is the most expensive. First night, air conditioning wasn't working and we suffered during the... More

As hotels go for value and location this is a really good. The staff are liberal minded, generous people and the service is definitely more befitting a boutique hotel and the location is excellent, with views out onto the Aya Sofya and Topkapi with the Galata Tower directly in front it is well situated; but definitely do pay for the...

As mentioned here before: Duo Galata has a really unprofessional way of handling their business when it comes to money. There were two instances that left us with a very negative impression. 1. The shuttle service: There were four of us. My girlfriend, her parents and me. We were picked up from the airport as planned and when my girlfriend's... More

This is a relatively new hotel so the rooms and decor are all modern and furnished to create a hip and cool atmosphere. Let me first start with the positives: - The hotel is located in a central area in Beyoglu and is within walking distance to Galata Tower and Istiklal Caddesi. There are a lot of restaurants, bars and... More

We had a unpleasant incident when using the airport shuttle service. When we first requesting the shuttle we were told the price would be 25€ for two people. When we went too reconfirmed the time of pick-up and asked the price again we were told again 25€ for two people. On the morning of check out the price magically became... More

Stayed for 2 nights, visiting Istanbul for business. Very convinient location - just 100m from Sishane Metro station on one side, and 100m from Tramway station at Galata Bridge on onother, so taxi is not neccesary. Lot's of small cafes and restaurants around, as well as great nightlife on Istiklal street just hundred meters away. Very helpful staff, strong Wi-Fi... More

This is an attractive, clean and well-situated hotel in one of Istanbul's most popular neighborhoods. Clearly, much thought was put into the aesthetics of the rooms, and it shows. They're modern and sleek, extremely clean, and in general well outfitted. However, there were devils in the details. For example, the sink was located next to the bed, outside the bathroom.... More

This hotel is a great place to stay at. The area around the hotel is wonderful. There are many little stores. The pomegranate juice is really good. The public transportation is much better than cabs because cabs could rip you off. I would recommend for anyone. If you go to the mosques don't forget, women and girls have to have... More
