“Boutique Hotel review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

“We spent 4 nights here celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, and had a fabulous time. All the hotel staff were exceptionally helpful and polite, and we would highly recommend it to anyone. There are good tram connections close by and a great array of eateries within short walking distance. Overall, an excellent base from which to explore both the old city and the new!”

Room Tip: Front facing suite for low noise levels.

From tasteful, airy and elegant room, to a wonderful rooftop, The House Hotel Galatasaray is flawless. Staff are helpful and friendly - especially Cihan, from the front office who has given me great tips. The only shortfall is the absence of a gym, but in spite of that, The House Hotel will be my place to go in Istanbul.

Our second summer visit to the amazing metropolis of Istanbul that we've come to enjoy so much. Progressing from the more touristy area of Sultanamet, this time to The House Hotel in the busy and thriving area of Galatasaray. The hotel's modern metro design fits really well within this large classic six story Ship Captain's house (as was, we're told) and its designer marble bath and shower rooms a total delight after a busy day's shopping! Breakfast and lunch are both excellent in its tranquil top floor clubroom and the staff in particular manager Sarp & staff Cihan (thank you again) were more than helpful with onward bookings and important local information, i.e the newest trendy night spot/ restaurants& bars/ boutiques e, all vital stuff in this funky part of town which their hotel serves so well.

Neat hotel with a lot of charm and style. Excellent personnel, always polite willing to help. Great location with close proximity to shops, restaurant and bars. They offer outstanding recommendations for restaurants and bars.

Unfortunately no elevator, but the staff is very helpful in assisting with the luggage, so it didn't cause a problem at all.

The hotel location is very convenient. The rooms are all modern with a touch of antique. The staff was very friendly, polite and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The shopping area is in walking distance and all the historical sights very close. A very good choice!!!!

The hotel is very majestic, modern but with an antique feel. The staff was very very kind. The room was very clean and worth the money. We enjoyed being in this part of town. The metro is within walking distance and easy to navigate.

The hotel really has everything to make you feel comfortable in Istanbul. When checking in we were greeted very friendly. The bags were taken from us immediately and carried into the room. We were familiar with everything. Breakfast, and the spectacular view was simply fantastic. We then flew to Dubai and the atmosphere have missed there. If Istanbul again, then at this hotel!
