20 Suite boutique hotel, located at a quiet corner in Pera, opposite of the italian consulate, italian Ambassador´s residence, italian school and kindergarden. Just 150 metres above the tramline which takes you within two stops to Sultanahmet district in one direction and 300 metres close to Dolmabahce palace in the other direction. Walking uphill 100 metres one reaches Istiklal road, the fancy shopping boulevard with Galata Tower distanced a few minutes by foot. Very friendly and helpful staff, spacious suites with large bathrooms, bathub, extra shower, wellsized king bed with fine linen. Breakfast served at the rooftop restaurant which is closed at present. A perfect oasis of retreat after diving through the pulsating masses of the mega city. Free masks provided at the hotel entrance - still pleasantly drama-free and friendly reception!

The Tomtom Suites are perfectly located in the heart of Beyoglu - only minutes to Istiklal Caddesi and Metro and a max. 30-minute walk to Karaköy Pier. Not only is the hotel surrounded by Mediterranean style historical buildings in the Italian Tomtom neighbourhood, but the hotel building itself is a pillar as well. The artsy and playful atmosphere and decor goes through every inch of the hotel's walls into the spacious guest rooms with wooden floors, high ceilings and colourful paintings. The bathroom is in white marble completely and the wonderful Molton Brown amenities enhance enjoying the lovely shower and the pleasant whirl-function bath tub. Breakfast is nice with in-house baked quiche tartes and tasty Turkush-style breakfast egg dishes. The view over the Beyoglu hill side on to Topkapi Palace and Aya Sofya as well as the Marmara Sea and the Adalar Islands from the breakfast table is unforgettable. In general, the hotel staff is very friendly and helpful always offering their support. This was especially important for us this time because we had family members with us and we wanted them to have a great impression, which they received overwhelmingly! The only downsides we can recall are overly expensive extra services such as coffee capsules (included in the room rates at most hotels of the Tomtom Suites' service level) or laundry and the fact that housekeeping did not vacuume as often and properly as required to get rid of all dust in the room. But overall, if you go to Istanbul, go to the Tomtom suites - an accommodation experience of a kind!

Not really sure that I want more people knowing about this wonderful and luxurious accommodation, smack in the middle of Istanbul. Walking distance from most places you would want to visit in Istanbul, it was the perfect place to stay on an overcast weekend with partner. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, whilst the quality of accommodation superb. Our new go-to place in Istanbul without doubt!

When I choose where to stay in Istanbul, and the choice is between the Golden Horn and Beyoğlu, I always opt for Beyoğlu. It is a different type of experience. That doesn’t mean less touristic or better, it is just that in Beyoğlu I find people, places, landscapes and other attractions that suit my personality and interests. This part of the city has always been an international crossroads, since the times it was a tiny Genoese colony known as Galata, and continues to be to this day. Tomtom Suites embodies with the history of its building, the accurate restoration, its location in the heart of the design and arts neighborhood and the excellent rooftop restaurant all of the traditions and trends of modern Beyoğlu. Very spacious rooms (actually I have always stayed in the same one, as they know I like it and always make sure I can stay there) with delicate, modern and comfortable interior. Kind and professional service on all levels. Complete absence of noise, which, given the location, is a dream. In few minutes walk up the hill you find yourself in the middle of the crowded Istiklal Avenue. My only remark goes to breakfast, that could be more varied. But it’s still nice with fresh products and great view.

This place ticks off all the right boxes. Staff was informative, helpful and friendly. Rooms were good size, very clean, and well appointed. Price was appropriate for what you get. The breakfast....get ready to be blown away. I honestly can't think of a better breakfast/setting I've had in a major city recently that rivals this. Food is plentiful and on point, but the view from this top floor setting with the sun coming up over the awakening city and Bosporus.... watch out. Its the highlight of the hotel. Its a maybe a 30 minute walk to the sites in the Golden Horn (15 min to Dolmabachce Palace), but we found the walk pretty relaxing and walking across the bridge is nice (downhill going/uphill coming back). Galata and Galata restaurants at night are going to be much more interesting than what you will find on the Golden Horn. Its too touristy over there. Highly recommend Tomtom Suites and would stay there again.
