The hotel is located close to the bridge to sultanahmed area which allowed me to go walking up to those old mosques and avoid costly hotels in sultanahmed... More

Great service, we had a few faults in the room but they were fast to fix things. Breakfast was lovely on the terrace and the staff were friendly and helpful. Staff in the reception were smiley and welcoming ever time we got back to the hotel. Overall great place to stay for a family holiday.

Just arrived, meeting our friends, seems a long way from airport, but greeted so warmly and then you go up to roof top bar and the view is amazing, feels like you ate watching over the whole of Istanbul. I loved it here, walking distance to attractions we wanted to visit & staff so wonderful xx

We visit Galata la Bella on 29th of March 2016 to spend Easter vacation with the family. When we rich the hotel, we was surprised that the lobby is in the corner of the breakfast area.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
