The hotel is very nice, clean and has friendly stuff. Everything is very nice and good quality. The best part is the location, right next to the Tower, Istaklal and Sishane Metro st. Rooms are very nice. the only thing i would improve is to put some music during the breakfast hours as its very silent there and feels weird... More

I only stayed in this hotel one night and loved the service. Hotel is located with a few stairs so hard to take a heavy luggage up the stairs to get to the hotel lobby. I had the help of my cabdriver so was glad that I didn't have to carry it as often. My room was on the top... More

Having now experienced at least 3 other hotels in Turkey, I found that the Galata Antique was wonderful in terms of the warmth, helpfulness and professionalism of staff, the ambience of the hotel itself (and great location), and I will always remember the rooftop cafe with its wonderful view, great breakfast and chorus of seagulls to start each day.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel in November 2015. It is located near Galata Tower a few meters away from the tunnel train, an metro station and the Istiklal street, one of the most crowded streets in Istanbul. The hotel seems to be old but it is well decorated, clean and the rooms are in good condition. At... More

The Hotel is in a great location next to a metro station and near the trams in karakoy but it has small, tired rooms with some of the staff lacking training. The first room we had was hardly larger than the double bed with small bathroom, no wardrobe just a hanging rail and had no safe despite being advertised as... More

The hotel is located just next to a metro station, easy to travel around the city. Just 1 minute on foot you get another metro for a Karakoy / Sultanahmet trip. I just didn't like the noise coming from outside. I think it's not padded. The staff is polite. The guy at reception Ally (not sure how it's written )... More

My biggest complaint was that it seemed run down and dirty which is a shame as its has a really cool boutique vibe and is in a great location, but not close the centre FYI. The staff don't speak English and despite telling us they had a shuttle to the airport organize for us at 6am, they didn't, they just... More

This hotel was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Well situated and quiet boutique hotel close to the Istikal Cadessi and other cute streets and funicular to the harbour. We did take the deluxe suite and probably one stage down would have sufficed. Attentive staff and great area for breakfast. We used the roof top for a sunset drink... More

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.
