This hotel is very good situated in the popular Beyoglu quarter in Istanbul. Excellent roof terrace with a gorgeous view over the City, mosques and Bosporus Bay. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was tasteful furnished on the 5th floor with an amazing view. The other rooms I got a glance into were quite suburbany furnished but... More

This lovely boutique hotel is positioned right in the heart of Beyoglu. We stayed here for 4 nights. Our room wasn't massive but it was beautifully decorated and made the most of the space. It was on the first floor and had a wee balcony overlooking the street. It was a nice wee haven to come back to and relax... More

This is a charming boutique hotel in Beyoglu right near the embassies, fancy hotels and the main shopping street. The staff is helpful and the rooms are immaculate and elegant, if small. The building is a beautiful 19th century townhouse with a Parisian style elevator. The beds and linen is high quality and a box of supplies you might need... More

Galata Antique Hotel is located in a very elegant building in Pera area, near the Tunnel. It's a very nice place to stay with good staff and breakfast served in a pleasent terrace, although the deluxe room I stayed was a little bit too small for the price... Patricia Gouvêa, Brazil

Brilliant location off Istikal Caddesi ( the main shopping street in the City), in the happening Beyoglu area of Istanbul with great access to local transport networks. Everything is on your doorstep day and night. The whole area had a pleasantly bohemian feel about it. Of course this comes with a certain amount of noise, so you may want to... 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.
