A stunning boutique hotel in the heart of Istanbul . Comfort beyond expectation; style and calmness in equal measure. Having stayed in many of the finest hotels around Galata, I can honestly say that the quality and level of service that you will receive is exemplary. Chic unique places in every direction. I believe this combination design, location and affordable...

My advice to you, please avoid this hotel! They will ruin your vacation!!!!!!!! Already on the first day, we had a HUGE fight with the staff. After a long sightseeing day in Istanbul, we returned back to the hotel to take a shower, but OBS NO WATER! We called the reception and they said that they were working on the...

Updated and clean hotel with helpful and friendly staff. The best part of the hotel is the convenient location - right next to Galata Tower and Istikal Cadessi, which has a lot of shops and good restaurants. The rooms are small, but clean with updated bathrooms. Great value!!

Small but modern design. Very clean. Perfect spot close to some of the most authentic and charming shopping and nightlife in Istanbul. Couple of blocks away is the main walking strip where mornings and afternoons offer many cafe and restaurants options and nighttime is full of clubs and bars. Can't do better for the price.

We stayed here for three nights whilst exploring Istanbul and we absolutely LOVED the location - Beyoğlu was by far our favourite part of the city with it's cobbled streets lined with shops, bars, coffee shops and restaurants. The rooms were nicely done and very small (as we had expected) but the decor is modern, the room/bathroom clean and the...

You won't find better value in the Galata/beyoglu area. Rooms are nice and clean. We stayed here twice and were initially quite disappointed with how tiny the rooms were (shoeboxes). But we did a whole lot of research and found that all rooms in Istanbul are tiny tiny tiny (unless you go really high end). But I would definitely recommend...

After spending 2 weeks road-tripping around Turkey, we decided to stay in this hotel for our final stop for 4 days (to relax). When we arrived, the personnel was cold and seemed a bit judgmental (maybe not accustomed to welcome backpackers)... Felt some disdain somehow. Anyway, paid upfront and they didn't have change, so they suggested to offer us one...

It can be easily seen that rooms are designed by some artist but I honestly couldn't understand the whole having a massive sink thing in the middle of the room.

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.
