My wife and I stayed at Galateia Residence (in trendy Beygolu) the first night of our honeymoon.
Though our taxi (45 minute ride in traffic) had some difficulty finding the hotel, the front desk staff graciously met us 1/2 block away and assisted us to the hotel.
Upon checking in, we were informed we had received a complimentary upgrade to a larger apartment on a higher floor. The apartment was splendid and spacious - living room, den, full kitchen, 1 1/2 bathrooms (master had a Jacuzzi), and a lovely bedroom with views of the Bosporus. The hotel is very well located -- it's a half block from the vibrant Istikal Caddesi, but secluded enough that the street noise is non-existent. There are numerous good restaurants and bars nearby, as well as multiple public transit options that are merely steps away.
It was a fantastic experience; our only regret was not staying longer. The staff was excellent, the value tremendous, and the location phenomenal. We'll be back!
