“Feeling at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Great location - very close to all of the main streets and places and at the same time in a quiet place that you do not hear the noise of night Istanbul. Very polite staff, ready to help you in any matter. Cozy apartments, clean and spacious rooms, where you will find everything you need for a comfortable stay in the city.

It is all true: the apartments are in a cracking location (just on the edge of the old city, but in a very trendy area with lots of nice locals - infinitely better than Taksim Square), great staff(!), stunning rooms, great value for money, a quiet spot - you really could not beat it. And Istanbul is well worth a visit, too! All in all, this place deserves all of the plaudits and the awards. Thank you for a lovely stay!

These apartments are huge, with superior fittings - Vitra bathrooms, all mod cons, well stocked large fridge with minibar prices cheaper than local shops, fully serviced, kept tidy and spotless, with separate wifi in every apartment (no drop in download speeds) and satellite tv. The location is the best in town - in a quiet spot at the back the buzzing area of trendy bars and great restaurants of Beyoglu, and within walking distance of the Museum of Modern Art and the Bosphorus. We hopped up to the Babylon club for a gig, had a 40-spice steak on the rooftop at Leb-i Derya with amazing views, and a quiet Crimean with a piano in a former prison - all a short walking distance away. If we get the chance to return to Istanbul we will definitely stay there again.

The place is perfect in terms of location, rooms and service. It is quite astonishing to have all this at a very reasonable price. The other positive reviews about this place are bang on.

I recommend this place both for a holiday or a business trip.

Just off Istiklal street, near just about everything in the lovely and vibrant Beyoglu - an oasis of calm and comfort. Super friendly and helpful staff (thanks Nurhan and Serhat - hope i spelled your names right). I stayed here for a short business trip but would definitely return here with my family. I stayed in the smallest of their appartments which was already nice and spacious - wonder what the bigger ones are like, some even have a view of the bosphorus

Clean, new everything, nicely equipped kitchen, nice bathroom, comfy bed - and a guest bed brought in by housekeeping for my colleague no problem whatsoever. Didnt use the breakfast service since the coffee places nearby are so super nice.

Really looking forward to going back, i feel totally comfortable recommending Galateia wholeheartedly.

We were a group of 3 and stayed in one of the Junior Deluxe (1 bedroom) apartments at Galateia Residence. The apartment was very clean, with modern facilities, and more than enough space (around 1000 sq.ft/ 90 sq.m).

Overall:
Location - Great location, right next to Istiklal shopping street as well as the Sishane Metro Station. A few mins away from the Galata tower. Going to the old city was also easy, just take the Tunel funicular down to Karakoy and take a tram to Sultanahmet. Taxis were also easy to find at the Tunel square.

Staff - The front office staff were all very helpful and courteous, and made sure our stay in Istanbul was wonderful. The housekeeping staff did a great job every day.

Apartment - The apartment itself was great. The beds were well made and comfortable, with additional extra bed in the living room. The kitchen had all the modern appliances, and the cutlery looked pretty good too. The bathroom was sleek, classy, and well equipped. We also had a balcony with the view of the street. There was good security too, with a video intercom used by the reception at the entrance to grant access into the building.

The only recommendation I have is to improve the hotel signage, since our taxi driver couldnt find the hotel easily at night. Overall, a great stay and highly recommended!
