“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Great place to stay. Definitely recommend it!!!

The apartment is really big, spacious and clean.
It has a subway station half block away.
There is also a big street one block away where you can walk, nice stores and restaurants.
Mini markets where you can buy things to eat.

Wifi works perfectly.

Galateia Residence is an amazing hotel located on Istaklal street..

The rooms were very spacious with very elegant decor.

The living room was also spacious with a kitchenette.

The staff was very friendly.

Highly Recommended.

TIP: I had a bad experience when I hailed a cab from streets..So please Always book a taxi from the hotel which you are staying at..they usually know honest cab drivers.

This stay was way more than I ever hoped for. I didn't expect much from this low key establishment, but wow did they ever prove me wrong.

From the care and attention of the staff, to the lovely views from the room or apartment, all was just fantastic. We stayed in the top floor apartment (if you can afford it, do it, you won't be disappointed) and the room, the view, the balcony, everything was wonderful.

The Residence is situated about 5-10 min walking distance from the main strip in the old city and the Galateia tower. Walk down the hill about 10 min, get on the tram and head to any part of the city you want. Just a great location.

Special thanks to the staff, whoever owns this place, give them all a raise, they deserve it!

Room Tip: If possible, stay on the top floor, the views from there are awesome!

Staying here is like having a beautifully furnished, large apartment within steps of Istiklal Caddesi. Fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom plus separate "guest" toilet, lovely bedroom with huge, comfortable king bed, a luggage room with coat closet, and a large living room with big windows, dining table, television with lots of channels in many languages--all impeccably clean and stylish. The staff is also extremely helpful and friendly. An excellent alternative to staying in a large, impersonal hotel. Your cab driver may have a little trouble finding it, but once you get there you'll be happy.

Stayed for 4 nights and could have stayed for another 4 quite easily. Apartment was cleaned daily while we were out site seeing and breakfast was brought up to our room at whatever time we requested. Would stay again for sure!

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years and had a fantastic time! The street was very quiet but located off Istiklal caddesi which offered plenty to do and very close to the Galata Tower. Staff were lovely and very attentive. The apartment was spacious, beautiful and very well kept. We would absolutely stay here again and we highly recommend.
