I've stayed in a few different places in Istanbul and in terms of overall rating, GalataLife is the best one. It's location is great. So close to the tourist places, shopping areas, metro, and bus stations.
The rooms are spacious, there's a roof terrace and a dining area looking onto the street. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I had lunch here too and I enjoyed the food.
When I last visited Istanbul I called into the hotel cafe to have some Turkish tea and snacks.
Great value for money, I recommend it.
