I spent a night in galata istanbul hotel with my family.
The family room was very spacious and had two bathrooms.
and the most important point is that Ugur was very kind with us an the service was perfect!
If i come back in istanbul... i'll come back here again absolutely...

So I ended up at this hotel because my original hotel was overbooked. It is not the Hilton, but certainly has charm. The decor is a little dated, but that doesn't bother me as long as everything is clean and well maintained. I had the room right behind the breakfast area. It was spacious and clean. It had 2 beds sofa, TV, coffee and tea supplies, etc. The bathroom was well stocked with soaps, hair dryer, etc . Despite being on the main floor, I had no trouble sleeping. There is subway construction going on nearby but the noise seems to stop at around 10 in the evening. The staff were very helpful and attended to any requests quickly. Internet is free and works most times. The breakfast was adequate but then I am not particularly fussy. What makes this hotel very good, is really the staff. They have very good english skills and are always willing to provide information on getting around the old city. If I didn't have a previous reservation, I would have been quite happy to stay a few more nights at this hotel. Location is fantastic with lots of sites, shopping and restaurants.

I chose this hotel because of its location and family room. We are a family of 5, my husband and I, a 14, 11 and 3 year old. We had room 202 which included 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds, a sofa bed, a double bed and another sofa bed. The rooms are spacious enough with 2 big wardrobes. Air conditioner was only in our room but the kids seemed to sleep through the heat in the other room. The room was a back facing room to the train station but we hardly heard a sound from there, more noise from passerbys. The room was fairly clean, towels replaced daily and room cleaned too. Decor was nice, a bit unfinished but expected for the style of place it is. Breakfast was plenty with a few options. The hotel was close to the tram, train, ferries and a few minutes walk to Sultanahmet with the historic sites. We found it easy enough to get to Istiklal and Taksim by tram. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was a little high but we chose the convenience of the hotel location and room. Plenty of eateries around. Recommended place to stay.

Small hotel at walking distance from everything you would like to see in Istanbul (5 minutes to Aya Sofia)Rooms are very clean with beautiful decor and air conditioning that works perfectly. Bathrooms are modern though not extremely large. Breakfast is good with plenty of choices. Reception very kind with good spoken English. I will strongly suggest the Galata hotel especially for the quality versus price. I paid less then 40 euros and felt I was staying in a good 3 star hotel.

It was a nice located hotel. However, for the people that travel a lot, I am sure that it will be below their usual standards.
It is an old hotel, not very clean (hairs all over the room floor and duvets), with bothering sounds from the train station.
On the other hand, the personnel do their best to help the visitors and it is cheap.
Your choice...

Room Tip: Do not choose the rooms with view to train station.
