We had a great stay at the Karakoy rooms at the end of our trip to Turkey. The room was very stylish and comfortable. The rooms are also very large compared to other hotels in the price range. The Hotel is in an up and coming area of Istanbul with a number of stylish bars, cafes and restaurants. Overall great value for money and great location.

Perfect place to stay in Istanbul. Good location without being in the middle of the fray. The area is quite desserted at night but close enough to Galata Tower that you can walk to anything that you'd really want to do. My husband and I are from New York so having close proximity to the metro was very important to us and this couldn't be more perfectly situated in that regard (tram and funicular are super close). These rooms are also a great value for your mony because they are incredibly spacious. We didn't love Istanbul butwe definitely loved the hotel.

At first, i loved the pictures online. İt was actually way better in reality. Loved the quality of everything, the decor is very tasteful. spacious room and suite. Loved the ease of communicating with the manager/owner before and during my visit. There was a comment somewhere that the area aroundthe hotel wasnt all that, but its realy a very clean, quite area. İ loved it. The location is perfect: 5 minutes to tram, tunel, galata bridge. The reception staff are extremely helpful, polite and friendly. The one thing to improve is room service: and i dint have a chance to share this with the manager : they rearranged my stuff everyday and looked like they threw my clothes innthe closet, that was very annoying. onnmy first day, there were 2 Bathrobes and slippers that just disappeared from the rm after 1st day. İ was determined to enjoy my stay and decided tonignore them, but i honestly think that this hotel is too perfect to have a rm cleaning service like that. Lovvvvved the Karakoy rms.

The hotel is situated near the Galata Bridge on the north side of the Golden Horn inlet. The area is relatively quiet but with easy access to all the main sites of old Istanbul (it is easy to take a tram - or walk - across the bridge to visit the Blue Mosque and other sites). The Karakoy area is good for restaurants, including the one belonging to the hotel (Karakoy Lokantasi).

We had room 7 which is a described as a studio and is huge. It has a well-appointed kitchen (we didn't use this except for making tea) and a vast and very comfortable double bed. There are views across the Bosphorus. The room had air-conditioning.

The hotel is small (only 9 rooms I think) and just has a front desk and no public rooms apart from the adjoining associated restaurant. However it is very friendly, stylish and extremely well managed with an attention to detail. We were supplied with complimentary bathrobes, slippers and various toiletries in the bathroom. We were also presented with complimentary fresh fruit and daily bottled water in the fridge.

The breakfast in the restaurant next door was wonderful and not to be missed. It included fresh orange juice, a choice of breads, fresh fruit, olives, cheeses, salami, pastries and the best coffee you can get.

We intend to return!

We had a sensational 5 night stay at Karakoy Rooms and did not want to leave when it was over. The rooms are spacious and beautifully styled, the attention to detail is spot-on. The room had so much space it felt like an apartment, I just wish my apartment looked this good! The location was perfect, close enough to access the bustle of Sultanahmet easily, but blissfully free from the tourist hustle that goes with that area. Karakoy rooms is walking distance (or via the tunnel train) to Taksim and it's easy to explore Beyoglu and surrounding areas on foot. It's also close to public transport and a 2 minute walk from the ferry to the Asian side (Kadikoy). Do try the restaurant downstairs, the food was great for dinner and breakfast (we would have tried lunch too if we'd had longer). The staff were warm and helpful. I can't recommend Karakoy Rooms highly enough. I'd come back to Istanbul just to stay here.

Room Tip: The rooms on upper levels have views.
