Very nice hotel with absolutely friendly stuff! The hotel ist quite new. The location ist excellent for a trip to Istanbul.
At the day when we arrived, the hotel stuff invited us to sit down for a coffee and a cake.

Room Tip: The rooms are not very big - but they are very stylish!

The hotel staff are extremely friendly and fullfill every wish!
The hotel is very stylish and located near to the shopping road and most of Istanbuls clubs.
People with a very light sleep should take along earmuffs, because there is a street infront and a mosque near the hotel.

Small hotels can be hit and miss but this one was definitely a hit. We found it very easily after catching a metro/tram into town from the airport at night. When we arrived we were invited to sit down for coffee and tea while the very friendly staff helped us with our belongings and checked us in. They introduced the local area on a map and gave us restaurant advice before helping bring our bags to our rooms.
Rooms are a tad on the small side but very comfortable and well equiped. They even had an ipod dock equipped clock radio so i could charge my phone and play my own music. hotel is clean throughout. breakfast was very nice.
We stayed for 4 days and the hotel's convenient location and facilities enabled us to thoroughly relax and enjoy our trip.
Only gripe, which was kind of our fault, was that my partner couldn't sleep well on the first night because of a noisy outside environment, but we later found out that it was because we didn't shut our window...

As we had intensive time to visit the historic and touristic sites of the the city,we searched for a hotel in a suitable district which is qualified international standards.
Every thing was great. friendly staff were ready to support us. the Hotel design was talented. Also breakfast was suitable but not enough attractive.
The main problem was noisy neighborhood that the staff remind it was because of a traffic problem of Taqsim Sq. in those days. a problem was in the room toilet and they changed our room kindly in the same floor.
In our last day we reached to Istanbul modern design bienial very easy , as it was close to our hotel.
We prefer stay in this hotel in our future trip to istanbul.

My husband and I arrived to this hotel at night, coming from Izmir and had stayed in a huge hotel there. I knew this wasn't a big hotel but maybe we were expecting something a little larger. So we arrived, after being wondering around and asking people on the street how to get there. When we were in front of the hotel trying to cross the very busy street, the guy who was at reception came out to help us and greeted us warmly. He gave us some tips about where to have dinner that night. Our room seemed very small compared to the one we left in Izmir, we felt a little disappointed. Next morning when we had breakfast we began to appreciate being in this small but charming hotel. Breakfast was delicious! staff at the restaurant was super attentive and friendly. Everybody at front desk went beyond to grant even our smallest request. The room is indeed small, bathroom is small also but after 3 days of being here we didn't mind that anymore. Bed was comfortable and everything was impeccable. So we came to the conclusion that bigger isn't always better. Love the SUB! People really made the difference here!

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Beautiful touches all around. Breakfast - divine!

Not close to the buzz of the 'city' - however closely located to train station. Not ideal for exploring the city at night if you'd like to walk. Other than that - perfect!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Given the boggling variety of architectural and design styles that crowd the eye in Istanbul, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised to find the industrial-chic SuB Hotel in Karaköy (née Galata), the ancient commercial and cultural core of the city. And yet, let’s be honest: it is a bit of a surprise. SuB Hotel, quirky capitalization and all, looks more like a place you’d find in Greenpoint (Brooklyn) or Neukölnn (Berlin) than in the oldest part of one of history’s great crossroads of civilizations. ... more   less
