Upon arriving to the Sub Hotel in Karakoy, we truly loved it. We spent a week there last month, and it felt like visiting an old friend's home, Perfect location to explore either sides of the Galata Bridge, Comfortable warm atmosphere, stylish modern decor, friendly helpful patient staff, it is exactly as as it's shown in the pictures, and as the hotel staff describe it, hip hotel in a hip location. The breakfast every morning is the best treat, we would look forward to the breakfast every morning. The staff are especially helpful in recommending attractions, restaurants, and even helped us look for musical interment shops because my husband was looking for a turkish instrument. We also had a Turkish bath at the near by Kilic Ali Pasha Hammami, recommended by the staff at the hotel, they booked for each my husband and I separately, because that is the policy of the Hammam, ladies in the morning until the afternoon, then men from the afternoon until closing time, it was an amazing experience, well worth it. Also, another wonderful thing is that the staff at the Sub Hotel will open an Istanbul map with u while they serve you a welcome drink or Turkish tea as soon as you arrive, and recommend all sorts of places for you to discover in the area, it really feels like visiting old friends, because only old friends make you feel like they'd go out of their way to make you feel this comfortable and make sure you enjoy their city. We will most definitely be visiting again, who can stay away with such details touches as giving a gift to your guests as they leave.
