Being a hotel director I appreciate good hotels and pay attention to location, practicality and service. At first we were happy to find this hotel - The location was great, rates seemed good, rooms seemed clean (although basic Ikea style) but the longer we were there the less comfortable we felt. The rooms are actually quite small. You have a cupboard but it is blocked by a bed side table, so we lived out of the suitcase. The room also turned out to be noisy as you could hear the guests speaking next door. Our window was not outward facing but towards a tiny inner courtyard that is next to reception so you could hear chit chat from reception and the set up of the breakfast in the morning. Staff did not seem to be aware (or care?). We moved across to Suite Home Galata (diagonally across the road) after a few days where the rate was the same and service + room quality of double the standard. That made us realize how poor the quality of Nar Galata actually was in relation to it's price.

Room Tip: Choose a street facing room. It is actually more quiet.

Pretty cozy hotel, right in the historical center of Istanbul. Free wifi (although can be slow). Staff speaks good english and will help you to find the nearest club / mall, so that you're not lost. Take a look at their offers to take you from the airport for free, or for a boat trip ;)

A nice small hotel situated in a great location, next to Galata tower, very well renovated. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is very clean, the rooms comfortable despite the fact that there should be more space for luggages and clothes.

Room Tip: It is not recommended for persons with disabilities as there is now elevator (the building is an old...
