Excellent location and view and amazing service! It made my trip to istanbul a great experience! The breakfast was really mouthwatering and the rooftop is very nice! The view of the river from there was breathtaking!

I along with my wife and couple of friends stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. This was our 2nd hotel in Istanbul. The location is simply superb of this small and lovely hotel.
The staff is friendly and the they speak English. They make all the efforts to make your stay memorable. The best part of the hotel is the terrace which looks the bosphorous sea. We even had a terrace party one night. The location of the hotel is very near to tram station (1 minute walk) from where you can catch tram to old city. Also Taksim Square is a 10-15 min walk (uphill).
The rooms have no/partial view of bosphorous and have nice comfortable bed. We had an awesome stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Chose a higher room with partial view.

We've just come back from a 2 day stay at the Karakoy Port Hotel and can thoroughly recommend it. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The room was immaculate and the buffet breakfast great.
The hotel is in a great location and only a 2 minute walk from the tram which takes you to the old town where all the major sites are located.
Will hopefully return to Istanbul in the near future and stay at the Karakoy Port Hotel

An ideal choice for business. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff helpful and attentive and the price reasonable; not paying for amenities you'll just never use. Transport links are good, for trams, ferries and both airports. Within walking distance are many good restaurants.
Overall a good hotel for those looking for something away from the standard 'chain' hotels.

From its red carpeted foyer and corridors to its elegantly white and gold furnished rooms Karakoy Port Hotel ozzes elegance The rooms are super clean with a deposit box, mini bar and tea and coffee making facilites. The bathroom is good sized and supplied with toiletries and hairdryer and white fluffy towels. The hotel is in a quiet area but within easy reach of all the main tourist attractions. We reached Galata Tower and Istiklal Street by walking. Sultanahmet Area is just beyond Galata Bridge and easily reached by public transport. We were picked up at the airport by the hotel and were welcomed at the hotel by smiling staff and cups of tea. Breakfast is very good and abundant with hot plates, cereals, variety of cold meats and cheeses, fruit and yogurt taken on the hotel's terrace with its stupendous views of the Bosphorus and Beyoglu. We found all the staff helpful and welcoming. I would like to thank the manager and all the staff for making our first stay in Istanbul so pleasant.

I loved Istanbul and our stay in this hotel. After researching where to stay, I had chosen Karakoy as a great location to discover this amazing city and did not regret at all my choice. One could take the tram to the tourist area or walk, and then walk to the new Istanbul area around Taksim.
Our stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. First of all the staff was very friendly and helpful. Hakan, Yunus, Omer and all the others were very patient with all our questions and always had a smile. They all speak very good English. The fact that this is a boutique hotel with only 20 rooms make it very personal. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast buffet is varied and the view of the Bosphorus and Beyoglu is awesome. I would certainly return here.

Perfect location for a base and the staff were unbelievably welcome and helpful, e.g, I had left a suitcase at a different Istanbul hotel while going on side trip, and asked for help to get a cab across the city and back to pick it up, the manager said no problem and I said I would go upstairs to my room to settle in, within half hour a knock at the door and my bag was there, the manager had sent for it to save me trouble, the next day we were going to the Tacsim neighborhood and mentioned it to one of our favorite bellboys, Bora he was getting off duty around dinner time and walked us to the area to show us how to get there , then our last day a few of us were going to grand bazaar our other favorite bell hop was getting off and again, we got a free guide to our place but he also served as translator in bargaining , I wouldn't expect that from anyone and lucky timing was perfect of when people were finishing shift but it shows how they treat you, Get a view room if possible, worth it, great neighbor hood , try Hamaan next door it is beautiful and newly restored to Ottoman glory

Room Tip: Water view is best but city view nice as well
