I had a very pleasant four-night stay at this new, prime-located property. I had stayed previously in the House Hotel's Nisantasi location, but enjoyed the Vault better. I had a generously-sized room, was pleased with the breakfast, and enjoyed a very nice dinner in the restaurant. The location is more of an "Istanbul Insider," spot, excellent if you know the city a bit already, or have a little sense of adventure. I was able to easily walk (10 - 15 minutes to Sishane) to the Metro, plus the Tram line is only 100 yards away. And Walk I did, all over the up-and-coming Karakoy neighborhood, to Galta and Istiklal nearby, and could have walked to the Old City and Grand Bazaar if I had wanted to. Overall I am glad I chose to stay there, and would seriously consider staying there again.
