Noble House Galata
Ranked #470 of 1,237 Specialty Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

I have stayed in Eklektik several times in the past four years - and have recommended it to friends who have travelled to Istanbul. Have never been disappointed, and always impressed. The rooms in the old building are thoughtfully designed - although admittedly not spacious they are a all calming. The owners and staff are all service-minded and treat guests as if they were staying in their own home - they ensure you get the best out of Istanbul - be this tips for local restaurants, bars, museums or just a simple airport transfer. And the breakfast is fabulous - usual Turkish breakfast fayre - eggs, tomatoes, cheese, olives - as well as cakes and jam for those wanting their continental. Lashings of coffee, tea and fresh orange juice too.

Avoid the swanky soulless five-star hotels and have a real treat staying at Eklektik!

I found the Eklektik quite by chance. I needed a room the following week for one night on my way back through Istanbul. The proprietor could not have been more helpful and friendly and welcoming. My room was lovely, very comfortable bed, lots of clean fresh towels and a great breakfast that set me up for a days travelling. The little courtyard at the front was a lovely place to sit in the shade. Highly recommended.

Free Wi-Fi, nice area, good breakfast, your own bathroom (very small though). Different room themes (we stayed in the one with the disco balls).

We very much enjoyed staying over New Year at the Eklektik Guest House!
The host team was extremely friendly and very responsive to our needs: We booked at very short notice, arrived early in the morning and needed a day room before going back.
Breakfast was very delicious, as authentic, I guess, as it can be, served in a charming family atmosphere which, at the same time, acts as an information exchange about Istanbul.
Price and full cash payment on arrival can be an issue, but, for us, given the central location (Beyoglu) and the lack of adequate alternatives (late booking over New Year) OK.

This hotel is the best that you will find in Istanbul at this category. Not only for its comfortable and charming facilities, but also for the treatment they offer. You are greeted by the hotel owner, a wonderful warm Turkish, always ready to give tips and resolve any trouble. The breakfast is hearty and delicious. The rooms ate comfortable and spacious. For those willing to enjoy the busy nightlife of Istanbul is also the perfect location. In addition to bars, restaurants and shopping, the hotel is 10 minutes away from the historic city center. They are just beside the metro. The staff makes you feel at home. I highly recommend it.

The Eklektik is eclectic, it's special in its eccentricity and it's uniqueness. The host Can (pronounced Chan), is extremely charming and helpful as soon as you step inside you become part of the "extended family". Dilek who prepares a lovely wholesome breakfast welcomes you each morning with her bright smile! And urges you to savour more of her cooking.

The Eklektik is not perfect but that's exactly what's perfect about it, it's a living organism and once you are there you become part of it! Well done Can, Surinam & Dilek

After great difficulty finding it, this place grew on us and we enjoyed our stay very much. We had the top floor of a 5 floor walk up so make sure you are ok with that many stairs. The staff helped us carry our bags up. Once up there, we had a nice view of the Bosphorus from a charming roof top deck. Make sure you ask in advance for very detailed directions in English and Turkish. Our taxi driver from Taksim Square had no idea how to get there even though we pointed on a map. There is no sign out front and the "street" they are on is really on alley. The room was small but fine. The breakfasts were great and the staff friendly and helpful. They made us feel very much at home.
