This is the second time I am staying at Bankerhan. It is not swanky, but it is in a great location, it is very clean and the staff are amazing and very helpful. They run it like its their own house. If you need a straightforward, no fuss place to stay in a great location, Bankerhan is the place. Near great restaurants and art spaces.

Room Tip: choose a room with a view!

I was looking for a convenient, modern, clean and not too pricy hotel for a layover of one night in Istanbul and Bankerhan fit the bill perfectly.

How to get there
The hotel is located about 10 min. walk from Sishane metro station coming from Istanbul Ataturk Airport (I would recommend taking public transport - get the Istanbul card and use it city wide, just add money when needed). Be mindful that the area around Galata Towers is fairly hilly and mostly is paved with brick - hence if you have lots of luggage, might be worth taking a quick taxi from the metro station to the hotel (around 5-10 TL).

Location
The hotel is located in a quaint area with an artsy, quirky cafe right next door. It is about a 5 minute walk to the shore and Karakoy station. Loads of interesting shops, still not too touristy, but everything you need is within a 10 min. walking radius.

About the hotel & rooms
check-in was quick and efficient. The room is modern and smartly designed making use of the space efficiently (some might say the room is small, but i thought it was plenty considering you won’t spend much time there anyways). The bed was super comfortable.
It has most modern amenities and was clean and neat which is always important to me.

The breakfast spread was fairly underwhelming - would have been nice to see some more locally inspired dishes - hence take it more as ‘continental’. There are tons of cafes and bakeries in the area, so I would recommend venture out and make breakfast part of your planned route.

The team was helpful and very friendly though not too well informed of some basic information, e.g. bus to Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen airport, timings, bicycle rentals, walking tours etc.

I would definitely go back mainly due to location and the room quality and design.

PROS
+ location
+ cleanliness
+ room design
+ friendly staff
+ Value for money
+ free wifi
+ great mattress and bedding

CONS
- knowledge of staff (but they definitely tried)
- breakfast spread

This modern and stylish hotel is perfectly situated within a few minutes walk from the Galatea tower, the main shopping district, the tram line and lovely restaurants on the water.

Very helpful and friendly staff, lovely breakfast, and newly refurbished boutique rooms.

Definitely the best hotel I've stayed in, in Istanbul!

Highly recommended.
