Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been to 12 countries in my life and I have to say that this was one of the most enjoyable times staying in a hotel in my life. Everyone there was so friendly and made sure I didn't need anything everything was clean very immaculate I got to speak with the general manager, and he is a great person made sure that I didn't need anything any transportation and gave me tips on other places to visit around the world. This is the second M Gallary hotel that I have stayed at and they are both five-star and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I would certainly recommend it this hotel to anyone solo or as a family. The area is wonderful and quiet at night. Lots of restaurants in the area I could go on and on, but I will leave it with one of the best hotels in the world.

I have recently made a three night stay at this hotel and have been very happy with my experience here. The front desk staff were friendly and very helpful with all sorts of advice. The rooms were spacious and cleaned to a very high standard. I have previously read reviews saying the housekeeping staff had been very slow with fulfilling requests but I have not experienced that at any time. There are some small improvements that could be made. The lobby bar is a bit lifeless and there are some small details like non functioning side lighting in corridors that should be fixed, but they were not fundamental to the positive experience of the place. Overall, I am tremendously pleased with the quality of stay at this hotel and would definitely stay here when in Istanbul again!

It was the first time to travel Istanbul. Actually, I was worried about Hotel condition and environment because I travelled to Istanbul with my family. Even, I had booked small room by mistakenly. At the reception We were informed that it would not be comfortable for 4 people. So, we were offered a more suitable room at no extra charge. The room has a sea view and was very nice, very clean and the beds were really comfortable. Breakfast was incredible. I appreciate the hospitality, very warm care, great support, etc. The location is just perfect. It is close to good restaurants, the metro station, Taksim square, Galata Tower and etc. All staff are very friendly and helpful. In particular, we would like to express our gratitude to Mrs. Shahribanu, who created a wonderful environment to feel comfortable. She approached us frequently to find out if we needed anything. Additionally Thanks to Mr. Ufuk, Erman and Eyup for showing in real care. We had wonderful 2 nights stay at the Galata Hotel. I highly recommend it. The best place for your Istanbul adventure!

Galata M Gallery hotel in Accor family hotels. That is why I chose it. I’m diamond Accor member and use all benefits in all beautiful and high quality Accor hotels around the World. Strongly recommend everyone do the same. Galata have perfect location. I walked on foot to main sightseeing. Check in was 1 minute because online check in via Accor app. Staff was nice and helpful. Ulas and Sahin perfectly helped me, they were polite. I like Galata. Of course will come back.

We stayed here for a few nights en-route to Oman. The hotel is on the opposite side of the river to the main sights of Istanbul, but it is an easy walk across the bridge, or to the ferry terminals. We had a Superior kingsize bedroom which was very good, but had no views. It was also designed for a disabled person and I'm not sure whether this was why there were no shelves in the bathroom to place your toiletries which was very annoying. Like many hotels you could not put a plug in the wash hand basin & there was no flannel. We also had to ask for some more coat hangers - only 5 in wardrobe. Breakfast was well presented. To British people I would say that many of the items were for a more eastern European palette, however, there still a good choice. The first night we ate in the in house restaurant. The food was good, but the menu was only accessible by scanning a QR code. I know it is probably an age thing, but we found it difficult to look at menu. The remaining nights we went to a lovely restaurant just down the road on way to bridge.

The hotel is a short walk from the lively area. It is in a quiet location. We are here for our 25th anniversary year trip.i am a Accor All platinum member and I must give a special cheer to the Front Desk Manager Mr. UZUK who greeted us very kindly and upgraded our room. He was also kind enough to contact the Manager Mr. MURAT who gave us complimentary breakfast for our stay. And a special thanks to the smiling concierge Mr. EMIRHAN who was kind enough to show us to our room and handled our luggage swiftly. Very impressive for my first time staying in Istanbul. Thank you for the warm welcome..highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Tho the hotel location was very good. It’s at a walkable distance to Galata tower and Taksim street, the service of the hotel was questionable. Everytime we would ask for something, we wouldn’t get it till we called at least 3 times. Even tho they say kids stay free, I had once asked for milk for him and they charged for it. Also we had booked a king room well in advance but a twin room was given to us.

MGallery Galata Istanbul is a remarkable hotel that seamlessly combines luxury with a welcoming atmosphere. A special thanks to the General Manager, Kerem, for his outstanding leadership and to Ufuk at the front office for exceptional service. Their attention to detail and dedication to guest satisfaction greatly enhanced our stay. The hotel’s prime location in Istanbul offered convenient access to the city’s rich cultural experiences. The service throughout our stay was impeccable, reflecting the high standards of the MGallery brand. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a memorable stay in Istanbul!
