Stayed here for 2 nights in March. We booked a standard room but on checking in we were upgraded which was great. The bed was very comfortable, heating was a bit tricky to control but I just opened the window. Room was lovely just like the photos. Roof top bar had a stunning romantic view. Breakfast was fine. The Galata...

The staff at Vault Karakoy make this hotel worth 5*. They are extremely kind and helpful and go the extra mile to make your stay truly comfortable and enjoyable. For instance, Mehmet at reception walked me to the nearest Pharmacy to pick up medicine and then walked me back. Although it was not too far, we crossed an underground tram...

The quality of the facilities and service is typical of a very expensive luxury hotel; this was a very enjoyable stay at a reasonable price. Room was very modern and comfortable. Breakfast was nice Turkish buffet with hot food to order. Good spa.

I stayed at Vault Karakoy for one night. Was very impressed with the level of service and attention to detail put into my short stay. All the staff were very welcoming. Loved, loved, loved the view from my balcony. Great location - in walking distance to great restaurants, cafes, and shops. I would definitely stay again for a longer visit...

During my trip to Istanbul, I was looking to immerse myself into a neighborhood. While I wanted to visit historical sites, I also wanted to limit cab rides during my four night stay. This hotel is the perfect location for anyone who wants to explore local neighborhoods, and still be in walking distance to the major tourist destinations near Sultanahmet....

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
