I have stayed at this hotel multiple times and the high quality service and attention to detail is impeccable. The staff is amazing plus the rooms are comfortable and immaculate. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere other than Bankerhan when visiting Istanbul.

Hotel's Favourite
I’ve been travelling through Europe for the past 3 months and have been living pretty much in hotels. I’m happy to say I saved the best one til last. The Manager and staff have been absolutely wonderful with such generous hospitality. Not only did they change my “non refundable” room due to flight cancellation but also gave me choice of room! The location is amazing, best food in close proximity or just a take a little longer stroll for a huge selection of eats! The bed is so comfortable, rooms cleaned every day and it’s quiet! I’ve extended my stay here by another 2 weeks as I feel like I’m at home and I love Istanbul!

After several trips to Istanbul, I found the place that I'll stay for every trip in the future. Everyone at Bankerhan was incredibly welcoming and helpful. They accommodated extra nights easily, upgrading my room since I was going to be there longer. They even let me compare rooms and choose which one I wanted! The view from the fifth floor corner room was unbeatable. I can't wait to go back and try the sixth floor! Location is unbeatable as well- close to Galata and Karakoy, but not in the middle of busy streets.

The place is clean, cute and cozy, single room is quite small, but not annoying. the staff speak enough english, which is rare in turkey, and they do their best to make your stay comfortable, they bring a cute breakfast to your room if you wouldn’t want to have it in lobby. Karakoy station is 2 mins away and many cafes and restaurants are nearby.

Room Tip: The area is not the best choice for elders, as there are so many steps and uphill places around.

I booked the room with terrace in the 6. floor and it is the most beautiful view I ever had in my life. The hotel stuff is very friendly and the hotel manager Zeynep is an angel. The room was clean, very modern and comfortable. I had a surgery during staying there and couldn't get out, but I had so much help in getting medicine and food, that I felt very safe and well. I think the room "601" has the most beautiful view in the whole area at each time of the day. Kind regards, Tina.
