“4 Floors: Beautiful Design, Personalized Service, Excellent Value”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

I loved 4 Floors.

Murat Topaloğlu greeted us with a huge smile and a warm handshake followed by a glass of tea and a map that was personally highlighted with his spot-on recommendations for restaurants and bars. Murat showed us our gorgeous apartment and got us oriented. We rented Floor 1 and it is perfect for a single traveler or a couple who won’t be shy about the clear glass bathroom space. The actual apartment exceeded my expectations. It exudes character. I loved the blending of historic building materials and the contemporary. I loved the furnishings, the ceilings, and the view. We were at home immediately and I felt like I could live there for a very long time.

God is in the details and at 4 Floors the details are what distinguish this design apartment from many other accommodations. Creative design details like Sema Topaloğlu’s delicious organic wood and silver leaf headboard, long desk, and custom steel key chain, tell a story about where you are. Other practical and welcomed details such as two large bottles of water in the refrigerator and coffee and tea on the kitchen counter did not go unnoticed.

The Galata neighborhood is gritty and atmospheric and feels undiscovered even though it’s a stone’s throw away from busy Istiklal Caddesi. There is a beautiful gallery next to 4 Floors with a verdant outdoor sculpture garden (our view.) A handful of cool designer shops mingle with local businesses and Istanbul’s first Vietnamese restaurant, Cochine, which was just reviewed in the latest Time Out Istanbul.

My only regret about staying at 4 Floors is that we only stayed for three nights. You should consider 4 Floors if you appreciate beautiful design and highly personalized service and excellent value. Trust me, you won’t want to leave!

great place, central, quiet, friendly service-the way art hotels should be-one have the feeling being at a private house-minimalistic but at the same time you have everything you need and also a lot of sun and light-thank you, murat! i will recommend your hotel to my friends in berlin and around the world!

4floors is a great location for day & night city views. We spent 3 nights in the penthouse which is spacious and well furnished. The roof top terrace needs some 'gardening' TLC, so does the interior. If you're looking for a central location, designer's look&feel and great views I can highly recommend the penthouse. If charming host Murat takes 1 week of rental period and fixes all the small broken or run down stuff, I'm convinced 4floors can again compete with all 5star hotels in Istanbul.

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the hussle & buzzle of the city but still have quietness to sleep (ei...

We were disappointed with our recent stay at 4floors and I absolutely agree with Fab5Fredday that the place is slightly tired and not really functional. We were originally booked in the 3rd floor however there was no airconditioning which I would have expected at the price they were quoting. Accordingly we asked to be upgraded to the 4th floor/penthouse (with airconditioning) which Murat did at the appropriate cost however whilst having fabulous views and the rooms were a fantastic size the fridge did not work as it required defrosting (which we did ourselves), the place was not veryclean and the shower and lights did not work properly.

Unfortunately we decided to cut our visit short and go to a hotel in Pera Place which was excellent. I do believe the place has a lot of potential, Murat and his team just need to pay attention to the details.

So, the 4floors is definitely a great place to stay in terms of location and their beautiful, spacy rooms. However, it is not being kept properly, which is sad. It could also use a thorough cleaning.

Sad, because the rooms are very nice, with very expensive designer details etc. And Murat, who is nice guy too, and supposedly in charge, seems a little too laid back in terms of making sure that things, which need to be fixed, get fixed. Also, he is not instructing guests as to i.e. the fact that if you are not very careful with for instance the penthouse shower, you will - and I reiterate WILL - cause a massive flooding of the entire complex. That is beyond my understanding why he is not initially making sure that guests are aware that not all solutions, although looking nice and fancy, have been chosen in terms of their functionality. Slowly, but very surely, the place is getting tired. As stated, it is not very clean - and we are not sensitive in this regard. Light bulbs - a very small thing - are not getting replaced. Lamps, which at some point stopped working, are not getting fixed - at the penthouse for instance about 1/3 of all lamps were not working, when we visited. And, BTW, there are no chairs whatsoever for the huge penthouse balcony, which is SO weird. Windows have not been washed in ages, which is actually an issue considering the fact that the penthouse is, yes, a penthouse, with windows from top to bottom all over the place.

Again, great place in many ways - but, getting tired. If someone does not take lead on start fixing this place up again, then give it 3-4 years and it will look completely worn out.

4 Floors in Istanbul is a great place to stay for those travellers that want to see another site of Istanbul and do have a more styleoriented way of life. The appartements are very nice furnished and located in the heart of Beyoglu. Nice cafés, stores, bars and restaurants are a short walk away.

Additional to these facts, Murat the owner of the house, is very helpful in making suggestions (as well as reservations, since he knows many owners of restaurants, bars and clubs by himself), so you will have plenty of unforgetable memories when leaving Istanbul at the end of your stay. We can recommend 4 Floors and will come back!

We just stayed at 4floors and had such an amazing time. It was so beautiful, close to everything and yet quiet. Murat was the ultimate host by greeting us with white wine and making us feel at home. I was here for work for Starbucks and enjoyed every minute of Istanbul. This is a highly recommended place to stay.
