4Floors Istanbul
Ranked #239 of 1,260 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The rooms are large, modern and relatively clean. The view from 3rd floor upwards is great. The hotel is located in a hip area and all the nice streets, restaurant and shops were close. Istanbul in general was a positive surprise: clean, intense and great sightseeing. Murat was very friendly and showed us s all the nice places to go with a small map.

To get a "very good" rating, the "hotel" or better appartements would need to improve a couple of things. First the whole organization of transport did not work at all for us (taxi did not come, did not find the hotel, etc.). You can hear also almost everything from the upper floor and we had bad luck that a group of British girls rented the penthouse above and kept us awake 2 nights with partying etc., which in a hotel would be more quickly addressed then standalone appartements. Also the heating in the room was not activated when we got up and wanted to have shower at first morning and even worse, we had water dropping to our bed from the shower in the upper floor. Breakfast does not exist but that's ok, there is enough restaurant close to the appartements.

To summarize, if the lack of service and noise from neighbours is not an issue for you, then this is the perfect place to stay.

Wow absolutely loved this place, if you come to Istanbul this is the place to stay. Soooo much better than staying in a soulless hotel. Cool interior, perfect location, amazing views from the penthouse and a perfect host. The super super king size bed was uber comfortable. When we come back we are going to stay here. Left with lots of happy memories, a belly full of great Turkish food and some top quality designer bags! ;) Thank you Murat, Chris & Sam x

Room Tip: Go for it, get the penthouse you won't regret it!

we stayed at 4 floors for a weekend and it was just our style. it goes without saying that the design is amazing--you can read about the whole design background on their website. but what adds to the design is the historical building itself and the way the design has seamlessly worked to bring out the historical charm by preserving the original wooden floorboards, exposed brick walls, etc. The high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows make the living area spacious and airy with lots of natural light, and the balcony has a great view over the local neighborhood. The rooms aren't quite as big as the professional photos make them look, but that's true for any website photos for lodging.

Murat was very warm and hospitable even though we booked last minute, and made us feel right at home. Would definitely recommend this to anyone else visiting Istanbul that wants a more unique accommodation and not just a touristic hotel.

Wide wood plank floors, brick accented walls, wood ceilings, modern furniture - and, this is your home in Istanbul. The stylish apartment studios are in the perfect location in Galata, on an up and coming street in the center of the restaurant/café areas. It was a pleasant 20 min walk to the old city, crossing Galata bridge, and just a few blocks from most of the hip restaurants you'll want to try in Istanbul.

Murat was very welcoming, arranging our transportation and giving us advice about the area. We enjoyed getting to know him during our stay.

The only thing to note are that it's on a steep hill (like in San Fran), so be ready to work those muscles (though we always found a cab in less than a minute, if needed). Also, there were no curtains on the first floor; we didn't mind being woken up naturally by the light, but just something to note. I would also highly recommend the higher floors so you have a view; we didn't book our room early enough.

We loved our stay and would return to 4Floors! We really felt like locals staying here and it made our trip to Istanbul perfect. Thanks Murat!

We stayed at 4floors for five days during a recent visit to Istanbul. Murat was extremely helpful in the lead up as well as throughout our stay, giving us some great tips on where to eat, go out etc. The restaurant he booked for us on our first night was the best meal we had in Istanbul. My partner and I stayed on the first floor apartment and loved it. It mixed contemporary design with some Turkish elements and was in a great part of town - a short stroll to some excellent cafes, restaurants and shops and close to the main sites. 4Floors is perfect for anyone looking for an authentic and sophisticated experience of Istanbul life. Highly recommended.

My husband and I travelled to Istanbul for 7 days after having visited Paris on our Honeymoon. 4floors was a welcome change from our cramped Paris hotel room. We stayed on the second level of 4 floors and we're welcomed by a very informative owner, Murat.

The suite was clean and spacious. If you are interested in design - this a place to stay. Having a kitchenette was wonderful as we spent almost everyday buying different food items at various markets.

Murat was invaluable - he arranged cars to and from the airport and was a wealth of information regarding dining and nightlife in Istanbul.

The only issue we had was noise. Our suite overlooked a courtyard which was very loud with children playing and yelling. There was also a lot of construction in the area which began at 7:30 and went all day.

Overall a great alternative to a hotel, and we loved staying out of the touristy areas.

The apartment has a very good feel. It is more like staying at an independent apartment in a community. I stayed on the second floor which only has community views rather that scenic views. The price was still high. I greatly enjoyed the stay. The staff is good and Murat is very helpful and provides good recommendations. The payment arrangements were a hassle as they want to be paid in Euro in cash on checkout not credit card. I was pre-warned. After some inconvenience, i used Paypal. (It is a challenge to use Paypal in Istanbul because they don't want to approve the transaction at a foreign location ). The apartment is spacious but only has a few chairs not a couch. It has a washing machine and ok Internet.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the water, make sure that you get a high floor. There is no lift.
