Galateia Residence

Reviewed 7 April 2012

Galateia is wonderfull located, close to Galata Tower and to metro and tram stations. Although Istikal street is just up the street the place is quiet. There are a lot of shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood but only small places to buy food so cooking a real meal is not easy. WI-FI internet works everywere and the bathroom is not only modern and spacious but very confortable.

Room Tip: We stayed at the 3 floor apartment with a mezzanine. The bedroom is spacious has lots of light and a...

In a very quiet street but Tunel tram station is only a minute of walk away. No taxi driver can find the whereabouts of the street but u can ask for Tunel station and just walk a bit if u hv no luggage. But your main visit will be mainly Old istanbul. This hotel is less convenient.

The room (apartment) is very spacious and very clean. Some rooms are in renovation too so they are now newly refurbished. The kitchen comes with everything u need for cooking and dining. The service is almost wonderful except they left behind a top did not belong to us in our laundry and gave us a shopping bag did not belong to us when we left. That was a bit worrying. Otherwise, their service is perfect.

Although there were some initial bumps with our reservations, the staff at the Galateia Residence went above and beyond to make sure we felt welcomed and all issues were resolved. As with the pictures posted up of the place, they do not do it justice. The space is modern, comfortable, and new (the shower is great!). It's also, in my opinion, in the best location possible. The metro station is literally right up the street and you're super close to the tram that takes you to Sultanahmet and the older areas (which I wouldn't stay in for the fact that it's way too crowded there and hard to get in and out if you need to take a taxi). Istiklal, one of the liveliest places in Istanbul, with shops, restaurants, and amazing night life also feels right outside the building as it's so close, but as Galateia is slightly off of Istiklal, you still get the quiet and access to taxis (no cars on Istiklal). All that aside, the staff at Galateia are some of the nicest people we met in Istanbul. Always happy to help with directions, advice on where to shop and eat, and just great people. We really enjoyed our stay and if I ever make the trip out to Istanbul again, I'll be sure to stay here!
