“Great location, but lack of management response to guest needs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

As living on what is now serviced apartment, great location staff friendly, but if stay longer than week bring on toiletries as per contract suppose to replace soaps and shampoo but it is not the case, asked for it no willing or response to have this sorted.

Room Tip: If staying longer bring your own soap and bath gel

Great hotel and excellent staff. Taxi needed to get to the city centre. Rooms were a good size and the bathroom was of a very high quality. Room service was efficient and prompt. Breakfast was a buffet and there was substantial food available. There was an X ray machine to check luggage entering the hotel.

Great place to stay. Definitely recommend it!!!

The apartment is really big, spacious and clean.
It has a subway station half block away.
There is also a big street one block away where you can walk, nice stores and restaurants.
Mini markets where you can buy things to eat.

Wifi works perfectly.

Galateia Residence is an amazing hotel located on Istaklal street..

The rooms were very spacious with very elegant decor.

The living room was also spacious with a kitchenette.

The staff was very friendly.

Highly Recommended.

TIP: I had a bad experience when I hailed a cab from streets..So please Always book a taxi from the hotel which you are staying at..they usually know honest cab drivers.

This stay was way more than I ever hoped for. I didn't expect much from this low key establishment, but wow did they ever prove me wrong.

From the care and attention of the staff, to the lovely views from the room or apartment, all was just fantastic. We stayed in the top floor apartment (if you can afford it, do it, you won't be disappointed) and the room, the view, the balcony, everything was wonderful.

The Residence is situated about 5-10 min walking distance from the main strip in the old city and the Galateia tower. Walk down the hill about 10 min, get on the tram and head to any part of the city you want. Just a great location.

Special thanks to the staff, whoever owns this place, give them all a raise, they deserve it!

Room Tip: If possible, stay on the top floor, the views from there are awesome!

Staying here is like having a beautifully furnished, large apartment within steps of Istiklal Caddesi. Fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom plus separate "guest" toilet, lovely bedroom with huge, comfortable king bed, a luggage room with coat closet, and a large living room with big windows, dining table, television with lots of channels in many languages--all impeccably clean and stylish. The staff is also extremely helpful and friendly. An excellent alternative to staying in a large, impersonal hotel. Your cab driver may have a little trouble finding it, but once you get there you'll be happy.
