“More than your money's worth”
Reviewed 29 April 2011

I couldn't ask for more in a hotel. It may not be luxurious but the people (Baris, Veyser and the owners) and staff went their way out to make our stay meaningful. They helped and advised us on our tours, booked tickets, etc. They were really so nice and always with a cup of apple tea and smiling. The hotel itself is not big but very comfortable, there is wifi and computer access, the breakfast was good and healthy, there is also an elevator (tiny) and there is a restaurant beside the hotel owned by the same family. The rooms are not that big but comfortable in size with coffee and tea, heating and air conditioning.There is an al fresco lounge infront where you can people watch or have a water pipe or a drink. Places of interest are all within walking distance. You can take the tram at Sircesi if you do not want to walk.

I would definitely recommend this hotel especially for a good and clean holiday.

I will surely be back.

The hotel is in a small and quiet street just near the trainstation Sirkeci. Also the next tramstop is only a few steps away. The hotel is small, but clean and inviting. The staircase is very steep, but is also has an elevator. Our 3-bed-room was quite spacious, only the bathroom ist very small. Everything was clean. The personal is very friendly and helpful and speak quite good English.

The hotel is very good located (Sirkeci), few minutes away from main touristic sites such as Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazar, just few steps from Eminonu (almost all ferries depart from here), and also the tram station is very close. Although having this central location, the rooms are quiet.
The staff is willing to help and they always expect their guests with big smiles, which makes your stay very pleasant.
The breakfast is good. Nescaffe and tea are complimentary in the rooms.
Rooms are very clean (cleaned on daily basis) and beds are comfortable (new matresses).
They have a new restaurant right next door, and the hotel guests get discount.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Galata hotel has been closed in day of our arrival. We haven't received any message from hotel about this fact. When we have arrived to hotel at late night, to us have offered placing in other hotel. This hotel was awful! We couldn't remain there minutes. At late night we have been compelled to search for other hotel independently. Hotel Galata staff operated simply nonprofessionally and shockingly.

Galataistanbul, General Manager at Galata Istanbul Hotel, responded to this review, 18 January 2011
We have already communicated and sincerely apologies to this guest.

The Hotel was closed suddenly due to circumstances beyond our control but has now re-opened.

The Guest was collected from the Airport, free of charge and taken to another hotel ( on staff were at hand to look after her and her companies personally )

We regret any inconvenience caused but did endeavor to make the most approciate arrangment for their comfort at short notice.
