Galata Istanbul Hotel
Ranked #592 of 1,173 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 28 July 2012

I chose this hotel because of its location and family room. We are a family of 5, my husband and I, a 14, 11 and 3 year old. We had room 202 which included 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds, a sofa bed, a double bed and another sofa bed. The rooms are spacious enough with 2 big wardrobes. Air conditioner was only in our room but the kids seemed to sleep through the heat in the other room. The room was a back facing room to the train station but we hardly heard a sound from there, more noise from passerbys. The room was fairly clean, towels replaced daily and room cleaned too. Decor was nice, a bit unfinished but expected for the style of place it is. Breakfast was plenty with a few options. The hotel was close to the tram, train, ferries and a few minutes walk to Sultanahmet with the historic sites. We found it easy enough to get to Istiklal and Taksim by tram. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was a little high but we chose the convenience of the hotel location and room. Plenty of eateries around. Recommended place to stay.

Small hotel at walking distance from everything you would like to see in Istanbul (5 minutes to Aya Sofia)Rooms are very clean with beautiful decor and air conditioning that works perfectly. Bathrooms are modern though not extremely large. Breakfast is good with plenty of choices. Reception very kind with good spoken English. I will strongly suggest the Galata hotel especially for the quality versus price. I paid less then 40 euros and felt I was staying in a good 3 star hotel.

It was a nice located hotel. However, for the people that travel a lot, I am sure that it will be below their usual standards.
It is an old hotel, not very clean (hairs all over the room floor and duvets), with bothering sounds from the train station.
On the other hand, the personnel do their best to help the visitors and it is cheap.

Room Tip: Do not choose the rooms with view to train station.

We stayed here four nights in room 403. Room is same as picture on web site. View from the room is to the train station and it is noisy all the night. Hotel is very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very poor, same every day but we could eat on every corner of Istanbul very quality food. Hotel location is excellent, in my opinion best location in Istanbul. Galata brigde, Haya Sophia, Sultanahmet area, Grand Bazar in walking distance maximum 10min. Overall, I would

My family just returned from three nights at this hotel and had an excellent experience in every way. The staff was outstanding—friendly, courteous, very attentive to any needs and questions, and very generous with candy for my daughter. The room (201) was spacious and very comfortable, with excellent beds and showers. Everything was very clean, well-maintained, and as presented in the photographs. Numerous options were available at breakfast, and my wife and daughter especially enjoyed the bread served at the tables. The location was ideal, a quick walk to the Archaeological Institute, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc., or to either of two tram stops on the T1 line. No problems with the hotel-arranged airport shuttle despite our flight arrival at 1 a.m.! I have stayed at two other hotels in Istanbul and numerous others elsewhere in Turkey at various price points, and this hotel is clearly my favorite for the overall experience.

We stayed here two nights in room 201 and would definitely come back. The price was amazing and the room was spotless. The room is just as pictured on their website. We had a total of four people and were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful with directions of places to go and see. You can walk to many places such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, The Grand Bazaar and The Egyptian (Spice) Market. Breakfast was also included as well as free wireless. Another plus is that the tram stop is right around the corner.
