“Central, large, beautiful”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

We are a family of seven and we felt just at home in Galata Flats. It fit us all quite nicely. The location is great, just a short walk to central Istanbul. There is a full service kitchen that we used to cook eggs for breakfast. The washing machine is great too.

We stayed for five nights with our three kids and found this to be the best of our accommodations while in Istanbul. We had the one bedroom apartment that had a pull out couch and chair in the living room for our kids. The apartments are exactly as pictured. Comfortable and clean. It was a great place for us to spread out, make some snacks or breakfast and do some of the kids' laundry. It was close to Istiklal Cadessi and a few steps from the metro station( easy for taxi directions). I would stay here again and definitely recommend it to my friends who need more space. The best things about this apartment rental is that they have 24 hour reception staff and daily cleaning. Best of a hotel and apartment in one. While there isn't room service or a gym- the Thai restaurant down the street delivered and we got plenty of excercise walking around the area!

Traveling with an eight month old baby has its challenges and forces you to really consider your choice of hotel. In the end, we couldn't be happier that we didn't choose a hotel and rather went with a serviced apartment with a fully functional kitchen and the luxury of housekeeping.

Galata Flats was ideally located for us. Yes it's not in the (so touristy) Sultahnamet area but Galata is such a great area if you want to walk about and discover other sides to Istanbul. We loved the tiny streets leading off the bustling Istiklal Cadessi, which is a two minute walk away. Also, some great restaurants and bars nearby. We went to Mikla twice (very friendly staff who don't bother you even if you just turn up to watch the sunset!) and had amazing Thai food at nearby Pera Thai. Miss Pizza and Simit Sarayi were also great.

A special mention to one of the partners who runs Galata (I'm so sorry I've forgotten your name). He went out of the way to help us when my husband fell ill on the second day of our trip. A word of caution when in Istanbul - it's one of the driest cities weather wise and dehydration is unfortunately very common especially among tourists who spend a lot of the time out in the sun.

Thanks again to Galata Flats for being our home away from home for six fab days in Istanbul!

The reception employee's are more than welcoming and polite. Especially the (Lady) manager. I booked the penthouse apartment with three bedrooms. Everything i found posted in booking.com about this place was exactly the same or the apartment was even better. Fast internet, wounderfull decoration design, perfect location. The price was a little high for an apartment but still worth it. Overall, i found it hard to leave the apartment. I highly recomend it.

These amazing apartments in Galata, the area is very nice, very close to the shops and bars, you got the underground half a block, and the apartments are nice and spacious, very clean, with dishwasher, washing machine and all we need a apartment. Really highly recommended!

Our sextet had a wonderful experience at Galata Flats. We loved the location, near streets that ascended to alleys and steps. From the penthouse balcony, we had views of the Galata Tower and the Golden Horn. Our three-bedroom/two-bath apartment was spacious and included an washer/dryer, sofa bed in the living room and a cot. All staff were attentive. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Room Tip: All I can say is that the penthouse is an excellent choice.

Our family has rented high end apartments and villas in Spain, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Austria and the Canary Islands and none have exceed our expectations as much as did the Galata Flats. They were not only as represented on their website but were MUCH better. The owner was very involved to make certain his guests were well served and the young staff were as friendly and helpful as they could be.

The location is superb and the Istanbul tram system is really very easy to navigate. We stayed five night and every day it was breeze to get to the major sites across the bridge.

We had a street side 2 bedroom apartment and we weren't even aware any street noises.

Room Tip: In as much as the rooms are so well insulated I would recommend a street side room so you can see th...
