Galata Flats
Ranked #108 of 1,070 Istanbul B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 September 2013

So I have labeled this trip as business because we stayed there for a week while my husband was doing business, but I got to be the tourist! The location was just steps from a Metro station and also from the great street of Istilkal as well as a quick walk to the Galata Tower and down the hill by funnicular or walking and across the Galta Bridge and right into the spice market, old mosque and new mosque as well you can walk to Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque right from there! The 1 bedroom flat we stayed in was spacious and well stocked with kitchen equipment and dishes. The staff was very friendly and can direct you almost anywhere and they speak English, which is a bonus for those of us who don't speak Turkish. The room was cleaned daily if we wanted, and the washer/dryer for clothes was a life saver! Excellent place!!!

Room Tip: The rooms are all quiet because the property is actually just far enough off the busy streets!

This self catered , full kitchen , Hotel with daily room service , met and passed our expectations. The location , 50 meters from the metro, and just steps to a selection of ethnic restaurants was second to none. The suites are modern, clean , huge and designed professionally by the architect owner. The entrance is manned 24 hours so even our 0400 arrival was no problem. Galata is now a trendy , hip , and vibrant area of Istanbul far different than a few years ago. The property is a perfect fit into this popular neighborhood. WIFI is free and fast, there are ample power plugs to recharge your electronics and adapters are available. Complimentary coffee, tea, and drinking water were supplied daily. This will be our home , whenever we are in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask about the two bedroom with the terrace, or the penthouse.

We stayed for 1 week at Easter in the appartment and we loved everything about it. It is very well furnished, spacious and clean. It is perfectly located in a quiet street in Beyoglu with wonderful bars, restaurants and shops (Istiklal boulevard) just a few streets away. We used the kitchen only for breakfast since the choice of cheap and good restaurants nearby was so big. Public transport is right in front of the door (metro) and the funicular down to the harbour and the bridge to the old town is only a 200m walk. From the window we could see Galata Tower which is a 10 min walk.
The reception desk is very helpful and available around the clock. The free water bottle every morning was much appreciated.

My wife and I, together with our young children (ages 6 and 9) stayed in a 1br apartment and loved escaping here after busy days on the hectic streets and sights of Istanbul. Galata Flats has very peaceful and spacious rooms despite its central location near Istiklal St and The Tunnel, with excellent markets / delis / cafes / restaurants right out the front door. The apartment had a functional kitchen and laundry which was were very useful to our family, and the entire unit (including bathroom) was spotless at arrival and after daily cleaning. Handy extras provided - drinking water, Nescafe / tea, WiFi, in-room safe. The owner and front desk were extremely helpful with maps, sightseeing directions, dinner reservations, and airport transfers. I've stayed in may hotels globally and this ranks near the top in total satisfaction.

We were four families and booked four units here and are so happy we stayed in this neighborhood and at Galata Flats.

The bathrooms and kitchens are modern and spotlessly cleaned. We loved having a washer and dryer in the unit. We had the two-bedroom with a terrace and hired a chef to come in one night and we loved our terrace dining and views.

The neighborhood is so vibrant, lively and interesting. We loved just exploring the shops and restaurants. We were so glad to be in this more vibrant, less-touristy side of the city to enjoy the better restaurants and more interesting shops.

The staff was generally pretty helpful - especially the main owner/ manager - he had some good food recommendations for us.

I would definitely recommend staying at Galata Flats.

Great place to stay in Istanbul. We have two teenage boys and had a 1-bedroom apartment. They brought in an extra chair that opened into a bed so the kids didn’t have to share the couch bed. It was large enough to share, but the kids prefer separate beds. All beds were comfortable, washer/dryer, 5-gallon water supplied daily, good daily cleaning service, air conditioning, someone was always at the front desk, and in-room safe. Small grocery store down the street.

This is my preferred area to stay – more locals and more restaurant choices than Sultanahmet. Close to Istiklal Caddesi , can walk to Taksim Square but it was far enough away that you could easily avoid this area. If you have several people, it is probably easiest/cheapest to take a taxi than to ride the metro to Sultanahmet. No one is trying to sell you stuff in this area, unlike the old city where kids were begging and someone was always trying to sell you a cruise. We typically took a taxi to the tourist area, and then walked home over the Galata Bridge and took the Tunel funicular up the hill.
