“Get amongst it..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Loved this hotel. Away from the touristy area of Sultanhamet but so easy to get there on the tram only 5 mins away.
The area is amongst heaps of restaurants, bars and shopping. Lots of locals frequent this area and you feel like you are really seeing how they live day to day.
For older travellers beware the location is on a really steep hill but certainly manageable. The rooms are fantastic, modern and roomy.
Staff were helpful and friendly. Defiantly recommend this accomodation.. Thank you Rooms Galata it was a great experience. :-)

Spacious rooms with generous seating areas decorated with exemplary taste. I stayed in 2 different rooms here, the first with a balcony onto the indoor courtyard was better if you want absolute quiet. Very close if a bit of a climb to the main shops and restaurants. Most important is mine host Emir John (sp??) who goes way, way beyond the call of duty. I can truly say that not one boutique hotel in the world where I have stayed has been anywhere close in sussing you out and sending you places you want to go. In our case, driving direcitons in the maze that is istanbul, finding parking, finding good restaurants, finding takeaways that were edible in the middle of the night, finding good art, findng a highly esoteric book on islamic gardens. I could go on forever.

All the rooms are on the street side. Sometimes you can hear some street noise. They do not serve breakfast, only coffee and some bread.
Overall it was a great experience. The rooms are beautiful and nicely decorated. Very helpful staff. I recommend it.

Lovely domestic feel for an independent traveler who wants a genuine Istanbul experience. Very helpful staff and great central location.

Rooms are very tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

Strongly recommend it, especially having stayed in other more expensive or similarly priced Istanbul hotels that were nowhere near as nice.

Stylish and spacious rooms in a unique town house. Small roof top terrace with great views. Also common lounge area with coffee and tea. Bedrooms contain small kitchenette and are stylishly designed. Bathroom small but functional. Located down a steep hill so be aware if you have mobility issues. Owners helpful but not intrusive.

This is a beautiful first floor flat, situated in an old Istanbul building 5 minutes walk from Galata tower. The area is the most interesting to be in in Istanbul within walking distance of so many exciting things to see and do.
Ahmed is available by phone all the time and works at the hotel 2 doors away so is often on hand. He is funny and charming and was so helpful whenever we needed advice or answers to questions or recommendations. We had a wonderful time.

If you are looking for a "different" place to stay and chain hotels don't mean much to you (regardless of the stars) then you got yourself a beautiful choice! Located conveniently in a small street minutes of the Istiklal avenue, previously being a Greek family furniture factory, this place mixes modern hotel features with a family atmosphere and a genuine welcome smile from the owner. You will feel like you live in your own Istanbul studio! Everything is around- one thing though: if you cannot for physical reasons climb a steep road for 3-5 min, try somewhere else!!!
And do not forget to enjoy a drink at the almost-next door Leb-i-derya bar restaurants and allow yourself to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Bosphorus.
