Be prepared to be blown away by its modern interior design, strategic location (in between Istikal and the tram line), helpful yet not over bearing service, view (not from rooms but rooftop), and convenience ie. free wifi, cakes and coffee at check-in, and room service. It sure delivers!

Ps: it is located on a moderately steep hill so make sure your cabbie can drop you off at the door-step before jumping into the cab. Trust me, you do not want to roll your luggage up/down a narrow street after getting off the plane.

The service was excellent. My flights were a mess, but the car they arranged was there to pick me up and they were kind enough to see my to my room in the middle of the night. Over the following three days, they gave me directions, provided snacks, and booked day tours for me. I felt like I was their only guest.

I was on the ground floor and was a bit worried about street noise given that there are a lot of people in Istanbul. But, my room was quiet, comfy and cozy. And, the little alley is very charming with designer shops, convenience stores and restaurants.

I'll be back, I really just loved this place. Thanks to Marta, especially!

We spent three nights at Rooms Galata in April 2014. After almost two weeks of travel we were thrilled to stay in a room that felt like an apartment, with space and privacy. The size of our standard double room surprised us, it was nicely decorated with a lovely reading nook and small kitchenette. The building itself had common space including a full kitchen, though we didn't use it it was available to all (and often had just-baked treats on the counter for guests). The neighborhood was convenient to shopping and sites yet tucked away for quiet. Marta and Bulent were extraordinarily helpful with directions, general information, restaurant and shopping recommendations, and dinner reservations. This was a great homebase to explore Istanbul!

Everything is great! Kind & very helpful staff. Nice design, good furniture. Gorgeous view of the city from the rooftop terrace. Location is great, few meters from the Istiklyal str. We spent really great time at Istanbul. I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

We just returned from a 4-day trip to Istanbul and the foundation of our trip was the experience at Rooms Galata. We simply could not have asked for more! Marta, our host, is welcoming and graciously offered to make any arrangements or reservations we needed; she suggested places to visit, restaurants (we ate at two of them and had great meals!), and walking routes. Our room (#13) was exactly as you seen in photos; clean; and with a nice authentic feel despite the modern furnishings and lighting! We had a small balcony, which I took advantage of for photos and to check the weather. It is our practice to stay in neighborhoods when we travel to enjoy the "real" feel of a city. This location does that and more - it is close to local cafes, shops and a short walk to the very convenient Tram which takes you into the Old District. This location is very hilly - and will require effort to walk up and around, but that seemed quite manageable by the second day and in fact, I managed to walk UP the street in heels by the end of our visit :). When we return to Istanbul - and we will - we will stay at Rooms Galata.

Room Tip: Loved Room #13 for the size and balcony!
