The hotel was one of my first boutique hotels and it was amazing. Nice rooms, nice area, easy to reach, you can travel the city by walk, nice staff. Thanks to Mel for the tipps and recomendations.
Thanks to Mohamed for the daily breakfast special.

We chose this hotel for our weekend trip based on Tripadvisor reviews, and they were right in all aspects. We were so pleased with this hotel! The standards were very good, the interior style and athmosphere personal and modern and staff very helpful. The location was even better than we hoped for, walking distance to both old centre and modern city life Istanbul. Close to transports when needed. Good value! We'll choose the same hotel next time, and recommened it warmly!

Stayed in this hotel for a week during our stay in Istanbul - had a fantastic experience as it was close to the city center - Suitable for young travelers who want to explore the city but also a good quality place to stay. Only recommendation is to take earplugs as it's right next to the Mosque and one gets early wakeup calls from the azan.

A small and cosy hotel with very nice and friendly staff. Its located centrally and you can reach all destinations easily. Rooms are small but the interieur has a nice a nice modern and cool touch. It would be nice to have a bar with alcohol to take a relaxing good night drink after a day full of impressions.

A very nice hotel, with a very nice staff, that welcomes you with tea, coffe and biscuits while giving some important advices of the town (restaurants, puplic transport, opening time of the mosces and palaces). There are some new stylish restaurants and bars next to the hotel; if after a (touristic) long day you want to stay near the hotel, you'll find a nice place to eat. The harbour/tramstation and galatabridge ar very near as well. Beside the traffic, it's a very good position. You can have a nice breskfast with good backgroudmusic in the hotel; its a buffet with optional fresh egg and a special of the day. The rooms are small, but stylish and clean. I'll come back for the next stay in istanbul!

This hotel is just beautiful! Very trendy and stylish, very clean and cosy.
The location is perfect, everything is close by, so easy to walk.
Food (breakfast) was excellent and a lot of choices. The staff is really friendly and helpful and can recommend you good restaurants etc.
Taxi pick up service was really good and convenient service.
Rooms very clean and stylish, with safe, TV etc.

We really enjoyed our stay in SuB Hotel and a very special thanks to the SuB hotel team for the pleasant stay. We would choose the same place for a second visit!

Led by manager Efe SuB Hotel is doing something special. They have a very modern property in a really great location. However what made the stay was the recommendations the staff was able to make for cafes, restaurants, bars and shopping in Istanbul. Istanbul is a big city and with only 4 days to explore we felt we got the most out of the city due primarily to the great opinionated advice we got from SuB Hotel. Breakfast was superb. We will highly recommend this property to anyone we know who visits.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Given the boggling variety of architectural and design styles that crowd the eye in Istanbul, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised to find the industrial-chic SuB Hotel in Karaköy (née Galata), the ancient commercial and cultural core of the city. And yet, let’s be honest: it is a bit of a surprise. SuB Hotel, quirky capitalization and all, looks more like a place you’d find in Greenpoint (Brooklyn) or Neukölnn (Berlin) than in the oldest part of one of history’s great crossroads of civilizations. ... more   less
