We stayed in this boutique hotel for 3 nights on our first trip to Istanbul. On arrival the staff sat us down and gave us a great intro into the neighbourhood, and took us through a map to help with our orientation around town - public transport, restaurants etc.. Rooms were modern, all wood and polished concrete, beds very comfortable. Breakfast was pretty special too, on top of a regular buffet we were offered Menemen (a delicious spicy turkish omelette) and different home made desserts every morning. Staff was also helpful booking restaurants for lunch and dinner.. Location is great as well, near the younger, trendy part of town, lots of little cafés and boutiques hidden in the side alleys nearby. Transport is also easy, the Tophane tram station is less than 2 mins down the road - that will connect you to the old town and all the famous sights in 15 minutes.. Overall a great experience; not the cheapest option but definitely worth it!

I really enjoyed my stay at this Hotel. It is very convenient to the Metro T1 line. About a 3 minute walk from the Tophane station. The staff was great, very helpful about things to do and booking sight seeing and restaurants. The breakfast in the morning was a great way to start the day. The rooms are neat and clean.

Truly enjoyed this hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff; clean, quiet, secure. Despite the busy street, the location was very convenient to everything we wanted to do and see. Regardless of the direction you're headed, it's a nice walk and/or tram ride. Nice breakfast every morning, small terrace on the side. About two blocks away, toward the water/cruise ship dock, is a very sweet corner of cafes, small shops - this is a gem in a once-gritty but up-and-coming area.

Room Tip: Probably don't want to be on the street side...

The rooms are clean, beds very comfortable, and decor colorful, hip and modern. The breakfasts were terrific, with a large spread. The staff were all helpful, had great suggestions, and were fun to talk to (we explored downtown with them one evening, which was great!). Karakoy is a fantastic place to be - close to the historic part of town, but near to Galata Tower and all the boutiques, restaurants, and bars. The hotel is a convenient two minute walk from the tram.

Small hotel, we arrive really late from the airport, the night receptionist was really helpful with us and make a fast check-in! The lobby was really nice decorated with beautiful picture. The room was the same, good taste nice concrete wall with metal bed and the all bathroom part was as well in metal! The breakfast was amazing, the service shiny but with a real good attention. The receptionists were a bit cold at the start but really nice after the first day and make a really good job!
The hotel has a good location, close to the tram (2mn) and close to animate part of Istanbul.
I want go there back!!!! Thanks guy good job!

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
