A very comfortable location in the heart of Istanbul. Besides, nice quiet place, no city noise at all. Very clean rooms, high-speed wi-fi (!), tasteful breakfasts and very friendly fluent English speaking staff! The great advantage is a tram stop near hotel.

We stayed in this hotel at the end of a visit to Istanbul for meetings. We had a very warm welcome and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful throughout our short stay. As others have said, the hotel is in an excellent location. There is a two minute walk down the street to the tram stop at Tophane with frequent, modern trams to the main tourist sites. There is a short walk to Taksim Square and the night life around the Galata Tower.

Breakfast on the 6th floor is a delight, with a panoramic view across the Bosphorus (except when blocked by a visiting cruise liner) and a good selection of choices. It is also fun to sit there at night and watch the boats moving. There is access to an outdoor space on the 7th floor which would be pleasant during the hotter weather.

The rooms are not large - especially when, like ours, it holds 2 double beds! However they are well fitted, with a good shower, plenty of toiletries and a firm, comfortable bed. The rooms were really quiet, which is surprising given the city centre location.

We took the tram to the airport for our departure, transferring at Zeytinburnu to the metro. Using the Istanbul card, this costs little more than £2.00 (GBP) per person and took around one hour! This was very easy, although at rush hour it would be difficult with heavy luggage.

We had an enjoyable stay at this new hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had no complaints. Definitely recommended.

Only spent one night in the Karakoy Port Hotel but I was charmed by that place.
The staff is kind and gentle , the hotel is brand new and the decoration is beautiful. I was in one of the sixth floor room and I had a very quiet night . From the dining room the view on the Bosphorus is excellent , and for the most intrepid it is possible to go on the roof (amazing to take some pictures).
The hotel is located close some monuments and museum (only 10 to 15 minutes by walking to join the spice market).
I know where to stay the next time I go to Istanbul

The location is very good - tram from Tophane into the centre gives access to the great places. But also the ferries crossing the Bosporus from close to Galata Bridge just opens up other possibilities on the Asian side
Hotel is also next to Istanbul Modern museum and also to the ocean liner docks - so there is always something to see! (see the picture from the breakfast room)
The Hotel is clean , comfortable and small enough to feel very 'family'
The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly - from the welcome cup of tea, to the advice. Well worth getting the taxi they can arrange from the airport.
This is in an area which looks as if it is on the up - a large modern hotel is being built along the road. But we would go back to Karakoy anytime.

Room Tip: The higher you go the better the view over Bosporus - and nearer the breakfast room on the top floor...

We found this hotel very cosy and comfortable. The staff was wonderful - really friendly and welcoming and always willing to help. We slept well in our prettily decorated interior room. Nights were peaceful and breakfast a delight with a beautiful top floor view over the Bosphorus. Tophane tram stop just around the corner made moving around easy although we enjoyed walking to many places including Karakoy harbour, Galata Bridge and Dolmabahce Palace. This hotel was perfect for our week in Estambul.
