A lovely boutique hotel in Karakoy within a walking distance from Istiklal street and Galata bridge and 2 minutes walk from Tophane tram stop from where you can ride to everywhere. The service was excellent, very friendly staff that made us feel at home. Breakfast and coffee were good (loved the freshly made sambusak (cheese rolls) every morning!), the view from the terrace and breakfast room was amazing. Rooms were quiet and clean, comfortable beds, modern bathroom,... in short words, everything was excellent! Would definitely stay again.

I stayed in this hotel in April, I had big expectations due to the excellent reviews, however the hotel let's you down. My first impression was a pleasant one, however little by little you start getting frustrated by the service of the hotel, comfort and cleanness.
I suffer from allergies and I requested in advance a special clean in my room which they promise and it was not deliver, the room was dusty. I dislike hotels where they send their linen to be washed outside, so to avoid expenses they do not wash everything on the bed such as the comforter and the mattress pad, I found this to be the case in this hotel. also I notice that when they are doing the room they place their new linen on the floor, something that I found very unsanitary. The three days that we spend in the hotel became a night mare none of us could sleep, the bed board fabric gave us all a terrible allergy reaction. Have no glue what material is but if you suffer from allergies stay away from this property.

Breakfast selection is very limited, but we enjoyed the view and the service was good.

I found this property to be over prize for what you get I think you get a better hotel less prizy.

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
