This tucked away boutique hotel is across from the Port, walking distance to the Spice Market, 1 block to the tramway, and just a wonderful place to start or end a cruise. The staff is superb, friendly and filled with knowledge of where to go and how to get there! The breakfast on the top floor is excellent and included in the rate, and the roof garden has spectacular views of the city and the Bosphorus. I highly recommend this hotel and would return when I return. If you stay for 3 nights, the transfer to the airport is free!!!

Room Tip: Since it is a small hotel...they will give you the best available...but all are very nice.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Karakoy Port Hotel in Istanbul and the service at the hotel was outstanding. We were made very welcome from the beginning and the staff helped us with directions and tours. They even walked us to the cruise pier on the day we left. Our stay was great and we enjoyed being there as much due to their friendly approach as to the hotel itself. The breakfast room had a great view over the port and was good as well. We would go back there if we visited Istanbul again.

We, a family of four, stayed at Karakoy Port Hotel for four nights last week and were very happy with the hotel and the staff.
The hotel is in a great location! While it is on Bosphorus river with a beautiful view of Bosphorus bridge, it's about 5 minutes by metro away from Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, river cruises and other tourist attractions.
The staff is extremely nice, welcoming and helpful. One of the staff, Burak, welcomed us with the famous Turkish coffee in a beautiful Turkish coffee set which we found very touching.
The hotel arranged a private pick-up from the airport for us which we appreciated very much being in Istanbul for the first time. The breakfast is very good with a big variety as well.
A big thank you to Hakon, Bora, Burak, Sevgi and the hotel manager, Umit for going out of their ways many times to make our stay more pleasant at their hotel.

Since we had a long gap between disembarking from celebrity cruise at Istanbul and our flight out of Istanbul, I was looking for a hotel close to the cruise terminal. I booked at Karakoy Port hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and was very happy with the hotel and staff.

The hotel is very close to the terminal (you can walk there if you are light on luggage). The room was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The tram station is very close by and it was very easy to get to all the top tourist spots easily from the hotel.

All the staff at the hotel were super friendly and helpful. Sevgi (@frontoffice) gave us a lot of useful info about good restaurants and good nearby places to get good turkish delight and pastries. The wait staff at the hotel were very prompt in attending to all our requests as well.

Overall, we felt very good about our stay at the hotel.

We booked an overnight stay at the Karakoy Port hotel prior to boarding a Black Sea Cruise on the basis of previous reviews and the hotels close proximity to the cruise port. We were not disappointed, this gem of a hotel tucked in between the cruise terminal and the Tophane tram stop is perfect for pre/post cruise stays and exploring Istanbul.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed, with comfortable beds and good showers. We had a partial sea view room with views out over the port. The best views are from the breakfast room and outdoor terrace on the top floor from which you can enjoy a 360 degree panorama of Istanbul and the Bosphorus.....don't miss the light show on the Bosphorus bridge at night!
The hotel staff are amazing, very welcoming and keen to ensure your needs are met. On arrival, after a long taxi ride from the airport they settled us in our room and booked another taxi to take us to a restaurant (Gile - you must try that too if you enjoy innovative dining with Local Turkish ingredients) which we had booked from the UK. The Taxi arrived and we jumped in, heading towards the restaurant. When we arrived at the restaurant, which wasn't too far away, the taxi meter (which we hadn't checked on getting in) read 40TL, almost as much as our journey from the airport. It clearly wasn't right, but the driver insisted and we were already late for dinner, so paid and felt ripped off. We put it behind us and had a great dinner at Gile followed by a return taxi ride to the hotel which cost 12TL. I figured that the previous taxi had left the meter running from his last fare and we hadn't noticed. We mentioned this to the duty manager at the hotel and he said he would call the taxi company as they always used the same one. Later that night he called to say the taxi manager would be coming to see him, apparently the driver was saying we had only paid 15 TL! To cut a long story short, the hotel refunded us with 25TL, the amount we had been overcharged! This was so unexpected and the icing on the cake in terms of how the Karakoy team ensure their guests are looked after.
When we returned from the cruise, although we were leaving the same day, the hotel stored our bags for a few hrs while we took the tram to the grand bazaar for a final morning sightseeing and shopping before returning to the hotel and taking a taxi to the airport.
Don't hesitate to stay here, you won't be disappointed.
