Reviewed 5 August 2007

This hotel is a real gem. Located just a ten minute walk from Taksim and Istiklal street -- Istanbul's fashionable and frenetic shopping street -- it combines refined comfort with reasonable prices and a friendly staff. I have stayed here more than ten times and have never been disappointed. The highlight is the rooftop terrace which has a 360 degree view of the Istanbul skyline, including the Golden Horn. You will find a mix of tourists and local glitterati hanging out there. Be sure to wake up in time for breakfast.

We spent 5 days at the Anemon Galata and overall we enjoyed our stay there. This boutique hotel has been sympathetically restored in the Italian Art Nouveau style( I think),located next to the Galata Tower and across the Bosphorous from the more touristy Sultanhamet district. Some of the out lying area surrounding the hotel is scuzzy but not dangerous. As a cook I particularily liked this district of Instanbul as the restaurants are superior to those in Sultanhamet.The Sultanhamet area is easily and cheaply reached by cab or as we preferred to walk across the Galata Bridge. We found the hotel service staff to be efficient and professional. Breakfast which is included was good with a selection of Turkish and Continental fare.Housekeeping throughout the hotel was good and for the most time our room was made up in good time ,only late once. The best feature of the Galata Hotel is the roof top restaurant' s magnificent view of Istanbul with its many mosques ,considered to be the best view in Istanbul. Generally a good value elegant little hotel with very nicely appointed furniture,marble and ceilings which attracts Turkish and European business guests. The only complaint of any note was a noise issue, our room was located on the floor just below the roof top restaurant / bar and we would be awakened by the shuffling of furniture etc. at 2 am and at 7 am.

The hotel is in a nice and very convenient location and the restaurant has a wonderful view. The rooms are not big but very nice decorated and not kitch. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. 100 euros a night was the price for double room breakfast and taxes included. Very happy for our choice.

I stayed in this hotel after a not so happy experience in Sultanhamet. I found that this hotel provides better value than most hotels I saw in Sultanhamet. Rooms are very nicely appointed, they have all amenities including slippers and bathrobe, and the breakfast terrace has probably teh best view in Istanbul. Nevertheless, I have mixed feelings about the area. It is central and you can go very easily to Sultanhamet with the tram. It has the advantage of keeping you away from carpets sellers and tourist touts, and it is close to good dining options . However, the area is really shabby - probably not so dangerous, but dirty and rather depressing. If you can put up with that, this is a good option. Just pay attention to the minibar, very expensive, and to the astronomical bill for telephone calls (8 YTL for a call of two minutes to a Turkish mobile phone!).

I recently spent two nights at the Anemon Galata Hotel in Istanbul. The hotel and the surrounding area of Istanbul were most enjoyable. The hotel has been recently remodeled and looks and feels Parisian. The rooms are moderately sized and comfortable. Because the hotel is on a hill at the base of the Galata Tower, the views are excellent (out over the new city or looking at Sultanachment). The staff was generally helpful and made any arrangements requested. Breakfasts were adequate with great views from the glassed in dining room on the top floor. In all, this is a good choice for a moderately priced, comfortable hotel in the Galata area. It's also worth mentioning that Galata is a good place to stay in the newer portion of Istanbul: it's filled with small shops and relatively close (a nice walk up the pedestrian streets or a tram ride) to the busier areas around Taksim Square.
