I stayed almost 3 weeks in this lovely place. The best points for me are the closeness to both Nisantasi (high class shopping area) and Taksim (gbest place for night life and sightseeing). If you like walking in green, the Macka park is so close too. The comfort of the rooms are as good as the breakfast with panaromic view. The only difficulty is parking if you have a car..

Our parking problem has been solved since this guest’s stay. In November 2008, a 24-hour parking garage was opened in our street, only 20 metres from Gallery Residence. Kind Regards. Gallery Residence Management

I spent 7 nights at the Gallery Residence while attending a conference at the Lufti Kadir Conference Center. This hotel was absolutely perfect for my needs. My room was very clean and quiet, and had every convenience that is important to me, including an in-room safe, free wireless internet (that worked very well), breakfast included, iron and ironing board, and kitchenette that was well stocked with small appliances and utensils. The location was wonderful, with a less than a 10 minute walk to the conference center, and 15 minutes to Taxim Square. The staff were very helful, courteous and responsive. I was originally placed on a smoking floor, but asked to be moved to a nonsmoking room when it became available. Not only did they do that, they sent a person to help me move. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in the Nisantasi area of Istanbul.

The 3 days I spent in Istanbul were a dream come true that began before arriving in the city with the Gallery Residence. After confirming my reservation, further information was emailed informing me of the many services of the hotel. The fluent English speaking concierge was most helpful in suggesting itineraries and making reservations. Tourist maps and information were readily available in my room and in the lobby. Being in a safe and quiet neighborhood, it is an excellent location for the tourist; major attractions close by as is the metro.
The hotel staff could not do enough for us. Nothing seemed to be impossible for them. The hotel room was very comfortable and equipped with all modern conveniences and the highest standards of cleanliness were in practice througout my suite and the hotel. My next visit to Istanbul, I will return to my "home away from home", the Gallery Residence.

  • Liked — It's cleanliness and it felt like be at home but better!
  • Disliked — that I had to leave

We had just gotten off a 12-day cruise from Croatia, Greece, and Turkey. The hotel is magnificent with large spacious rooms and modern bathrooms. The shower may be the best amenity. Additionally, there is a very nicely equiped workout room in the basement of the building. Besides the gym equipment, there are two bath tubs and sauna to relax from a day of walking around the city. Breakfast (included) is served on the top floor of the hotel looking out across the city. The view is wonderful. The hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. We wish all hotels were this nice with such incredible service.

I stayed one night in the Gallery residence. It is not a four star hotel at all. It is a Boutique category hotel. The reception is very small and the hotel neighborhood is not that good. They say it is 10 min walk from taksim street but it takes me about 20 min. The rooms are great. They are well equipped as an apartment. Freg and small kitchen and all small nice touches.

Nisantasi (the neighborhood we are located in) is Istanbul’s most popular district and we are located only 50 meters from Valikonagi Avenue – one of the main avenues in Nisantasi. Walking to Taxim can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 20 minutes, depending on the pace of a guest’s walk. Some reservation systems do not offer a “boutique” category, but only “star” ratings. Since our rooms offer four-star features, we are forced to enter ourselves in that category. Kind Regards. Gallery Residence Management

. I’m staying on regularly basis at the Gallery Residence in Istanbul. I highly recommend the accommodation, especially because of the nice people who do there work very good and with a kindliness. The rooms are well-kept and very clean. The location is also very good.

If you look for a small and a middle standard place, than I would definitely recommend this place.

We were 6 people in 3 separate fabulous rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You are in the middle of Nisantasi, one of the best places in Istanbul, and close to every important place. You should stay away from Tourist only areas. Definitely recommended A++++++
