Score from 111 reviews Very good
The location was excellent and in walking distance to major attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful with all our questions but...
We were told of daily construction on arrival, no chance to make other arrangemns. The noise throughout the day would not let our children sleep.
We had a super stay at the Galata Istanbul Hotel. The hotel is ideally situated - close the many sights, which are in walking distance or you can reach the tram station easily from the hotel to get to wherever you need to. The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and just generally a pleasure! Great buffet breakfast served as well. Plenty restaurants in walking distance. We recommend the hotel and a great stay! Thank you Galata Istanbul Hotel!!
Stuff extreamly kind and helpfull. Strategic position: near to the turist attractions, but in a quiet street
Rooms are a bit noisy: the elevator is a bit loud and can disturb you during the night. The hall is small and a little somber
Good location, you can walk to main attractions
The room was of a poor standard and very small. The bathroom was also small with below standard bathroom fittings. The shower door was broken. The balcony which I paid extra for was a fire exit with at least 4 split AC units located on it.
excellent location near Topkapi 2 bathroom in the apartment (2 rooms) clean room
old furniture, dark room (one room in the apartment without window and A/C) poor Wi-Fi
The hotel was located in a central area but next to a building site which was noisy. The room was ok with a small balcony and a safe but nothing special for the price and a bit dingy.
Cramped and the AC was turned off.
The location was excellent close to main objectives, the personnel very kind
Doors are not well insulated and if you are on the first floor (room for family) you can hear every little noise from the kitchen, every. The breakfast was ok but the same all the days, coffee seems to not be available due to machine failure, WIFI not working everywhere in the room, only close to the door.
Excellent location for Sultanahmet sites and restaurants and near tramline. Very friendly and helpful staff who gave good advice. Comfortable, clean room and good breakfast.
the room was different from the pictures. the window in the room was about 10cm large only !!
The staff are very nice people, Location is very good and the breakfast was very good also
Galata Istanbul is a very small hotel -as many hotels in Istanhul are - but it was convenient for us...the size of the triple room was convenient and the room had a sofa, someone came daily to provide free tea and coffee bags, the street is quiet and nice (except for some construction work which I think is occasional and which starts at around 10 am and finishes by dark)...Sirkeci is a very nice place close to Eminonu and the hotel is a walking distance from Marmaray, the Kabataş tram, Gulhane park and Sultanahmet. The personnel were super sweet and they provided us with umbrellas when it was raining.
Some personnel made me feel they were policing the breakfast by looking into your plate all the time...not very nice in my culture!
Great location and nice staff. The rooms are tiny but thats ok giving the price. Our room only had a tiny window looking over a building site- see comment below.
There is a massive building site next door (literally- they demolished the house next door and are building something new now). Not the hotels fault, but worth knowing. We stayed for 4 days over the weekend and the noise was minimal as nobody was on side during that time. While the rooms were clean, the shower was full off mould, which unpleasent.
The staff attentiveness was superb. Allie, Muhammed and Abdul Kader...you are to be commended and your employers are lucky to have you. Breakfast was good with an appreciated variety on offer
breakfast area a bit cramped, but luckily one spends a maximum of 30 minutes there and the keen attention of the staff made up for it
The staff and the locations are big big plus for this hotel. Our room was with a beautiful view of the sea!
The aircondition didnt work in our room. It made loud beep before it went off multiple times. The staff offered to come and have a look but it was our last night of stay and it didnt bother us that much so we chose to sleep with window open (late May's night, lovely weather still)
Fantastic location close to all the main tourist sights. The hotel has a lift....decent breakfast ... our room had a partial view of the Bosphorus and Galata Tower. The best thing about the hotel was the staff, especially Ibrahim and the manager Mr.Rebi, who were extremely helpful. My husband forgot his camera bag at the hotel and Ibrahim actually took a taxi and brought it to us at the airport.....exceptional service !!! Would definitely stay at this hotel again
The room size is the best comparing the hotel to other hotels in Sulan Ahmed
Very good location, near historical places of Istanbul. Close to tram station. Clean rooms, nice breakfast, and excellent staff, especially Ali who really made our stay the best possible.
zero positive, sorry
Very disappointed with facilities. Air con. was not working. NO iron in the whole hotel! was forced to pay to other hotel to iron our clothes. Very dark room. TV was not working. Weak internet signal. Stuck of water in bathroom. Unprofessional stuff driven by kinda family and it's not a hotel, but just a flats. Zero facilities, don't consider that place as a proper hotel. You can get a better hotel room next door for almost the same value of money.
very friendly and helpful staff, breakfast was good (fresh coffee), perfect location (all landmarks in the old town are in walking distance)
very thin walls, noise level during night times;
The transportation to and from the airport by the hotel is very reliable and fair price. It's convenient and a good deal even when your group is bigger than a taxi can hold.
The size of the room as indicated (in sq.m.) in the booking website is not accurate.
pictures of rooms look better than reality
This is a great budget hotel, in an excellent location with staff that couldn't be more helpful. We stayed on the top floor, and our room was extremely spacious, even had a balcony.
perfect location, directly in Sultanachmet, thanks for the nice tipps, hope to join again
wlan sometimes too slow, water with less pressure when u have room >5th floor
Extremely convenient location near transportation hubs (tram, metro and ferries) and walking distance (5-10 minutes) to main tourist attractions in Sultanahmet. Very attentive and polite personnel and good value for money. Clean and spacious rooms.
Only drawback was inadequate insulation. Conversations held on ground floor (front desk and breakfast room) could be heard on our first floor room. At night.
