Amazing Place
The staff was really helpful and friendly. We got an upgrade to a room with view on Galata tower and it was amazing stay.

Short on amenities, very old but great location
The hotel entry was a little hard to find. The pictures are framed well but the hotel is very old. The walls were bulging out and cracked. Room was tiny but we eventually found the AC as it was stuffy. It does the job and front desk staff was nice. Best thing about the place is the location. Only a 5 min walk to Galata tower. Very cute neighborhood.

Elegant and friendly
Some of the tourist advise was a bit off the mark - in terms of transit and time, but that is to be expected in a city where the options and traffic change seasonally. The hotel itself was charming, with lovely staff, very clean, very accommodating and beautiful. It is a noisy area of town - no hotel will be quiet in this area - so this is less a review of the hotel and more a point to note. Wifi is not great, but I don't know what hotels of this standard and price do.

Great location, lovely breakfast views
The Galata antique hotel is in a great spot on the better side of Istanbul (Galata side- Karaköy and Beyoğlu). The hotel is conveniently located near Şişane metro, the tünel (underground cable car between Karaköy and Beyoğlu) as well as Istakel caddesi- there are great cafés near by, such as Mado and Noir Pit. I would thoroughly recommend wandering around the streets near Galata Antique hotel and the Galata tower as this is an quirky part of Istanbul that is at times overlooked by tourists. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and were always happy to assist me. The hotel rooms were perfect for me (single traveller) although couples may find the room a bit tight. The beds are firm, not soft, so it may take some adjusting if you sleep on a soft bed. The highlight of the Galata Antique hotel is their rooftop floor where breakfast is served, it gives you a lovely panorama around some of the lesser visited spots of Istanbul.

Amazing location!
Stayed here 2 times and did not disappoint me. If you are looking for a boutique hotel at very nice area, this is the best. You can spend 2 days by just wandering around the hotel. Only disadvantage is the noise coming from bars especially at Friday/Saturday nights. Staff is very friendly, cleaning is very good. Definitely would stay here again next time.. Good value

Situated in one of my favorite locations, which is convenient for tourism and nightlife. A small hotel with nice historic features and style, which has all one needs for a brief trip, or a base for a weekend stay. It is, however, showing signs of tiredness and needs a lick of paint and a clean of stained carpets would not go a miss. If the price is right, then these features should not dissuade a bargain seeker too much.
