N+N = Nice and noisy!!!
If you like to be around of activities, now this is the place. Located just a few meters if the Galata Bridge surrounding for restaurantes, cafés, bares and histories Places! The hotel is a traditional Turkish type and was renovated. If you are looking for a quiet place, change your mind, this is not. Breakfast good on a nice terrace.

Unhappy stay
There was a problem with the A/C unit every time I entered the room I had to contact the front desk to connect the A/C which the room tephone was not working so I had walk down stairs. Shower head was broken. Do not get the TAXI true the hotel staff. They will charge you extra. With $109 per night I could do lot better than this.

Great hotel
Great old world charm and fantastic location, right on the Bosphorus, looking at the Golden Horn. The staff were very courteous, polite, and helpful. The location was super convenient for walking to everything, from Galata Tower, or across the bridge to Hagia Sophia, the Grand Bazaar, and Topkapi Palace. The only downside to the hotel was that it had no bar and only offered breakfast. But, that wasn't an issue for us, as we went out each night to explore local restaurants.

Good location. Very noisey
Great location but comes at a price. We were in the corner Golden Horn room 102 on the first floor which does give you a view of the horn and Galata bridge however it is extremely noisy all night long. Asked for a room change to a higher floor but it was full. We ended up checking out a day early and going somewhere else just so we could get some sleep. The room itself was nice but the cleaners missed a few things. Didnt replace used coffee cups and glasses etc.

Amazing stay in this little friendly hotel The staff were super helpful, the room was beautiful and the beds were super super comfortable. Room service was perfect Would definitely stay here again. Do not miss the restaurants around :Namli in Karaköy has the best Turkish breakfast, lunch and dinner and kosgeroglu has the best baklava and a restaurant with the same name. Galatali tower is a short walk
Shiva, us8 night family trip
Good 6,0
OVER RATED (by themseves of course)
The pace needs a restaurant, either that or at least someone at the front desk that knows something about the facilities and restaurants nearby … Disappointingly, the staff had NO IDEA … And that felt like a let down !

It's good but this time is bad service
