These serviced apartments are well located and are nicely decorated. One of the apartments has spectacular views too. Easy to find cabs nearby and only 50m up the hill you'll find a metro station. You also have a host of restaurants and bars all within walking distance.

3 Americans women taking our first trip to Istanbul couldn't have been luckier with our accommodations as the Galateia Residence Apartments. I was a bit leery that this is not a true hotel, but in most every sense of the word, it does operate that way. There is a person at the front who will greet you and help you...

As living on what is now serviced apartment, great location staff friendly, but if stay longer than week bring on toiletries as per contract suppose to replace soaps and shampoo but it is not the case, asked for it no willing or response to have this sorted.

Great hotel and excellent staff. Taxi needed to get to the city centre. Rooms were a good size and the bathroom was of a very high quality. Room service was efficient and prompt. Breakfast was a buffet and there was substantial food available. There was an X ray machine to check luggage entering the hotel.

Great place to stay. Definitely recommend it!!! The apartment is really big, spacious and clean. It has a subway station half block away. There is also a big street one block away where you can walk, nice stores and restaurants. Mini markets where you can buy things to eat. Wifi works perfectly.

This stay was way more than I ever hoped for. I didn't expect much from this low key establishment, but wow did they ever prove me wrong. From the care and attention of the staff, to the lovely views from the room or apartment, all was just fantastic. We stayed in the top floor apartment (if you can afford it,...

Staying here is like having a beautifully furnished, large apartment within steps of Istiklal Caddesi.

Stayed for 4 nights and could have stayed for another 4 quite easily. Apartment was cleaned daily while we were out site seeing and breakfast was brought up to our room at whatever time we requested. Would stay again for sure!

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
