This place was everything I hoped for. The location is tremendous, just downhill from Galata Tower and only 200 or 300 hundred yards from Galata Bridge. The rooms were very comfortable and impeccably clean. And the rooftop bar has the most spectacular view of the Old part of the city, including Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and Suleimaniye Mosque....

My friend and I stayed for 4 nights here and were very pleased with our choice. The rooms are fairly small but clean with decent bathrooms. Ask for one of the top floor rooms - if you're lucky you'll get a great view across the river to the Old City. You can walk across the Galata Bridge to the sights...

My brother and I stayed for five nights and were very happy we did. The hotel is on a side road in the Galata district and one would not know that a little gem of a hotel is there. We were greeted by the manager, Emrah who made us feel welcome. His English is very good and that was a...

We stayed at different hotels during our stay and this was our favourite. Clean, cozy, great view, great service, great location. You can walk over the Galata bridge to Sultanahmet/Eminonu ferrys or catch the tram that stops right by the hotel. Definitely recommend!

We stayed there for 3 nights and were completely satisfied most with everything. The first impression was spoiled by the fact that a taxi couldn't accede the entrance because of works there. But once we came inside everything was just so right: cozy clean room, great shower. We specially liked the kindness of the stuff which was very helpful and...

We stayed at this hotel in October. First impression of the hotel when we were dropped off in front of the street was 'omg .. what did we book', but don't let the outside area fool you! Although you are in the midst of electronic and plumbing stores, this small but great hotel is located at an amazing central place....

We stayed in this hotel in July. From the first moment we were disappointed, because we had read about its location being in a business and financial district, but that was not the reality. We reached the hotel, were greeted by smiling staff, the lobby was inside the dining room, very small and very depressing. We had asked for a...

We booked this hotel for 2 nights. The room and bathroom were clean, very comfortable bed. Beautiful view from the roof terrace. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
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.
