From the comfortable room with a wonderful balcony view of the Bosphorus, to the friendly, attentive staff, this boutique hotel is a perfect, centrally-located base near the historical Galata Tower for exploring historical Istanbul. Eat in or choose from the many restaurants and cafe in the narrow cobble-stone street nearby.

A view of the busy Istanbul waterways awaits you from the rooftop restaurant and the premium rooms. The tram stop at the Galata Bridge is a 15 minute walk and many small shops are nearby. Steep cobblestone streets are sometimes difficult to navigate. There really was no practical way to hang clothes in the room except on a pipe some...

I agree with all of the other positive reviews of the rooms, the views, the restaurant, and the service. Everything was wonderful.

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.
