We booked a double bedroom on booking.com just the day before our arrival, as we did for every destination of our journey through Turkey. After 14 hours of bus trip from Goreme to Istanbul, we were just more than happy to enter in our room and take shower. Get off the tram at Karakoy stop, we walked to the hotel and actually it was quite easy to find it. Entered in the reception it was clear that something was going wrong, it seemed like they didn't expect us at all. And indeed the hotel was full and they suggested us to move to another hotel, for the same price, in Sultanahmet area. I don't wanna talk about this other hotel now (room ridiculously small, hairs in the shower...), but, reading on some blogs after that, I discovered that also other travellers had the same experience in the Galata Pasha Hotel.

Only good for single backpackers. If you are someone not sensitive to cleanliness and noise, you might consider this place. The windows are not soundproof and it feels like you are sleeping on the pedestrian side on the street.

Echoing from the previous review, we checked in last night at 9:30 PM. Yet the manager requested full payment upon check in in Euro in CASH! We also booked the hotel through booking.com which showed that this hotel accepts card payment. I had some other currencies and could not exchange to euro nor turksig lira as it was late at night! The manager there showed us the card machine and said it was only accepting local credit cards! How rediculous this was! We had no choice but found another hotel instead. Once again, of course, the booking.com charged for one night stay as no show. The hotel is located at a very bad and unsafe neighbourhood. For the same rates, tourists can find nice rooms near Taksim in Beyoglu area.

I had a booking for this hotel through booking.com and was shocked to find out that this hotel practises the usual tourist scam of 'overbooking' the hotel. Upon arrival I was told that the hotel was full and the room that I had booked was unavailable. Instead, I was offered a room at another hotel, which was below any standard. The hotel was a building site with dirty floors and did not have all the facilities that Galata Pasha has. I was not happy with the way the hotel dealt with this - and when coming back, I discovered that the hotel had registered me as a 'no show' with booking.com and I had been charged for my stay! So, now I am disputing this charge with booking.com.

Please avoid this hotel at any cost. It is not difficult to find other hotels in the same price range in Istanbul, especially in the Sirkeci area, which is just across the bridge.
