Very good location. Excellent service. The owner is extremely kind and helpful. We will be glad to visit this place again.
Staffs were very nice. Location was good.
Great location and great terrace view
There was a construction work .. I was not lucky..
The location, the view over Bosphorus, the generous space and room facilities, nicely and with good taste furbished. Plus the owner is very helpful and willing to make his guests feel more than welcomed. We wanted to change the room from the first floor with another one from the upper floors, because it was too much street noise and he was more than eager to please our wish, even by offering the best room in the hotel, no extra charge. We will recommend this to our friends and will definitely stay here again in our next visit in Istanbul. The location is 5 minutes walking distance from Galatoria tower, metro, restaurants, shops etc. so it is rather convenient for a touristic traveler.
The street noise, you have to keep the windows closed if you want any sound proof, the property is right over a busy main street in Istanbul. We also hope that in the near future the windows will become opec, because right now they are completely transparent and from the first floor people can see everything from the street in the apartment. If you are not very keen on privacy that’s ok, if not, we suggest requesting from the start the apartments from the upper floors. Other than this, everything was beautiful!
The manager was really nice to us and careful and I am sorry to be giving such an awful review, because he was at our service all of the time and we appreciate that, but to each his own.
First of all, the location is in a weird area, the entrance is hardly accessible, it is not facing the street, but rather located in a hidden place, in the right hand-side of the building. Besides, it resides in a strange neighborhood, with weird people nearby, which were probably employees of a workshop or something, but they tried to talk to us in Turkish every time and they seemed really rude. I don't want to imagine how it could have been like being a single woman at the sight. Second of all, I think it was the worst place I've been checked in to. The room was extremely dirty: the curtains, the sofa, the armchair, the carpet, the curtain on the bed, the pillows, the light blinds, the sheet, the towels, the walls, the accessories in the bathroom, the shower. We had that 'ew' reaction every time we would touch something. The balcony is extremely small and it does not have an actual floor, but a metal grill, which I think makes it pretty dangerous, especially if you are traveling with small children. Besides being very dirty (I personally don't think that the room was cleaned very recently before our stay, if they even cleaned it at all - the dust on the inside windows was super gross, I don't know if I have ever been to a more dusty place), we saw an unpleasant number of bugs in the room, bathroom, mosquitoes etc, mould near the shower. Also, they had no mosquito nets. Third of all, the rooms do not match the pictures at all. Online they make it seem like a chique boutique suite, but it's more of a dump actually. Pro points: they had two ACs for a single suite. We appreciate it, but it would have been nice to invest the money for the extra AC to clean the room up and buy new towels, sheets etc., because I am very serious when saying that someone could get a bacterial infection from that place because of the mold, dust, bacteria in the AC etc.
