My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this hotel for leisure during Easter. To be honest, the hotel is quite small and the location is not perfect. From the airport we have to take the airport bus to Taksim, then the funicular to Kabatas and then change the tram to Karakoy. But the hotel is just about 10-min walk...

The hotel is located in the hardware section of Istanbul with very little around it. It is not far from Galata Bridge but beyond that, it has nothing to offer. I did like the view from the restaurant and the breakfast food was decent, however the rooms were small and you were literally at the bottom of a huge hill....

The selling point with this hotel is the roof terrace. It offers amazing views of the city and I realy enjoyed having my meals there for this reason.

Staying in Karakoy

Neighbourhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
