Unfortunately, you were not in Istanbul but it worked My bathroom was clean and expedient The large terrace was super great and I spent a pleasant hour with marvelous views of the Galataturm.Es friend Was a Quiet cozy neighborhood and real Türkisch.Zum everything.

My friend Martin and I stayed in the apartment for about 12 nights during summertime. Our room was nice and clean, with enough room to put our clothes in a closet. The view from our window was great, we looked across the bosporus. Kitchen and bathroom are shared, the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner but it was still fine. In the kitchen there was some stuff missing, like pots and dishes, which made it a bit difficult to cook, but besides of this it had all we needed. The apartment is in one of the oldest buildings in Istanbul, don't be scared, it gives a very special touch to your stay :) Across our building on top of the other house there was the wonderful rooftop terrace on which you can get homemade breakfast under a big umbrella with a phantastic view across Istanbul city and the bosporus. You are also allowed to use it for having barbecues, etc. Walking distance to the downtown areas is about 15 minutes, so the apartment was a great starting point to discover the city or to head down to the ferry boats. Our hosts Anouk and Tamuna have been very nice and welcoming. It's not the best place to stay if you expect super clean and white facilities, but if you're an open minded explorer looking for a nice and special ambiente in the heart of the town, this is the place to be!!!
I would definatley recommend it!
Thx to the whole crew!
The Galata Guesthouse is strategically located near Galata Tower, so 5-minutes away from the old city, Sultanahmet, and the nightlife in Istiklal Caddesi. Don't be scared from the appearance of the building because the apartments and the rooms are wonderful! We really enjoyed our week in the Galata guesthouse: we changed three different rooms and they were all great (especially the room with the amazing view on the Bosforus, that we suggest to all couples who want to spend a romantic holiday in Istanbul). Tamuna is a nice girl and we appreciated her help. Don't miss the opportunity to stay in the galata guesthouse!

The room could be very nice if there were a small shelf or some hook in the wall. From the hall go shower and toilet for a total of 4 double rooms from. The toilet smells strongly. The kitchenette is equipped with a kettle and there are 7-8 cup and 1 glass. A cup full of various cutlery, no tea towel. Once a week the garbage was disposed of. From the roof terrace there is a beautiful view over the city and the Bosphorus. The location of the apartment is 1st class. But to our right at the outset agreed departure time the landlord was not found. So we did not get back our € 20 deposit. Maybe us the money will still be paid? On our request email from home was quickly reacts with the appropriate commitment. Total: Too bad they could be so beautiful, the apartment / room!
Das Zimmer könnte sehr schön sein, wenn es eine kleine Ablagefläche gäbe oder einige Haken in der Wand. Vom Flur gehen Dusche und WC für insgesamt 4 DZ Zimmer ab. Das WC riecht streng. Die Küchennische ist mit einem Wasserkocher ausgestattet und es gibt 7-8 Becher und 1 Glas. Ein Becher voll verschiedener Bestecke, kein Küchenhandtuch. Einmal in der Woche wurde der Müll entsorgt. Von der Dachterrasse aus gibt es einen schönen Blick über Stadt und Bosporus. Die Lage der Wohnung ist 1. Klasse. Doch zu unserer gleich eingangs verabredeten Abreisezeit war die Vermieterin leider nicht auffindbar. So bekamen wir auch unsere 20 € Kaution nicht zurück. Vielleicht wird uns das Geld noch überwiesen? Auf unsere email Anfrage von zu Hause aus wurde schnell mit entsprechender Zusage reagiert. Insgesamt: Schade, sie könnte so schön sein, die Wohnung/das Zimmer!
great location in a perfect location, including a fantastic roof terrace. Our host was very friendly and hilfsbereit.Ich the apartment can only recommend. When we come to Istanbul again, we will definitely use the apartment again.
tolle Location in perfekter Lage inklusive fantastischer Dachterrasse. Unser Gastgeber war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.Ich kann die Wohnung nur empfehlen. Wenn wir noch mal nach Istanbul kommen werden wir die Wohnung definitiv wieder nehmen.
Nice style of the flat with the brickwalls, which is located in cosy and trendy Tünel quarter nearby Galata tower. We liked the quarter very much. When it is cold outside than be prepared, it is cold in the flat also, but at least hot shower is working ;-) I would recommend the flat to people who have no problems with smoking in it. Only to ask for a doublebed is not enough I experienced, I would recommend to ask for the real size. There is at least one bed with approximately 1,2m wideness which in my opinion is not sufficient for two persons and far away to be called and offered as doublebed. I tried hard it but sufferd with my 1,9m bodyheight three nights before we could change to another nicer room with a real doublebed. The by some people described scary stairway was no problem for us. But indeed, it´s not a villa style. The other visitors of the rooms in the flat were kindly and open minded people as we hoped to meet.
The appartemnet is well situated. Close to the old town.
The view from de terrace on the roof is top!
The rooms are minimal but ok. The only (little) table had only 3 legs instead of 4.
The kitchen was dirty and there were not enough plates and mugs for 6 persons.
The cookware was dirty, incomplete or broke.
The shower has good and enough hot water. Shower was not clean. The showerstand was broke.
Toilet oke but when we arrived there was a very smelly and dirty bucket with old dirty water in it.
The terrace makes the appartment worth to go back to this place.
The apartment would gain significantly through a few small repairs. A broken shower holder is as troublesome as a sink from which no water. So you have to brush your teeth every time in the shower. The promised towels there was not even. What a pity! Of course, the low price is a clear argument and the really sensational good location. 10 minute walk down to the Galata Bridge up or 5 minutes to Istiklal. The best for last: Tamuna is an incredibly kind person. She helped us carry the baggage and took care of us until we were back in the taxi. Everything was on time and uncomplicated. Considering the price, the apartment is for people who mainly need a place to sleep with no frills recommended.
Die Wohnung würde durch ein paar kleine Reparaturen deutlich gewinnen. Ein abgebrochener Brausenhalter ist ebenso lästig, wie ein Waschbecken, aus dem kein Wasser kommt. So muss man jedesmal unter der Dusche Zähne putzen. Die versprochenen Handtücher gab es auch nicht. Schade!
Natürlich ist der günstige Preis ein klares Argument und die wirklich sensationell gute Lage. 10 Minuten zu Fuß runter zur Galatabrücke oder 5 Minuten rauf zur Istiklal. Das beste zum Schluss: Tamuna ist eine unglaublich freundliche Person. Sie half uns beim Tragen des Gepäcks und kümmerte sich um uns, bis wir wieder im Taxi saßen. Alles lief pünktlich und unkompliziert.
In Anbetracht des Preises ist die Wohnung für Leute, die hauptsächlich eine Schlafgelegenheit ohne Schnickschnack brauchen, empfehlenswert.
top view. amazing building. very friendly hosts.
