A note about the renovation : The buildings of this historical neighborhood of Galata date from the end of the 18th century. Our flats were renovated by craftsmen using the finest traditional methods. They kept the old stones of walls and, under about twenty coats of paint, they discovered wonderful ancient patterns on the ceilings…

I had avery pleasant stay at Galata Roadhouse. Thank you Anouk for being so helpful! The location is perfect to get around and very close to public transport. Nice breakfast on the roof terrace and fantastic view on the Bosphorus. I will definitely keep it in mind for my next visit.

Cozy room in Galata area (Beyoğlu)

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!

Cosy Room in the Heart of İstanbul (4)

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.

Apartment with Bosphorus View Terrace

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.

COSY studio flat in the Galata Tower area

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.

Bright room-Beautiful apartment

The apartment is very centrally located. The interior was zwegsmässig and well equipped. Unfortunately, not everything was perfect. The cleanliness of the apartment was very bad. The bathroom may have been cleaned for the last time months ago. The roof terrace is absolutely the best. It has a view of the most beautiful places in Istanbul. Conclusion:. Yeah! Apartment is cheap, but very dirty. There were cockroaches and that bothered us. For one or two days bearable, but I would no longer want to stay in this apartment. It was, in my opinion, is no legal angemelgete Guesthouse. No marked fire exits, fire extinguishers seen any. More of a black market business.

Amazing Bosphorus' view Room for 2 in historical apartment*****(7)

Because the rooms in this house were full Tamuna gave us a room in the opposite building. Advantage was the wonderful terrace with a fantastic view over the Bosporus. Our room had a nice view and the bed was good. For the rest we had the same experience as Eddy. A lot of small technical problems that could have been solved easily and rooms that could be cleaned better. It was disappointing that Tamuna did not react on our complaints.
Conclusion: very nice apartments, super location but it is disappointing that you have to accept the disadvantages of “authentic” rooms ….
