    Fabulous

    The location and surrounding is very nice for city lovers. The rooms are nicely and lightly decorated. Comfortable bed and layout. Very trendy part of the city. Great city weekend alternative.

    The wall insulation is poor. The lobby and enterence is not well defined. The staff is nice and polite, but give you the impression of being under stress.

    (From my Booked.nety account) Before booking this hotel, I read plenty of reviews and also noted all the negative reviews I came across and I had high expectations of this hotel since it was really costly for us Singapore travelers (cost SGD450 per night, Deluxe Sea View Room, Level 2, No. 10) - well Georges Galata definitely did live up to all my expectations! Boutique as it can be, there is no hotel relationship manager, there is no front desk, there is no buffet breakfast, there is no swimming pool... but what it did offer was a plenty. Luxurious creature comforts, free wifi, coffee machine, ipod dock etc… excellent ala carte breakfast menu which we could order anything from, anytime and anywhere (we had our bfast sometimes at our room balcony, sometimes at their lovely rooftop bar, sometimes way early at 7.00 am and sometimes late at 11.30 am!) and we could order multiples of what we liked from the menu eg: croissants. Food was good, good portion and great presentation. Great view from our balcony, lovely lovely french design and decor, lights coming from the floor and ceiling of our balcony at night. The small gestures but v nice touches like daily turn down services and chocolates, the subtle fragrance that greets you once you step into the hotel/your room etc. I am particular about cleanliness and I always judge a hotel by the type of towels that I am given, well, it was all clean, white and fluffy and the housekeeping was great, as we did not have to call housekeeping for additional things as they'd top it up if they see that we are running low on shampoo or shower foam or moisturiser etc. Lotsa complimentary coffee capsules which myself and my husband appreciated as we drink lotsa of coffee in a single day. And yes, the bed was awesome! Staff performance was excellent too, location was hard for the cabby to find and they gave directions to our cabby on the phone all the way until we reach.

    Beautiful interiors and very friendly staff although they did have a difficulty with english.. The neighbourhood was very boem, artistic and colourful. the rooms very contemporary with all the amenities one could ask for. From the Nespresso machine you could complementary use down to the amazing beds t was a beautiful boutique hotel.

    This hotel has been beautifully renovated, with a careful combination of contemporary and traditional fittings. The rooms are large, with lovely balconies and the rooftop terrace is a stunning place for an evening drink, watching the sun set or enjoying the lights of Istanbul. Being small, the staff know all their guests and are unfailingly attentive in that warm, friendly and generous manner that represents Turkish hospitality. The location is excellent - very close to the Galata Tower and an easy walk or tram ride across to the old city but also close to terrific boutiques if you have time for shopping! We would not hesitate to recommend Georges Hotel Galata and are looking forward to our next stay.

    A small boutique hotel situated in a quiet, cobbled street in the Beyoglu area. Near the Galata Tower and within easy walking distance of Istikal Caddesi. Charming and helpful staff, luxury bedrooms and comfy beds make for a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle of the Old City across the Galata Bridge. Choose a room with a view over the Bosphorous.

    Excellent hotel! Non-smoking throughout, wonderful! Located on a quiet street just a stone throw away from the Galata Tower and Istiklal Street in trendy Beyoglu. Beyoglu is much less touristic than the Sultan Ahmet area, but not further away from the main attractions in the old city than a 10TL/5€ taxi ride, a short ride with the tram, or a good walk. We had a quiet superior king room (1. floor, facing street), VERY comfortable bed, great breakfast (croissant, bred, eggs, ham, french fries, yoghurt w/fruit, nespresso, tea, freshly squeezed orange juice); staff is very friendly and service minded. The hotel opened in Oct. 2011, everything is new and clean. The owner is French and the hotel has a French touch. We loved it! One of the best hotels we have stayed at, will definitely stay here again when we visit Istanbul the next time.

    Even though I'm a resident of Istanbul, I like to spend my weekends at the hotels near to night life. I would say that Georges was the one of the best city hotel I have ever stayed over night in Istanbul. It is located at one of the nicest streets of Istanbul, just few blocks away from Galata Tower and Italian(Dogan) Apartment. When you walk arround the hotel you can both sense the historical and mystical part and also wild and extraordinary side of Istanbul. Hotel is brandnew and quality of the rooms are top class.

    There is no sign as "Georges Hotel Galata", and enterance of the hotel is more looks like a restaurant. So when you arrived to Serdar-i Ekrem Street do not hesitate to enter to the restaurant-looking lobby.

    The staff were very kind and helpful and willing to accommodate every request. The rooms were both lovely and well equipped, the bedding was extremely comfortable and there were nice touches such as the in-room Nespresso machine and L'Occitane bath products. The location was also central for going out and sight seeing.

    The hotel is quite difficult to locate and many taxis did not know where the location was which made it difficult to get back a few times. The bathroom shower was a bit small. Also the hotel does not have a sign so you have to know where it is located.

    They do not seem to handle the reservation service very well. Several employees, especially male, are off-standish and grumpy.

    Nothing at all. It was brilliant.

    We loved the decor of the hotel and the attention to detail. it's an old building which has been beautifully restored combining modern features with classical. Plus the linen and the toileteries are of excellent quality. the views from our balcony and the roof top terrace restaurant are fantastic over the Bospherus. And the breakfast was al a carte menu was good too.

    The lighting in the bathroom over the mirror was not good and it was difficult for me see to put make~up on and for my husband to see to shave. Also there was no where in the room to hang full length items such as my coat, dresses or my abaya ( we travelled from Riyadh). We also found wine by the glass in the restaurant varied in amount even in the same glass. and the measures were often on the mean side. e.g. only have half a flute full of champagne.
