                      Tiny rooms, much smaller than they appear on the website pictures.

                      We liked the location of the hotel because we were not in the main tourist area of the old town, or in the high rent area of Taksit with all of the high end shopping. The location was perfect because we could easily walk to the old town historical sights, find interesting people, restaurants and shops around the Galata tour just a few blocks away, and take the tram or walk to the high end shops in Taksit. We also found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. This is a great place to stay!

                      Hotel location is best of the best to start city walks for the ones who is looking for history, gourme, leasure and shopping at the same time. That's why we selected this hotel. They showed marvelous hospitality for us. All staff and the hotel manager was so kind, energetic and positive. Room was new, clean, well equiped and has a wonderful bosphorus view, it was beyond our expectations. Breakfast was very rich. As a frequent traveller all around the world, we highly recommend this hotel to everyone with peace of mind who is looking for comfort and quality at a friendly atmosphere in historical istanbul.

                      The Hotel Rooms were "Bigger" than what i had expected. After reading numerous stories of "Small" rooms in Istanbul and seeing my other friends Hotel room which was "smaller" than our, I was happy with the cleanliness of the room and the Bathroom!!! Thumbs UP!!

                      The Surrounding area of the hotel is a bit dingy! Its a Safe Place and no issues with that, but the surrounding building are completely appalling!!! But the view from the restaurant and the proximity of the tramlines are Excellent!!! Food could have been better!!

                      Our room at Galata La Bella was exceptional with a very comfortable bed, nice linens, and a fantastic view of the old city across the Golden Horn. But the best part was the shower with an oversized rainfall-type showerhead and an oversized handheld spray. One of the best bathrooms we have ever had overseas. Breakfast was also very special -- a huge spread with olives, cheeses, vegetables, eggs, yogurt, great bread and yummy homemade jams. Plus wonderful Turkish black tea. The hotel is very well-located just south of the Galata Tower -- close to everything but quite peaceful. Don't miss the fabulous view from the rooftop terrace.

                      All good.

                      The hotel is beautifully designed with great rooms with great city views. The location of the hotel is ideal. It is very near to the subway and tram and within walking distance of the bazaars as well as Taksim. Breakfast was an excellent spread. Staff are ever helpful and friendly. Great city views of the golden horn river and old city from the terrace. Airport shuttle service free subject to length of your stay.

                      Location: Situated for visits to the Sultan Ahmet area and equally so to Taksim area were very easy. Very convenient to arrange your visits to both places in one day and be satisfied that you have seen enough for the day. Tram + Metro (Tunel) very close by EXCELLENT Staff very helpful.

                      Difficulty in locating the hotel on arrival.

                      You might feel that the hotel is in the middle of nowhere when you arrive there (specially at night) but you are actually just in a perfect place, in 5 min walk you are in the old istambul and can easily walk to the most known monuments, and in less than 5 min walk you are at the Galata tower and can enjoy the occidental part of town. The rooms are not the biggest ones, but they are clean and comfortable, and the breackfast is good, with fresh fruits everyday. The service is kind and correct and they will help you if they know how. I would come back and stay there if i ever go back to Istambul
