From there, the tramway goes directly to the historical area of Sultanahmet, where you will find the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia and other famous places.
A note about the renovation : The buildings of the 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…
Please note that the apartment is on the 4th floor without an elevator.

Reviews of this property
First: If you come to Istanbul to sleep, you are wrong here! ;))
I have spent my time in two rooms.
The first room, it was so loud I could not sleep. On the “Galata Tower Place” was/ is party every night! ;D That i must tell you, if you want to book here.
The apartment has a very cozy atmosphere. You can always go to the great roof terrace. My favorite place!!
The second room, in another apartment was ok, not so loud....
But there are wonderful views from everywhere!
The building is very old and everything is kind of very adventurous.^^ I really like that!
Those looking for a room, with hotel-claim (four stars, blah) is wrong here!!
Galata Roadhouse is pure, genuine, not sugarcoated, unaffected, authentic, very interesting, great ....!
I shall return! ;)
Nice contact person and nice city. Unfortunately the apartment wasn't the same that we have booked. We stayed in the same part of the city (beautiful) but we had to sleep on a coach, the gas doesn't worked (no warm water, we couldn't use the kitchen) and it was really noisy. However, Istanbul is an awesome place!
Perfect room for a single person, magnificent views of the Bosphorus, building very well located close to the Galata Tower. I will not hesitate to recontact Galata House Road for a future stay in Istanbul.
Chambre parfaite, pour une personne seule, vue magnifique sur le Bosphore, immeuble très bien situé à deux pas de la Tour de Galata.
Je n'hésiterai pas à recontacter Galata Road House pour un futur séjour à Istanbul.
Reviews for this host's other properties
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.
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.
Du warst leider nicht in Istambul aber es hat alles geklappt Mein bad war sauber und Zweckmäßig Die grosse Terasse war super toll und ich verbrachte gemütliche stunden mit Wunderbaren Blick auf dem Galataturm.Es War ein Ruhiges gemütliches Quartier und echt Türkisch.Zum weiterempfehlen .
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.
