The location is perfect if you want to stay on the European side of Istanbul, excellent transport links, a great baklava place open until 1am just around the corner and walking distance to Galata Bridge.

The bed was comfy and everything smelled nice.

The breakfast was OK although if you're after a cooked breakfast they only have 3 items in the hot plate area and sometimes it wasn't turned on so the food was cold. The three items are scrambled eggs, chopped up frankfurter style sausages and cheese in pastry.

I felt generally that the hotel didn't have a very welcoming vibe at all. It felt like we had offended them in some way. There were two men on reception, probably doing 12 hour shifts each as they're was always one of them there. One of them was nice and friendly but the other just stood and stared at us every time we passed.

I've no idea what we did to offend, we had minimal contact with the staff and I didn't have any skin on show below my neck other than my hands and forearms and I don't have any tattoos, piercings or an unusual hair style or colour. I was treated the same in some areas of the European side of Istanbul, just stared at and only felt comfortable when wearing a headscarf. All the staring stopped as soon as I wore a headscarf. So the reception man who made us feel awkward and unwelcome was probably just behaving normally for the area but I don't feel like it's appropriate for hotel staff to behave that way where the hotel is open to international guests.

Even the email sent to ask me to write this review was addressed to my husband. The reservation was made in my name, from my booking.com account, paid for with my credit card and the email was sent to my email address.

I'm not usually bothered by sexism but it's the only reason I can think of that made me as a paying guest feel unwelcome.

If I returned to Istanbul I would stay on the Asian side. I felt totally safe and normal there. I've travelled all over the world but always expect to be treated with respect at a hotel even if the culture of the country I'm visiting generally doesn't treat people equally.

Ventilation in the room was poor, if you didn't open a window before having a shower then the humidity in the room made it impossible to get dry, even though the extractor fan in the bathroom was very loud, it didn't seem to extract much.

The room was small but that doesn't bother us. The bathroom was impractically small and there was black mould in the shower and under the sink (which you could see when sitting on the loo).

To summarise -

Pros:
- excellent location for visiting everything
- very comfy bed
- tasty enough breakfast

Cons:
- poor ventilation and lack of fresh air
- poor lighting and lack of natural light
- unwelcoming staff
- pokey bathroom with mould

If there are some better rooms and the staff were more welcoming I'd stay again. Breakfast time was gloomy rather than happy and positive, the building is lovely and we did appreciate the comfy bed. I feel like overall the place just needs some light and air and positivity.

The location is very good. The hotel is close all public transportation. There is a lot of good restaurant near the hotel. The rooms are really clean and well equiped. Staff was very kind and helpful. I loved the breakfast from top floor. The view iş amazing.

This hotel is in a Central location and close to the Karakoy Metro stop and five minutes walking distance away. The only disappointment is that the hotel does not have a bar. Other than that, the hotel staff , including the cleaners, are friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble in assisting with any enquiry. And the views from my room on the 5th floor and from the restaurant on the the top 6th floor, are stunning as it looks across the Bosphorus. Regarding the location, use the Haviast Shuttle bus from the airport and go to Sultanahmet, NOT Taxsim. From there use the Sultanahmet Metro to Karakoy - destination KABATAS. This is the easyist and cheapest way to travel - you can do that from Taxsim but a little more complicated. Very nice Restaurant/Cafe close by serving healthy meals - its popular so book a table. If interested in Hamans use the Kilic Pasa Hamami - expensive but well worth the cost and the Traditional Hamam Ritual is amazing - one stop from Karakoy to Tophane. Great time I had in Istanbul and would stay at the Ada Karakoy again.

Very nice place and location
With very friendly staff.
Good breakfast
Near the sea and to tram station

The economic room is so small nearly
2.5 m * 2.5 m
If you like more space book another room type.
Otherwise, it's fantastic.

Highly recommended

The location is near the sea, nice view. Breakfast is on the top floor, still some good views now. Also two out of three morning breakfast we stayed in nearby food market which is brilliant.
Price is very reasonable.
Bedroom is very small but is ok compared to the price, still got room for two large luggage.

Questions & answers about the rooms

Answer from Solo 1517

Well I can't actually remember - the hotel is in the centre of a built up area. I had a room on the 3rd floor and yes there was a window in the bathroom not that you could see anything; the room was quiet and to my liking. If you are out after breakfast, on the top floor, which has a spectacular view across the bosphorus and an excellent breakfast, and then out all day, views from my point of view from the hotel doesn't matter all that much. Obviously people want different things, so spend more money and you get fantastic views of Istanbul, but I can assure you step out of the hotel, walk to the port or take the metro virtually on your doorstep, what more do you want to explore a wonderful city. And of course all big hotel bars provide you with excellent views at night or at the end of a the day, with a glass of something to sip and relax and ponder on what you are going to do tomorrow! So just enjoy.
