This trendy hotel has Galata tower at the end of the street, make sure you have plenty of time to take a stroll around the area, as its all uphill and downhill. Plenty of chic cafes and coffee bars to make it a little easier.
The staff here are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble, and speaking English is great for us lazy Brits ! I agree with Trevor90210 that the room was a little musty, but standing on the balcony overlooking the Bosphorus more than made up for it.
The roof top terrace cocktail bar was a little overpriced, but you're paying for the stunning view, especially in the evening. Overall a great mini break destination.

Room Tip: Views of the Bosphuros Strait are better from the 3rd floor upwards.

Dear Kevin,

Thank you for your kind and generous words. We live to hear such praise and are very happy that you've had a good time with us.

As for your criticism regarding the room, Georges was built at the end of the 19th century (1882) and as you can imagine things were a bit rough those days. However, we take all our guests' views to heart and have taken steps to reduce any feeling of mustiness in all of our rooms.

We hope to welcome you again in our beautiful city.

Until then, love from Georges,

Fulya Ulusoy
General Manager

A lovely boutique hotel in a trendy neighbourhood with the Galata at the end of the street. I had prearranged pickup from the airport and was a welcoming arrival at 5.25am. Our Deluxe Room with Balcony and Seaview was gorgeous. We didn't make the most of the balcony as it was only a one night stay, but it was a gorgeous view of the Bosphorus and surrounding area (even with the spiral fire escape staircase right in the front of the view). The bed was SUPER comfortable and the amenities in the room were exceptional. The nespresso machine was a nice extra. The only issue I had was there was literally no space in the bathroom to put any of my toiletries on, let along for another person.

We had sunset drinks in the newly opened rooftop bar and the view was stunning, however, didn't make use of the outdoor area as it was too cold.

It's location near the Galata makes it a perfect place to stay for a quick trip. It was also within easy walking distance to the main shopping area, Taksim Square and a tonne of restaurants to choose from. We ate breakfast and dinner at the Gurney Restaurant which is under the Galata Tower and it was exceptional food, service and wine. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had an early flight the next morning so pre-arranged a taxi to take us to the airport. Check out was seamless and efficient and we found the staff very accommodation and helpful.

Would definitely stay again.

Boutique hotel on a side street in trendy part of town. The room had a bit of a musty smell, which may be because of the lack of ventilation in the bathroom. We wish we’d gotten one with a view of the Bosporus. The rooftop bar is quite nice, the food average, the view superb. Staff is nice and accommodating. It’s a hassle for taxis to get here, so be prepared from some hilly walking. Nearby GalataTower had a cool light show on Friday night, with a youthful local crowd milling about.

Room Tip: Request rooftop and/or one with balcony
