We stayed here in Dec. 2016 and then again in early March 2017.Very accommodating staff. Lovely room. Great location. Hope they get another cat. We could walk to the Galata Tower and many restaurants, plus we could walk over the Galata Bridge to see Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophis, and Grand Bazaar (this is a long walk) charming cobblestone streets all...

Inconspicuous and low profile hotel in a great area close to good restaurants and bars. With tourism in Turkey suffering as a result of security issues, some hotels are struggling to survive. While the Georges has reduced some of their facilities and services, the hotel remains a pleasant place to stay with excellent and helpful staff.

We stayed at this lovely little hotel for four nights. We had a slight problem with our room halfway through our stay (a small leak during heavy rain) and they promptly moved us to an upgraded room. The hotel itself is small and intimate, and in a great location - about one minutes' walk to Galata tower. The hotel frontage...

A nice find away from the main tourist area. We decided against staying on the Sultanahmet side, preferring to hang out where locals live and eat. We wanted to be able to see the local sights-Ayasofia, Bazaar etc on the other side and then come back to the 'happening' side after a long day out, eat and shop there ,...

It has a lovely rooftop bar with fantastic coctails and absolutely amazing views of the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn and the Hagia Sophia.

I stayed in this hotel during the 1st half of my 1 week Istanbul tour, as it's near the destinations I wanted to cover. The environment is very homey & warm.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 1 week. Overall, it is lovely, and very charming. There are three things which make this hotel excellent in my opinion. The first is the location. It is very, very close to Galata Tower, Istiklal Street and also, the Karakoy Tram station. That makes this location ideal for tourists. The second highlight is...

Really helpful front desk staff to this small, but excellently appointed hotel. The location is within spitting distance of Galata tower and Şişane. Wifi was good and the breakfast on the roof was fab with a view to die for. Very happy - I will be back!

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
