It is now the hotel I choose without looking at any other when travelling to Istanbul. Bankerhan is perfectly located in a beautiful quiet street at a few minutes below Galata Tower, and also close to Galata Bridge. The staff are excessively nice and helpful, and definitely a place I recommend. Thank you so much for the excellent service and good moments I enjoyed staying at your hotel. I will be back.

Hotel's Favourite
I’ve been travelling through Europe for the past 3 months and have been living pretty much in hotels. I’m happy to say I saved the best one til last. The Manager and staff have been absolutely wonderful with such generous hospitality. Not only did they change my “non refundable” room due to flight cancellation but also gave me choice of room! The location is amazing, best food in close proximity or just a take a little longer stroll for a huge selection of eats! The bed is so comfortable, rooms cleaned every day and it’s quiet! I’ve extended my stay here by another 2 weeks as I feel like I’m at home and I love Istanbul!

Bankerhan Hotel has been amazing through and through. Zeynep will welcome you and make you feel at home from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. The hotel is perfectly situated between Galata Tower and the Bosphorus, offering perfect little gems of shops, cafes and restaurant at walking distance. The rooms are very comfortable, the beds are amazing! I will definitely come back here for my next visit to Istanbul. Thanks again to all the staff, and special thank you to Zeynep!!

I enjoyed my stay at the Bankerhan immensely. The room was a little on the small side, but with it's features and amenities I was extremely happy. Electric shades, very nice and modern bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. Open up the widows and what an amazing view! I loved the art in the hallways- even took a high-def. picture to see if I could recreate them. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Not far from Galata Tower. I would have no problem staying there again. For the price, it's much better then others in price ranges are even higher.
