Friendly staff, high quality management
Hotel is located in the middle of city and close to most popular places (in walking distance)
rooms are comfortable and area was enough for 2.
Breakfast was satisfactory... what else would you need...
One of my favorites and would like to stay again of course...

Great hotel, not difficult to find our taxi driver knew exactly where it was. We were welcomed with a smile and warm greetings, they readily helped with our luggage. Check-in went smooth even though we were early they invited us to enjoy the complimentary breakfast and they would get the room ready right away! No complaints, great room with a little balcony, awesome TV CHANNELS, a gazillion in English but you have to search for them but once you do you have several movie and news channels, etc. Great location near metro and food and shopping. Our favorite part was the staff though, they could not have been nicer, if back in Istanbul we will definitely stay here again.
My husband and I spent 5 nights at this hotel while I attended a conference at the nearby Istanbul Congress Hall (5 minutes walk away). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The room was quite generous in size. Staff provided excellent service. Located only 20 minutes walk away from Taksim square but far enough away from the recent demonstrations there, 3 minutes walk to the Metro and nearby high-end shops and boutiques and cafes. Excellent location, excellent facilities, excellent service, excellent value for money. We also stayed at another hotel whilst in Istanbul but the Gallery would be my first choice for future stays in Istanbul.

Please take note that this hotel is not on the main road and make sure that you know the exact location/street via map or whatever means. It goes down on a hilly road to the back ally. However, it is pretty convenient, only 150m to nearest Osmanbey train st. There is a grocery store at the street behind the hotel. The back street looks dodgy at first glance but I can assure you that it is safe and people are friendly.
The hotel has a lift so it make it easy for all your luggages even to the top floor. The room is clean and nice, we got a loft with build in kitchen, air conditioning and washing machine. It doesn't have view but overall we were happy with the cleanliness, security and all staff were friendly. To save cost you can take the Havatas bus to and from the airport at Taksim point hotel which is about 900m walk, a bit difficult if you have huge luggage but only 10 lira!.
Basically there is no hotel personnel to be in charge of the most essential things, like taking care of the not running hot water, unmatching keys for the entrance gate, and no pick-up phones at the reception etc.
Affluent Nisantasi, famed for its nightlife, is full of boutiques, cafés, pubs, restaurants, and nightclubs. Browse the haute couture stores on Abdi Ipekci Street and take a breather at a chic café on Atiye Street.
