I had 4th floor apartment with voew of Galata tower. Street below is very busy but widows cancelled out the street noise amazingly well. Kitchen is small but has pots, pans, toster, ketter, microwave, stove, espresso machine, everything you need. They had umbrellas in the closet. Staff was extremely accommodating. Anytime you leave they come to you and ask if you need anything. Cab, help with bags, anything. Room service available. I used it only once. Very clean. Curancy exange, coffee shops, restaurants, grocerys all very close. I can see place to buy fruits and vegitables outside my window. Neighborhood felt very safe and busy.
