"The staff is great, very friendly and helpful! They held my extra luggage while I visited Greece so I would have to pay the expensive fees at the airport!! So sweet of them!"

You can enjoy 3 course Lunch for just 10 TL and there is an option for vegetarian and most of the times good for vegans.
If you walk couple of minutes, its Tunel area and Istanbul's famous Istiklal street starts where there are thousands of bars and restaurants offers you real Istanbullian atmosphere. Any kind of food, any price range, any kind of music (from live jazz house, rock to Turkish) is here at Istiklal street.
If you'd like to walk, in 30 minutes you are at Sultanahmet where Ayasofia and Blue Mosque is. By metro is about 15min.
Just a tip, Sultanahmet is a touristic part and Galata is mostly local part of the Istanbul. So enjoy sightseeing there and comeback for real Istanbul local culture to Galata.
We are looking forward to see you soon.
