Is quite far from city center, but we have chosen this hotel as it was close to the wedding place where we were guests.
This was my second visit to Istanbul after 10 years. First time we came to Istanbul for a weekend, visited museums and mosques and stayed in old town. The goal of this visit was friends wedding, which was at Cubuklu 29. My turkish friends recommended to stay in Taksim or Karokoy. Karokoy is in the crossroad between old town and Asia. What i liked the best about Karokoy that it feels like western Europe: nice people, good cafes and restaurants. After doing some research where to stay we have chosen Georges Galata hotel. Although we didnt stay in Georges Galata, due to changed travel plans and made last minute booking to 10 Karokoy. This 5* hotel we booked only for 64 euros excluding the breakfast, which we were later very happy about, because 3 minute walk was the best turkish breakfast experience and somewhere for the half of hotel price (20euros for two).
