The hotel is located in the European side of Istanbul by the harbor. The location is very strategic as it is close to the cournish with plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby, by a walking distance. The hotel has offers from some websites that includes breakfast and either lunch or dinner. Their kitchen menu is very delicious and their breakfast offers the Turkish traditional breakfast. The staff are simply wonderful (Elena , Yunus , Tarik. Şirvan, abdulla, mustafa) are only a few of them. Thank you halich hotel and see you again.

What a fantastic experience at this beautiful, brand new hotel. The fantastic views are only secondary to the level of care provided by the staff of this hotel in making our 25th Anniversary celebratory trip to Istanbul a truly memorable one. With absolute warmth of good morning wishes from Şirvan at the fantastic breakfast table to the welcoming services from Ulzhan and Tarik Çan at the reception, we felt like we were home away from home. Not to forget the ever appreciated assistance from Gökhan at the gate, one would never forget for a second that this indeed is a special hotel. The rooms, the cleanliness and the spaciousness is above average. It is also worth mentioning that this location is extremely close to the Haliç metro station with bus stations right in the front and the tram at walking distance. All in all, what an amazing experience 👌👌

The Halich Hotel is truly a gem among the hundreds of hotels in Istanbul. The location is extremely convenient, as it's walking distance from the Galata Tower, Karakoy ferry port (for Bosphorous cruises), and trams to Sultanahmet historic district and Istikal (10 min tram ride).
Rooms are modern and the family/deluxe rooms offer truly stunning views of the Golden Horn- as does the rooftop restaurant.

But what really sets the Halich Hotel apart is the incredibly warm & friendly staff, who go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their hotel and city. For instance, they not only generously upgraded us to a family room when we realized our original rooms did not face the sea, but they even offered to lend their own Istanbul tram cards to us. Tarik Can, Captain Murat, and the rest of the staff did a truly exceptional job!

All in all, I would highly recommend the Halich Hotel for anyone looking for a comfortable and truly hospitable stay in Istanbul.

Nice location close to Galata tower, taksim and istiklal street.
Hotel staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful.
The rooms are modern and clean.
Breakfast was delicious, served on the top floor overlooking the Bosphorus.
The hotel owner was there during our stay and popped over to make sure everything was ok which was lovely, he told us he has a restaurant at home in London which will be visiting after such a great stay.

The only negative point was that we paid for internet on our mobiles, when on checking out the staff informed us there was actually free Wi-Fi at the hotel but the staff had forgotten to give us the password!

There is almost nothing to not like at the hotel. You get true value for your money. The location is perfectly centered in Istanbul with all sights at just a short walk or public transport trip away. The staff does everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible and are very willing to support you with booking additional trips and taxis. Also the breakfast is absolutely fresh and tasteful, a great way to start your day!

The only thing not to like is the elevator. All eight floors make use of the same elevator, which can cause long delays if you need to get up or down. Besides from using the service elevator, there unfortunately was no fix for this.

Upon arrival, our first impression of the hotel was not great. This is a small hotel located in a very crowded old area of town.
Since we chose this hotel because of it’s great reviews, we wanted to give it a chance. So, we upgraded our room to higher floor with sea view. However, what made our stay very different and enjoyable was the wonderful staff at Halic hotel. They are all super friendly.
Ms. Sirvan in Guest relations did her best to make us feel comfortable. Mr. Tarik at the front desk was very approachable and made us feel welcome. Special thanks to Enis Can from the hosting team who has a big heart and great personality. He served us great dinner with a big smile every evening. Thank you all!

We arrived in the evening. I had high expectations, being a very experienced traveler. We were greeted by very friendly reception staff and we got room 601.
It was, how can I say, a bit strange. The room as such was very pretty, however, the setup wasn’t right. When you stood in front of the window in a certain angle, the view of the city and a huge mosque and the water and everything was so breathtaking that you wanted to cry. When you turned yourself around slightly, in front of the same window, you looked into a dead, rundown building which was completely like a huge eye sore, yet still interesting, in a way. So, to put a long story short: I moved the bed. Yes, luckily it was such a kind of queen bed that was not connected to other furniture, it was movable. I placed the bed into the right angle with the most amazing view, and the job was done. I just asked myself, what kind of person would arrange the room in such a Feng Shui unworthy style, and plus, additionally, if leaving the bed where it was, you would be looking right into the very brightly lit up letters of the hotel name, on the facade outside the window! Nobody would be able to sleep like that!
Once this was sorted, we had our evening dinner on top floor, the restaurant has even more breathtaking views, it’s simply fabulous and the food was great, too. The kitchen staff was very accommodating to my special wishes regarding food, I was very grateful for that.
The location of the hotel is perfect. You are basically right at the waterfront, many restaurants in walking distance, beautiful views, buses, ships, metro, all at the doorstep.
Nice little smoking area outside of the door.
Fantastic place, thank you to all!!!!

The Hotel is great, food is also amazing. The room was cozy and just overall checks all the boxes..

Hygiene speaking these days is very important and I can assure you that this hotel is spot on the note for that.

It is a short walk away from the Galata Tower and close by to the metro station and not so far away from the bridge that is in the Golden Horn.

The staff was welcoming , very friendly and are very fun to talk to as well... They were very informative, can give nice suggestions and were good listeners as well.

Thank you alot to Yunis, Elena , Sirvan, Mustafa my man, Tarik, Sirvan, Dilek, Etem and Karim for making my 14 nights stay there exciting, fresh, personal and superb.

My most treasured moments were the conversations I had late at night because I sometimes have a pinch of insomnia when I travel. These conversations were mainly with either Yunis, Mustafa or Tarik... In the morning conversations with Elena before I go on a tour or any time I am in the restaurant with Sirvan or Karim (who sadly left the hotel during my stay).
