Is the hotel for the guests?

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Aleksandr P. Solo - 15/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I’m fully satisfied by friendliness of the staff and overall impression by the hotel. It looks quite posh and I really loved it! I faced just 2 ‘but’: 1. I paid for the room with view on the Galata Tower or the Golden horn. I was happy to get the room with the burn on the golden horn (1306). And the view was actually 50/50 on the golden horn and the hotel bar. I could see everything in the bar and visitors could see almost everything in my room. The solution is to close the window but I paid for the room with the view. Vicious circle. Moreover, they held parties in the bar till 2 am. It was very noisy when you’re trying to have some rest and even sleep. 2. The Hammam. First day I was informed that the Hammam is not free of Chester for guests. Then receptionist said that I can use it but it closes at 10pm but tomorrow it’s open till 11 pm. Next day I came at 9.45 pm and the guy in Hammam said that they were going to close at 10 pm. Ok, I came the other day at 4 pm and I was told that Hammam is fully booked and there was no way to use it that day. Next day I checked out so eventually I didn’t use the Hammam. Just wasted time :( Everything but these 2 points was marvelous.

We had a very pleasant stay at MGallery Galata. The most impressive aspect of the hotel is its location which is an arm's reach of Galata Tower and beautiful shops and restaurants. The services offerred by the hotel staff are exceptional. We would choose this hotel next time in Istabul.

Unorganized unprofessional personnel

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Mari Couples - 13/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The building is very old and beautiful but it’s situated on a one-way street of electrical goods shops which is always blocked by mini-vans loading and unloading boxes. We had to leave our taxi and go on foot almost every time we tried to get to the hotel. There was a big crowd in the lobby on our check in day and nobody payed any attention to our arrival. The entrance stairs have no slides for havy luggage and I had to wait in the street until my husband came up to the reception, which was also crowded, however only one manager was available to handle all the people waiting in the line. My husband also had to wait for quite a long time until he could get someone’s attention and the bellboy was sent to help us with our suit cases. We booked a superior room but we got a standard one which was tiny (with half electricity sockets out of work) and knew that only on the day of departure when I suddenly had a chance to gaze into a real superior room on our floor. The waiters in the breakfast area are numerous but absolutely unprofessional - had to wait very long to get still water or order coffee and tea. The music in the restaurant was so loud that we had to shout to listen to each other not to say it was not easy to make any order. I asked the waiter to make the music a bit down but no reaction followed. All in all our impression is very poor - we have absolutely no desire to come back to this hotel any more.

Excellent hotel in the middle of Istanbul

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Oliver Couples - 12/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Very friendly reception by Baran Deniz who cared for us throughout the stay. Small room but with a warm and friendly interior. Our room maid Asiye kept everything very clean and tidy. During the weekend there were indeed some parties in the rooftop bar - quite busy and noisy but despite other guest reports our room was calm and quiet. No disturbance at all! Variety and quality of breakfast has been exceptional and with excellent service. So overall we have been very satisfied and would be glad to come back!

Natasha L. Couples - 01/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We stayed here over a weekend and had a lot of disturbance from the bar/club on the top floor. Once we raised this with the hotel they went out of their way to resolve our complaint so it was okay. It would be best to make it clear on check in whether the room is a noisy room or not and give guests the option to choose at that point

It is a really nice hotel with a few problems that need to be addressed

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Noor S. Couples - 01/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I had booked 3 nights at the hotel. When I arrived I was instantly given keys to a room which apparently was reserved for me. Room 1102. It was a really nice room however as night arrived the room was almost part of a party which was going on in a restaurant located right above where the music extremely loud with ppl thumping their feet on the ground and shouting really loud. When I called the reception I was told that the party will end at 1:30 am however the noise went on until 2am and we could not sleep. Once the noise was over and we finally were able to sleep at 6:30am the noise started again with ppl walking in heels and adjusting tables for the breakfast in the same restaurant which went on until 11am. When I went to the reception and mentioned to them the problem from the night before they mentioned that they knew about the problem however didn't have any other rooms in the hotel that night. I told him that in my reservation I had particularly asked for a quiet room. Then they changed the room and we stayed in a much quieter room for the next two nights. The second problem was the hammam. The intention of staying in this hotel was to use the hammam which the last time around was well serviced however this time around they told us that the company servicing the Hammam had left and although we could use it none of the services were available which was disappointing.

Good hotel, but not met my expectation

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Nobuzo Business - 30/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Beautiful hotel, with nice architecture. Most of the staff were friendly, but probably due ot the Easter (?), the front desk receptionist almost ignored me several times. Also, thanks to the upgrade to the junior suite, but what I wanted was not junior suite, but a room with a view. It was in the basement, and my reason of choosing the hotel - a view toward the river, was not satisfied, even though I requested to change the room. I understand - however, the way the font desk treated was "noway, we are full and we gave you upgrade (to the junior suite), what can you ask for more." Is this appropriate way of responding to the request? I'd have accepted the same room, but if only you could have said it differently, I'd have different impression.

Great Experience I did not understand why on my arrival, I was asked to settle my nights when I wanted to go to my room and relaxed after my trip. Few times during my stay, I have been called by a diffeeent name by the reception team. Couple times, I went for an afternoon drink in your restaurant and I had to stand up and go get the waiter for ordering as he was on his phone.
