Nordstern Hotel Galata, Istanbul
The location was excellent, right by the metro, and not too far from attractions. The breakfast was amazing, with a view!

Very Good8.0
A hotel past its prime in a great location
Stayed at the Nordstern for a night only as we had an early morning flight the next morning. The hotel is an older small hotel that seems to be past its prime. We had an issue where the light in the bathroom was out and it could not be fixed till after we had left. Being a small black colored bathroom without light, we had issues using the bathroom. The staff was very courteous and tried their best to solve our problems, even if it was beyond their ability. The location is great. We didnt get to try their breakfast as we left before it opened. Overall, I dont feel this hotel is in the right star category on Our expectations were higher and hence so was our disappointment. You could get much better hotels within a similar price range.

Wonderful large high-ceilinged room with classic decor, modern amenities (amazing shower), view of the Hagia Sofia, and great central location to both the old city and Galata. Will definitely stay here again.
