Raian P. Couples - 12/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

- There was a piece of broken (2cm in length) glass in between the sofa and the bed that was there before we checked-in, even though room service cleaned the room multiple times over our stay. Distracted, I stepped on the glass one night and punctured my right foot. Luckily, it wasn't a deep cut so it was fine, but the room cleaning should be more attentive. - WiFi of the hotel was unbearably slow during our entire stay - Room we were assigned, 1208 I believe, was noisy (there was some sort of machine or generator running all night right out the window, so we couldn't sleep with the window open due to the noise, every day. - I was unable to cast my devices to the room TV - Hotel staff was nice and pleasant

Dear Raian P., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the The Galata Istanbul Hotel - MGallery. We are sorry to hear that you had such an experience and we couldn't make you fully satisfied. As we investigate the issue, there is no information regarding neither glass nor noise.

Good hotel with poor breakfast and low health standard

Anonymous Couples - 09/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice room although a bit small for a Suite. Very poor breakfast. Poor product quality and choice. Many people not wearing mask in the hotel and no staff telling people to put them on. Not accpetable in the current situation.

Dear Tanguy R., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the The Galata Istanbul Hotel - MGallery. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. We would like to clarify some points of your review. Because of the precautions taken for the Covid-19, we do not serve the breakfast as open buffet but the content of the breakfast is the same. The only change is that you order and our team brings you whatever you would like to receive. We really care about the hygiene especially after the pandemic, we increased the importance we give on that sentiment. All of our employees wear masks and whenever we face a guest without mask, we warn them and give new one. At MGallery, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely,

Friendly staff, good location, need to improve breakfast, poor room cleanliness

Corinne G. Families - 24/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

we booked a room for 3 adults and the sofa was not comfortable at all. Moreover Breakfast is the most important amenity when staying at a hotel and I was very disappointed by the quality of the food. No choice, no pancakes, no fresh orange juice. we had to request bread every time to the waiter. It was not good enough for a five star hotel. before booking this hotel, we had a look at the breakfast and nothing was mentioned on your website.

Dear Corinne Annick Madeleine g., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the The Galata Istanbul Hotel - MGallery. I am sorry that your experience about breakfast did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Because of the current situations of the pandemic, the service type of the breakfast has been changed considering the precautions to protect your health. That's why everything in breakfast is given upon request by the waiters. At MGallery, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely,

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Scott H. Couples - 20/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had just stayed at the M Gallery in Odessa, Ukraine and absolutely loved it. So we decided to give the one in Istanbul a try, but it was not nearly as good. The location is a bit odd down a side street with not much traffic. Getting a taxi was tricky since they generally don't drive down that street and the hotel said it's not possible for them to call for a cab (which was shocking for a hotel of this caliber). The room was fine, kind of dark and with very complicated light switches, but it was comfortable. The bathroom, however, was tiny, especially compared to the size of the room. It's so small that the door to the bathroom is constantly in your way -- they really need to redesign this. Breakfast was decent. I felt like the hotel and restaurant did a good job with Covid protocols and we felt safe. Overall an ok stay, but there are so many good hotels in Istanbul, I would probably try staying somewhere else on my next visit to the city.

Dear Scott H., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the The Galata Istanbul Hotel - MGallery. It is always a pleasure to receive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. For the taxi, our staff uses an online appliction to send a request but when the all taxis are busy in the area, it takes time to receive response from drivers. Since the hotel is located in the center area, there is a high demand for taxis especially in rainy days. It is not something dependent on us. Additionally, there is an option of online check-in for our guest who made their reservation directly via Accor system to gain time. You made your reservation via Accor system, so, you should have been able to make online check-in. Our staff at the reception works very fast but still if you don't want to lose time with the check-in procedure, there is an online option which you can use next time. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely,

Great stay!

The hotel was great, the room... But the staff left the best impression on me. Really helpful, and generally good people. The hotel was on the best location possible. 3 minute walks to the bridge which leads you to the bazaar, and 5-6 minute walk to a bunch of restaurants and cafes.

Dear Guest Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and had a great time. We really appreciate the time you took to write us an amazing review. The positive comments about the staff makes us feel appreciated and makes us strive work hard :). We are looking forward to have you back in our property in the near. Thank you again. Warm Regards.

All was good - the people, rooms and hotel. They were not busy and yet they forgot the most important request I made while booking. In fact , I received a reply acknowledging my request. My partners birthday on the 10th , the day we were checking out and I requested a slice of cake by the hotel as a surprise. The surprise I got was, it didn't come.

robertmP1037LN 02/03/2020 TripAdvisor review

We had a truly excellent stay at this fabulous bespoke hotel. While members of the All/Accor programme, it was only the second time to experience the MGallery brand. And it was a very smart choice by us because this is a very special spot. Well located for transport around the city via tram and public transport, but it is the hotel itself that was the best part of the experience. Super well designed with great elegance, taste and decor. It has a terrace bar that offers a spectacular fantastic view of the town and its landmarks. Fabulous restaurant too although you should book because it is very popular with the local clientele which also says a lot. Prices for delicious Turkish food were very reasonable indeed. Very extensive choice for both breakfast and dinner. So good in fact that we had dinner there each night of our stay which is very unusual for us. The team are also something very special especially for personalised service. It's not often that so many members of a hotel team remember you by name. From the experience of the professional staff at the reception to the service oriented members of the restaurant/bar/hospitality people, we were made to feel very special indeed. So polite and eager to assist in any way at all, they were all real stars! Sad to leave - but will definitely be back when we return to Istanbul. Our room was specious and spotlessly clean. Although only having a partial view of the city, it was designed to maximise natural light. Beds were luxurious and the walk-in shower just perfect.
