    Favourite hotel in Istanbul”
    I've stayed here many times and I love it. They provide a wonderful breakfast, the service is great, and the room/bed is beautiful. The local area (Karakoy) is very hip and it's walking distance to literally everywhere. Lots of lovely eateries and shops in Galata. Highly recommend.

    Best hotel stay in Turkey ”
    This hotel was by far the best that I have stayed in Turkey! This hotel provides an extremely posh and luxurious experience, at an affordable price! It has truly spoilt my fiancé and me. Breakfast spread is amazing with huge platters of fresh fruits, jugs of fresh fruit juices, fruits-infused water and made to order hot dishes (eggs, pancakes, waffles etc). I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who’s visiting Istanbul! Also, thank you so much for the free upgrade of room!

    Francisco From London ”
    In a nutshell I reckon the “Vault Karakoy - The House Hotel” is absolutely unmissable and a must stay if you are looking for the perfect complement to the ideal Istanbul experience. The hotel is perfectly situated, pretty close to the Galata tower, making the location unbeatable - some of the city’s key points of interest are all walking distance. The building’s architecture and tasteful interior design tick all the right boxes - the hotel’s building used to be a bank with a vault in one of the lower floors (hence the hotel’s name). We stayed on the second floor in a room that was perfectly decorated with very high ornate ceilings that conveyed an incredible sense of spaciousness. The curtains and other features in the room were in a pleasant tone of olive green, that was enhanced by the white walls, nice choice of paintings, dark wooden floors and furniture, with a lovely big rug that brought everything together.

    Superb stay ”
    The hotel design is an outcome of renovation of an old bank which makes it special with high ceiling and antique features. It gives its vault identity. Staffs are very friendly, dedicated to help you with anything. The location is perfect, just a bridge to cross from the old town area and the tram will take you to most of the major tourist spots. Also the area is quite trendy with restaurants and bars if you are up for those too. The room service was decent, house keeping also tidy. Only hiccups were that some of the amenities and facilities needed maintenace. Bath robe I got had its arm partially ripped off, one of the lamps by the bed was dead and some of the things needed to be fixed in the bathroom that were anchored to the wall Including the shower knob. But still functioning alright. Other than that a perfect place for sweet nights in Istanbul.

    Position, Standard and service
    So good, we returned again. The service here is excellent. A great breakfast, and the room standard is also perfect. Rooftop bar is relaxing and perfect for taking in the views. Perhaps spend a little more and get the larger room. The first time we did this, yet this stay, we forgot and the standard room size is pretty tight. I would say that this is an easy 4 star property, I will definitely come back again next time in Istanbul.

    the room, location and staff
    the room was perfect, the breakfast was a nice change and the staff were very helpful. However the hotel was a little hard to find initially as the driver took us to the other vault karakoy which was the older hotel. Make sure you check where you are going. Good location in relation to the subway and tram. Would definitely go back.

    Beautiful cool hotel in fantastic location ”
    Great staff , great rooms and great location . Roof terrace with stunning views . Due to its central location you can hear some traffic noise and noise from clubs at weekend but I think that’s an issue for most centrally located Istanbul hotels . For our first two nights we stayed in a business 5 star hotel - very luxurious and modern with all the facilities you could imagine but we could hear traffic noise all night from the 21 st floor . I would choose Vault Karakoy every time and can’t wait to return .

Alomost hotel has some mistakes and some managers ignor the problem. but this hotel manager is credible and kind. even I feel some uncomfortable things, I can forget bad feeling except good thinking. During 2 days, I was very confortable. next time i want to book again.

    I've stayed at many, many nice hotels in my life all over the world. The Vault Karakoy ranks up there with the best hotels I have ever stayed at. It is the perfect boutique hotel - 5 stars in every department in my book. Service, personal attention, friendliness, professionalism, beautiful, attention to detail, impeccable are all words that aptly describe this hotel and it's staff. We were traveling with a 2 1/2 year old and she thoroughly enjoyed the hotel as well because if the friendly staff. I highly recommend the terrace level rooms. Great layout and view of Galata tower from the private terrace.
