Great location! Our room was very stylish and with lots of space. Just two blocks away from the tram station, that is just two stops away from the main tourist district of Istanbul. Definitely would stay again! A plus, a five minute walk to the Galatha tower, making it easy to visit it at day and nighttime.

We stayed in a deluxe room with our 2.5-year-old. The room was spacious with a king bed. The staff offered us a Numa pack-and-play for our daughter, but she was a little too big for it. The bathroom had a large shower with a handheld shower head and rain shower. The staff was so so so accommodating. We were

This hotel was centrally located. Close to all good restaurants and nightlife and at most 30 minutes to all the historical sites walking or closer if you take public transit. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. The room was great size and the bathroom was so so nice! The breakfast every day was so lovely as well and the rooftop terrace had such great view of the city and wonderful wine! Highly recommend this hotel and would to all my friends and family that would visit in the future.

great value for money. kevin at front desk was a superstar

I stayed at the Vault for a few weeks and I was overall happy about my stay. The hotel is centrally located with walking distance to everything of interest in Istanbul. Because I was going to stay longterm, the staff ended up upgrading me to one of the larger rooms on the fourth floor, which was very nice I thought. The wireless connection, though, was extremely spotty in my room; you could barely watch a video on youtube.

Great experience overall. The hotel maintains the historical feel while managing to be full modern and luxurious. Also perfect location as a base to experience the old city.

We had a spacious room that was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and courteous, and there was always someone there who spoke English. Breakfast was one of the best we had while in Turkey. Our three night was also a great value.

Very pleasant experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

This is an former bank converted into an ultramodern hotel. Super clean, kinda funky and great location. One of the best hotels at any price I've ever been to period, let alone for the current rates

I stayed at this hotel for my birthday treat. The services, comfort, closeness to public transportation and to places of entertainment and to restaurants were incredible. We are coming staying there again for sure!!
