It’s a new place... all rooms have already changed, the hotel has located in karaköy, otherwise it surounded cafes and restaurants... the hotel personnel is perfect and hotel is open 24 hours a day. It’s a botique hotel with 7 rooms, rooms are so comfort and clean... although not expensive! It has located in nice area near of istiklal and taksim squar, though it’s not very crowdy...

I was traveling in the area when I became stranded. The hostel that had accepted my reservation (and my money) was closed and completely gutted when I arrived to stay. It began pouring rain! Horrid. So, I stopped into Galata My Home, as it happened to be on the corner, and the fellow managing the place helped me. He phoned the mediator that booked my reservation and tried to negotiate my refund. This transaction proved too complicated for that very moment, but he offered me a discount on a room. It was refreshing to stay in a nice room. There is nothing more rewarding than benefitting from the benevolence of people when you run into trouble.
Now known as the Galata Agora

Horrible place. Huge bug infestation. Got 30+ bug bites in my four nights. They moved rooms, and there were just as many bugs as before. One day the water did not work, and the only employee was autistic, which made things difficult, because he believed he could speak english, but in reality, he only knew "Ok no problem". When we were leaving they were being shut down by the police, and we were rushed out.
Diverted to another hotel for overbooking

We booked a double bedroom on booking.com just the day before our arrival, as we did for every destination of our journey through Turkey. After 14 hours of bus trip from Goreme to Istanbul, we were just more than happy to enter in our room and take shower. Get off the tram at Karakoy stop, we walked to the hotel and actually it was quite easy to find it. Entered in the reception it was clear that something was going wrong, it seemed like they didn't expect us at all. And indeed the hotel was full and they suggested us to move to another hotel, for the same price, in Sultanahmet area. I don't wanna talk about this other hotel now (room ridiculously small, hairs in the shower...), but, reading on some blogs after that, I discovered that also other travellers had the same experience in the Galata Pasha Hotel.
Waste of money

Only good for single backpackers. If you are someone not sensitive to cleanliness and noise, you might consider this place. The windows are not soundproof and it feels like you are sleeping on the pedestrian side on the street.
