More than its 1500 year history, Galata Tower is one of the most beloved monument in Istanbul. On our roof terrace you may have a great overlook at the tower while enjoying your Turkish breakfast.
Galata Tower, one of the oldest and most beautiful towers in the world, was constructed in 528, during the reign of the Byzantine Empire. It was used in the 13th century by the Genoese. From the top there is a marvelous panaroma of the Golden Horn, Bosphorus, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia, Maidens Tower, old city Sultanahmet.
The tower was erected to observe the port and the city, and after being used for various purposes over the centuries, it has now reassumed its original function of watch tower - this time to enjoy the view. An elevator takes the visitors to the top two floors of the tower that are today occupied by a restaurant.
