Vault Karakoy

Located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Karakoy, Vault Karakoy is close to Salt Galata, Galata Tower, Spice Bazaar, Suleymaniye Mosque, and Grand Bazaar. The hotel highlights art and culture, blending classic and contemporary styles. Restored and opened in 2014 by award winning architect Han Tumertekin, the renovated bank building retains many original features, while the modern interiors were inspired by its imposing bank vaults, giving the hotel its name. The 62 air-conditioned guestrooms come furnished with minibars and safes, complimentary internet, iPod docking station, and LCD TVs. In the lobby, the restaurant Kasa Lokanta & Bar serves up a breakfast buffet in the morning and seasonal international and Turkish cuisine for lunch and dinner. The in-house art curator allows artistic sensibilities of the Karakoy art scene to be reflected within Vault Karakoy.
