Since Galata is a historic district with very narrow streets and public spaces, it is difficult for any hotel to have a private parking lot. However, we are pleased to offer valet parking for guests with a private vehicle for a fee of 10 EUR per night with- no in/out privileges. Besides, there is a multi-storey car park (Kuledibi Kat Otoparkı) on the İlk Belediye Street. It is just opposite the Hotel Meroddi Bağdatlıyan. The multi-storey parking lot is subject to charge 8 EUR for 24 hours for standard vehicles. And it can accommodate up to 400 cars.
