An attractively renovated, century-old building so close to the 14th-century Galata Tower that you can almost reach out and touch it, the Anemon Galata provides plenty of old-world charm. The rooms are elegant and comfortable, if showing some wear. Breakfast is served in an upstairs restaurant with wonderful views of the tower and the Golden Horn, while the underground Sensus Wine Bar carries hundreds of local vintages, along with cheese plates and other light fare. Ask
for a room in the back to get a view of the Old City and avoid noise.
