You are coming to Istanbul, that means you are looking for something historical but urban, something imperial but humble, something oriental but western, something old style but fresh. You may find real comfort in a spacious picture.

Most of the furniture has been taken from our antique shop, cleaned, varnished and settled to make a difference and create an exceptional decoration and make you feel yourself someone special who already you are. You will have a tow comfortable beds available, a double one in the master bedroom and a single which can be converted into a double if unfolded. To cook your meals and to have long and relaxing baths you’ll have a kitchen and a bathroom, both large and well-equipped. There will be a small garden you may share with our other flat in a month.

Cezayir Street known as French quarter is a few steps away. Also Istiklal Street, Asmali Mescit, Galata, Cihangir in walking distance. The touristic attractions of Eminonu, Topkapi Palace, Dolmabahce Palace, Bosphorus tours with ferries, Spice Bazaar, Grand Bazaar, several old hamams, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia are very easy to access by tram. You may walk those routes which could be fun also.

This is really lovely deluxe flat in Galatasaray managed by directly the owners who like to meet people from around the world. If you seek for exceptional places, this is it.

Want to go to Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace or Grand Bazaar. Get a tram from Tophane after 5 minutes’ walk. Would you like to shop? Walk to Galatasaray, Istiklal Street in 5 minutes and get everything you want.

You want to try a glass of Raki? "Cicek Pasaji - Passage de Fleure", an old and very decorative gallery with full of drink houses, is in 5 minutes’ walk away. Or you may go to Nevizade Street after there. But take it slow, Raki would make you dizzy. It is our strong and very delicious spirit. It's the best in a conversation. Or you can take Galata area, near the Galata Tower. You may get there in 15 minutes by walking. There are new shops and cafes await you.

Cezayir Street, also known French Street is 25 steps up. You cannot find anything French, but lots of cafes and restaurants offers variety of courses from Turkish and international cuisine. In the street there are singers playing guitar and sing popular Turkish and English songs in the evening. This ambiance attracts tourists and natives together.
Of course entertainment is not the only thing we have. History begins from our building and street. In Tophane, the old arsenal building, the Mosque of the Admiral Kilic Ali Pasha, Modern Art museum and the new art galleries are some of attractive places you would like to interest.

If you see your days are not available on calendar or if you have a bigger group, please ask for any other rooms, because we have 6 flats in the same building with numbers of capacity for hosting 26 people at the same time.

So, lots of words to attract your attention.

We have some more space to write something, but why don't you come here to explore the others?

Thanks for visiting.

Nice decorated loft with indeed nice terrace.
A nice kitchen and good bed!
The loft is situated in a neighbourhood with a lot of little shops,restaurants, juppies and students.
The owner tells you a lot about the neighbourhood and all the nice places to eat and see.
We had a great time in this great city!!

Elegantes Loft? Wohl eher eine normale Dachgeschosswohnung, von Eleganz habe ich jedenfalls nichts gesehen. Ich weiß auch nicht, wo die 70 m² herkommen sollen, hat man da die - in der Tat sehr große - Dachterrasse mitgezählt? Aber da hält man sich nur auf, wenn einem der Lärm nichts ausmacht, zum einen vom Straßenverkehr und zum zweiten von den Restaurants, die abends - besonders am Wochenende - so richtig loslegen mit lauter Musik (die aber irgendwann spät in der Nacht auch wieder aufhört). Die Sitzmöbel auf der Terrasse habe ich nicht ausprobiert, die machen einen so morschen Eindruck, ich wollte sie nicht kaputt machen, die Holzstühle allerdings sind in Ordnung. Eine weitere Lärmquelle sind die Katzen, die sich wohl nachts auf dem Dach so richtig kloppen, also etwa 2 m über den sehr bequemen Betten im Schlafzimmer, das erlebt man zu Hause ja auch nicht jeden Tag. Satellitenfernsehen ist vorhanden, es gibt aber - wie in alten Zeiten - nur ARD und ZDF, ansonsten nur RAI 1, 2, 3 und diverse arabische Sender und ähnliches, jedenfalls nichts deutschsprachiges.
Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, der Abfall wird von den Vermietern regelmäßig abgeholt. Das Toilettenpapier wird in einem Eimer gesammelt, wird also nicht mit runtergespült, das scheint in der Türkei so üblich zu sein. Es wird aber auch von den Vermietern beseitigt.
Die Heizung funktioniert einwandfrei, es wird blitzartig warm, zu frieren braucht niemand.
Beim Duschen setzt man das ganze Badezimmer unter Wasser, das lässt sich auch nicht verhindern, denn der Abfluss liegt in der Ecke gegenüber.
Die Vermieter sind sehr, sehr nett, so etwas freundliches habe ich bisher noch nicht erlebt. Wie bekamen einen kleinen Plan und eine kleine "Stadtführung" durch die nähere Umgebung, nochmals herzlichen Dank, Aydin. Wir hätten sie auch jederzeit - auch nachts - noch ansprechen dürfen, falls es Probleme gab (es gab aber keine).

A centrally located but quiet apartment where we felt immediately at home and where we could tune in to the great history and impressive sights of the city of Istanbul. Although the shower might admit improvements, we definitely recommend both this apartment and our host who gave us useful advice, directions and illuminating perspectives.

It was a great week in Istanbul! The flat was excellent, everything was there.
We really enjoyed the time there. The location of the flat is quite central. You can walk around the district of Beyoglu. Small streets with different shops in the neighborhood. Directly over the street there is a grocery store were you can buy what you need. The next station is a 5 min walk away, it is "Tophane".
Aydin is great, before we've arrived he wrote a despription how to come to his home, there was no problem at all to come via puplic transportation from the airport Atatürk to this flat. We bought a "istanbul card", and drove everything via public transportation.

I can really recommend the flat and the host of the flat!!

Warm apartment (as temperature as well as atmosphere), located in a very good location, walk distance to Tophane Tram Station (T1 - 10 mins to Sultanahmet) and to İstiklal Caddesi. Also pubs and restaurants are near the building.
No noise during the night

Apartment is big and perfect for resting after a day spent visiting Istanbul

Aydin is very friendly. Before our arrival he answered in short time to our mails and -when we arrived there- he spent quite one hour explaining us the location, what to visit and where we could find good restaurant and cafe.

If back to Istanbul, I'll book again the same apartment!

Aydın was a very kind host who is always ready to help. Right at the beginning of our stay he gave us a nice tour through the streets to cafes, bars and shops in the surroundings of our apartment. We were happy to visit some of these during the next days.

The apartment is clean and spacious so that it's easy to relax and feel comfortable. We particularly liked the rooftop terrace where you can "feel" the city life in the evenings in a good atmosphere. This accomodation can't be better located. It's right in Beyoğlu, a lively part of Istanbul. Also, the main sights are not far away and easy to access via city train.

We are happy to come back one day and to stay in this apartment once again if it's available. ;-)

We loved our stay with Aydin and Esra, and Istanbul is a beautiful city. The apartment is in a lovely area of Istanbul, and the metro is nearby to take tourists to the main attractions (e.g. Blue Mosque). In particular we enjoyed the food recommendations from Aydin, we tried most of them and loved it. One of our favourite food was actually the place around the corner from the flat. The flat itself was very clean and tastily decorated, just sweet. If we return to Istanbul we sure to stay with them again!

Good day everybody, Aydin and his lovely wife are excellent hosts and provide a perfectly appointed apartment in the middle of Beyoglu. In the kitchen you can easily prepare all your meals, it's just all there. Even questions on a board or a hair dryer was done without any problems. The introduction tour in the neighborhood has given us a first impression and was very valuable, easy also where you can go shopping or fine dining are found for the first two days. The apartment with great terrace has given us a great start to the wonderful world of Istanbul every day and we'll be back. For small children, but the patio is a little dangerous because the wall is very low. Aydin wanted to change this in the near future. Greeting Frank Balensiefer

We had wonderful days in Istanbul. Aydin gave us a very nice and presented to us on a little walk the immediate area. It was not too far to Taksim Square and we have seen the many young people who were demonstrating for their freedom rights - peacefully! The clashes happened at night and we were never threatened them. Even in the immediate vicinity of the place we felt nothing of the protests. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed breakfast on the large terrace. The apartment is nicely furnished and there was nothing missing! All the major attractions can be reached from there well and in the distance you can eat well, some with stunning views over the city!. The farewell difficult for us!
