Tamuna is a landlady who you can trust completely. Welcome to the Galata Tower is very simple. The apartment is conveniently located near the Bosphorus, shopping streets, tram, metro etc.. The terrace is beautiful! The room was very clean. I loved to host Tamuna. Trust and enjoy it!

I liked my room a lot. The apartment offers some cooking facilities and a washing machine and WiFi. Shower and toilet are shared with three other rooms within the apartment and are kept exceptionally clean. Depending on the occupants of the other rooms it can probably get a bit noisy but didn't during my stay. The Apartment is situated in an old building with lots of atmosphere and a sitting area on the roof top which offers an unbelievable view of the Bosporus. Liked it very much. Tamuna was an accommodating and helpful hostess and very friendly. Highly recommended.

Authentic Room near Galata Tower (11)

Had a nice time in Istanbul, people are very nice and very friendly. The area of of Galata Towers has a lot to offer and is close to the main shopping streets.
As to Authentic Room don't go by any pictures you see on this web site it has no resemblance to the picture. The room we stayed in was cold most of the time, the room is also to small with very little cupboards to put anything or even sit down as there was only one chair other than the bed.
If you are staying for 2 to 3 nights you could put up with it but we stayed for longer so was an inconvenience.
They also owed me one days fee which was charged, and was told that it would be given to me in cash when I arrived not the case.
I did ask when I left, but the guy I was speaking to wasn't helpful.
Would I stay there again No

Cosy Room in the Heart of İstanbul (4)

Nice style of the flat with the brickwalls, which is located in cosy and trendy Tünel quarter nearby Galata tower. We liked the quarter very much. When it is cold outside than be prepared, it is cold in the flat also, but at least hot shower is working ;-) I would recommend the flat to people who have no problems with smoking in it. Only to ask for a doublebed is not enough I experienced, I would recommend to ask for the real size. There is at least one bed with approximately 1,2m wideness which in my opinion is not sufficient for two persons and far away to be called and offered as doublebed. I tried hard it but sufferd with my 1,9m bodyheight three nights before we could change to another nicer room with a real doublebed. The by some people described scary stairway was no problem for us. But indeed, it´s not a villa style. The other visitors of the rooms in the flat were kindly and open minded people as we hoped to meet.

Authentic Room near Galata Tower (11)

Tamuna and Adem were the best hosts that you could imagine. We really enjoyed our stay in a great historical building. The room and the bathroom were really clean. The apartment itself is not only clean but decorated with so much love which you can see in all the details. Even though the building is in a very central location it is quiet at night so you get to sleep. And during the day you have the best possible location to go to all the sightseeing spots (e.g. Taksim, Istiklal 10 minutes walking distance). There are small supermarkets nearby, also restaurants and cafés. At night time you can go out on Istiklal where you have bars, clubs and restaurants - something for everybody. Istanbul alone is one of the most beautiful and special cities in the world, but staying in such a great "home" and having hosts who welcomed us like friends made our trip even more special. Thanks to Tamuna and Adem, we will definitely come back :o)

Apartment with Bosphorus View Terrace

The appartemnet is well situated. Close to the old town.
The view from de terrace on the roof is top!

The rooms are minimal but ok. The only (little) table had only 3 legs instead of 4.
The kitchen was dirty and there were not enough plates and mugs for 6 persons.
The cookware was dirty, incomplete or broke.

The shower has good and enough hot water. Shower was not clean. The showerstand was broke.

Toilet oke but when we arrived there was a very smelly and dirty bucket with old dirty water in it.

The terrace makes the appartment worth to go back to this place.

COSY studio flat in the Galata Tower area

The apartment would gain significantly through a few small repairs. A broken shower holder is as troublesome as a sink from which no water. So you have to brush your teeth every time in the shower. The promised towels there was not even. What a pity! Of course, the low price is a clear argument and the really sensational good location. 10 minute walk down to the Galata Bridge up or 5 minutes to Istiklal. The best for last: Tamuna is an incredibly kind person. She helped us carry the baggage and took care of us until we were back in the taxi. Everything was on time and uncomplicated. Considering the price, the apartment is for people who mainly need a place to sleep with no frills recommended.
