Our two roomed apartment on the top floor in a renovated old Greek building located in Elmadağ, a safe and calm neighborhood near Taksim square might be just what you need!

What is unique about our apartment is the historical touch familiar to Istanbul, something we strived to keep while renovating and furnishing. The hard wooden floors, the high ceilings, the high white wooden doors, shutters and the lace curtains will all make you feel the true old Istanbul feeling immediately as you enter. This way, you will be a traveller even resting at home!

The apartment has two rooms and each can be slept. You'll have a double bed and a single sofa bed in the bedroom; a single and a very comfortable IKEA double sofa bed in the living room. So, the apartment has a capacity of six. If your group is larger or you need more rooms, please note that we have two more apartments in the same building.

There is a huge garden on the rear side, to which the apartment owes its silent and cool atmosphere. And thanks to the huge date palm tree in the garden, you will not feel any need for a technological cooling system, but nature will take care of this for you! The living room already has an air conditioner, and if you need one in the bedroom, let me know and I will provide one for you.

You will not have access to the garden, but the branches and the leaves of our beautiful date palm tree touch the windows, creating a sweet smell in the bedroom, something I'm sure you'll love waking up in the mornings. You can easily reach and take those sweet fruits coming from the heaven.

The apartment has all kind of amenities you may need; including refrigerator, French press, stove, kettle in the kitchen; shower, hair dryer, shampoo, soap and toilet paper in the bathroom, TV, satellite receiver and wireless Internet in the living room and clean linens, sheets and towels in the bedrooms. You'll also have access to the combi heater, washing machine, and iron, commonly used by all the three apartments in the building.

The building is located in Harbiye, a calm and safe neighborhood near Taksim square. Hilton Hotel is 3-4 and Taxim square is only within a 10-15 minute walking distance, which (as you should know if you are planning to come to Istanbul) is the artistic and cultural centre of the city with its cafes, restaurants, bars, wine houses, night clubs, theaters and movie theaters. And you can get to Sultanahmet, the historical town within 10-15, and to Bosphorus in 4-5 minutes by taxi. And on the intersecting street called Babil, you can find everything you may need from the markets to butchers, restaurants to bakeries, laundries to buffets.

If you would like to spend your holiday in a place reflecting the culture and history of Istanbul itself, this place is ideal for you.

Hope you'll have a great time in our beloved city!

Historical Spacious House

This place is amazing, close to everything
We enjoyed walking to Taksim area shopping and all great restaurants
The house is located in a very nice neighborhood, small shops and small mini market is all around the house, you don’t really need anything, you can find almost anything your want for the family
Regarding going to attraction and sights, this is best place to walk 10 min to Taksim underground or taxi or buses...
Asli the owner, she is just wonderful she showed us all details of the house, and she was very flexible with our need, she is very prices and right on time and she make sure all details is followed... we were 4 families each arriving at different time and she arranged the transportation for us all on time and with best experience, I highly recommend this place.
The house is well maintained, and you will find everything you want for your stay
Every morning I woke up to go and bring fresh bread and breakfast for the family, within 1 min walk to several mini markets.
If you walk about 6 min you will get to several great restaurants that is open until 2-3 AM , some of them open whole the day , if you like shopping and going to east side it is just 14 min walk and then you get to the underground were you can reach any place you want .
We had wonderful experience with Asli, communication and commitment, she gave us great hospitality
I highly recommend this place, clean, close to all good place, very nice neighborhood, and wonderful owner

Villa at the Heart of Istanbul

Asli's place is perfect. Clean and enough space to relax in the living room. The place is close to Taksim square and to a lot of restaurants and bars within 10 minutes of walking.
Perhaps we will come again.
Thank you very much Asli.

Villa at the Heart of Istanbul

Good location to stay own master during the visit. The house has 3 bedrooms (1x 2 single beds, 1x double bed and 1 double bed in the roof (no separate door). We felt very comfortable with a 5 he group, also because at night dodging the sofa was possible. Smears should bring in the sanitary sector, because the plastic shower is considered the age. Summa, summarum very good place, very close to Taksim square and restaurants (direct path always on the 4 lane road ...

Villa at the Heart of Istanbul

Great stay at Asli´s place and a really good host even though I didn´t get the chance to meet in person.

Asli contacted and welcomed me directly after making the reservation and from there on we had a conversation where I got all answers I needed with very short notice. She could help us with pretty much everything I asked for, a baby cot included, and i felt very confident all the time. We actually got the keys to the house, from the owner of the grocery store cross the street, before leaving the taxi from the airport.

The house is really close to Taksim Square meaning close to various restaurants and shops. We didn't spend that much time in the house but it is has three floors where the middle one is nice and relaxing place to socialize in and the two others contains three bed rooms.

It is a bit noisy at night when sleeping in the bottom floor but Asli has left earplugs for solving that problem.

I would really recommend this place and Asli as your host!

Pink House - Ideal for Big Groups

It was a great time in the pinkhouse. We were there with 17 friends in the white and pinkhouse. Asli brought me a birthday cake and she made the garden beautiful with tables and lamps. We could eat with all of us in the g arden. The appartments were great...clean and modern. They were also close to the center...If you are traveling wirh the transport from the airport the bus stops close to
the appartment at the Taksim square.
So if you want a great time...be at the white or pinkhouse by Asli!!!!
