A note about the renovation : The buildings of this historical neighborhood of Galata date from the end of the 18th century. Our flats were renovated by craftsmen using the finest traditional methods. They kept the old stones of walls and, under about twenty coats of paint, they discovered wonderful ancient patterns on the ceilings…

From travelers we require 20 Euros of caution money in case there is some damage to the place, for example a lost key etc. but the money is of course given back at the leaving if there are no problems.

The apartment is very centrally located. The interior was zwegsmässig and well equipped. Unfortunately, not everything was perfect. The cleanliness of the apartment was very bad. The bathroom may have been cleaned for the last time months ago. The roof terrace is absolutely the best. It has a view of the most beautiful places in Istanbul. Conclusion:. Yeah! Apartment is cheap, but very dirty. There were cockroaches and that bothered us. For one or two days bearable, but I would no longer want to stay in this apartment. It was, in my opinion, is no legal angemelgete Guesthouse. No marked fire exits, fire extinguishers seen any. More of a black market business.
Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral gelegen. Das Interior war zwegsmässig und gut ausgestattet. Leider war nicht alles perfekt. Die Sauberkeit in der Wohnung war sehr schlecht. Das Bad wurde möglicherweise vor Monaten zum letztes Mal gereinigt. Die Dachterrase ist absolut das beste. Man hat ein Blick über die schönsten Plätze in Istanbul. Fazit.: Ja! Wohnung ist günstig , aber sehr schmutzig. Es gab Kakerlaken und das hat uns gestört. Für ein, zwei tagen gut erträglich, aber ich würde nicht länger in dieser Wohnung bleiben wollen. Es war meiner Meinung nach, auch keine gesetzlich angemelgete Guesthouse. Keine Notausgänge gekennzeichnet, keine Feuerlöscher gesehen. Eher eine Schwarzmarktgeschäft.
Because the rooms in this house were full Tamuna gave us a room in the opposite building. Advantage was the wonderful terrace with a fantastic view over the Bosporus. Our room had a nice view and the bed was good. For the rest we had the same experience as Eddy. A lot of small technical problems that could have been solved easily and rooms that could be cleaned better. It was disappointing that Tamuna did not react on our complaints.
Conclusion: very nice apartments, super location but it is disappointing that you have to accept the disadvantages of “authentic” rooms ….
Very nice apartment with beautiful rustic renovation. Beds were good with clean linen. Terrace with a fantastic view. Very close to all important places.
Furniture was in bad condition (broken doors of cupboard, the small table in the bigger bedroom had only three of four legs!). The rooms were not very clean (dust in and on furniture and very old/dirty rugs). The Kitchen is very small and was also dirty. Dirty shower and closet. Towel holder and toilet paper holder were damaged. The broken shower head sprayed water out of all possible holes and its bracket was also damaged.
One incident was very disturbing for us. That was when a renter of another apartment came at night and opened our apartment door with his keys and asked us if we have the keys to the roof terrace.
All-in-all it was a nice stay. But for this rental, in my opinion it should be possible to eliminate most of the defects.
the room I booked was not available so I got a bigger doublebed room with a great view on the Galata Tower.
Nice host Tamuna (Thanks again ! ), great shower and fast internet.
What more could a weary traveller want ?
Beautifully restored apartment in good location. Great value for larger groep.Keuken is small, space for up to 3 people. Few dishes. Clean, good beds. Simple douche.Foto's give realistic picture. Beautiful views over the Bosphorus and overlooking the old town. Hallway / stairwell is very necessary to a facelift. Friendly helpfull reception.
Mooi gerestaureerd appartement op goede locatie. Prima adres voor grotere groep.Keuken is klein, ruimte voor max 3 personen. Weinig serviesgoed. Schoon, goede bedden. Eenvoudige douche.Foto's geven realistisch beeld. Prachtig uitzicht over de Bosporus en zicht op de oude stad. Hal/trappenhuis is zeer nodig aan een opknapbeurt toe. Vriendelijke hulpvaardige ontvangst.
A really pleasant few days.
Tamuna met us promptly, provided a beautifully turned out apartment (5 bedrooms, all to ourselves), with Bosphorus views and a roof terrace for eating breakfast and early morning exercises...
Top recommendations also from Tamuna on local fresh fish and a Hammam in north Taksim where we had a round trip in a taxi and a good couple of hours of massage, scrub and unwind for about £20 each.
Things to improve - a lock on the bathroom door!
Very good location nice apartment. Terrace with great views! Nice landlady. Everything went perfectly with her. Overview (left below the photo) but it has two flaws: It only has 4 bedrooms! Not 5 One of them has three chairs and one table, so you can use it as a living room. But if one is to seventh or eight, you have no living room! The 130 square meter also agree not safe. There is a lot smaller. But if you know the: Recommended!
Sehr gut gelegene hübsche Wohnung.
Terrasse mit toller Aussicht!
Vermieterin nett. Alles klappte perfekt mit ihr.
Im Überblick (links unter der Foto) hat es jedoch zwei Fehler:
Es hat nur 4 Schlafzimmer! Nicht 5. Eines davon hat drei Sessel und 1 Tischchen, so kann man es auch als Wohnzimmer benutzen.
Aber wenn man zu siebt oder acht ist, hat man kein Wohnzimmer!
Die 130 Quadratmeter stimmen sicher auch nicht. Es ist einiges kleiner.
Doch wenn man das weiss: Empfehlenswert !
We had a nice stay in the room with nice window over Bosporen.
Comfortable accommodation in the town center. Perfectly. Friendly and helpful owner. Ideal for all in a rustic 200 year old home to find happiness.
Gemütliche Unterkunft inmitten der Stadt. Perfekt gelegen. Freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Ideal für alle die in einer rustikalen 200 Jahre alten Wohnung ihr Glück finden.
