A note about the renovation : The buildings of the historical neighborhood of Galata date from the end of the 18th century. Our flats were renovated by craftsmen using the finest traditional methods.

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 ….

A beautiful room (with possibly the best view in Boyoglu) in a beautiful old recently renovated apartment. From our window we could see the Golden Horn, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the bridge to the Asian side and we could watch the sun rise over the Bosphorous. It is now managed by Tamuna, not Anouk, and she was incredibly helpful and really friendly and responsive. There were a few issues with the water but these were quickly fixed thanks to Tamuna and Adam. The building is located perfectly for reaching virtually all the parts of the city you're likely to want to see. Enjoy!

We chose the room with three windows overlooking the Bosphorus: the view is magical! The room is very pleasantly decorated in a style quite clean, relaxing. Good bedding, linens fresh. Doors a little noisy. Very nice neighborhood, bohemian, around the Galata Tower, still remained fairly pedestrian and authentic stores electricity and equipment D-jaying!

Cozy room in Galata area (Beyoğlu)

The room could be very nice if there were a small shelf or some hook in the wall. From the hall go shower and toilet for a total of 4 double rooms from. The toilet smells strongly. The kitchenette is equipped with a kettle and there are 7-8 cup and 1 glass. A cup full of various cutlery, no tea towel. Once a week the garbage was disposed of. From the roof terrace there is a beautiful view over the city and the Bosphorus. The location of the apartment is 1st class. But to our right at the outset agreed departure time the landlord was not found. So we did not get back our € 20 deposit. Maybe us the money will still be paid? On our request email from home was quickly reacts with the appropriate commitment. Total: Too bad they could be so beautiful, the apartment / room!

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.

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.
