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. They kept the old stones of walls and, under about twenty coats of paint, they discovered wonderful ancient patterns on the ceilings.

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!

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.
