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…

Spacious room in a beautifully renovated apartment with a really nice, helpful and easy-going host; the location is brilliant just below Galata tower. Shared bathroom, so it may take some time for everyone to get ready to explore beautiful Istanbul :), but it's definitely a good place to stay and I recommend it!
The situation is perfect for an Istanbul visit especially with the tram being very close. Galata is a very lively place. We enjoyed the marvellous roof terrace. The room was extremly simple and the kitchen did not invite to be used. The ground floor room was dark during day and bright in the night due to light in the street.
The room is very nice, comfortable and clean.
The roof terrace offers stunning views of Istanbul. The area is quiet and close to the Galata Tower.
The only downside is the bathroom which is very damp and musty.
La chambre est très agréable, confortable et propre.
La terrasse sur le toit offre une vue splendide sur Istanbul. Le quartier est calme et proche de la Galata Tower.
Le seul petit bémol est la salle de bain qui est très humide et sent le renfermé.
We were a group of 9 people and we are happy about our holiday in Istanbul. The apartment is spacious and suitable for a group of young people.
Thank you Handan for this nice trip
Dear Handan. Our room was good, but you cannot claim that it was bright. A wall a few meters in front of the windows was not attractive. The room and the kitchen / bathroom is lacking hooks to hang towels etc. and more lamps /bulps. Generally the 'kitchen' need a little more organising and improvements. Of course we enjoyed the terrases on top of the house.
We had a great time in Istanbul!
Really nice view. Small room. But because we where the only people in the whole apartment everything was fine. If all rooms are occupied there´s maybe a problem because there is only one shower + toilet.
Apartment is perfectly located, in a cool district. got the best room with best view.
stairhouse is a bit shabby, but i did not care.
rooms , kitchen, bathroom, toilet was tidy.
i realy can recomend!!

Handan was a very nice host, open for all queries and questions. We could use the kitchen (refrigerator, stove, plates), in fact everything was there to make your own meal if you wanted to. Every once in a while we took breakfast on the rooftop with an exciting view over the city, and a range of international guests: from Canada, the US, France, Italy, Spain, Germany. Nice talks! We had the room with the Bosporus view, a little too small for two people, but Handan has other and bigger rooms too. On the other side we had the chance to take breakfast on the small balcony with this fascinating view of the strait.
Impressive view, best location. At most, one should not put high demands in terms of heating and comfort. Scenig rather than luxurious, radiant heaters in continuous operation, but not really warm. In the summer, but no matter. Since we were alone in the Cur With 4 double bedrooms, has served us a small bathroom and the kitchen. If it had been full, I treasure, that there were traffic jams and even less sleep rest, floorboards squeak .... But location and views, as same from Galata Tower, from the. Towels and sheets clean. Very nice support, WiFi, went entrance / stairwell is a bit creepy and dark site. We liked not disturbed.
Eindrucksvoller Blick, beste Lage. Allenfalls darf man nicht zu hohe Ansprüche stellen, was Heizung und Komfort angeht. Eher scenig, als luxuriös, Heizstrahler dauernd in Betrieb, aber dennoch nicht richtig warm. Im Sommer aber egal. Da wir alleine waren in der Whg. Mit 4 Doppelzimmern, hat uns das kleine Bad und die Küche gereicht. Wäre es voll gewesen, schátze ich, dass es Stau gegeben hätte und auch weniger Schlafruhe, dielen quitschen....
Aber Lage und Blick, wie vom Galataturm, gleichen das aus. Handtücher und Bettwäsche sauber. Sehr nette Betreuung, Wlan ging, Eingang/Treppenhaus ist etwas gruselig, dunkel und Baustelle. Uns hats nicht gestört.
