From there, the tramway goes directly to the historical area of Sultanahmet, where you will find the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia and other famous places.
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…

Reviews for this host's other properties
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.
Avis negatif. Nous avons une reclamation en cours et une demande de remboursement pour les 2 nuits que nous n avons pas utilisé.
La chambre qui nous a été donnée n avait absolument rien a voir avec notre réservation. Hadan nous a dit avoir des problèmes d eau mais ne s est surtout pas exvusee ,au contraire elle nous a dit que ce qu elle nous proposait était pmus chère mais qu elle ne nous demandait rien
ul est facile de prendte le voyageur de cours qd il est crevé et ne va pas en plus reprendre son baton de pelerin pour répartir en recherche
L apothéose etait la situation tres bruyante et que comme l fenêtre etait cassée on ne pouvait pas fermé. Nous avons
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!
les points positifs : l'appartement est très bien situé, à proximité de cafés, petits commerces, restaurants, tramway. les chambres sont belles et confortables. la vue depuis la terrasse est très belle.
les points négatifs : la salle de bain sentait mauvais. il n'y a pas de living room pour 6 ou 8 personnes ce qui ne pose pas de problème quand il fait beau car il est possible d'aller sur la terrasse. mais quand il pleut, cela peut poser problème.
the flat was in an amazing location and Handan was very nice and very detailed with everything.
We were 8 and we in an apartment with 4 rooms so it was ok, but I imagine being in one room sharing with other people might not be very comfortable as there is only one bathroom.
The rooftop was perfect and we had all the facilities around. Very happy, I recommend it.
We had a very good stay in Istanbul for several reasons. One of them was the pleasant stay in our room, situated in a nice part of istanbul in walking distance of everything you want so see. The room is nice and comfortable and if you enjoy the noises of the city which fells a sleep and wakes up again, it's the place to stay. You have to share the toilet and shower, but this was no problem because is was very clean. Breakfast is not included but you can take it within 100 meters around (and it's very cheap). We can recommend the kiosk downhill with fresh juices and tasty tosties. Next time we would go there again.
Handan's apartment wasn't what we expected. The entire building is rented out for guests on Airbnb or something similar. Feels a lot like a hostel as there are about 10 bedroom/apartments that are able to be rented at any time. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment, which had no living/kitchen area, and had a toilet/bathroom that was very smelly. We also arrived, and two their guests had their belongings in inside our apartment. Was not private at all. If your looking for a nice private apartment setting this is not for you. Other than that location was great, and rooftop terrace was lovely.
