Charming room with Tower View for 2 people in an historical ottoman building in the heart of İstanbul.

Perfectly located in the neighborhood of Galata Tower on the European side of Istanbul, a confortable room with stylish decoration and a view of Galata Tower.
Toilet/bathroom shared between 5 rooms, hot water 24h/7, linen and towels provided.
There is a common open kitchen, a very nice, bright sitting area.
Wireless internet connection provided.

5 mins walk up the street of music shops, is the liveliest street of Istanbul, Istiklal Avenue, which is full of restaurants, cafés, bars, concert venues and art galleries. 5 mins walk down the hill is the Bosphorus, Galata Bridge and Eminonu Spice Bazaar. 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…

Please note that the apartment is on the 4th floor without an elevator.

Très bon accueil de l'hôte, excellente communication. Jolie vue sur Istanbul. Idealement situé .Par contre :
- il faut traverser la rue pour atteindre la terrasse qui est dans un autre bâtiment
- l'ensemble de l'appartement est vétuste (problème d humidité)
- l'état des sols est douteux
- les matelas sont vieux et sales (un sentait très mauvais)
- les fenêtres vibrent au vent et laissent entrer l'air.
- l'intérieur des placards alimentaires est très sales
- les tapis sont crasseux
- le plafond de la salle de bain est auréolé d'humidité
- le bâtiment est très bruyant (rue et voisinage)

Le prix est beaucoup trop cher par rapport à la prestation.

Very welcoming host , excellent communication. Pretty views of Istanbul. Ideally located
against .By :
- You have to cross the road to reach the terrace which is in another building
- The whole apartment is old ( moisture problem )
- soil is dirty
- The mattresses are old and dirty ( one off them smelly )
- Windows rattling in the wind and let in the air.
- Within the food cupboards is very dirty
- The carpets are filthy
- The ceiling of the bathroom is crowned moisture
- The building is very noisy (street and neighborhood)

The price is too expensive compared to the benefit.

Suite for 3,4 with panoramic view

We had a very nice time at the guest house. The views were beautiful and the Bosphorous breeze refreshing, and in a fun location of the city. Our host was very friendly and helped us quickly when we needed it. We were fortunate to be the only guests in the place so it was nice and quiet. In the future if I bring friends for their first time to Istanbul I will look to stay here again.

Whole Flat with the Bosphorus view terrace

Die Bilder geben den Zustand der Wohnung nicht richtig wieder. Die Wohnung für acht Personen besteht aus zwei separaten Wohnungen. In der einen Wohnung gibt es zwei separate Schlafzimmern für vier Personen. In der anderen Wohnung sind die beiden Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett nur durch ein Durchbruch ohne Tür getrennt. Dadurch gibt es keine Privatsphäre.
Die Wohnungen befinden sich im dritten Stock. Die Terrasse mit der kleinen Küchenzeile, in der man nicht kochen kann, befindet sich im vierten Stock. Ein Stock darüber ist die Terrasse mit dem Blick über den Bosporus. Essen muss man also immer außerhalb der Wohnung.
Das reicht gerade dazu aus um Abends noch ein Bier zu trinken und auf das Meer zu schauen.
Die Badezimmer riechen nach Kloake, weil wohl die Siphons nicht richtig eingebaut sind.
Wir hatten ein großes Problem mit Mücken. Mein Freund hatten am Ende der Reise über 30 Mückenstiche.
Da wir schon des Öfteren in Istanbul Urlaub gemacht haben, wissen wir dass es auch bessere Wohnungen gibt.

Cozy room in Galata area

En fait, nous n'avons pas eu la chambre que nous avions réservée. On etait dans la meme rue, immeuble d'en face. Donc pour la localisation, c'etait parfait, comme prevu : c'est tres agreable le soir de profiter de la vie nocture du quartier et de pouvoir rentrer rapidement. Par contre, nous etions dans l'appart des proprietaires, 5 chambres pour 1 salle de bain (au lieu de 2 pour 1 dans celui loué initialement). Pas de terrasse, et une cuisine tres encombrée, le plus souvent avec de la vaisselle sale dans l'evier, pas top. Pour 50€ prestation minimum, suffisant si comme nous vous etes en balade toute la journée, inclus p´tit déj et dîner.

I'll start with the positives are that the availability of Adem host it was very nice and helpful. Also the location of the apartment is very well located between Taksim and the ancient city of Istanbul, we were able to move on foot very easily which made the stay very pleasant. What is the down side is the apartment itself, the shower is too small and poorly laid out, there was no toilet paper or towels, we apply due to the host that has brought next. On both parts it is very small and poorly designed, too, with just two bed sheets too rough making it not just a good night. The fan was broken in half had to find the right position to place and be able to use. Also the cleanliness of the apartment I think they make no effort to clean up after each visitor so he had to clean up first in order to set. I think in terms of price and quality you can find better in Istanbul.

Cozy room, Authentic building

The district Gala tower is ideal for city travelers. We had the current circumstances to another room. Everything was well organized and we were welcomed warmly by the hosts. The room faced the courtyard. The view from the bed was about Gala Tower, Bosphorus and Golden Horn. Sensational. The mattresses were great. The location next to the great transport connections will and interest.

Apartment very well placed for sightseeing and in a quiet street. Welcome. By cons health problem with a leak and a clogged sink! Not much cooking. You have to eat outside which is not a concern in Istanbul!

Double bedroom in the authantic apartment/near galata

Great location, right in the center but still quiet, great views from each of the rooms and the spectacular terrace, warm and helpful hosts (WG-feeling), uncomplicated. At full occupancy bathroom and toilet can be a bit tight, but clean. Open the ideal place for small.
