Meet HORIZON, our cozy and comfortable terrace penthouse with full view of the sea and the Bosphorus Straits in the exclusive Cihangir quarter of Istanbul near Taksim Square, the very heart of the city.

HORIZON offers easy access to sights of interest in Istanbul. The main square Taksim is within a five-minute walking distance, allowing guests to stroll down the main street Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Boulevard) full of shops, eateries, cafes and bars. Or take the nosgaltic ancient Taksim-Tunel tram.

HORIZON is also within five minute walk, downhill, to the Bosphorus Straits, where guests could board the modern tram at Findikli for a 10-minute ride to visit city landmarks such as the Topkapi and Santa Sophia Museums, the Blue Mosque, the Covered Bazaar and others in the Sultanahmet District. Or, from Kabatas down the hill, take a five-minute ferry to the Asian side --or a longer one to Istanbul's romantic and histroric Princess Islands.

The penthouse is fully and tasefully furnished and include all amenities such as washing machine, fridge, oven, all kitchen utensils (plates, pots and pans, glasses, cutlery, toaster etc.) as well as towels, sheets, access to global TV channels and reliable Internet connection. It has air conditioning for cooling or heating, as necessary.

HORIZON is a top-floor penthouse apartment with a huge 30 square-meter terrace for outdoor enjoyment. Indoors, it offers a sleeping-living area, one separate seaview area, kitchen and bath. It could accommodate four or, if needed, five guests.

Our guests often remark that they find HORIZON fits all their needs and desires with unbeatable view of the Bosphorus Straits, well furnished with all amenities --and in a prime location of Istanbul.

Cihangir is a much sought-after quarter of Istanbul, vibrant with plenty of restaurants and bistros.

The accommodation is at Baskurt Street, a quaint and quiet one chosen as the Best Kept Street in Cihangir, lit with romantic lights at nights.

We welcome your queries in hopes of having the pleasure of hosting you during your stay in Istanbul.

Once with us, we take pride in supplying, as requested, advice and suggestions on what to do and how in Istanbul, based on our knowledge and experience of the vast and fascinating city.

Jederzeit gerne wieder...
die Wohnung erfüllt genau das, was Ilhan in seiner Beschreibung beschreibt.
Die Dachterasse ist perfekt und man vergisst schnell, das man 5 Stockwerke erklimmen muss, um sie zu erreichen :)

Die Wohnung selbst ist einfach, jedoch absolut zweckmässig ausgerstatt. Ihre Lage perfekt. Taksimplatz in gut 10 Minuten zu erreichen und somit ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt, um die Stadt zu entdecken.

Ilhan ist ein freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber.

wir waren zu dritt im März in Istanbul bei Ilhan,die Wohnung war grossartig,wir fühlten uns wie echte Türken,alles war sehr sauber und die Aussicht einfach toll,es gab sogar Trinkwasser aus dem Wassertank.Ilhan ist sehr nett,obwohl er so lange auf uns warten mußte,die Anreise vom Flughafen war sehr langwierig und das mit der Istanbulcard etwas schwierig,unbedingt Kleingeld mitnehmen,der Automat nimmt nur kleine Scheine!Die Wohnung war nur sehr schwer zu finden,die Einheimischen schickten uns im Kreis herum,haben uns nach 3 Tagen wieder verirrt,es war sehr abenteuerlich.Ach ja,bis zur Wohnungstür sind es 86 Stufen,das ist der einzige Minuspunkt.Heuer geht's nach Lissabon,wieder mit Wimdu.

Die Wohnung, in ausgezeichneter Lage gelegen, war top ausgestattet und hatte alles was man so braucht, vom Badezimmer bis zur Küche (Öl,Gewürze,...). Auch einen XXL Wand - Stadtplan und einen Istanbul Reiseführer gab es im Apartment. Die Aussicht auf Istanbul war, dank der Panorama Fenster und dem tollen Balkon / der Dachterrasse, fantastisch! Nur fit sollte man sein, da die im 5. Stock (ohne Aufzug) gelegene Wohnung auf einem der vielen Hügel in Istanbul liegt. ;)
Insgesamt war unser Aufenthalt wirklich großartig und die Wohnung ist auf jedenfall weiter zu empfehlen!

Dear Ilhan,
stay in your apartment was absolutely perfect. A very good equipment of the apartment as well as a wonderful view have made the day a success for you. The central location was great. They were very accommodating as hosts. For our heartfelt thanks.
Two small notes:
To contact locally it would be good to get the phone number with area code, because we had some failures and only the taxi driver had to help.
For people over 185 cm, the apartment is quite flat. I had to go mostly hunched with my 192 cm.
Overall, the apartment is highly recommended.
Thank you
