The 50m2 apartment is situated in a very central, easily accessible and yet rather calm part of Cihangir. It is at the 5th floor and receives amazing sunlight throughout the day. You have some sea view near the Topkapi Palace area, historical peninsula and it receives light from 3 directions, a constant contact with the sky making you feel you are living together with gods. A rather big balcony will make your breakfast a pleasure with the old-city view facing torre di Galata, St.Antuan and Lycee Galatasaray. Besides a comfortable bedroom with a queen size bed, a big sofa is placed in the neatly furnished living room area which can actually allow up to 3-4 guests to stay in the apartment. The way I designed the apartment is there are no walls except for the bathroom one, so you get this chunk of space with equal brightness everywhere. Additionally the apartment consists of a well equipped kitchen area, a bathroom where you can look outside to the city while at shower with all the discretion. I put an old untuned piano in one corner in order to make a couple of notes every now and then to resonate the space with good vibes.
It is 3 min. to tophane tram station; 5 min. to istiklal street and 10 min. to taksim square. Galata Bridge over the Golden Horn and Karaköy district is just down the hill and 10 min. walking distance. So it is actually very convenient for both doing the old city tourist visits and going out to bars, cafes, nice restaurants and clubs at night. I have a bag full of recommendations list for you.

apartment with a view of almost 360 degrees ... really the profile of mosques Sulthanamet to the Galata Tower and Taksim Hill; strategic proximity to restaurants and clubs of Beyoglu but ... the value is too high: often a strong smell coming from the bathroom to the sewer, the kitchen was not usable because the dishes seemed to be a bit 'stale and handouts containing foods apparently abandoned for too long thus giving the idea of ​​a home not inhabited but not too welcoming to tourists. We are sorry ... the house would need a freshen up for that price! thanks Luciana and Mirko (we're not picky ... but, then again, at that price we expected more!)

Apartment very well located, very nice, close to cultural sites to visit, including the Museum of Innocence Orhan Pamuk, very quiet despite the vibrant, beautiful view from the balcony and stunning views, panoramic, from the terrace dessus.Luminosité and clear, well-organized space. The host was not present but had left three pages of explanation very detailed, helpful and friendly stay.
Small flats: 5 floors but is notified and it is not so difficult. Decoration défraichie compared to photographs of the site. No wardrobe and furniture for our belongings. The access to the terrace is acrobatic.
Nevertheless, we recommend that address.

The flat is really nice, with a lovely view in a lively area of town. It was very hot while we were staying in Istanbul, but we almost never had to use the AC because the windows provided enough draught to keep the temperature low enough.

The building was very quiet (though the street could be slightly noisy at night), so, either the neighbours were away on holidays or the soundproofing was OK!

The five storeys mean that you will have to use your memory so as not to forget anything on your way up: one more good point for the flat!

Our host was not in Turkey when we arrived but was very readily available on the phone to settle the last minute details.

Warmly recommended!

Bel appartement, jolie vue, balcon agréable dans un quartier très vivant. Il faisait très chaud pendant notre séjour à Istanbul, mais nous n'avons presque jamais eu à utiliser la climatisation: les grandes fenêtres permettaient un courant d'air suffisant pour maintenir une température agréable.

L'immeuble était très peu bruyant (la rue, en revanche, pouvait être assez passante la nuit) donc, soit tous les voisins étaient en vacances, soit l'immeuble est raisonnablement bien insonorisé.

Dernier avantage : les cinq étages vous obligent à faire fonctionner votre mémoire : on s'efforce de ne rien oublier avant de retourner à l'appartement!

Notre hôte n'était pas en Turquie lors de notre passage, mais demeurait néanmoins très disponible au téléphone pour régler les derniers détails à l'arrivée.

Chaleureusement recommandé!

Cute Studio with Balcony

Really nice studio, very well located in a calm area, but with short ways to the tram (to the old city and anywhere else), to Beyoglu and Taxim (10 minutes walk to istikal street and there are some really great restaurants nearby the studio)! Studio and bathroom were very clean and the balcony is wonderful! We had a great stay in Istanbul. I had just a little contact to Bilgehan, but his brother Gokhan showed us the appartement and gave some tipps for Istanbul (when he gives you the advice to the best simit in town - follow it. best simit ever!). One thing you should know: there is no door between the bedroom and the living room (this is also shown in the picture). but if that is no problem for you, I can highly recommend this studio (and the bakery) as well :) Thanks, Bilgehan an Gokhan!!
