One of them is Mihrimah Sultan Camii which is under constraction yet will be ready soon. It is a district that has very active, fast seaway transportation to European side, 7 days, 15 hours a day. Uskudar has a little Carsi (market area), fish market, food market and also every Friday a big portable market ( a little bet of everything, food, clothes, fabric)takes a place.

There is also a flea market with all interesting pieces near by this area. From my area to go to KADIKOY which is another close by district (only 20min by minivan) with lots of activities and a beautiful unique food, fish market, restaurants, cafes, night live...etc


ABOUT MY LOCATION

The location suits the people who is studying, working in both side, either European or Asian side...
Very quiet , friendly area. Kuzguncuk is one of the oldest and original location in Istanbul.. It is a historical and green neighborhood. Population in the area is a mix of Greek, Armenian, Turkish, Jewish people. They all live with a great harmony and a years of friendship in the same neighborhood.
There is a jewish cemetery, synagogues, churcies and mosques living side by side. It is a great pleasure to have a walk in the valley of Kuzguncuk and have a drink at a little coffee shop. You will also find a very nice, protected wood near by, 10 minutes walk, with an amazing Bosphourus view when you want to have some rest in green!

1 min walk to any grocery or 5 min. walk to major super markets, restaurants etc.. We also have an amazing every Monday and Wednesday local food market very close by. It is easy to get every kind of fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and also home made jam, nuts etc...for very reasonable prices. Besides a dairy farm to get fresh milk and make our own yoghurt...

Also there is a shopping mall only 20 min away by walk for cinema, with lots of different restaurants, cafes, shops if you like...Living in a metropolis, traffic and having a busy life style makes everyone tried. But coming back home, my place, my beautiful, peaceful area and home energize you back immediately...

Also a historical Hamam and Mosque near by called Cinili Hamam and Cinili Camii which famous with their Iznik Blue Tiles (Iznik Cinileri). You will have a change of getting relax and having a real authentic local Hamam experience for a very cheap price!

This is what makes my place special :)

The flat of Figen is very lovely and charming and has a beautiful view over the Bosporus. It is a good point to start any explorations in the asian part of Istanbul and especially in the adjacent neighborhood you will find a lot of sweet cafes and small restaurants to rest and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere.
Figen is a very friendly and helpful person and it was a pleasure to meet her. We had our private room to sleep and the other parts shared Figen with us. It was nice to be in such a homely atmosphere. We liked very much and I can really recommend it.

Figen received us very friendly and warm at her home. We felt very comfortable staying with her. It feels like we gained a new friend. The views from her balcony are just amazing and the neighbourhood is charming. We recommend it very much!

Yes, I remember very much about a figen. She was always itself in your cleanliness, exellent taste regarding home furnishings. But especially she was as a person. Love and respect full and still not played friendly. The room was decorated very fancy. But most of all we were looking over the panorama directly from the window or from the balcony. With kind words and the wonderful views of the Bosphorus we were welcomed after a busy day of sightseeing. Thank you, good friend, yes, even for the insider tips for Istanbul days and nights!!

Room with View of the Asian Side

Our stay with Figen was an absolute delight. Having spent time on the tourist side of Istanbul it was a real pleasure to have such a wonderful host reveal a bit of the true Turkey to us. A great area, wonderful views and friendly people.

Room with View of the Asian Side

In every way I felt comfortable at Figen. Sional is a very friendly, obliging hostess, a better hostess, I could not have. The room was very cozy and clean, the view from the balcony (my favorite place) fantastic. The area is very quiet, almost rural, very green, a rooster crowed in the morning, in the evening, the children were playing on the road, the road to the ferry Üsküdar is within 25 minutes walk and then easily accessible by public bus. By and large, I highly recommend Figens accommodation. I am indebted to her for her warm hospitality. I would not have my first trip to Istanbul can have better.
