A WHOLE flat right in the heart of the city, in the historical neighborhood of Galata on the European side of Istanbul. 3 double and one single bedrooms with stylish ottoman decoration and a splendid view of Bosphorus sea. Sleeps 10 people.
A living room with a double bed and an extra single bed.
Toilet/bathroom, kitchen, washing machine, hot water included 24h/7, linen and towels provided.
Wireless internet connection provided.

The appartment is located just next to the Galata Tower, an ancient area on the European side of the city. 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 the 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...

Bright room in charming apartment

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.

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

Bright room in charming apartment

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.

Bautiful room with the breathtaking view terrace

Really nice view. Small room. But because we where the only people in the whole apartment everything was fine. If all rooms are occupied there´s maybe a problem because there is only one shower + toilet.

Bautiful room with the breathtaking view terrace

Handan was a very nice host, open for all queries and questions. We could use the kitchen (refrigerator, stove, plates), in fact everything was there to make your own meal if you wanted to. Every once in a while we took breakfast on the rooftop with an exciting view over the city, and a range of international guests: from Canada, the US, France, Italy, Spain, Germany. Nice talks! We had the room with the Bosporus view, a little too small for two people, but Handan has other and bigger rooms too. On the other side we had the chance to take breakfast on the small balcony with this fascinating view of the strait.

Impressive view, best location. At most, one should not put high demands in terms of heating and comfort. Scenig rather than luxurious, radiant heaters in continuous operation, but not really warm. In the summer, but no matter. Since we were alone in the Cur With 4 double bedrooms, has served us a small bathroom and the kitchen. If it had been full, I treasure, that there were traffic jams and even less sleep rest, floorboards squeak .... But location and views, as same from Galata Tower, from the. Towels and sheets clean. Very nice support, WiFi, went entrance / stairwell is a bit creepy and dark site. We liked not disturbed.

Bright room with the view of Galata Tower

Spacious room in a beautifully renovated apartment with a really nice, helpful and easy-going host; the location is brilliant just below Galata tower. Shared bathroom, so it may take some time for everyone to get ready to explore beautiful Istanbul :), but it's definitely a good place to stay and I recommend it!
