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….

The room could be very nice if there were a small shelf or some hook in the wall. From the hall go shower and toilet for a total of 4 double rooms from. The toilet smells strongly. The kitchenette is equipped with a kettle and there are 7-8 cup and 1 glass. A cup full of various cutlery, no tea towel. Once a week the garbage was disposed of. From the roof terrace there is a beautiful view over the city and the Bosphorus. The location of the apartment is 1st class. But to our right at the outset agreed departure time the landlord was not found. So we did not get back our € 20 deposit. Maybe us the money will still be paid? On our request email from home was quickly reacts with the appropriate commitment. Total: Too bad they could be so beautiful, the apartment / room!
Das Zimmer könnte sehr schön sein, wenn es eine kleine Ablagefläche gäbe oder einige Haken in der Wand. Vom Flur gehen Dusche und WC für insgesamt 4 DZ Zimmer ab. Das WC riecht streng. Die Küchennische ist mit einem Wasserkocher ausgestattet und es gibt 7-8 Becher und 1 Glas. Ein Becher voll verschiedener Bestecke, kein Küchenhandtuch. Einmal in der Woche wurde der Müll entsorgt. Von der Dachterrasse aus gibt es einen schönen Blick über Stadt und Bosporus. Die Lage der Wohnung ist 1. Klasse. Doch zu unserer gleich eingangs verabredeten Abreisezeit war die Vermieterin leider nicht auffindbar. So bekamen wir auch unsere 20 € Kaution nicht zurück. Vielleicht wird uns das Geld noch überwiesen? Auf unsere email Anfrage von zu Hause aus wurde schnell mit entsprechender Zusage reagiert. Insgesamt: Schade, sie könnte so schön sein, die Wohnung/das Zimmer!
great location in a perfect location, including a fantastic roof terrace. Our host was very friendly and hilfsbereit.Ich the apartment can only recommend. When we come to Istanbul again, we will definitely use the apartment again.
tolle Location in perfekter Lage inklusive fantastischer Dachterrasse. Unser Gastgeber war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.Ich kann die Wohnung nur empfehlen. Wenn wir noch mal nach Istanbul kommen werden wir die Wohnung definitiv wieder nehmen.
Unfortunately, you were not in Istanbul but it worked My bathroom was clean and expedient The large terrace was super great and I spent a pleasant hour with marvelous views of the Galataturm.Es friend Was a Quiet cozy neighborhood and real Türkisch.Zum everything.
Du warst leider nicht in Istambul aber es hat alles geklappt Mein bad war sauber und Zweckmäßig Die grosse Terasse war super toll und ich verbrachte gemütliche stunden mit Wunderbaren Blick auf dem Galataturm.Es War ein Ruhiges gemütliches Quartier und echt Türkisch.Zum weiterempfehlen .
Nice style of the flat with the brickwalls, which is located in cosy and trendy Tünel quarter nearby Galata tower. We liked the quarter very much. When it is cold outside than be prepared, it is cold in the flat also, but at least hot shower is working ;-) I would recommend the flat to people who have no problems with smoking in it. Only to ask for a doublebed is not enough I experienced, I would recommend to ask for the real size. There is at least one bed with approximately 1,2m wideness which in my opinion is not sufficient for two persons and far away to be called and offered as doublebed. I tried hard it but sufferd with my 1,9m bodyheight three nights before we could change to another nicer room with a real doublebed. The by some people described scary stairway was no problem for us. But indeed, it´s not a villa style. The other visitors of the rooms in the flat were kindly and open minded people as we hoped to meet.
The appartemnet is well situated. Close to the old town.
The view from de terrace on the roof is top!
The rooms are minimal but ok. The only (little) table had only 3 legs instead of 4.
The kitchen was dirty and there were not enough plates and mugs for 6 persons.
The cookware was dirty, incomplete or broke.
The shower has good and enough hot water. Shower was not clean. The showerstand was broke.
Toilet oke but when we arrived there was a very smelly and dirty bucket with old dirty water in it.
The terrace makes the appartment worth to go back to this place.
The apartment would gain significantly through a few small repairs. A broken shower holder is as troublesome as a sink from which no water. So you have to brush your teeth every time in the shower. The promised towels there was not even. What a pity! Of course, the low price is a clear argument and the really sensational good location. 10 minute walk down to the Galata Bridge up or 5 minutes to Istiklal. The best for last: Tamuna is an incredibly kind person. She helped us carry the baggage and took care of us until we were back in the taxi. Everything was on time and uncomplicated. Considering the price, the apartment is for people who mainly need a place to sleep with no frills recommended.
Die Wohnung würde durch ein paar kleine Reparaturen deutlich gewinnen. Ein abgebrochener Brausenhalter ist ebenso lästig, wie ein Waschbecken, aus dem kein Wasser kommt. So muss man jedesmal unter der Dusche Zähne putzen. Die versprochenen Handtücher gab es auch nicht. Schade!
Natürlich ist der günstige Preis ein klares Argument und die wirklich sensationell gute Lage. 10 Minuten zu Fuß runter zur Galatabrücke oder 5 Minuten rauf zur Istiklal. Das beste zum Schluss: Tamuna ist eine unglaublich freundliche Person. Sie half uns beim Tragen des Gepäcks und kümmerte sich um uns, bis wir wieder im Taxi saßen. Alles lief pünktlich und unkompliziert.
In Anbetracht des Preises ist die Wohnung für Leute, die hauptsächlich eine Schlafgelegenheit ohne Schnickschnack brauchen, empfehlenswert.
top view. amazing building. very friendly hosts.
The apartment is very centrally located. The interior was zwegsmässig and well equipped. Unfortunately, not everything was perfect. The cleanliness of the apartment was very bad. The bathroom may have been cleaned for the last time months ago. The roof terrace is absolutely the best. It has a view of the most beautiful places in Istanbul. Conclusion:. Yeah! Apartment is cheap, but very dirty. There were cockroaches and that bothered us. For one or two days bearable, but I would no longer want to stay in this apartment. It was, in my opinion, is no legal angemelgete Guesthouse. No marked fire exits, fire extinguishers seen any. More of a black market business.
Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral gelegen. Das Interior war zwegsmässig und gut ausgestattet. Leider war nicht alles perfekt. Die Sauberkeit in der Wohnung war sehr schlecht. Das Bad wurde möglicherweise vor Monaten zum letztes Mal gereinigt. Die Dachterrase ist absolut das beste. Man hat ein Blick über die schönsten Plätze in Istanbul. Fazit.: Ja! Wohnung ist günstig , aber sehr schmutzig. Es gab Kakerlaken und das hat uns gestört. Für ein, zwei tagen gut erträglich, aber ich würde nicht länger in dieser Wohnung bleiben wollen. Es war meiner Meinung nach, auch keine gesetzlich angemelgete Guesthouse. Keine Notausgänge gekennzeichnet, keine Feuerlöscher gesehen. Eher eine Schwarzmarktgeschäft.
Because the rooms in this house were full Tamuna gave us a room in the opposite building. Advantage was the wonderful terrace with a fantastic view over the Bosporus. Our room had a nice view and the bed was good. For the rest we had the same experience as Eddy. A lot of small technical problems that could have been solved easily and rooms that could be cleaned better. It was disappointing that Tamuna did not react on our complaints.
Conclusion: very nice apartments, super location but it is disappointing that you have to accept the disadvantages of “authentic” rooms ….
Very nice apartment with beautiful rustic renovation. Beds were good with clean linen. Terrace with a fantastic view. Very close to all important places.
Furniture was in bad condition (broken doors of cupboard, the small table in the bigger bedroom had only three of four legs!). The rooms were not very clean (dust in and on furniture and very old/dirty rugs). The Kitchen is very small and was also dirty. Dirty shower and closet. Towel holder and toilet paper holder were damaged. The broken shower head sprayed water out of all possible holes and its bracket was also damaged.
One incident was very disturbing for us. That was when a renter of another apartment came at night and opened our apartment door with his keys and asked us if we have the keys to the roof terrace.
All-in-all it was a nice stay. But for this rental, in my opinion it should be possible to eliminate most of the defects.
