This is my second time staying in the Istanbul Apartments. Right in the center of Taksim, the heart of everything, picked up and dropped off from the airport, 24/7 access to the owners and managers of building. Amazing customer service, clean rooms, etc. etc. Perfect for groups of friends! A MUST STAY!!!!

From the moment my wife and I were picked up at the airport in a van arranged by Istanbul Apartments, every single person we encountered who worked there was extraordinarily friendly, helped in any and every way possible, and generally made us feel comfortable and welcome. The apartment itself was lovely and clean with plenty of storage space. The kitchen... More

Me and my partner spent two weeks in Istanbul and we had a great time! The apartment is beautiful and spacious. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped, which was very convenient. But the best feature is the location! Taksim area is one of the most popular and trendy places in Istanbul.

We had a great time staying in this apartment. It's clean, comfortable, conveniently located, walking distance to many historical attractions, cafes, and pubic transportation. The staff is friendly,very helpful and knowledgeable of the surrounding areas. We'll return every time to this location, as we were treated like family.

Looking at the photos, one would expect a nicer place. Location was fine, the management were very responsive and helpful. But the apt reeked of smoke, the sofa in the living room was very dirty, it's a slip cover, washing it would have made sense, it had absorbed the smell of smoke. The door for one of the bedroom was... More

The guest complained about the smell of smoking and rightfully was very much disturbed. our building is a no smoking one but we have no control of what guests do in their "own homes" Unfortunately we were fully booked and could not offer another apartment. We thrive full satisfaction or your money back, which we did. We are very sorry. More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
