Duran Apart has a great location. Few minute walk from Aya Sophia, Blue mosque, Topkapi palace, ferries to the Asian side, spice market, Grand Bazar.....Restaurants in small streets around the apartments are good and cheap. Rooms are clean and big enough. The owner is great. Very kind and always ready to help you.

Stayed for 3 nights while touring Turkey with my family. It was a relief to find an apartment in the middle of Istanbul where we could relax between sight seeing expeditions.
