This place hides in plain sight in the old City of Istanbul. The place is ancient and amazing, the atmosphere is just from another era, but the hookahs are not perfect for the first timers as they are really strong.

18th century old building, full of character, great vibe, great shisha and the apple tea is to die for! This was my regular evening hangout with friends when visiting Istanbul. Just behind the grand bazaar, if youre in that area, must visit!

You should try for quality hookah and flavored teas. The prices are also affordable. Apple and mint are my favorite.

This time I perceived the place as extremely sleepy, nothing doing in the centre of Istanbul. 95% of the visitors were men sitting around absolutely absent minded. Still, the building was worth the visit, and at least there was a toilet (1tl).

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
