“Idyllic retreat in the heart of 'real' Istanbul”

We stayed in the top loft room (Galata Tower) of the Heirloom Istanbul for 4 days in Jan 2013. It was a fantastic stay! The building (located on a small backstreet, but only minutes walk from many shops and restaurants) has been beautifully restored in a tasteful manor reflecting the history of the property with great wood work throughout. The bath and kitchen are were immaculately clean and well maintained, the bed was very comfortable, and staff are very friendly and eager to make your stay perfect. The amazing top floor view of the Galata tower and old Istanbul were a real highlight. Highly recommend for anyone who want to feel like a local during a stay in Istanbul!

“A truly memorable stay in Istanbul”

My two friends and I traveled to Istanbul in October 2012 and were fortunate enough to stay at the Heirloom. What a very special place! Our one-bedroom apartment was gorgeous and charming. The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed. The owner, Dilek, was so caring and thoughtful, and it was a joy getting to know her. I can't recommend the Heirloom enough!

At the begin of october we had a trip to Istanbul. We stayed in Heirloom Istanbul for 4 days and it was very nice. The handcrafted wood mobiliar amd the ecological ideas, the lovely details and modern comfort of the apartment built a harmonical atmosphaire. We could visit the highlights of the city by feet and the famous Istiklal caddesi was only 5 minutes by feet. Living in such beautful suite in a hectically city was a phenomenal luxus.

“lovingly restored owned. Very good location for pedestrians”

Very good location, very quiet even with open windows at night and yet only a few minutes walking distance from Taksim Square and Istiklal Street. Excellent, if you prefer a family-like atmosphere in an authentic old-Istanbul environment. Mrs Delik and her staff are very friendly and helpful. Turkish breakfast in the small patio is an experience of its own with the house speciality "Siphon Coffee".
Hotel Heirloom is somewhat hidden and not easy to find – even Taxi drivers don't know it! Be prepared to climb stairs – but it's worth the effort!
