I kind of don't want to write this because homage is so fantastic I'd rather no one else knew about it. But clearly the secret is already out! Everything at homage, from the very friendly service, to the beautiful design of the apartment and the sensitive building renovation, to little touches like nice conditioner in the bathroom and cosy blankets and slippers, is perfectly thought through and executed. The location, in the heart of beyoglu and next to the beautiful Armenian church, is gorgeous; we could walk to great bars and restaurants in the same area. I will definitely be back.
