Condo/Apartment
Our apartment is on the 3rd floor of an elegant 19th Century building close to Galata Tower, on the most sophisticated street in this bohemian area. It's large, chic, bright and airy with stunning views across the Bosphorus and Golden Horn. We also offer a selection of 'experiences' with our local guides, to help you build your own genuine and memorable perspective on the city. This is one of our sensitive restoration projects. It's on the third floor - three flights of original marble stairs - of a grand and elegant 19th century building near the beautiful Galata Tower. The street is sophisticated, with smart cafes, top Turkish fashion design boutiques and a cool bohemian feel. The apartment is only 1 minute walk from Sishane metro station, 3 minutes walk to Tünel funicular and a short...Our apartment is on the 3rd floor of an elegant 19th Century building close to Galata Tower, on the most sophisticated street in this bohemian area.

It's on the third floor - three flights of original marble stairs - of a grand and elegant 19th century building near the beautiful Galata Tower. The street is sophisticated, with smart cafes, top Turkish fashion design boutiques and a cool bohemian feel. The apartment is only 1 minute walk from Sishane metro station, 3 minutes walk to Tünel funicular and a short downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is around 5 minutes walk up the hill. The bedrooms are stylish: two doubles and one twin, each with designer velvet headboards and high quality crisp white linens. Two of the bedrooms have fabulous views. The kitchen is large, chic and well-equipped with high-end appliances including dish-washer. The dining area has a lovely ceramic tiled floor and leads to the airy hall. The living room is stylish and comfortable with two feather-filled sofas and a bar table area leading to bay windows with fabulous panoramic views across the Bosphorus and Golden Horn. The spacious hall has a smart shower room at one end and a separate loo at the other. Original wooden floorboards give a warm feel and all doors and windows are also elegant originals, adding grace. This apartment is 130 m2 in total, serene and restful. It's flooded with sunlight through its large sash windows and has very high ceilings throughout. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people. Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a few minutes walk away. The famous Istiklal Avenue is around 5 minutes stroll. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 12 minutes by public transport or 20 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 10 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 15 minutes. There are many taxi ranks around and some secure car parks too.More
