Istanbul
Shah Place II is one of Istanbul Place Apartments' sensitive restoration projects. It's on the first floor - one flight of original marble stairs - of a grand and elegant 19th century building close to Galata Tower. The street below the apartment is atmospheric with small, trendy boutiques and cafe-restaurants, yet is quiet and residential at night. Galata's pedestrianised area is just around the corner with its lively pavement cafes and restaurants plus all the buzz of this bohemian district.

The apartment building is only 2 minutes walk from Sishane metro station, 1 minute walk from Tünel funicular and a downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 5 minutes walk up the hill.

The bedrooms are stylish: one double and one twin, each with chic velvet headboards and high quality c...

This apartment is incredible for several reasons: firstly the hosts work so hard to make sure your stay is perfect. They have furnished the apartment in a very stylish way and have provided top quality fixtures and furnishings. They provided a list of very good restaurants, cafes and lokantas for breakfast, quick bites and dinner. They also went out of...

Don't be deceive by the dirty entrance, with trash on the hall way and old unpainted walls, once you get in the apartment, it is actually nice and clean, one of the windows has a small view to a cafe alley. Close enough to galata tower even though the apartment itself has no views at all. Missing some basics but...

About the neighborhood
We understand the importance of location and this is why our apartments are in Galata.

Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner. No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.

Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a couple of minutes’ walk away. 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)...
