Condo/Apartment
This stylish yet homely apartment is on the 1st floor of a historically grand 19th century building not far from Galata Tower. It's spacious, stylish and comfortable. A few floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has views across the Golden Horn. The streets below are a characterful mix of cafe-restaurants, boutiques and residential apartment buildings. 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. One flight of original marble stairs take you up to the apartment and a few more floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has lovely views across the Golden Horn. You're welcome to take your drinks, meals or simply thoughts up there any time.

One flight of original marble stairs take you up to the apartment and a few more floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has lovely views across the Golden Horn. You're welcome to take your drinks, meals or simply thoughts up there any time. The streets below the apartment are atmospheric with small, trendy boutiques and cafe-restaurants, yet are 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 crisp white linens. There's a good sized, well-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances including dish-washer. The bright and spacious dining room is in the centre of the apartment. In the comfortable living room there's a large feather-cushioned sofa, armchair and a bar table with stools overlooking the interesting and authentic streets below. The shower room is a generous size with loo. This apartment is 100m2 in total and well laid-out, with large windows, lovely high ceilings and some frescoes. The exposed floorboards and wooden panelled doors are all original, giving a homely yet stylish atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate four people and a fifth/child on a fold-out bed in the living/dining room is possible. 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

We loved our stay here. The location is fantastic, the unit is great and the caretaker really was helpful. All in all a fabulous spot to explore Istanbul from. We tried quite a few of the recommended restaurants and were never disappointed.

Dear atuerkner, Thank you very much for your review. Water cuts happen from time to time in the whole of Istanbul but municipality is about to finish the renovation of the entire infrastructure in our area. So, hopefully we'll not have any water cuts anymore...More
