Condo/Apartment
Our apartment is on the 2nd floor of a grand and elegant 19th century building very close to Galata Tower. It's stylish, spacious, graceful and airy, with stunning views right across the Golden Horn from the shared roof terrace a few floors up. 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 second floor - two flights of original marble stairs - of a grand and elegant 19th century building very near to Galata Tower. The building entrance is on a characterful cobbled street, packed with intriguing boutiques and cafés. A few floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has gorgeous views across Golden Horn to the Old City. It's about 3 m...Our apartment is on the 2nd floor of a grand and elegant 19th century building very close to Galata Tower.

It's on the second floor - two flights of original marble stairs - of a grand and elegant 19th century building very near to Galata Tower. The building entrance is on a characterful cobbled street, packed with intriguing boutiques and cafés. A few floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has gorgeous views across Golden Horn to the Old City. It's about 3 minutes walk to Sishane metro station, less than 5 minutes walk to Tünel funicular and a short downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 10 minutes walk up the hill. The three bedrooms are stylish: two doubles and one twin, each with chic velvet headboards and high quality crisp white linens. The bedrooms are arranged around a large central hall with seating and coat storage. The comfortable living room is very spacious and light, with a newly-upholstered vintage sofa and chairs, feather cushions and antique pieces. A double doorway leads into a separate dining room with a large oval dining table and chairs. The kitchen is chic and well-equipped with high-end appliances including dish-washer. The smart shower room is large, with a long marble counter-top and roomy shower. Original dark wooden floorboards give a warm feel and all doors are elegant dark wood originals, adding lots of character. The ceilings are extremely high giving a relaxing sense of space. This apartment is a very big 130 m2 in total, serene and restful with lovely high ceilings and a quiet, solid grace. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people and a seventh/child on a fold-out bed in the living room is possible. 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) 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

This apartment is stunning and closed to everything! The pictures don't make justice to how airy and big the space really is. The terrace has 360 degrees views of beautiful Istanbul. All rooms are big and equipped with very nice beds and linens. The kitchen...More

The location is amazing-- it is right by the Galata Tower and the rooftop terrace has a terrific view of both the Tower and the Istanbul skyline. The apartment was well furnished, clean, and very comfortable. We hope to stay there again in the future!

The location of the apartment is unbeatable. The apartment was clean and tidy, and contained everything needed for a hassle free few days in Istanbul. The view from the rooftop terrace has to be one of the best in the city. The owner, Tarkan, met...More
