About the neighborhood
We hope you will fall in love with our wonderful vibrant corner of Istanbul, as so many do when they come! Walk the historical streets. All unique, with so much character, some old, some in need of love and attention and many gloriously restored. On these cobbled streets, once the home of Istanbul's minorities, you'll see ancient Greek, Jewish, and Armenian homes and places of worship. This beautiful area, declared a world heritage sight by UNESCO, wonderful mixture of both traditional residents and newcomers living in their restored houses. The area, though in the heart of the city, has a vibrent “village feel' with its eclectic mixture of cultures, older residents, newcomers and visitors.
