Guestbook comments from the manager
My family and I enjoyed staying in the Galata apartment. It had everything we needed and more: comfortable beds, large living room, combined with dining room, clean bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, and laundry. The hidden surprise was a rooftop patio with the 360 degree view, which we used for our breakfast a few times as well as for a night time relaxation with a glass of wine. The location of this apartment is great. Old town was only 20 min away, and Kabatas ferry (which we used to go to the Princess Islands) within 2 tram stops or only 15 min walk along the coast. There were a few nice markets near the building, and we can see the beginning of the Istikal street right outside of our window. Our host Kadir met us upon our arrival, gave us a tour of the flat and shared quick tips about the neighborhood and the transportation. Apartment also had maps and guides with the sightseeing information. Kadir also arranged our taxi from and to the airport. We had 5 adults and 2 small kids staying in the apartment and everyone had a wonderful time.

UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES...

  • 5 of 5
This Review is 2 Years late and I am so so sorry that it took me so long to do this…
It's better late than never. I have been wanting to write this review and am glad I am finally doing this :-)

We were lucky to discover and book this apartment when we decided to have a family Union in Istanbul back in June of 2012. We had 3 generations of a family meeting here. The location is Fantastic if you really want to be submerged in the Art, Culture, Pulse and every day life in Istanbul.

With the guidance of Kadir (Our contact and Great Host), within a few minutes after arrival, we found all the places we needed to go to for shopping, close to the apartment. The rooftop view of Istanbul is absolutely breathtaking, and gives me Goosebumps even thinking about it. The sounds of call to prayers from the rooftop of this apartment at sunset is something you will never forget, it was a chilling experience every time we heard it. The sounds of City Life, Birds of Galata, Call to Prayers, along with the location and comfort of this elegant and beautiful space in the heart of the magnificent Istanbul will always make me wish to go back to this place.

Thank you Kadir for your wonderful hospitality and support.

FANTASTISCH

  • 5 of 5
Im März waren wir, 2 Paare und 1 Baby in diesem wahnsinnig tollen Apartment.
Wir konnten unser Glück gar nicht fassen, dass es so schön war, die Bilder im Internet geben alles recht authentisch wieder.
Da wir 1 Baby dabei hatten, waren wir "gezwungen", eher viel Zeit daheim zu verbringen, aber gestört hat es uns nicht :)

Die Einrichtung ist top, wir hatten wirklich nichts, woran wir uns gestört hätten. Die Küche war voll funktionsfähig, wir haben viel gekocht, es uns einfach gut gehen lassen, und das war nicht schwer. Übrigens waren die Betten so gut, dass wir die Agentur angerufen udn gefragt haben, was das für Betten seien :)

Als Nachteil könnte empfunden werden, dass die Wohnung im 4. Stock liegt, zugegeben, wir haben auch alle übersehen, dass die Wohnung im 4. Stock liegt, aber dafür hatten wir auch eine grossartige Aussicht, so dass wir ein lachendes und ein weinendes Auge hatten am Ende. Aber in Istanbul ist "oben" scheinbar eh besser, wie sich vielfach herausgestellt hat...

Also ja, wir empfehlen das Ganze sehr gern weiter!! Die Angestellten der Vermietungsagentur waren auch mehrsprachig und sehr sehr professionell, wir konnten sie wirklich löchern mit Fragen, sie waren sehr geduldig mit uns. :)))

Babybett etc. wurde übrigens bereitgestellt, muss man aber vor Anreise klären.

Also wenn man mit mehreren Leuten reist, ist das sicher eine extrem gute Alternative zu den vielen Hotels!! Viel Spass dort!!!

EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented several apartments in different European cities over the last few years, and this property was definitely one of the best. The apartment is really spacious, open and clean - exactly as it appears in the photos. It's tastefully furnished, and was actually featured in a Turkish interior decorating magazine while we were there! There were several nice touches, such as an ipod dock in the living room and an espresso machine in the kitchen. The location is excellent and the views from the rooftop terrace truly amazing. We were really happy with the service Kadir provided and would definitely recommend this place to our friends. The only caveat is that the flat doesn't have a lift and there are quite a few stairs, but it's worth it!

EXCELLENT GALATA APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this spacious and comfortable Istanbul apartment. It is beautifully decorated, clean, and well-appointed. Serdal, the owner's representative, welcomed us, helped us with our baggage, and showed us all of the apartment's features. He was very attentive and responsive to later questions and concerns. The photographs very accurately describe the layout and beauty of the rental. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and modern appliances. The neighborhood was convenient to many restaurants, shops, and tram stops. The only reason this rating is not five stars is that the apartment is on the fourth floor without an elevator. It was manageable, but at the end of a long day of walking in a hilly city, that last climb was a challenge for the two of us in our late sixties.

LOVELY APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely spacious apartment very well located for a holiday in Istanbul. Even with our 2 kids in tow (13 & 10) it was only walking distance to Spice Market, Grand Bazaar, Ayasophia, Blue Mosque, Istiklal Caddesi and Taksim. The apartment is well equipped and extremely clean with Galata Tower almost within arm's reach!

There are some negatives to this apartment. Firstly, the apartment is located on the 4th floor of a walk up. This is no small undertaking with 3 large heavy suitcases and hand luggage. It is also a very noisy location as there is a hostel nearby & everyone seems to stay up until the wee hours. Also, we had no tv as was supposed to be the case as someone removed the cable box on the 2nd day of our 5 day stay. Luckily we all had laptops, ipads, etc but had we not had them, this would have been a major problem with kids.

TRULY PLEASANT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
It is, in fact, a great apartment full of light, good taste and nice details. It is very well equiped and very clean. The pictures show exactly what the apartment is. Besides all that, it is very well located in a very pleasant place, just aside of Galata Tower, near of lots of bars, restaurants and shopping. It was the perfect place to stay in Istambul!

Car: not necessary

Bang in the middle of it all describes the location of this apartment best. It is right in front of the Galata Tower, with unhindered views of the same from the large living room and one of the bedrooms. There are ample grocery shopping and eating out options around Galata Tower. A 250m walk northwards will take you to the southern end of the Istiklal Avenue, Istanbul largest and busiest shopping and entertainment mile. Walking along the Istiklal takes you to the famous Taxim Square. Via a 500m walk southwards from the apartment takes you to the Golden Horn and Galata Bridge, where you have access to the metro and tram, which takes you directly into the historic center of Sultanahmet, where the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Aya Sofia and other sights are located.

To make your stay even more enjoyable and convenient, we offer to organise a variety of popular and bespoke services, i.e. a nostalgic Bosphorus boat trip, special guided tours through the city, a multi-lingual nanny service etc. For relaxation you might want to complement your activities with a massage or a yoga and meditation session, all in the comfort of your CAST accommodation.
