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.

Großzügig, beeindruckend und wunderschön ..

  • 5 of 5
GALATA TOWER
Wir waren leider nur vier Tage in dieser großzügigen und wundervollen Unterkunft, mitten im Herzen von Istanbul - direkt am Galata Turm. Die Räume sind perfekt aufgeteilt, sodass vier Personen (und mehr) ausreichend Platz finden.
Die Dachterrasse muss unbedingt erwähnt werden - ein Panorama auf die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt. Hier könnte man die "blaue Stunde" erleben... die Zeit bevor die Sonne untergeht.

Die Wohnung ist im Original fast schöner als beschrieben - wir würden Sie jeder Zeit unseren Freunden empfehlen!

Vor allem beeindruckt war ich aber von der herzlichen Gastfreundschaft unseres Gastgebers. Ich fühlte mich wie bei Freunden zu Hause so freundschaftlich war die Begrüßung.
Vielen Dank nochmal und weiterhin viel Erfolg!
Istanbul ist sehr gastfreundlich und einfach traumhaft wenn man sich darauf einlässt - bei Tag & Nacht!
Also los & viel Spaß! ;-)

Great position in design conscious apartment

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of six, two couples and two 20 something daughters. The apartment worked very well for us with plenty of space for 6 people and great kitchen and laundry facitilites. The only downside was the 5 flights of stairs (no lift) which was sometimes a struggle after a day out. The view from the roof terrace, one floor up was an amazing close view of the Bosphorous and the other side of the Galata Bridge. The position is very central and there are cafes and shops on your doorstep. It could be a bit noisy at night with the windows open but the windows blocked out the noise well. I would definitely recommend this apartment you can see a lot of Istanbul daily life just by looking out your window.

Eine wunderbare Wohnung an einer tollen Lage

  • 5 of 5
Die Wohnung war einfach toll und alles hat bestens geklappt. Es ist einfacher sich vom Flughafen abholen zu lassen, als selbst ein Taxi zu organisieren. Manchmal hatten die Taxis Mühe das Haus zu finden. Natürlich ist es eine sportliche Herausforderung immer in den 4. Stock zu laufen, vorallem wenn man in den zahlreichen umliegenden Läden zu viel eingekauft hat. Aber die Aussicht ist es eindeutig Wert. Vorallem ist man schon näher an der Dachterasse!
Wir würden die Wohnung auf jeden Fall wieder mieten.

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!

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.
