Excellent apartment

We had a lovely time in the apartment – spacious rooms, nicely appointed, with new appliances. Very clean. The two and half baths were much appreciated, given that there were five of us. Views from the rooftop were stunning. The local manager was very helpful and friendly. Great location, with Istiklal a few short steps away. We highly recommend this place!

Fantastic apartment in Beyoglu

This apartment, a one floor walk-up located in the Beyoglu district of Istanbul was perfect for our family of 2 adults, 2 teens and an extended family member traveling with us. The area is very safe and conveniently located in an art and fashion district, far enough away from the touristy Sultanhamet restaurants and shops, yet close enough to walk there (25 minutes) to see the historic sites or to take a short walk to the funicular which goes to the tram. You really feel like you are home when you come back to the apartment at the end of the day. The photos do not really do it justice, and the view from the terrace is exquisite at night. It is reasonably priced, clean, comfortable and furnished with everything you need. The owner was very responsive to all of my emails and questions before we left, and the managers were very accommodating. We took the taxi they arranged from the airport to the apartment which I highly recommend because I think it would be very hard to find on your own. Keith and Tolga met us to store our luggage the day we left so that we could spend an extra day in Istanbul. I would gladly stay in this apartment again if we return!

Beautiful, newly renovated apartment near Galata Tower

My husband and teenage son and I stayed here last week and it was a perfect location for sightseeing. We could walk to Sultanahmet easily, as well as to Istiklal Caddesi which is a block away. There are lots of great little side streets nearby with good restaurants. The outside of the building looks old but the inside is absolutely beautiful. It is newly renovated, pristinely clean, with air-conditioning which helps to keep things a little quieter. Keith, the caretaker, was very helpful in getting us settled. I would highly recommend this apartment!

All over a very nice stay. Good location (but a bit noisy, as it is situated in a pedestrian street), the apartment is very spacy (the diningarea is a bit small), the kitchen is well equipped, the bathrooms very nice, the location superb and the apartment was clean and well maintained.
I would recommend it to friends.
