The huge roof terrace of the building has magnificent views of the old city, where both the sunrise over the Bosphorus and sunset over the Golden Horn can be enjoyed.
The spacious apartment is enhanced by a high ceiling with air conditioning and gas fired central heating throughout.
Firuze Apartment is situated in one of the best locations in Istanbul.
The apartment is on Galipdede Street, Tünel/Galata area, in Beyoglu district on the European side of Istanbul across the Golden Horn from the old city.
The street, Galipdede, as the Galata Mevlevihanesi (Mevlevi Dervish lodge) was once called is famous for its many shops selling musical instruments.
There are numerous food shops and stalls in the vicinity selling fresh fruit, vegetables, bread, meat, fish, cheese and wine.
There are many charming local cafes and restaurants in and around the neighborhood. Tünel neighborhood, one of the most bohemian quarters of Istanbul is 2 minutes walk from the apartment.
The area is very safe and you can walk to many of the city's best bars, nightclubs and restaurants.
Most of the Istanbul attractions are within easy reach either on foot, by reliable public transport or by taxi. There are historic mosques, churches and synagogues nearby.
Living room is beautifully furnished and has a small balcony and windows, which have wonderful view of the Galipdede Street and can see the historic tram as it comes into Tunnel Square at the southern end of Istiklal St.
There is a cozy dining area adjacent to the living room and the kitchen.
Large beautiful kitchen with granite worktop and breakfast bar. It is fully equipped with the latest high end Bosch appliances.
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!
Our family of four, including two teenage children, used this wonderful apartment as a base for a week of exploring beautiful Istanbul. The location was perfect, with much within walking distance and easy access to public transportation for everything else. The apartment itself is immaculate, totally refurbished and with all new appliances. It is centrally located, but two of the bedrooms face out on a side street so even those who have problems with noise can sleep at night (my family slept great regardless -- I'm the only one affected and I had no problems). Best of all is the care one gets from the wonderful owner and her managers. We were met at the airport and someone checked in on us just about daily to see if we had any needs. This for us is huge as generally the tradeoff with renting versus a hotel is that in the latter one gets access to hotel staff for questions. Here we had the best of all worlds, and for the four of us we actually ended up saving money as well. All in all, this wonderful property and its owner were key to our amazing family vacation.
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!
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!
this unit was just as advertised, and in a great location for touring Istanbul. Very close to all transportation and all of the sites, I would highly recommend and would rent again if I was travelling to Turkey.
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.
Located in one of the best locations in Beyoglu near Galata Tower, Istiklal Ave and 20 minutes from Sultanahmet.
