It is one of the places which represents the history of Istanbul, and the area is like a bridge between past and present.

It's located in a central area, thus close to transportation, entertainments, sightseeing, restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping, arts and cultures.

VERY NICE APARTMENT IN BEYOGLU

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment and it helped us experience Istanbul. The apartment was clean, the kitchen had all the necessities, and the view off the balcony was spectacular.
Pros: Location, just a block off the main pedestrian way, Istiklal, and in close proximity to a bunch of good restaurants and shops. The apartment was hot and stuffy when we arrived, but opening the balcony window and kitchen windows created a nice, cooling cross breeze. The bedroom is upstairs in a finished attic. It's nice, but is very stuffy until you get the air con going. I'd recommend starting the air con as soon as you arrive in preparation for the evening. The clothes washer was very helpful and we air-dried our clothes on the clothes rack provided on the balcony. Nahide was very helpful throughout our stay.
Pros: Proximity to Istiklal, Taksim Square, the Tunel funicular to other public transport connections, restaurants and shops in the backstreets south of Istiklal. Other pros include cleanliness, the nice cross breeze, the large kitchen, and the fanstastic balcony with beautiful views of Sultanahmet and Galata Tower. The views were spectacular. The security door at the entrance to the building was secure.
Cons: The attic bedroom was stuffy until the air con caught up. In hotter weather than we had, I wonder if the air con would be enough. Lots of stairs to get up to the apartment. The exterior of the building was not very pleasant, but the apartment itself was very nice.
Tips: Walk down Istiklal, but for better restaurants and fewer crowds, try the side streets in the blocks just south of Istiklal, all the way up to Taksim. Hidden gems on those side streets. For a traditional Turkish breakfast, kahvalti, we enjoyed Cafe Firuz, which was a few blocks south and east. Watch Anthony Bourdain's show on Istanbul for more eating ideas. Another tip, hire Istanbul's Best Taxi Driver, as we did. We had a great day with him for a very reasonable price. besttaxidriver.com

Thank you, Nahide!

GREAT LOCATION AND LOVELY ATMOSPHERE IN ISTANBUL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our week in Istanbul. The location is wonderful - close to transportation, yet on a quiet side street away from the Istiklal noise. We were able to easily walk to Tunel in about 10 to 15 minutes and to the Karakoy station in 15 to 20, making it easy to get to and from the Sultanhamet sights. The surrounding streets are full of restaurants and shops. There is a market just down the block and others within close range. The owner, Nahide, was extremely kind, helpful, and responsive in getting us oriented.
The balcony view is lovely and the apartment is clean and spacious. It has a dishwasher and a washing machine (no dryer but clothes will dry very quickly on the balcony). You will get a good workout from the stairs, but that just means you can enjoy more delicious Istanbul eating, right?
I would definitely stay here again! If you go, don't miss the wonderful Hayvore restaurant just down the block - it has delicious and inexpensive Black Sea fare.

CHARMING GEM IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was exactly as described. Views from the terrace were spectactular, which made the four-flight walk up worth it. Nahide was very helpful and had arranged for transportation to and from the airport. Both drivers were so professional and courteous. Getting around was easy, and the surrounding neighborhood had much to offer. The Hayvore Restaurant (within steps from the flat) offers delicious Turkish food at extremely reasonable prices. We ate there on several occasions - even did take-out. I highly recommend this home away from home!

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
I had the joy of staying for just under a week at this lovely place. The facilities were wonderful and the views breathtaking. I had a marvellous stay on my own, enjoying the sights and sounds of the local area and Istabbul. Nahide was a fantastic hostess. She made sure I was picked up from the airport and delivered safely after a long flight from Australia. I couldn't ask for more. THANK YOU!!!

I would recommend this place without hesitation.

LOVELY APARTMENT IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time in the apartment, which is just down from Istiklal. The location was perfect, because you have access to all the restaurants in the area, and the quaint shops and cafes in Cihangir and around Galata, yet you can cruise down busy Istiklal to get to the tram for the Old City. There's a small grocery store just down the street for your supplies. Yes, the hike up to the apartment gets your heart-rate going, but the view from the terrace makes it all worth it. A few things to note, especially for Americans: the bath only has tub with one of those hand-head shower attachments, so there is no fixed shower nozzle. We took baths so that worked fine. Also, per the description, there is just a washer (no dryer), but there are wash and fold services in the area.

The apartment pretty much looks just like the photos. The sleeping area is upstairs, in a large finished attic space. There are a number of wardrobes for clothes. The king-sized bed had a duvet on it. The mattress seemed to be a coil mattress. Not the most comfortable, but not the really hard mattresses I often see in Europe either. Tucked behind a wardrobe is a twin bed, that also has its own nightstand and mirror. Given the ceiling height, it would be suitable for an older child traveling with family. The living room, kitchen galley and eating area downstairs are nicely decorated. There's plenty of cutlery, plates, bowls and cups, plus knives for food preparation. There's also a coffee maker and an electric water kettle, as well as a dishwasher.

There is no landline in the apartment, so if you need a phone be sure to bring a cell phone that will work in Turkey. However, there is a flatscreen TV and a CD player. Many travelers have left guidebooks in the apartment, so if you've left yours behind never fear!

Nahide and her husband are great people. We had some issues with the wifi while we were there, and they were happy to fix them as quickly as possible.

The apartment was a great introduction to Istanbul and we were so happy to have found it.

OUTSTANDING APARTMENT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We very much appreciated being picked up at the airport - it felt like friends or family greeting us at the airport. Very nice touch. The apartment was exceptional and spotlessly clean. The pictures do not do this place justice as we cannot properly depict the stunning view of the river, Galeta Tower, and mosques. The view from the balcony is outstanding! In fact we went to a few patio restaurants and bars looking for a better view but could not find a better view.
The location is excellent and easy to navigate to and from. We took the street car to the funiculaire a few times but mostly we just walked as since walking Istiklal street is so entertaining or we took a cab. The area is very safe and comfortable walking around day or night ( we even let our young teenagers go out shopping on their own).
The Hayvore restaurant down the street is delicious - thanks for the recommendation. However, we also enjoyed just walking to the end of Istiklal and indulging in the food from the street vendors.
We would gladly recommend this apartment to friends and family. We hope to return one day soon.
Thank you for the warm welcome and great stay in Istanbul.
