This spacious, sunny 2 story flat on the 5th & 6th floors has city views and an elevator! 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, large kitchen. Charming and comfortable, and best of all is its location in central Cihangir, surrounded by cafes and next to Cihangir's central tea garden and antique alley.
Sleeps 5 in beds (3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths) and can sleep up to 8 with use of sleeper sofas in the salon. Ask about our other flat (identical layout) just below this one for large groups.
Much of Cihangir is hilly, but this flat is located in a flat location. On the first floor of the building is a delightful restaurant, and there are literally dozens of cafes within a few steps away. This flat is just a short walk or tram ride to all the major sites. http://bit.ly/17lDVlp

This spacious flat has a very homey feeling to it and is in an excellent location (for this hilly city!), with cafes just downstairs and all around (and they deliver!). For a taste of Istanbullan life, this is the flat! Cihangir's main tea garden is just next door.
Just a few minutes walk from this flat puts you just about anywhere you want to go. There is a taxi stand across the street. The tram is down the hill. Antique Alley (Cucurcuma) is one block away. Walk to Taksim or Istiklal Avenue in 5-10 min.

Located in the charming Cihangir neighborhood populated by artists, foreigners, and locals in the film business. Neighborhood has a bohemian, turn of the century feel to it.

I am a travel writer who rents flats in my favorite places on the planet to global travelers. I believe that when we 'live' in the places we visit, even briefly, we connect on a deeper level. After all, it is mostly the residents who make up the character of the places we visit. I began renting flats to stay in myself when I traveled many years ago, and learned that my experiences were far richer when I traveled in this manner. And so, I look for my favorite neighborhoods and apartments in my favorite cities, and provide them to other global travelers. Connection is what excites me. Ask me for my blog address for more information. By the way, I was in Istanbul during the demonstrations and I am still here, in fact extending my stay because it is a heartwarming time to be here. I realize that most of what you see is the news lately are protests, but that was contained in specific areas, easy to avoid. All is peaceful now and the current movement is a grass roots one - a reaching out to the people of Anatolia to inspire them to also stand up for freedom of speech. Turkey is evolving and it is an exciting time to be here. (written Aug 2013). You will be entirely safe. 99.9% of Istanbul was entirely unaffected by the demonstrations.

Perfect location in a charming neighborhood surrounded by cafes and tea gardens. The layout of this flat will give you lots of room and privacy. And you can get to all the sites easily from here. Right next door to Antique Alley in Cucurcuma.
If you have a large group, ask about the flat below this one. If available, they can be rented together. I love this location as I can get anywhere I want to go in minutes and the area is very safe. Out of all our flats, this one has the most neighborly feeling. City views. And this apartment happens to be in a flat area in a city that is full of steep hills.
We are loving Istanbul and your apartment. What a wonderful (and chaotic) city and a great location for an apartment. Despite the 4:30 call to prayers, the place is very quiet due to the proximity to the mosque. The weather here is very much like San Francisco where we are from.

10 min or less walk to tram and/or subway. Surrounded by sidewalk cafes and a large tea garden and antique alley. Great walking area. Very safe neighborhood. Just minutes walk from Istiklal, Istanbul's pedestrian dining and shopping street. This neighborhood has charm galore and is within easy reach of all the sites. Just 5 min walk to subway, or 10 min walk to tram which will wisk you to Sultanahmet in 10 min. Taxi stand across the street. You will LOVE this neighborhood...a great combination of traditional and modern.
