The Penthouse is located in a peaceful and traditional neighborhood area , it provides a tranquil escape from the frenetic activity of central Istanbul. The Penthouse is right across the street from the Golden Horn and the building is bordered by the old Byzantine Marmara Sea Wall. In our location you can have an oppportunity to observe Real Istanbul life, rather than a tourist experience. The people in the area are very friendly. The flat is close to numerous stores, famous restaurants , bakeries, butchers, fruit sellers, wine and beer shops. The local Wednesday Open Bazaar is just minutes away. The area around the building is filled with local bakeries (which you can take full advantage of!), shops .The area has easy access to taxis. Most of the central major sites were within walking distance. Across the street on the Golden Horn is a ferry station, where one can catch the ferry to the Galata Bridge, and if one wishes, then walk or take the tram to Sultanahmet or Galata. There are of course cabs always available.
The biggest open Bazaar in Istanbul - Turkey is Wednesday Open Bazaar . You can go to this Bazaar by walking max. 5 minutes. Whatever you need (clothes, fresh foods, bags, linens, ceramics, shoes etc.) you can find in this Bazaar real half price or more cheaper. If you are in Istanbul on Wednesday you must visit this WEDNESDAY BAZAAR.

Baris AN purchased this apartment in 2008
Everything in this penthouse is just wonderful. It was airy, cozy and beautifully-designed. The view of the Marmara sea was always a good feeling to wake up to each morning. We experienced Istanbul at its best because of its great location. We want to thank Baris for
having this on HA!
I was traveling with 3 other girls (one being a friend of mine who just got married) and we were looking for an amazing place to stay while we were in Istanbul and this apartment could not have been better. The location is set aside from the hustle and bustle of the city yet close enough to walk to the spice market, and the other tourist locations. If you dont want to walk there are plenty of taxis and buses right outside of the apartment. Baris and his wife could not have been nicer to us. Baris was more then willing to accomodate us and make us feel special while we stayed in Istanbul. He put water in the fridge, ample towels, beautiful kept apartment, and beyond hospitable to us. The most magnificant thing about this place is the view. You will not regret staying here, I cannot recommend the apartment or Baris and his wife enough, book this now if you are looking for a memorable place to stay in Isantbul!
My friend & I rented this wonderful apartment for our 5 night stay in Istanbul. It is charming, comfortable, well maintained, quiet and has a fabulous view. The view from the deck is very picturesque and makes for great photo opportunities, especially at sunrise & sunset. It is in a local neighborhood so out of the hustle bustle of the touristy areas, yet it is very accessible to the main attractions via public transportation. It's a wonderful sanctuary after a day of exploring the city. There is a bus stop practically right outside the front door and Baris has a card you can simply add money to and use on the various options of public transportation: bus, tram & ferry. This was very convenient. We enjoyed our stay immensely and Baris is a charming host. We felt like we had made a new friend. He went out of his way to insure that we enjoyed our time in Istanbul. He also promptly responded to my emails before we arrived. We also appreciated the pick up service from the airport that Baris provided. I highly recommend this apartment if you appreciate a sweet "place of your own". It has all the "comforts of home", even a washing machine. Istanbul is a wonderful place to visit. There is so much to see & do. I highly recommend taking a tour with www.mylocalguideistanbul.com if you're so inclined. My friend & I thoroughly enjoyed their "Secrets of Istanbul" tour. Wish we would have had the time to go on all their tours.
Thank you Baris for your kindness and hospitality. I hope to return.
We (a couple) really enjoyed staying in the 'penthouse' in June - as per the other reviews, the view was lovely, the apartment clean and well supplied (towels, extra sheets, etc). A real highlight for us was the personal attention provided by Baris and his sister-in-law, Ferda. Baris was particularly helpful in taking complete control of the tracking down of our lost luggage and arranging to be at the apartment to receive the bags -- without his help, we would have had difficulties with the language, and we really appreciated the fact that we did not have to rush back when we were out the next day to wait for the luggage delivery. In response to our enthusiastic thank-yous, Baris said "I would not want you to spend time waiting for luggage when you only have limited time here". He was always very easy to contact, very responsive and helpful. Other highlights - buying fresh bread and vegetables from the local vendors (they call out when passing by); visiting the local Mosques (a small one quite close, and the grand Fatih Cami a bit farther (easy 10 minutes walk) is amazingly beautiful - I was there at sunset, lovely! Walking along the golden horn park where locals enjoy picnics and relaxing - the great thing about the Golden Horn penthouse is that it is close enough to the tourist areas, but you are not IN a tourist area - I felt that gave me a better appreciation of Istanbul. I would love to get back and have more time there.
My husband and I were in Istanbul from late April to early May 2013, for 10 nights. The apartment is very clean. We had everything we needed, including laundry soap and plenty of towels and blankets. Baris even provided a large bottle of fresh water and multiple guide books, in English and German. There is a large living space that is furnished well with plants and decorations that made us feel welcome and more like we were staying with family. The main bedroom has plenty of storage space and hangers. The full-size bed and pillows are comfortable. There is a second twin size bed in a small room. I am sure it would be comfortable to sleep there but it is not a private room. It does not have a door or privacy screen. The outside terrace is wonderful. We enjoyed watching the boats on the water, the families eating in the park, and the seagulls flying overhead. The neighborhood was family oriented and safe, with plenty of food markets nearby. At the end of our trip, one of the neighbors even asked Ed if he wanted to go with him to the local cafe for some tea.
Baris was extremely helpful, friendly, and responsive to requests. Working with him to arrange the transfer to and from the airport was perfect. Baris was there to meet us when we arrived. When we left, he arrived early to help make sure we got the car back to the airport with no problems. This was especially nice in our case because we had to leave for the airport at about 5:15 am!
We loved the apartment, enjoyed the experience of working with Baris, and would go back to Istanbul and would rent from Baris again. We would recommend this apartment to family and friends.
This was a great stay. The pickup at the airport went perfectly, and we arrived very efficiently at the apartment. Baris met us immediately, and had everything ready. What a nice and pleasant man, with very good English. He was very helpful and gave us many needed tips on Istanbul. The place was clean, actually spotless. Very well maintained. The place is smaller, but there were five of us (two adults and three teenagers) and we were very comfortable. We had everything we needed. Laundry was great. The view is fantastic and taxi cabs were easy to catch at the nearby intersection - and they're very reasonably priced as well. The kids loved the little pastry shop next door for breakfast. It was nice to experience a "regular" neighborhood and not be in the touristy hotel areas. We would definitely recommend this place.
The penthouse is located at the Historic Center of Constantinople, just behind the Bizantion Walls and in front of the GoldenHorn Marmara Sea...
