My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay in this very comfortable and extremely roomy apartment. All amenties were as stated and all in very good condition. The owner, who was only a phone call away, was very helpful with advice and recommendations for interesting excursions. A flight of steps at the entrance of the apartments takes you down to the street below with a 5 minute walk to the tram stop. On the way you pass the butcher, a greengrocer, a supermarket and a number of small cafes. The tram, for a fee of 2 Turkish Lira will take you, across the Galata Bridge to all the historical sites in the old Istanbul including the Grand Bazaar. Alternatively leaving the apartment a 5 minute walk will take you up to Taksim Square, the commercial centre of modern Istanbul. Also the famous pedestarian concourse, Istikal Caddasi, commences its 3 kiliometer downhill run to the Galata Tower from the Square. There are many excellent restaurants, bars and cafes in the surrounding Cihangir and Beyoglu areas, all within walking distance from the apartment. We strongly suggest taking the tram to Eminonu and picking up the Kadakoy ferry and enjoy a fantastic authentic Turkish meal at the Ciya Restaurant for a very reasonable cost. Coming back to the apartment after a full day of sightseeing and enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the view of one of the most amazing waterways in the world is an end to a perfect day.
