Overview

Beyoglu Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

firuz!place is on the first and second floors of a 19th century traditional Turkish house. The apartment has two good-sized bedrooms (one double, one twin) with a shower-room on the first floor. Bedrooms are separated by a hallway and arch with curtains for doors. A sweet brick staircase leads up to the open-plan living/dining space and spacious balcony above.

It’s 90 m2 in total and full of character. The location of firuz!place is excellent and interesting: Cihangir/Cukurcuma are ‘happening’ areas in Beyoglu, yet still very authentic.

A short wander in one direction will bring you to quiet streets of antique shops and in another to Istanbul Modern contemporary art gallery on the Bosphorus. Orhan Pamuk’s Museum Of Innocence is right opposite firuz!place and Istiklal is just up the hill.

firuz!place comfortably accommodates five people.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed a long weekend in Istanbul and were enthraled by the interesting and diverse city. Our accommodation was in the nicest possible area, beautifully furnished and equipped and the perfect destination to come home to after a day (or night!) exploring.



I would have no hesitation at all of recommending this property to anyone wishing to enjoy amazing Istanbul. We will be back!

Lovely home in a bustling Beyoglu neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
Everything about our apartment stay was terrific! The apartment itself is comfortable and spacious, with two bedrooms, big enough to sleep 5 comfortably; a nice full bathroom with rain shower; open-plan kitchen, eating area, living room and sitting area; and large balcony shaded with an umbrella. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and stocked with paper goods and bottled drinking water, plus plenty of bed and bath linens. The neighborhood is vibrant and exciting, and very hilly! Think San Francisco ... and be prepared for some strenuous uphill walking. The apartment is about a 5-10 minute (uphill) walk to Istiklal Caddesi and about a 5-10 minute (downhill) walk to the Tophane streetcar station, where there is a nice little grocery store, DIa, where all the necessities can be found.

Things we especially loved in the apartment: the panini-style bread toaster; French press coffee maker and electric kettle; dishwasher, wonderful balcony; and comfortable beds. There are lots of wonderful sit-down restaurants within a few minutes walk, also lots of "street food" quick shops, for kebabs, sausages, etc.

Highly recommended

We had a really outstanding experience with this apartment and it has totally converted my wife to the VRBO approach.
Superb location near the Tophane tram stop and the main pedestrian shopping/strolling/eating street (Istikal Caddesi) but quiet and non-touristic with parents taking their kids to school in the mornings. Great bakery and many small grocery stores around the corner or along the street.
The apartment itself is immaculate, with clean and modern fittings and decor. It feels spacious - open plan living/dining/kitchen area and balcony upstairs, bedrooms downstairs. We were met on check-in and check-out by Monica who was very friendly and helpful. Tarkan and Julia were also very responsive by e-mail.
Be aware that in addition to the stairs, the walk to the tram stop and Istikal Caddesi main street are quite steep and the pavements very minimal and uneven. However, there is also a taxi station (Galata Taksi) 50 m from the door.
Highly recommended.
