OTTOMAN STYLE APARTMENT FIT FOR A SULTAN

Gallipoli and Troy Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

The Sultan’s Nest was recently renovated by renowned Istanbul architect Selma An, received an award, and as a result was featured in the Turkish design magazine 'Evim'. It combines classic Ottoman elements with contemporary international style to create the perfect short or long-term accommodation. The apartment offers well lit spaces, is tastefully furnished and provides two full baths, one with a unique “personal Hamman”. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen (150 x 200 cm) bed and one with two single (90 x 190 cm) beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and an office for your work needs. The dining table seats eight people comfortably and the large, well appointed living area features a luxury sofa which opens to a double (120 x 200 cm) bed, suitable for extended use. The living area’s Ottoman nook features comfortable traditional floor cushions ideal for reading and relaxing.

The apartment is conveniently situated in Nisantasi, a fascinating neighborhood in the heart of Istanbul’s European side with wonderful restaurants, bakeries and cafes. You will enjoy shopping the brand name boutiques such as Chanel, Versace, Fendi, Armani, Louis Vuitton among many. The neighborhood also offers unparalleled antique and textile shops.

The Pangalti shopping area – a five minute walk from the apartment, offers takeaway meals, fresh organic vegetables, cheeses and other Turkish delicacies. Locals and foreigners alike enjoy shopping in our neighborhood.

The tourist sites of Sultanahmet are easy to reach via metro and tram or by taxi.

The apartment is also close to Taksim Square, the nightlife and transportation center of Istanbul. You can be assured that normal life continues after the Gezi park protests. You can visit the protest site or skip it, as you prefer. To reach Taksim and Istiklal:

• By metro, Taksim is one short stop from the Osmanbey metro station, located almost at our door. Trains run every few minutes until midnight every day.

• On foot, by a 25 minute walk down Halaskargazi Street, an attractive boulevard featuring government buildings, museums, and shopping

• By taxi, at any hour of day or night, the short ride costs 7 Turkish Lira

• By bus, or dolmus (coop taxi), the ride is just a few minutes

We can assure you that staying in the Sultan’s nest, you will feel close to all the Beyoglu nightlife.

Our location is special because it encourages you to branch out from the well known attractions of Sultanahmet and Beyoglu, to experience the world of the elegant, multi-lingual, long-term Istanbulus who make their home in Nisantasi. We were delighted to discover this area, and we know you’ll love it too.

The Sultan’s Nest is ideal for business travelers, holidaying couples, and families as well as groups of friends seeking a reunion venue. Except for the nightly call to prayer – a feature of all of Turkey - the apartment location is perfect for a good night sleep. We are certain that this will be your home away from home. We would like to welcome you soon.

Our family visited Istanbul in 2008 and fell in love with this vibrant city. I am a graduate of Princeton and I am currently a law student. Right after graduation from Princeton, I came to Istanbul to live and work for one year. I am currently forming a Tequila import business and travel often between the two continents. It is this traveling that helped me understand the needs and expectations of travelers, be they a family, a business person or a group of friends. By the way, the cute one in the picture is my sister.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011

The Sultan’s Nest is our home, and thus is renovated, decorated, and furnished to an extremely high standard.

Your days will be full of adventures in this wonderful city and at night the last thing you want is noise and disturbances. Our street is quiet, well lit and safe. Our building is accessible only by the residents of the four apartments, who are quiet and polite Turkish families.

Our location provides excellent access to:

• The historical sites of Sultanahmet – the funicular from Taksim connects with the tram which runs across the Galata Bridge, stopping at the spice market, Agha Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, etc.

• The nightlife of Taksim and the surrounding streets, where the music and fun lasts till dawn every night

• The cafes, bakeries, and restaurants of Pangalti

• The international chic of Nisantasi

This apartment served the four of us (2 couples) extremely well. Having rented vacation apartments/homes in Rome, Venice, San Francisco, New York, Honolulu and various other places in Canada and the U.S., we knew what we were seeking in the way of a vacation rental when we chose Istanbul as a destination. We were looking for a well located, spacious, light-filled, clean, comfortable, quiet apartment with a well equipped kitchen and good beds/bathrooms. We found all of these in the Sultan's Nest where we spent 3 weeks from mid October to early November, 2013. The apartment is near a busy and commercial shopping street, but is situated in a very quiet residential zone in an area mostly dedicated at the ground level to wholesale textile showrooms. We used Istanbul's highly efficient public transportation systems extensively during our stay and having the Osmanbey Metro station just a short 1.5 blocks from the apartment was perfect. Very good grocery shops were close by in the Pangalti area. We also frequented some good modern cuisine restaurants such as Den Cafe and Restaurant and Delicatessan, as well as more traditional restaurants, in the heart of fashionable Nisantasi only a few blocks from the apartment. We are reasonably fit adults ranging in age from 64 to 76. While we often felt winded when we reached our door, we soon came to view the 5 flights of stairs as a nice mini work out especially on those days when we came and went 2 or 3 times. The owner was easy to deal with from the beginning of our interactions all the way through to refunding our deposit. He was knowledgeable and all communication was very timely, polite, accommodating and helpful. We, as others before us, highly recommend The Sultan's Nest for a short or a longer-term stay.

October in Istanbul

We rented the Sultan's Nest apartment for one week in October 2013 and highly recommend it. It is very spacious for two couples, the beds are comfortable and it's very clean. We really enjoyed staying in a regular Istanbul neighborhood rather than the crowded historical district. Shops, restaurants and public transportation are in close proximity to the apartment. The owner provides a great manual with information about the apartment and the neighborhood. A taxi ride to the historic district (Sultahnamat) costs around $10. We would also recommend the airport pick-up service that the apartment manager can arrange. Istanbul is a fascinating beautiful city and exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful place...unfortunate timing...superb resolution

After a long, long flight from California, we were delighted to arrive at beautiful Sultan's Nest on a cheery June morning. The rep (who incidentally was the decorator) met us at the apartment, showed us around and even accompanied us to the nearest grocery so that we could stock up a supplies for our week.

We arrived home from the day's sightseeing, we found ourselves in the midst of the local unrest, which had been shut down in Taksim Squarehad and moved to this neighborhood. Tear gas and protesters and police delayed the two block walk to the apartment for several hours, and we were lucky to have been taken in by a local woman who noticed we were a bit flumoxed about how to proceed safely. We were able to return to the apartment later that evening.

We discussed with the owner that in spite of the beautiful location, we needed to feel more secure for the rest of our stay. He confirmed the day's events with neighbors and offered us a refund. We were able to quickly find a hotel for the rest of our stay.

Now all this being said, we realize that none of what happened that day could ever have been anticipated as the protests had been peaceful and limited to Taksim Square. What we want to emphasize is 1) the beauty and comfort of Sultan's Nest, 2) the responsiveness of the owner, 3) and the peacefullness of Istanbul after that day. We look forward to returning and benefitting from all that Sultan's Nest and it's neighborhood have to offer.

Wonderful vacation…protests did not interfere with our unforgettable experience!

Our family of four had the opportunity to stay at the Sultan’s nest last month. We were nervous about coming because of the protests, but the apartment is located away from the protests so we felt safe in Nisantasi surrounded by the wonderful ambiance. Because of the unexpected events, the manager Nahide called us several times during the week to check on us to make sure we were fine in the apartment and safe around the city. The owner was also in touch with us daily as the media was reporting a lot of difficulties in the area, but I must report that all the tourist sites - except for the Dolmabahce palace, were open and functioning, and we had no trouble at all taking taxis to and from Sultanahmet. We did not go to Taksim Square nor to Istiklal, as we were advised to stay away from that area by the manager and the Turkish neighbors in the building. Needless to say, we were disappointed to not visit those sites but there will be another trip to this wonderful city. We recommend this apartment to those who wish to explore the wonderful gifts of this city, its history and development. We would love to return to this apartment for a future visit!
