Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartments in the Azure building pull off a rare trick as they are actually bigger, nicer and better positioned in reality than they look online. In fact we found them to be some of the best value accommodation in the whole of the regenerated Taksim/Cihangir neighbourhood, which is also one of the most popular parts of the trendy Beyo?lu district in 'new' Istanbul. First off the apartment building itself in a very quiet and safe street, and yet is also just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Taksim Square and a wealth of cafes, restaurants, shops and parks. You are also just a ten minute stroll from Tophane tram station, which carries you swiftly across the Galata Bridge towards the Eminönü and Sultanahmet districts (where the famous tourist sights are). It is also from Tophane you can quickly reach the Kabatas ferry port (great for day trips by boat) or you can carry on (via foot or bus) to see the magnificent Dolmabahçe Palace, the nearby busy suburb and port of Be?ikta? and the famous Ortaköy Mosque at the foot of the Bosphorous Bridge. Closer to home there are many supermarkets and grocery stores nearby (including two Carrefours, two Dias, a BIM and a Namli) plus many independent and specialist shops. You can also discover why the area has a reputation for being one of the most bohemian and hip in Istanbul; with lots of cool coffee bars, art galleries, boutiques and antique shops right on your doorstep. But when not out discovering the joys of shopping on the famous Istiklal boulevard, sampling the many and varied kebabs and/or cakes on offer on S?raselviler Street, checking out the latest exhibition at nearby Istanbul Modern, or jumping on a tram, tube train or ferry to see The Blue Mosque, The Grand Bazaar, one of the Princes' Islands or to even visit the Asian shore – you can kick back in a very comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped apartment that offers a big plasma TV, decent and reliable broadband wi-fi (with multiple routers serving the individual flats, a useful idea) and very efficient heating/aircon. Also, if you're in to self-catering (as we are) you'll also enjoy having four touch sensitive ceramic hobs, a state-of-the-art combination oven (with conventional fan and/or microwave options) and a full-sized family fridge freezer. The bathroom is also of a high standard with a generous walk-in shower and lots of on-demand hot water - plus it is here that the washing machine and tumble dryer are discreetly tucked away. The

ESTUPENDO

  • 5 of 5
El apartamento no defrauda, es lo que se ve en las fotos: amplio, limpio, luminoso, confortable. El casero nos esperaba a nuestra llegada, es un hombre muy amable que nos dijo que nos llamáramos en caso de cualquier problema. No tuvimos ninguno.
El barrio es turco y no está cerca de ningún sitio turístico, ni de Santa Sofía ni del Gran Bazar. Hay que coger un tranvía bajando una cuesta y en 5 minutos se llega a cualquier sito. La ventaja es que se está en un sito no turístico, tranquilo y silencioso por las noches, con lo que se descansa muy bien. La única pega que le puedo ver para algunas personas es que, de vuelta del tranvía, hay que subir una cuesta. Desaconsejado para personas mayores o con problemas de algún tipo. A nosotros no nos importó nada, estuvimos encantados en Estambul, una ciudad maravillosa y acogedora.

A GREAT, WELL-LOCATED APT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our 6 nights at this spotless modern apt which is just as advertised, including the pictures. It is equipped with everything you need, and if anything is wanting, the staff is so accommodating and helpful - Kadir dropped by with a new frying spatula when I couldn't find one to make our eggs the first morning! All the furniture is new-looking, in great condition and comfortable. The wi-fi works perfectly. As mentioned, it's well-located to the tram, groceries, restaurants and walkable to many main attractions. The only thing that might be a drawback to some (but wasn't for us) is that it's a steep walk on narrow cobblestone roads in the area around the apt, specifically from the tram stop to the apt. We'd recommend taking the airport-apt car service offered because of this, but also because it might be hard to find the first time. That aside, this place is two thumbs up!

GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable spacious apartment with a sunny living room located in a quite area just a few minutes walk from the lively Istiklal street. The location allows you to dive to the centre of modern Istanbul. Plenty of nice restaurants and cafes around, as well as numerous bakeries, groceries and department stores. The host is fantastic - very friendly and responsive. We very much enjoyed our 9-day-stay and were very delighted with our choice.

GREAT BUT FEW DRAWBACKS IF TRAVELLING WITH A CHILD

  • 4 of 5
We'd agree with about everything it has already been said about this appartment however, if travelling with a small child there are a few drawbacks to reconsider.

First one is that the bedroom is so small the baby cot doesn't fit in it and the bed is too small to sleep two adults and a child.

What also didn't work for us was the fact there is no real dining room in the appartment which is sort of unusual considering there is a fully equipped kitchen there. We found it difficult to feed our one and a half year old at the low coffee table in the living room (and wasn't friendly to our backs either).

Also worth mentioning is there is no fence on the marble stairway leading up to the appartment so you really have to watch your steps and not let your lil' one out of sight even for a second.

Apart from that we enjoyed our stay there and would recommend the place.

GREAT APARTMENT AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was as lovely as the photographs, clean and quiet with little passing traffic (an important consideration in Istanbul). The layout was really convenient for us (a couple) - nice large powerful shower as well as relaxing sofa. Cast provided excellent customer service - Serdal lent us his Istanbul card during the stay and helped with our late check out and getting to the airport. The location in Cihangir is great - near lots of local restaurants, cafes, shops and not far to walk to Cukurcuma Taksim, Isiklal Caddesi and the tram to Sultanahmet. The food was so good in the neighbourhood we rarely cooked in but the kitchen was well equipped. It was our first visit to Istanbul but not our last and next time we will stay here again.

Map

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Atatürk Airport
Car: not necessary

Beyoglu and Cihangir in particular is Istanbul's most trendy and multicultural neighbourhood. European professionals, local TV stars and a intellectuals live and work in the here. Taxim Square, Istiklal Street, Galata Tower and the Bosporus are all less than 10min walking distance. While the area offers plenty of restaurants and entertainment options, the property is located in a very quite street.

Public transportations are also at a close reach from the apartment. The tram, a convenient, cheap and reliable way to get to historical sites, is at a short walking distance from the flat. The metro and buses are also within walking distance.

To make your stay even more enjoyable and convenient, we offer to organise a variety of popular and bespoke services, i.e. a nostalgic Bosphorus boat trip, special guided tours through the city, a multi-lingual nanny service etc. For relaxation you might want to complement your activities with a massage or a yoga and meditation session, all in the comfort of your CAST accommodation.
