The apartment is on the 4th floor of a multi-family house. It is divided into a large living room, bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen. The apartment has been fully renovated and furnished.
It has a wooden floor board, floor heating (tiles), central heating, fitted kitchen with refrigerator, built-in oven, gas stove, washing machine, coffee maker, iron and utensils. LED TV, bedding, towels, orthopaedic mattress and pillows are also available.
One double bed and two sofas that can also be converted to beds serve as sleeping spaces.
In the entrance there is a cloakroom with sufficient storage options. All rooms are accessible from the hallway. The well equipped kitchen fulfils virtually all desires. Only a microwave, we have omitted deliberately for health reasons.
The spacious living room is divided into living and dining area. From here you can also get into the kitchen. A coffee table and the large 102 cm LED TV with Turkish and European channels invite you to hang around. Internet access is per Webstick for € 10 / 2 weeks.
The mosaic floor, the small dome in the ceiling, walk-in shower, as well as the vanity in bathroom are unique and were particularly made by specialised companies.
You can retreat here after an eventful day, in the midst of the Turkish daily routine. From here it is only five stops (about 15 minutes) by metro to the old town. Every day something new can be discovered in the multicultural city.
Supermarket, bakery, fruit and vegetable shops as well as a few mom and pop shops can be found right in your surrounding for your daily needs.
Tip 1: You should visit one of the many Hamams. You should plan half a day for a visit. My favourite Hamam: Kucuk-Hamam in Zeytinburnu (price about € 10)
Tipp 2: Buy it once at the weekly market, which is held on Saturday in the Cumhuriyet Caddesi (street). Wide variety and rates will convince you, and the market is just 400 metres from the apartment.
We belong to the oldest traditional families, who live there in this district. I spent my childhood partly there and had bought sesame ring (simit) and cold drinks as a child at football matches.
At present I live in Germany.
We have enjoyed living in this district.
My mother is unfortunately no longer the youngest and was bothered by some things in the home which no longer worked properly.
That was the reason for the extensive renovation.
Bathroom, room partitions, kitchen ... yes, pretty much all of them were newly renovated.
Once I was done, my mother said: 'I do not want to live here.'
'Why not Mom?'
'I'm getting older day by day, I want to go to my daughter to the countryside.'
'Ahaaa! Mom, why did not you predict? I have put sooo much work into it now. '
Selling the house was never my idea! So I have chosen this path. I hope that the work was worth it and I look forward to your personal opinion.
