This apartment, a one floor walk-up located in the Beyoglu district of Istanbul was perfect for our family of 2 adults, 2 teens and an extended family member traveling with us. The area is very safe and conveniently located in an art and fashion district, far enough away from the touristy Sultanhamet restaurants and shops, yet close enough to walk there (25 minutes) to see the historic sites or to take a short walk to the funicular which goes to the tram. You really feel like you are home when you come back to the apartment at the end of the day. The photos do not really do it justice, and the view from the terrace is exquisite at night. It is reasonably priced, clean, comfortable and furnished with everything you need. The owner was very responsive to all of my emails and questions before we left, and the managers were very accommodating. We took the taxi they arranged from the airport to the apartment which I highly recommend because I think it would be very hard to find on your own. Keith and Tolga met us to store our luggage the day we left so that we could spend an extra day in Istanbul. I would gladly stay in this apartment again if we return!
