Overview

Istanbul Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, Central, Historic And Recently Renovated

Kumru apartment is on the first floor - one flight of stairs - of an elegant 19th century building less than a minute walk from Galata Tower. The building has an original marble stairwell with stained glass windows and the apartment is a freshly decorated recent renovation. It backs onto a courtyard garden and so has a lovely peaceful feel to it.

There are three good-sized double bedrooms, two with double beds and one with twin beds that can be put together if required. All have high quality crisp white linens. The kitchen is stylish and spacious, with a breakfast table and courtyard garden view. It’s well-equipped with a gas hob, gas oven, fridge freezer, and dishwasher. The large living room is comfortable with sofa and armchairs, leading onto a separate dining area with large dining table. The shower room is spacious and characterful.

This apartment is 120 m2 in total with high ceilings and large wooden sash windows. Original panelled doors and exposed floorboards have give a gracious yet cosy atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people. and a seventh/child on the sofa-bed in the living room is possible.

Guest Access:

Guests will have the complete privacy of the entire apartment.

The Neighbourhood:

Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner.

No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.

Getting Around:

Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a few minutes walk away. The famous Istiklal Avenue is around 5 minutes stroll. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 12 minutes by public transport or 20 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 10 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 15 minutes.

There are many taxi ranks around and some secure car parks too.

Interaction with Guests:

This is a small Turkish-British family project. Julia and Tarkan used to live in Istanbul then Singapore and are now balancing life between England and Istanbul. If we're in Istanbul during your stay we'd love to meet you.

Your questions and booking will be handled by us wherever we are. When you arrive in Istanbul Tarkan’s wonderful family and/or our friendly team will welcome you to your apartment, give you the keys and explain about practicalities and the neighbourhoods.

We’ll all help you as much as you need and we're always only a phone call or email away.

Schöne Wohnung in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne, renovierte Altbauwohnung, nur einige Schritte vom Galata-Turm entfernt gelegen. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll gestaltet und sehr gut ausgestattet. In der Küche findet man alles, was man braucht und auch die Basics, wie Spülmittel etc. sind schon vorhanden. Das Wohnzimmer ist ebenfalls sehr schön gestaltet. Die Schlafzimmer sind schön aber eher minimalistisch möbliert. Statt eines Schrankes o.ä. gibt es einen Kleiderständer. Für uns als Familie mit 3 erwachsenen Kindern war die Wohnung perfekt. Auch der Kontakt mit den Verwaltern war sehr nett und informativ. Sehr empfehlenswert!

Great apartment and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Last minute help from IstanbulPlace apartments as we were looking for a one night stay for a big group. What a beautiful flat and we wished we stayed there longer. Perfectly equipped to make you feel "at home", super clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated. Last but not least a minute away from Galata tower but hidden away in quiet street. Perfect for a group as there is enough space for everybody so instead of going for a hotel, bring your family friends or co-workers here.

Apartments are run by wonderful people and their kindness meant a lot to us.

Stay there!

Schöne Wohnung in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Diese schöne Ferienwohnung ist geschmackvoll und sehr gut ausgestattet. Sie liegt in einem lebendigen und beliebten Viertel, nur wenige Schritte vom Galataturm entfernt. Auch Restaurants jeder Art und viele kleine nette Geschäfte gibt es in der Nähe. Die Küche ist super ausgestattet und es gibt alles, was man braucht und Extras wie Spülmaschinentabs, Regenschirme und Einkaufskorb. Toll fanden wir auch, dass an den Schlüsseln 2 aufladbare Karten für die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel hingen.

Wir haben uns mit unserer Familie in dieser Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt und können sie nur empfehlen!
