Lovely deluxe apartment in Beyoglu, Istanbul
Since August 2010, we have hosted 344 people in 146 groups in this apartment. (Oct 1st, 2013)
If you see your days are not available on calendar or if you have a bigger group, please ask for any other rooms, because we have 6 flats in the same building with numbers of capacity for hosting 26 people at the same time.
This is really lovely deluxe flat in Galatasaray managed by directly the owners who like to meet people from around the world. If you seek for exceptional places, this is it.
Please read until the end of this description to see what you will have in Istanbul with us.
Want to go to Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace or Grand Bazaar. Get a tram from Tophane after 5 minutes walk.
Would you like to shop? Walk to Galatasaray, Istiklal Street in 5 minutes and get everything you want.
You wanna try a glass of Raki? "Cicek Pasaji — Passage de Fleure", an old and very decorative gallery with full of drink houses, is in 5 minutes walk away. Or you may go to Nevizade Street after there. But take it slow, Raki would make you dizzy. It is our strong and very delicious spirit. It's best in a conversation.
Or you can take Galata area, near the Galata Tower. You may get there in 15 minutes by walking. There are new shops and cafes await you.
What about neighborhood? Cezayir Street, also known French Street is 25 steps up. You cannot find anything French, but lots of cafes and restaurants offers variety of courses from Turkish and international cuisine. In the street there are singers playing guitar and sing popular Turkish and English songs in the evening. This ambiance attracts tourists and natives together.
Of course entertainment is not the only thing we have. History begins from our building and street. In Tophane, the old arsenal building, the Mosque of the Admiral Kilic Ali Pasha, Modern Art museum and the new art galleries are some of attractive places you would like to interest.
By following the tram line you can get Galata Bridge, with a great view, some oriental and makes you feel you are in a fairy tale especially in the morning or near to the evening. There are fish restaurants under the bridge or near the ports also. BalikEkmek-Fish&Bread; would be a good meal.
On the way to the bridge, there are several old churches, which are hundreds of years old.
After the bridge you get Eminonu. This journey takes 20 minutes maximum by walking. Or you can take tram of course. Eminonu is where the Spice Bazaar is. We call it Egyptian Bazaar.
You want more? You will have it.
Go left from Tophane. After 2 tram stop you get Kabatas, where the ferries go to Prince's Islands. Except winter, the islands offer an experience about living in another world in Istanbul, without kaos and crowd of cars. There are 2 type of ferries. Seabuses and ferries. We recommend open ones, because you will have opportunities to feed the seagulls with simit. What is simit? It's a kind of bagel with sesame on it. Very crispy. And the best ones are being baked in our street, Bogazkesen. For islands one day would be enough.
From Kabatas you may take buses to Sariyer, near the edge of Bosphorus. There are several villages after and after with old neighborhoods on the coast with fish restaurants and cafes, and parks to sit near the sea. Ortakoy, Bebek, Emirgan, Yenikoy, Sariyer. Without taking tram, you can walk to Kabatas in 15 minutes, and get a bus to go the villages above.
After Kabatas, it is Dolmabahce, where the last Ottoman Palace is. Very decorative.
We may show you around, if you don't know anything about the neighborhood, when you get here.
So, lots of words to attract your attention.
We have some more space to write something, but why don't you come here to explore the others?
Thanks for visiting.
