Welcome to Nathalie&Ahmet’s place: our flat wich looks to the Sea of Marmara and the Princes's Islands, is conveniently located on the Asian side of Istanbul in Maltepe, between Sabiha Gökçen airport (easily accessible in 30/40 mn) and the historical centre of Istanbul.
The room you’ll be staying in is large (20 m2), full of light and nicely decorated, with private bathroom and wc and a small balcony.
At our place, you'll be able to enjoy a traditional Turkish breakfast (which means plenty of Turkish tea or coffee, honey, homemade marmalades, tomatoes, olives, cheese, etc.) while marveling at the view on the Princes’ Islands, either sitting on the main large balcony or in our luminous dining room.
From our flat, it’s a 5 mn walk to the metro, which goes straight away in 20 mn to the pier area of Kadiköy. From there, a public ferry will take you in another 20 mn to the very heart of Istanbul: to Eminönü (Topkapi Palace, Ayia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Süleymaniye Mosque…), to Karaköy (Galata tower, Beyoğlu district …) or to Kabataş (Taksim, Dolmabahçe Palace, Ortaköy…). With seagulls flying all around the ferry and the impressive skyline of old Istanbul in front of you, this short sea crossing from Kadiköy will be one of the most relaxing moments of your day, believe us!
From Kadiköy, you can go on a Bosphorus tour or to the Princes’ Islands or you can just walk around in that lively and modern but quiet part of Istanbul. You’ll find plenty of traditional fish restaurants there and watching the sunset on Sultanahmet from one of the “tea gardens” in Kadiköy-Moda is definitely something not to miss after a tiring day!
In close vicinity of our flat, you’ll find two supermarkets, a bakery and a delicious pastry shop.
We’ll tell you all you need to know to travel around easily in Istanbul, where to eat the best baklavas in town, where to taste delicious but cheap Turkish food in Beyoğlu or even where you might listen to traditional Turkish music. In short, we’ll try to offer you much more than a room to rent so that you make the most of your holiday in Istanbul.
Please note that from the European side of Istanbul or Kadiköy, it’s very easy to come back to our place until midnight. But if you intend to enjoy Istanbul night life fully, it would be wiser to book a place on the European side.
