My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay in this very comfortable and extremely roomy apartment. All amenties were as stated and all in very good condition. The owner, who was only a phone call away, was very helpful with advice and recommendations for interesting excursions. A flight of steps at the entrance of the apartments takes you down to the street below with a 5 minute walk to the tram stop. On the way you pass the butcher, a greengrocer, a supermarket and a number of small cafes. The tram, for a fee of 2 Turkish Lira will take you, across the Galata Bridge to all the historical sites in the old Istanbul including the Grand Bazaar. Alternatively leaving the apartment a 5 minute walk will take you up to Taksim Square, the commercial centre of modern Istanbul. Also the famous pedestarian concourse, Istikal Caddasi, commences its 3 kiliometer downhill run to the Galata Tower from the Square. There are many excellent restaurants, bars and cafes in the surrounding Cihangir and Beyoglu areas, all within walking distance from the apartment. We strongly suggest taking the tram to Eminonu and picking up the Kadakoy ferry and enjoy a fantastic authentic Turkish meal at the Ciya Restaurant for a very reasonable cost. Coming back to the apartment after a full day of sightseeing and enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the view of one of the most amazing waterways in the world is an end to a perfect day.
If you want to stay in Istanbul in a quite local neighbourhood but just 5 /10 minutes from all the transport you need to visit all parts of Istanbul (trams, boats, buses) and surronded by interesting neighbourhoods and bustling, vibrant shopping, eating, drinking then this is the place. Better still it has one of the best views you could ask for, excellent facilities and an owner as helpful and friendly as you could possibly wish for.
a perfect place for a stay in Istanbul. We never had a better view, more friendly host and better service before!
We stayed in this apartment for 10 days. What a pleasure! Unlike many rentals, this is a fully equipped home. Being in a local neighbourhood provides you with an authentic view of life in Istanbul that you won't get in a more touristy area. It's in a hilly part of town, so you have to be able to do some hills and stairs, yet you're a 5-10 minute walk to Taksim and very close to taxis, the tram and the funicular so it's super easy to get around. This is as close as you'll get to living in Istanbul without signing a lease. And that view; it's breathtaking. You can see everything from cargo ships and sailboats to tankers, ferries, submarines and even seagulls flying past the living room window. We never turned on the (flat screen) TV once. If you get the chance to stay here, I'd grab it. We wouldn't just recommend this to friends or family, we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.
