The flat is in a historical building situated in the Galata area close to Istiklal Avenue that takes you through the heart of Istanbul's commercial and entertainment Pedestrian Boulevard, leading to the famous Taksim Square.
Central for all travel connections. (i.e. 5 minutes walk to the conventional ferries, tramway and Şişhane subway station.)
Less than 10 minutes by tram to get to the old city (i.e. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, several historical turkish baths, Grand Bazaar)
2 minutes walk to Istiklal Avenue
10 minutes walk to Istanbul Modern Art Museum
10 minutes walk to the Spiced/Egyptian Bazaar
Neighborhood is safe, with lots of tourists during the day but not crowded like Taksim Square, and is exciting with its vibrant narrow streets to be discovered.
The apartment is very close to Galata Tower on a beautiful quiet street. Famous designers’ shops are located on the street, and it's often used as a site for filming commercials because it’s considered one of the most charming streets in Istanbul.
Museums (i.e. Istanbul Modern Art, Pera), exhibition galleries, large stores, restaurants, bars, food markets, mosques, churches, synagogues are all within walking distance.
The 3-bedroom apartment is situated on the second floor,
Building was constructed 150 years ago but newly restored.
It has atmosphere and some history. In a part of Istanbul that is somehow inbetween.
Not the distinguished upperclass-comfort-perfumesmelling goldclass, and not the conformity of new buildings.
Perfect heat insulation. Apartment doesn't have airconditioning however massive walls keep the apartment quite cold.
First room has a doublebed and a comfortable couch, second room has a doublebed and a mattress on the maltese balcony. (Galata glimpes from Maltese Balcony)
Each room measures 14 square meters size with 3.5 m. high ceilings. The flat is 120 square meters in total. With comfortable full-size beds, you'll sleep very well.
Second room has a doublebed and a drop down couch.
Third room has a doublebed and is attached to a bathroom.
There is one huge bathroom with a large tub and shower, plus one smaller bathroom.
You can chit-chat with your friends while you are cooking in the big kitchen, and eat in the lovely dining room.
Floors and ceilings are made of beautiful wood.
Fast ADSL connection and free wifi throughout the apartment..
Other Basic Amenities include dishwasher, hair dryer, quality house linens and towels, washing machine, iron and ironing board, fridge/freezer, and spring water.
I have been hosting foreigners for three years. If you have any special wishes please let me know and I will see what I can do.
House rules are pretty much simple and rational I would say. You should really feel like home but also respect the place you are accomodated in, meaning not kicking the doors and walls, not throwing things to each other, not breaking house staff. Keep it down after midnight.
Yes, other people are also living in the building.
Due to having an old flat and a wooden structure, as you can imagine the sound insulation is not perfect. That's why I'll ask you not to walk with 'high yield shoes' in the apartment
It is not usual to listen to the music loudly in the apartment.
