Istanbul house description

Our house, Blue, has 2 separate units which can be rented either separately by smaller groups or in combination by our guests with large families.
At the top of the page, there is a tab for each unit. So you can easily switch between the two.

LOCATION:If you are seeking the perfect old town location as a base for exploring the magnificent city of Istanbul, it would be difficult to find a better location. It is located just off the top of Küçük Ayasofya, with the nearest tram station in Cemberlitas just a 5 minute-walk away. All the great attractions including Sultanahmet- the Old City, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are within a 5-minute walking distance. The Grand Bazaar is only 5 minutes away on foot while the Spice Market is two tram stops away from the nearest tram station.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  The location of the property is great for those who want to stay in the Old Town and be close to all the major sightseeing spots such as the blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Grand Bazaar and the Yerebatan Cistern. The street the house is on is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood away form nightclubs and bars. There are several small hotels on the same street. Within a five-minute walk, you get to the Sultanahmet square and the Cemberlitas tram stop. Also, the property is really close to the sea for those who like going jogging or just walking by the sea. Eminönü is only 3 stops away and that's where you take the boat to take a Bosphorus tour.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Being involved in it from its very first stages to its last has been a very exciting experience for me. This has given me the chance to decide on the designs of everything- from the shape of the balcony rails to the kitchen cabinet designs. We had all the woodwork done by our team of carpenters. We have paid special care and attention to details that make the decoration unique. For example, we wanted to use a lot of design pieces; both lamps and furniture instead of mass produced ones because we believe they are what gives a house its character. Most of the wooden furniture was designed by my father who had them made by hand. Also, we have come up with lamp designs and got them made using natural materials such as log slices, ropes and branches. We have also used the famous Iznik tiles in the decoration because of their beauty and importance in the history of the Ottoman Empire. we wanted all this to be nice little surprises to our guests.
