Property description

kumru apartment is on the first floor an elegant 19th century building less than a minute walk from the beautiful Galata Tower. The building has an original marble stairwell with stained glass windows and the apartment is a freshly decorated recent renovation. It backs onto a courtyard garden and so has a lovely peaceful feel to it.

There are three good-sized double bedrooms, two with double beds and one with twin beds that can be put together if required. The kitchen is stylishly simple and spacious, with a breakfast table and courtyard garden view. It’s well-equipped with a gas hob, gas oven, fridge freezer, and dishwasher. The living room is large and comfortable with lots of light and there’s a separate dining area. The apartment has one full size shower room and is 110 m2 in total with high ceilings throughout.

Original panelled doors, wooden sash windows and floorboards have all been retained, giving a gracious yet cosy atmosphere. The apartment comfortably accommodates six to seven people.

Car: Not Necessary

Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner. No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.

Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a couple of minutes’ walk away. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 15 minutes by public transport or 25 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 20 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 25 minutes.
