About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 5

This apartment is in an elegant 19th century building only 100m away from iconic Galata Tower. The whole building was refurbished in late 2011 and is managed by us, so we are able to keep the lovely original marble staircase and communal entrance hall in very good repair. There is one apartment on each of four floors.

The streets below are atmospheric with small, trendy boutiques and cafe-restaurants, yet are quiet and residential at night. Galata's pedestrianised area is just around the corner with its lively pavement cafes and restaurants plus all the buzz of this bohemian district. You'll quickly feel part of neighborhood life in all its character.

The apartment building is only 2 minutes walk from Sishane metro station, 1 minute walk from Tünel funicular and a downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 5 minutes walk up the hill.

The apartment's original panelled front door opens into a spacious, central hallway. Double doors to the right lead into the bright and comfortable living room, with a stylish circular dining table and cosy seating area, including two sofas and an armchair.

There are two good-sized double bedrooms, each with high quality crisp white linens. One bedroom has a double bed and one has twin beds that can be put together if required. The kitchen is a practical size with a small breakfast table. It's well-equipped with gas hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There’s one roomy, full sized shower room plus a second small loo. The apartment is 80 m2 in total, light and bright with large windows and high ceilings.

Many original architectural details have been kept and some of the walls have exposed bricks, giving a cosy atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate four people and the large sofa-bed in the living room can manage one more.

Guest Access:
Guests will have the complete privacy of the entire apartment.

The Neighbourhood:
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.

Getting Around:
Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a few minutes walk away. The famous Istiklal Avenue is around 5 minutes stroll. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 20 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 10 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 15 minutes.

There are many taxi ranks around and some secure car parks too.

Interaction with Guests:
This is a small Turkish-British family project. Julia and Tarkan used to live in Istanbul then Singapore and are now balancing life between England and Istanbul. If we're in Istanbul during your stay we'd love to meet you.

Your questions and booking will be handled by us wherever we are. When you arrive in Istanbul Tarkan’s wonderful family and/or our friendly team will welcome you to your apartment, give you the keys and explain about practicalities and the neighbourhoods.

We’ll all help you as much as you need and we're always only a phone call or email away.
