We spent one week in this appartement and had a very good time. Only a few steps awy from the Galata- Tower, we were immediately in the middle of big city life.
The appartment is in an old building, nice and functional. Two bedrooms are big, the third is really small without window. The equipment is basic but ok.
It's good value for money.
Susann and family from Kiel Germany
This is an extremely well appointed spacious 3 bed roomed flat in a wonderful location , minutes from the Galata Tower and the Galata Bridge. It was also clean and quiet. Good heating system - we were there over Christmas and New year! The booking admin was efficient and the flat hand over/departure arrangements all went according to plan. Tarkan (the owner I think) is local and available ('we aim to respond within a couple of hours' - and they did) and was extremely pleasant and went out of his way to try to help us. There were no hidden extras.Highly recommended.
