About Julia and Tarkan
We offer sensitively renovated historic apartments with elegance and character, in the fascinating district of Beyoglu: the heart of Istanbul. We're a small Turkish-British family project. Julia and Tarkan have led international lives based in Istanbul then Singapore, most recently balancing between England and Istanbul. Along the way we've raised our son, now 12 years old, across the cultures as we've steadily grown our other baby - this holiday apartment project which we now run full-time. We understand the makings of a great city-break stay and we try our very hardest to deliver it to our guests in Istanbul. Your questions and booking will be handled by us and then, on arrival, Tarkan's family and our team, with their natural Turkish hospitality, will welcome you to your apartment.
Why Julia and Tarkan chose Beyoğlu
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 12 minutes by public transport or 20 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.
The apartment is perfectly located, just below Galata tower. The only drawback is that cars cannot come to the property, so you will have to drag your suitcases over the Galata place. It’s not a big deal though.
The apartment is in a walk up in the first floor. It’s an old building with the classic tall walls.
There are some convenient stores nearby and some fruit and vegetable stores.
Tons of restaurants and bars, which makes for busy surroundings but the apartment is surprisingly quiet.
There is a mosque nearby, so you do get the call for prayer around 5am.
Overall we had a lovely stay and the manager was very responsive!

Dear Juan, we're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Hope to host you again in the future. Warm regards from Istanbul.
We absolutely loved the place. It's right by the Galata Tower, close by are some interesting shop , bars, restaurants and just a short walk over the bridge to see the sights. It was amazing sitting on the roof at the end of the day with a drink looking out over the water.
Just next to the Galata tower this beautiful appartment has everything thats necessary at a great price!
Will go again!!!
