Located on a peaceful, tucked-away street in the middle of it all. This two bedroom apartment spans two floors and is extremely spacious.

And at the end of the day, you’ll sleep like a baby, thanks to the visco-spring mattresses on both luxurious king-size beds.


This flat is situated in the hip and trendy neighborhood of Cihangir. Home to intellectuals, artists, movie stars and international expats alike. Cozy cafes, hip restaurants and local shops can be found everywhere you look. Istiklal Street,Taxim, and the tram to the historic center are all within a short walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our host was waiting at the doorstep to welcome us at arrival. The flat was in perfect shape obviously the whole house has been newly renovated. We were thoroughly introduced to all the technical details ( including washing machine and dryer and central heating and Wifi). Beyoglu ist the part of istanbul to be. The historic part of Istanbul with the Topkapi, Hagia Sofia, is 10 to 15 turkish liras by cab and can easily be made by foot on a nice day. restaurants, supermarkets, bakery, bars and cafes are all within minutes walking distance. Atatürk Airport was 45 turkish liras by cab.

WONDERFUL Apartment in Quiet Area

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience renting from Kadir and staying in this apartment!! The reservation process was very easy. Kadir arranged a driver to take us to and from the airport, and his associate met us to get acquainted with the apartment when we arrived. She was extremely helpful--helping us understand the apartment ammenities as well as ideas for travling in Istanbul. The neighborhood was quiet yet close to great spots for meals, shopping, and transportation. The apartment itself was very nicely appointed--beautiful marble, comfortable bedding and furniture, spatious closets, and great appliances, including AC. It is everything as billed and more!!

We are a family from Germany with 2 small kids, and the property was very well suited for us.

It is on the ground and lower ground floor, where the lower ground floor has a large sliding door leading to a nicely decked outside area.

The access to the property is easy and there is space in the hallway to leave a baby stroller.

The decoration and feel is just like on the pictures, to which one should add that there is underfloor heating, which was very cosy given that during our last days in Istanbul it was quiet cold.

The beds are very comfortable and even the couch in the living room is amazing. My husband kept falling asleep on it at night.

Last but not least, we were pleasantly surprised by the service Kadir provided. He was never far away and responded promptly to our emails.

We would come back here and will recommend Kadir and the apartment to our friends.

Perfact flat, in a great city!

  • 5 of 5

It was definitely a great idea to pick this flat. Because we have a little kid, we spent more time in the flat then we would have spent normally. That's why, we were keen on having a nice location which would make us feel at home. Azure 1 was an excellent choice. It was very tastefully decorated and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped, obviously, the kind owners of the flat thought of many details which made our stay at Azure a very memorable one. Also the location of Azure is very central; vivid but still quiet at nights. It is close to everywhere, this is a very important aspect for a big city like istanbul. We also felt safe in the neighbourhood. We already decided to book this flat also for our next stay in istanbul.

Beautiful rental

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful, clean and in a quiet area close to everything. Our family stayed in the apartment for four night and found the place very comfortable. We would recommend this rental to anyone with impeccable taste and height standards. Owner/manager was very easy to work with and very helpful. Would rent again if in Istanbul.

Great apartment, location and customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start?? Arrived at the apartment shortly before midnight. Serdal met us there, showed us around, then took us to a market so we could get some supplies and walked us back to the apartment. At midnight! Who does that? Way 'above and beyond' in my book. He also gave us his cell # so we could call him with any questions etc. Which we did and he always answered and was extremely informative.

The apartment itself is fabulous. Very clean, tastefully decorated (not the usual 3 legged chairs and flowery offerings you usually find in rentals) and whats more really comfortable. Large beds, huge sofa etc. Our party had 2 couples and one small child and we had ample space and privacy. It was well equipped (hairdryer, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, cooking oil, spices etc). That's a big plus for me because its a big pain to have to go out and buy all that stuff, lug it home etc. Only thing it could do with is a freezer. The fridge is huge but we use a lot of ice in drinks so we had to buy ice every day instead.

The location is amazing. Its on a really quiet street but literally one block (steep) away is a little 'hub' of bustling shops, cafe's, bars, restaurants etc. There are two supermarkets right there also so you can stock up on whatever you need. We didn't have one bad meal in that area. Very nice and very reasonably priced. Alcohol is expensive but you know that going in. Going in that direction from the apartment its about a 10-15 (interesting, not boring) minute walk to Taxim Square and the beginning of Istiklal caddesi. (one of the worlds great streets).

In the other direction from the apartment you have a 10-15 minute (very steep) walk to the tram (which is by far the best way to get around). The tram drops you off at all the sightseeing places (Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosk, Grand Bazaar etc etc). The tram really is easy and everything is written in English. Obviously try and avoid rush hour though.

These guys arranged airport transfers also which were great.

Think that's it. Really can't say enough nice things. We travel a lot and haven't used a hotel in about 6 years. (Why would you confine yourself to one room, one bathroom and no kitchen?). The people at CAST were about as good as it gets and the apartment really was fantastic. Will definitely be staying there again.

Great apartment; great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (all young professionals in our 20s and 30s) had a great time at this apartment. It was spotless and extremely comfortable. Gary was great to deal with before we arrived and the on-site management was so accomodating. We did have a little mix-up about our arrival time, but luckily we had the phone number of the Cast Istanbul office and got let in within ten minutes. The kitchen was fully stocked and the apartment even came with a book that helped us figure out how to work the washer and dryer (since all the buttons were labelled in Turkish!). Highly recommend this place!!! Also Cihangir is a great neighborhood with lots of cute cafes and restaurants. It's also really close to the Istanbul Modern, which was one of our favorite places to visit.
