We stayed at Marti Apartments and they were so helpful! It was a little difficult to find at first but was nice and central and easy to get around. The staff were so helpful and booked out Anzac tour for us. I would definitely recommend staying at Marti Apartments

My parents have strict dietary requirements and hence the cooking hob was very important to us. On the first night the hob stopped working at 9pm just when we were cooking dinner. Called the manager, Adam on his... More

Stayed in May 2014 and was charged again in jan. 2015. They don't answer any emails so no way to notify them. Even though the hotel looks great stay somewhere else and save yourself a headache of disputing a charge!!!

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
