We decided to book this apartment because of great reviews. But I have no idea who wrote that reviews. There are for sure some great points like good location, a lot of space, jacuzzi on the basement floor, comfy bed. That’s all. Then come the bad sides. First of all, this apartment is not suited for renting during the winter...

We have stayed 3 nights at Studio (50 m2) then 2 nights at 1-Bedroom (55 m2 Sea View). Both offer good value (fast internet, quick response from the manager, good mattress) for the money and the location is superb. However studio located on the ground floor is extremely noisy especially in the middle of night. For example, groups checking out...

Very impolite personnel over the phone. Not a place I would stay paying money and being disrespected. I wanted to book a suite and the impolite guy over the phone insisted for me to send an email to give me a price. Total Losers! That is not service.

This apartment is in a fantastic location, close to trams, restaurants, sights and the terrace has the best views - much better than most hotels in Istanbul for a great price. 65 steps up to the fifth floor (we stayed in One bedroom SeaView Apartment at top of the building with a luxurious terrace) is the only price to pay....

This apartment is in an ideal location, right near loads of shops, restaurants and bars. Also very close to public transportation, although walking to the major sites of the Old City and Taksim Square is possible too.. It's well appointed and comfortable as well. The only drawback for us was the construction next door. The construction noise continued well into...

The flat is in a great part of town. It's near a busy bit of the more modern part of town but off set enough so that you don't hear the commotion when inside. There are loads of placs to eat and lots of trendy places to grab a drink within a few minutes walk. There are also plenty of...

We just returned from our stay at Balkon Residences in Istanbul. This apartment hotel is located very close to the Galata Tower and right in the heart of Beyoglu. It could not have been a better location for everything Istanbul. Close to the subway that takes you down to the water and fish restaurants and tram to Old Istanbul. Hakan,...

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.

“Lower floors perhaps better for those not used to climbing stairs...but in Istanbul, climbing stairs and walking is an everyday activity.”
