Condo/Apartment
Our apartment is in a well-kept historic building very close to Galata Tower. It's attractive and comfortable with architectural details. The street is full of neighbourhood character yet quiet at night, with Şişhane Metro only 2 mins walk away. We also offer a selection of 'experiences' with our local guides, to help you build your own genuine and memorable perspective on the city. The apartment is in an elegant 19th century building only 100m away from iconic Galata Tower. The streets below are atmospheric with small, trendy boutiques and cafe-restaurants, yet are quiet and residential at night. Galata's pedestrianised area is just around the corner with its lively pavement cafes and restaurants plus all the buzz of this bohemian district. You'll quickly feel part of neighborhood life ...Our apartment is in a well-kept historic building very close to Galata Tower. It's attractive and comfortable with architectural details.

Galata's pedestrianised area is just around the corner with its lively pavement cafes and restaurants plus all the buzz of this bohemian district. You'll quickly feel part of neighborhood life in all its character. The apartment building is only 2 minutes walk from Sishane metro station, 1 minute walk from Tünel funicular and a downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 5 minutes walk up the hill. The apartment's original panelled front door opens into a spacious, central hallway. Double doors to the right lead into the bright and comfortable living room, with a stylish circular dining table and cosy seating area, including two sofas and an armchair. There are two good-sized double bedrooms, each with high quality crisp white linens. One bedroom has a double bed and one has twin beds that can be put together if required. The kitchen is a practical size with a small breakfast table. It's well-equipped with gas hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There’s one roomy, full sized shower room plus a second small loo. The apartment is 80 m2 in total, light and bright with large windows and high ceilings. Many original architectural details have been kept and some of the walls have exposed bricks, giving a cosy atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate four people and the large sofa-bed in the living room can manage two more. Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a few minutes walk away. The famous Istiklal Avenue is around 5 minutes stroll. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 20 minutes by public transport or 25 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. There are many taxi ranks around and some secure car parks too.More
