A delightful tasteful place to stay. Come and stay in Balat Fener for an authentic experience of Turkish life. On the Shores of the Golden Horn, it's only a 5 minute walk down the hill to the water and original Byzantine walls. In the heart of Istanbul's old districts and one of the 7 hills of the Old city, the area is changing as its ancient homes, churches, mosques and synagogues go through gentrification, guided by UNESCO and EU programs.. The right choice for the discerning traveller. On the ground floor of a listed historical building in the heart of Istanbul's Old town. All the mod cons including air con, central heating, well equipped kitchen (including full oven) TV/DVD, separate bathroom (with power shower) comfortable double bed, small dining area and sofa/sitting area; On...A delightful tasteful place to stay.

All the mod cons including air con, central heating, well equipped kitchen (including full oven) TV/DVD, separate bathroom (with power shower) comfortable double bed, small dining area and sofa/sitting area; On hilly cobbled streets, the twin neighbourhoods of Balat Fener were once the home of Istanbul's minorities. Here you'll see old Greek, Jewish, and Armenian homes, and some of the cities oldest Synagogues and Churches. The area, because of so many national treasures, was recently declared a world heritage sight by UNESCO and has a mixture of older more conservative residents and more modern new comers living in their restored houses. Your host's are local British/Turkish residents on hand to give any information or help if required. The area is loved by photographers and film makers so don't be surprised to come across film crews as you wander around. The street were you will stay was featured in the last Bond movie 'Sky fall'.More
