The newly and trendily renovated flat locates@Cihangir Cukurcuma one of the lovely, oldest and hip neighborhood of Beyoglu; preferred area for foreigners as Cukurcuma is a charming and endlessly fascinating area in itself and more of a ‘real neighborhood’ than say Sultanahmet, with kids playing on the street, local vendors plying their wares, lots of cats. The street is rapidly gentrifying, and while residential, is very near coffee shops, stores, street food and cafes. It’s an easy 10-15min downhill walk to the Tophane T1 tram station to all the Sultanahmet (tourist) sights.
It is the lovely, oldest and hip neighborhood of Beyoglu with its local stores, cafes, art galleries and antique shops as well as being very close to Taksim.
Istiklal Street (which the best shopping street but also the very best night life street), Karakoy, Kabatas and Galata are basically at walking distance.
Around the apart the area is lively, friendly and safe and totally quiet at the same time. Just a block or two uphill and you're in the action of the city, lively with seemingly infinite food choices and bars.
there are 2 supermarkets close by. One is called ORKA very close, a local one, delicious vegetables and fruits coz they bring their own stuff from Anatolia, very cheap as well. Just 2mins by the house. Other one is a megamarket called Carrefoursa a bit expensive, but you can find all the export cool stuff there. Also fruits, vegetables, cheese, books, dozens kind of breads and anything that comes to your mind. Its also just 4mins or so. apart from the supermarkets there are loads of little shops you can buy daily stuff.
HOW TO REACH THE FLAT
from Ataturk airport either you can take a taxi to reach the flat (its 20-25 mins and costs not more than 50 liras-20-25 euros) or you can take the shuttle from the airport (called havatas) and then take a taxi from Taksim. (will not cost more than 3 euros to reach the house)
after you make the booking i will send you a useful guide book which has a lot of dining and to see options. at the very end of the guide book, there will be the open address and the detailed definition of the house for the taxi driver.

Great flat, very well located
Ceren's flat is very well located in the Beyoglu area, close enough to all of the happening places (restaurants, bars, etc.) yet it is located in a quiet residential street. This is a big bonus as Istanbul is a vibrant = noisy city :-)
The flat is very well equipped and we found everything we needed for a perfect stay. The view is great and we never tired of it!
Ceren is very helpful and made sure throughout the stay that we were not wanting for anything. Her suggestions and knowledge of the area are great and we definitely recommend following her suggestions.
We came for a week with our 1-year-old daughter and we had a great stay in ceren's flat which had everything we needed. The flat is really suitable for a couple with one child. 2 separate bedrooms, a washing machine, everything you need in the kitchen, close to supermarkets, very quiet and in a very nice area of Istanbul and close to the tram station.
Ceren was always answering any questions prior to arrival ad was very quick and efficient. she was around to welcome us to the apartment, showed us around and gave a couple of tips. The apartment is nicely decorated and we actually did not spend time in there to enjoy it. The view from the living area is amazing.
Ceren's flat was perfect for our short 4-day-trip to Istanbul. Read why: Ceren gave us a detailed list of recommendations in advance, from restaurants and bars to sightseeing tips. A lot of them just within a few minutes walking distance. We can definitely recommend to visit the "Holy Cafe" nearby (2 min. walk) for a very delicious breakfast. After arrival, you find a lot of maps and brochures mostly in English in the flat.
Regarding transport, the Appt. is quite easy to reach. Taxis are everywhere, and with a short walk both Taksim square (lots of public transport incl. metro and Airport buses) and Tophane (T1 tram) can be reached, too.
The flat itself is very nice, from our point of view it's perfect for max. 4 persons. The large bedroom has a double bed, and the smaller a single bed for one. The couch in the living room could serve as a bed for a 4th person. I traveled with a friend of mine, which means, 2 persons find a really comfortable and large space to stay there.
Ceren was a very friendly, helpful and therefore perfect host. Not only in terms of our questions and needs - she also provided drinking water (you shouldn't drink it from tap) and coffee pads. The pictures of the flat provide a very good insight, and the view from the living room is really great. E.g. you can see Galata Tower, one of the city's landmarks. WIFI was available without any problems, as mentioned in the description. All in all, a fine spot to stay and to explore Istanbul for both sightseeing and nightlife purposes ;-) .
Great plan !! The appartment is amazingly cosy, and is located right in the hip area of Istanbul, and very close to the turistic areas (Sultanhamet is 15-20 mn away, no more). Ceren is a great host, always willing to help. When we come back in the city, I hope it will still be available.
Very nice flat in a lively neighborhood. With 5 minutes walking (uphill :-) ) you are in the center of Taksim. Ceren was a great host, she helped me a lot, although I was too late contacting her, she arranged everything very well. She had tips for the city and made me feel at home. The apartment is clean and. All in all, a great stay! I do recommend!
Perfect trip at Ceren's flat. Perfect situation in the center of the city. Ceren is such a really helpful host, the flat is clean. My friend and i sharply recommend this flat for a trip in Istanbul!
