About this listing
Brand new, stylish apartment with 2 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms near Tunel Sq, Beyoglu. Ideal for 2 couples, visiting with kids or a third couple. Literally few steps away from Istiklal Street, Galata Tower, Sishane Metro, Tram and also Soho House.
This recently renovated brand new apartment is placed on the 3rd floor of the elegant 19th century building with no lift, bright whole day having 2 facades for light.
While creating the main story about the decoration with the reputable renovation architect together, we wanted to create an apartment that will provide the residents and their kids, who prefer an urban lifestyle - active, pragmatic, trendy but also ensuring all the elements required for the comfort of a quiet residential life. Hopefully you will experience the same.
Apartment is designed for 4+2 people. The living room is big for 6 people to socialise during the day. And at night when resting is required after the long day in the tiring city, the queen size sofa-bed is good for the 3rd couple, the single or maybe for the kids.
One of the 2 bedrooms have a full en-suite bathroom for more privacy. The other bedroom has more space and unique designed furnitures to balance the jealousy between the 2 couples.
The Second full Bathroom is for the private use of the second couple or to be shared for if there are more than 4 guests. This common bathroom includes a hidden room behind the mirror, equipped with a water tank, washing machine and a dryer, all for the guests seamless comfort.
The compact kitchen is good for cooking most of the quick dishes and the grill+microwave helps you for when rushing one spot from the other in the chaotic city life. Table could be unfolded and total 6 eat all together. Or why not to use the coffee table for dinner ?
All the furnitures chosen specifically with the Architect's and the owner's common taste, some designed and produced exactly in specific sizes for the needs, some designed by famous artist-designers such as dresser, coffee table, chairs, mirror etc. You will see no items from Ikea at this apartment.

Arrival and Departure Time
I am very flexible with the check in times. However, letting me know your arrival and departure times - preferably before the booking or right after - is crudential for an easy check-in and your comfort.
I do not find fair, charging the guests extra for non-working hours arrivals. But if you are coming at the challenging hours, letting me know the exact details and requesting a late/early check in is mandatory which requires planning in advance. Taking the private shuttle is highly recommended to avoid more complicated transfers with more possible delays.
My check-in/out times are flexible in order to provide the longest stay possible at the apartments but only if there is no check-in/out the same day. Me, by getting in touch with all, it's possible to arrange the processes and the cleaning in between seamlessly.
During the stay :
On the contrary of the most other airbnb apartments, this apartment is not specifically designed for short term, placed in the respected building and neighbourhood. You'll have cool, modern and open-minded neighbours with even more flexibility to visitors, however, all the residential rules still apply such as silence etc.
The number of person staying or visiting should not exceed the number in the booking confirmation during the stay.
For any kind of event to be organised in the apartment including gatherings, small parties, birthday parties, special dinners/invitations etc, should be requested in advance with all details. No further arrangements are allowed respectfully according to the regulations of the residence management.
Hi, I am sales and marketing professional, worked around 15 years for global corporates at the international level. Spent enough time in many countries being a guest, understood how diverse cultures define hosting. So I know what new comers expect to know in a city or country.
I live in Galata/Karakoy/Beyoğlu for the last 10 years and quit the corporate life, started hosting guests to my apartments in the district.
I rent/buy apartments, decorate according to my own pleasure, move in and live for a while. Then finally start hosting guests after I am convinced that everything is finely tuned.
Thanks to all guests who has dropped a positive feedback so I was recognised as a "superhost" by airbnb.
I enjoy windsurfing, travelling and dining around the globe when I find the time. I never say no for good wine, parties and new tastes. Member of Soho House (Seven) and Cercle-D'oirent
