About This Listing
You will love this 4-storey town house in the middle of the city. Great for big groups of friends or families, as 10 people can stay comfortably.
Charming town house situated in the heart of historical Çukurcuma. The red façade and the flower ornamentations on the window sills defines the building (There is a twin house next door). The original iron front door opens onto the 100-year-old tiled entrance hall. The other floors are polished wood, steps are wooden. During its century old life, it has been used as a house, an antique shop and a restaurant. The building has wireless ADSL internet connection. There are air conditioners at every floor. Natural gas combi heater heats the house and water and provides natural gas for the cookers. There are fire extinguishers and fire blankets on each floor. Linens and towels are provided and changed every three days. Wireless and a diaphone buzzer is a standard in all our flats.

You are on Faikpasa Street. When you get out of the house, turn right and walk 200mt. downhill and on your right is Cezayir Street where there are cafes, restaurants and bars where they play live on weekends. Further down, you’ll come to Tophane. Along the main road is glass shops, Hisko - a restaurant serving home cooked meals- and art galleries. This road will take you eventually to the tram line connecting Kabatas (ferry and sea-bus port, funicular to Taksim are all in Kabatas) to the Old City, Sultanahmet area. Istanbul Modern Museum is also along this line. All the tourist attractions are along Eminonu (Misir Carsisi, Tahtakale)-Gulhane- Sultanahmet-Divanyolu-Beyazit tram stops. If you turn left when you get out of the house, and walk uphill for 700mt, you’ll come to Istiklal Street. Look left and you’ll see Demiroren Shopping Mall. A little further to the left is the Fish Market. You can find fish, flowers, spices, poultry, meat, deserts, bread and flour products, vegetables and fruits, alcohol, local delicatessen here. It is a haven for food lovers! If you want to eat out, Istiklal Street and side streets along Istiklal and Cihangir offer tens of choices.

Soner was very friendly and helpful organaising all kind of things to us. Apartment was quite OK, kitchen should have been bigger with a table. Apartment is very well situated but big minus is noise from the traffic and streets.
A great house in a great neighbourhood very centrally located. The roof terrace is beautiful and the house very comfortable and well equipped. The manager, Dilara , could not have been more helpful. We would certainly stay there again. Thanks for a great stay.
Perfecta ubicación y un barrio con mucho encanto.
La casa es fiel reflejo del anuncio. Perfectamente dotada.
En la planta baja, antes de acceder a la casa está la oficina del anfitrión donde nos han solventado todas nuestras necesidades, desde facilitarnos un servicio de shuttel hasta información turística. De trato formal, Sonner ha sido muy amable.
This house is truly fantastic! We were a group of 9 people and had the pleasure of staying here for a week. Taksim is nearby as well as Topahne Metro, this makes commute around the city real easy. The neighborhood also has a sweet little charm and the tiny cafes nearby is a good way to start of the day.
The House which takes the first,second and third floor is clean and cozy is finally topped of with a fantastic terrace from where you can faintly see the fabled domes.
The host never intruded but was always available if needed. Will definitely recommend this place to people visiting Istanbul.
