A loft house with a spectecular bosphorus view. Nothing between you and İstanbul. Photos tells it very well. Designed by an architecture and very special. There is one bedroom and a living room full with the panaromic İstanbul. Open kitchen with everything.
The house is 97 sqmt. There is a balcony in front of the living room facing the view.
You will be an İstanbul fan. 5 min. to tram, 5 min. to Kabataş boat, 10 min to Taksim. Very central but quiet.
Merci pour ce très beau séjour à Istanbul : l'appartement et la vue étaient vraiment fabuleux! Zarifi est une excellente hôtesse, très accueillante et toujours prête à aider!
My wife and I were deeply impressed by Zafiri's friendliness and helpfullness. She is a great host!
The apartment definitely lives up to our expectations, and the great view even excels the pictures.
As mentioned by others the building is situated halfway between Bosphorus waterfront and Taksim hill, so as soon as you leave the door you will find stairs either up or down. Take it as your personal workout session!
All in all a clear recommendation for everybody wanting to be close to Instanbul's hot spots and people who enjoy the special atmosphere of this flat.
Wow, what an incredible apartment.
Beautiful interior designed with a view of Istanbul that will capture your imagination.
Although true to form, the pictures cannot depict how breathtaking this apartment really is.
Located equidistantly between the water and Taksim Sq, you truly have the heart of Istanbul at your fingertips.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Zarifi was a great host, and very helpful. The apartment is as described, with a stunning view of the Bosphorus. The living area is large with a big comfy sofa, and access to satellite TV. The wifi worked great, and the washing machine and dryer were also really handy. At night, the lighting is a little dim, but you'll get an even better view of the city and the Bosphorus. The apartment is located near Taksim, and a short direct tram ride to historical sights. And like most of the Cihangir area, it's on top of a steep staircase climb - a great workout after eating all that delicious Turkish food!
Zarifi is a great host and most helpful, especially when the internet wasnt immediately available she came up with a viable solution, thanks
Zarifi is the ultimate host. Kind, attentive and very service orientated.
The view form the apartment if far better than the pictures.
but there are few problems:
No one mentioned the 241 stairs we had to clime from street level (171 to the building and 70 to the apartment). Also, the apartment is extremely dark at night (very few light fixtures and too many 'disco' special effects).

When I first joined airbnb, I wasn't thinking it would mean that much to me. Now I feel like I am totally involved in it. Getting to know new people, welcoming them, helping and guiding them in my local area is wonderful.
Like a big family :)
