This unit provides you the comfort of a hotel room at an introductory price. This is part of our Sultanahmet Gardens complex. Clean, comfortable and very peaceful. With good and fast wifi. You have access to your own little garden.
We are just on the historical sea walls of Istanbul. 10 minutes walk from the main attractions such as Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and the Topkapi Palace. The unit is conveniently accessible by tram, train and cab. While you are in the middle of history, you are away from the hustle of the restaurants and shops. You can easily walk to supermarkets and affordable cafes as well as top restaurants.
Our guests have access to a complimentary phone line with 10 TL credit during their stay. This they can use to contact us 7/24 as well as call friends and make reservations. We also offer a complimentary android tablet in case you don't bring your own laptop. The unit is next to the garden and our guests are privileged to enjoy the evening drinking a cup of tea.
We greet our guests as they arrive and make sure everything is ok as they settle. Then we give them info about the surroundings and the history of the area. Our guests are free to call us during their entire stay and get tips on where to shop, where to eat and what to see. If you want to argue with the cab driver, just call us, hand the phone to the driver and we'll take care of the rest for you :) Our entire family speaks English, me and my brother we speak German.
You'll be located at the palace point, where the first Byzantine Palace was built and later the Ottomans founded their capital and built the Topkapi Palace. My family has been living at the same spot for the last 120 years and our neighbours, the Cagaloglus have been living here for the last 400 years. This is one of the last remaining neighborhoods in the Sultanahmet area.
You can access the Sultanahmet and Çemberlitaş tram stations by 10 mins walking. Similarly you can access the bus by 5 mins walking. The ferries are about 10 mins by car or 3 stops by tram.
We can provide you airport transfer through our transfer partner from either airport, if you ask for it. Similarly there are private shuttles and joint shuttles leaving to the airports. The return trips are cheaper since it doesn't involve the waiting. We can book you the tickets if you let us know in advance. Cabs to/from Ataturk airport cost about 40 TL. Don't take a cab from Sabiha Gokcen. Take the bus to Taksim followed by a cab or tram.
This is part of a garden complex. We rent out 4 more units in the area with different properties: sea view, unit with kitchen and multiple bedrooms etc. This is more of an individual unit for the traveller who wants a budget stay with WiFi, clean and comfortable hotel style room and maximum silence.
The room is at the entrance floor and easily accessible by wheel chair. We have a wheelchair and walker available.
We provide you with an IstanbulCard, the card used at subways, busses and ferries in Istanbul. It has 10 TL in it. We ask you to use it and leave it at the same credit for our next guest.

Tansel is extremely helpful, nice and punctual. Absolutely made our time in Istanbul very easy and very fun! The room was very clean and comfortable. Would recommend this host to anyone!! A++ 10/10
This was a great place to stay, clean and close to some of the main attractions! Tansel was an excellent host and had a cell phone and metro card ready for use. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place!
Tansel est une personne attentionnée qui cherche à ce que votre séjour se déroule au mieux. Il est à l'écoute et disponible. Le logement est calme & propre, sa localisation est idéale pour découvrir la partie ouest de la ville. Je recommande vivement cet endroit, Tansel est un hôte de qualité.
Great location, and great value for money.
It is basic accomodation but very clean, and quiet. Tansel is a very good host who ensures you have an enjoyable stay. He even lends you a cellphone to be able to call and text him (or call a restaurant) so that your own cellphone bill does not go throught the roof! :)
Definitely stay here! Highly recommend! Tamale was wonderful, helpful, and accommodating. The place is warmer and feels like home much more than in the photos. Very clean. Great stay!
Lovely Room and wonderful host. Well prepared host with maps, Istanbul Transit card and even a local phone so that you can call him anytime/anyplace for assistance. There was also a tablet PC provided for internet access for those without a laptop.
There were some problems with the wireless network which was informed and fixes were being done and informed within the day.
Location is a bit in a corner, but it is actually very near to the main sights of Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, approx. 5-10 minutes walk if you know the short cut.
Tansel also waited for me to arrive and put my luggage in the room even though I arrived very early in the morning.
5 ***** Introduction to Istanbul. :D Thank you!! Tansel!
Tansel gave us a very warm welcome, were very helpful and had even stocked the flat with some drink, celular phone, subway card for our arrival - a very pleasant surprise.
The flat itself is beautiful - just as shown in the pictures and very comfortable. It is perfectly located for sightseeing and just a few steps from the Basilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Topkapi Palace.
We had a relaxing, enjoyable stay in this place. We would recommend Tansel's flat for any visit to Istanbul.
Tansel was very helpful from the moment we've arrived until the day we left for Istanbul. He was very accommodating and the place was very clean, just like in the advertisement. We were very happy and will certainly come back for another trip!
Good experience with a helpful host and a simple, clean place in a convenient location. Thank you!
A very nice and comfortable place to stay! A historical center of Istanbul, 5 min walk to Sultanahmet and Aia Sofia, also plenty of restaurants, shops and even a hamam ) The apartment was very cozy and bright. Although we had been arriving in the middle of the night Tansel had met us and gave all necessary instructions to our taxi driver. Best location for those who love quite places and walking around beautiful streets.
