A lovely textile handcraft and antique-filled sea view room in our home, with a double bed, day bed and seating area, shared bath and kitchen.
Our fishing village of Samatya is 'real' Turkish neighborhood, with no tourists or carpet touts. There is a great selection of reasonably priced good restaurants, bars, grocers, bakeries and a huge farmer's market each Saturday, all just a few steps away. Ancient history around each corner with monasteries, churches, mosques and the fortress of Yedikule and Theodosian Walls a short stroll away along our sideside park.
Easiest of all, take the frequent - every 5 minutes - bus to Sultanahmet and Sirkeci, only 10 minutes away. Or the nearby new M2 Metro to Taksim in 20 minutes. Then back to Samatya for a peaceful night, as you wish!
Note: we are happy to offer breakfast or laundry service for a small fee.
There are others living nearby, so please be considerate about noise, especially after midnight! Smoking is okay, though we ask you to please have windows open or air out the room so the smoke does not linger. We will give you keys to the street door as well as the apartment, to be returned at checkout please. You are welcome to use our terrace upstairs - just ask! Please note: our "other" pet is a parrot who loves people and happily stays most the time in his large cage.
