The Space

Located at the heart of the Historical Peninsula, you'll be staying near the Great Byzantine Palace, on the sea walls themselves with the view of the Sultans. The house is at walking distance to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace and all the main attractions. You'll live and experience the old Istanbul in the comfort of your own house.

This fairly big air-conditioned bedroom is located at 3rd floor level. The terrace has a full view of the Bosphorous entrance and the garden downstairs. We offer two double-beds and a comfortable pull-out sofa, a shower and WC which are on the same floor. Wireless internet is included. You'll also have access to the 9000 sqft garden, in case you would like to catch a peacefull moment. There is free indoor parking for your car as well.

The unit is 35 mins to the airport and accessible by subway/trolley.

  • We had a very good time in Istanbul - it is a fantastic city! The apartment is located very close to the top highlights in the old city center: Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque and there are good restaurants near by. Thank you for your hospitality.

  • Ce fut un séjour très agréable, avec une vue superbe sur la mer.
    Accueil très chaleureux, la famille est toujours attentive à nos besoins.
    Appartement situé à quelques minutes de la Mosquée bleue et de Sainte-Sophie, quartier très agréable.
    A recommander !

  • Die Vorabinfos in der E-Mail waren sehr hilfreich und haben dem Taxifahrer geholfen, das Appartement zu finden. Der Raum selbst ist groß wie beschrieben, die Aussicht wunderschön trotz der recht lauten Schnellstraße vor dem Haus und die Gastgeber sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Zum Geburtstag gab es einen Blumenstrauß für mich!
    Die Treppe in den 3. Stock ist sehr schmal ohne Geländer, die Gastgeber halfen bereitwillig bei der Gepäckbeförderung. Das Duschbad ist minimalistisch, zwei Tage gab es warmes Wasser nur auf Zuruf. Die große Katzenfamilie im Haus ist auch im 3. Stock noch wahrzunehmen.
    Entgegen der Beschreibung wird ein Frühstück nicht mehr angeboten, allerdings versorgte uns Taners Mutter mit Tee, Wasser und kleinen Snacks, so dass wir im Appartement frühstücken konnten.

    Ein großer Vorteil ist die Nähe zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten, Restaurants, Bazaren und sonstigen Highlights, die man fast alle zu Fuß erreichen kann. Alles in allem ein gelungener Aufenthalt !

  • Staying at Taner's made the trip. His family was so friendly and generous with their time that we felt as if we were visiting relatives. The enclosed terrace is lovely for breakfast or an afternoon nap. Taner was more than happy to make recommendations, walk us around the neighborhood and generally ensure that we enjoyed our weekend in Istanbul. The accomodations are minimalistic; but when I asked to cook oatmeal for breakfast, his mother found a hot plate, cooking pan and bowl for me to use in my room. I've been to Istanbul 3 times and twice stayed in a hotel. For an authentic experience, I would absolutely recommend staying at Taner's. Enjoy Istanbul!

  • Un séjour des plus agréables dans cet appartement simple mais confortable. La terrasse couverte offre une vue splendide sur la mer de Marmara. La famille Kaya est très accueillante et toujours attentive à nos besoins. Merci pour tout. Nous vous recommanderons à nos amis.

  • Taner and his parents are absolutely charming. They made our stay in Istanbul a greater experience than if we had been left to figure it out by ourselves. Taner was such a great host with extremely good taste in restaurants! His knowledge about Istanbul is broad, and he was very happy to share it with us. Our accommodation was comfortable, light and airy with wonderful views out to sea. The location is perfect being only a short walk to the major sights of the old city. We loved it and are already planning a return trip! Highly recommended. Thank you Taner and we look forward to seeing you and your lovely family again! Annabel and Georgia

  • I stayed at the place for 8 nights in late May 2013.

    The location is near to the Blue Mosque. There are restaurants and small markets nearby as well. The place is spacious. The views of the water are great. The place is on the top floor, providing privacy.

    The deck is of great size.

    I was greeted by Taner and his father. In the small refrigerator, there were four small bottles of water and some sweets.

    I wore earplugs and was not bothered by the noise.

    The furnishings are rather sparse. The 2 twin beds are serviceable; the mattresses could have been more cushiony. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor, smelling like poultry. The mattresses and the bathroom odor were the 2 things of my stay that I did not like.
