The Space

Entire apartment for rent in a beautiful building right next to Galata Tower (Kuledibi/Galata). Four fully furnished bedrooms can sleep up to 7 people comfortably. 3 out of 4 bedrooms have a Bosphorus view. One room has a king size bed, one has a queen size bed, one has a single bed and one has a single bed but another single bed can be added if needed. Both the apartment building and the apartment itself are spectacular -- high ceilings, marble staircases, original hardwood floors, etc. All rooms have plenty of light and contain an antique wardrobe, an armchair, bed, and desk. Linens and towels come with the rooms. There is a fully-stocked kitchen -- with a washing-machine and dishwasher -- two living rooms, and a large (email hidden)e appartment is Northeast, so normally it has plenty of natural cool air, but if you want to have more silence you can always close the windows and switch on the two ceiling fans that the appartment has! There is wireless internet in the apartment and electric heating. The living room also has a view of the Bosphorus and there is a shared rooftop terrace with a view of the entire city including the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn, the Galata Tower, the Ayasofiya and the Blue Mosque.

The apartment is in a very central location. It is 2 minutes from the metro and bus lines (Şişhane), 3 minutes from Tunel/Istiklal, 4 minutes from the ferry and tram (Karaköy). 15-20 minutes walk to Taksim square, Bosphorus, the Golden Horn, Sultanahmet and Ayasofya.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time in Istanbul and one main reason for it was the fantastic appartment. The amazing view from the roof top was one of the highlights of our stay. Alev was a very kind and helpful host. We will definitely come back!

  • This apartment is beautiful, very comfortable and spacious. The bathroom is big, the kitchen is well equipped and the roof has an exceptional view of the old city's skyline, the Bosphorus and the Galata tower. Its location is perfect, we walked everywhere. Alev is very nice, she recommended us her friend's restaurant which is very close and has the most delicious food and ambiance. We had a great time in Istanbul thanks to Alev, this apartment and the beautiful weather, cheers!

  • Alev's apartment is beautiful and easily housed 7 people. It's very centrally located - lots of nice shops, bars and restaurants nearby and only a short walk or tram to some of the sights. Alev gave us some great tips and was very helpful and the flat had everything we needed. I recommend for big groups looking for a fun time in Istanbul! Thank you Alev

  • Had a wonderful time staying at Alev's place. The location is amazing and the flat was so homey. She took the time to show us the apartment and even made reservations for dinner that night. Would happily recommend her place to anyone looking for a sizeable space in Istanbul.

  • Great location - we walked everywhere. Amazing rooftop - so atmospheric as dusk. Apartment was perfect for us and had that authentic feel. Alev was helpful in every way. Thanks!

    In more detail: This is an ideal location for exploring the city. The apartment is right next to the Galata Tower, on the European side, and you can reach the main bridge over the Bosphorus in 10 minutes, walking. On the other side you can easily make your way on foot to the Sultanahmed area with rich tourist pickings: Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, underground cisterns etc. The apartment is 4 floors up with no lift so not ideal if you have very heavy luggage or if anyone in your party has mobility difficulties, but it's worth the climb! The apartment is charming, looks just as it does in the photos, is clean, and everything works perfectly. We were a couple and 2 single adults and the size was just right for us, with plenty of room to sit around and read and chat. Locally there are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Our host was reliable and helpful and our arrival and departure went smoothly. I would definitely go back and spend another week in Istanbul at the same apartment - highly recommended.

  • Very beautiful, perfect spot and very nice place.

    November 2013
  • Amazing place to stay. I will definitely be back. Many thanks to Alev for creating a wonderful space from where to visit Istanbul.

    October 2013
  • The flat is beautiful - old fashioned but hugely charming and the terrace view is completely breathtaking. The beds were comfortable, and the shower worked well, and the flat was clean and well equipped. The location is brilliant, really perfect for everything and we all really loved it!

  • Alev was the perfect host and made our stay a very comfortable one. As soon as we arrived she gave us clear direction on how to find the apartment. She took the time to show us around the apartment and pointed out many of Istanbul's highlights. She even invited us to her friends new restaurant that just opened.

    The apartment is charming and very comfortable. It has lots of windows and even though the apartment hasnt got A/C you get a wonderful breeze from every room. The apartment is in a perfect location and in a walking distance to many of Istanbuls tourist attractions and public transports.

    The highlight of the place, is definately the rooftop terrace where you have amazing views over Istanbul and Bosphorus. We spent many evenings having a few pre-drinks before going out to the many bars / restaurants in the friendly neigbour-hood.

    Thanks Alev for a lovely stay, we will definately be back soon!

  • Wow, what can we say. Maybe one of the best apartments we've (email hidden) traveled the world with my group of friends and this was the coolest place we've stayed. Truly authentic and in the heart of Galata. Alev was a gracious host and provided everything we needed including great recommendations. The apartment itself is large and airy with great bedrooms. And the big kicker is the rooftop view might be the best on the city with Galata tower standing behind you. We will definitely be back.

After travelling a lot, and visiting and loving many cities, i decided to return and live at my hometown, Istanbul. And it is a decision that has not dissapointed me, since Istanbul offers you an every day charm, one not difficult at all to enter into and taste. Istanbul, the city that connects east with west , europe with asia , different cultures and religions, is impressing you all the time. “She” is mysterious and surprising in every corner, in every turn,in every step. You just let your self go and She guides you to the historical sites, She tickles your smell with all those different kind of spices, She is flirting with your appetite with all those delicious kinds of food, She is charming you with the mindnumbingly beatiful view of the Bosphorus and Golden Horn , touches you and wakes your senses with the thousand turkish baths. Additionally, there is the modern part of the city also, which never sleeps, the rythms of modern and traditional music are leading you to all night long parties, live music and dance! During the winter “She” will welcome you white like snow with those unique colors, in the palet of grey, purple and deep blue. During spring you will be charmed by all the smells of Istanbul, of flowers, spices,foods, famous sweets and those colorful images of Istanbul's sky. In summer time, “She” will welcome you with all thousands of openair places, with the refreshing view of the sea...because from every point in Istanbul your eyes can reach the sea. For Autumn Turkish people use the word “sonbahar” which means “last smell”, like the last sweet taste you have at your mouth after tasting something sweet and delicious... Whenever you will visit Istanbul, just let your your senses, your heart and your eyes open and let me guide you at my beloved city...let me lead you in a full-round trip of the senses, to travel like locals and feel, taste and see this unique city...you are always welcome!
