About this listing
This is the best apartment you could ask for!
If you're two people and like to visit Istanbul, this is the place to go.
Crib is available for kids between 0-6 years of age.
Extra single bed (80*190 cm sizes) is also available upon your request.
Reasonable price, clean, bright, well-located, well-appointed studio apartment!
100m from Galata Tower / Istiklal Caddesi
5 minutes walk to the Tophane tram station.
You will truly felt immersed in the city and the people. It's on a great, quiet street with lots of cool fashion boutiques and unique designers. The place itself is clean, and has slightly bosphorus view.
The tramvay, Tunel & old tram are all super close by, making it easy to escape home from the old city.
Your host is ready to make a short orientation to the area and make great local suggestions.
Apt is furnished with towels, clean bedding and functional WiFi. A grocery store is 5m away. Street is generally quiet with kids playing during the day.
It is located in Beyoglu, which is a fantastic point to start either sightseeing, shopping or partying at nights - and yet it is an absolutely quiet studio. There are several small cafés and restaurants nearby, also Istanbuls famous High Street "Istiklal" and the pretty Galata Tower, on top of which you have a magnificent view over the city. If you'd like to go out at nights, try the bars, restaurants and Babylon club which are just 5 mins away by foot. It is unbelievably quiet. You will sleep like a baby.
Neighborhood is safe, with lots of tourists during the day but not crowded like Taksim Square, and is exciting with its vibrant narrow streets to be discovered.
Museums (i.e. Istanbul Modern Art, Pera), exhibition galleries, large stores, restaurants, bars, mosques, churches, synagogues, groceries are all within walking distance.
1 bedroom apartment is situated on the first floor. Room measures 14 square meters size. A comfortable queen bed, free wifi, basic kitchenware
Other Basic Amenities include quality linens and towels, washing machine, fridge. Air conditioner for warming up&cooling.
House rules are pretty much simple and rational I would say. You should really feel like home but also respect the place you are accomodated in.
Please respect WC hygiene rules.
It is NOT a GAY friendly apartment.
I spent a week in this apartment with two friends in February 2015. The room is just as pictured on the website but was a bit small for three people. The apartment is located walking distance from all the most popular places in Istanbul. The apartment had great wifi and very hot water. Fatih was a great host and helped provide any information we needed. If you are looking for a room while you are visiting Istanbul I would recommend this one.
The listing was quite accurate and the apartment is located in probably the best location in town, in a quiet street close to Taksim
and the Galata Tower. Fatih Kaya was an outstanding and gracious host and did everything right to make the place comfortable and also was quite a helpful guide to Istanbul.
Appartement agréable et calme donnant sur une cour intérieure. Le vrai plus de cet appartement est son excellente situation entre la vieille et la nouvelle ville (juste à côté de la tour Galata)
Fathi est agréable et arrangeant.
Main take away: Fatih is a really great host. The apartment is in an amazing area--definitely stay here!
Fatih emailed us couple of days before our trip and asked us details. He arranged for a ride from the airport and we got in really comfortably on a rainy evening and he welcomed us to the apartment and directed us to what our jetlagged bodies wanted the most--good food around the corner. Upon request he also sent us a list of restaurant suggestions.
I studied abroad in Istanbul 6 years ago and I stayed in Beyoglu area but on the other side of Taksim. The Galata Tower area where this apartment is located is one of the best areas to stay in Istanbul if you are there for a week or less than a week because it cuts down travel time to museums and mosques (You can walk to Istanbul Modern from the apartment!!!). Istiklal Caddesi, a very vibrant, lively area with nightlife is a 5 minute walk but the neighborhood around the apartment is really quiet all hours of the day. Just stepping out of the apartment and walking down the cobble paved street is a treat because it is so scenic and beautiful.
This apartment is perfect for two people. Because we had a lot of luggage and needed taxi service to go back to the airport Fatih arranged a taxi for us which was very helpful because we didn't have phone access there. Fatih exudes trustworthiness and reliability and he made our stay in Istanbul really comfortable.
Ideal location, warm welcome and excellent advises: great place to stay for a couple.
The apartment is located in a very calm area, close to Galata Tower and Istanbul nightlife. The room is quite small but very well furnished, with everything you need (air con, hair dryer, breakfast set, etc.). You will also get city guide books at your disposal. Only drawback of our stay: wifi was not working (looked like a temporary problem though, I'm sure it's already repaired and wifi is available in many cafes anyway).
Fatih is very nice and welcoming host. He took some time to give us advices about our stay, thanks again. Punctual and arranging. Guidelines to meet him were very clear.
I would recommend this place for a couple.
This flat is cosy and qiuet. Fatih made the arrangements super smooth, the place would be perfect for two people, and the location is conveniently situated at the heart of Karakoy with easy access to the entire Istanbul central. Thank you very much!
