About This Listing
a freshly pimped up studio with great view, local feel and super central at the historical half island with Taksim and Istiklal 10 min. away.
The 50m2 apartment is situated in a very central, easily accessible and yet rather calm part of Cihangir. It is at the 5th floor and receives amazing sunlight throughout the day. You have some sea view near the Topkapi Palace area, historical peninsula and it receives light from 3 directions, a constant contact with the sky making you feel you are living together with gods. A rather big balcony will make your breakfast a pleasure with the old-city view facing Galata Tower, St.Antuan and Lycee Galatasaray. Besides a comfortable bedroom with a queen size bed, a big sofa is placed in the neatly furnished living room area which can actually allow up to 3-4 guests to stay in the apartment. The way I designed the apartment is there are no walls except for the bathroom one, so you get this chunk of space with equal brightness everywhere. Additionally the apartment consists of a well equipped kitchen area, a bathroom where you can look outside to the city while at shower with all the discretion. I put an old untuned piano in one corner in order to make a couple of notes every now and then to resonate the space with good vibes.
It is 3 min. to tophane tram station; 5 min. to istiklal street and 10 min. to taksim square. Galata Bridge over the Golden Horn and Karaköy district is just down the hill and 10 min. walking distance. So it is actually very convenient for both doing the old city tourist visits and going out to bars, cafes, nice restaurants and clubs at night. I have a bag full of recommendations list for you.
Treat it nicely.
Nous n'avons pu rencontrer Bilgehan car il n'était pas dans le coin lors de notre séjour, mais tout était prévu pour nous et nous avons énormément échangé par mail ou par téléphone.
L'appartement est tel que décrit dans l'annonce, très spacieux et agréable. La vue sur la terrasse sur le toit est à couper le souffle... de jour comme de nuit on ne s'en lasse pas. L'appart est situé idéalement dans un quartier très mignon et sympa de l'Istanbul moderne. Le seul bémol serait le matelas un petit peu dur.
Un grand merci à Bilgehan qui nous avait même préparé une liste avec toutes les informations utiles (supermarchés, restos, musées, bars, transports, etc..). Une adresse que je conseille définitivement!!!
Bildegan responds quickly and gives great advise.
The view from the rooftop terrace is breathtaking; eating your breakfast here beats any restaurant with a nice view.
We were able to stay in the apartment until 4pm on departure day, which was perfect.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends.
While we didn't meet Bilgehan, his friend was very patient and kind when we were delayed. Bilgehan phoned to make sure we were ok. The apartment is lovely and airy and had a great view from the balcony. The awning meant sitting outside rain or shine (we had both). Even when the weather was cool we sat inside and enjoyed the view through the glass doors. Perfect location--loads of places to eat, close to tram, walking to Istiklal, funky back streets to wander in. Lots of stairs though--which did my waistline some good after eating rather excellent pastries!
The email attachment opening is a universal abnb problem; they invented this mirror emails for privacy reasons and people are now unable to open the attachments. You should have told me you could not open it and have given me your email. Half the people can open that; half them cannot. Thanks for the improvement suggesetions. I appreciate it.
A light and airy flat, superbly positioned and perfect for exploring both Beyoglu with it's funky shops and cafes and the historic quarter of Istanbul.
Das Studio war perfekt und genau so wie beschrieben. Unglaublich tolles viertel mit authentischen kaffees und restaurants...wir habe es sehr genossen. Die Kommunikation mit Bilgehan war hervorragend! Hilfreicher, persönlicher Beschrieb zur Wohnung und Umgebung und immer sehr schnelle und positive Antworten auf alle Fragen. Kann ihn als Gastgeber nur empfehlen. Herzlichen Dank nochmals...Istanbul war grossartig!
