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 space

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.

Bilgehan was an excellent host. I never met him, but he was extremely responsive and helpful. When I arrived after midnight, he stayed in touch with me until I was in the house. The home was exactly like the photos and the views were absolutely amazing.

Wow. The apartment was perfect and had an amazing view that we were lucky to enjoy. It was very cozy and comfortable! The walk to the old city was not far at all. We didn't need to rely on public transport or taxis, but rather got to enjoy a scenic walk across the Galata bridge. Bilgehan and his caretaker were so communicator and were extremely helpful, not to mention warm and welcoming. We could not have asked for a better apartment or hosts. Highest recommendations to anyone looking to stay in Istanbul.

This was my second stay at Bilegehan's and it was as good as the first. His place is spacious and clean, feels homey because of its personal touches, stays warm in the winter, is located perfectly in Cihangir, and has a private rooftop with beautiful views west over the Golden Horn. Bilgehan, though I've never met him personally, is very responsive to needs over text and email.

I had a lovely time in Bilgehan's flat. It is perfectly located in Cihangir; about a 10-15 minute walk from Taksim, on a quiet downhill street that is nestled among the rest of the neighborhood's hipness, with cafes and groceries and restaurants all around. The flat is up five flights of stairs, which is a little bit of exercise, but the result is definitely worth it. The flat itself is quite spacious, with a dining room area, sitting area with two couches, large fully functional kitchen area, bed area, balcony, modest but well-functioning bathroom, great hot water, and the prize: a private roof accessed by a sliding glass panel with a miraculous view to the west across the Golden Horn, toward all of the city's famous mosques. It's a comfortable place to make your temporary home. I never met Bilgehan, but he provides guests with a comprehensive welcome document that makes settling in extremely easy. His caretaker was there to let me in when I arrived late at night after a much-delayed flight. He was also extremely responsive working with me to retrieve some personal documents that I left behind after my stay! I would unequivocally recommend this apartment.
