The flat is situated in the Galata area close to Istiklal Avenue, that takes you through the heart of Istanbul's commercial and entertainment Pedestrian Boulevard, leading to the famous Taksim Square.
Central for all travel connections. (i.e. 5 minutes walk to the conventional ferries, tramway and Şişhane subway station.)
Less than 10 minutes by tram to get to the old city (i.e. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, several historical turkish baths, Grand Bazaar)
2 minutes walk to Istiklal Avenue
10 minutes walk to Istanbul Modern Art Museum
10 minutes walk to the Spiced/Egyptian Bazaar
25 minutes walk to the old city
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.
The apartment is very close to Galata Tower on a beautiful quiet street. Famous designers’ shops are located on the street, and it's often used as a site for filming commercials because it’s considered one of the most charming streets in Istanbul.
Museums (i.e. Istanbul Modern Art, Pera), exhibition galleries, large stores, restaurants, bars, food markets, mosques, churches, synagogues are all within walking distance.
It has a comfortable queen bed for two people.
Crib is available for kids between ages 0 to 6.

The studio itself is spick and span and you'll have everything you need for your stay. With the list of amenities available, it is also a great alternative to staying in a hotel!
This studio will make you want to move in and never leave!
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.
Please leave the keys of the apartment on the table while you are checking out.
Enjoy your stay :)
We were back in the same apartment. Fatih is a very good host and his properties are in an excellent area with proximity of trendy places and public transport. It is easy to walk to all of the main tourist attractions of Istanbul or take a short ride on the team.
The apartment itself was warm, cozy, and well stocked with everything that we might need for our stay. The location is convenient for both visiting the Old City and exploring the north side of the Golden Horn.
Fatih was accommodating and he made our stay very comfortable.
Overall, this was a great place to stay.
Fatih's apartment is in a phenomenal location. We felt very safe and we were close to everything. The apartment is a very short walk to great restaurants, cafes and the Galata Tower. The apartment was very clean and Fatih provided everything we needed and more. This has been my best Airbnb experience and I am recommending Fatih for Airbnb's Superhost award.
The flat was same as shown in the photo, it is in quite safe and historical cosy zone. The neighborhood was quite safe. I can easily go to the flat at midnight. Sishane subway station on istiklal avenue is the best point to walk down to the flat and the shortest i guess. There is a car park nearby other sishane subway exit and it is possible to park your car safely during the day.
The only minus thing was the hot water as i wasn't satisfied it but my overall experience is good for Fatih and his flat.
Fatih is an attentive host, and this particular apartment is great.
Fatih runs a tight ship, with all the details thought through in advance, small things foreseen etc. We were thankful to Fatih for readiness to support us with such requests as getting us an iron or advising us where to eat midiye. He is extremely forthcoming and responsive - a great host.
The apartment is located very close to the metro station - about 300m away, post a short hike up a hill. This means all of the Istanbul along the metro lines is easily accessible. There are several cafés just around the corner as well as a small grocery store. The whole experience of the neighborhood made me reminiscent of the days in New York - I'd say, Galata is the West Village of Istanbul.
The apartment (actually, a studio) is drenched in sunlight and is very nicely setup - all the basics are in place. It looks the way it looks on the pictures. If you are a line traveller or a couple, go fir this place!
Fatih's place was a fantastic home base for my solo Istanbul adventures - it's right on one of the artsy, sleek street's in the hip Galata neighborhood and then another few minutes' walk from the well-traversed Istikal street. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable, great for one or two people, and very well equipped (with a converter plug too in case you forget, saved me there).
What's more, on my arrival in Istanbul, I wasn't able to get in touch with Fatih due to issues on my end, but he expressed concern and found me eventually. Great hospitality, much like many locals I met during my week in Turkey. I would highly recommend Fatih and his apartment to any travelers looking to stay in a great neighborhood while in Istanbul.
The apartment is the perfect location to stay in Istanbul for a few days! Nice bed, nice bathroom, perfect located close to the galata tower! Fatih is a great host! He is helpful with everything! I definitely will come back!
