About This Listing
This is a nice little flat with surprises: there is a small yard where you can have breakfast and a little Turkish hammam just for you! It is small but it is a proper hammam with warmed marble and a “kurna”! There is a double bedroom and the sofa in the living room cannot be used as a bed. The bathroom comes with a shower. There is a dining table and chairs. The building itself was built during the first decades of the republic. We jazzed it up with Mondrian inspired art work and Istanbul silhoutte reliefs. There is an elevator, water tank, shared 2 sets of washer and dryer and closed circuit camera controlled entrance in this building. There is a natural gas combi heater, air conditioner in the living room, hair dryer, clean sheets and towels and free weekly cleaning. Wireless and a diaphone buzzer is a standard in all our flats.
This apartment is very centrally located in Beyoglu. It is 400mt. to Istiklal Avenue and the Demiroren Shopping Mall. Taksim Square is a 5 minute walk and the metro and bus stops are there. You can also take the funicular connecting to the tram line going to the Old city in Taksim Square. If you walk downhill when you get out of your building, you come to Cukurcuma and Tophane districts which are full of things to see: antique dealers, design shops, cafes, art galeries, sights and sounds and smells from the streets…Continue downhill and eventually you’ll come to Tophane to see the great Kılıc Ali Pasa Mosque by Architect Sinan and right there is the tram line to Sultanahmet ( Old City) and Kabatas (for the ferries to the Asian side and the Prince Islands).
Great location and a cozy apartment.
There were, however, many things that need fixing. Very loose handles, doors, drain was stuck in the shower, cleaning could have been much better. Internet does not work no matter how much we tried. Problem with WiFi is due to the access point being in the main corridor and the signal is too weak. Only at the entrance you can connect, but not in the apartment...
At a good rate this apartment is worth your booking.
Very nice and big apartment close to istiklal caddesi - maybe 3 minutes away and has everything you need for a pleasant stay (you can also make some meals there if you want). It is in peaceful and quiet street. The apartment is in half basement but still get enough sun light from the garden. There is also a hamam, but we have some troubles for using it - so if you stay there, ask how to use it on arrival. Wifi work fast. In the building is also a laundry - free using of washing and dry machine. The host is very co-operative, if you have any questions you can always call or write an email and they do everything to satisfy you - they also arrange a baby cot for us.
Lovely apartment in the centre of town. Perfect location, right near taksim square and the studio itself is modern and very comfortable, a little hideaway in the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. Would definitely recommend this flat !
Ev gerçekten temiz ve konforluydu kaldığım 4 gün içinde hiçbir sorunla karşılaşmadım.Merkezi yerlere çok yakın, İstiklal caddesine 2 dakikalık yürüme mesafesinde sorunsuz bir mahallede.
We had a very pleasant stay at the appartment 802. The correspondance with Soner was always immediate and helpful, a person with good repute. The airport transfer was working as promised. At the apartment Tugce was awaiting us very friendly, thanks for that. Everything was like discribed. Only we could not find a way to heat up the turkish bath, but surely we could have asked about that. Or is it not possible to heat it up?! The "garden" is not such a pleasant place to be, but at least it's a possibility to have a cigarette outside. The location could not be much better. A little store is close and a few places to have breakfast. Areas with bars are not far away. A fine place to start your daily journeys around the city. The citizens of Istanbul were so relaxed and kind that we'd love to come back once again!
