This, centuries old Venetian style restored unique accommodation will certainly add a different dimension to your Istanbul experience. You will have the opportunity to witness the old city and new city hand in hand through the breathtaking view of the apartment. The terrace (email hidden) view of the Golden Horn, is a great spot to throw unforgettable parties during your stay. Which might include a welcome party of your own, organized by the host =)
My apartment is located in Beyoglu district, by Galata Tower. Situated just steps away from the famous Istiklal Avenue, Galata Bridge over the Golden Horn and Karaköy district, it is also within a walking distance to the tram, tube, funicular and ferry line.
In addition to its genuine location, the apartment is quite comfortable. Different from many other flats in the area, the building has an elevator, so you won’t have to worry carrying your luggage. I have one bedroom with a queen size bed and a studio couch is placed in the neatly furnished living room. The apartment consists of a well equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom with 7/24 hot water. There is wireless internet, TV, washing machine and dryer, clean sheets and towels.

Excellent location, excellent host, amazing place with the best view in Istanbul.
Hanzade's place was absolutely great! Her family made me feel very welcome, the apartment has a great view, the location is really good and very close to different transport options. The neighborhood is also nice and safe and has plenty of cafes, restaurants and little shops nearby. I would definitely recommend this place!
Hanzade was very helpful & the flat was GORGEOUS. Beautifully put together and spotlessly clean. Amazing view in a perfect location. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you Hanzade!!
Eine einzigartige Wohnung im Herzen Istanbuls! Der Blick von der Dachterrasse ist einfach atemberaubend... Aber auch vom Schlaf- und Wohnzimmer der mit viel Liebe zum Detail renovierten Wohnung ist der Blick auf die Stadt traumhaft!
Hanzade ist eine sehr sympathische und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin!!! Dank ihr haben wir am ersten Abend auch trotz bereits geschlossener Küche in einem nahegelegenen Restaurant etwas zu essen bekommen.
Mille grazie per tutto!
Hanzade and her apartment are amazing! She was kind enough to meet us at the apartment around midnight after our flight landed, helped explain how to navigate the tricky Istanbul streets to the apartment, and showed us around even though she had an early flight of her own the next day. The apartment is gorgeous-- modern and outfitted with everything you could need-- and the view, both from inside and the roof, is indescribable. Pictures do not do it justice! Even when we were vegging out inside the apartment it felt like we were still experiencing the city because we could watch the view. The washer and dryer, fantastic shower, and elevator in the building were nice extra luxurious touches.
I loved staying in this apartment and would love to return next time I'm in Istanbul.

When I am home, I love to cook, have friends over, watch How I met your mom or read a book listening to some music accompanied by a good cup of coffee...If I am not home, I am probably out of town, traveling. I love all sorts of traveling; whether it is with a 15k backpack up on the hills or with a carry on, on my heels...
In order to make all this possible, I work in the business of social change in Istanbul. I love this city. During my college years I traveled extensively. I decided to create a space for change; here I join airbnb, to be the host and the guest...
