The Space

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 with a 360 degree 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.

  • My husband and I had an absolutely fantastic stay at Hanzade's beautiful apartment. It is gorgeously furnished and very well maintained, with the most wonderful views, from the sitting room and the bedroom. It is also perfectly situated with transport and the main sights within very easy reach.
    Hanzade was the most gracious host, patiently awaiting our arrival, slowed down by the Friday night traffic in Istanbul. She also very warmly invited us to join her party that she had organised on the roof terrace for her friend's special birthday that weekend. Sadly, we miscalculated the boat times, having gone over to the Asia side for dinner that evening, and missed all the fun, having missed the boat. Sorry, Hanzade, we were so looking forward to joining in.
    Hanzade was also very accommodating about our check-out time, as we had an evening flight, and loads of luggage (too many temptations in the Grand Bazaar!)
    Thank you, Hanzade. You were the perfect host, and it was the most perfect place to stay.

  • The apartment was amazing. The view and everything was exactly as shown on the photos. Hanzade was very nice and lovely, she showed us around. She also answered every question we ask via email during the stay very quick. It was a very clean and high class apartment. We absolutely recommend this place.

  • Great apartment. All the facilities you need. Comfy bed. Amazing view with fabulous location. Just sit on the roof with wine and pizza and watch the world! Close to lots of restaurants and off course Taksim shopping street. Would stay again!!

  • We had a great stay in Istanbul. The apartment is perfectly located in the most beautiful neighborhood with lot of restaurants, bars and little shops. The flat it self was very noble equipped with everything you need. Not to forget the brilliant terrace with a amazing over the town. And Hanzade was just a great host waiting for us at the arrival day till very late in the apartment. We thank you for everything!

  • The hostess was extremely helpful in every way - even personally walking us to a restaurant she recommended. The neighborhood and apt are fabulous.

  • We had a great time in Istanbul. Hanzade was a perfect host, she replied to all our inquiries within minutes and made our stay as perfect as it could be. It was unbelievable that she welcomed us personally, even though we arrived so late (before midnight!). The directions given to her to the taxi driver over the phone were very helpful (grabbing a taxi from the airport was a very good advice too and it was not expensive, approximately 42 TL).
    The location is perfect for first stayers since most of the spots we wanted to visit were in walking distance.
    The apartment is amazing, even if the bed is not very big for two. The view is simply unbeatable.
    Thank you very much Hanzade for this great Istanbul experience!!!

  • Although we didn't meet Hanzade her and her family were great hosts. They were very warm and welcoming. All our questions prior to arrival were answered promptly.

    The apartment is stunning. A very good kitchen, comfortable bed, and amazing views.

    The location is also excellent. We purchased an IstanbulKart for use on the trams and metro but found we could walk to most of the sights we wished to visit.

    Overall our trip was an amazing experience and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

  • The apartment was beautiful with amazing views, especially at night. The location was also (email hidden)st of the main attractions were within walking distance. I really can't fault the place at all and to round it off Hanzade (the host) was a great host, both helpful and professional.

About
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...
