Central for all travel connections. (i.e. 5 minutes walk to the conventional ferries, tramway and Şişhane subway station.)

2 minutes walk to Istiklal Padestrian Avenue
10 minutes walk to Istanbul Modern Art Museum
10 minutes walk to the Spiced/Egyptian Bazaar

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.

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 before you check out
Enjoy your stay :)
A great little apartment in a superb location - close to restaurants, bars, shops, and easy walking distance to the old city. Fatih is incredibly helpful host, helping us with airport transfers and other advice.
I stayed in two of Fatihs apartments for almost 3 weeks. Fatih was helpful in answering any questions I had about the area/things to do. His apartments where super cute. I really enjoyed staying there. The location is fantastic! Very central but on a quiet beautiful cobblestoned street. I hope to stay there again when I return. Thank you Fatih.
Fatih is an excellent host. He was there to meet us even though we arrived late, and was always responsive and helpful. He showed us some places to get the best local eats, and even purchased a new router for the flat, improving the internet immensely (it is now very fast and stable). Thanks, Fatih!
The apartment is a clean, spacious studio with a washing machine, small kitchenette, and a sunny little nook. The apartment very well-located, just a block from Istiklal street, the main shopping street leading to Taksim square, and from the metro and funicular as well. Despite this, the neighbourhood is very quiet. There are many independent shops and cafes nearby.
I was in Istanbul for one week and stayed at Fatih's apartment for a couple of days in Taksim. The apartment is as pictured in the photos. It's small but very cosy and is well-equipped. You have everything you need. It's perfect for a short stay in the city. It's very near the beautiful Galata Tower. You can walk all the way to Istanbul if you like walking or even take the tram. There's a mini market just around the corner which is always open. Fatih's is the best host you can find in all Istanbul. He's very helpful and would respond at all times. He speaks perfect Enlgish. Communication was smooth and effective. He came to pick me up at the bus station when I first arrived. I had a great time in Istanbul. I would definitely recommend staying at any of Fatih's apartments. Thank you Fatih! :)
We absolutely loved Fatih's apartment! It was in such a great neighborhood and totally adorable. Fatih himself was also very hospitable and very informative. It was an excellent stay all around.
I had a great stay at this charming and well-stocked little bachelor apartment! The room is small, but has everything needed for a comfortable visit including a comfortable bed, little dining table, and a sofa nook. I loved the extra little details like the pile of maps and the sewing kit. The location is pretty great; it was a 20 minute walk over the Galata bridge to the main historical sights, and Istikal and Taksim square were equally accessible. Fatih was very helpful, giving me lots of information related to my interests, and going out of his way with restaurant recommendations. There are also lots of great cafés and shops right around the apartment. All in all a great find, and I would definitely stay here again!
This really great place for stay in Istanbul. Cozy and clean apartament. Surrounding area is very interesting with many cafe, bars, shops and also museums. Apartment has a view on different part of the streets and you can discover a istanbul streetlife through your windows! If i come back to Istanbul i want to stay at this place again!
And Fatih was really helpfull and hospitable, epecially thank to him!
