Be my guest and stay in a colorful room at my cozy apartment. Experience a part of Istanbul that is yet local, yet cosmopolitan and only walking distance away from the ancient sights and the buzzing life on Istiklal Street.
I am renting out one room of my apartment to vacationers and short term visitors to Istanbul.
The room is fully furnished and has a futon style day bed easily suitable for 2 people. There is WiFi access, kitchen and bathroom are shared facilities, as I do also live in the apartment.
My place is located in (email hidden)ly yet residential neighborhood that has some bohemian feel to it. Taksim square is 10 min walking distance, 5 min to Istiklal Street. Cihangir is an ideal starting point to explore the city of Istanbul, with Sultanahmet and its' famous sights only 15 min away by tramvay and within walking distance to several ferry docks if you want to hop over to the Asian side.
My apartment is in the center of Cihangir on a quiet street, surrounded by cafés, bars and markets.

I enjoy providing travelers with all necessary information on how to get where and what they can't miss. As I do live in the apartment myself, I will be present during your stay. Depending on your needs/my work load, I will give you detailed information on all must-sees, no-goes, etc. at home or over coffee somewhere outside.
My place is located in (email hidden)ly yet residential neighborhood that has some bohemian feel to it. There is lots of cafés, bars, supermarkets, diners, boutiques and galleries all in and around Cihangir.
Metro, tram, busses are all available within 5-10 min walking distance.
Looking forward to host you here!
Please lock front and apartment door and don't make too much noise after 10pm, as I have to get up at 6.30 am. Please don't bring acquaintances from bars, clubs etc. home with you. Enjoy your stay!
Annette is a wonderful host. She gave us a lot of tips. The flat is very well located, not far away from Taksim Square, in a peaceful neighborhood.
Annette was a perfect host--very responsive before my trip, so kind to buy me a drink and chat when I arrived, and helpful with any request or question I had. The apartment is bright and cozy and perfectly located for exploring the old part of Istanbul. I don't hesitate to say that Annette is the nicest host I've had from airbnb. I was a bit ill during my trip as well, and I even felt assured/safe that if I needed actual medical care, she would have done everything possible to help me. It was a pleasure to meet her and stay in her place, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any other Istanbul travelers!
Annette is a great host, knowledgeable, sweet, friendly, and her flat is cosy and is situated in a really nice neighbourhood.
In one word: awesome. Annette is an impeccable – and very cool – host who has a great apartment in an equally great neighborhood.
We, my best friend and I, had a lovely stay at Annette's. The apartment is comfy, clean and perfectly located in a calm, safe side street in the lively, hip Cihangir district. It's the perfect starting point to explore Istanbul by foot as well as public transportation.
Annette is a caring host and can offer great advice for nice spots, cafes and eateries, especially if you want to go beyond the touristy hotspots.
To sum it up we had four wonderful days at Annette's apartment and would definitely stay with her again!
It was a pleasure to be the guest of Annette. She made me feel very comfortable and we had nice discussions. Friendly and helpful !
The apartment is very clean, perfectly located in the hearth of Cihangir and you would enjoy the charming atmosphere of the neighborhood : nice cafés, good restaurants... The apartment is also close to Taksim's place and the train station of Tophane (only 10mn by foot). So it's very easy to discover Istanbul from this area.
Higly recommended and I would ask her if I come back in Istanbul.
J'ai adoré rester chez Annette. Annette est l'hôte que l'on désire avoir: hyper sympathique, accueillante, pas compliquée tout en respectant notre petite routine et intimité. Elle connaît bien le coin, qui est d'ailleurs parfaitement situé: au coeur du quartier branché et sympa de Cihangir (cafés et restos très cools) tout offrant un accès facile aux attractions touristiques... Je vous conseille chaleureusement de contacter Annette!
I loved staying at Annette's. Annette is the kind of host that you would want : super friendly, welcoming, laid back while respecting your little routine and privacy.
