A Great Room in Cihangir/Beyoğlu. 5 min walk to Taksim Square, Istiklal Street...
Our house is in Cihangir, Beyoglu with its stylish decoration and awesome sea view. It has 3 bedrooms and we offer one of them for guests. We are a friendly couple, that's why, our rooms are rarely empty. Friends are always there to fill them up.
The bedroom we offer and the livingroom have sea view. It is pretty inspiring if you like Istanbul... From the bedroom, you can see the historical peninsula (The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc.) with a beautiful Golden Horn view... From the living room, you can see the Princes' Islands and Marmara Sea...
Let me explain you our place...
We live in Cihangir area. Cihangir is the heart of Beyoğlu. It is 5 min walk to Taksim and famous Istıklal Street. Taksim and Istiklal Street are the center of shopping, cafes, bars and night clubs...
It is 10 min walk to Kabataş, where u take all the ferries for Bosphorus Tour and to Asian side.
It is 8-10 min walk to main tram station Kabataş/Topkapı/Fındıklı. This tram takes you to historical peninsula (Sultanahmet Area) It takes 20 min to reach Sultanahmet by tram. In Sultanahmet, u can see the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar, Çemberlitaş Hamam, etc.
Even though our house is very close to attractions, facilities, the area we are living is pretty calm. Mainly famous people from movie sector are inhabiting here. That's why, it is also an artistic, cool area.
There are a lot of cozy and artistic cafes all around. One of them locates just under our building: Cafe Susam. Do not forget to try their delicious food.
If you want to have some seaside walk, u simply walk down to sea in 10 min and enjoy the side walk...

I really enjoyed my stay at Pi's place. She was very flexible with my check-in time, the place was clean and in a prime location. The view is superb! and on top of all that, Pi is a very easygoing and nice person to chat with. I felt absolutely at ease at her place. And if you like cats, you'll fall in love with her little "tiger" :)
Can I recommend the Room?
YES! Take the room! you would love every moment!
Long: Pina and Zadhe welcomed me in the best way one can be welcomed.
Warmly, Friendly, Loving and caring. They paied attention for everything that could make me feel happy and feel safe.
Pina took care of everything I needed. She didnt pay attention to anything else untill she had the feeling that I didn´t need her help anymore and didn´t have any questions left.
She even chetted and orgenised my meeting with my turkish friend for me.
Zadhe took care for the mood in the house. The guy is a natural born world citizen.
He understod my thoughts and feelings as a tourist immediatly. At first he left Pina do the first talking and after a while he brought his part in to it. He was very funny and did many similar things I usually do in Berlin.
The two has a european way of life which made things for me easier especially in the first hours in Istambul.
The Apartment: was one of the most beautiful places i saw in Istambul. It was large, confortable and very clean. The view was fantastic. You can stay in the apartment for a whole day and you wouldnt notice that the day turned in to a night. The Room is very (website hidden). 10 qm. The bed is super confortable. the sight from the Window is gorgeous. and Pina and Zadhe left me a lot of maps in the room to help me find the way in the city. The location is very good and central. There are plenty Cafés all over.
A very nice one is just under the apartment. The Shower was super and clean, the livingroom looks like a hotel lobby. It was worth every penny!
Un superbe séjour à Istanbul en partie grâce à la rencontre de nos hôtes, très accueillants, sympathiques et ouverts. L'emplacement du logement est vraiment idéal et l'appartement très agréable et confortable. A recommander vivement !
Thank you Pi and Kourosh! My trip to Istanbul couldn’t have started in a better way - very central, yet calm location, very beautiful apartment with a truly impressive panorama.
I loved waking up with the cruise ships in front of the Sultanahmed skyline, but even better: There´s a great atmosphere inside the apartment - so welcoming and easy-going from the first minute, such a wide range of topics to talk about and always a great sense of humor. Staying here means staying at a friend’s home. My best recommendations!
Pi and Kouroush were super helpful in suggesting what places to visit and how to make the most out of my trip. The apartment is really nice and clean and located very close from most of famous visiting points. All and all it was fun experience.
Staying with Pi and Kourosh was me having my best luck.
I already shared on (website hidden) with all my friends about the wonderful experience I have and recommend them to stay here if they come to Istanbul.
I stayed with Pi and kourosh for 10 days, and I wish I booked my whole 40 day trip staying here. Cihangir is one of the best neighborhood in Istanbul, and their home is really at the best location that you can walk to everywhere in the new city, which is the center of Istanbul where everything is happening. If you want to visit the old city where the main tourist attraction locate, you can easily reach the old city by tram, which is only a short walk away.
There are many trendy cafes that locals frequent, and also many interesting and creative shops.
The view from the bedroom and living room is spectacular, you can see blue mosque and hagia Sophia with golden horn and marmara sea. It seriously is million dollar view that is not easily available elsewhere, I took some pictures and hope Pi will put them on airbnb so that perspective guest can get an idea what a great view it is.
Most importantly, Pi and Kourosh are so hospitable, they made me feel very welcome and they are happy people that radiant good energy. They included me when they have breakfast and dinner, I truly feel home.
The room is very comfortable, bright and airy. I had great sleep every night. I wholeheartedly recommend their home to everyone, it's well be a wonderful experience guaranteed.
Great apartment. Nice location. Room large, clean and comfortable
I was blown away by the amazing view from the room (who doesn't like waking up and seeing Istanbul's most famous landmarks on the other side of a glittering blue harbour?) but the best part of the stay was definitely hanging out with Pi and her husband, their adorable kittens and their friends who popped in (one of whom even cooked breakfast!)
I honestly couldn't have asked for more lovely hosts or a better location from which to explore Istanbul. Loved it!
Had a great weekend in their nice and spacious apartment and made two small new friends :) Can really recommend, location in cihangir is perfect! Look forward to my next stay!
Pi was a great host, the place is lovely and the location was perfect for exploring Istanbul. It is right in the heart of a lively neighborhood so not the quietest spot, but it was an ideal base for us. Thanks Pi
