Meet HORIZON, our cozy and comfortable terrace penthouse with full view of the sea and the Bosphorus Straits in the exclusive Cihangir quarter of Istanbul near Taksim Square, the very heart of the city.
HORIZON offers easy access to sights of interest in Istanbul.

Or, from Kabatas down the hill, take a five-minute ferry to the Asian side --or a longer one to Istanbul's romantic and histroric Princess Islands.

Houes Rules. Although we love animals, pets are not allowed. For the sake of neighbours and neigbourhood, it is vital to abstain from excessive noise.
The photos and the description of the property were accurate. It was a lovely place to spend a few days, good location, great view, cosy. I would say to check carefully if you're thinking about bring five adults (as says it sleeps) technically that is correct but it wouldn't be very comfortable and there would be no privacy as there is a double bed and a bed sofa in one room and another double sofa next to the great view which is part of the same room really. That said it was perfect for myself, husband and son. Ilhan was available when we needed him and very friendly. I would definitely return, especially in the summer then we could make better use of the large terrace.
The flat was clean, pleasant and full of everything you need for a comfortable stay. We spent 10 days here with our 2 daughters. The light filled space and the view are really perfect. Thanks Ilhan for everything.
The neighborhood was perfect and the view was fantastic. The hot water in the shower goes on and off a bit, but apart from that it was a perfect cozy spot in a great district.
Dear New Thank you staying at our Horizon penthouse flat in classy Cihangir. We are glad that you enjoyed the Bosphorus seasview, and, in Jesse's judgement, " a gem of an apartment" and, as New says, perfect neghbourhood. Also thanks for pointing out what could be done to further improve the condition that allows us to achieve and maintain top customer satisfaction ranking. All the points you have raised are being addressed and fixed. Thanks again and best in your endeavours. Ilhan
A gem of an apartment on a serene street with a truly sublime roof-deck view. A 10 minute jaunt to Cihangir's array of bars and restaurants, and a 40 minute stroll across the bridge to Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Its close to the tram as well, but it's always more rewarding to hoof it in Istanbul. The apt comfortably accommodated three grown men--no small feat--and the heart-melting gang of neighborhood cats was an added perk. The cleanliness of the bathroom left a little to be desired and the hot water was intermittent, but with that view, and for that price, none of us were in the mood to complain. Heartily recommended
Ilhan was very friendly, very helpful and everything was as described. The place is right in the middle of a Bohemian neighborhood and safe and walking distance to everywhere.. perfect!
IIhan was very hospitable and made us feel very welcome, especially as we arrived relatively early from a cruise ship. He also helped with the baggage up the 80 steps to the loft apartment.
