The apartment is in a historical house in the neighbourhood of 'Balat'. Balat used to be the home of the Greek-Orthodox and the Jewish communities of Istanbul. Many Greek churches and synagogues in the area tell the stories of the former neighbours. Nowadays, Balat is a very charming, traditional and authentic neighbourhood, where the visitors can still taste the 'Old Istanbul'. It's a safe area.
There is grocery shops, small restaurants, bakeries, cafés and a supermarket very close to the apartment.
It takes only a two minutes walk to the charming Golden Horn ('Halic') and it's long waterside park.
The 'Eminönü' district is nearby. And the historic 'Sultanahmet' area and the buzzling 'Taksim' are both only a short bus ride away.



Mustafa, our angel for everything also lives in the building. He speaks Turkish only, but he is always happy to help and assist you. He will provide you with information about the apartment and also looks after everything.

English, German and Turkish are spoken.
