Our cool and comfortable one bedroom apartment with exposed brick has a true city feeling! It comfortably fits two and is centrally located on a quiet street, just several blocks from Taksim Square.

The Space

The spacious suites of Vintage are air-conditioned and equipped with modern furniture. Each room includes bed and a sitting area and an LCD TV.

The kitchen features a refrigerator, stove, electric teakettle and a dining area. Ironing facilities and a walk-in closet are also available in the rooms.

Guest Access

I own 4 building in same street in Beyoğlu and the most attractive side of my properties is location. Omer Hayyam bus Station is just on the main way(Talabasi Boulevard) upper side of the street. It takes few steps to reach apartment. Galatasaray Tram Station(on the İstiklal Avanue) is 3 min walking distance. We are in the same distance to both Şişhane and Taksim Metro (email hidden) takes 10 min to walk both of these stations. Also Karaköy and Kabataş ferry stations are 15 min walking distance to apartment.
I suggest my guests who prefer to reach here by taxi to call me when they get a cap from airport. It is better to ask driver to speak with me for the address describtion, it prevents to loose time and to be cheated

Interaction with Guests

I am managing more than 10 property on this account by myself and i am answering all your questions atleast one hour. You can also reach me by viber and whatsapp via mobile for free texting.
I had great friendships all around the world by this business and i aim to improve my social network.

The Neighborhood

Tarlabaşı is a neighbourhood in the Beyoğlu district in Istanbul, Turkey stretching from Taksim Square and Talimhane in the north to Tepebaşı in the south. It is bordered on the east side by the four-lane Tarlabaşı Bulvarı and by Dolapdere Caddesi on the west.
In Tarlabaşı were declared a regeneration area by the government in February 2006 following a petition from the local municipality. The recently released renewal law for the Protection of Deteriorated Historic and Cultural Heritage through Renewal and Re-use, forms the basis of the renewal process in Tarlabaşı as well as in many other neighbourhoods within the historic city.
It is still most characteristic place to see Istanbul real local life in downtown.

Getting around

There are many restaurants serving international and Turkish cuisine walking distance away.Also too many shopping places around area. Taksim Square and Taksim Metro Stop are just 0.3 miles from the residence.

The historic Sultanahmet area is 2 miles away with Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia. Ataturk Airport is 12 miles away.
At the behind of building there is a bus station just 10 m distance.

  • onat was very nice and helpfull, he ordered a cab for us, gave us umbrellas and asked every day for our wishes. istikal is just a five minute walk and cool clubs like the indigo are near by. in the other direction you find authentic traditional turkish life with running kids and tee drinking men on street and of course a lot of cats. we loved being in istanbul and staying in onats house.

  • Onat and Apo were very welcoming. They responded immediately to any of our inquiries and pointed us in the direction of some nice hidden gems in Istanbul. Apartment is just as appears in picture and very centrally situated. Also, extremely safe. Cameras and locks where you need them.

  • Onat was a great host. He did not hesitate to show us new places in Istanbul. We could always come to him and ask for assistance, or for any good tips to go out. He was always up for some small talk. We felt really comfortable.

  • we enjoyed our stay at "Lovely and Cheap Studio" . The apartment is situated very close to Beyoglu attractions.
    Only two complaints - the neighbourhood was noisy at night
    the room was very smokey from other people smoking in the building.

  • Everything about the hosts, flat, house, street around seemed extremely nice to me. Great location in walking dictance from the main city life. Air of joy and freedom I will come for to Istanbul again and again. Thank you for my happy memories. Wish you all the best!

  • Onat was an amazing and helpful host, and was very flexible when a friend of ours decided to join us for one night at the last minute.

    The location of the flat is very convenient to Istiklal Avenue (shopping/awesome restaurants on the side streets). We also walked to most of the attractions in Sultanahmet, although you there are also lots of public transportation options as well if you are pressed for time. The Funicular from Tunel to Istiklal is super worth knowing about!

    We had a great time and Onat's flat was fabulous, as was his hosting :)

  • This apartment was wonderful. It's hard to beat the location as it is 200m from the center of Istiklal, where you can turn right to get to the "main attractions" of Sultanahmet or left to get to Taksim Square. Onat is a rising real estate mogul in this city and is renovating new apartments by the day (it seems). The 2 apartments I stayed in were brand new and had everything I needed. Onat gave my cab driver directions from the airport and was available during my entire stay to make certain that I had everything I needed and he also provided some great tips for where to go. I would highly recommend these units.

  • It was a great time in Istanbul. Onat and his partners were very friendly during our whole stay always eager to help us. We lived in another apartment nearby little bit bigger than this,very nicely furnished and cozy with everything needed for a week stay. The place is 5 minutes walk from Istiklal street, so I would definitely recommend it!
