In the recently renovated flat, which is located on the 4th floor of a beautiful 19th century Italian building, there is a bedroom, a living room, a diningroom, a walk-in closet changing room, a full size bathroom with a jacuzzi/shower, a fully equipped kitchen and a beautiful french balcony decorated with flowers and the view of the Galata tower.
It's a sunny apartment with the view of the Galata tower. It's nice and warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
The apartment is located in a residential neighbourhood of central Cihangir, in the Taksim area. It's walking distance to all the excitement and livelihood of the famous Istiklal Caddesi and yet when you walk into the flat you walk away from all the hassle of the street and enter peace and quiet.
The flat is also 3-5 minutes walk away from all public transportation, grocery stores, banks, cafes and restaurants.
In the bedroom there is a queen size bed with a firm mattress and there is a desk by the window.
Wireless internet access is available.

The flat was lovely and spacious with a truly breathtaking view of the city that can be seen from a little balcony lined with potted plants. The apartment was comfortable and clean with beautiful bathroom, orderly kitchen and two lovely sitting rooms. The neighborhood is great -- we spent lots of time just wandering around, lost on beautiful, hilly streets. Getting the key was easy (we did not meet up with Petek or Marco as they were on holiday but with their friend instead) and everyone was very responsive and accommodating about time and place. Highly recommended.
Patek is very nice and the location is the best. So why only 3 stars?
No washer/dryer, no dishwasher, 5 flights of stairs, no A/C etc. Things that can't be helped are noisy street sounds etc. The flat needs a coat of paint and the overhead fan blades had a deep layer of dust on them. All things considered, you get what you pay for.
Petek's apartment is 100% what it is advertised to be. It is a spacious 3 bedroom apartment (of which one is used as a study/second lounge) ideally located 5 minutes walk (up a steep hill) to Istiklal Cardessi, which is the popular shopping street that never sleeps. The staircase up to the apartment is quite something, but the view from the balcony is the ultimate reward once inside.
The apartment does not have air conditioning and it was quite warm the week we were there, but Petek and Ahmed went out of their way to arrange a mobile a/c unit, because the fan didn't cool the place down enough. Both responded very quickly if we had any questions and was always just a call away. Ahmed even called our taxi driver to make sure we got to the airport safely and without trouble.
We highly recommend this apartment if you are planning to visit Istanbul.The apartment is well worth the cost.
"Mi Casa" could not have been more perfect. We enjoyed the airy, sunny, clean, art-filled, roomy and well-equipped apartment, great shower, and perfect (website hidden) of all was the view of Istanbul from the lovely little terrace--where we managed to even seat 3 people for dinner on a couple of occasions. At night, when several major sites are lit up (Topkapi, Blue Mosque), the view is even more impressive.
Note that this is a 4th floor walk-up (which really means 5 floors since the first floor is Ground); we enjoyed the exercise but it wouldn't work for everyone.
Four of us stayed here for 6 nights and everything was absolutely perfect. Petek was extremely helpful in arranging rides to and from the airport, suggesting local places to go, providing maps, etc.
The location is great--- it's close to great restaurants, bars, and sights in the Beyoğlu neighborhood, and it's close enough to walk to Sultanahmet, Taksim Square, the Galata Tower, and other Istanbul favorites.
The apartment itself was spacious and adorable.
We would all highly recommend staying here on your visit to Istanbul!
The apartment is very cozy. The view from the balcony is great, it was nice to drink beer there :). The location is perfect - close to central street. Petek was very helpful and told us good spots in the city.
Petek's Place is great. It is located in the heart of the fun. It is also a fairly short walk to the historic sites. Although, you will want to take the tram after walking up the hill a few times.
The actual apartment is really nice. The balcony has a great view. There is even kind of library room.
Petek herself is super. She arranged to have a car pick us up at the airport. Then at checkout she had a cab ready for us right by the place as soon as we were done with checkout.
At checkin, she also answered a bunch of our questions and provides a map with some cool places marked on it and their descriptions. There also tons of guidebooks in the place.
Overall, she is an outstanding host.
On our first visit to Istanbul we not only wanted to experience the usual touristic spots, but wished to be part of this fascinating city. Peteks apartment was more than we've expected and we highly recommend it! We instantly felt at home and though it is so close to the lively spots and night life, ithe neighborhood is calm and safe. Petek organized a pick up taxi from the airport to her place, which has been very convenient. On our next visit we'll stay at Peteks casa-for sure!
Petek's Place, which is in a really cool neighborhood in Istanbul, is spacious and nicely decorated. She is accommodating and has clearly given a great deal of thought to making her guests feel at home. The view from her place is great. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
