About this listing
Very central. Watch the historical city from my terrace. It is truly an amazing place to discover istanbul. The location is superb. I am an easy going host. No drama. You also feel like home.
Fully renovated, very central and peaceful apartment
I live at the top 2 floors of a building and i am renting the very top floor. You will be staying at a semi - independent space in a beautiful apartment in the heart of Istanbul for a price of a room. It can accomodate up to 2 people. The apartment was fully renovated few years ago and has all the comforts you need in a house. Lots of sunshine, very clean and has a peaceful, comforting vibe.
THE BEST LOCATION TO BE :
This space is in Cihangir - Cukurcuma district. Walking distance to all main attractions also to Tram, metro, ferry, bus (email hidden)ose to Taksim square, minutes away from the very famous Istiklal street full of movie theaters, bookshops, cafe shops.... Many trendy and traditional cafe shops are around. Also 15 minutes to the historical district Sultanahmet .A vibrant culture, an incredible blend of east and west, old and new.
SECOND FLOOR, LOTS OF SPACE, TERRACE TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF HISTORICAL ISTANBUL VIEW
The second floor that you will be staying is quite independent from downstairs with its own bedroom, toilet, living area and terrace. The terrace is good size with flowers and Galata Tower view. Also I have a swing in the terrace for 2 people which makes it an incredible terrace experience. Many guests do their morning exercise here. There is also a massage table in the room since this is a house with lots of alternative therapy happenings...
The bathroom downstairs is large with a Jacuzzi. There is also another sweet balcony with a nice view. Please note the apartment is 160 square meters in total so there is lots of space which is a gift in the city center...

The flat has a regular cleaning lady. Your room will be cleaned before you arrive. Clean and ironed sheets, fresh towels etc. No need to bring anything.
If you are looking for a private flat i have another apartment close by. 2 bedroom flat, fully renovated in a great location.
Bathroom, living room, kitchen, teras, balcony can be used as common spaces. Please feel comfortable and act as if it is your house. I am used to guests and very comfortable so you can feel at home also.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with guests depending also how much privacy they need. I am working all day at a Yoga studio close by to my house so usually i see my guests in the morning for morning caffe or in the evening.
When i think of Istanbul cannot consider another location to live or to visit. Cihangir is close to everything; historical places, cultural activities, nigh life, super restaurants. It is historical, artistic, culturally very rich. The place to be in Istanbul.
My flat is in Cihangir area. I am in the middle of the major hub of Taksim where you can connect to every point of the city by Metro or bus. Taksim is 7 minutes walk. Also, within 5 minutes of walk you can reach the trim station that connects you to the historical peninsula of Sultanahmet. It is 15 minutes walk or 3 tram stops to reach the historical peninsula where you have the spice market, grand bazaar, blue bisque, haifa sophia….
Istanbul Modern Museum, Museum of Innocence, famous Istiklal street and historical landmark Galata Tower only 5-10 minutes walking distance.
Be comfortable but treat as if your own home with care.

Loved the apartment and great location! The neighborhood was lovely and full of life. Alev was a great host -- friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a nice stay in Istanbul! Looking forward to coming back soon!
Alev's place is quirky and cool and has an amaaaazing location in the heart of hipster Çhihangir. She was communicative and flexible. Ceilings are low in places upstairs - but having your own terrace is pretty sweet.
Alev replied my mails very quickly and answered all my questions about getting to her place promptly and friendly. And that's how she is: a very nice and friendly and humorous person - just the perfect host!
Her flat in the 6th floor of an Istanbul house ist really wonderful. You won't find a better place to start exploring Istanbul. You can begin right there, with a view from that beautiful terrace.
Wonderful experience at Alev's home. She has been very nice and friendly with us. Her advices for visiting have been very useful to take advantage of our short stay in Istanbul! The house is very welcoming and very well located (Cihangir) to reach the most important places of Istanbul by walk or by public transports. One more things, the neighborhood is full of nice restaurants and bars. I'll return to her home for my next trip there!
I really enjoyed staying in Alev's apartment in Cihangir. It was clean, comfortable and warm. Having the top of the apartment meant that I had a lot of my own space and room to spread my things out. It's in an excellent location, walking distance to all of the wonderful restaurants and bars in the area. I also attended a yoga class with Alev, where she works, which was much needed after all of the walking. I would highly recommend staying here and I would return in the future.
