Ismail nous a attendu malgré notre arrivée tardive, et très bien accueilli. Il est resté disponible tout le long de notre séjour.
Appartement vraiment bien situé, au pied de la tour galata. la chambre donne sur une cour intérieure donc c'est au calme ce qui est appréciable !
Ο Ismail ήταν πολύ εξυπηρετικός κι απαντούσε πάντα πολύ γρήγορα σε όποια μικρα προβλήματα αντιμετωπίσαμε. Τo διαμέρισμα είναι πολύ κοντά στην περιγραφή του και στις φωτογραφίες. Είναι καθαρό, άνετο (το μπάνιο είναι κάπως στενό αλλά ok και το βασικότερο δε μυρίζει η αποχέτευση του) με wifi και συνεχόμενη θέρμανση. Βρίσκεται σε μια κάθετη στην πλατεία του πύργου του Γαλατά (χωρίς όμως να έχει φασαρία). Το μέρος είναι πολύ καλό, μέσα στο κέντρο, πολύ κοντά από τη μια στην istiklal και Ταξιμ, και στην γέφυρα του Γαλατα και παλιά πόλη από την άλλη (η απόσταση αυτή περπατιέται αν και υπάρχουν επίσης μετρό και τραμ). Εκεί κοντά υπάρχουν πολλά μαγαζιά (και ειδικά με μουσικά όργανα), καφέ (αυτό ακριβώς δίπλα στο σπίτι είναι μια πολύ καλή επιλογή) και ένα minimarket.
La descripción del apartamento es muy fiel a la realidad. Es tranquilo, silencioso y cómodo. Quizás le falte algo de luz y tampoco el baño dispone de ventilación.
La cama son dos colchones individuales juntos. La calidad es media.
La cocina un poco pobre de utensilios. Nosotros no cocinamos pero creemos que con lo que dispone no es suficiente para poder cocinar minimamente.
Se dispone de acceso libre a la terraza con sillones y mesita, ideal para una cerveza y tomar el sol.
La UBICACION es perfecta. Justo al lado de la plaza Galata ubicada en una colina. Bajando esa colina y cruzando el puente estas en un cuarto de hora en el Bazar de las Especies.
El entorno es muy agradable y a 5 minutos del barrio de Pera, ideal para cenar, tomar algo o salir de fiesta.
We had a wonderful stay in Galata Tower Furreya Apartments. The location is very central, with a lot of great restaurants, shops nearby. The apartment is very comfortable and well-equipped. We had no difficulty arranging to collect and drop off keys. What really made it was the roof terrace with its amazing view over old Istanbul. I would highly recommend this apartment. Note: when arriving there is a steep climb up to the area. Our taxi could not get to it from the route he had taken. This was difficult. Especially in the rain. But it was worth it in the end!
Det var super nemt at arrangere vores ophold med Ismail, der svarede straks på alle beskeder. Vi afhentede nøgler i en lille restaurant nær Galata Tower og blev vist til lejligheden.
Lejligheden var ren og pænt, og beliggenheden var fantastisk! Vil klart anbefale at bo i området omkring Galata tower til andre, der skal til Istanbul.
Several months ago, my Mom and I came up with a plan for a reunion in Istanbul with family flying in from Iran; we live in California. I knew going in that this was going to be a trip of a lifetime and I intended to make sure that everything worked out smoothly. Because my Aunt from Iran has a disability and neither she nor her daughter speak English proficiently (or any Turkish), all aspects of our stay and itinerary had to be planned in advance. Ismail responded to my multiple queries with patience and kindness. We easily found the ride he arranged for us from the airport, which was in a comfortable van that accommodated my aunt's disability and all of our luggage. The unit is as shown with spectacular views of Galata Tower, Music Street below and the Bosphorus; even more panoramic views are available from the terrace upstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped; my aunt is a great cook so we used it everyday. There are four main sleeping areas and we had more than ample space for the five of us. The beds located near the window are more noisy and are not ideal for light sleepers but there is an interior bedroom that would accommodate them. I slept in a bedroom with a window that looked out at the Bosphorus and woke up to the sounds of the city at dawn. It was hard to beat.
The location is more than ideal. Music Street is a narrow historic street that leads from Istiklal to Galata Tower. As its name suggests, it is filled with stores selling musical instruments. It's lively and filled with cafes. Istiklal, Istanbul's main shopping street, is just blocks away. So is the historic funicular that takes you all the way down to the tramway by Galata Bridge, which takes you to the city's treasure of historical monuments. The ease and accessibility of public transport made all the difference for us because of my aunt's mobility. The building itself has an elevator, which was a must for us. The views and location of Ismail's unit are hard to beat at this price and I would certainly recommend it.
I had a great time at Ismael's apartment, great location exactly as described on Airbnb.
Restaurants, bars, shops and a lot of caffess at not more that 25 mts radiuos.
I went to visit Ismael's fish restaurant I can highly recomended.
Definetly great experience overall, no doubts I will stay at this apartment on my next visit to Istambul.
Thank you Ismael.

The best part of this listing is its location. It two minutes from Galata tower and close to restaurants, bars, and markets. It wasn't far to walk to Sultanahmet and the ferries and the metro were very easy and accessible.
Beautiful apartment. We liked the roof a lot. There isn't really a kitchen, so it would have been impossible to cook.
I very nice experience.
Apartment is clean and well furnished, just as it is shown in the photos. Location in the very centre of Istanbul is a great advantage of the apartment.
Contact with Ismail is very easy as he quickly replies to emails.
Very convenient and nice flat. The location is just great, as you are literally at 15 meters from Galata towers and in a very animated district of Istanbul.
I have an acquaintance with ısmail for 5 years we met at furreya galata balık (seafood restaurant)
and we have seen each others frequently he is exceled in his duty and good a example of gentlemen he knows the meaning of hospitality
I witnessed to the opening of his apartments, made a lot of progress since then. And right now he is one of the few people that know how to answer the needs of guests in hospital business
And I consider myself lucky that I have also decided to do the same business with him by his help and advice.
His building has a nice view and has a restaurant I definitely recommend you this experience. Housekeeping will do the cleaning every 2 or 3 days. and location of the building is very central minutes away from
famous land mark Galata tower and further the path there is istiklal avenue and tram stop is also around the corner 5min.
I strongly recommend to dine there you will love the seafood and he offers some goodies like firs night complimentary dinner at his restaurant who booked the apartments.
to your kind consideration
