I am a professional tour guide in Turkey.
I speak English, Greek and Portuguese.
I also live in Cihangir and I am really happy to live in this magnificent neighbourhood.
In fact, Cihangir is only 5 min. walk to Taksim Square/subway and main bus stops from where you can reach of all parts of Istanbul.
Additionally, it is close to ferry docks (Kabataş, Karaköy, Eminönü) and the tram which takes you to the Old City - the Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, the Blue Mosque and fabulous Santa Sophia.
