Buse is a great contact person: we arrived w/ different flights around 11 PM and she arranged a joint pickup for the ride to the apartment where she (despite the late hour) was happy to receive us and to explain everything in detail. The apartment is beautiful in an old charm way. Nice old creaky floors, great ceiling height, great views of the Bosporus and nearby town, and light from two sides of the apartment and a third aspect towards a ventilation shaft (we are two architects travelling with 3 20+ children and notice these things). It is furnished in a relaxed but useful way, sitting areas, eating area and with a bookshelf full of recent guidebooks. No need to bring your own! (BTW: the best one is by far the Time Out guide. Great articles and very useful maps. I had bought the Lonely planet one, but it really wasn't up to par. There are 3 copies in the shelf :-).
The kitchen is very well supplied w/ dishwasher and everything you will need. Since everyone praises the terrace first, I save that for last: an incredible experience and only two floors up! Also there are two: one facing southeast (Asia and the Bosporus w/ the bridge) and the other southwest with an great Sultanet view. I watched sunrises, sunsets, had meals and even a few nice cigarettes (even though I don't usually smoke anymore...) up there. It's really worth the stay by itself. The area around Golata tower is touristy of course and crowded with a selfies army, but once in the apartment you are clear of that, and within walking distance to most things to see. The apartment is very quiet, being so high up.
Highly recommended! Only negative comment would be the 5th floor location without elevator, but that didn't trouble us. Nice but a bit worn staircase with marble tile landings (cracked). Also the toilet could have been turned 90° and facing the room for better function (I'm 1,93 so it was a bit a bit jammed). To buy food I went all over the hill, only to find the best market almost below the tower (on the street that descends towards the bridge). Enjoy your stay!
Great apartment super nice location. Anywhere close to both old and new part gedeelte.Vlakbij the bridge and port with fish restaurants. The layout of the apartment is very nice as the pictures.
Amazing view from the terrace. We enjoyed super (2 mothers with children studying with supporters). Everyone was wildly enthousiast.Een highly recommended.
Geweldig appartement super leuke locatie. Overal dichtbij zowel oude gedeelte als nieuwe gedeelte.Vlakbij de brug en haven met leuke visrestaurantjes. De indeling van het appartement is erg leuk net zoals de foto's.
Waanzinnig uitzicht op het dakterras. Wij hebben super genoten ( 2 moeders met studerende kinderen met aanhang). Iedereen was laaiend enthousiast.Een echte aanrader.
We spent 4 days and 5 nights with seven people spent here. The apartment is well equipped and furnished with care, communication simple and very nice.
The absolute highlight is the view from the hotel's own rooftop terrace and spared the climb to the Galata Tower, the rise in the apartment on the fourth floor of the gym. In this way, at least a couple of angefutterten in the surrounding restaurants calories burned!
We would not hesitate to come back, thank you!
Wir haben 4 Tage und 5 Nächte mit sieben Personen hier verbracht. Die Wohnung ist hervorragend ausgestattet und liebevoll eingerichtet, die Kommunikation unkompliziert und sehr nett.
Das absolute Highlight ist der Blick von der hauseigenen Dachterrasse und erspart den Aufstieg auf den Galataturm, der Aufstieg in die Wohnung in der vierten Etage das Fitnessstudio. Auf diese Weise werden zumindest ein paar der in den umliegenden Restaurants angefutterten Kalorien verbrannt!
Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen, vielen Dank!
We arrived in 4 people in the apartment, located next to the Gallata tower. Centrally located, it is rather spacious full-service to live in good conditions. The big plus of this apartment is the terrace which is just amazing. I highly recommend it!
The property has fully complied with our small group. The apartment was comfortably furnished, clean and it was all there needs what man or woman. We felt like in another world away from home. The roof terrace could have been better with chairs and it lacked privacy, the last stairs were abenteuerlich.Der view compensated us and we spent every night at her. Also arrangements were processed promptly and we were very pleased. Staying in this apartment will help that Istanbul will always be an unforgettable experience for us
Die Unterkunft hat unserer kleinen Reisegruppe voll entsprochen. Die Wohnung war gemütlich eingerichtet, sauber und es war alles vorhanden was Mann oder Frau braucht. Wir fühlten uns wie in einer anderen Welt und doch zu Hause. Die Dachterasse hätte besser bestuhlt sein können und es fehlte ihr an Gemütlichkeit, auch die letzten Treppen waren abenteuerlich.Der Ausblick entschädigte uns und wir verbrachten jeden Abend auf ihr. Auch Absprachen wurden zeitnah bearbeitet und wir waren sehr zufrieden. Der Aufenthalt in dieser Wohnung trägt dazu bei, dass Istanbul für uns immer ein unvergessenes Erlebnis sein wird
Apartment very well located, beautiful terrace with magnificent views of the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. Definitely recommended!
Appartement très bien situé, superbe terrasse avec magnifique vue sur le Bosphore et la Corne d'Or. A recommander sans hésiter!
We had nice 5 days in Istanbul fantastic that you were 4 trim levels, but slightly above, the sun came up, the view over the city was amazing. Value for money was ok. Small modifications were not necessary in our time.
Wir hatten nette 5 Tage im fantastischen Istanbul, die 4 Stockwerke waren Trimm dich, aber etwas weiter oben, ging die Sonne auf, der Blick über die Stadt war grandios. Preis-Leistung war ok. Kleine Umbauten hätten nicht in unsere Zeit fallen müssen.
We, 5 adults have enjoyed the stay in this great apartment very much. The location is ideal. Right next to the Galata Tower and surrounded by nice shops and pubs. Thanks to the advice of our landlady, we found great restaurants. But the greatest thing is the roof terrace with a fantastic view of the city and the Bosphorus. We will definitely be back! Petra
Wir, 5 Erwachsene, haben den Aufenthalt in dieser großen Wohnung sehr genossen. Die Lage ist ideal. Gleich neben dem Galata-Turm und umgeben von netten Geschäften und Kneipen. Dank der Tipps unserer Vermieterin haben wir tolle Restaurants gefunden. Aber das Größte ist die Dachterrasse mit einem traumhaften Ausblick auf die Stadt und den Bosporus. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder! Petra
Wonderful location and the apartment is superb. A lift would make things easier but otherwise, I rcommend this place. Thank you again, Buse. Pierre & his team
The apartment was spacious and really wonderful--the photos give a truthful impression of its beauty. The view from the terrace is simply terrific--in fact we skipped visiting Galata tower, as there was no point waiting in queue for a view of the city and the golden horn (and the tower itself) which we had without effort on the terrace. Buse was a very friendly and helpful host--many thanks to her. As another guest has called the appartment 'a bit worn down': I would rather say the apartment is refurbished (kitchen and bathroom are up to modern standards) without sacrificing the original character while still keeping it affordable. If you prefer a modern apartment with its Home Depot/Ikea look, there are plenty available.
