    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8
    I'm a travel writer who rents flats wherever I am in the world, most especially Istanbul, because the neighborhoods are the best part of this city. I like to find roomy flats that I know other world travelers will enjoy and this one is one of my favorites.

    Located on Cihangir Square (in Beyoglu), this lovely flat is surrounded by sidewalk cafes and old time eateries of all types in the bohemian neighborhood of Cihangir. Get to the sites in just minutes, but feel like you actually live in Istanbul in a quarter, according to a recent Guardian article, that 'is ranked among the best places to live alongside Portland, Oregon, U.S.; St. Pauli, Hamburg, Germany; Mauri, Hawaii, U.S.; and Santa Cruz, Tenerifte, Spain. This is an Orhan Pamuk kind of neighborhood. You'll still pass wood...

    How to get there
    Airport: Ataturk: 48.0 km
    Ferry: Kabatas and Karikoy: 2.0 km
    Our driver will pick you up at the airport and deliver you to the door of your apartment where a greeter will await you. After you get settled in you'll feel comfortable walking everywhere from this flat. There is a taxi station across the street for inexpensive rides to more distant sites, and the tram is just a 10 min walk away. The metro at Taksim Square is about a 7 min walk. The streets in this area are relatively flat, unlike much of central Istanbul. Easy walking!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in September 2014

We were a group of 2 mums and 3 young adults who enjoyed the convenience of having our own little lovely home in a central location in Istanbul. Although not far from Taksim Square and busy roads, this apartment and its immediate environs feel almost like stepping into in a little village. I am one who adores the sound of the call to prayer, as being so atmospheric, so I wasn't troubled by the close proximity of a small mosque. In fact, that made our stay a bit more special. (ear plugs advised for those who might think otherwise). We appreciated our late night arrival being accommodated so smoothly, and the arrangement of transfer from the airport. The kids explored the city while I attended a conference at the university, within walking distance. Plenty of local shops to pick up food for the kitchen; great to have a washing machine & drying facility; and just generally a place to be recommended with heart. Only improvement would've been an extra set of keys and clear... more

Wij hebben ons appartement als ruim en comfortabel ervaren waarbij de afwerking hier en daar iets te wensen overliet (rolgordijn slaapkamer). Het is gelegen op een ideale locatie midden in het uitgaansleven en op loopafstand van het drukke centrum met het Taksimplein en de Galatabrug.

Je stapt je appartement uit en zit meteen tussen de eethuizen en ervaart meteen de sfeer van Istanbul met zijn tientallen taxi's en het bruizende leven tot diep in de avond/nacht.
Wel moet je de nabijheid van de moskee als buren accepteren met vooral in de vroege morgen het gebed waar je even aan moet wennen. Verder is het appartement een uitstekende uitvalsbasis voor je uitstapjes in Istanbul (halte tram, haven veerboot etc). Kortom een uitstekende keus voor iedereen die Istanbul wil gaan bezoeken.
