Istanbul Apartments is an all-around fantastic spot. Units are clean and ready to use upon arrival, and though not luxury by any means, they are very comfortable and include unique touches missing from many larger hotels. I stayed in the top floor apartment and got a lot of sunlight, but from what I could tell many other units, especially those facing streetside, were similarly graced.
The building, located in the more modern Beyoglu section, is very near to good nightlife such as bars, restaurants and cafes, and two blocks from the sea of humanity that surges through Istiklal. It's a pleasant 15-minute walk to the tram that crosses the Golden Horn into historic Sultanahmet.
Istanbul Apartments provides a home away from home experience, which is perfect for independent visitors more interested in a functional space than in corporate hotel amenities like elevators or a gym. I would heartily recommend it to anyone staying in the city for a few nights or a few weeks.
