Located at walking distance to Sultanahmet tram stop, Blue Mosque, hagia Sofya, Cistern, Archeological museum n Topkapi Palace. We also walked to Grand Bazaar. It was closed on Sunday.
There is a good sized supermarket, good 5-10 mins walk uphill (not good for people with bed knee). We also stumbled upon a small nice restaurant on our way back from the market closeby (not sure the name). Very nice owner, gave us a lot of freebies. The food was also tasty. There are several other restaurant along the way, tried one with the fish as special but not so tasty and more expensive. Better eat at the restaurants along the tram route towards Grand Bazaar. Try the restaurant nearest the small park with lots of cats.
Stayed in level 1, 2 bedroom apartment. Very clean rooms, kitchen and bathroom. Very equipped kitchen just no oven (one of the best I ve been to). 2 double beds with extra blankets n pillows.
Quite a small tv with only news for English channels and the dining table is in the second room. But for the price and location, this is good enough. One communal washing machine at the basement with washing powder provided. Nice!
My only complain is the transfer from SAW airport as we had to wait for an hour to get all the passengers in, and my 10 year old daughter had to sit on my lap for the 60 mins ride. We had asked for private transfer, but I guess the driver got greedy as Hamza, the owner was in the US during our visit. Luckily, the brother said we could pay less for our trouble.
All in all, a very nice aparment, good host, nice view from the roof top. Definitely will stay here for our future visits and will recommend to friends.
