We stayed in these apartments for five nights and really enjoyed it. The apartments are part of a restored town house in a quiet location but only a short stroll from shops bars and restaurants. The neighbourhood has a very chilled feel about it and has easy access to public transport that will get you to all the main sights quickly.

The pictures don’t really do the apartments justice. We stayed in the Blue suite, which we got to up a very narrow and windy staircase. However Ahmet who met us grabbed the cases and was up the stairs in no time leaving us to follow. The apartment was stunning, with wood panelling, beautiful wallpaper and period furniture. There is wifi available, which worked fine. The bathroom was, fully tiled & very spacious There was a separate WC and kitchenette plus we had a small balcony allowing us to look out across the rooftops of the city.

A big selling point for me is the team who work there. They are very welcoming with lots of helpful information about the city, sights and culture. The service from Dilek and her team is outstanding. And finally don’t miss the café they run, we had breakfast there everyday and it was delicious. The coffee was the best we had in Istanbul.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights in this lovely little hotel and could not have enjoyed it more. First, the neighborhood is an island of quiet in a wonderful but often chaotic city. The hotel itself is a masterpiece of renovation. Historical details have been lovingly preserved, but the facilities are thoroughly modern. Air conditioning, wi-fi, comfy furniture, luxurious bathrooms - not just a place to sleep but also a place to relax. On the ground floor is a terrific coffee shop. The staff and hosts are unfailingly friendly, generous and efficient. In future visits to Istanbul, we will always stay at the Heirloom.

“Beautiful renovated house in vibrant neighborhood”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

In march 2013 we stayed a couple of days in one of the apartments in Heirloom in Cihangir, Istanbul. The house has been renovated in a splendid way, with respect for its history. The owner can tell you the interesting story of the building. The apartment is great, fully equiped. It is quiet, clean. Beds are fantastic. Downstairs The owner rruns a small cafe, great place, very good food and service. Nice place to have a quiet breakfast or lunch. It is all done with great love and respect. The owner is very helpful, if you need any help or information.

“Idyllic retreat in the heart of 'real' Istanbul”

We stayed in the top loft room (Galata Tower) of the Heirloom Istanbul for 4 days in Jan 2013. It was a fantastic stay! The building (located on a small backstreet, but only minutes walk from many shops and restaurants) has been beautifully restored in a tasteful manor reflecting the history of the property with great wood work throughout. The bath and kitchen are were immaculately clean and well maintained, the bed was very comfortable, and staff are very friendly and eager to make your stay perfect. The amazing top floor view of the Galata tower and old Istanbul were a real highlight. Highly recommend for anyone who want to feel like a local during a stay in Istanbul!

My two friends and I traveled to Istanbul in October 2012 and were fortunate enough to stay at the Heirloom. What a very special place! Our one-bedroom apartment was gorgeous and charming. The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed. The owner, Dilek, was so caring and thoughtful, and it was a joy getting to know her. I can't recommend the Heirloom enough!

At the begin of october we had a trip to Istanbul. We stayed in Heirloom Istanbul for 4 days and it was very nice. The handcrafted wood mobiliar amd the ecological ideas, the lovely details and modern comfort of the apartment built a harmonical atmosphaire. We could visit the highlights of the city by feet and the famous Istiklal caddesi was only 5 minutes by feet. Living in such beautful suite in a hectically city was a phenomenal luxus.

Very good location, very quiet even with open windows at night and yet only a few minutes walking distance from Taksim Square and Istiklal Street. Excellent, if you prefer a family-like atmosphere in an authentic old-Istanbul environment. Mrs Delik and her staff are very friendly and helpful. Turkish breakfast in the small patio is an experience of its own with the house speciality "Siphon Coffee".
Hotel Heirloom is somewhat hidden and not easy to find – even Taxi drivers don't know it! Be prepared to climb stairs – but it's worth the effort!
