Casa di Bava Istanbul

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We usually opt for apartments rather than hotels for the obvious benefits (in our opinion) - cook for yourself, washing facilities, larger rooms, home-style comfort, quiet. In this case we were not disappointed. The Galatasaray Flats were excellent. Clean, modern and secure if a very handy location. The tram to the Old Town is a short walk (two stops to the Old Town - 5 mins). A major shopping street is five minutes walk and the area generally is quiet and safe. The apartment is well appointed with great views over the city. Cooking facilities adequate, separate bedroom and washing machine. Overall very comfortable at a reasonable price. Don't be concerned by the outside appearance - once inside the large doors you will find a modern apartment complex over several floors served by a lift. The manager is extremely helpful (speaks fluent English, German and Turkish) - and is happy to provide information on where to visit in Istanbul, how to get there and so on. If you prefer apartments to that of hotels, then do consider Galatsaray Flats.

Room Tip: Ask for a view (higher floor) … the apartment on the ground floor has no view but a small garden are...

Great apartment, there were four of us, but would be very comfortable if it's just a couple, as it's a one bed flat. The pull out sofa bed was a good size. The apartment is very new, nicely decorated with high ceilings. Fully equipped kitchen, with a dishwasher and washer as well. We were on the top floor, and the balcony has a nice view. Location is great.
The taxi rank is literally one minute down the road, but do beware, they took us round the block and have no idea where they were going. Always make sure you have the written address and the phone number of the destination, seem like their usual thing to do, ring and ask for directions.
Sat nav, or smart phones seems to be beyond them.
Great stay overall.

We stayed in the penthouse flat at Galatasaray Flats and enjoyed it immensely. The owner and his assistant were interested, and interesting. They did their best to make us feel at home and gave us lots of local information. There is a supermarket within walking distance. A recommended (Istanbul Eats) Kebab restaurant within 100 yards and bars just across the road. The taxi rank at the bottom of the street is a huge plus even though it is a short downhill stroll to the tram station.
The accommodation was modern, well equipped and very spacious. it added greatly to our stay. The views are superb and the enormous balcony with comfortable furniture and large table was great. Inside there were 2 double bedrooms and a well appointed bathroom. The water was rather cool to cold on a couple of days but did warm up when the heating was put on. It is fair to say the weather was pretty miserable during our stay and the solar heating would not have worked. The large living room included a kitchen area with washing machine, fridge, freezer, cooker dishwasher and coffee maker (with coffee pods supplied). We didn't use the flat screen TV much as there were only Turkish channels which wasn't a problem for us. There was also a large ding room table inside.
Cihangir area is a little bit edgy and arty with lots of antique shops and shops selling individually crafted items. It was very noisy on Saturday night. I think the locals had a party until well into the small hours. The main eating street of Istiklal Caddesi is but a short hop uphill. However it is downhill on return. We felt very safe at all times and wandered around on foot most of the time.
The only fly in our ointment was the young assistant offering a special deal with his friend to run us to the airport at a cost of double the local taxi rate! Needless to say we refused!

Room Tip: We only saw the penthouse but it was a great space.
