Please note that pick up service from the airport is possible upon your request.
The flat is in a historical building situated in the Galata area close to Istiklal Avenue that takes you through the heart of Istanbul's commercial and entertainment Pedestrian Boulevard, leading to the famous Taksim Square.
Central for all travel connections. (i.e. 5 minutes walk to the conventional ferries, tramway and Şişhane subway station.)
Less than 10 minutes by tram to get to the old city (i.e. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, several historical turkish baths, Grand Bazaar)
2 minutes walk to Istiklal Avenue
10 minutes walk to Istanbul Modern Art Museum
10 minutes walk to the Spiced/Egyptian Bazaar
Neighborhood is safe, with lots of tourists during the day but not crowded like Taksim Square, and is exciting with its vibrant narrow streets to be discovered.
The apartment is very close to Galata Tower on a beautiful quiet street. Famous designers’ shops are located on the street, and it's often used as a site for filming commercials because it’s considered one of the most charming streets in Istanbul.
Museums (i.e. Istanbul Modern Art, Pera), exhibition galleries, large stores, restaurants, bars, food markets, mosques, churches, synagogues are all within walking distance.
The 3-bedroom apartment is situated on the second floor,
Building was constructed 150 years ago but newly restored.
It has atmosphere and some history. In a part of Istanbul that is somehow inbetween.
Not the distinguished upperclass-comfort-perfumesmelling goldclass, and not the conformity of new buildings.
Perfect heat insulation. Apartment doesn't have airconditioning however massive walls keep the apartment quite cold.
First room has a doublebed and a comfortable couch, second room has a doublebed and a mattress on the maltese balcony. (Galata glimpes from Maltese Balcony)
Each room measures 14 square meters size with 3.5 m. high ceilings. The flat is 120 square meters in total. With comfortable full-size beds, you'll sleep very well.
Second room has a doublebed and a drop down couch.
Third room has a doublebed and is attached to a bathroom.
There is one huge bathroom with a large tub and shower, plus one smaller bathroom.
You can chit-chat with your friends while you are cooking in the big kitchen, and eat in the lovely dining room.
Floors and ceilings are made of beautiful wood.
Fast ADSL connection and free wifi throughout the apartment..
Other Basic Amenities include dishwasher, hair dryer, quality house linens and towels, washing machine, iron and ironing board, fridge/freezer, and spring water.
I have been hosting foreigners for three years. If you have any special wishes please let me know and I will see what I can do.
House rulesHouse rules are pretty much simple and rational I would say. You should really feel like home but also respect the place you are accomodated in, meaning not kicking the doors and walls, not throwing things to each other, not breaking house staff. Keep it down after midnight.
Yes, other people are also living in the building.
Due to having an old flat and a wooden structure, as you can imagine the sound insulation is not perfect. That's why I'll ask you not to walk with 'high yield shoes' in the apartment
It is not usual to listen to the music loudly in the apartment.

Reviews of this property
Fatih was really helpful!
We had a nice stay in the flat and found us well hosted. It was a good idea to let the journey from and to the airport organize from Fatih. € 35,-- per way was the best deal we could get and everything worked perfectly.
Thank you for the nice stay in your flat, which is 2 minutes walk from Galata tower and 10 minutes from Tünel!
We can recommend Selma as a guide through Istanbul. She is a really gift. And the € 150,-- per day are well-invested. Ask Fatih for a guide!
Thanks a lot!
Perfect location in the middle of Galata for sightseeing, eating and relaxing. Fatih was a good host and arranged perfectly our transport form and towards the airport. In total a highly recommendable accommodation in the old part of Istanbul.
Everything nice and clean it was taken good care of us arrival went smoothly downhill almost all successful in all accommodation successful holiday. Apartment is centrally located in a bustling quarter.
Alles schön und sauber es wurde sich gut um uns gekümmert ankuft lief reibungslos Abfahrt auch fast alles in allem gelungene Unterkunft gelungener Urlaub. Wohnung liegt zentral in einem belebtem viertel.
We have the same apartment, only get the 3rd floor of this house. It is located in a side street, just a "few steps" away from the Galata Tower, and is an ideal and central starting point.
The apartment was very nicely decorated, but unfortunately the cleanliness would improve (especially bathroom / WC and kitchen).
But very particular has been the warm welcome of Fatih. All arranged by him things have worked out perfectly (pick up service from Airport, Istanbul Kart etc.), you can rely on him. He has given us all the important information, even made us a little tour of the neighborhood and thus allows us a great start.
Many thanks to Fatih for friendliness and helpfulness!
We stayed as a family (4 adults and 2 children) very satisfied.
Wir haben die gleiche Wohnung, lediglich im 3.Stock dieses Hauses bekommen. Sie liegt in einer Seitenstrasse, gerade einmal ein "paar Schritte" vom Galataturm entfernt und ist ein idealer und zentraler Ausgangsort.
Die Wohnung war sehr hübsch eingerichtet, wenn auch leider die Sauberkeit (besonders Bad/WC und Küche) zu verbessern wäre.
Ganz besonders ist jedoch der herzliche Empfang von Fatih gewesen. Alle von ihm arrangierten Dinge haben perfekt geklappt (Abholservice vom Airport, Istanbulkart etc.), man kann sich auf ihn verlassen. Er hat uns alle wichtigen Infos gegeben, mit uns sogar einen kleinen Rundgang durch das Viertel gemacht und uns somit einen super Start ermöglicht.
Vielen Dank an Fatih für die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft!
Wir waren als Familie ( 4 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder) sehr zufrieden.
Perfectly located apartment near the Galatatower. Many places on walking distance. The apartment itself was convenient en clean with fine beds. The host Fatih was very helpful.
We were four of us and had a wonderful week in Fatihs apartment. The location is perfect. Thanks for everything.
Wir waren zu viert und hatten eine wunderbare Woche in Fatihs Wohnung. Die Lage ist perfekt. Vielen Dank für alles.

Very nice apartment, great location, modern and comfortable. Fatih is very warm and provided information about places to go and was always in contact when the requirió.súper recommended.
Muy buen departamento, muy buena ubicación, moderno y cómodo. Fatih es muy cálido y brindo información acerca de los lugares a donde ir y siempre estuvo en contacto cuando se los requirió.súper recomendable.
The host is incredibly helpful, and he took his time to instruct us about our ability to get around and see what we wanted.
Incidentally, we could call him if we wanted help.
The apartment had what we needed, no luxury, but the location of this charming area could not be better.
The availability is not recommended for the disabled, as there is no elevator, and the apartment is on the 4th floor.
We were really happy with our vacation in Istanbul, there are lots of experiences,
Værten er utrolig hjælpsom , og han gav sig god tid til at instruere os om vore muligheder for at komme rundt og se det vi havde lyst til.
I øvrigt kunne vi ringe til ham hvis vi ville have hjælp.
Lejligheden havde det vi havde brug for, uden luksus, men beliggenheden i dette charmerende område kunne ikke være bedre.
Tilgængeligheden kan ikke anbefales til gangbesværede, da der ikke er elevator, og lejligheden er på 4 sal.
Vi var rigtig godt tilfreds med vores ferie i Istanbul, der er masser af oplevelser,
Top location, top flat
The Terrace is definitely worth it even if the neighborhood is not reassuring.
