This huge, stylish and elegant apartment offers a unique hamam bathroom where you can relax on a warmed marble slab to the sound of water flowing from the antique carved sink. The shared terrace has gorgeous views across the Golden Horn to the Old City. We also offer a selection of 'experiences' with our local guides, to help you build your own genuine and memorable perspective on the city. Our apartment is on the first floor – one flight of original marble stairs – of a grand and elegant 19th century building very near to Galata Tower. The building entrance is on a characterful cobbled street, packed with intriguing boutiques and cafés. A few floors up on the roof-top, the shared terrace has gorgeous views across the Golden Horn to the Old City. You’re invited to take your drinks or meal...This huge, stylish and elegant apartment offers a unique hamam bathroom where you can relax on a warmed marble slab to the sound of water flowing from the antique carved sink.

We also offer a selection of 'experiences' with our local guides, to help you build your own genuine and memorable perspective on the city. Our apartment is on the first floor – one flight of original marble stairs – of a grand and elegant 19th century building very near to Galata Tower. The building entrance is on a characterful cobbled street, packed with intriguing boutiques and cafés. A few floors up on the roof-top, the shared terrace has gorgeous views across the Golden Horn to the Old City. You’re invited to take your drinks or meals up to the roof terrace any time you like, for a very special experience of the city. It’s about 3 minutes walk to Sishane metro station, less than 5 minutes walk to Tünel funicular and a short downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 5 minutes walk up the hill. This apartment boasts a unique hamam shower room where you can relax on a warmed marble slab to the sound of water flowing into the antique carved sink: perfect after a busy day exploring. In addition to the hamam shower room there’s a second large shower-room with marble counter-top and another roomy shower. The three bedrooms are stylish: two doubles and one twin, each with chic velvet headboards and high quality crisp white linens. The twin beds can be pushed together if preferred. The bedrooms are arranged around a large and atmospheric central hall with comfy seating, great for snuggling up with a good book. The open plan kitchen-living area is very spacious and sociably laid out. The brand new kitchen is chic and well-equipped, with high-end appliances including a dish-washer. Freshly-upholstered vintage sofa and chairs invite you to relax and there’s a bar table for snacking. A double doorway leads into a separate dining room with a large oval dining table and chairs. Original dark wooden floorboards give a warm feel and all doors are elegant dark wood originals, adding lots of character and spirit. The ceilings are extremely high giving a relaxing sense of space. This apartment is a very big 130 m2 in total, serene and restful with a quiet, solid grace. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people and a seventh/child on a fold-out bed in the master bedroom is possible. Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a couple of minutes’ walk away. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 12 minutes by public transport or 20 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 10 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 15 minutes. There are many taxi ranks around and some secure car parks too.More

We absolutely loved our stay at Julia and Tarkan's beautiful apartment! It was literally steps away from Galata Tower and the rooftop was - in our opinion - even better than the top of the Tower. I would also highly recommend their apartment if you're...More
