A spacious and well-lit top (5th) floor apartment in the center of Cihangir. The bedroom has a small balcony and sleeps 2. There is a separate office room. Enjoy a magnificent cityscape. Close to restaurants, shops, galleries, and public transport.
This tidy apartment has abundant windows, allowing for natural light and beautiful cityscape views. It is also in a prime location, especially if you are interested in the arts. The streets are lined with outdoor cafes, teahouses, and restaurants and there are plenty of cool, funky shops that specialize in vintage clothing, independent designers, and antiques, among others. The neighborhood is very friendly and walking distance to anything you might want to explore in Istanbul, and public transportation is just a short walk away. The apartment is also on the very top floor, so you needn't worry about neighbors living above you.
Wireless internet, kitchen, bathroom, washing machine (and a drying rack for your clothes), hot water, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, elevator, office/working space, essentials (linens and towels), garbage pick up, small balcony off of the bedroom.
Please note that the bed is a mattress without a base and it sleeps two people.
Interaction with guests
I will be traveling, but I will be reachable via e-mail and phone, and you will be in touch with my friend who will give you the keys and help you get into the apartment and get settled. I will also leave a map of Istanbul and a list of fun things to do during your stay.
Of course, I ask that you don't throw any crazy parties or trash my place. And that you kindly water my plants. :)
My name is Seyma and I'm a 27-year-old book editor and writer, and I recently returned to the US after living and working between Istanbul and Utrecht for two years. I'm originally from Turkey, but grew up in The Netherlands and the US (upstate New York). I am seeking a room to sublet/rent in NYC, as I will move there on Sept. 1, 2015.
