This place is a lovely renovated and clean. The neighbourhood is an exquisite gem, a quiet village feel tucked away in time. Close to shopping centres and the Sulymaniye Mosque (7 minutes) It is 13 minutes from the Grand Bazaar. Very authentic.
The Place is a sweet stay in the city center yet a quiet local neighbourhood. Good people all around, many small grocers on every corner, markets, barbers and family owned shops. The Astoria 10 minutes to istiklal Street, old tramway and Taksim Square by bus. Vezneciler tramway station. The real treat is SehzadeBasi Mosque, a 2 minute walk, a huge complex of Ottoman structures, school, old camel station turned restaurant, pillow seating on the floor, exquisite dining, music, full ancient deal.

Hi, I have lived and worked in Istanbul for 15 years in tourism. I have worked in the hotel, transfer and tour business. Having my own business is what I enjoy most. I have worked as hotel managers, restaurant manager and also in the textile business. I am pleased to offer apartments and options for visitors to Istanbul to enable them to enjoy their stay in Turkey as part of my growing accommodations business.
My hospitality and genuine approach to visitors is right up there with the best of Turkish hospitality. You will not be disappointed. I enjoy making sure my customers are comfortable, feel secure and have everything they need to make their stay relaxing.
I am happy to offer an introductory explaination and orientation of the area. Thank you and
looking forward to seeing you.
