Located in the heart of Beyoğlu, 100m from the Galata tower, the apartment is orientated east with best light ever and a has a small, nice balcony with a nice view on Bosphorus. It has a double bed room and a convertible couch in the living room.

The space

The flat is a single bed room facility with a double bed (120*200) and a living room with a convertible couch (150*200) suitable for two people.
The living room has a balcony heading east, with a nice view on the Bosphorus, where you can have the most lovely time with a couple of drink on a summer evening. It is a small but cosy flat, it can easily and comfortably host 4 people. The kitchen and bathroom are clean and practical.

Cagri was a great host, really adaptable with our travel plans. He provided us with instructions on how to reach a meeting spot from where he took us to the flat himself. He gave us wonderful advice on what sights to see as tourists, but also showed us the way locals experience Istanbul. He was always available to answer any questions we had. The place was perfectly situated close to the metro station and walking distance from both the historical part (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar) and places where local people hang out (local food and nightlife). When back in Istanbul, we will definitely contact Cagri again!

Cagri and his girlfriend are a very friendly, helpful and welcoming couple. We really enjoyed staying in their apartment in Istanbul. Located in a lovely area with many cafes and restaurants(Galata Tower is a few meters away) but also close to some of the most touristic areas (Sultanahmet, Gulhane Park, Istiklal Caddesi & Dolmabahce). Some highlights: - the kitchen is very well equipped with absolutely anything we needed, and even more (spices, teas, full stock pantry, etc) - the view from the balcony is fantastic (we took most of our meals there). - the internet connection was fast and reliable (we stayed for a month and haven't encounter any problems). - the apartment is in close proximity to a supermarket (Sok) - although the food variety is quite limited, except from fruits and vegetables which are plentiful. Some advice: - The area can be quite loud during the morning (due to its cental location) so make sure to have a pair of earplugs with you, especially if you are a light sleeper (like us). - The bed in the bedroom is a bit small for two people, but you can sleep on the sofa in the living room if you want (it's also much quieter there). Overall, it's been a pleasure to meet Cagri and his girlfriend and we sincely hope to meet them again.

Without Cagri and his apartment, Istanbul would not have been the same !! Cagri is very helpful, kind and welcoming and his beautiful and cosy apartment is very well located, in front of the Galata tower. We highly recommend it :-) ! Sans Cagri et son appartement notre séjour à Istanbul n'aurait pas été le même. Cagri est un hôte idéal et l'appartement est impeccable sous tous les aspects. Nous le recommandons sans hésitation !

Istanbul would not have been Istanbul if I did not stay at Cagri's. Everything that I wanted or needed was within a walking distance. Be it stores, supermarkets, restaurants or historical places. I seldom had to use public transportation, even though two different subway lines were less than 5 min away. The house is very comfortable for two people.

This apartment is such a gem! The apartment is cozy, clean and in an amazing location. I would not change a thing! I travelled with a friend and stayed for about 5 days and we both fell in love with Istanbul. Cagri was so accommodating above and beyond what was expected and was so nice and welcoming. Definitely recommend this area and this apartment :)
