Welcome to our studio apartment on first floor of a residential building only in 50 meters to the Blue Mosque, Hippodrome square in Istanbul. We have recently renovated this unit in September 2014 and designed for our guests with modern facilities.

The space

Unique architecture, our large studio apartment located on 1st floor offers extra space and comfort with a double sized bed and a sofa which becomes a large comfortable double bed as well. Like all our other apartments, you will have extra space to relax or entertain, space to work and if the mood strikes you, you can even prepare a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom is fitted with bath/power shower (30 squaremeters).

Guest access

While retaining its period features, our apartments offer uncluttered modern luxury for everyone from the single business/leisure visitor to couples. Maximizing light and space, each room is furnished in an elegant, international style that exudes quality and comfort.

Interaction with guests

Please ask us if needing several apartments in the same building or location, we have this feature also. Apartments ranging from studios for couples to three bedrooms for larger groups of friends or families offer independence and discreet privacy coupled with the comforts and service you expect from a five-star hotel. Staffed on-site 24/7, our professional multilingual staff will assist our guests with requests from finding you a table at the area's best restaurant to organising tours all around Turkey.

Saban's apartment was located in a perfect spot - literally the heart of Istanbul's old town. Very easy access and Saban's team, Muhammed, was very helpful and nice (especially after a long haul arriving at 5 in the morning). Apartment was enough for 4 people and we also made use of the kitchen to heat breakfast, which was great! Clean towel and sheets was provided and the apartment was cleaned every morning. Recommended!

Saban was a great host, and we had a wonderful stay at his apartment. It looks just like the pictures - very clean, well decorated, and super comfortable. The balcony is a bit smaller than it appears, but adds great charm. I did have to work during my stay, and his wifi was strong and reliable. I also appreciated the desk in the room, and that there were a lot of outlets. The apartment is in a wonderful location. While it has more of a neighborhood feel, it’s walking distance (maybe 15 minutes) to the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque and other attractions. Also, be sure to head the other direction a few blocks (towards the water) for more nightlife and cool looking restaurants. We didn’t discover this until our last night in Istanbul! Saban was also a great host. He offered to set-up a car service to and from the airport, provided information on various tours, responded to my messages very promptly, and was flexible with check-in and check-out. Thank you for a fantastic stay! I would happily stay with Saban again, and I highly recommend his apartment to others!

Saban's apartment was great, spacious, clean and it has everything you need. It was little difficult to find it though, and during our stay the neighbors were really noisy. Great location in Sultanahment, within walking distance to all the main attractions in the area. Saban was extremely nice and made us feel like home even though we didn't get to meet him in person. Overall, I definitely recommend his place.

We were not taken to our booked accommodation, however Saban explained what the problem was and was very apologetic. We were given a room and he changed us after a couple of days to a larger apartment which was very spacious , clean and nice, with a comfy bed. This was also near the Blue Mosque and very central and convenient to everything. Saban was very helpful in organising transfers from and to the airport . Any issues or questions we had, he was readily available, nothing was too much trouble.

Saban was a great host and promptly responded to all queries before and during stay. However the apartment is really old and hasn't been renovated - furniture and fittings were old and damp. Looked nothing like the pictures. No view from the room. Location central though, 10 min walk to Blue Mosque
