Five nights in this beautiful apartment were not enough. Just a couple dozen steps to the base of the galata tower! Amazing rooftop view. And the apartment is so beautiful. My travel companions were so happy when we arrived that we had found such a lovely apartment. I would happily stay here again!

Great place, right next to Galata tower. Close to restaurants, a small supermarket, cafes and shops. Fantastic view from roof, really enjoyed the hammam, and they also provided a tram/ bus pass. You just had to add money into it. You just need to walk down the hill to the bridge, and take the T1 tram line into town. Clean bedrooms, great wifi, nice kitchen. Would stay here again.

I will totally and strongly recommend the house. I have lots to write. To start with 1. The location is perfect, not too far from the airport, right next to Galata Tower, close to the market and restaurants, few mins walk to the Metro station, right next to the Taksim Square 2. The house is so tastefully decorated. The home is very welcoming and is well equipped with everything required, with the personal Hammam, it gives a perfect Turkish feel 3. The view from the terrace is beautiful. The view of the sea, ships, blue mosque, museum etc is completely amazing to spend the evening and lounge around. The sunset and the sun rise is very scenic as well 4. The hosts are equally great. They ensured we had the most comfortable stay and made it convenient with all the information shared through their property manager

We loved our stay in this elegantly decorated and extremely well-located apartment in Galata, a cool Istanbul district full of shops, bars and winding side streets. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with plentiful hot water and a chic and well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are effectively cooled by air con units in the hottest weather – the sitting and dining room are warmer. The apartment is quiet – surprisingly so considering how lively the surrounding streets are. Head up three or four flights of stairs to get to the roof terrace. Great views, if a little basic. What made it special was the tasteful and individual style of the apartment, the original features and the great location, out of the somewhat crazy city centre but near enough to make Aya Sophia and other major sights a pleasant walk across the Galata Bridge. We would definitely rebook.

Amazing apartment, great location, beautiful city! I would 10/10 recommend for anyone who is looking for a nice place in a good location. This apartment is minutes away walk from the Galata bridge, and just a few steps away from the Galata tower. The apartment has a shared terrace with an amazing view, almost the same view as the Galata tower. Inside the apartment, everything was great, just as the description states. The private hammam is a nice plus to relax and enjoy the place. My family was so happy to stay here and want to come back soon!

The apartment is in excellent location, a stone throw away from Galata tower. The view from the roof top is simply breathtaking. The apartment was extremely clean, check-in was very smooth, and hosts were very responsive. We ended up getting the airport transfer through the hosts which was convenient and reasonably priced. I highly recommend the apartment and the hosts.

Julia & Tarkan User ProfileJulia & Tarkan is a superhost.

Tarkan and I have been busy, building up a collection of lovely historical apartments in Galata, our favourite part of Istanbul, most of which we've personally renovated and all of which we stay in ourselves whenever we can.

We met in Istanbul, his home city, while I was there for a photography assignment. Over the last 15 years we've led international lives together, based in Istanbul, Singapore and now England, my original country.

Along the way we've raised our son, Eren, across the cultures as we've steadily grown this holiday apartment project, our second baby. We see it as a way to find balance in our family life and to always have a home in our best-loved city.

We understand from our own experiences, what makes a great city-break stay and we try our very hardest to deliver it to you in Istanbul. For this we've won i-escape's global Guest Award for 'Best City Apartment' two years running.

Your questions and booking will be handled by us and then, on arrival, Tarkan's lovely family and our friendly team with their natural Turkish hospitality, will welcome you to your apartment, pass over your keys and explain practicalities and the neighbourhood. You'll have as much or as little help as you choose and we're sure you'll soon feel at home in the cosmopolitan and very welcoming local community.
