Amazing apartman that recived 10/10 in my review because of it's location and the view. The VIEW is what makes this place special. Amazing view, and absolutely best location to be in Istanbul. Just 50m from Galata bridge. Only 200m from Galata Tower, Istikal Cadessi. The owner, Nukhet was nice, she speak english very well. We had nice time and... More

Let me start by saying that personally I couldn't have asked for a better stay in Istanbul. That being said the location of the apartment is not for everyone. It is located in Karakoy near the Galata bridge. You can walk across the bridge to the historical Sultanahmet district, the Galata tower is within walking distance as well and so... More

I do understand the previous viewers’ ratings were broken off. This place is in front of ferry terminal and fish market, plus outdoor seating cafés are just underneath so it’s very livery atmosphere which might be annoying for someone who is looking for peace and quiet accommodation. However, for me, this place is a wonderful location and clean, managements are... More

When you first arrive it is quite a shock to see the little narrow street where this apartment is located. However, when you get inside it is simply lovely. Everything is white and CLEAN! We had two adjoining apartments and both were excellent. One room overlooked the Bospherous where the ferries dock - we could have sat all day and... More

We spent there recently one night and although one doesn't expect any luxus it was even worst as expected.Room bit dirty, very noisy, very poor and dirty area, the toilet got broken...Advice-dont book the rooms with sea view on the lower floor, the fish smell is unbearable and its everywhere.Overall dissapointing accommodation, we won't come back for sure.

We have traveled extensively internationally, and I have never come across an apartment quite like this. We had 5 people in our party- and the apartment is nice, but the location is in a very dirty, poor area. Upon our arrival, we were quickly ushered in by a very sweet woman who was helpful, but we all thought to ourselves,... More

Our family (5) spent a week here in the 3 bedroom apartment on the top floor. Each bedroom has a modern en suite bathroom and a large comfortable double bed. The living room / dining room is large and easily accommodated the family in the evenings and at breakfast. The apartment has a small galley style Ikea kitchen which was... More
