This recently renovated and decorated two bedroom and two bathroom apartment is located on the ground floor of a 19th century building right in the historical neighborhood of Galata on the European side of Istanbul can accommodate upto 6 guests.

The space

This quiet, cozy and nicely decorated apartment is located on the ground level of a 19th century historical building in the heart of the city, Galata ,Beyoglu. This fully renovated apartment, which has actually been published in the Home Art Magazine on March, 2013 has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a living room with a kitchen. One of the bedrooms may be considered as the master bedroom with a 140x200 cm bed and its own private bathroom & shower. The second bedroom has a 160x200cm bed and a very convenient wardrobe. The second bathroom & shower is located in the living room for the use of other guests. The apartment can accommodate 4+2 persons with the pull out sofa for two in the living room. In the living room, there is a stylish bar table that seats up to 6 people. In the apartment all of your basic needs such as sugar, salt & pepper, soap, washing powder & softener, dish washing tablets, cleaning agents, kitchen sponge, toilette paper, paper towel, etc. are provided.
Location of the apartment is just the best. It is literally couple of hundred meters away from the Galata Tower, steps away from very nice cafes, restaurants, shops and a few minutes away from the very well known famous Istiklal Street on which you will find a lot of bars and pubs to enjoy the Istanbul night life 24/7. Sishane metro station which you will use to get to the new city is just 4 minutes walking distance away so is the Galata Bridge on which you can easily jump on a tram that will take you to the old city, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet area. So, basically the location is just not beatable especially for the new visitors of Istanbul.

If I may be more specific about the location. Shortly;
Walking Distance (these distances are actually taken out of the “(website hidden) Map” and are supposedly to be a little bit shorter):
•Galata Tower - 200 meters - Galata Tower is considered as the landmark of Istanbul for the last 700 years.
•Istiklal Street and Metro Station – 4 minutes : From this metro station, you will easily get to the most popoular neighborhoods such as Nisantası, Levent, Etiler, Istinye, etc. for dining and shopping.
•Karakoy District – 5 minutes
•Karakoy Tram Station – 5 minutes. From this station, by tram, you will get to all histocical touristic places such as Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Sultanahmet in less than 15 minutes
•Karakoy Ferry Pier – 7 minutes
•Galata Bridge - 7 minutes
•Tunnel - 5 minutes
•The Museum of Innocence – 10 minutes
•Spice Bazaar – 15 minutes

We had a very nice stay at Melis' apartment. The apartment is as shown I. The pictures, so we weren't disappointed. It was clean and well maintained. Melissa had left us some snacks for our arrival. We didn't meet her during our stay, but her cleaning lady let us in and I was able to contact her throughout our stay. Her flat is located in a great little artistic neighbourhood with great cafes and shops. There were also some more touristic streets a couple minutes away and the Galata Tower was five minutes away. My friends and I enjoy walking, so we walked a good 30 minutes or so to most attractions (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Bazaar), but you can easily get the tram near the apartment. You'll love staying at Melis'. Many thanks!

Melis made our stay extremely welcoming. She showed us around the apartment, which was beautiful and explained how things worked. She left us a bottle of wine and some snacks as well. The neighborhood was also amazing. The apartment is located right by the Galata Tower which seems to get very busy. There are quite a few shops, coffee shops as well and great restaurants. The apartment is also conveniently located by the tram. BTW she also provided us with a tram card. It was a great experience to be housed by such a kind person. I recommend this space to anyone wanting to have a comfortable time in Istanbul.

When arrived we were pleasantly surprised by such warm welcome and hospitality. Melis, you are the super host! As for the apartment, it is really nice, comfortable and good located. It is not far from the ferry and Galata bridge. And we easily walked to the center of Istanbul. It was definitely good choice. Strongly recommended!
