Our apartment is in a well-kept historic building very close to Galata Tower. It's attractive and comfortable with architectural details. The street is full of neighbourhood character yet quiet at night, with Şişhane Metro only 2 mins walk away.

The apartment is great, clean, central, and spacious. The stay has been wonderful and Tashkin (who met us) was great, friendly and always was there if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend staying here again. Thank you.
