Sparkling clean5 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

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.

We also offer a selection of 'experiences' with our local guides, to help you build your own genuine and memorable perspective on the city.

This was an excellent location to explore İstanbul for the first time. It is right in the middle of Galata, close to all sights and amenities but still quiet. The apartment itself was spectacularly beautiful. We enjoyed the original features such as the high, brick ceilings, larg…

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.

This airbnb was in a perfect location and absolutely adorable. Spent a weekend here for a girls' trip and we were happy we chose this place! There was a slight issue with the water heather but it was fixed within an hour. The hosts are very responsive.
