This stylish yet homely apartment is on the 3rd floor of a historically grand 19th century building not far from Galata Tower. It's quiet, cosy, sunny & atmospheric. A few floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has views across the Golden Horn. The streets below are a characterful mix of cafe-restaurants, boutiques and residential apartment buildings.

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

A really beautiful flat in a nice neighborhood. The flat is very clean and well equipped. Everything was well organised to welcome us and for the check out. Driver was on time for the airport. Also Julia and Tarkan are very nice and reactive.

We've been busy, building up a collection of lovely historical apartments in Galata, our favourite part of Istanbul. We've personally renovated most of them and stay in them ourselves whenever we can. Very recently we've added a sweet flat in the UK's Cotswolds into the mix. 1…
