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.
