About this space
Our large and design apartment is on the 1st floor of a grand historical building in a peaceful street very close to Galata Tower which is one of the most historical, iconic landmarks of Istanbul/Turkey. It is placed at a perfect pivot for exploring this city. Cosy and boutique cafes, upmarket restaurants, independent design shops, galleries and wine cellars are all within walking distance. Our large flats welcomes large groups and families since 2013.
The apartment is unique, characteristic, very well maintained one of the typical Galata Apartment. It is with original wall frescos, brick walls , heigh ceilings, wooden floors remain in their authenthic beauty with it’s historical ambiance and architecture. The flat is thus decorated with some antique pieces complimented in harmony with today's furniture, with a creative and modern touch. Flat design and all creative design of sofas, chairs, lamps and tables belongs to me. It is a great honur to get instagram like from Ikea Interior Designer Henrik. I think location wouldn’t have been better than that. It’s worth to say ‘this is real centre ‘ and just step away to everything whatever you need. While your stay, you will be a couple of minutes away from all kind of food, water, change office, Bank Atm’s, metro, tram, bus, attractive events, restaurants, cafe's, antique shops, shops, night clubs, pharmacy, hospital. Most well known Mevlana (Rumi's) house is one-minute distance.
