Hello Dear Guest(s),
I am Baret – the host of this beautiful flat. Let me introduce you to our comfortable, cozy and quiet apartment featuring multiple flats – all managed and professionally maintained by my team. We are here to make sure that you absolutely LOVE your stay with us in our recently renovated building located in the heart of Istanbul, Taksim Square.
Our building is just a leisurely stroll away from Taksim Square, which is home to many city attractions and shows day and night. This is not only an incredibly interesting place for visitors, but also the locals of Istanbul with numerous local shops, coffee houses, cafes, Turkish kebap houses and taverns. Our building is located on a street that is one parallel to Istiklal street, which is the main avenue going through Taksim. This area is alive 24/7, but the building is shielded from the foot-traffic and the noise due to its location. Thus you will be both very close to attractions, but far enough to enjoy a comfortable night of sleep.
Many of our guests love staying in our apartment because of its close proximity to some of the main landmarks in Istanbul. Be sure to visit the old city ruins in Cihangir and Galatasaray neighborhoods and enjoy an afternoon Turkish coffee among the local antique shops of Cukurcuma.
Expect to mingle not only with foreign tourists with their cameras, but with loads of locals in Beyoglu district. Turkish people are known for their hospitality, so despite the occasional language barrier, you will feel right at home as you’re wandering the streets. Browse through the local shops for high-quality items at bargain prices.
The Neighborhood: Taksim Square
Istanbul spans across 2 continents: Europe and Asia. Taksim Square is located on the European side of Istanbul. The district is considered to be the heart of the city. Whatever Times Square is to New York, Taksim Square is to Istanbul. It is a popular meeting spot for both locals and travelers.
The square is located at the Northern side of Beyoglu neighborhood and easily accessible from other districts by public transportation. You will be able to listen to street musicians, window shop from local and global stores, taste different cuisines of Turkey (from meat-centric kebaps to Turkish mezzes), visit museums, art galleries, parks and even visit night-clubs if you’re interested.
Either take a stroll on Istiklal Street or walk down the hill to Kabatas, which is the entrance to Old Town. In this part of Beyoglu neighborhood, you will be able to visit 17th century churches, Ottoman mosques and take the tram all the way to the Spice Market. The apartment is also walking distance away from Galata district, with the world-famous Galata Tower. Be sure to bring your camera to take the view in and listen to occasional street performers!
We have 5 different flats in our apartments, which are all studios with capacity ranging from 2 to 4 people. So please check the details regarding the specific flat. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Every studio consists of a living room with a sleeping corner, a small kitchenette and a personal bathroom. All our flats are comfortable, cozy, large and beautifully furnished. Each flat has everything you need to make sure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay in Istanbul.
Every flat comes with comfortable sleeping arrangement, a pull-out sofa, Air Conditioning, dining table, a fridge, a kettle, a cooker, fully equipped kitchen, an LCD TV with satellite and free Wi-Fi internet. An Air Conditioning unit is a must for humid Istanbul days, so we made sure to include a unit in all our flats in addition to 24/7 hot water and heating.
How to Get There:
It is easy to travel to Taksim area because it is so centrally located. It is possible to take the subway (called Metro in Turkey) or the municipal bus service which runs 24/7. It is also easily accessible by taxi or car service.
Our Pricing & Service Policy:
Our prices are per flat, not per person. There are no additional prices or security deposits to staying in this clean, furnished flat. If you need additional services during your stay, please get in touch with us and we will do our best to accommodate. We have an on-site cleaning crew, which might be able to provide additional cleaning/maintenance services for an additional fee if you need additional service during your stay. If you were to need in-city transportation, city guides etc, we will get you in touch with reliable and affordable service providers.
Once Your Arrive:
I personally welcome every guest to make sure that they arrive and check-in safely to our flats. I try to answer any questions you might have at your arrival or during your stay. I will show you around the building, your flat and deliver you your smart key (a smart card, which will open your door).
If you need any help during your stay, I will be more than happy to help you with questions, local tips, suggestions and orientation concerning Istanbul. I was born and raised in Istanbul, so I’d be happy to make sure to help you in my home town.
Your comfort, privacy and security is of utmost important to us. This is why I think guests who value the same aspects enjoy our apartment located in a quiet neighborhood of a central neighborhood.
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me through the site. I will try to answer any additional questions.
Looking forward to welcoming you!
