Istanbul is a very hilly city but our flat is situated on a non-hilly district. It’s a flat walk to Taksim and transportation hubs.
Therefore, it’s especially recommended for those who cannot climb up the hills of the city or simply doesn't want to!
Minutes away from the hectic neighborhoods of the town, secluded in a quiet and green corner, with very easy connections to the major parts of the city, Osmanbey is one of the few places where you can live right in the heart of the lively city yet experience a peaceful and instinctively Turkish accommodation.
Very functional, neat, warm and clean room set for basic standards. A single bed of 90x200 cm, a spacious wardrobe, a chair and lots of shelves for your stuff! The dining table in the living room is also used for studying/working. Speedy wi-fi, 24/7 hot water and adjustable heating system.
This 3 bedroom shared apartment features a spacious living room with a balcony that has an open view up front, which is a rare quality in this district. Furnished with quality, you'll find a flat screen TV and a computer at your disposal. Very homey, comfy and cozy, you'll love coming back home after a busy day of sightseeing!
The kitchen includes anything you would need to have; dishwasher, oven with 4 ring stove, toaster, kettle, microwave and all the other appliances.
The bathroom is spotlessly clean and has a lot of space; you can use the washing machine and dryer for your laundry. There's also an extra WC for guests.
Beddings, duvet, towels, hairdryer and basic toiletries will be provided.
Every Thursday, the flat is thoroughly cleaned.
The apartment is new and very clean. The flat is on the 4th floor and there’s a lift.
Rooms have keys for maximum privacy. Keys to the room and the flat will be given upon your arrival, so please let us know about your arrival details and we will do our best to make your visit as comfortable as possible! We would also be happy to help you with recommendations about what to do, where to go and how to!

You can also enjoy a nice walk to Taksim, the cultural center of the city and be there in 15 minutes. After a night out, it’s very safe to walk back home. If you take a taxi, it’s only 10 TL to get there.
And, Nişantaşı, the fancy shopping district with many nice cafes and restaurants is only 10 minutes away on foot. Moreover, a huge shopping mall is located only 10 minutes walking distance away.

I am not that easy to please, but Idil and Basak are two fantastic hosts. Very helpful, very friendly. I felt took care of and welcomed. They also are a great source of information, if you want something more than a standard city-break. The fact that they have few flats gives an opportunity to meet other people from all around the world and make some great friends. Highly, highly recommended.
